  1. Wait … Swamp Thing had a sequel. I knew about the first movie, but it had a sequel?

    I’m not sure whether I’d find this hilariously bad or mind-numbingly boring. I must ask though, who asked for this? Who green lit this movie? Who thought that an overpowered superhero demolishing all of his opponents, with no real threat, would be entertaining? Even with the worst superhero movies I’ve seen, like Shock! Shock! Shock!, Catwoman, and the 1977 made-for-TV Dr. Strange movie, the villain is at least a mild threat.

    1. Yep. A sequel that never should have existed hahaha I honestly think it could fall into the “hilariously bad” category for you, based on previous discussions we’ve had. It’s sad that this was Swamp Thing’s cinematic treatment but at least he got a much more recent TV series (although now canceled) that does it more justice than anything before it!
