    I just saw over at dvdempire that the sequel to the movie Zapped! is coming out on dvd June 24. But, where is this 80's classic?? [​IMG] C'mon MGM it has to be somewhere on the schedule?

    Yeah. Another in a long line of sucky sequels being released to DVD before the original greatness (care to name some? I'll start the ball rolling with Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo! [​IMG] )

    I have both on laserdisc, but Zapped Again has a weird defect on side 2 that makes it skip in 1 place, so that's the one I really need to replace. Kinda dumb as far as sequels go but entertaining nonetheless. Whatever happened to the guy in that movie? He reminded me a lot of David Spade.

    Is it possible that music rights are holding up the release of the original?

    Star Wars is a very good example, faltering only because of the "prequelness" factor.

    I was thinking about Rescuers Down Under (with Rescuers still not quite out yet). Or Major League II/Major League. Or Lethal Weapon 4/LW 1-3. [​IMG]

    The Lion King is another good example. We won't have the original here for months, but Lion King II has been out since 1999.

    Ah, but Simba's Pride rocks. [​IMG]

    A lesser example:
    Pumping Iron II before the original.
