Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

I recently learned that when inflation is taken into account, the much-anticipated sequel to Anchorman had box office returns that were essentially the same as those of the original.

But, this also makes them stagnant and unoriginal. When considering what makes a movie “great,” we must look to a film that utterly altered the landscape of cinema ; there is only one movie that is universally recognized by critics as the greatest story ever told (even though it largely lacks any sense of a plot and is riddled with jokes concerning genitalia, alcohol, and sex). This movie, of course, is Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Continue reading “The Campaign: Falls Short of My Depraved Expectations”
