Discuss Charlie's Angels

...and nobody went to go see either...given its abysmal** $8.6** million domestic box office take (ouchy).

I, for one, loved McGee's movies for what they were, a little tongue-in-cheek, not taking itself seriously, loud, fast, booming soundtrack (I still give them both a listen occasionally), THIS reboot looked like it had NONE of that...3 bored looking girls going through the motions...no thanks!

Forgettable average looking girls as the new angels was the final nail in the coffin.

It's not a reboot, but a continuation with a new Angels team, some older Angels (Drew Barrymore and Jaclyn Smith) make a cameo and they reference the others including mention a specific event that happened in the other movies.

Why do people keep throwing the word "reboot" around on obvious movie sequels?

  • Remake - Is a a new version of a movie which repeats the characters and plot of the original. Basically it's a new version of the same movie, though there could still be differences. Example: Let Me In/Let the Right One In
  • Reboot - Is a new version of a movie with no ties or references to the original. It's a different movie altogether. Example: Spider-Man/The Amazing Spider-Man/Spider-Man Homecoming.
  • Soft Reboot - Is a sequel to the original movie though ignores other sequels that may have come afterward. Example: Halloween (2007)/ Halloween (2018)
  • Sequel - Is a continuation of a movie and references events in it as well as other sequels that came before it. Example: First Blood/Rambo
  • Prequel - Is a continuation of a movie who's events tie in or directly lead up to the original movie. Example: The Thing (1982)/The Thing (2011) Actually, Carpenter's The Thing (1982) was a reboot of the 1951 film The Thing from Another World.

Oh? VERY cool that Drew & Jaclyn have a cameo... I had NO clue it was a new team set in the same universe. From the trailers it looked like the same 'ol "reboot" formula, so there was no way to tell.

I think I may have briefly heard it referenced in the pre release promotions that it was set in the same universe but it was easily forgettable.
