This is, I think, the first time I've ever reviewed a move that's a sequel to a movie I never saw. I toyed briefly with the idea of watching "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (2008), but then I thought 'eh, it's a Brendan Fraser film. If I'm going to waste my time re-watching Brendan Fraser films, I'd much rather watch 'Blast from the Past.' Then the impetus was lost. Then I forgot both films - "Center" and this new one - existed. Then I took a nap. Then I thought "Holy crap! I don't have any new content today! C'mon kids, we're going to the mall!"
So here we are.
