[OP-ED] Can We Stop With These Money Driven Sequels Already?

[OP-ED] "It Chapter Two" and the Rise of the Money Driven Sequels

It Chapter Two as of right now is sitting at 66% on Rotten Tomatoes and steadily declining. This, of course, marks yet another example of where a sequel fell well short of expectations.
