This Month, Let’s Watch Spiritual Successors


Last month, we padded out the schedule with White House Down, a movie that, while very similar to Die Hard, is not actually a proper sequel. It was a spiritual successor, a movie that feels like a sequel to something but has no story connection. So we figured, why stop with just one?

For the month of February, we’re going to be watching some spiritual successors. All of the movies on this list were picked from the TV Tropes page for spiritual successors, if that information interests you. As always, full schedule is below. Please to enjoy.

  • February 5th – Starship Troopers
  • February 12th – Days of Thunder
  • February 19th – Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
  • February 26th – A Scanner Darkly
