I Can Has Meme?

I almost never do these, but out of my deep respect for PZ Myers, and because I don't want to piss off PSoTD and have him bring his awesome (though geographically circumscribed) powers to bear on me, I'll play.
There are a set of questions below that are all of the form, “The best [subgenre] [medium] in [genre] is…”. Copy the questions, and before answering them, you may modify them in a limited way, carrying out no more than two of these operations:

You can leave them exactly as is. You can delete any one question. You can mutate either the genre, medium, or subgenre of any one question. For instance, you could change “The best time travel novel in SF/Fantasy is...” to “The best time travel novel in Westerns is...”, or “The best time travel movie in SF/Fantasy is...”, or “The best romance novel in SF/Fantasy is...”. You can add a completely new question of your choice to the end of the list, as long as it is still in the form “The best [subgenre] [medium] in [genre] is...”. You must have at least one question in your set, or you’ve gone extinct, and you must be able to answer it yourself, or you’re not viable.

First of all, the path of how this ended up here:

My great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is Pharyngula.
My great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is Metamagician and the Hellfire Club.
My great-great-great-great-grandparent is Flying Trilobite.
My great-great-great-grandparent is A Blog Around the Clock.
My great-great-grandparent is archy.
My great-grandparent is Why Now?
My grandparent is Rook's Rants.
My parent is PSoTD.

And now, the questions:

The best movie sequel in SF/Fantasy is: The Road Warrior.

The best “bad” movie in SF/Fantasy is: Planet of the Apes (1968).

The best sexy song in pop is: Glory Box by Portishead.

The best flavor filling in PopTarts is: brown sugar cinnamon

The best remake in SF/Fantasy is: Planet of the Apes (2001).

Jor Jazzar (ditto, but replace [her] with [him])

I'll keep this non-functional vestigial remnant of the meme:

Remember, when you're looking for someone to blame for your problems, the easiest route is to blame your parents. Even in memes!

Ugggh. I don't do "memes". Except when I do. Maybe later, when I'm off-shift.

So, after a little ado, I've done it. My very first meme completion.

Ta-da! And thanks for the nudging.

See ya later.
