Best movie sequels ever!

Recommended Posts

Andy

Sequels are notorious for being terrible, but are there any films that you think excelled themselves in a sequel?

Might turn this into a like a chart of GBs most popular sequels :p

Personally, my nominations are:

  • Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
  • The Dark Knight
  • Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Prolly more where those came from too. :p

Return of the Jedi was better than A New Hope, also.

X2: X-Men United

I still can't decide which of the Back to the Future movies I like best...so let's go with all of them. :p

And, for some reason, I liked Home Alone 2 more than the first.

Aliens was great. Not better than Alien, but definitely up there.

Does LOTR: ROTK count? Because that was a work of art...

Can I add Episode III when compared to being a sequal of Episodes I and II?

If you want, but it was worse than Episode I. (apart from the Vader-kicking-arse bits) lol

How is it worse than Episode I when Episode I had POLITICS! And Episode III had obscene amounts of Clones fighting and dying!

I like to be controversial. :p

I love TPM. The GOOD parts of AotC and RotS are AWESOMETASTIC; but the BAD parts drag it down to mediocre.

And both Eps II and III had politics too. So shush. :p

Episodes 1, 2 and 3 all had a ton of politics. Episode 1 also had the gungans, reduced the greatest villain in all of movie history into a whiny kid, and had gungans.

I'm sorry... but Episode I had Jar Jar Binks, the biggest mistake in Star Wars since... since... the Christmas Special!

You've never even seen the Christmas Special.

But yeah, it's horrendous. :p

No, Ewoks are better than Jar jar Binks, it's that extreme, that I have to say... yes, worse than those little bears!

Agreed. Ewoks helped win the battle.

Perhaps he was referring to the Ewoks movies/animated series.

the Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan/Darth Maul lightsaber brawl at the end was pretty awesome.

Rush Hour 2 :D

I have never seen an entire theater laugh so much as at that showing.

Rush Hour 3 was not that great. It had its moments...but seemed tired out.

I agree with The Dark Knight. And with Rush Hour 2.

And the Lord of the Rings films, especially Return of the King.

I want to mention Star Wars, but my ratings of them always slip back and forth in order. So meh.

SpiderMan 2 was better than the first. And better than the third.

I think Prince Caspian was better than LWW, but slightly.

Mission Impossible 3 was good, way better than the second, but not better than the first film.

Spiderman 2 wasn't better than the first Spiderman, and Spiderman 3 sucked.

I haven't seen Godfather 2, but I've heard it's even better than the first, so I'll throw the name out there.
