    Sequels that DON'T disappoint

    The Anchorman 2 trailers have got me pumped up- I'm hoping it doesn't let me down.

    We've all been disappointed in sequels before. Some purists will say ALL sequels are bad. There are some quality exceptions in my opinion. Some even better than the original. Here are a few off the top of my head:

    Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
    Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    Jack*** 3D
    Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness
    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

    What other sequels stand up to the original? There must be some I'm forgetting.




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    Wrath of Kahn. Of course, the first Star Trek was so bad, it wouldn't take much for number 2 to do well.

    That said..."KAAAAAAHHHHHNNNN!"

    Home Alone 2 but that's it. From there the rest sucked.

    Agree on T2!

    I really enjoyed Major League II. If Major League is an A, this one still gets a solid B to B+ in my opinion.

    Wayne's World 2

    Ghostbusters 2

    I may get blowback on this one, but Jaws 2.

    Empire Strikes Back of course is awesome.

    How is Jaws 2 > Jaws 1? I can't think of a single aspect that is better. I'll even go as far to say Jaws 4 > Jaws 2.

    Not better, but not disappointing, which I thought was the criteria. Jaws gets worse with each one in my opinion.

    There's your blowback, LindenCy. I was too young to watch them when they came out (parents wouldn't let me). By the time I was old enough, I didn't have the desire. So, believe it or not, never saw one Jaws movie. However, I did read the first book...it was awesome.
