    OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    Talk over the weekend with friends about movie sequels that are better than the first movie. Can be trilogies, etc.

    Mine:

    Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum better than Bourne Idenity (which is still great)

    The Dark Knight better than Batman Begins (love Batman Begins though)

    Godfather Part II better than Godfather

    Terminator 2 better than Terminator

    Toy Story 3 over Toy Story 2 and 1

    One I debate all the time is Aliens over Alien but I can't. I love them both equally.

    Re: OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    X2 was better than X-Men
    If you count it as a trilogy The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is better than the other two man with no name movies.
    Star Trek II is ridiculously better than the original Star Trek movie.
    I'd also argue the new Star Trek Into Darkness reboot is better than the original reboot but not as drastic.

    Some will say Aliens over Alien, but no way, they're different but nothing in the genre is clearly better or more influential than the orginal. Same with Star Wars and ESB.

    Re: OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    LOTR: The Two Towers and Return of the King both way better than Fellowship

    Re: OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    Empire Strikes Back
    I think all the Harry Potter films got better as it went on for the most part.
    Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers




    Eyes closed, head first, can't lose.

    Re: OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    I'd say that Empire is better than ANH. Also Aliens is better than Alien. I won't agree on LOTR. I thought that the first movie was the best.

    Re: OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    Empire is definitely the best Star Wars movie. No doubt about it

    Re: OT: Sequels that are better than the first movie

    The Dark Knight. As much as I love Batman Begins as well as The Dark Knight Rises, there is no doubt this one is the gem of the series. Heath Ledger as the Joker is my all-time favorite acting job ever.

    Disagree! The reboot was a good ride and made me optimistic about getting some fun Trek movies for the first time since the original cast hung it up for good. Into Darkness was just a slog that suffered from today's "dark"=good trend.

    I think i like my Star Trek dark. To me the best entertainment with str trek attached to it was the TNG story of fighting off the Borg. I also like Star Trek II the best of ots cast and into darkness is a bit of a pseudo remake.

    No question. Best example out there. X2 is another big one for me.
