    Movie Sequels Better Than The Originals

    This link was interesting. Although I think they are nuts for stating that Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was better than the original. I thought that and the last one were the worst of the four and it wasn't close.

    Any thoughts on other sequels that were better than the originals?

    Toy Story 2 was good - better than the original? Not sure about that.

    The Godfather part II is an obvious one, tho many would call it a draw (self included).

    Fwiw, I thought after Dr. No each James Bond film got better. Well, at least until Thunderball, anyway...

    I've got a few ,Terminator Salvation, Rocky III, The Dark Knight Rises.
    I guess I have a bromance for Christian Bale, and I liked Rocky III just because I think 3 was the peak of the character evolution for Rocky.

    I'd even venture to say that the most recent Star Trek was as good if not better than the previous one

    I always liked After The Thin Man better than the original, but maybe that's just me.

    Empire was certainly the best of the lot. The most recent 3 were awful.

    Good choice. I got the GF the boxed set of the Thin Man movies for Christmas, and we had our own marathon New Years Day. It was great.

    Evil Dead 2 was better than the first one. Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome comes to mind.

    Also Ride The Lightning is better than Kill 'Em All.

    i prefer the second godfather film. i also like the sequel to 2001, no, not 'better,' but it's a good finale to the story.

    most sequels seem to go the way of caddyshack 2.
