To me, IM2 took everything that made the first film great and either kept it or added to it. That means IM2 is the better film.
I think what it is with me is that I have these expectations(I try not to but it's hard sometimes)and although they may not all happen in the film it doesn't ruin anything but it takes me a second viewing to sit back watching it accepting what they gave us. That's why I usually enjoy these movies based on properties I/we grew up on the second time around even more.
I swear it's going to be tough waiting for the Thor film once IM2 comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray. I'll be watching IM, IM2 and TIH back to back most likely a number of months before the release of Thor.
