MoS might be true but I'd say the rest indeed are regarded better. At the very least they hit considerably better with the critics(yes, I know critics and audience don't always co-incide) but all of those films(including MoS) were successful without being sequels to pre-existing well received and profitable films. You don't get there without a goodly amount of audience approval. Not on the first try, at least. A sequel can coast on the coattails of a good former film but that's not the case of any of these you mentioned. Two are brand new and two are reboots.
