Discounting strict trilogies like Matrix, LOTR & Star Wars of course.

We all know that 95% of sequels tend to suck, but over recent years they seem to have improved in quality and even - SHOCK - surpassed the original (as rare as it usually is).

I've included From Russia With Loved because it was the first sequel to a Bond film (and if you don't like it, you can take it up with my lawyer, B. Lowme. :))

So what's the best sequel ever made?
 
Godfather 2. As good if not better than the first.
 
It was tough, but I went for Khan in the end. The first one suuuuuucked so bad and this came along and brought the adventure, characters and humour back into the mix. Great characters, great story, great performances.
 
dude no doubt its godfather part 2, but if u want a movie that was also great asa sequel i would have given it to T2
 
Godfather 2 is one of the only ones on there that i would consider a classic sequel

I don't know, i might consider Rocky II a classic sequel. It was pretty damn good, even though i liked the first one better.

Well that changes everything (yes, including The Matrix sequels). But after those three trilogies, I'd have to say my favorite sequel is... man, this is sooo hard!:(
 
Gofather II out of that list. Duh.
 
I'm torn between GODFATHER II, T2, X2, and ALIENS. If I judge it on best movie, clearly it's GODFATHER, but judging it on improvement from the first one, GODFATHER's in last place...

And why is DIE HARD III on this list, but DIE HARD II isn't?
 
Scooby-Doo 2 is not up there? Somebody is gonna get sooooooooo pissed....
 
And where's Gremlins 2?

Whatabout Poltergeist 2?

Ghostbusters 2?

:confused:
 
Godfather Part 2 is an amazing flick
It goes well beyond the first flick( which rocked as well!)

If we're discounting trilogies... then Dawn of the Dead can't be on their because it was followed by Day of the Dead. And Godfather 2 can't be on their. And Dead by Dawn can't be on their.

Please, please, once again all questions and criticisms about the actual poll must be referred to my good friend B. Lowme ;)
 
Can't just pick one:

T2
Toy Story II
X2
Aliens
 
where the heck is "the empire strikes back"??
 
I voted for Rocky only because I've neer seen any godfather film.And I think so far,all the hype I've heard about it since forever,I won't give it a fair chance even if I watched it.

But the Rocky sequel gave you everything you wanted and literally furthered the story without getting redundant.Yes,Apollo and Rocky go at it again for the climax, but it wasn't the same as the first one.
 
umm try reading the first post, he is not includeing the high class trilogys
