Where on Earth is The Empire Strikes Back!!!!
^Not a sequel.
More of a continuation of a story not finished from Episode IV.
It's the only sequel I can think of that actually imrpoved upon everything that made the original so great without taking anything away from it. And I will go as far as to say it is also the greatest action film ever made.
aliens blew the original away.
t2 was amazing
Aliens,T2,X2 and Toy Story 2
Mad Max II: The Road Warrior
Unbelievable. Greatest Car Chase Scene Ever.
I chose X2
Awwww................show some love for Mad Max So much better than Thunderdome hehehehe
In america, yes, sequel have sux since the damn of time. But when you look elsewhere, it hasn't always been so.
In Japan, 27 great Zatoichi sequels were made. Akira Kurosawa did one heck of a masterpiece when he made a sequel to Yojimbo, and it turned in Sanjuro. The samurai trilogy telling the story of legendary samurai Musashi Miyamoto played by Toshiro Mifune is another great exemple. In Hong kong, there was 50 sequel to the original Won Fei Hung movie. While I haven't seen even ONE of this wong serie, they are well seen by critics.
The one-armed swordsman's trilogy is one hell of a great exemple. The second one is still my favorite shaw brother movie, and it's a sequel, of course. In the 80's, Jackie chan gave us the excellent Police story trilogy, and a sequel to his first drunken master. Stephen Chow's Chinese odyssey part 2 is such a little underrated gem.
In the anime world, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust's pretty great, and Ghost in the shell is a modern beauty.
The muppet movie by Jim Henson are all great.
And then there's the 27 follow up to the original godzilla, and the 10 sequel to the original gamera. There's also the great Daimaijin trilogy. And the once upon a time in China saga, or the mr. vampire 5 movie stories. I could go, of course.
Heck, there's been so many great sequels that it's impossible to chose, imo. Sniff.
But I think i'll go with Dawn of the dead. It still holds a very special place for me as a sequel which truly expended upon it's original source.
How come nobody's voting for Star Trek II? It was the greatest Trek film ever made!
I voted for Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets
Empire Strikes Back hands down. No need for further discussion.
Out of the list Godfather 2.
Die Hard 3
Lethal Weapon 4
Aliens because it was so different and IMO better than the first movie.
Godfather II, T2 and X2 are all close behind.
So hard to choose... between X2 and T2...
I went with Aliens. I may have picked T2, but I can't think about the terminator now without thinking of that crappy third movie.
Hahaha. I just had a Scream 2 moment .
A continuation of a story? Isn't that the defination of a 'sequel'?
Also, not to rib on you but how is Harry Potter any different? It's a large story seperated by 7 books/movies.
i vote for gremlins 2.
The Empire Strikes Back was originally meant to be a continuation.
For instance, Spider-Man.
It didnt need a sequel but it got one anyway.
Spider-Man 2 had a good story, but it wasnt a direct continuation of the first movie's story
T-2 and Spidey 2
