Default What sequels were better than the first installment

The other movie thread inspired this thread.

The other day we were having a discussion at work on what sequels were actually better than the first installment. Our list was pretty short.

My nomination would be Aliens. Although Alien was an outstanding movie I thought Aliens was a notch better.

Blade 2 perhaps?

Maybe Superman 2.

Honorable mentions: Godfather part 2 and Empire Strikes Back.

Definitely Road Warrior. Mad Max was decent but Road Warrior blew the first installment away.

Anybody else have a nomination?

Empire Strikes Back

The Dark Knight

Revenge of the Sith (easily better than the other 2 prequels)

Wrath of Kahn

Spiderman 2

Silence of the Lambs (maybe being a little too technical here, but it's the sequel to Manhunter, with just awhole different cast and crew)

Return of the King - Best of the LOTR movies

BTW I don't know if I'd say Godfather part 2 is better than The Godfather. JMO I prefer the original but it could be because I love Marlon Brando.

good call on Wrath of Khan, but saying Episode III was better than Episodes I & II is like saying getting punched in the 'nads is better than getting kicked in the 'nads or head-butted in the 'nads; I'll pass on all of them

Disagree, Manhunter was generally superb. I also thought Cox as Lector was far more unsettling than Hopkins.
