Sister Act 2.
Bad Boys 2.
The first one was ok - dumb fun. But the 2nd did not work for me or anyone I Know.
One half decent sequence doesn't cut against it being far too long and having that awful Cuba sequence. It's not often Henry Rollins marks a downturn.
...when she was like 12 or something
The Bourne Supremacy
Dawn of the Dead
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Star Trek 2
X Men 2
Addams Family Values
+LotR Two Towers (although it wasn't hard to be better than Fellowship of the Ring)
There are other good sequels (Aliens, Mad Max 2, Back To The Future 3, Terminator 2, Fistful Of Dollars & Good The Bad And The Ugly) but none of these are as good as their original.
get a bit to CGIy for me
He's right, Fellowship is definitely the best. Two Towers is the worst: meandering and seems to be intent on making as many bad adaptation choices as possible.
Look me in the eye and tell me the 2 hours with the trees isn't boring.
Yes we get it, they speak slowly, but that doesn't mean they have to constantly slow down any kind of momentum the film builds up.
Then you've got the Aragorn falling off the cliff bit with his girl dreams and it's just bllllllllllllllleh.
Guys, wrighty and I are in full agreement and that can only mean this is an objective fact.
that film is the definition of boring.
Terminator 2 and Aliens I prefer to their originals
There are only 'slightly less great' ones
Superman 2 is mostly a bad farce. If you put the ending on the Donner cut you'd have a decent argument but would still be Wong.
Can't think of any sequals actually better than the first!
when i finally was in new york some 16 years later, it was like some kind of holy pilgrimage i had taken.
PLUS that scene at the end in the park makes my heart bleed through my eyeballs
just about edges Raiders Of The Lost Ark for me
and then resurrection somewhere off in the distance
although really i think the first 3 should be considered one film in 3 parts, i prefer alien3 because it's bleak as fuck.
but better than the first two?
but still the first 2 are better
Cubes is just a lazy regress of Alien. Resurrection is the most underated. Okay the last act is shit but before that it's a black comedy Alien movie set in Firefly. Amazing.
Imagine that without autocorrect being a wanker.
But I LOVE this film
The Dark Knight
From Russia With Love
Hilarious, a huge parody of the first, and a huge Gremlin singalong of 'New York New York' near the end. Superb
