Awhile back I posted the Top Worst Sequels.
Today I thought I'd a bit more positive and post.....

(or possibly surpasses!)
(in NO particular order... well, ok, ALIENS is cleary #1...)

You didn't mention Breakdance 2: Electric Boogaloo, this Blog has lost all it's credibility !!! :) That's it's UK title,I understand it was Breakin' 2 in other countries.

I'd say that truly the only sequel that I've seen that was better than the original is Mad Max 2.

But you've got a good list there !

yeah, it was called "Breakin' 2" here, but it still had the "Electric Boogaloo", the most important part.

Those which were BETTER than the original, IMO are:

Road Warrior (leagues better)
Hellraiser II
Toy Story II
perhaps Empire Strikes Back

the list was in no particular order (I'll make a note on the main page).

But I really have no idea what you're saying, because ALIENS is clearly the best movie ever made.
