10) HIGHLANDER II: THE QUICKENING
We finally discover why they are immortals - they are intergalactic rebels from the planet Zeist, exhiled on Earth. Awesome! I want to see more of their battles on their homeworld! Let's see some more of those rayguns and hover boards. Enough of this Braveheart crap.
9) CONAN: THE DESTROYER
Conan is refined into the badass he should be in this fun, high adventure sequel, instead of the weird, slow paced first one. Plus, you have Grace Jones as the gorgeous Zula, fighting alongside Conan!! Everything is better in this one, especially the costumes.
8) MATRIX REVOLUTIONS
Everything is taken to the next level and beyond in this final chapter! You have Neo flying around! Dudes running on the ceiling during gun fights! Neo fighting thousands of Agent Smiths!And you finally get to see the head Matrix bad guy and where he lives! The best part is the super cool mech-warrior suits the humans get into during the final battle. The only thing to make this movie any better is having Neo in one of those mechwarrior suits doing kung fu!
7) SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE
This is essentially a Superman vs Bizarro movie which they should have done in the first one. It's all comic book flare with great fistacuffs. Plus they fight on the moon! THE MOON!! Skip the first 3, this is all you need in a Superman movie.
6) BATMAN AND ROBIN
Fox finally wised up and ditched Tim Burton as director. Please keep your lame goth visuals to your own movies. This goes back to how Batman SHOULD be - along the lines of the 60s TV show. We have Bat Ice Skates, Bat-Cycles, great funny puns and even Batgirl! I always say Hollywood should look to the SOURCE MATERIAL and with this one, they do! Plus, you have Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr Freeze! HELL YEAH!
5) STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER
I've never been a big Star Trek fan, myself... until this 5th outing. You get to meet Spock's brother... who hijacks the Enterprise! Then you have Captain Kirk battling the giant head of God! Kick his ass, Shatner! No lame aliens. No lame space ships. No lame space battles. Just Kirk debating a Space God. This is Star Trek at its best! Plus, you get an erotic desert feather dance by Uhuru! AND a three-boobed cat lady!
4) GHOSTBUSTERS 2
I'm not quite sure if this is necessarily BETTER than the first one, but its atleast just as good. The entire cast returns and you have underground rivers of slime, scary paintings possessing people and the ghost of the Titanic landing in NYC! I always thought the giant marshmellow man in the first one was really silly, so they top it with the Statue of Liberty kicking ecto-butt! Plus Bobby Brown does the new, superior theme song! Ok, now that I've talked about it a bit, yeah Ghostbusters 2 is way better than 1.
3) INDIANA JONES & THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL
Finally, Indy steps into the 20th Century and gets to run around in the 1950s. We get to see Indy beat an atomic bomb, fight evil Russians, meet his son and Marion is back! Plus its a crossover of sorts because the aliens from Close Encounters are in it, so you get that cool sci-fi aspect which was greatly lacking in the previous Indiana Jones movies. I just wish he had a chance to pilot the UFO and go kick some Russkie ass! Even cooler, they tease the audience that Indy's son, Mutt, might take up the mantle of Indiana Jones. Awesome!
2) STAR WARS: EPISODE 1: THE PHANTOM MENACE
Finally we get to see Darth Vader's origin, meet a young Obi-Wan Kenobi, and discover where C-3PO and R2-D2 come from! We see how closely weaved the overall story and characters' journeys truly are! They even improved Yoda's design! My only complaint is no Boba Fett, but he shows up in Episode II and kicks ass. Visually, Phantom Menace far superior and more interesting than the outdated boring originals, plus the fight scenes are far more dynamic. The originals also failed to fully explain what exactly The Force was and Lucas explains that too.
You take 2 of the best monsters in the 20th Century and let them fight it out like fucking Ultimate Fighting! The Predators are given some much needed bad mofo attitude, larger weapons and brutal wrestling moves. It's all action and fun, instead of the sloooow, unwatchable first movie. Plus the aliens are now on earth, modern day, which works much better than in space/the future. AVP-R gives us the super awesome Predalien, which I hope is the new standard creature in future Alien films.
