Top 5 Movie Sequels

These sequels are not only very good, but part of me wants to say they have to be better than the original.

That will create two different lists.


Is Rise of the Planet of the Apes a sequel? Unlike Batman Begins there are connections to the previous films.

It's not. The continuity would make no sense. Example: Nova is alive in the original Apes but somehow everybody's forgotten humans used to be smart in that timeframe? Also, how would the Statue of Liberty get blown up?
