It feels a bit like awarding Genghis Khan his horse-shoeing merit badge... but if you insist.

1. T2












 ;)

The rest:
Dark Knight
Bourne Supremacy
Endless Summer 2
...a handful of others already mentioned

Hopefully Super Troopers 2 as well. :)

Genghis Khan reference. Nice.

Best movies that are sequels:

Mad Max Fury Road (assuming it is indeed a sequel and not a reboot, but that's a bit murky)
The Dark Knight
The Empire Strikes Back
The Return of the King
The Two Towers


Best sequels that are better than the original:

Mad Max Fury Road
The Dark Knight
The Empire Strikes Back
The Return of the King
The Two Towers


I realized they were the same lists when I got to the end. I didn't spend much time thinking about the order either, pretty sure I like TDK more than Mad Max.

I am not including MCU movies because then it's a whole can of worms. The movies are not direct sequels to each other (except the abysmal IM2) but there is still some unity in things like the Avengers movies. Then you have a situation like the Cap movies, where the third one is barely focused on the title character at all.

Mad Max becomes ambiguous without either " (1979)" or " Fury Road" attached. For a second, I was impressed with your adoration of the former.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Um... I do.

That was random. Has me shaking my head in wonder at the world and how small it can be.

Not really. 1SO worked on the set of The Office. There used to be a whole thread about it, I believe, before the great forum purge.
