I am sure there are a lot of bad ones out there (and by sequel you must mean #2 which would eliminate Spiderman 3). Iron Man 2 comes to mind as well as the second Michael Keaton Batman movie. As far as the best sequel, Spiderman 2 is definately at the top of my list. If I want to go back to the early days then Bride of Frankentein.

Hmmm....another good one, Woo! I'd say the WORST sequel ever is: Revenge of the Nerds 2 tied with Weekend at Bernie's 2. BEST: Godfather 2, hands down.

Hmmm, this include prequels? LOL!

The worst has got to be Highlander 2: The Quickening, which not only contradicted the entire backstory of the first film, but was also horribly written, directed, and acted and made virtually no sense. Terrible, terrible film! Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones wouldn't be far behind either.


Despite the fact that I liked Batman Begins better, the best sequel I've seen is probably The Dark Knight because of how it changed the tone of Christopher Nolan's Batman series and introduced new characters like The Joker and Harvey Dent. The film was stunningly shot and the performances are top-notch. The Godfather Part II and Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back are two sequels which were actually better than the original films.

Though I don't really count them as sequels, I'd have to say that The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King were excellent continuation of the LotR saga, but the first film is still my favorite simply because of its tone and faithfulness to the source material.

So this was the question I inspired - I like it!

Best sequel, for me, is a little tough to choose...but I think I'm going to have to go with 'Aliens'. It's not an improvement on the original, but it tells a different sort of story in the same universe and keeps it just as interesting. It's how I wish more sequels were done.

Another contender might be 'Casino Royale,' but I don't know if you can call it a sequel exactly.

Worst? I almost hate to admit I've watched these, but I love the games so much I have to at least give the movies a chance. Sadly, as bad as the first Bloodrayne movie was (and it was BAD), the sequel - Bloodrayne: Deliverance - was a thousand times worse. The lead was different and completely unsexy, and it was set in the Old West (!!) - 'nuff said about that.

Hard to say now. Worst sequel.........of ones I've seen first one to come to mind is Beverly Hills Cop 3. Best, I'll go with Star Trek 2. Yeah ESB or T2 are good too but TWOK is just so much better then the one that came before.
