Are we counting Bond movies here? If so, Goldfinger >> Dr. No.

Also, The Dark Knight >>>>>>>>>Batman Begins by a longshot.

And The Good, The Bad & The Ugly beats both earlier Man With No Name flicks in the trilogy.

Anyone here Evil Dead fans? Comparing the 3 movies is really subjective, since they were made under extremely different conditions. I really like the original Evil Dead the best and it is amazing what Sam Rami, Bruce Campbell and a couple other college kids did with just a few thousand dollars. Bruce Campbell's DVD commentary on the movies is amazing and alone worth the price of the DVD.

Don't even get me started on Bubba Ho-Tep one of the greatest coups in cinema history. I've got to pull these out again, I've said too much.

Definitely I'd agree with Superman II....though Star Trek II was more campy/entertaining I preferred the first Star Trek Movie and felt it was the best in the series.

Any movie series/franchise counts. I think the Bond movies are a perfect example.

As far as Trilogies I liked The Two Towers from Lord Of The Rings better than either the first or last in the series.

So even Jason or Freddy Kruger movies can count as well.

Right on; there was just more of an emotional build up to that Battle and then TreeBeard awakening the trees to defeat Saruman.

"Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back"
"Star Trek: Wrath of Khan"
"Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire"
"Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers"
"underworld: Rise of the Lycans"
"Dirty Harry: Magnum Force"
"X-Men: First Class" - though not a sequel per se, it was much better than those that came before
"Die Hard: Live Free or Die Hard" - almost as good as the first one, definitely better than those in the middle
