Back to the Future 2 - What the original did in exploring time-travel possibilities, this did many times over. The original may be better as a coming-of-age story, but not a sci-fi story.

Major League 2 - The original didn't have Jack Parkman or a complex Rick Vaughn character. To me they are about even, but I give ML2 the slight edge. One of the best sports movies ever made.

Empire Strikes Back - considered to be the best Star Wars, with good reason. "I am your father"

Batman Returns - To me the best Burton/Schumacher Batman.

Dark Knight - Best Nolan Batman? (haven't seen the latest one)

Rocky 3 - The peak of the franchise. Spawned the careers of two 80s mega stars - Mr. T and Hulk Hogan. Didn't hurt Sly's career either.

The Godfather, Part II was substantially better than the original IMHO.

I would say:

Once Upon a Time in Mexico beats El Mariachi and Desperado
Missions Impossible 3 is better then MI2 and close to the first one.
Terminator 2 is better then Terminator
Bad Boys 2 better then Bad Boys
Evil Dead 2 is better then Evil Dead
Bourne 2 and 3 are better then Bourne
Rocky 3&4 are better then all the other Rocky's

I sometimes wonder about this one. Personally I dont think anything stands up to Episode IV and the only reason people like Empire better is because in Empire we got "I am your father" and in Episode IV we lost Obi-Wan.

Lots of good examples. But many of them are debatable.

I do agree with "Star Trek II" because the first one was kind of a dud.

would be the only one to play the role again.
Love both of these. If it were up to me, though, Chronicles would be the last in the series and I would make more Riddick films during the time between the two we have. You could do a lot more with the premise of what Riddick might have been doing during that time. In fact you could write just about any story line(s). You have to have Vin Diesel play Riddick. (He could make a fortune doing that!)

That's a great idea. He should make two more himself, it would be like he won the lottery.
