I feel like I'm the only one in the entire world who liked Batman Begins better than the Dark Knight. I mean don't get me wrong, Dark Knight was good and all, but I really liked the character introductions and overall story in Batman Begins.

On that note, sequels I enjoy better than the original:

- Rush Hour 2
- 22 Jump Street
- Back to the Future part II
- Major League 2
- Ghostbusters 2
- Indiana Jones 2 and 3
- Star Wars Episode 3 (better than episodes 1 and 2, but not the originals)
- I kind of liked The Last Jedi more than Force Awakens

Really??!! Wow. "Major League" was a classic. I thought it was assumed that the everybody thought the follow-up was a dud that epitomized the typical sequel.

The only ones I can think of are "Lethal Weapon 2", as ridiculous as the movie was, and "Star Trek 2" (The Wrath of Khan). The original "Star Trek" was just lame. Actually most of them were, except two and four (the whales).

Agreed with Toy Story 2 and 3 being every bit as good as the first, and Shrek 2 being as good as the first. Dr. No is one of the best Bonds, but agreed Goldfinger is better, and same with Frankenstein vs. Bride of.

Another example from animation: Madagascar 2, while not the best ever of its type, is still quite watchable -- which is far more than can be said for the first.

An even better animated example: The Rescuers Down Under is excellent, while the first is lousy.
