I can think of two. Aliens was better than the first Alien Movie AND Terminator II was better than Terminator!

Anyone have any other opinions on sequels better than original movie?????

Aliens was a good movie, but not necessarily better. What it was was a great action sci-fi movie, while Alien was a dark and claustrophobic HORROR movie.

T2 was better than the original Terminator.

Totally agree with both of those statements.

And while I love Godfather II, I don't think it outshines the original. Same with Empire Strikes Back. Great movie, but original is better.

The best sequel of all time has to be Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Spider-Man 2 was world's better than Spider-Man.

X2. Still one of the greatest super hero flicks ever made.

The Dark Knight.

The Road Warrior
is a fantastic movie. Mad Max was horrible. Just horrible. It wasn't just an exploitation flick; it was a bad exploitation flick.

Although you'd never know it just by watching the films, The Silence of the Lambs is technically a sequel, and far superior to its predecessor in every possible way.

..

Speaking of horrible, what about the sequel to Road Warrior? Mad Max Thunderdome was almost unwatchable.

Toy Story 2 is just as good if not better than the first movie.

I don't think necessarily better, but the Shrek movies have all been pretty consistent and funny. I have enjoyed them all.

I was just coming in here to say Terminator 2, but the OP already has that covered.
