Best Movie Sequels (Second Movie Only)

What are the best second movies of any series? Star Wars counts as two separate trilogies.
The Top Ten
1 The Dark Knight

Batman Begins was a great introduction, but it wouldn't be Batman without the menacing and truly terrifying Joker, portrayed by Heath Ledger.

Close 123 for me between Dark Knight, T2 and Aliens. But I can't get over Heath Ledgers portrayal of the Joker.

I knew it. This is 100% better than Batman begins

The only movie I've seen at the cinemas that has lived up to the hype

2 The Empire Strikes Back

The original Star Wars was a classic with revolutionary special effects that made it what it is. As much as I liked the original, the sequal added more characts and added on to the orignal story, infact it's my favorite movie. I actually felt like the end opened up the story for the sixth movie more than it concluded the story itself though.

So good people have to say it's on here twice. Because they have nothing better to say.

It's so good, it's on here twice.

So good it's on here twice.

3 Terminator 2

This is a great movie and one of my all time favorite. It is better then the 1st (it was also very good). But what is New Moon doing here, it should be on worst sequels.

My favourite movie ever. Though the first was a classic, this is even better. Legendary.

Terminator was great, but it was missing a lot. T2 solved most everything.

An improvement on the series and turned the tables a bit. Also a fun action film

4 Aliens

Absolutely, by and far, the most fantastic sci-fi action. Ripley easily the best and baddest female heroine ever.

Should be in the top 3 at least. It's definitely a better sequel than Dead Man's Chest, Toy Story 2, or Superman II.

Sigourney Weaver, James Cameron, machine guns and tons of aliens. This one is a shoe in.

Not just best sequel but one of best movies of all time. It's Game over man, game over.

5 The Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers

Battle of Helms Deep still holds up. This movie has aged really well.

A masterpiece created from a book that is even better than the awesome writhings of Tolkien.

Every movie in the trilogy is perfect. But I think Two Towers is the most darkest LOTR movie.

Yep this is number one

6 The Godfather II

What Godfather 1 was considered the best movie of all time. Even part 2 kinda sucks. Nothing can beat part 1.

You can't be serious to be put the Godfather number 5. It is the first ever sequel to win Best Picture.

The fact that it is nearly on par with the original shows how good the movie is.

Robert de Niro as Vito just stole the heart away...Best sequel ever!

7 Toy Story 2

It has the smallest lack of originality, even though the Toy Story trilogy is very strong.

Way better than the rest. The first is great, but the second one is the best. The third, ehh...and I don't know how the 4th one will do?

I like this one over number 3. Out of the 3 this one is the most underrated.

Not as good ad the first, but still great!

8 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Probably the best of the Captain America franchise In my opinion.

9 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

I have the dunken swagger walk down packed. Captain jack sparrow is the best of the best. This is my all time favorite movie. Awesome job Johnny Depp. I just have to meet you one day. You did one hella job.

A severely underrated movie overall but definitely an underrated sequel. I am glad to see it made the top ten.

10 Spider-Man 2

Better than the original with greater characters and a stronger plot.

This movie came out when I was about ten years old. and it still amazes me in its quality. good acting, good cinematography, good special effects, and above all else, compelling plot.

The Contenders
11 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Should be number 1

12 Back to the Future Part II

The first movie is undeniably an all-time classic, which has more class than any movie from the 00's. However, Part 2 delivers even more of a punch when you have to deal with a time paradox, in an alternate time-line. You can't beat these sequels!

Where's our hover boards

13 Shrek 2

It was definitely better than the first. It had a lot of things in it than what the first film ever did. It was more expansive with the characters and it showed more story. The music was perfect especially songs like "Holding Out For A Hero" by Bonnie Tyler

It may not be my favourite second film, but I voted for it anyway because unlike most other sequels, I thought it was way better and more original than its predecessor. Unfortunately, the franchise went way downhill after that.

This one is the best Shrek title. In my opinion, it is way better than How to Spank Your Dragon 2 and the Butt Baby.

I am not a fan of this movie, I like the first one better.

14 The Wrath Of Khan
15 The Lost World - Jurassic Park

I think part 1 and 2 sucks. But my rating is a tie breaker, so I don't which one is better, but Jurassic Park 3 is the worst. Its too short and boring.

In total agreement with the guy below me, execpt for all three, JP3 sucks! Regardless, check tis movie out!

16 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Heck yes! Why isn't this above stupid Star Wars?

17 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
18 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

While it's not nearly as good as the first Home Alone movie, Home Alone 2 is definitely a lot better than its successors.

This movie was good as the as the original. Too bad that this was already the last Home Alone movie that was great.

Home Alone part 1 was better, part 2 is spoiling me New York, I'm going there in 2 days.

Almost as good and classic as the first. And, in some ways, better.

20 Evil Dead II
