This is a conversation the staff actually had in Slack the other day: Which sequels are better than the originals. I went all-in on Terminator 2 being the best sequel ever before Emily reminded me that Aliens exists. The rub with those films is that the originals are also masterpieces, making the upward trajectory of the franchise all the more upsetting when they both eventually shat their respective beds.
Over at Reddit, u/KingOfGoldfish decided he wanted people to duke it out in the comments concerning the best sequels made. Some of the answers are correct and others are not correct, as per my opinion (which means nada).
SHOW ME NUMBER ONE ON THE BOARD:
Then there are those that argue TDK is a great movie but not a good Batman movie, to which I say, “huh?”:
Another excellent addition here:
Of course Terminator 2 is in here. I don’t clickbait (much).
A new contender enters the discussion!
That’s a classic choice right there, although arguments could be made that Batman 1989 cannot be topped. Then again, Michelle Pfieffer in a catsuit renders most arguments invalid.
