Aliens

Highlander....

Bwa-ha-ha!

Sorry, I really am only kidding with this one. Although I shouldn't even really joke about Highlander 2 as it acknowledges its existance, which is NOT a good thing to do.

....I was being serious about Aliens though.

Aliens was good, but I think it was just a really good B-Movie. It took the terror the Alien represented in the previous film, and made it into a pawn, a minion. We were terrified of it in Alien, but in Aliens it was, ok, set up the drone guns, we're safe. So for me, Alien is the best one. Aliens is really very good, but not the masterpiece everyone calls it. Alien 3 is underrated.

I prefered The Godfather 2 over the first one.
I tend to enjoy The Empire Strikes Back over A New Hope.

Those are the first two that pop in my mind for the moment.

Underrated (Adjective): Not given enough recognition for its quality.

Hmmm, that's a toughie. I would say no, because it is a reboot, thus different continuity. But I don't see why it can't be included. Happy

Might be a bit of opposition to this one but I rate Spider-man 2 as being better than Spider-man, just due to the fact that I didn't have to put up with the c**ppy Goblin in the second one...

Here's one to annoy you people, 'Speed 2: Cruise Control' was better than the first, NOT!! What the hell was Sandra thinking?!!

Anyway, one film comes to mind is Rush Hour 2. It was better and more exciting and funny than the first. Can't to see Rush Hour 3!! Only two more months or so to wait!

Perhaps the most racist mainstream franchise of all time.

I like Superman 2 more than the first one. And I love 'em both but Toy Story 2 might just have the edge over the firstone.

And don't forget Babe 2: Pig in the city.

I found Lethal Weapon 2 is be better han the first one, better villains,story and humour. Empire is better than Star Wars but the Donner cut of Superman II might have been better than Superman, had Donner been able to properly finish it. The DVD cut was interesting but needed a lot of work.

Back to the future 2, one of my all time favorites. Loved the way they integrated the first one. (without having crispin glover back, aka. george McFly)

Yes Ravenwood agree on the Donner cut what a film it would have been!

Die Hard 4 (aka Live Free or Die Hard)  Best Bruce Willis movie since the first Die Hard.

Outrageous statement (although not as outrageous as darth raph's Superman II comment)! Both Die Hard 2 and The Last Boy Scout are better than Die Hard 4.less.

Die Hard 4 had me up until he manages to avoid a jet firing heat seeking missles at him while driving a truck, you take that part out, it would be as good as the rest of the franchise.

As for my two cents about sequals beter than their predecessors:
Attack of th Clones was better than The Phantom Menace
Revenge of the Sith was better than Attack of the Clones
