BestThe Godfather Part Two
WorstCaddyshack II
This isn’t subjective. As an expert in all things I’m right about this. I’m just wondering what you misguided Flutherers might think.

@Astro: When I saw your question, those were the exact two movies that came to mind. Nice.

Best: The Godfather Part Two.
Worst: Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 and Son of the Mask.
Future worst sequel:S.Darko. (Donnie Darko sequel)
Although it is not out yet, I see no absolutely no way that movie could be good.

Army of darkness is the best squeal ever. EVER. The worst one ever is….
Any Chevy chase national Lampoons movie

For worst, a tie between Hannibal (sequel to The Silence of the Lambs) and Speed 2: Cruise Control (one big ad for the cruise ship industry)...four or so hours of my life that I will never get back.

@Scrumpulator: I would have to say that this is a better squeal.

Worst: Matrix Reloaded
Best: Terminator 2

@scrumpulator: The Evil Dead trilogy is the best trilogy EVER.

Scrumpulator's avatar

@Les- It is, I am so glad you think so

Best sequel.. um… one that come to mind is Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Way better than the first (Goldmember sucked hard though). Worst? The Fast and the Furious sequels were all terrible.

Do not see the matrix as some sort of sequel…
Best: The Godfather II
Worst: Cruel Intentions 2 (is the worst film I’ve ever seen!)

Best – Empire
Worst – Clones (Technically a prequel, I know, but a sequel from the franchise perspective).

Indiana Jones: Best; Crusade, worst, Crystal Skull.

AstroChuck's avatar

Crystal Skull is far and away better than Temple of Doom!

SuperMouse's avatar

Best: The Godfather Part II
Worst: Any sequel other than The Godfather Part II.

Knotmyday's avatar

@chuck; not agreed. The dialogue was much more interesting in temple

Best: Dark Knight
Worst: Batman & Robin

mannnnn jballou stole my answer ^_^

ill change it…kinda
Best: Dark Knight
Worst: Spiderman 3 (what a let down. That movie could have been so awesome…. but it was sooooo far from that.)

mrjadkins's avatar

So far, I agree with the other Bests but I liked Empire Strikes Back as a great sequel.

Worst to me was Ring 2. I was so scared by the first one. The second one was awful. That and Blair Witch 2. How could they do that! So bad that they nearly ruined the first one.

Best: Godfather II
Worst: Pirates of the Caribbean or Species II

AstroChuck's avatar

Which Pirates?. Dead Man’s Chest or At Worlds End? The first was definitely better than the second. I haven’t seen the last one.

marinelife's avatar

I meant Dead Man’s Chest. I also did not see the last after seeing the second although I have been told it was better.

St.George's avatar

I fully agree with @Supernutjob

Only good one: Godfather II
Worst: Any other sequel…Film makers who want to make a sequel should just make another movie and pretend it has nothing to do with the first one.

Knotmyday's avatar

Man… I forgot to mention that I loved, LOVED, A Fish Called Wanda, and went to see Fierce Creatures expecting it to equal the first. What a horrible disappointment that was.


AstroChuck's avatar

Fierce Creatures wasn’t actually a sequel to Wanda.

Knotmyday's avatar

I know, Cleese tried to categorize it as “not a sequel, but an equal…” despite the cast remaining the same, and similar characterizations, the movie still fell far short of the mark. Broke the hearts of many, mine included.
You’re right though, falls outside of the parameters of the question. still wanted to vent though

gooch's avatar

Most sequals are lame but I like me some Star Wars sequals. Just check the revenue for verification.I guest the worst would have been something that I never saw the original to because it was too lame.

simone54's avatar

Best: The Dark Knight

Worst: Spider-Man 3

simone54's avatar

Damn Jackson. I hate that we had the same answer.

El_Cadejo's avatar

eh you know, great minds and all.

speechie4eva's avatar

I love all of the batman sequels. If you would consider them sequels. Worst would be um Halloween. Loved the first one but the second… Third not so good

birdland33's avatar

Bar none, the worst sequel of all time IS Exorcist II: The Heretic

AshlynM's avatar

@speechie4eva I agree.

That was the worst one. That annoying tv commercial drove me nuts. I have no idea why it needed to be part of the Halloween series.
