  1. I am going to chime in and say Aliens. Although Alien was great and set the stage for several movies to follow I feel that Aliens really found it’s stride and connected with more people and brought the film from suspense/horror to more mainstream action.

    I think often film makers are kind of throwing darts in the dark and every now and again they hit bulls eye and when they do they make a sequel. Sequels often are better because less time is invested in shaping the word for the viewers as it is understood that they already know it so more time can be devoted to raw story telling and entertainment.

    1. Great point! Yes Aliens was a iconic franchise. I think more so than Star Trek and I think that it’s right up there with Star Wars. Aliens debuted at a point in time when the storyline wasn’t completely unimaginable.

      Along those lines, I actually like Gremlins for that reason too. Not realistic, but not so far fetched….

      Thanks for your response!

  2. Terminator 2, Friday 13th part 2, Halloween 2, The Hulk second movie, Hidden Colors 2, Star Wars, Them empire strikes back was better then New Hope and the Return of the Jedi was better then the first two star wars movie, And Grown ups 2.

  3. Godfather 2, Star Trek 2, Mighty Ducks 2, Shrek 2, The Empire Strikes Back, X-Men 2, Spiderman 2, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, Superman 2, From Russia With Love, I could go on…
