    The two biggest exceptions I can think of are Godfather 2 and X2.
    Aliens! I think Aliens is the best followed by Alien. The others are crap. Alien vs Predator is worse then crap.

    Best of the Best 2 is significantly better than Best of the Best, which is surprising considering there's no James Earl Jones.

    I just saw the new Die Hard and it was a lot of fun. The editing was a little rough, as you can tell there's a lot of dubbing over swearing, but I fully expect an unrated DVD to be released that will make up for this.

    As for sequels...

    The Empire Strikes Back, Godfather 2, Terminator 2, Aliens, Dawn of the Dead, X2...

    All clearly better than the first.

    Others will disagree with you about Empire, T2, and Aliens (never seen the Dead movies), but I won't. I think they're all better. And I think Star Wars, The Terminator, and Alien are great.

    Same here. "The Empire Strikes Back" is still EASILY the best Star Wars movie IMO. I love the dark atmosphere and feeling it has.

    Been to the "Zodiac" yesterday evening with a girlfriend. GREAT MOVIE! Very good suspense, build up, acting, music, story, etc. I 'm definitely going to get this on DVD when it comes out.

    Mourning: seems like we tend to like the same movies. "Zodiak" was a great movie - another movie to look for is "Lookout" those are the two best movies I've seen this year. i think you'd like "Lookout"

    As far as sequels go, Empire strikes back is the best of the 6 movies, Godfather 2 - although I still like the original one better and same thing with T2 which was a good movie, but the original Terminator was better.

    Speed2 might have been the worst movie I've ever seen, and I loved Speed.
    I reallyliked Mission Impossible - the first one, the second and third one I did not like.

    The only other sequal that I can think of that was better than the original was Aliens - but that movie came out about 7 or 8 years later.

    which godfather movie walked you through the life of don corleone, 2 or 3? nevermind, i remember. copella's daughter was in the third one, horrible. yeah, definately the godfather 2 with the young deniro was way better than the first.

    For the record, I significantly prefer The Godfather to the sequel.

    T2, Aliens and Empire are all no-brainers for better sequels in my book as well.

    I've got them at a dead heat actually. Would probably take Godfather 2 at gunpoint. But regardless of anyone's personal opinion, it's still a pretty successful sequel when both movies are in most movie critic's Top 10 of All Time.

    i thought Bourne Supremacy was better than Bourne Identity.
    Batman Begins was much better the original (and most certainly the other three)

    you can't just write all sequels off... it all depends on how they're done. seom should never have seen the light of day (the whole ten yards... seriously wtf???), others like godfathers and the two i mentioned were worthy of being made.

    i've always hated the argument that hollywood is so redundant - because everything is like that. the music industry, food industry, the internet, television... if you were to really break it down, whats the difference between applebee's, fridays, o'charleys, ruby tuesdays? not a whole lot. obviously specific menu items but they all shop at the same "wall kitsch decor" outlet store and offer essentially same types of food. its all redundant. just like films aren't exactly the same, different actors, scripts but its a similar premise or storyline...

    the only way that the redundant patterns impact you is if you keep deciding to frequent or attend the redundant films, restaurants, etc. There are some great unique restaurants out there, there are some fantastic new films being made, great music, great television... you just have to make the choice to find it.
    [/rant]

    anyway, two movies i just watched...

    This Film Is Not Yet Rated
    An entertaining and interesting documentary examining the MPAA and examining how and why films are rated the way they are (and more specifically, by who). They talk about violence being deemed more appropriate than sex, whether this group is a censorship organization, and the filmmaker hires a private detective to find out more about the studios controlling the MPAA and who the voting members are. Here is a trailer for the film and here is a clip that explains the each level of rating. A-

    A Face in the Crowd
    This 1957 film by Elia Kazan (who directed On the Waterfront, Streetcar Named Desire, etc.) was Andy Griffith's film debut, Walter Mathau is in it as well. Its a satire about fame, media manipulation and megalomania. Essentially this hillbilly 'Lonesome' Rhodes is discovered in prison by a radio reporter looking for colorful characters. Rhodes gains a populist appeal from his radio appearances and it propels him into national stardom with a television show. He eventually becomes a front for business and political interests using his seemingly subversive appeal to connect with the common audience. Here is a clip. A-

    TRANSFORMERS - if you watch the movie for what it is instead of what it should've been according to your beliefs...you'll like it.
    I'll discuss more about it in the Transformers thread

    Hooligan's - The Untold Story. Really an outstanding documentary by the BBC on English soccer fans during the last World Cup in Germany. Suffice to say a lot of World War II animosities still persist in Europe, or at least are brought to the surface when some fans mix their soccer passions with large quantities of brew. A fascinating up close look at crowd behavior even if you don't like the sport. The whole thing is available on Google video:

    Batman Begins wasn't a sequel; it was a reboot.

    I don't think that'll be a problem for me. I recently watched the animated movie and was mortified by what I saw (I started fast forwarding by the "Dare to be Stupid" bit.)

    As long as there are no song-and-dance numbers, I'll be happy.

    well re-makes, reboots, sequels are all part of the 'redundant' hollywood output... why'd they have to make another batman movie? wasn't the george clooney one bad enough? its all part of the whole argument of hollywood having run out of ideas, no?

    Ratatouille - A pretty funny movie with a good story. Pixar still does the best animation job by far. While enjoying the movie, I found myself also enjoying how well it looked on the screen. Theri eye for detail made the fun story that much better. I would recommend it for those with or without kids. It has enough to entertain all.
