    national treasure 2

    not to imply that the first one was bad but in this one he kidnaps the president with zero ramifications

    what a delightful movie series

    Empire is the easy answer here. The Dark Knight is a close second.

    Lots of good suggestions in here

    lack of Trolls 2 from the 90s leaves me a bit concerned but it’s still early

    There aren't many. Sequels are a plague on Hollywood engineered by risk-adverse execs desperate to sell tickets; marketed to people who prefer to watch mediocre films with characters they know rather than take a chance on something novel or risky that they might not like. The Cheesecake Factory of movies. Even worse now that everything is a "property" and being turned into a franchise. Sorry if this offends.

    Wait a minute. Are you suggesting that Dawn is better than the original Planet of the Apes or just the new trilogy? Because it was never clear to me if the new trilogy was a true "reboot" or just new sequels.

    Bad Boys For Life is the best in the series.

    Most Bond movies are better than Dr. No.

    Back to the Future II sucks

    +1 for the Winter Soldier, but I'm one of the few that thought the first one was kinda boring minus Peggy of course.

    I might be in the minority and I enjoyed the first one but Karate Kid II was my favorite.

    The one that comes to mind immediately for me is The Dark Knight.

    The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is the best of the Dollars Trilogy imo, not sure if that counts though because technically it's not a sequel.
