Exclamation The eternal question: Are sequels better ?

Okay, this poll is about movie's.

Q: Are sequels better then the original movie ?

Yes, no or neutral ?

Well, i think most sequels are less then the original one, but of course you have godfather and such, and that is total 'verso'...

My vote: ~~No~~~

Usually Sequels are better. But a lot of times they can't compare with the first. (example: The Matrix)

Back in the 90s I would have said that all the best ideas were wasted on the originals, leaving nothing for the sequel. Nowdays however, it seems to be the other way round, with some of the great ideas being saved for the 2nd and sometimes 3rd films. Think of fims like The Mummy Returns and Men in Black 2. Two modern examples of how the originals were great, but the sequels were better!

I truly don't think so. And I'm with Kenshin on his Shrek 2 thing.

Cool Re: The eternal question: Are sequels better ?

Normally no, but in some cases yes.
Blade II and Starwars ep 2 are better then the first ones.

Um, depends. For some movies, they get better, whereas, some gets worse. I'm voting Yes, since I enjoyed most of the shows' sequel.

Oh yeah, btw, Kenshin, I watched TheHauntedMansion the other month, and I saw a little advertisement about The Shrek 2. It looks AWESOME :o It was really funny for an advertisement. I'm gonna watch it when it comes out, because my exams would be over by then ^^

Yes, but as said already, there are some bad sequels out there.
But meh, I don't want to be negative ^^.

X-men 2 was good
MIBII was good
Scary Movie 2 was good

But Matrix part 2 was really bad...

This is hard to vote on becuase, as people are saying, soem sequals are good, while others are bad. I'll vote they usually aren't, but their are times when sequals are equal to, or better than, the origional.

They tend to lose originality and run out of ideas. Sometimes they are OK, but rarely are they better. I vote no.
