Writer's Block: Part deux - Wynne's Notes

Jul. 2nd, 2011 12:02 am Writer's Block: Part deux

Which movie sequel do you like better than the first, and why?
So the writers block question is what movie sequel do I like better than the first and why? Hands down I have to say BATMAN BEGINS and DARK KNIGHT are much better than the preceding Batman movies. One because they have a better story to tell, two because they are no where near as dark as the first one, third the Batman character is played but a better actor and fourth the supporting characters and villians are more 3D in their character portrayal. Yep, definitely Batman sequels.

As for other sequels, there are a few that I found more enjoyable to watch.....namely the last Twilight movie was MUCH better than the first one. The direction was better, the characters actually did some acting instead of just reading lines and Jacob, what can I say, LOL.

Just a list:
Madagascar 2 was better than the first one.
I'm still a die hard Star Wars: New Hope but the original 3 (in reality the sequels) were 10X better than The Phantom Menace.
Star Trek First Contact heads over heels better than Generations.
Star Trek The Movie (last one) 100% better than 8/10th's of the other Original cast movies. Exceptions might be Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation as the 3rd part of a series was better than its predecessors....and its funnier too!

I'm sure I could think of more if I just took the time. For the moment, this is the beginning of my list. Perhaps I'll add more to it as they come to me.

Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were not sequels to the previous Batman movies. They were a completely different line of Batman films.
