The Best Movie Sequels

List Criteria: Only second / 2 / Part II movies in series

What are the best movie sequels ever made? This list includes several of the greatest movies of all time, and they all have one thing in common: They were film number two in a series. Which sequel do you believe deserves the top spot? Vote for your favorites, vote down any sequels you didn't like and feel free to add any films that might be missing - though remember, this is a list of second films, so no "Part III's" please. You can also re-rank this movie list in any order you choose.

It's really, really hard to argue that 'The Godfather Part II' shouldn't be at the top, or at the very least, near the top of this list. It's one of only a handful of sequels to receive an Academy Award Best Picture nomination (it win, in 1974, by the way). 'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' also received a Best Picture nomination, though it did not win (the third installment in the series, did). This is proof that just because a film is a sequel, it can also be among the very best Oscar-winning movies.

Need more proof? 'The Silence of the Lambs, technically the sequel to 'Manhunter,' won the so-called "big five" at the Academy Awards: Best Picture, Actor (Anthony Hopkins), Director (Jonathan Demme), Actress (Jodie Foster) and Best Writing/Adapted Screenplay (Ted Tally).

Some of the best movie sequels, not surprisingly, are also among the best superhero movies ever made. Among them: 'The Dark Knight,' 'Spider-Man 2' and 'X2.' Other notable movies worth a mention (and a spot on this list) include 'Superman II,' 'Iron Man 2' and 'Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.' Disagree? Vote them down. To each, his (or her) own!
