Aliens is NOT better than Alien.

Actually, they're different movies. The first was a sci-fi/horror movie. The second was an action movie. They each succeed on different levels.

Me, I prefer the first. Much more atmospheric and scary. But regardless, in no way do I believe Aliens is a superior movie, in any way, shape or form.

Technically yes.

Michael Mann's Manhunter (Red Dragon) came out in 1986. Which is brilliant but was a flop.

In 2002 they remade Manhunter into Red Dragon with Ed Norton which sucked.

I'm with you. Ridley Scott created a great horror/sci-fi crossover.

James Cameron took the concept and made a somewhat clever but formulaic action flick. As usual.

Alien also had a superior cast and a superior script, IMO.

This may be sacrilege to some. As brilliant as 2001 was, I'm inclined to think 2010 was a better film.

I know I'm in the minority but I also think Brian Cox was light years better than Hopkins as Hannibal Lecktor.

Cox was subtle, understated and terrifying. Hopkins was over the top and rather absurd, IMO.

P.S. Terminator 2 doesn't measure up to the original.

It was funny how they tried to pass off Hopkins as Lecter again in Red Dragon. That film is set before Silence of the Lambs so the character is obviously younger. Yet Hopkins was 12 years older and about 30 pounds heavier than in Silence. ROFL.

And while I appreciate the whole ground-breaking special effects thing, I think 2001 is an incoherent, overrated pile of shit (although I did like the book, which was not incoherent). 2010 was a much better movie.

Godfather II was as good as Godfather. Not better.

Aliens was not as good as Alien. That's BS.

Live and Let Die was Roger Moore's FIRST Bond movie. Someone didn't do their homework.

Silence of the Lambs was NOT a sequel. It was the same story as Manhunter. Actually since they made a pre-quel to LOTL later, it could be argued that it was a sequel that was filmed earlier.

You are correct about Live and Let Die, I should've caught that. You are incorrect, however, about Silence of the Lambs. It was the second book, as well as the second movie. Manhunter, as said earlier in this thread was the first movie. It was based on the book Red Dragon.

Yep..your right about Live and Let Die. That was my mistake.

Im not sure if Silence was intended as a true sequel or not because at the time NOBODY remembered Manhunter since it was a forgotten flop. Its since been rediscovered.

But Manhunter was not the same story as Silence. Manhunter was based on the book Red Dragon, but they changed the name for the movie.

You sure you aren't thinking of the Red Dragon movie that came out after Silence? In Manhunter the killer was the Tooth Fairy, in Silence it was Buffalo Bill. Now Manhunter and Red Dragon are virtually identical as they are based off of the same book. There are four books in the series: Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Hannibal Rising.

How diametrically different you and I are in movie taste!! the first "Rocky" would have been an American classic along the lines on "On the Waterfront" if Stallone hadn't soiled it with Rockies 2 through 6(?). "Temple of Doom" was a cartoonish disgrace. Would you like to buy my brand new copy out of my Indy DVD box set?

Yeah, but Return of the King was the third in a series and it's on the list.

I thought Return of the King was the weakest of the three, by the way. I liked it but Frodo is so morose and weak during the movie it gets kind of tiresome.

This is kinda hard to say, but I think I liked The Matrix Reloaded better then the first one.

That list can not be complete without Backdoor Babes II - Re-entry.

Speed 2 was a lot better than one. Not that, that means much.

I really like 28 weeks later, I liked how it followed up with the aftermath and what they were doing. Not better than the 1st, but really good. Those are probably the best zombie movie's I've seen because it has a sense of realism.

Does The Good the Bad and the Ugly count as a sequel to a Fistfull of Dollars and a Few Dollars more? It's never really said that he's actually the same character from movie to movie and I don't think there's recurring characters. In fact, I think some actors play one role in one film and another in a later one, but the three films are usually packaged as "The Man With No Name Trilogy".

The Road Warrior

or as it's know down under Mad Max 2I was stunned that this wasn't on the list. Mad Max was a B movie at best.

I have always assumed it was the same character.
