ITT: Sequels that were better than the original
No shot, OP.
2's pretty weak all in all. 1 is iconic.
Also Godfather 2, which we'll see soon, is inaccurate.
Everything about Ghostbusters 2 was better than the original. All the original had going for it was the banter between the three main characters. GB2 had that awesome courtroom scene, the statue of liberty walking down the street, a superior soundtrack, dat Ecto 2, etc.
The original felt like an overly-long sketch, whereas this one felt like a genuine movie.
Hmm. Well, I disagree and haven't really seen this opinion before but i'm glad you have it desu, good to see some variety and appreciation. I do like the courtroom scene. A number of good bits, just doesnt feel as cohesive or vital.
