John Carpenter's brilliantly crafted Halloween launched the slasher-film craze in 1978. A sequel was inevitable, but by the time Halloween II arrived in theaters in 1981, a slew of Halloween rip-offs had made green by increasing the red stuff. Although Halloween showed little blood, Halloween II director Rick Rosenthal filmed Michael Myers' hospital rampage in gory detail—from a nurse getting scalded to death in a hot tub to Michael getting his eyes shot out.
The human centipede? Really? Anything could be better than that crap, except a sequel on the same crap. Get a life.
Couple of comments and observations. First - to sonicking ... the only thing I can think of as to why ESB isn't on this list is that it doesn't really "step it up." While the story is better - the level of the action isn't really "stepped up".
Next - while most people would agree that Godfather II is superior to the original, its NOT the only film on this list that is. I don't think anyone would argue that Wrath of Kahn was better than Star Trek TMP.
I would also argue that TRON Legacy is superior to TRON. For the life of me I can't imagine why Legacy didn't even get NOMINATED for ANY Academy Awards (visual effects, sound, special effects, art design, etc)???!!!
I think that the Empire Strikes back needs to be on this list; not only did it feature more sci-fi action, creatures & locations than Star Wars: A New Hope, but also a deeper and richer story than the first film, including waht was one of the most shocking & unexpected (at that time) plot twists ever (hint: Darth Vader DIDN't kill Luke's fater.)
How different are these major characters in David O. Russell's new film from ones the actors have played before? Let us...
