Ask Lifelounge - volume fourteen

Ask Lifelounge - volume fourteen

Color of Money
Empire Strikes Back
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Mad Max 2
Terminator II
Terminator II
The Dark Knight
The Godfather: Part II
This week we answer the question: How many sequels are better than or at least as good as the original?

Hey Anonymous, we're not sure of an exact number. Let's be honest, it's subjective. (Some people legitimately think Grease II was better than Grease – mostly because of that 'Reproduction' tune.) So instead, we've decided to throw down ten that we reckon are better than the original. Some of them are probably really predictable, but you know, cope.

The Godfather: Part II
Everybody agrees on this one, right? Set in Italy in the '20s and the USA in the '50s, it's a double whammy. The first time you saw this, when the credits rolled, you were like "WHOA, SON."

Terminator II: Judgment Day
This is the second most predictable choice. Terminator II was fucking epic: Linda Hamilton beating the shit out of asylum workers, the T-1000 that could liquify and stabs the lady through the ear, Eddie Furlong being every pre-teen girl's wet dream, and The Terminator's thumbs up at the end? So much yes.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
Five words, dudes: "No, I am your father."

The Dark Knight
Heath Ledger was incredible. And (let's be real) Maggie Gyllenhaal is so much more appealing than Katie Holmes. Now, if we can just get Christian Bale to whoa back on the gravel voice, just a touch.

Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix
It's just the best one, you guys! (But let's not talk about when Bellatrix murders Sirius, OK?)

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
Hey Mel, miss you from when you weren't a racist and raging lunatic.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

You know a movie's fucking incredible when a scene from your childhood still haunts you. "Kali ma! Kali ma!" and the guy's heart is ripped out and it's still beating? WHAT IS THAT I DON'T EVEN...

We should be able to go into proper detail about why this is better than Alien. There are a few reasons, one of them being this:

The Color of Money
Has there ever been a man smoother and/or cooler then Paul Newman? Hot dayum.
