Movie series that got better after the first one

Alien

  • All of the Alien movies are worth watching, but the second one (Aliens, the one with the space marines) is one of the ultimate science fiction action movies.

Indiana Jones

  • Raiders of the Lost Ark is certainly great the first time you watch it, but the third one (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the one with Sean Connery as Indy’s father), is the best one overall.

James Bond

  • It’s been a long time since I’ve seen most of these movies but Skyfall is certainly one of the best if not the best.

Mission: Impossible

  • The first one is a great movie, but the third one (the one with Philip Seymour Hoffman as the bad guy) is even better.

Star Trek

  • Original Series: The first one isn’t as bad as some people think but the second one (The Wrath of Khan)┬áis definitely better. My favourite at the moment is The Undiscovered Country.
  • Next Generation: First Contact was definitely an improvement over Generations, but my favourite at the moment is Insurrection.

Star Wars

  • Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is the best one — more interesting things happen and the characters are more fleshed out.
