10 Sequels That Are Better Than the Original

In honor of the release of Harold and Kumar Escape Guantanamo Bay, a sequel that may only be marginally superior to the first one in concept and laughs (and some critics are already divided on that point) what the heck, I bring you a sampling of follow-up films that very clearly improved on the originals. In some cases, the originals have plenty of merit on their own, but for various reasons their makers felt all the more inspired for the subsequent go-round. I should also add the caveat here that for the purposes of this list, and some simplicity, I did not consider longer running series such as James Bond (the second and third films of which could be argued to be superior to the first -- and any that followed!) But feel free to post your own suggestions here in the comments below.
