Original Film vs. Its Sequels – Which Was Better?

Sometimes, on a rare occasion, a movie’s sequel will stand out as better than the original film. These days we also tend to see sequels outperforming their predecessors at the box office, too. (Who goes to see the sequel without first having seen the original movie? Hopefully they at least streamed the original first.)

Claiming the sequel is better than the original can be quite an unpopular opinion – except when it’s not.

So, we want to know – what do you think about these movies and their sequels? Which was better – the first film or the follow-up?

From Home Alone to Jumanji, now is your chance to weigh in on the debate.
