Pacific Rim: Uprising, though for the most part not as good as the first film, it stands firmly amongst the pack of worthwhile sequels like Ghostbusters 2, Fright Night part II, Gremlins 2, Jaws 2, Critters 2, Predator 2, Back to the Future part II, Temple of Doom, and Poltergeist II.

In some ways I prefer Uprising to the first in terms of the action. Del Toro's film was immersed in rainy nights making for at times murky visuals. Uprising has action scenes that are clear as day. Overall Uprising imo holds up well to Gullermo's film for sheer rock em sock em robot vs monster spectacle, visual fx, and cool factor.

Ahem, a general statement about sequels that aren't as good as their first. Not comparing directly to the film I'm talking about. Don't have an aneurysm.

I mean, I personally think that Gremlins 2 and Temple of Doom are actually better than the first films so...

It's just crazy to think of something like this being uttered in the same sentence as those.

I'm always thorough in my viewpoints. Wouldn't ya say that typically the consensus is that Temple is lesser than Raiders? That was my only reason for mentioning that film. Having said that to put your mind at ease...

Temple of Doom>>Pacific Rim>Uprising.

Con Air is leagues ahead of the rest of those.

Shawshank reminds me of The Giver, where the protagonist dies but somehow the story continues, I guess it's a dying hallucination or something.

I'd say that Temple of Doom was better than Raiders.

1) No Nazis
2) Less cartoonish ultraviolence
3) far less annoying "Indy Girl"
3a) Indy Girl has a character arc
3b) Indy doesn't simp for the Indy Girl

Minecarts > boulder run. Although Short Round kinda sucks, maybe kids liked him? But they didn't like Anakin so

Raiders is certainly more iconic though.

I watched both of the Gremlins movies for the first time this month, and I can confidently say that Gremlins 2 is leaps and bounds better than the original.

I really like Uprising and actually prefer it to the first movie. Fantastic action scenes.

I think Gremlins 2: The New Batch is the best sequel ever made.

Temple of Doom is bad movie and really is a chore to watch, unlike Crystal Skull. Which is easily enjoyed and is harmless fun.

In my defense, his back was to the camera.

Academics are okay, but their pitching staff on the baseball team couldn't hit the side of a covered bridge.

Am I the only one who don't really care for the FoX-Men films?

They haven't held up well over the years, they waste characters and plot lines left and right, barely show respect for the comic materials, kept pushing Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence to the point of ridiculousness, and yet people still treat it as a "venerable franchise"? GTFO.

Feige needs to take off his nostalgia goggles before they need to be surgically removed because they don't deserve a big fancy "proper' ending in Secret Wars like it's rumored. They deserve to just be left in the past and ignored to be honest, enough is enough.

Also, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is one of the most overrated comic book movie castings of all time. Anyone who thinks he's the definitive Logan deserves to get their opinion on comic adaptions ignored.

Scorsese's best films are not his gangster/crime films but his quieter films. The Aviator, Silence, Kundun, Age of Innocence and Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore are perfect films and deserve more praise and attention than something like The Departed or Wolf of Wall Street.

[Show spoiler]I do think everything he's made is damn near perfect though.

Lethal Weapon the song is better than Lethal Weapon the movie.
