In order to get this live, you need to limit this to only 35 options. ;)

So what I've done is I've condensed it to sequels from the 1980s- then this will be followed by 1990s and 2000s.

Good, it is better that way ;)

Of your options, I've only seen Rocky III, but I think it deserves the rating it has.

I've gone by the rule that a movie must have less than a 7.5. So with Rocky III for instance, even though most people don't argue it's terrible, it's still not held in as high regard as Rocky 1 or even Rocky 2.

For me it's a perfect 7, not bad for me it was fun, but the first one is just great.

Usually the first ones are always too good, which causes a lot of expectation around the sequels.
Only few sequels had performed well

That's true, hence why some may consider them underrated. There are those sequels that many consider to surpass the original e.g. The Empire Strikes Back, Aliens, Terminator 2 and The Dark Knight. However, they are rare to come by.

Terminator 2 and The Dark Knight they are just amazing.

And there are movies that I think maintained the same quality as the first like The Godfather, The Before Trilogy...

The film that most disappointed me in the sequel was "Back to the Future II", I really liked the first one but the second, although most people liked it, I did not have the same opinion, maybe I need to watch again.

In the new 007, I did not like Quantum of Solace, I was extremely excited because the Casino Royale was very good, but the second was a bad

The Godfather Part II is another great sequel- so is the Back to the Future Trilogy (I like all three). I haven't seen Quantum of Solace in a while but I remember not being impressed- Skyfall though was fantastic.

Is it Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2? If so I'll add it to the list. I haven't seen 2 actually but I love the first.

Yeah sorry I sent the comment before I saw your comment that it was Texas Chainsaw Massacre- it's been added. Also another one I just thought of is Psycho II and III.

Thanks but the link still doesn't seem to work. Also I've changed the poll so it's sequels from the 1980s not in general.
