Sequels that you enjoyed more than the original

What are some sequels that you enjoyed even more than the original film? Not necessarily to be considered better, but just one that you enjoy watching now more than you do the original.

Some for me:

Aliens
The Empire Strikes Back
Terminator 2
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

Probably for me, the only ones are X2 and Star Trek II: Wrath of Kahn. Im one of the few who likes Ep.4, The First Godfather, Spiderman, Toy Story, and Terminator movies a little more. Not that I dont love the sequels (with the excpetion of SMII), I guess I just have a slight preference for the originals.

lord of the rings is one story. the fact that the story is so long that it needs three movies, does not make the second and third movies sequels. they are continuations.

i will wage this war until everyone realizes i am right. or until i get bored. whichever happens first.
