    "Empire" and "Bride of Frankenstien" are two sequels that are indeed better than the films that preceded them, but they are exceptional.  Most of the time sequels try to be "the same thing only  more of it" and fail to be as good as the original.

      Of one that fell flat.  Unless I misunderstood the comment.

      It's not a big deal since the diary is intended as a fun discussion, but as I read the comment, it highlighted Empire (aka Star Wars #2) as a sequel that fell flat.  Maybe MA meant the second trilogy, which certainly was a dud from beginning to end.

        Okay, I skimmed over the "Star Wars" reference.  Perhaps MA was referring to the Prequel Trilogy.
