Writer's Block: Part deux

Which movie sequel do you like better than the first, and why?

Although I'm a big fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey, I like 2010 better.   As much as I enjoy it, Stanley Kubrick's direction in the first movie was too slow, methodical and clearly geared toward the pot-influenced hippie culture at the time (1968).  The sequel (in '84) was fast-paced and explained a lot of questions left over from the first movie.  I like how Roy Scheider made an edgier character out of Heywood Floyd.  And Helen Mirren as the Russian spaceship captain -- very nice touch!
