Writer's Block: Part deux

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

2010: The Year We Make Contact.
Let's face it, 2001: A Space Odyssey was terrible.  It was incredibly slow and made no sense - though the music was superb.  However, what really did it in was the horrid 20-minute ending montage... thing.  That movie felt like it was meant to be watched while on acid, and since I don't do acid, I didn't really appeal to me.
But 2010 is a completely different story.  It has plot, and interesting characters, and tension between said characters, and everything!  It even has a sad, tormented supercomputer.  I love 2010 and gladly recommend it to people, but I immediately warn them not to bother with 2001.
