Rarely does a sequel live up to the expectations set by their predecessor, so when a movie manage to actually exceed those expectationsβ€”πŸŽ―πŸ…πŸΎ. Add your nominations.

    22 Jump Street
    Static
    This list was basically an excuse for me to talk about how awesome this movie is. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are spectacular in 21 Jump Street but somehow have even better chemistry in 22. I love how the movie isn't afraid to make fun of itself and its sequel status; the meta moments are gold. The credit montage at the end with faux plots for future movies in the franchise is the icing on the cake (Seth Rogan's brief cameo is πŸ‘Œ).

    @shanaz took my go-to sequel so I'll put this one up. This sequel, like Aliens, was so good that people forget about the first one.
