Sequels to old movies that you actually like?

So if you had to pick a movie that is a sequel to an old movie, so not something that came out like right after. Don't say things like The Dark Night or Spider Man Two or whatever. It's got to be at least like a decade, if not longer. I think, like, 20 years is probably a good benchmark for this. So interested. And what you all pick?

Coming 2 America hits Prime Video this week, so let’s reflect on our favorite direct sequels that actually don’t suck!

And that's the only one I can really think of that came out 31 plus years. Well, more than 30 actually way after the original. But I can think of many third installments that came out 30 years after, like Bill and Ted's Face The Music or The Lost Boys, two sequels to that franchise, which were God awful, but that is more common. I can't really think of direct just one sequels that you guys are asking here. So I guess Dr. Sleep is my pick

Return to Oz

My pick is a little weird, and I'm not sure if anybody who listens to this will have seen it before, but My Pick is Returned to Oz, which was made in 1985, even though wizard of Oz was made in nine. So that's a pretty big gap. Some people might even argue that it's not a sequel. But considering it follows the same storyline, I would consider it a sequel. Return to Oz is definitely eerier, creepier, and slightly darker than wizard of Oz

2 Favorite sequels off the top of my head.

Okay, I've got two for you. Blade Runner 2049. I thought it was an excellent sequel. And barring the fact that you need to know what happened to Blade Runner, probably actually a better film. And I on top of that train spotting two. Train spotting two was brilliant. It was probably not as good as Trainspotting, but it did everything it needed to do. Take all the boxes. And those would be my two that come right off the top of my my head
