This 5 Fandom Friday prompt is Favorite Sequels. Seems like a cool prompt, for my purposes I think I will group some of the sequels together, instead of taking up the whole list with Harry Potter films.
1.) The Harry Potter sequels. They really only get better with age. The actors get better the stories get more interesting and complicated. Harry Potter is probably my favorite fandom so this was definitely making it onto the list.
2.) Avengers: Age of Ultron. I think the ensemble movies are the best of the series, and I thought Ultron was just as good as good as the first Avengers. Arguable Captain America: Civil War can be included as apart of the Avengers ensemble films because it was basically Avengers light. Side note I am pumped for the Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.
3.) The Shrek sequels. I genuinely enjoyed all of the Shrek movies (not including the spinoffs or straight to DVD movies). The core lineup was good, and continued to be funny and introduce new and interesting characters. I really enjoy interesting takes on fairy tales, so I’m always a bit of a sucker for those movies.
4.) Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This is probably my favorite film in the original franchise, followed by the Force Awakens, A New Hope, and the Empire Strikes back. I do not care for episodes 1-3. But I thought Return of the Jedi is just a fantastic film, Luke kind of stops being a whiny baby and actually does some really cool stuff and watching Princess Leia strangle Jabba is one of my favorite scenes ever.
5.) Mad Max: Fury Road. Easily in my top 5 movies of all time. I thought this movie was an awesome new advancement in the Mad Max universe. Fantastic story and action scenes. Plus you know there are some great tips for when the inevitable water wars come to America. I love a movie that is both entertaining and informative.
Let me know what your favorite sequels are in the comments!
