    Re watching 28 Weeks Later, the 28 Days sequel. It's a sequel so there's always that loss of originality to deal with but it might just be a better film. It's really quite good.

    Really... I did not like it anywhere near as much as the first one.

    I actually watched part of 28 Days Later earlier today. Such a great movie.

    I loved the first one, but I really love the second one. Rare for me to love a sequel more than the original. Maybe Crank 2, Die Hard, Evil Dead 2, and the Road Warrior fall into that category.

    I envy you actually, some of these movies you've missed are just phenomenal.

    Never seen the 28 Days sequel but I agree with all of those. Do trilogies count? Because Empire Strikes Back.

    28 weeks later is great. I only wish a 28 months later was made but I don't think Danny Boyle will ever gives us fans one.

    Definitely.

    Also, The Two Towers was better than Fellowship of the Ring. The Godfather 2 was at least as good as the first one. Wouldn't say better, but it's on the same level, which is rare enough, so I put it in this category.

    THE DARK KNIGHT!

    Also Pacquiao Marquez 4 was arguably better/best in the series. :p

    You mean Mad Max 2. The original or the ludicrous version with dubbed American accents?

    Yes, if you like hammy over the top impersonations of Tom Waits.

    On my flight JFK>Bangkok via HK and back:

    Argo-I really liked
    Skyfall-Ok. Not one of the best Bond flicks but not bad.
    Killing Them Softly-Fell asleep on this one.
    The Words-I also liked this. But the entertainment system was cut off as we were landing with appr 20 min left!
    End of Watch-I watched this again. Like this flick...

    Gah, how did I forget that? Definitely better than the first.
