And "Aliens" is as good as "Alien" (although a very different film)

And "Empire Strikes Back" is a much more mature and interesting film  
than "Star Wars"

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" is better than the first two.

"The Subtle Knife" (Pullman) is as good as "The Golden Compass/Northern  
Lights" (although these were conceived as part 1 and 2 of a larger  
work, so I'm not sure "Knife" counts as a sequel)

The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable  
uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.
