Best sequels and re-makes

I loathe re-makes and sequels in general but occasionally the odd film DOES get made just as good or sometimes better through a sequel or a re-make

Ok lets start with a classic -

The Wizard Of Oz..the famous one is not the original as it was done years before that

Cube Zero - ignoring Cube 2 this film goes back to the basics of Cube

Empire Strikes Back - nuff said

Funny Games - having the same director just re-shoot the original film almost identically but have English language and US actors does help a LOT

Star Trek 2 The Wrath Of Khan - at least the film was entertaining and they controversially killed off Spock

anyone else think of any?

I really don't see how that "Funny Games" remake was anything but pointless. I mean, that's kind of what they made subtitles for

Well Funny Games I have seen the US remake and the point was to bring it to a wider audience - a LOT of people simply will not watch films with subtitles, dubbing is normally VERY hard to pull off well

it will be starnge to watch the original version as that will seem like a re-make to me
