List: Top 3 Movie Sequels

This week on Episode 259 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by Paddington 2, we discussed our favorite movie sequels. As obvious as this list seems, it took us 250+ episodes to realize that we had never tackled this subject before. We’ve talked about movies that didn’t need sequels, and movies that deserved sequels despite having none, but somehow we missed this one. And as you’ll hear in our discussion, there are many great sequels that cinema has offered over the years – including some of the best films of all-time. On that note, what sequels would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
