What, no razzies for:
Highlander 2 - The Quickening
The Howling 2 (or Your Sister Is A Werewolf)

At least as coherent, vs. unintentionally funny, sequels go...

Worst: The Scorch Trials

I liked The Scorch Trials, even though I didn't think it was as good as Maze Runner. Decent though.

The Dark Knight sequels were great. Watched all three movies over 3 nights a few weeks ago. There's a 4K UHD re - buy I'd jump at. Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight is off the charts nuts !

The Empire Strikes Back, Godfather II, The Dark Knight, and The Exorcist III (really was a sequel to the first movie as the second movie was a disaster).  I think some of the Marvel titles are good such as: Avengers II, Captain America -The Winter Soldier, and X-Men 2.  Hellboy II was good, as well.

Re: Anchorman II, I thought it was pretty funny.

The worst sequels?  Too many to list as most are quite bad.
