The Show-Me State Movies
The Show-Me State is the official nickname of Missouri. There are several stories concerning the origin of the "Show-Me" slogan. The most widely known story gives credit to Missouri's U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver for coining the phrase in 1899. During a speech in Philadelphia, he said: "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me." The phrase is now used to describe the character of Missourians; not gullible, conservative, and unwilling to believe without adequate evidence (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Missouri became the 24th state of the United States of America in 1821. These movies have a connection with Missouri. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story.

Which is the best series comprising only 2 films?
Often times when a film gets a sequel it becomes a full blown franchise. (Often at least a trilogy) But here is the sets of films where they (at least for now) have only gotten one further installment for one reason or another. So this is just to see which duo of films is considered the best. Remember, these are all films that are supposed to bet set in the same continuity. Some of them for instance are being considered to be rebooted and the like. And also remember that you're supposed to take into account your feelings for both films in each set, whether you like one of the films or not. As this is a test of the films' accumulative strength against the other films duos.
