Favourite Fictional WWII Film Made After the War?
I am big into studying World War II, and I love watching movies based on its events. One thing I have noticed is that most WWII movies are basically biographical - it chronicles a real event, though it may have some historical inaccuracies for one reason or another. But I was thinking it would be interesting to compile a list where the mission(s) in the films are fake and the films are allegories, not biographical/documentary-esque.

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.

Most Unexpected Sequel
Sometimes the decisions of the production companies are odd. For example, why make a sequel to Highlander (1986) while the whole point of the original movie was "There can be only one"? Who had the idea to make a prequel to Cruel Intentions (1999) while it was a transposition from the 18th century to the 90s of Choderlos de Laclos's Dangerous Liaisons? Why make a sequel to Dumb and Dumber (1994) without Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and the Farrelly brothers? Anyway, from this list of unlikely sequels, which one is for you the most unexpected? Not the best or the worst, just the most... unexpected. Poll here! Discuss here!
