Good, but not on the original's level:

-The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
-Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
-Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
-Terminator 2: Judgment Day
-Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
-The Bourne Supremacy
-Sanjuro

Sequels that are about as good the original:

-The Godfather: Part II
-The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
-Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
-Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
-Kill Bill: Vol. 2

Sequels better than the original:

-Aliens
-Jackass: Number Two
-Christmas Vacation
-Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
-X2

I disagree on just a few of those. Two Towers was better than FOTR, but Return of the King was just amazing. Of the Star War prequels, only Episode III was clearly the best and is worthy to be even mentioned in the same sentence as the original trilogy. And Kill Bill? Yeah, Vol. 1 was way better as far as action, Vol. 2 is a better movie overall because you didn't need to see Vol. 1 to get the story or to feel The Bride's pain. That's no crack on Vol. 1 though, it was hot. I agree Bourne Identity was better than Supremacy, Supremacy only worked because his girlfriend was shot.

Finally, I can't believe you left Rocky 2-4 out of your "Good, but not on the original's level" list. of course Rocky 5 was a bust, so it doesn't really get the good label.
