Best Picture 2

Casablanca is regarded as one of the best movies of all time. It's a fantastic movie and I highly recommend it, but I can't help feeling that some of its enduring quality is because it wasn't made in the Era of Sequels*. Think about it: would you still consider it as great if they had released Casablanca 2: Sam Plays It Again**? What about Sophie's Other Choice: Eeny, Meeny, Miney & Mo***? Citizen Kane: Rosebud's Revenge****? Tree of Life 2: The Branchening*****?
