We here at Rays Index are big fans of the folks over at Deadspin.com. As part of a baseball preview, they have a regular post called “Four Tiny Tidbits On:”. They love our D-Rays so, much they have actually have run two posts, “Four Tiny Tidbits On: The Devil Rays” and “Four More Tiny Tidbits On: The Devil Rays“. Most sequels never live up to the hype nor the substance of the original. Usually the budget is better, so the explosions are bigger and the special effects are more spectacular, but the story is lacking (ie. Mission Impossible 2). In fact, only three sequels have won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Can You name them? (answer at the end of this post) Well, in this case the sequel has outdone the original. Maybe it is just too easy to find funny tidbits about the Devil Ray players and organization. At least the Rays aren’t as boring as the Twins, who only garnered “Three Tiny Tidbits On: The Twins“.

Answer: The Godfather 2 (1974), Silence of the Lambs (1991), Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003).
