As much as I love the Lord of the Rings, this probably should've won the Best Picture Oscar over Return of the King, but I'm guessing the Academy felt like they owed Peter Jackson for making him lose to Chicago and Beautiful Mind the two years before (both mistakes in my opinion).
Nothing could live up to the original, but this is still a worthy sequel. Plenty of good plot twists. There's not much of a reason to watch Psycho III, and there's NO reason to watch part 4, but I definitely recommend this if you liked the first one.
