(I'm not sure I'm fully on board with Godfather II but I don't have a great argument against your stance.)

Kiss Me Deadly also goes with The Godfather (and M*A*S*H, while we're talking about it) on the list of Movies That Are So Much Better Than Their Source Material That You Can't Believe It.

 

(Interestingly, great as it is, Shoot the Piano Player doesn't. I'll bet Truffaut would have been the first to agree.)

Godfather II and Superman II are the best IMO. Honorable mention to Rocky II.

 

Better than Source Material - The Strange World of Henry Orient. And I know I'm going to get killed on this one, but while as great as the book was/is, IMO To Kill a Mockingbird with Gregory Peck was better.
