Windows 7: Help: Sort Order

Help: Sort Order

Hello all, I have a folder of movies, each with their proper titles. However, instead of having sequels listed after the first movies in their series, the first movie will be placed after the other movies. For example, I have X-Men 2, X-Men 3, X-Men Origins - Wolverine, then X-Men. Or The Hangover 2, The Hangover. Why is this happening, since it is in no way logical, and is there a way to correct the issue?

Thank you for your assistance.
