True, Spider-Man 3 tried to cram too much in, and rushed the story with a lot of lazy storytelling (mostly people doing things for no good reason).

The most disappointing thing about X-Men 3 was that they had Juggernaut (played by Vinnie Jones no less), and completely wasted him as an ordinary mutant henchman. He had one really good scene in the whole movie. They get points for the "Juggernaut b***h" reference, but otherwise, the character had too much unused potential.

Right, and remember, Juggernaut isn't even a real mutant, in the comics and cartoons.

Plus, they have (bad) singing and (awful) dancing.  And Venom is in it for like 10 minutes...They should have stuck with just Sandman and maybe somebody else (Rhino, Lizard).  Hell, they could have Doc Ock come back like in the comics.  That's what they haven't done in comic book movies...Except for Dr. Doom but I'm boycotting the FF movies.

Out of the film series listed, I like LOTR...

X-men 3...Lots of action no substance.  Lots of characters doing things solely because it's in the script.  I'd like to see an X-men 4 that would tie up things but that may or may not happen.  X-men 3 suffers from Spider-man 3 disease.

I'm guessing when you do more than 2 comic book/superhero flicks, they start to take a tumble.

X3
Spider Man 3
Batman Forever (I liked it)/Batman and Robin
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 (I liked it but, well, the first was the best, and part 2 was, funny at least.)

I guess they feel the need to just add a whole bunch and throw crap at the wall to see what sticks.

Don't believe 'em HappyGilmore...

I personally thought X-Men 3 was the best of them all.
Maybe it's because that other than "The Usual Suspects", I don't like any film Bryan Singer has directed.

They're just too damn serious!

X-men 3 worked for me because it wasn't so "serious" like the first two films were.
The third installment really felt more like the comic book to me and that's why I liked it.
Some comics, like Spiderman, can be translated to the big screen in a serious manner.
Others, like the X-Men, are pure fantasy and the "serious" treatment doesn't really work all of the time.
It didn't for me in the first two movies.
I rather enjoyed the approach and vision Brett Ratner took when directing X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

----------------------------------------------------

As for the Spiderman films...
The first one was OK.  Other than the sometimes cheesy CGI, I thought it was fairly decent.
It is what it is...

As for part two, after repeat viewings I have to say that I really don't care for it.
Sam Raimi's directing style for me is hit or miss.
Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't.

The camera shots in Spiderman 2 drive me up the wall every time I see it.
I remember watching it on TBS one evening and thinking, "This movie kinda sucks.  Why is that?"
It's because of Raimi's directing style.

I like Maguire as Parker/Spiderman but didn't care for Alfred Molina as Doc Ock.
It's weird...I've liked Molina in some of his other films but thought he was totally miscast as the villain here.

Even worse is Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane.
She simply doesn't fit right.
Especially in Spiderman 2 where she looks stoned out of her mind in almost every scene she's in.
If you have the DVD, pop it in and tell me her heavy lidded eyes don't make her look like she's baked out of her skull.   TeddyR
She looks drugged out the entire movie.

See this pic of the smiley face from Dazed & Confused?

That's how Dunst/Mary Jane looks throughout Spiderman 2.

I haven't seen Spiderman 3 yet so I can't comment on that one.

----------------------------------------------------

The Lord of the Rings films are just OK in my opinion.
I suppose if I had grown up reading the stories, the films would've had a bigger impact on me.
But I didn't...and the films didn't.

---------------------------------------------------

I've only seen the first two Pirates of the Carribean films and I didn't care for any of them.
A good pirate movie should suck you in to its world but none of them have managed to do that to me so far.
They feel too "Hollywood" to me.

---------------------------------------------------

I voted for the Harry Potter films.
Haven't seen the 5th one yet but I've seen all the rest and have read all of the books.
Not one of them has disappointed me yet.
