    2. Blade 3 doesn’t even deserve what little blue it got. Ditto for Spiderman 3. Both series had such good movies for the first two and such suck-ass movies for the third one.

    5. Spiderman needs more white, all of them. But Alien 3 was awesome, one of the best endings…

    6. Ah, but many of these became tetralogies and ushered in a whole new level of “Why God, WHY?” Batman & Robin, anyone?

    7. X-Men 3 was way better than X-Mens 1 & 2. Bryan Singer has to add all that “we’re a family” bullshit to every superhero film he makes, it seems—he’s cut off both Wolverine’s and Superman’s balls. X3 was superior in action, plot and the fact that I didn’t have to put up with that whiny bitch Cyclops.

    8. alien 3 was good. so was terminator 3… ridiculous, but good. also, everyone knows that rocky II is better than rocky.

    9. Wait
      There’s like 4 Indies, 5 Planet of the Apes movies (not remakes), 4 Superman movies (With Reeve) and 11 Star Trek movies (7 with original cast).
      You need to rate Star Trek 7. I for one thought Shatner was pure sexy in his girdle.
      Worst, movie, evar

    11. @rattybad: While I’m not entirely happy about some of Singer’s versions of the X-Men or his casting choices, X-Men and X2 remain very good movies if one disregards liberties taken with the source material, and they’re both superior to Ratner’s disastrous foray.

      Oh, and FYI… the X-Men ARE a family in all but blood (and in some cases, several are connected by blood). The ties that bind them and the sense of brotherhood (no pun intended) is part of why I love Xavier’s merry band of mutants.

      @ picture:

      I disagree on the account of Jurassic Park 3. I felt all three were good movies, though the first two were more solid than the third.

    13. Rocky and Rambo – all of them were equally awful.
      Star Wars – the prequels? Meh, no slivers of blue.

    15. Can’t help but notice that LOTR got good ratings across the board.

      How in the world did that happen.

      Reply

    16. @Silverwolf: Allow me to rebutt—you don’t convince Wolverine that he’s “family” after only a few days at the X-Mansion. And the first two were cheesy plots with almost no action and few interesting characters (Jean Grey–her power is to stand there concentrating real hard; compare that to the terrific effects of the 3rd flick when they finally busted out some cool characters). I don’t read comics to hear about what a tight-knit group they are, and the relationships between the X-Men in the film came down to pointless adult bickerings, all smothered with cheesy kid-friendly dialogue. I mean, really—a Senator who turns into liquid? A stopover at Iceman’s parents’ house? X3 got into the mutant threat big-time, and showed actual repercussions. Save the family shit for X-Babies.

    17. @LukeV1-5: because they are all awesome?

      anyways, I agree with the list for the most part, except for Die Hard. Die Hard 3 is at least on a par with the first one, and certainly better than the second one.

    18. @dhg4983: How do I have adjective?

      @Annarchy: You’ve obviously never seen the first Rocky or Rambo. Didn’t Stallone win an Academy Award for writing the first Rocky, or was he just nominated?

      Reply

    19. I disagree with Alien, Mad Max, Batman and Indiana Jones.

      Alien 3 was a character piece and most people couldn’t comprehend that.

      Mad Max was almost even across the board, but Thunderdome was actually the low point of the three (awesome as it was).

      Temple of Doom wasn’t quite on par with Last Crusade.

      I’ve only seen two Batman movies. I don’t know why the yet-to-be-made third is marked so low. I keed, I keed – but Forever was actually more true to Batman then the bile Burton spewed out.

    20. @TunaFish: Wrong. The story on which they are based is froth. It’s a bad story. It’s been hyped, and it’s chock full of epic special effects and breathtaking scenery, but the actual story, the premise of the film, is bad.

      I still can’t figure out how it got to be so popular.

    21. @rattybad:

      how many two word phrases can I come up with to prove the fail in X3?

      1) Jugger. Naut.
      2)Angel’s plotline
      3)Wasted Sentinels
      4)Cyclops Beshitted
      5) I’m Bored.

    22. @LukeV1-5: You surely have repressed memories of 3 and are just thinking 4 is 3. It was like a bad episode of Law and Order with an effects budget.

    23. Oops, that was sposed to be @Tuna, obviously.

    24. Indiana Jones 2 sucked horribly, how is it rated above The Last Crusade which was far superior in every way?
      Also, Spider-man 1 should be higher, it was a much better movie than the first X-men.
      Plus, Blade 2 wasn’t that good…always found Blade 1 to be better and Blade 3 only slightly worse.

    25. WAIT!
      Blade II has more blue Star Trek II?
      This chart us broken.

    26. @Gary Scenario: Alien 3 had an opening date before it even had a script. Then the original director bailed, and the date stayed the same. It wasn’t a “character piece,” it was a low budget crap film.

      I even watched the Director’s Commentary one of the times I was trying to convince myself it was good. They apologized during the whole thing. There’s also a 30 minute “making of” on there that’s one big apology.

      The last time Fox set an opening date before they had a script, and changed directors at the last minute?

    27. @Gary Scenario: Forever was more true to the 60’s cartoon, which is based on the 70 year old comic.

    28. Godfather 3 isn’t that bad and there is no way Blade 2 is better than Blade 1.

      Also LOTR should be all full bars or at least ROTK.

    30. Matrix 3 was way better than Matrix 2…. blech

      Reply

    31. @rattybad: I’m assuming you ignored my comment about my dislike for some of Singer’s characterization, which partly agrees with your points. The rushed development of bonds in the movie took place over decades in the comics. Rogue took a shot for Wolverine before he began to trust in the comics, and his relationship with Jean also developed over a long period. Logan spent years ruffling his teammates feathers. On the other hand, the third movie made a great mess of characters that only a fan of the comics can fathom. If you don’t read the comics, chances are you’ll like the Last Stand.

    32. I liked all the matrix’s VERY much. But number 2 and 3 were awesome because of the ghosts and the huge mechanised gun bots that humans in zion operated.

      Reply

    33. @rattybad: Anyone who liked X-Men 3 is retarded. The movie was terrible, the script was awful, and the acting was crap. If you seriously liked x-3, then I seriously have a video of me taking a dump which you’ll probably love.

      @Putridity: The ‘huge mechanised gun bots’ were one of the worst parts of The Matrix 2 & 3. “Oh, I know, lets build these really awesome exo-skeletons for fighting the machines, but we’ll build them so they off exactly _zero_ protection to the human operating them.”

      While they were at it, they should have research a suit to protect them from 3-inch bees, and worked on bullet proofing their legs.

    34. @zaffudo: Impracticality does not diffuse concentrated awesomeness.
      When you can design a mechanised suit cooler than that one and yet still have it be an obvious tribute to the one in Aliens, then I will listen to you when it comes to futuristic war machinery. I agree they needed more armour, but they still rock my socks off. I want seven of them.

    35. How is Batman a trilogy? They’ve yet to make more than two movies in continuity with each other.

    36. Jaws 2 was way better than 3.

    37. @kurrgo: The Keaton/Kilmer/Clooney movies were all one continuity, held together with stuff like Pat Hingle’s Commissioner Gordon, Michael Gough’s Alfred, and to a lesser extent, Chris O’Donnel’s Robin.

    38. Ok, am I missing something, or are some of those movies quadrilogies and pentologies whose extra parts have been conveniently ignored for the purposes of this comparison? That’s just bad science yo…

      Reply

    39. Jurassic Park 3 was MUCH better than 2. Superman 3 wasn’t as good as the first two, but not as bad as the graph seems to imply. All three Rocky movies should only have a sliver of blue. Batman 3 wasn’t nearly that bad… you’re probably thinking of the fourth movie (the one with Clooney). Finally, Alien 3 was a VERY good movie. Whoever made the graph really has poor taste, and was very harsh of third movies for no apparent reason.

      Look, buddy, I’ve lived in Europe many times in my life, I’m moving back to Switzerland for 2010, and am no flag waving patriot, but what the fuck? If you have a problem with America, then create a picture/thread or find people to actually discuss your opinions with rather than just desperately trying to tie movie opinions to national ideals.

      Seriously, you look petty and stupid.

      Also, both Alien and Aliens are great movies, however I can only quote one of them, no matter how many times I’ve seen both.
      “Game over, man. Game over!”
      “…they mostly come out at night. Mostly.”

      Hmmm… you know, I’ve actually visited the H.R. Giger museum in Gruyère. I should probably post the pic of the bar.

      I have no clue whether he won or not. The Oscars are a great indicator of movies I will not enjoy. Yeah, I’ve seen all the Rambo and Rocky movies (thanks, Dad!), and I despise all of them. Stallone is awful.
      I demand to know why Highlander is not on this list!
