I wasn't a big fan of Xmen and X2 at first viewing, I have since grown to really enjoy Xmen. I think X3 was a jumbled mess compared to what Singer did with the franchise. Sure there was some cool sequences and it was a fun movie, but X3 had horrendous dialogue and a huge plothole that is ridiculous.
Superman Returns missed alot of opportunities in the editing room and also in subsequent script rewrites the main focus of their idea was watered down. Was it a horrible film, no, but it could have been better. Just like X3 could have been better.
