Default Re: How do we avoid the third act curse?

Part of the problem is that everyone involved with this type of film thinks in trilogies...

They realize that their story wont wrap up by the end of part 3, so they force the story into unnatural places and cram as many characters in as possible. Everyone has this "how do we top our previous success" mentality, so everything is tried all at once, when all the audience wanted was a natural continuation of the story.
