Re: How do we avoid the third act curse?
Hmm, I actually really like the 3rd acts of both of those films. Now Spider-man 1 & 2 and X-Men 1 & 2 I had problems with in the final acts. Of course I thought none of those films were especially good to begin with. Adequate is about the best I'd give'em.
Most anticipated TV shows of Fall 2015: Jessica Jones Season 1, Agents of Shield Season 3, Flash Season 2, iZombie Season 2, Blind Spot Season 1, Arrow Season 4, Supergirl Season 1
