Considering those films consistently make a great deal more than most(including the masterpieces that make up this franchise). I'd have to wonder what's they are doing right.
It couldn't possibly be the strong plot's or characters. ILM does 3 movies a year and they don't all make TF money, 80's properties aren't really a sure thing...

Perhaps it's the impossible to make out "action" and impossible to "enjoy" direction. Who knows. I always find it grating when people bash TF for the one thing it's made all it's success on.

Anyways, I'm not sold on IM3 just yet. Seems like yet another Robot army movie with yet another semi self aware villain out to get Stark for his success. Only post Whedon, everything at marvel looks exciting again.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
