IYO. Me, I think TIH was weaker. . . but it was also partially made by another studio before being brought into Marvel Studios, IIRC.
Anyway, I'm sure Fox meddles just as much if not more. The difference is, Marvel's "meddling" is visible, because it has a clear *point*. When a Fox executive insists on something, it blends in with the general crappiness and isn't individually distinguishable.
