I enjoyed the heck out of the first two movies so a great third movie will give me something I've never had before, 3 great movie experiences with a superhero franchise.

Batman
BB - 'meh' (for me)
TDK - brilliant
TDKR - good

Spider-Man
Spider-Man - 'meh'
SM2 - brilliant
SM3 - bitter disappointment

Hellboy
Hellboy - Excellent
Hellboy 2 - Excellent
Hellboy 3 - ??
The first wasn't anything special, i don't think it was near as good as the comic and they didn't capture its dark mood, was Hellboy even that clownish in the comic? I don't remember that. Hellboy II was good, but once again not near as good as Spider-Man 2 or The Dark Knight, Hellboy 3 probably won't happen, Unfortunatelly, since Guillermo del Toro jumps from a project to another.

I haven't read a single Hellboy comic so I am judging the movie on what was presented to me. Also I'm talking about consistency rather than brilliance. Hellboy 1 and 2 don't hit the heights of SM2/TDK but they also don't hit the depths of SM3 and I was never bored like I was with the 3rd act of Batman Begins.

I watched the movies before i ever read the comics, and my opinion maintains from then, found the film too corny and boring. After reading the comics i realised how much wasted potencial the first film had, the 2nd one was actually very good though, except when everybody retires BPRD, half of them weren't even at odds with the organizations or showed signs of wanting to quit.

To be fair, I haven't watched HB 1 or 2 in a while. I think I'll check them out this week to see how they hold up.

If it wasn't for that SM3 film this might have been a genuine close call, but it was just soooo bad. First two were awesome though and was so excited for the third one, but such a let down.

Both were quite original and different from the source material. Due to SM3 there is no competition. I'd take SM1, SM2 over TDKR though

. Just by virtue of SM3 being so bad I had to pick Nolan's tril. I can't with a right mind pick Raimi's trilogy.

I go with Raimi's Spidey even though it's the less popular choice.

This. If only SM3 was good, we'd have two trilogies awesome in their own distinct way.

To me TDKR is just as bad and laughable as SM3.

A ranking of the six movies:

1) Spider-Man 2 (excellent)
2) Spider-Man (very good)
3) Batman Begins (very good)
4) The Dark Knight (average)
5) Spider-Man 3 (weak)
6) The Dark Knight Rises (awful)

So, all in all it's Raimi's Spider-Man to me.

If I was going by the third movie, I'd have to go with Spider-Man. TDKR is an even bigger mess than S-M 3.

At first, I agreed with all the bad things that kept me from watching it...but I started coming on TV more and more and more and more...and I slowly started to warm up to it. Harry and Sandman and the dilemmas of Peter thinking about tying the know with MJ really make me love the movie. The venom parts I cringe at, I don't mind the other symbiote stuff.

With The Dark Knight Rises, I thought it was okay the first time and didn't mind watching it for a while. It was very intriguing and not off-putting like SM3 was the first time, but watching it a second time made me realize I was really disappointed by it.
Pretty much this. I get more sympathetic for SM3 the more I see it on TV or whatever. I've seen TDKR twice and went from polarized but feeling it was still good to hating its story but liking other things like the fight scenes, cinematography, etc. I'd rather be watching SM3, whereas I don't think I'll ever watch TDKR again. It feels less rewarding by the end and I think I've gotten all I can from it without hating it more with repeat viewings.

Despite some clutter, I just enjoy SM3 more. It feels more like the third installment to a series despite some flaws, and even though it's crammed I feel like there was more breathing room for Peter and MJ, Harry and Sandman (Venom though...). I couldn't get into Bruce's arc at all, because it was a constant revolving door where characters don't really sync up until the end, and by that point I didn't care. The movie is horribly paced and so quick to get off the ground it seems.

SM3 is tainted in large part by Venom's inclusion. There was a solid story there that had to be divided up with Brock's (minimal, pointless) involvement. For me, TDKR suffered from John Blake's equally as pointless, but ungodly overdone amount of screentime. It was Bruce's arc to finish and he gets shafted for (what I feel) was a constant butter-up for a total miss of a final shot. There's of course the Tate thing but oddly that didn't irritate me as much.

I feel this is an unfair poll because of course Batman will be highly respected here and Spider-Man 3 is still seen as being so bad the whole trilogy must suck as well. But I think 3's scorn is a bit unjustified, just like TDKR is too overglorified. They're both largely good films. There's awesome enough concepts in each to make them at least watchable. Seeing people compare SM3 to B&R though is just laughable.

Batman gets it, but not by much. For me, Spider-Man, Batman Begins and Dark Knight are all top tier, then Spider-Man 2, then Spider-Man 3 barely beats out Dark Knight Rises. I don't think either third film is great or awful. I honestly believe SM3 is underrated and TDKR is overrated, and they are actually both close to the middle of the road.

I will say this, both Spider-Man 3 and TDKR have one of the dumbest moments in CBM history. Spider-Man 3's is the butler telling Harry the truth about his father, and TDKR's is Blake knowing Bruce is Batman based off a look he saw on his face once years ago.

That's where it seems to me that bigger isn't always better. Sure you wanna end a series on a bang, but that opens the gates for some sloppy writing, random deus ex machina, etc. I think both collapse under the weight of the scope.
