I didn't watch III until last a couple days ago ($10 at BBY this week), and I think it's a near-fact that it wasn't as good as II was. It was even more dissapointing to hear Goyer mention that he originally thought to set the movie in the future. Why the heck didn't he?? At least it would have been different from the current movies. I also think adding humor was a mistake - there's no need to try to reach a whole new audience in the third installment of a series. The third movie should appeal mostly to people who loved the first two.
