    Yes, as in it's not seen as an embarrassment as so many are....even though I still see it as the lesser of the three films.

    Although I always liked Back To The Future 3 better than 2, and even Matrix 3 better than 2.

    While I think this trilogy curse only really applies to the comic-book genre (there are plenty of great 3rd installments of other franchises), I'm gonna say yeah, this broke it.

    While I think TDKR may be the weakest of the three (I'll see it again tomorrow and watch it more prepared and see how it holds up), it still a very good movie.

    This is not a SM3, or worse an X3 or POTC3. It's not even a Godfather III ("It was....okay."). But reversely, it also isn't Return of the King.

    Honestly, I feel if it can be compared to any trilogy it's the original Star Wars trilogy. The first one really surprised people (though obviously BB did not have the cultural or industrial significance of SW) and the second one blew it away with its depth, scope and overwhelming darkness. The third wrapped things up in a satisfying way, but did not live up to the expectations of the previous film.

    Broken, dead and buried.

    Nolan delivered an amazing conclusion. The perfect conclusion, imo.

    I think it was broken.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Spider-Man 3, but the quality of the film was a definite downgrade from the previous 2 Spidey movies. The Nolan Batman movies, however, have definite consistency in their quality.

    I don't buy into the notion of a "trilogy curse" (I don't share the typical fanboy views that Spiderman 3 or X-Men 3 were bad), but Batman was a consistent trilogy. But then again, I think Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are grossly over rated, and nowhere near the "perfect" trilogy. But it's a good one. Maybe my 2nd favorite superhero series.

    I feel it is as well, but not by much, and as we said before, it's not an embarrassing drop off like so many others that 'fit the curse'.

    I wouldn't say that the trilogy "curse" is broken, 'cause anyone could go and mess up their third movie at any time. Nolan's Batman is "free" from the curse, so to speak. There definitely is a consistency amongst the three.
