    Let's face it, we all agree, the third movie in a comic movie series always disappoints, which ruins the trilogy (Superman 3, Batman Forever, Blade Trinity etc.) Plus, there are only 3 movie trilogies that have been really good in hollywood (LOTR, Back to the future, and the Godfather) After the amazing traliers, tv spots, and movie pics, everything seems to look good. But there are still fears and speculations!!! But do you think X3 can break the curse?:confused:

    **** you, Star Was

    yes i do think x3 can break the curse, if anything i think the first xmen movie will be the one considered the heel of this trilogy

    as for your other trilogies

    Superman 3 wasn't "that" bad, it certianly didn't ruin the anthology for anyone

    Batman Forever- all those movies suck anyways, none of them come close to Begins

    Blade Trinity-no Blade sequals should have been made in the first place Blade one is so so good, and there will never be a better villan then Deacon Frost, he is one of the best villans in movie history

    Die Hard (2 was the worst, and that was still pretty cool)

    Star Wars (you have to be ****ting out of your nose to think otherwise)

    Terminator (3 indeed is the worst but the first two rock, and as far as action flicks go 3 isn't that bad, and kind of cool)

    do you honestly think spiderman 3, and the rumored back to back shoots of Sin City, and Pirates of the carribean are worried about a curse? then nether should the xmen franchise

    I'm confident X3 will be the best out of the three.

    Me too, especially after how much I've grown to loathe the first two.

    Deacon Frost sucked, not unlike the film itself. He was a generic as all hell, "oh, look how evil I am, I'm going to take over the world and you can't stop me!" bad-ass wannabe that couldn't find for himself and needed a blood god to compete. Blade himself was an unlikeable prick, the effects are horrid by the standards of badly constructed video game graphics, they didn't care how stupid they made the vampires look (and man did they ever) so long as it made Blade look cool (which they couldn't do anyway)...

    Blade 2 has a much more likeable hero, a vastly more effective villain that can actually fight on his own and is very sympathetic, far better effects and more well crafted action...

    Even as flawed as Trinity is, it's still better than the first piece of overrated ****. Atleast Blade himself was used properly in it.

    whoa whoa buddy, check your blade disscussion at the xmen thread door my friend

    Deacon Frost is everything a vampire should be, Pyscho, Dangerous, and cold blooded smooth pimp in the process, regardless cause its evident im not going to convince you, so i am not going to waist precious seconds when we obviously see completley different on this issue...Blade 1 was about as good as it gets, and outside of Ron Peralman does not need any sequals

    i think x2 is "ok" i dislike x1 about as much as anyone, but i think x2 made huge strides from the original (especially in the action department) that i think it will continue to build on, and make x3 better

    NO. But I do believe Spider-Man 3 will.

    Star Wars 3 and Harry Potter 3 were successful too.

    Mavel comics have already proven wrong that a sequel is always a bad idea. X-3 will show that for the first time 3 IS BETTER than 2 and 2 BETTER than 1.
    Never has anyone done that before unless you do a James Bond and do 21 films. Siderman 3 will do the same because Mavel has a back log of good comics to inspire to.

    well not only that but the screenwriters, directors, and producers have a big part in whether the sequels or movies will be hot or flop.

    here is the thing with comic book movies, which makes franchising and sequals and trilogies, and quadrilogies etc. etc. a good idea..

    there are so many stories, and so many characters that, the first movie is going to start kind of slow and not get into the story/action right away.

    this proves the fact that the first movie will be less interesting then there sequals, and hence forth...

    this is why i think the hulk needs another movie, hellboy, punisher, fantastic four

    its why i think spiderman 2 was at least just as good if not better then 1, and why i am really anticipating 3

    its why x2 is hands down better then x1

    there is so much back story, and story to tell because of the position the writers/producers/directors put this franchise in, it literally took 2 movies to hash out wolverine, and rogue, and professor x, and magneto, that now..we know everyones stance and now, we can just fight, and die, and have this epic movie

    Exactly, you have a back log of hundreds of pages in comic books to choose from to make comic book movies ritch in context. Yes directors and artists do a good job but in Marvel's case I think still having Stan Lee around is like having George Lucas for a comic book industry. Not sure if DC or the rest can say the same. But like any other movie we can always be introduced and have no sequal. X-men just has so many cool characters it will always be ritch same with Spiderman.

    No no no. You got it all wrong. Just because theres 3 movies in a series doesn't mean its a trilogy.

    Trilogys are included;

    Star Wars Old 4-6.
    Star Wars New 1-3.
    The Matrix
    The Godfather
    LOTR
    Blade
    Terminator.

    Examples of non-trilogies you listed.

    Lethal Weapon
    Superman
    Batman

    Those arn't trilogies. They have a number three in them, sure; but that doesn't make them trilogies.

    if you go off of that list of official trilogies there are 2 subpar ones, each of the two had at least one kick ass movie in (matrix and star wars 1-3, the matrix 1, and episode 3 being the highlights)

    one average trilogy Blade

    one above average trilogy, by which i mean 2 good movies and one average movie (Terminator)

    and 3 really really good trilogies (Star Wars, Godfather, and LOTR)

    i think still think it is highly likely this movie is the best of the three and will beat the trilogy curse, again i think it will be tough to be a worse xmen movie then x1

    I thought they were both pretty weak, 2 was better, but that's not saying much. Now that Singer is out of the way, I have faith in X3.

    I think a big reason for this "curse" is that the filmmakers just don't have a good enough idea for a third movie, but make it anyway. X3 obviously doesn't have that problem.
