Audiences understand the appeal of a trilogy, but often times when you get to the last movie it's a letdown. Take, for example, X-Men: The Last Stand and Spider-Man 3, which both were disappointments in the eyes of fans. With Spider-Man 3, the filmmakers tried to cram way too many villains into what became a complicated plot, and it got to the point where members of the cast and crew were ready to call it a franchise and move on. With the X-Men, Bryan Singer did wonders with the first two films in the series, but when he jumped from the Marvel realm to the DC one to reboot Superman, the third film suffered. Director Brett Ratner came in to take over the project and the result was a mess. It was an ambitious idea that was poorly executed, and audiences were quick to share their displeasure. Like The Godfather: Part III, it's best to just forget these two exist when compared to the originals.
