Watching X-Men 2: X-Men United and realizing it really was the best of the original trilogy. Best all around storyline, best use of key character powers and also pretty much action packed and good pace.
Is it just me, but does it seem like the 2nd movie in comic book film trilogies seem to always be the best? Even though the first movies are awesome, there is so much explaining having to be done so that audiences who are not familiar with the comic book lore can be introduced to the characters, that sometimes it loses a lil bit. The one film trilogy that IMHO seems to have started strong is Superman I, but all in all, I’d probably talke Superman II over I (“Kneel Before Zod”!).
So anyone agree? Was X2 better than X1 and X3? Was Superman I better than Superman II, and III/IV? Wasn’t Ironman 2 better than Ironman 1, 2, 3 (actually, I prerfer the original Ironman more than 2 or 3)? Was Spiderman 2 (Toby McGuire Mix) better than Spiderman 1?
