Thinking about it the way Keith proposed:

First in series: I give it to Spidey
Second in series: I give it to Spidey
Third in series: I give it to Star Wars (Adam says it's a 5 star movie ;))

Overall winner: Spidey
There's no deceit in the cauliflower.

¡Keith!

Bourne trilogy.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

See, Spider-Man 2 is my least favorite of the nine at issue here. It was laughably bad in my mind. I don't even begin to see why it has gotten all the praise it has.

I don't see how people can not love SM2, it's classic comic book storytelling at its finest.

They might not like 'classic' comic book storytelling. They might like the character but are in search for something different.

What if I don't like the character or the storytelling? Maybe that's why I like S3 the best, we get a non-whiny Peter Parker.

Hence why it's the least of the three films, Parker is a whiner, always has been and if he's not whining then something is wrong with the character.

Personally I don't want to know people who don't like classic comic book storytelling.  :P Seriously though, I understand that people don't like the film, but that doesn't mean I can grasp my head around their reasons.  :-\

'Classic' is in the eyes of the beholder. That's essentially what my argument boils down to.

Spidey, although the others are probably more consistent in quality.

X-Men 1 and 2 are strong but X3 is pretty mediocre. Spider-Man 1 and 2 are good, but 3 is awful. Star Wars...I really only think I can bring myself to rewatch Ep3 at this point.

So for now I'll go with X-Men. Its weakest link (X3) is the strongest of the three week links in all three of these chains (Ep1, Spider-Man 3).
