I liked Indy 3, totally agree with Cop 3 being rancid. I can't honestly think of one really great #3 in any series be it a trilogy or more. Friday the 13th 3 was actually terrible relative to that series. Same with Nightmare.

I havn't seen the 3rd Batman yet but given what I read about it maybe it qualifies as great.

WAIT...Exorcist 3 was REALLY good. It was just slow as hell and dissapointed a lot of people who wanted a rehash of the 1st one.

I may be back if I can't sleep.

Hellraiser 3 sucked.
Star Trek 3 sucked, relative to #2.
T3 sucked.
Definitely Halloween III: Season of the Witch.

The franchise jumped from Michael Myers slasher-based horror to (quoting the IMDB capsule):

"A large Halloween mask-making company has plans to kill millions of American children with something sinister hidden in Halloween masks"

That's right - deadly pumpkin Halloween masks. WTF was an understatement.

nijuu: Aliens 3 was like WTF is this? :(
I've heard the director's cut is better. Apparently that movie had a very troubled production, with constant rewrites and producer involvement. I think David Fincher said it was the worst experience of his career.

Jorean: I haven't bothered to see it yet, but I hear Transformers 3 is pretty painful to watch.
You're sick, if you've seen more than just the first Transformers. The point where it becomes completely obvious that the director has no fucking idea what a Transformer is.

Well, Mr. Bay, I'll give you a hint it's not fucking Meagan Fox, either literally or metaphorically.

Jorean: I was going to mention Highlander 3 as well, then I remembered how horrible Highlander 2: The Quickening was. To this day I have to pretend that movie never existed because it is so... well there are no words. One of the worst movies ever made. It is up there with Zardox.

Wishbone: At least with Zardoz, you can laugh about how awful it is. With Highlander 2, you can only cry...

It's interesting that both movies feature Sean Connery though (and in that connection one should probably also mention Sword of the Valiant). For me, those movies illustrate what seems to me to be a major difference between British and American actors.

The British approach to acting appears to be something like: "I'm an actor. Acting is my job. If you have a part for me, I'll happily accept it, and will act it to the best of my ability, regardless of how big a picture it is."

The American approach seems more like "I'm a star, who happens to be an actor. If you have a part for me, I may take it, if I think it's high-profile enough to benefit my career, and if my agent thinks it's a good idea. Of course, my name will have to be written pretty large on the poster, and you'd better have a huge paycheck ready for me."

This is naturally a gross generalization, but I do feel that British actors are generally not nearly as picky about the parts they accept as American actors are.
There's probably 30 or 40 times as many American actors as British actors. And being a big actor in Britain is a much lesser deal. If you make it big in the US, you're probably going to be known worldwide within a couple years. Not to mention the fact that a start can bring in so much money that the studios have to kiss ass to keep them signed.

I think the psychologists were going to create a personality disorder for that, not sure if they ever formally decided to do so.

Thank God im not the only one to watch those films, but i still think third is worse than second, the second has that blonde that spends almost all her tim in the film naked.

I liked 2. It was small, claustraphobic, intimate, and it had better spelling than I ever will. :P

I own the delux 2 disc dvd of #1 AND I have read the book which is a trip because it was written with the exact OPPOSITE sentimate of the movie. Turns out Heinlein was a real imperialist wakko and believed it was the true duty of America to over take and destroy any country weaker than itself. WHAT AN ASSHOLE!

SIDE NOTE, if you get a chance check out the audio commentary on the DVD, N.P. Harris and Paul V. are hilarious and make sure to point out EVERY SINGLE flub in the movie.
