I called this when I read that post earlier, but I chose not to say anything. Just because.

You know me oh too well!  ;D

It's a unique ability called "I'm covering up the fact that I haven't seen Terminator yet by being really nice."

You do really need to watch The Terminator and Terminator 2. Same tier as Alien, Aliens and Predator.

The Kurgan

True dat.

But stop after Terminator 2. After T2 there are only variant degrees of disappointment.

Is there any franchise where the third+ entry actually is better than the first two? There has to be some kind of exception somewhere.

Just thinking off the cuff here, and opinions will vary... and these don't all match my opinions...

LOTR Return of the King
Star Trek IV The Voyage Home
Mad Max Fury Road
Toy Story 3
Avengers Infinity War
Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors
Die Hard with a Vengeance
Captain America: Civil War

You mean DHWaV is better than DH2, right? Because that's a given.

Yep, Predator & Alien for sure. That's why it sounds familiar :P

I've heard people prefer 3 over 2 and even over the original, yes. But for me... It's Die Hard at #1... and yes, Die Hard 2: Die Harder is my #2 favorite. I admit that with no shame. ;D


Hudson

Die Hard 2 is pretty boring. What I remember from WaV is the "I HATE N*****S" sign, and then some really dated effects when they're driving those dump trucks away from a giant surge of water.

I thought we were doing third films only?
If not I'd have added a lot more.
