Summer of Thirds

The current top 3 movies at the box office are all third installments in incredibly popular movie franchises:

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
2. Shrek the Third
3. Spider-Man 3

And, hold on to your socks. June 8th will mark the wide release of yet another third, Ocean's Thirteen. And, all of this is happening in the year of the 30th anniversary of the ultimate trilogy's debut movie, Star Wars. OK, even I don't really see a connection there. Sorry.

But, regarding these thirds, are any of these damn things any good? I'm still stewing over how much worse Godfather III was than its two predecessors.

If you enjoyed the 1st 2 Spiderman movies, you will enjoy the 3rd. If you didn't, don't bother. Several people I know saw Pirates, and said it was the best of the series, even though it was damn near 3 hours long. No info on Shrek.

You should have asked: Are the thirds turds?

I liked "Ocean's 11" a good deal. I saw "Ocean's 12" and found it mildly entertaining, but quickly realized there was no need for a sequel. I don't plan to see "Ocean's 13."

..."Weekend at Bernie's?" If we are to have a summer of tired and uninspired third installments, why not the original "beat a dead horse?", gangster.

I'm interested in Spidey the 3rd but that's about it.
