Trilogies with 1 great movie
Watching a review of Logan got me thinking about trilogies that had 1 great movie, but the remaining were either "alright" or just plain terrible.

For example, as great as The Dark Knight is, Batman Begins is still a good movie. It doesn't quite fit into this.

Star Wars obviously doesn't, though some could argue if they feel that Revenge of the Sith is a great movie, that the prequels fit this. Even if you limit Aliens to the first three movies, Alien is still a really good movie as is Aliens.

I'd submit:
Thor: Ragnarok as a great movie, with Thor being "okay" and Dark World being plain bad.
Logan as a great movie, with Origins: Wolverine being bad and The Wolverine being "okay"
X2 being a great movie, with X3 being bad and X-Men being "okay"

The Matrix Trilogy is the obvious choice.

Probably because I was watching Logan I was only thinking of superhero movies, but you are absolutely correct.

I like each of the BTTF movies, but let’s face it. There’s only 1 great movie.

...and that’s Part II.

Do you consider the third one "Meh"? Just curious, I thought it was enjoyable (though honestly not sure if I consider it "good" or not)

How is that possible? They only made the one movie in 1999.

OG Iron Man is the only of the 3 of Tony's movies that isn't almost entirely unwatchable. IM3 is worlds better than 2, however.

The sequels are watchable, but get worse as go.
