I was in a ska band in college. I was the frontman and played trumpet. It was awesome.

[QUOTE="DarkZero"]
so i've noticed that with 3-child families, the middle child is often the most overlooked. yet with game/movie trilogies, it's usually either the 1st (mega man, nolan batman) or 3rd (back to the future, dkc) entries that nobody cares about.[/QUOTE]


Took me a while to think of one.

I think Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is mostly overlooked. People love either 1 or Snake Eater. It's not exactly a trilogy though but you still did mentioned Mega Man so. . hrm.

I haven't noticed this trend until you mentioned it. Nobody cares about Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

I think it has something to do with how trilogies are formed. I did notice a while ago that trilogies form this way: the first is always self-contained and the second always leads into the third, typically with a main character getting lost or imprisoned or falling from grace (Han Solo in carbonite, Jack Sparrow in Davey Jones's locker, Neo in limbo, Doc stuck in the Old West, Batman becomes a wanted criminal, etc). The first is usually self-contained because you don't know exactly if the series or trilogy will do well, so it can stand on its own.

OH. Temple of Doom. Although lately I've seen many friends revisit Temple of Doom and loving it more. I always loved Temple of Doom though.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is, I think, the perfect B-movie. It's the epitome of cheesy, enjoyable adventure and exploitation.

i can appreciate that. i think people tend to undervalue movies that are just simple and fun.

They really need to make more practical, enjoyable swashbuckling movies again.

Out of the trilogy, Iron Man 2 is the most overlooked Iron Man movie.

oh man, WoT 365 will be a once in a lifetime experience

Also imagine WoT 666. That's really far ahead. Maybe we'll be dead by then or something idk.

We could introduce a baby character. That would get ratings.

Nah, a dog character will do way more than a kid.
