Other than the title there is nothing wrong with "Live Free Or Die Hard."
And "Scream 4" is pretty fucking good.
And let's not forget "Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire."
Other than that, yeah, any movie with "4" in the title is unlikely to be good. Some can be fun in a kitch way ("Jason Lives" and "Saw IV" come to mind, but not as fucking good as Die Hard 4, the fourth Scream film and the fourth Harry Potter film.)
Really? Consensus among my circle of friends has always been that Harry Potter 4 is the worst movie in the franchise by a long shot.
Bunch of us watched the first 7 before going to the cinema for the final one.
Good Lord the first two are _awful_. Four isn't perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than the Columbus duo.
I haven't rewatched Goblet since I was in theaters, so while at the moment I must simply agree to disagree, maybe I'll go back and check. Depends if Netflix instant watch can oblige me.
I've heard a few people say this but I don't understand it at all. The first two (especially #2) were pretty awful. Goblet of Fire was my second favorite movie of the series.
Admittedly, it's hard for me to justify because I only saw Goblet of Fire once, in theaters -- I hated it enough I never saw it again. Maybe it's time for me to go back and re-evaluate.
For me, though, Chamber of Secrets is mostly bad because the book it's based on is bad, not because it's a bad adaptation. But obviously everyone's mileage varies.
Similarly, I only saw CoS once. And it is the weakest book in the series. But I also thought the acting and the pacing were pretty bad. Part of the acting issue was that the main characters were still young kids, but I also thought Harris was mediocre as Dumbledore. When you have a bunch of things going wrong like that, I assume most of the blame belongs to the director (see also: the Star Wars prequels, where multiple good actors gave the most wooden performances of their lives)

I know what you mean, but I'm still thinking snarky things about a pair of films based on a Marvel Comics property.
I'm glad you beat me to it, but Live Free or Die Hard was exactly where I was going with this too! I think it's actually my favorite or tied with #3
