Oh, I encourage atypical opinions. But as far as X-Men 3 goes, I can't really agree. I thought it was a huge waste of the buildup of the first 2 movies. It wasted characters (killing them off-hand), wasted the Phoenix story, and wasn't even long enough (it's like 30 minutes shorter than the other 2).
I quite liked the original, X2, First Class, and DOFP.
I did NOT like 3 or Origins. So when people started comparing Apocalypse to those, all plans of me seeing it went out the window. But now I'm seeing talk in favor of it enough to make it seem mixed instead of overtly negative.
I thought exactly the same thing, which is why I waited so long to go see it. But finally I just went "You know, I actually want to see this, so screw it, I'll give it a shot" - and my low expectations probably helped, but I was pleasantly surprised. If you liked First Class and DOFP, I think you'll like this one. And there's a pretty funny joke at the expense of X3.
