I saw the second and third movies in the theater (the first one didn't hit my radar, but I was 11 when it came out) - and I absolutely love them. To the point where, when this one came out, my parents wanted to go with me.
I do kind of hope that they come out with another one at some point - but only if the main three are in them. It's so rare that a Franchise can keep THREE main cast members. I don't even care that there is no realistic expectation of their deaths, in fact I like it.
