So is it better to squander enormous potential or succeed at lower expectations? I used to prefer The Last Stand, but I've found myself leaning more towards Wolverine in the last couple years.
Choosing between X3 and XMO:W is like waging global thermonuclear war... the only winning move is not to play.

Taken strictly on their own terms, I think X3's almost inarguably the better film, if only for the presence of Stewart and McKellan, but it's such a mess of squandered opportunity I really have no desire to ever watch it again. Nor do I XMO:W, but at least there, the first half is hilariously bad and the second half kinda stumbles its way to a moving conclusion. What can I say, I'm a sucker for the "avenging fallen angel frees the enslaved children" beat.

So, if Rose Bryne were to demand I join her in a hot tub and watch one of those two entries only, I'd pick XMO:W.
