For me it's The Lord Of The Rings, all three movies are beautiful crafted with great acting,effects and most importantly a terrific score at the heart beat of each movie.

Honorable mentions to Star Wars, Back To The Future and the Jason Bourne movies.

Indiana Jones-ignore the 4th and the first 3 would be an honorable mention

Sergio Leone- Man with no name trilogy. Yes, it isn't the same character in all three. Yes, he is given a name in all three. But it is still damn good viewing.


Godfather I, II, and III have to be in there. The greatness of I and II make up for the flaws of III (Sofia Coppolla's acting, Robert Duvall not returning, etc).

Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darnkess-

Alien, Aliens, Alien 3- First 2 were outstanding.

I say Scream 2 was about as good as the 1st one. The 3rd one was pretty damning though.

Man With No Name (there were other films with the character, but not by Sergio Leone)

Original Star Wars (and not the shitty re-edited versions Lucas' insecure ass made)

Infernal Affairs (if you can look past the confusing/mediocre finale)

Indiana Jones (Kingdom of the Lame Ass Crystal Shit doesn't exist in my book)

Can't believe no one said The Matrix. Lord of the Rings is number 1 for sure though.

Yeah. The Matrix was the only good one. Everything else was just contrived shit that they pulled out of their ass for a buck.

You just know when they completed the first Matrix all that other shit was never even thought of.

Hunt for red october, patriot games, clear and present danger, were good. Not the level of the man with no name, but good.

Kiss the Girls, Along Came a Spider, and the next entry would be a good one

I like most of the ones mentioned, but I have to throw Leathel Weapon in. They could have stopped at 3, but even the fourth was decent. I can't think of any other trilogy's that aren't mentioned already.

I actually just finished watching the trilogy again today. All three movies are classics, even the first one by Doug Liman can hold it's own with the Greengrass ones.
