Your favorite film trilogy?

I suppose this has been done before, but what's your favorite film trilogy?

Mine in descending order:

Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy
Ray's Apu Trilogy
Star Wars (Episodes IV-VI)
Mad Max Trilogy
Romero's Living Dead Trilogy
Indiana Jones Trilogy
Wajda's War Trilogy
The Godfather Trilogy
Bergman's Faith Trilogy
Inagaki's Samurai Trilogy (really need to rewatch these)
The Terminator Trilogy
Leone's Dollars Trilogy
The Back to the Future Trilogy
The Jurassic Park Trilogy
The Evil Dead Trilogy
The Die Hard Trilogy
The Naked Gun Trilogy
The Rambo Trilogy

Of course, some of these may be rendered ineligible in the future due to possible fourth installments.

I'm not sure where I'd place the Matrix Trilogy as I have yet to see Matrix Revolutions; probably above the Back to the Future Trilogy based on the first two installments.

After I see ROTK, I'll probably place the LOTR Trilogy above the Jurassic Park Trilogy.

Please feel free to list any others that I may have missed - I know that Antonioni's L'Aventura, La Notte, and L'Eclisse are considered a trilogy, but I haven't seen the latter two yet.

Welcome. In the future use the search feature to try to find out if a thread has been done before.

Heh, forgot the Naked Gun Trilogy.

And there's also Fassbinders BDR Trilogy of which I've only seen The Marriage of Maria Braun. Time to unwrap that Criterion box set...

The last two movies did not happen!! Do you hear me, they never happened! As someone who loves the original three films that is the way I like to view it.

My other two favorites would be The man with no name and Indiana Jones.

Must be a little grating, then, when you see the headers "Episode 4", "Episode 5", and "Episode 6" if 1-3 never happened, eh?

I wish I could say The Godfather trilogy, but Part III didn't compare to Parts I and II (two of my favorite films of all time).

So as a set of three movies, I'll have to go with the Die Hard trilogy. All three of those action flicks are about equal in good quality, and none of them were disappointing.

I agree with ya metaridley... My first reaction was GODFATHER!! But then I went Hmm didn't really like the last one (will have to watch it again).

If I had to choose 1... Indiana Jones for pure popcorn fun!

Lord of the Rings, hands down (and I haven't even seen ROTK yet).

Also a huge fan of BTTF, Die Hard, and Indy.

Star Wars is overrated.

Three Colours Trilogy (Bleu, Blanc and Rouge)

IMO, nothing else comes close.

Anyone think the Karate Kid trilogy belongs in there (if Dubya can ignore SW Ep. 1-3, then I can ignore the fourth KK movie . . . even more legitimately too, I would say . . . )?

I want to say the Leone Dollars Trilogy, but I just have to go with the Star Wars Original Trilogy. It's called the "Holy Trilogy" for a reason.

Does anyone ever consider The Holy Grail, The Life Of Brian, and The Meaning Of Life to be some form of Monty Python trilogy? I guess technically it's not, but if you did think of it that way, I think it would rank up there with some of the greats.

Not really - but that does remind me of another...

Time Bandits, Brazil, and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen are considered a trilogy - and it should certainly rank up there with the best of them.

Kieslowski's Three Colors definitely my first choice. If you're after a second choice, then it would be LOTR.

Both of those are way in front of any other trilogy.

Would love to have seen Kieslowski's take on Heaven, Hell and Purgatory.
