What is the greatest film trilogy of all time?

  1. I’m a bigger Star Wars fan than LOTR but the LOTR films are much better. I rewatch Star Wars films every Christmas time and the LOTR trilogy every summer.

  2. My favorite thing about Hitchikers Guide is that it’s been a book, radio play, tv show, movie, video game, and in every instance Douglas Adams’ changed the story a little bit, so there isn’t any “canon”.

  3. I like how the fact that it's only ever been a book trilogy, not a film trilogy, means the inaccuracy continues to increase.

  4. still would’ve loved if the my continued the movies man i actually adored that movie. i liked the old tv show and the books as well but i love sam rockwell, mos def, jim hensens creature shop, alan rickman, warwick davis, martin freeman, zoey deschanel, stephen fry, thomas lennon, john malkovich yeah fuck all those naysayers that shit was good

  5. The Good Son straight fucked me up. I was probably a little too young when I saw it, but it’s a movie I can clearly recall years later. Macaulay Culkin acted the hell out of that movie.

  6. It's so weird how BTTF doesn't often come to mind in the "trilogy" conversation. I think it's because the concept of a trilogy always seems to conjure visions of grandiose and epic films, whereas BTTF is more of a lighthearted action comedy. In all honesty though, the consistent quality of all 3 movies is above and beyond what almost all other film series achieve. Plus it all ties together so well, especially 1 and 2.

  7. I once watched all three of them in a day. It was so confusing! Some scenes get done two or three times per movie... There's some scenes that appear 9 times total.

  8. RaqueI, so many go to bed hungry in this nation. Yet, cat food's full of tuna. I can't help thinking each time I go to the zoo and see those porpoises crammed into tiny tanks, what a waste that is.

  9. Well, when I see five weirdos dressed in togas, stabbing a man in the middle of the park in front of a full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards, that's my policy.

  10. The baseball stadium scene where multiple baseballs are thrown into the air made my sides hurt from laughter.

  11. Solid answer that I did not expect. Always was a huge fan of all three movies and didn't feel like there was much of a dropoff between the movies. The history of comedy film sequels is really not great, especially for iconic films like the Naked Gun, so it really is a great accomplishment to be able to keep it going strong for three movies.

  12. Frank driving in the first movie makes me laugh to tears every time. Crashing into random shit. The airbag starts driving the car and Frank immediately starts shooting at it. Then the car takes a right turn on its own while using the blinker.

  13. Had to scroll waaay too far for this. It's also a trilogy that completely changed it's tone and every movie is just a blast.

  14. Everyone proceeds to quote 'Army of Darkness'. I think we know which movie was the best of the 3.

  15. The remake is also probably the best horror remake ever not named The Ring. Tv show is probably the weakest entry in the series, but it's still great if you like Army of Darkness.

  16. Was about to mention this! Love this trilogy so much - went to see Before Sunrise at the cinema on a first date with a girl I met in 95. We've been together ever since, married for 21 years.

  17. This is my answer as well and one of the big reasons is how each movie is singular and beautiful but also how it flows and relates to our own lives and experiences. The more you live different kind of relationship you have to each one. I can never pick a favorite because they all are so personal but emote a different feeling

  18. About 10 years ago I heard about Blade Runner being a great movie so I downloaded it. Turns out I downloaded Sling Blade instead. Not what I was expecting at all but I kept watching to see how things would change into this high pace action packed dystopian future. It obviously didn't and continued with Billy Bob going "mhmmmm" a bunch. Not a bad movie but I always laugh at that mix up.

  19. "You never had a rope around your neck. Well, I'm going to tell you something. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your ass."

  20. This trilogy doesn't get enough love. Once upon a time in Mexico is a lot better than what many give it credit for. Come on, where else can you get a line like "Are you a Mexi-can or a Mexi-Can't?"

  21. Cinematography in Blue is like best of all time imo. Just the opening scene with the street lights on the windshield or the pool scenes have stuck in my mind for a long time

  22. Not a best ever contender, but not to be denied as great. I was shocked how good the second was retaining the same basic dynamic. Third was… pretty good.

  23. Honestly here's my hot take, didn't like temple of doom. Felt like they took the suave intelligent and badass archeologist from the first one and just tried to turn him into one of the other meat head action stars of the 80s and 90s.

  24. I rewatched them all somewhat recently and they hold up. Goldmember is way better than I remembered.

  25. There are two things I can't tolerate, people who don't the the Austin Powers movies were a good trilogy, and the Dutch!

  26. Wow I feel dumb. I love Oldboy, but I didn't even realize it was part of a trilogy. I gotta watch the other two now.

  27. Finally, I found my people. I love these movies. My favorite movie music moment of all time might just be the minute or so after (spoiler) Hiccup loses his cheat sheet.

  28. I had never seen the first one and took my (at the time) GF’s way younger brother to the second one in theaters while the rest of the fam was doing “lady stuff”. I was 25 and he was 10, and I 100% cried more than he did. Then I watched the first at home alone and took myself on a long lunch break to see a matinee of the third when it came out, also alone. I was totally expecting to get a weird look or remark from the ticket salesperson, but dude straight up just said “yo this shit is gonna pull some heartstrings bro” and recommended I grab some napkins from the concession stand. Those movies are brilliant.

  29. This was way too far down the list. Die hard 1-3 are still some of the best action movies ever made.

  30. The best answer here. It’s had the best back-to-back villains and Im always wishing I was a panda after watching them.

  31. The remake of Planet of The Apes. Dawn of The Planet of The Apes is by far the best of three films - also I think they're one of the best remakes I've seen so far!

  32. Hell yes came here looking for these. Just rewatched them a month or two ago and they hold up so well. The second in particular is really like nothing else when it comes to big budget filmmaking. Andy Serkis deserved an oscar nomination at least. The great underrated sci fi trilogy of our time.

  33. These movies are better than they had any right to be. When I went to see Rise, I was doubting my decision, thinking it was probably gonna be some dumb action movie about monkeys fighting people and winning because the people act stupid and can't aim. What I got was so much better. Then, when I went to see Dawn, I thought that it would fail to live up to the first, and would be the dumb action movie I had expected, but it was even better than the first one.

  34. Many popular sci-fi go the Post-Apocalyptic route, showing us a not-too-distant future where society, as we know it, has collapsed leaving us to piece together what happened from intriguing tidbits of information. Often, that story of the downfall of humanity sounds more interesting than the movie I'm watching. I find myself saying, "Wait, tell me more about The Mushroom Wars? Wait... Humans were enslaved by giraffes? HOW?"

  35. YEEEEEEESSSSS!!!! You're the only person who commented this! Many people know Matt Reeves for the Batman, but imo, this was the best trilogy in the 2010s

  36. Went to see the first one in the cinema and when the ape speaks the audience gasped. I'll need to watch that again as I've not watched it since.

  37. At last the correct answer. Truly one of the most perfect trilogies of all time, and some of the best movies imo

  38. As a fan of the big trilogies (Star Wars, LOTR, Friday), I feel that Back to the future is so god damn simple. Not a whole lot of pop and circumstance. Funny tie ins from past movies, jokes everyone born after or before can get, the writing and acting for such a dumb idea worked. And it worked three times.

  39. This is the correct answer. The third one isn't my favourite movie but the first film is about as close to a perfect movie as you'll ever get and the second is the best sequel of all time.

  40. You seem to have confused 2 trilogies. The Titans trilogy includes, “Wrath of the Titans”, the 1981 “Clash of the Titans” film, and the remake. The Remember the Titans trilogy includes “Attack on Titan” and “Titanic”.

  41. I've been calling it "ST4: Save The Whales" for so long that I forgot the actual name. Agreed, though. STW is one of my favorites. Did you see the punk with the boombox got a cameo in an episode of Picard? High-larious.
