A List of Some of My Favorite Best Movie Trilogies of All Time
If you are looking for a solid list of Best Movie Trilogies, you have come to the right place. Movie threequels have become commonplace in recent years, partly due to the rise in superhero films as well as the lack of confidence in Hollywood of original scripts. Movie studios often would rather go with an established brand, a sure thing.
But that is not to say there have not been some fantastic trilogies over the years. Here are some of the greatest ones.
Any list of personal best movie trilogies would have to include Indiana Jones. My personal favorite is The Temple Of Doom, but many people swear by Raiders Of The Lost Ark as their favorite film from this franchise. Even twenty years after it was completed, this film was able to release a fourth installment, which made serious money.
Another Set of Films
Another set of films that certainly makes my list is J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings Best Movie Trilogies. The great Viggo Mortenson did as good a job as possible, playing the part of King Aragorn, and Elijah Wood played an incredibly memorable Frodo Baggins.
Of course, Luke Skywalker and crew have to be mentioned. Even over 30 years after their initial release, The Star Wars films are still celebrated the world over. George Lucas was even able to release a prequel Best Movie Trilogies.
The Godfather films are worth seeing for anyone who is a fan of mafia films, or great American cinema in general. No other films have Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino cast together unless it is awesome.
Even though the last film did everything in its power to ruin the series, I feel an unexplainable loyalty to the Matrix films. I can’t argue that they do not touch any other set of films on this list, but nonetheless, I love them!
As it stands, this is my list. Let us reanalyze five years down the road, however, once we have three Avatar films to judge.
