10 Greatest Movie Trilogies

With Marvel's "Iron Man 3" on the horizon (May 3) and two other threequels coming down the pike later this summer ("The Hangover Part III" and Richard Linklater's "Before Midnight"), the staff here at HitFix thought it might be fun to count down some of our most beloved movie trilogies of all time. Little did we realize then how difficult the process of choosing our favorites would be, for not only are there a number of narrative trilogies worthy of consideration ("Lord of the Rings," "Star Wars," "The Dark Knight," et al.) but an even greater number of thematic ones - Park chan-Wook's "Vengeance" trilogy and Krzysztof Kie?lowski's "Three Colors" being just two of the most prominent examples.

The story is too old to be commented.

Where's Back To The Future? Indiana Jones? If you don't have at least those two then your list is flawed.

Here's a good best trilogies article.

for me, an essence of a great trilogy is that the finish product is entirely one whole story among the movies i saw that particularly works like that are; lord of the rings, toy story, dark knight, bourne, , aliens (without the fourth), Back to the future, star wars(4-6), matrix. there could be more movies that could have been a perfect trilogy but usually the third screws up like jurassic park, scream & superman(original) etc.
