It’s time for your weekly Top 10. This one’s pretty simple so I’d like to jump right in but I feel compelled to preface this post with two things.
1. The Lord of the Rings is NOT the greatest trilogy ever made. Not to ruin my list for you but I’ve seen it at #1 on many lists circulating around the interwebs and, quite honestly, it’s very frustrating. It may be your favorite and may not be mine but, either way, let’s be honest, it is NOT the greatest trilogy ever made… settle down!
2. There were many trilogies that suffer from a similar problem. It’s what I like to call the two out of three syndrome. That being a franchise that has two really solid films in it but suffer from having one entry in the franchise that drags them out of contention. Franchises such as The Matrix, Spiderman, X-Men, Jackass and the Dollars trilogy suffer from this horrible affliction. In fact, there were only two entries in my Top 10 that suffer from this but manage to have two films strong enough to keep them on the list… and one is a bit of a cheat. That being said, let’s jump in!
