Yeah Bourne and Toy Story are the tops in my books. I really wonder if that might change when the final Cornetto trilogy film comes out.

The Look Who's Talking trilogy is better than any of these.

Wisecracking dogs and babies with the voices of Willis and DeVito = unmitigated hilarity.


Hell yeah, can't believe i forgot that one!

Hmm... Vengeance trilogy? Samurai trilogy? Dragon Tattoo trilogy? Dirty Harry trilogy? Infernal Affairs trilogy? Dr. Mabuse trilogy? Scorpion trilogy?

Better? perhaps not, but certainly worth a mention in a thread like this.

My favourite triumvirates - those in which all three films are masterpieces - are (off the top of my head) probably the Apu trilogy, The Bill Douglas trilogy and Lord of the Rings. I have a pronounced weakness for Once Upon a Time in China too.

But isn't Evil Dead 2 a remake? (some claim it to be a 'requel')
And if it is, it cant really be called a trilogy?

Personally even if it is regarded as not being a remake I still think the 3rd loses some of its predecessors edge.

Star wars, back to the future, and, are you serious indiana jones. Have you people no taste sure back to the future, raiders of the last ark, and star wars are great filks but, seriously, indiana jones and the temple of doom, and god awful back to the future 2, c'mon.
Surtoward the end of TDKR is a bit hurried, but overall it is a great series of films. The lord of the rings are in a totaly different leaugue they in my opinion are one big film in 3 parts!
This generation of batman has been solid and somewhat believable. And the opening sequence in TDKR is in my opinion one of the best starys to a film ever, surpasing the opener of casino royale, little to no cgi from what I could see.

Can we just lump them all together as being overrated blockbuster trash? Good.

Yes you are right, you are f'ing boring.

Well I'm going to see TDKR for the second time. Thoroughly enjoyed it first time and had no problems with Banes voice. It was probably THE loudest film I've ever seen. I can't wait to hear it on a more balanced system at home.Sure it had it's contrivances but if you study, most films do somewhere, e.g. so Luke Skywalker trains to be a jedi in about a week.

As for greatest trilogy it's up there. BTTF, great first film, witty, over clever second, slightly dull third. LOTR, on a par. Star Wars now tarnished by Lucas. Toy Story, maybe familiarity has dulled them for me(kids watched 1 & 2 endlessly), Bourne, first film was a by the numbers average action film, gets better as it goes on. Dollars,Vengeance not trilogies in the classic sense,just films related by director and subject matter. Godfather, on a par.(I can see past Sofia Coppola).

I would say that it's up there. The original Star Wars and LotRs are my top two and then Nolan's Batman.

The problems that I have with BttF and the Indy films are that there's one film in the trilogy where I just didn't like it. Mainly BttF III and the Temple of Doom and we shall not mention the abomination of the Crystal Skull 'film'.

No way on most of those! The Matrix never should have been a trilogy if it had stayed as one film it would have been perfect. JP only had one decent film and then two poor sequals. Paranormal Activity is another one film series, same with the Mummy, and don't get started on what a silly shout Transformers is

Also don't get the Bourne segestion like QN said it got better when there was a change in director, but even with Greengrass there is no way it can be called a great trilogy.

Nolan's Batman trilogy would be up there but I would say The Three Colours and Toy Storys trilogies would beat them.

Nolans batman is one of the best trilogy's for me. Toy story is good but the 3rd is a let down and number 2 is by far the best. Bourne is definitely one of the best too.


Rises was such a great ending to the series. It has a few plot holes here and there bu that can be forgiven because of how good it is.
Just think, Warner bros could of let Michael bay lose with batman and we would have no story but plenty of fireworks.

Really can't argue with the Jackass trilogy. Hilarious stuff.

I only recently watched The Bourne Trilogy and can say that IMO that trilogy is better than BB and TDK

Bourne is not only incredibly solid right from the start, but gets better and better. Also the very end is perfection.

Surely Bourne still stands up as trilogy despite "Bourne Legacy" as it's not a direct sequel, just set within the same universe. You're not going to stop calling LOTR a trilogy once the Hobbit is release.

I thought previously that the Bourne trilogy just barely beat the Dark Knight trilogy, however on thinking about this for a while..

Batman Begins is better than The Bourne Identity.

The Dark Knight is better than The Bourne Supremacy.

The Bourne Ultimatum is better ( just about ) than The Dark Knight Rises.

That means Batman beats Bourne 2-1, so therefore The Dark Knight trilogy is indeed the best evah!
