Top 10 Trilogies

1. a: The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Tied for first place, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy is one of the most complete and balanced trilogies of all time.

1. b: The Dark Knight trilogy. Being able to tie with quite possibly the greatest cinematic achievement ever, The Dark Knight Trilogy reshaped comic book films and shattered the box office.

3. Star Wars trilogy: Episodes 4, 5, and 6. These original sci-fi masterpieces made the list without question.

4. a: The Godfather trilogy. If it wasn’t for a shaky third outing, The Godfather trilogy would without hesitation be in the top 3.

4. b: Bourne: original trilogy. Being tied with the Godfather trilogy should be incentive enough to give the Bourne trilogy the respect it deserves.

6. Jurassic Park trilogy. An irreplaceable part of most generations childhood. The Jurassic Park trilogy may not be as strong from top to bottom, but its undeniably a thoroughly fun time.

7. Indiana Jones: original trilogy. Spielberg’s masterful trilogy is without a doubt nostalgic, quotable, and an unmatchable thrill.

8. The Terminator: original trilogy. Featuring Arnold in his prime. The Terminator trilogy provides a few good frights and is a shoot first, ask questions later roller coaster ride.

9. The Matrix trilogy. The most sophisticated and intelligent trilogy on the list. The last two films may not be as perfected as the original, but still manage to grab the viewers attention.

10. Vengeance trilogy. Chan-wook Park’s bloody and smart trilogy is definitely the most vicious on the list.

  1. No love for the Mad Max trilogy?

  2. Unfortunately…no. The reason is that I completely forgot. I will consider adding it to the honourable mentions.

  3. Very nice list. My favorite is probably the Star Wars trilogy. After that it’s Lord of the Rings, Godfather, Dark Knight, and Matrix for me.

    • Didn’t you find that the Matrix trilogy lacked in its last two outings? It kind of overshadows the perfection of the original.

      • Call me crazy, but I liked Reloaded just as much as the first. But Revolutions was definitely a major drop-off. As one epic story though, I think the trilogy works very well.

  4. You should do top ten movie villains next. Or your top ten movie directors. Just a suggestion, of course. 🙂

  5. Victor De Leon

    Great list! I love all of these Trilogies and own most of them on blu and dvd. I have yet to finish Park’s Trilogy. Cool post, man!
