didn't add JP, b/c they are making a 4th one 8)
again some have different interpretations of trilogies. look up any movie site, some of the titles I listed are under their best trilogy titles of all-time. some don't count those new die hards/terminators/etc.
if you look at my 8 (as a kid and and adult), they are all 3 movie sets.
Clerks2 is such a massively underrated movie.
I thought it went:
Predator > Predator 2 > Predators
I could be wrong though.
I agree with Alien not being a trilogy.
Yeah, in my interpretation of trilogies, it excludes a FIVE-movie series. I mean, its not like the first three Die Hards were some kind of 3-part story that they later added a couple onto at the end. They're just movies that are sequels to each other.
I think this is the right answer... Godfather 3 was horrible... Indiana Jones 2 was average at best... It would have to be between Toy Story and Star Wars (I refuse the acknowledge the last 3 pieces of crap as even counting).
ALL TRILOGIES ARE A SET OF THREE AND ONLY THREE MOVIES.
A THREE MOVIE SET IS NOT NECESSARILY A TRILOGY.
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
I don't really remember the set-up of Predator 2, but Predators is probably a lot less related to Predator and Predator 2 than it is to the AVP movies.
This is borderline movie snobbery, but these movies are really good, and probably deserve a mention: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Three_Colors_trilogy
I think my favorite of Smiley's original list is Toy Story, but that's personal taste. Objectively, I'd vote for Lord of the Rings in a "greatest trilogy" poll.
High School Musical
High School Musical 2
High School Musical 3: Senior Year
My vote would go for Toy Story. Probably the greatest "3rd movie in a trilogy" ever.
Would you consider Aliens a trilogy?
didnt I already say that?
Nolan's Batman Trilogy is #1.
The Godfather is the most ridiculously overrated movie of all time.
Victoria Concordia Crescit
Men in Black!
You'd think the guy who played Randle would've taken some acting classes in the decade plus gap between Clerks I & II. I could excuse his shitty acting in the first one because it was a low budget indie film. Plus he was surrounded by other shitty actors so it wasn't as noticeable. But in Clerks II he's distractingly awful when doing scenes with actual movie actors.
And Star Wars fucking sucks. The latest three are unwatchable.

This. I can't believe anyone would think different. You can make a case for The dark night but nothing else is even in the same realm.
Can you give us a clue what you didn't like about it? Story, script, acting.......?
Slow. Overly dramatic. Unbelievable loving father/husband figure that is the head of a mafia crime family. Sonny Corleone is sort of the most realistic or believable character. Cheats on his wife, beats the crap out of his sister's abusive husband, but walks into a hailstorm of bullets taking what seems to be 1,000 rounds to the chest before the 1,001st finally takes him out.
I'm not saying it's terrible or bad, just overrated by everyone it seems. Like it seems that everyone says it's great because they feel like they are supposed to say it's great. But seriously, what mobster is some lovable dude like Don Corleone? That's not believable.
I don't understand why Don Corleone's character is hard to believe. His family personality fits perfectly with the stereotypical Italian family - family is everything, which is why he tries so hard to protect the women (and even Michael, early on) from the realities of the business. It's not like he's out there shooting everyone in sight or something - he's behind the scenes, calling the shots, and generally trying to orchestrate a downplay in the level of violence between the five families.
I thought it was a bit slow the first time I saw it, but that was more because I was having some trouble remembering who was who and such. Once I saw it the first time, it moves plenty fast for me.
I'm not even sure what your point about Sonny is. A shooting scene in a movie is unrealistic? I'm shocked!
Lord of the Rings.
