Best trilogy ever?
Since I’m a movie nerd I’ve read more than one article detailing how the Bourne films are the best triolgy ever. While this is not a huge feat given that most triolgies contain one film that’s crap (Indiana Jones, The Godfather) it’s still a bold statement. There are only a couple I can name where each film maintains a quality picture (Lord of the Rings, The Colors Trilogy), but there are so many that start off well only to tank by the end. Movies like Back to the Future, Die Hard, and the Matrix were crowd pleasers for whatever reason, but their sequels hardly lacked the charm that once brought in the box office.
For the most part a film has to be wildly successful or have admiral qualities to turn a sequel, but I ask you dear BOSCT readers what’s the worst trilogy you’ve witnessed. Can you think of three films that still make you wonder why any of them were made?
My vote is for the Look Who’s Talking films. I’ll never understand the success; however mild, of those films.
