Because The Dark Knight Rises could complete one of the best movie trilogies in quite some time, we wanted to compose a series of posts on trilogies which is a part of our Reel List series.   We will have three different lists released – Top 10 Trilogies, Top 10 Why Oh Why Did You Make a Sequel?, and the Top 10 Why Oh Why Didn’t You Make a Sequel?  Today we have Josh and John Kwasny’s Top 10 Trilogies and tomorrow we will have Emilio and John P’s list.  Please let us know what trilogies you feel strongly about.
