Yesterday we looked at John & Josh Kwasny’s top 10 trilogies, and today we will see the sequel of that list by Emilio and John.  This list was inspired by the recent Batman franchise, which may prove to be one of the best movie trilogies in quite some time.  Hope you enjoy our Reel Lists, please compose your own and share them with the readership at Reel Thinking.

John’s Top 10:

  1. Star Wars IV-VI
  2. The Lord of the Rings
  3. Indiana Jones (Kingdom of the Crystal what?  Never heard of it…)
  4. Toy Story
  5. The Bourne films
  6. Back to the Future (The second one almost ruined it, but the third made up for it.)
  7. The Godfather
  8. Aliens
  9. Die Hard (1, 3 & 4..not 2)
  10. Batman (Christopher Nolan’s)

Emilio’s Top 10:

  1. Lord of the Rings
  2. Nolan’s Batman (I know, one is still to be seen. I have no doubts, however. )
  3. Original Star Wars
  4. Toy Story
  5. Can I consider Iron man 1, 2 and Avengers as a trilogy? Just did.
  6. Indiana Jones 1-3
  7. Godfather
  8. Mission Impossible 1, 3 and 4. (Number two apparently never happened.)
  9. Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13
  10. Bourne trilogy (Rare case of the third being better than the second which is better than the first.)

    Nothing about Hannibal the Cannibal, Mad Max, or Terminator (Terminator you guys). And I know they get worse going through time but all of the biblical parallels in The Matrix deserve at least a shout out. You can have all the change in the back pocket of my good jeans. Come on this is 1.93 we’re talking about here. Guys? Your loss then. I’m off to put a down payment on a vanilla milk shake.

    Ingmar Bergman’s Silence of God trilogy (Winter Light, Through a Glass Darkly and The Silence)… The three colors trilogy (Kieslowski)… the Sergie Leone man with no name trilogy… John Ford’s Calvary trilogy. Also Van Sant’s Elephant, Last Days and Paranoid Park are kind of a loose “death” trilogy… Antonioni’s L’avventura, L’eclisse and La Notte all better than any of these, save maybe Star Wars and Godfather and Toy Story.

    Thanks dudes,

  4. […] other sequels and trilogies that are excellent (check out our posts on Top 10 Trilogies part 1 and part 2), however, both of these films are based off of pre-existing […]

  5. […] series on trilogies (see what we did there?).  Our Top 10 Trilogies can be found here and here. Our next list will be the Top 10 films that should have a trilogy/sequel, entitled: Why Oh Why […]
