I almost didn’t do this top ten because I know film purists are going to be upset I didn’t include the Three Colors trilogy or Ingmar Bergman’s trilogy of faith. I am sorry, but I just haven’t seen those films, but I plan to, considering so many think they are good, if not brilliant.
The second issue with this piece is that I didn’t include any film franchises that have more than three films, because technically they aren’t trilogies. This means the Indiana Jones trilogy doesn’t count, neither does the Rambo, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Alien, Shrek, Jaws or Final Destination franchises. I know the fourth film in the Indy franchise isn’t out yet, but it is close enough that I counted it out even though it definitely would have been near the top.
You may wonder about Star Wars, well, I count the original trilogy separate from the prequel trilogy. That’s just me and I really think a lot of the movie world does the same. I hope it doesn’t upset you guys, but if it does there isn’t a lot I can do about it. Sorry, I know there are also several trilogies many of you would like to see on this and I hope to hear from all of you in the comment section. I am sure one of your favorites rests in the list I made, but just didn’t make the cut.
With all that said, let’s get underway.
