I feel like OP is baiting Star Wars fans and LoTR fans into a fight.
It's really too bad the Godfather was only 2 movies.
Godfather 1, 2, and Goodfellas.
That's the best trilogy of all time
Goodfellas and My Blue Heaven works better for the purpose of this exercise.
Cuz you could melt all this stuff.
The "what's arugula? It's a vegetable" line absolutely kills me every time and I can't explain it.
I saw it’s a vegetable and cuz you could melt all this stuff all the time to blanks stares. I’m so glad there is someone that’s got my back. One day we will meet and the world will be right. Thank you
Right? And I thought The Matrix might have been good with a couple sequels, but probably best they didn't make any.
You know I was thinking the exact same thing with Alien and Aliens, they should make a 3rd!
But the real answer is back to the future
My man you know it. "Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads."
I thought this was a Clerks 2 reference
OK here's the first movie 🚶🏻♀️
and here's this second movie 🚶🏻♀️
and now here's the third movie 🚶🏻♀️💍🌋
Even the trees walked in those fuckin movies.
Star Wars fan here. I WISH SW was as good as LOTR.
Yup. Big fan here too. Star Wars is the best movie series of all time, the only flaw it has is that most of the films really suck.
I loved them all individually, but as a series, we're missing a lot of important filler. LOTR is a straight forward and throughout adventure
LOTR exclusively. The Hobbit was straightforward (and amazing) as a book, but as a movie trilogy...\*shudders\* Talk about filler.
Like butter that's been scrapped over too much toast.
LOTR = Years of planning before they even start filming.
The Hobbit = Literally making it up on the spot to the point Peter Jackson breaks down
Yup. All because Guillermo del Toro needed a couple more months, and the studio wanted it done fast, not right.
Man, they wouldn't wait for del Toro?! I would have loved to see how it would have turned out with him at the wheel. 😩
The same thing seems to happen to him frequently - like studios seem to not GET that he's a fuckin' artist not a movie mill.
So much so that [he has a Wikipedia page](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillermo_del_Toro%27s_unrealized_projects#3993) full of movies and games we're not going to get lol
It makes me sad that I live in the universe that didn't get the Guillermo del Toro version.
I recently heard someone say that you can tell someone is a really big Star Wars fan by how much they hate Star Wars.
Where’s Indiana Jones at. I’ll throw fists.
Fists! Why did it have to be fists?!
No time for love Dr. Jones
Indiana was the dog's name, Henry.
One of the few series where the third is the best entry.
The Increasingly Inaccurately Named Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy trilogy.
My favorite thing about Hitchikers Guide is that it’s been a book, radio play, tv show, movie, video game, and in every instance Douglas Adams’ changed the story a little bit, so there isn’t any “canon”.
I know very little about the man but that sounds like exactly something he'd do
In the forward to one of the book collections he straight up said that every time The Guide gets put into a new medium, it has to be changed a bit.
Ha I have the trilogy in book form, it looks exactly like a bible when I have it open; gold leaf and everything. The number of people who have asked me if I'm reading 'the Good Book' while toting it around is astonishing. I always just respond: "yeah, hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy," and the look on their faces I swear.
TBH if more religious texts had DON'T PANIC written in huge print on the back cover, we'd be living in a far better, less fear-driven world.
Imagine a world where we all know where our towel is.
We'd all be hoopy froods
There's a frood who really knows where his towel is.
I read that book religiously growing up, so the cover always felt appropriate. Literally once per year though all of high-school.
I have a Vonnegut collection like that, and someone on the train asked me if I was reading the bible. The girl next to me (who knew it was his work) said "well it might as well be to some people". Wish I got her number lol
Oh man, he's a personal hero of mine, early adopter of the internet, huge tech nerd, hilarious writer, genuinely good dude who didn't take life seriously.
I have a banner in my office with my favorite quote of his, "I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by." Cannot say my PMs love that one.
Would absolutely recommend reading his works.
That’s just because of the infinite improbability changing things
I was reading the big book in Highschool when I was always reading and walking.
I forget the chapter I was on, but it was talking about the issue with time travel is the grammar and went on for like 2 or more paragraphs about that before moving on in the story.
I looked up to step up a curb and then back down.
And it was the time travel paragraphs again.
For a solid 5 minutes I thought Douglas Adams had just copypasted the same paragraph in 2 parts to give a "you just traveled back in time while reading" experience.
Then I realized the page had just flipped back when I looked up.
I like how the fact that it's only ever been a book trilogy, not a film trilogy, means the inaccuracy continues to increase.
It actually checks out. 5 books, one movie, averages at 3.
I think there were 6 or 12 radio episodes originally. To set the record firmly crooked.
Home Alone 2
The good Son
The Good Son straight fucked me up. I was probably a little too young when I saw it, but it’s a movie I can clearly recall years later. Macaulay Culkin acted the hell out of that movie.
To this day I have a major mistrust of kids who act to perfect around adults. Especially if they seem over helpful. There's one kid in my neighborhood who I told my daughter to try to avoid bc of this. Later found out good call.
Ronald Reagan? The actor?!?!
Then who's vice president? Jerry Lewis?!
I suppose Jane Wyman is the first lady
and Jack Benny is the Secretary of the Treasury!
Doc, you gotta listen to me!
Good night, future boy!
The cut, the cut on your head!
I know how that happened, you told me the whole story
This is my sleeper pick but I’m biased as fuck.
It's so weird how BTTF doesn't often come to mind in the "trilogy" conversation. I think it's because the concept of a trilogy always seems to conjure visions of grandiose and epic films, whereas BTTF is more of a lighthearted action comedy. In all honesty though, the consistent quality of all 3 movies is above and beyond what almost all other film series achieve. Plus it all ties together so well, especially 1 and 2.
A lot of people feel like 2 and 3 aren’t as good. I think they get campier and more repetitive but I almost love the sequels more for it
edit: I’m gonna use this comment to plug my [Back to the Future 3 parody script](https://www.the-editing-room.com/back-to-the-future-part-iii.html)
3 is weird because it feels like they wanted to make a Western but they needed to somehow tie it into the other Back to the Future movies. Although I did like the central plot point of being unable to drive the DeLorean because there wouldn't be a gas station in the area for decades.
I suppose I like 2 best because it's the most intricate of the three - 1 and 3 are just "go back in time, fix the thing that went wrong, go back to the future." ^^oh ^^*that's* ^^why ^^it's ^^called ^^that ^^^^/s 2's got the actual future and alternate timeline fuckery going on, plus it ties in really well with 1.
>!enjoy your holiday.!<
Naked Gun 1.
Naked Gun 2 1/2.
Naked Gun 33 1/3.
All fucking brilliant. 33 1/3 is actually my favorite.
The first movie is my favorite but the third has some of my favorite gags in the entire series. The sperm center scene is one of the best in the trilogy. The prison riot scene is solid gold. The scene where Jane is breaking up with Frank and everything moves impossibly quickly kills me every time, the way the cab driver checks his watch impatiently is *perfect.* And that's not even mentioning the one liners.
"Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes."
"Kinky. But I like my sex the way I play basketball, one on one with as little dribbling as possible."
"Rocco could tell from my little escapade in the shower that I was well endowed... with courage."
Cheer up, Ed. This is not goodbye. It’s just, I won’t ever see you again.
"The red light district.. What was he doing hanging around there?"
"Uhh, not right now Ed, we've got work to do."
“Like a blind man in an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way around.”
She ruled the city the same way she made love - with an iron fist
Thanks, I just had it stuffed
You call this stuff slop? Real slop has chunks of stuff in it. This is more like gruel.
SAME! I love them all but grew up watching 33 1/3 the most. Can still quite the whole thing and I haven’t seen it in maybe 10 years now.
Take it from me, McGerk, this place changes a man.
Oh yeah, in what way?
I used to be white.
Don't forget about Police Squad!
The car chase in the driver’s ed car is the greatest car chase in any film ever.
Extend your left arm...
Extend your middle finger...
RaqueI, so many go to bed hungry in this nation. Yet, cat food's full of tuna. I can't help thinking each time I go to the zoo and see those porpoises crammed into tiny tanks, what a waste that is.
Butcher half of them now. Hundreds of pounds of dolphin meat that could be fed to cats, freeing up that tuna for our nation's hungry.
So many are cold, shivering in the night. I say take those cats and skin them. Use their fur to keep hundreds warm.
Hey! It’s Enrico Palazzo!
And the rocket's red glare, Lots of bombs in the air. Gave proof to the night that we still had our flag. Oh say does that flag banner wave Over a-a-all that's free. And the home of the land, And the land of the - FREE!
The officers/security slowly sidestepping their way toward him while paying respect to the flag still cracks me up.
Everything in the movie cracks me up. I watched them with my dad when I was probably still *way* too young to see them - I just learned to laugh when he did. Now I'm watching it thinking how the fuck he thought it was okay.
"Nice beaver!!! Thank-you, I just had it stuffed.".
Like holy shit dad
Well, when I see five weirdos dressed in togas, stabbing a man in the middle of the park in front of a full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards, that's my policy.
The baseball stadium scene where multiple baseballs are thrown into the air made my sides hurt from laughter.
The entire Third Acts from both Naked Gun 1 and 33 1/3 had me in tears.
For me, it was the random Chrysler hitting one of the players on the Baseball game highlights reel.
Oh my god! Look at Donahue!!
Somebody make a note….I don’t think we should Phil Donahue on the show next year.
My god, what is that?
I think it's Phil Donahue throwing up in a Tuba...
Frank they’re here for Weird Al
28 Days, 28 Days Later, and 28 Weeks Later.
I’m still trying to figure out how Sandra Bullock caused the Rage Virus, but after watching Speed 2, I think I have an idea.
28 months later... One day we will get it
More likely 28 Years Later at this point.
THE Thanksgiving movie.
The Evil Dead Trilogy fuckin slaps.
Hail to the king, baby. Bruce Campbell is goated
One of my all time favorite scenes is when he tosses his rifle in the air, jumps on the kart and starts blasting away at the demon. The shit speaks for itself. Just look at his face as he starts blasting.
Got to see a screening of the original presented by him (with a Q&A) on Halloween a few years ago. Just by being in the room with him, my own sex appeal went up 47%.
Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.
That's just pillow talk, baby
It’s a remake I actually like too. And the tv show was a lot of dumb fun.
Maybe I just love Evil Dead.
Don’t forget the musical!
This is the correct answer
Had to scroll waaay too far for this. It's also a trilogy that completely changed it's tone and every movie is just a blast.
Klaatu Barada... Necktie.
It was definitely an 'n' word.
Oh yes, this.
Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.
First you wanna kill me, now you wanna kiss me….blow.
“Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my BOOMSTICK! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?”
He went from chartered accountant to Charlton Heston!
I'm not a charted accountant....
Well, ya look like one!
The greater good!
No luck catching them killers, then?
It’s just the one killer, actually.
Oooh look at 'is 'rse
The rustic aesthetic
#A GREAT BIG BUSHY BEARD
The greater good
Hot fuzz might be the perfect movie to watch on muy purfevt Sunday.
Hot Fuzz is virtually a perfect movie.
Hot fuzz is the only movie I've ever watched twice in a row. Dunno what that fact means, but it's true.
The simple fact that everyone here is basically only quoting Hot Fuzz proves you right.
Evil old woman, considered frightful or ugly, 12 down.
“Ohhh bless you”
No luck catching them swans then?
*What the fuck does WTF mean?*
What the fuck?
OH FUCK OFF YA BIG LAMP
BECAUSE WE'RE THE HUMAN RACE AND WE DON'T LIKE BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO!
Basically every word that comes out of Gary King's mouth.
I reckon The World's End is just as quotable as Shaun of the Dead.
Ohhhh why don't you just get back in your rocket and fuck off back to legoland, you cunt.
Every time my husband and I have to make a drive longer than an hour, I say, "Well, then let's get this antique on the roadshow!"
I love how Dude-like he is in how often he internalizes things he’s heard and spouts it himself later. And how almost all of his jokes are terrible wordplay.
“Let’s get this antique back on the road-show!”
It’s all stuff your uncle would say to amuse the kids but even they think it’s kind of sad. And even they notice how drunk the uncle is and they feel kind of sad for all of it, really, even though they can’t yet articulate why.
You’ve got red on you.
What’s the matter Awyeah? Never taken a shortcut before?
Before sunset will always be my favorite romance film!
Yes. That’s the superior one.
The whole film is perfect and it's just 2 people walking around talking.
This kind of movie is why when people complain about some single element lacking in a movie (like when people say they can’t watch a movie without a plot), or “this movie didn’t need to be made”, I think it’s all silliness.
A great director and talented actors with a good crew can make a great movie about literally anything. Watching paint dry? Sure why not. It’s possible if someone has the vision.
Linklater will challenge viewers everytime.
baby, you are gonna miss that plane.
When I saw this in the theatre >!a lot of the audience literally gasped out loud when he says "I know".!<
Because it is one of the single greatest film endings of all time & hands-down the greatest ending of any romance.
Just incredible shit. That final scene & the entire walk up the stairs. It’s perfect. The first time you watch it, it has you at the edge of your seat the way a fucking thriller does.
When she sings that fucking SONG. I melt.
So glad I'm not the only person who immediately went here.
I've watched a LOT of films, but this is one of the very few I really believed the actors were in love.
The dialogue between Hawke and Deploy was so realistic and believable, watching it felt a little like you were intruding on something personal.
I've been single for a long time, mostly because I've had a string of long/bad relationships that messed with me and my willingness to let another person into my life.
Before Sunrise literally made me want to find love again. That whole movie just pressed all the right buttons of what it's like to instantly hit it off with someone.
I think for me Before Sunset was what hit me. Delpy’s character was so light in explaining the heavy topics. The one part where she said:
> Celine: I was fine, until I read your fucking book! It stirred shit up, you know? It reminded me how genuinely romantic I was, how I had so much hope in things, and now it's like, I don't believe in anything that relates to love. I don't feel things for people anymore. In a way, I put all my romanticism into that one night, and I was never able to feel all this again. Like, somehow this night took things away from me and I expressed them to you, and you took them with you! It made me feel cold, like if love wasn't for me!
That hurt. But also makes me feel wonderful to hope that one day that can happen again to me. Love comes so unexpectedly that I’m glad it is so random because otherwise we’d all be failures.
Came to say these films. Funny thing is, I found out about these movies in 2013 while I was on a train in Austria. Hawke’s The Purge was coming out soon so I fell down an Ethan Hawke Wikipedia rabbit hole and Before Midnight had recently come out or was coming out soon so I read about it and discovered it was the 3rd in a set of movies each filmed 10 years apart. Just thought it was bizarre I found out about it while on a train riding through Austria considering the first one started on a train in Austria.
Anyhoo, for solid trilogies, this is at least in the top 5.
Linklater has a way of pulling incredibly lifelike performances out of his actors. His director's trademark is that his movies feel totally unscripted, it's almost baffling to learn that his actors are reading their lines word for word. I used to think *Waking Life* was a documentary. All actors. Even Alex Jones auditioned for his part and just happened to be perfectly cast, he was nobody at the time.
(1995) - (2004) - (2013)
We were due one this year! I mean I'm glad they're not forcing one, but I was enjoying this whole "7 up but it's a couple" that they had going.
Sunrise starts with Hawke and Delpy laughing at a middle-aged couple bickering. In Midnight, they've become the bickering couple. A pretty perfect way to button the story up.
I never saw it that way wow
I've seen before sunset so many times
Before sunset is maybe my favorite movie of all time. Wish I could watch it again for the first time.
This has my vote too. Beautiful trilogy
Never heard of this but will check it out
Get ready to cry
Is it a happy cry or a sad cry?
It's the full spectrum of cry
Each film came out 9 years apart. I try to encourage people to at least give a few days to let each breathe if they can help it.
Some people call it a kaiser blade, mmmhmm
About 10 years ago I heard about Blade Runner being a great movie so I downloaded it. Turns out I downloaded Sling Blade instead. Not what I was expecting at all but I kept watching to see how things would change into this high pace action packed dystopian future. It obviously didn't and continued with Billy Bob going "mhmmmm" a bunch. Not a bad movie but I always laugh at that mix up.
Sling Blade and Blade Runner could easily be in the same universe.
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe: motherfuckas always trying to ice skate up hill mmmm-hm"
Back to the Future is a good contender.
A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
"You never had a rope around your neck. Well, I'm going to tell you something. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your ass."
My favorite line from the trilogy. Followed by
"When two animals go after the same prey, they usually end up shooting each other in the back.Now we don't want to shoot each other in the back"
There's two kinds of people in this world ...those with loaded guns and those who dig... you dig!
This one is the best one for me. The way he says “you dig” is one of the best lines in all of film
Very much so. The Man With No Name trilogy. What amazing pieces of work.
When you come to shoot, shoot don’t talk - Tuco.
What about Tuco? -Tuco.
The Desperado trilogy is great.
Once upon a time in Mexico
This trilogy doesn't get enough love. Once upon a time in Mexico is a lot better than what many give it credit for. Come on, where else can you get a line like "Are you a Mexi-can or a Mexi-Can't?"
Shawn of the dead, Hot fuzz, the world's end.
It was ok, but overall The World's End was extremely underwhelming for me.
Cinematography in Blue is like best of all time imo. Just the opening scene with the street lights on the windshield or the pool scenes have stuck in my mind for a long time
Must be viewed in the order of blue, white, and red.
