Default Best Trilogy?

Let's make a list of trilogies that everyone should see.

Obviously you have Star Wars (the new movies don't exist, I can't hear you) and Back to the Future. And things that are kind of hit-and-miss like Jurassic Park and The Godfather.

What else am I missing.

Edit: I'll update a master list.


Ace Ventura
Alien Trilogy (*)
All Dogs Go To Heaven
Angles in the Outfield
Apocalypse Trilogy
The Apple Dumping Gang
The Apu Trilogy
Austin Powers
Back to the Future
A Better Tomorrow
Beverly Hills Cop
Big Momma's House
Blade Trilogy
Bourne Trilogy
Brave Little Toaster
Carnosaur
Cisco Kid
Cube trilogy
tentative Dark Knight Trilogy
Death Note Trilogy
Dollar Trilogy (good fucking trilogy, thanks Seth!)
Die Hard (*)
Elements Trilogy
Evil Dead Trilogy (FUCK YEAH!!!!)
Ginger Snaps
The Godfather
Ice Age
Indiana Jones (*)
Infernal Affairs
Jeepers Creepers
Jurassic Park
Legally Blonde (schwing....)
Look Who's Talking
Lord of the Rings
Lucky Stars
Mad Max (aweeeeeeeeessssooommmmme)
Mariachi Trilogy
The Matrix
The Mighty Ducks
Mission Impossible
Millennium Trilogy
The Mummy (1, 2, Scorpion King?)
MVP: Most Valuable/Vertical/Xtreme Primate
Naked Gun
Neverending Story
Oceans 11, 12, 13 Triology
Ong-Bak
Police Story Trilogy
Predator (isn't this debatable?)
Return of the Living Dead (*)
Rio Bravo
Robocop
Rush Hour
Samurai Trilogy
Sarah, Plain and Tall
Shrek
Spiderman (1, 2, 3)
Starship Troopers
Star Wars Episodes 1-3 (we can treat the old and new Star War films as independent)
Star Wars Episodes 4-6
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (*)
The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin
Three Colours Trilogy
Toy Story
Transporter
Transformers
Trilogy of the Dead
Twilight Saga (*cringe*)...isn't this gonna be 4 movies?
Underworld
Undisputed
The Vengeance Trilogy

*movies with asterisks may have more than 3 films, but are best encapsulated by their trilogy line up or have a 4th "bastard film" that came out much later in time (usually to milk money)

Infernal Affairs, Toy Story, and fingers crossed on the upcoming Riddick threequel.

There's also the The Vengeance Trilogy: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.

Rush Hour, and at least 2 out of 3 of those movies don't suck. Also the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

You put Rush Hour, but exclude Indiana Jones and Die Hard?

Right now, would say Toy Story is the most consistently great trilogy in Hollywood.

Live Free Die Hard was good. New Indiana Jones doesn't exist. We can include them both, because technically it was the Die Hard Trilogy for a long time.

I also think you could include the Alien Trilogy and pretend every other Alien movie doesn't exist.

The original Jurassic Park is awesome, the sequels are terrible.

I got one you haven't listed yet:

Ice Age. (It's better than Shrek!)

Ah, there's more news on it than I thought:

On September 5, 2011, Diesel announced that filming for the new "Riddick" film will commence soon in Canada and will be distributed by Universal. Diesel also confirmed that the film will carry an R rating.

As of September 23, 2011, the title of the film is listed as 'The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking' and word has been given that Karl Urban will reprise his role as Vaako from The Chronicles of Riddick.
