    I would like everyone to post their top 3 or 5 choices also. :D

    I will wait on mine after a few people have voted. Sorry if I forgot any other major trilogies such as Die Hard, Austin Powers, Karate Kid, Rambo, and Beverly Hills Cop.

    The Terminator is not a trilogy, I refuse to accept that last one as part of the Terminator mythology. :p

    My top three:
    1. Lord of the Rings
    2. Indiana Jones
    3. Alien Trilogy (the forth doesn't exist, nope, nope, nope).

    Ok, here's why I'm not adding things like The Godfather. The first two movies were amazing, then along comes the thrid and blech is an understatement for that movie.

    I have to be able to really enjoy all the movies for them to rank. :)

    Here are Mine:

    1. Lord of the Rings
    2. Indiana Jones
    3. Godfather
    4. Alien

    It's a toss-up for me on the first two, but I had to choose so I chose LOTR trilogy just because how much I enjoy both the movies and the books.

    I know I'm going to get flamed for this,but as much as I loved the LOTR films,I had to go with the Indy trilogy as my top choice.

    Don't worry Idgie I to went with Indy. And Susie how can you say that about T3? I think that T3 is much better that the T1. But I will agree with you on Alien 4. That movie just sucked.

    As for my top 5:
    1: Indiana Jones
    2: Terminator
    3: Superman (not counting Superman IV)
    4: Die Hard
    5: Alein/LOTR (a tie)

    As for the Godfather can you belive that I have never watched any of them.

    I can't vote cuz I have too many. I no particular order:

    Matrix
    LOTR
    American Pie
    Austin Powers
    New Jersey Trilogy (Kevin Smith, and I know there is 5)
    And even though the sequels aren't out yet I am sure that The Boondock Saints trilogy will shoot to the top of my list when it does.

    1)LOTR
    2) The Jersey Trilogy (K. Smith)
    3)Godfather (although I agree the last one was quite intolerable)
    4)Terminator (I liked T3)
    5)Back to the Future

    I also have to throw in The Red Curtain Trilogy (Moulin Rouge, Romeo and Juliet, Strictly Ballroom). I don't know if I can classify as a favorite trilogy. I favor Moulin Rouge over the other 2. I also thought about Die Hard but I didn't like 2 or 3 as much as 1.

    My three favorite Non-Star Wars trilogy is Lord of the Rings, Indy, and Highlander ( I don't accept the last one in that series. They killed my favorite guy.)

    From TheOneRing.net

    The Lord of the Rings trilogy today became the most nominated film series in Academy Award history with 30 nominations, surpassing both the Godfather trilogy (28) and the Star Wars franchise (21).

    First: How can the Keven Smith films be a trilogy when you're all saying that there are 5???? What's up with that? Yes, this is from the person who insists that The Godfather III is not part of the "trilogy" and likes to think that last Alien movie never existed.

    Second: Wooohooo to LOTR!! It deserves the Oscar nods, and you know I'll be watching that show! Ok, I watch the Oscars every year, but this year I'll have something to root for.

    The scottish hobbit is in two of the films up for best picture! [face_love]

    Oh, and I can't help it ... but does anyone else have horrible flashbacks of the gnocchi scene in Godfather III (that terrible movie that should not have been made) when they see Sofia Coppola? Yeah, probably just me. [face_plain]

    well kevin smith refers to those five movies as the new jersey trilogy so everyone else just considers then a trilogy.

    Kevin Smith considers the Jersey Trilogy to be the first 3 movies: Clerks, Mallrats & Chasing Amy (not all 5 or 6). The last movies are just part of the View Askewniverse.

    Oh, why couldn't it be Clerks, Dogma, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back? bummer

    So, does that mean you guys are going to consider Jersey Girl to be the latest in the Jersey "trilogy"?

    When Jay and Silent Bob SB came out, Smith posted on his website that it was no longer a trilogy. You can still get a box set for the first three though.

    By the way...comic book the movie is awesome, just watched it.

    Indiana Jones is a classic!
    LOTR is not far behind...but it takes time before someone should be able to make that claim.
