That list makes no sense at all. How dare you calling the SW prequel Trilogy and the Matrix trilogy calling bad!!!!

And Austin Powers aint bad either ... he just has a different style Yeah baby, yeah

I've only seen Alien (1) and the first 2 Terminators ... but they're okay with me.

I think LotR is the better trilogy (the book is, the movies might become that ... we'll see in a few months). None in your list are bad trilogies ... from what I've seen (haven't seen any Godfather movie)

I agree with the Original Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Lord of the Ring. The Matrix Reloaded, I heard, plumeted faster than AotC did. But yeah, Reloaded was...boring.

Austin Powers, I've only seen the last one because I kept on hearing is was good, so I wanted to prove them wrong and failed. It was a good movie :D.

NL_Ackbar: Your list is kinda strange... Everyone I've talked to agrees that the third Godfather didn't come close to the first two (I have seen 1 and 2 but not 3). But Terminator, the SW prequels and the Matrix haven't really failed (fialed isn't a word ;)), just weren't 100% as good as the first.

I wouldn't know about Alien, but you have an interesting idea of failure. ;)

i am taking story wise and you can't call the matrix perfect...
and i am not saying that the trilogys that fialed are bad , there just not perfect.

and you know its hard to make a perfect trilogy. :)
you can make your own list if you want to

its only my view on these trilogy's

You haven't even seen the 3rd matrix yet :indif:

And I don't know how you judge "perfect."

Something is either good or bad - not perfect or imperfect. No movie is really "perfect.":p

T3 was BORING....
Reloaded wasnt bad. Better than the past 2 SW's.
And if Return of the King is anything near as good as the book... watch out! That's gonna be a good ass movie!!!

I'm not sure of the Godfather's Oscar History, but of all those, the LotR series is the only one with an Academy nomination (atleast) in Best Picture for all the movies (so far).

If RotK gets nominated, that'll be something :eek: :D

IT is a shame that LOTR didn't actually recieve the award. I'm really looking forward to Rotk.

Going on a perfect and imperfect scale then none of those trilogies would be on the perfect list. Each has it's faults, even LOTR would fail under that standard.

i dont think i'm going out on a limb in saying return of the king will be better than the two towers. more drama, more action... it's going to translate very well to the big screen.

I totally agree with you YD, though the third Austin Powers was....bleh!

I thought that the predator series was preety good along with the aliens series. I also do not agree with Ackbar.

The Alien series would have been great except for Alien 3. That one was bad compared to the others. Alien 4 (Ressurection?) was decent. Favorite has to be Aliens (2nd movie)though.

I find the SW prequels quite good.

I think Reloaded was BAD.

I haven't seen T3, so I can't say anything about it yet.

First of all: Aliens is not a trilogy, it's a Quadology, wait... Quadology? :confused:

And The Predator series, TieDefender75 mentioned them in passing, is only a Duology.

Awesome Trilogies:

Original Star Wars Trilogy
Star Wars Prequels
Indiana Jones (Soon to be no longer a trilogy, but another Quadology)
Back To The Future
Matrix (Well, it WILL be a trilogy in a few months)
Lord of the Rings (See above)
Evil Dead Series
Terminator Series
Die Hard Series (Soon to be a Quadology)
Godfather Trilogy

Only true failure of a Trilogy:

Tremors


but, really, when it comes down to it, if the movie(s) truly sucked or failed, the Movie Studios would have never okayed two more movies. They must have been good enough to make alot of money! (With the exception of the Evil Dead Trilogy, it was made on a budget consisting of Pesos and Peanuts :p )

As far as Austin Powers, I don't know where to put that. Probably in the same category as the American Pie trilogy (Stupid, but funny enough to make money enough to make more of them... ugh!) :rolleyes:

NOoooOoOOOoo!!!
I saw all 3 and I have to say they were quite entertaining. . .
Man, they were so hilarious !
I remember seeing ( a long time ago) the part in the first movie where the giant worm (or whatever is its exact name) jump the side of the cliff and then it exploded in a flurry of what makes these small instant pizzas !:D :D :D

Anyhow, yeah they did suck.
They sucked so badly that it was funny watching them though. . .

O...M...G... why???
And the SW prequels are bad... sorry. They are.
The Indy series was really, REALLY good. As was the Back to the Future one.
