When people a good 10 years older than me talk about "the trilogy" they are usually talking about star wars, sometimes people my age like to refer to their trilogy as "the lord of the rings" trilogy or they just go back to star wars as their shining example, as much as I love those films to death (especially if we count Indy) I really can't see any other trilogy carry the personal investment and the level of quality enjoyed by millions as my beloved Dark Knight Trilogy. I'm proud to have my own trilogy that i'll crankily act all elitist over in 20 or so years, and I'm very sure no other superhero franchise can imagine topping that.
