I agree and don't agree with some of the listings above...

Godfather - third movie is considered significantly weaker than first 2; hardly escapes the 3rd act curse
Toy Story - yes, a truly fantastic trilogy that gets better with each movie
Star Wars - see Toy Story
Back to the Future - a good trilogy, but the sequels are notable steps down from the first.
Bourne - solid trilogy, gets better with each film
LOTR - perfect trilogy, but really just one long film split into three portions

Are you watching closely?
