The Bourne trilogy is still the only trilogy (IMO) that gets progressively better with each movie. Identity is good, Supremacy is great, and Ultimatum is incredible. Definitely underrated.

I think the majority of us would agree that TDKR isn't as good as TDK. I might be one of the minority who even likes BB more than TDKR, but I think even the mainstream would agree with the former point

I have difficulty counting Back to the Future among the best trilogies because while I like parts 2 and 3, the first is the only one that's a true classic. You could say the same about Indiana Jones but I feel the sequels are slightly stronger there, especially with The Last Crusade.

Imo, Supremacy is the best Bourne film.

I wouldn't say the mainstream feels that way at all. Each film has their own fanbase, and the ending has just an amount of fans as TDK, imo.

3. LOTR

Haha I hate when people say this like its the common fact. The film got better reviews than Begins and still ranks among one of the best action/adventure films ever made. Yes it wont win THE oscar but just because it wasn't the movie YOU wanted it to be doesn't mean it was unanimously a let down.

Honestly i dont find more hate for TDKR anywhere more than here!

When i think of trilogies regarding a main character progress during 3 movies , i always thought about Godfather (Michael Corleone) , Star Wars OT (Luke) and Inagaki Samurai's Trilogy (Musashi)...so in that sense i add a fourth one with Dark Knight Trilogy ( Bruce Wayne).

But a trilogy can also be a list of 3 movies where the actions occurs in the same universe , or 3 movies linked thematically. That list would be more vast.

On the genre , Nolan did something unparalleled , in terms quality and coherence.

1) Indiana Jones - still a trilogy for me. And with the best 3rd movie of a trilogy ever.

2) Back To The Future - BTTF I is my favourite movie of all times. BTTF II is nearly as great. Part III is kinda lame compared to I and II but still very entertaining.

3) The Godfather - I and II are absolutely great. III is pretty good.

The TDK-Trilogy? Mmmmmh. TDKR was an awful film IMHO. I even enjoyed Spider-Man III much more. And X-Men III, of course.

The Godfather Trilogy
The Dark Knight Trilogy
Back to the Future Trilogy
Bourne Trilogy
The Matrix Trilogy


I purposely didn't include my Star Wars because it's not a trilogy in my eyes anymore. And yes, you read that right, no Rings trilogy. Doesn't belong with those five. Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy would be sixth on my list.
