    Default Movie trilogy?

    This might have been done before

    There should be enough trilogies by now and more coming in the future.
    For example!!! Lord of the Rings, Spiderman, The Godfather, and High School Musical 3
    So, I'm would like to know your favorite trilogy and possibly one that you are looking forward to.

    Lets see... I enjoyed The Bourne Trilogy, and I'm looking forward to the Iron Man trilogy.
    You can list more if you want so have fun!

    I think the mainstream media's obsession with the number 3 is ridiculous, tacky, and denotes a complete lack of creativity by those involved. If you have a good story, a truly good story you should not limit yourself to containing it in a set of three. Whats bad though is that people will take a single good story and then once its sucessful try to warp it into three parts and it almost always fails miserably. Discounting what actually is a trilogy like the Godfather or the Lord of the Rings (which is really a tetralogy) most trilogy's are miserable failures that take a decent theme and run it into the ground (Spiderman, etc). Maybe trilogys are so prevalent because the mainstream media thinks the attention spans of the public are really that short... You'd think that things like Star Wars and Harry Potter would have convinced them otherwise.

    And since when was Iron Man being planned as a trilogy? Got any proof to back that up?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Since the Star Wars and Godfather trilogy it's sum good deal to do trilogies. Though a lot of them are made of fail like Matrix. How disappointing to end like that. Today I only watch the first one. And today they even make more than just a trilogy if the movie gets much fame. Boring too.

    Its true, It was stated from the beginning. There was a contract, I think, which said that they were to make 3 films. Like there is goin to be 5 or 6 Spiderman movies. They like to milk as much as poissible outta movie like those.

    Only found this small and non informative article ^^'' -> Iron man

    Good to hear there´s gonna be 2 more Iron Man Movies - the 1st movie was pretty cool (imo).
    As for my favorite trilogies,there´s Spiderman / Star wars (counts as a trilogy?(you mean the first movies?)lol) /Terminator (yeah lol) / Alien (but they made a fourth film too so that doesn´t count)

    Some series are having quadrilogies, like the Scary Movies and the Terminator series. I also believe the Pirates of the Carribean are aiming for that as well after seeing their cliffhanger ending.

    ^ Sadly they are making a pirates 4. The first I loved the second one I got bored and fell asleep in my chair halfway into the movie and 3rd... uh, just terrible. The only big difference in the fourth one there saying is that they cut out some of the main characters.

    My favorite trilogy has to be...The die hard series.

    But Die Hard isnt a Trilogy, its a quadrilogy. Though Die hard is posibly the most awesome action movie ever made.

    I dont really have a Favorite trilogy.. theres always one of the movies that makes the others look bad..
    Maybe back to the future, I always enjoyed watching those movies.

    Huh?what cliffhanger ending?She remained "on land" and he took the job of Davy Jones (if I dont mix here the characters up xD).
    So you mean that Jack is still searching for something or what?
    And I also thought the last part wasnt thaaaaaaaat good.The 1st part was the best =)
