What do you think is the best movie trilogy? (Please no spoiler posting) My favorite is Lord of the Rings with absolutely NO CONTEST. There have been other really awesome trilogies in the past few years, but from what I've seen so far they have all resulted from one good movie that did well. With LOTR, it was filmed as a trilogy from the getgo. I realize it varies from the book plot in a few places, but in the end I think it's the very best trilogy ever made. I highly doubt any trilogy in the next 10 years can surpass it.
