i honestly dont think this is a fair poll LOL, if youre a guy my age, youre obviously gonna pick either star wars, the godfather, back to the future, and/or indiana jones (which is not a trilogy as of this year, i cant believe its not listed and the bourne series is lol), but anyone around the age of 24 and younger is gonna pick those other ones .... its just the gen gap

who the hell voted for the matrix trilogy i mean the first one was one of the best movies i've ever seen but 2 and 3 were terrible

i think

LOTR
the bourne series
star wars
the godfather

all have legitimate cases

but back to the future and pirates of the caribbean along with terminator and the matrix lose out beccause the 3rd movies and sometimes the 2nd installments all sucked big time

it's lord of the rings and it's not even close

Star Wars comes in second

And I have a feeling, in a few years, I'll be adding Nolans Batman installment to my top 3 list

I voted for the Matrix. So you best take that comment back. ;)

When I first saw the Matrix. It totally blew my mind. Never in any movie have done that to me even til this date.

When the sequels came out, it lead to a crap load of rumors, suggestions, questions, answers, riddles... It kept everyone interested about the whole Matrix universe. Sad to say it, but I was one of those geeks.

LotR movies were all CGI fluff. Sure there was some great battles, but there was not one thing in those movies that stood out.

The Bourne movies were good, but not great.

Star Wars - Never was into them, and never will. And yes, I've seen all 6.

Godfather trilogy - The first was brilliant I thought. But I've never got back to seeing 2 or 3. Don't know why. I will someday though.

I really think to fully appreciate the LotR trilogy, one must read the books,

Peter Jackson did a spot on job, and delivered the exact expectations I had from reading the novels, and even exceeded them in some aspects. It must be the most faithful book to screen adaptation ever. I cannot wait for the hobbit!

All CGI fluff? LOL, nonsense I say, and there's no way to bring those books truly to life without using CGI, there was muuch more to the trilogy than pretty images and battles

The only thing I like were the fantasy-like scenes. Other than that, I thought the entire plot was boring. True to the book or not.

I can see how someone might think the movie got slow at times, but the books deliver multiple messages. It is done masterfully. Easily the best trilogy. There were so many moments where my hair stood up on end during it. When Gandalf led the riders down the hill during the Battle of Helms Deep. When Rohan shows up to help Gondor. When Aragorn charges into the orcs in the last skirmish. The music, the messages, the lines by Bernard King throughout the trilogy...all classic.

I take that back. There were many scenes that stood out. I thought FotR was excellent. With mixture of great fantasy-like scenes. The cave, the shire, two of the elve's home like the giant trees. Those were jaw-dropping scenes that I never thought could be in movies. Only in artistic drawings. That raised my expectation level to an all-time high for the sequels. TT & RotK had some of the best battle's I've ever seen on the big screen, but nothing too spectacular for my hype. These were massive movies & I thought deserve all the praises & awards it has gotten, but it never quite met my expectations.

Terminator for me, but by default. It's the only one of the movies listed where I've seen all 3.

I like, and when I mean I like, I mean I could watch them over and over again, and I've watched them at least 10 times

Lord of the Rings
Star Wars
The godfather

But I also like the other movies, so I could vote for all of them :lol:
