The original yes, the prequel movies weirdly went from underrated to overrated and the Disney films are straight trash

The prequels are good. The plot of the bad guys being the exact same situation as the rebels from the original trilogy but the Jedi and the 'good guys' are fighting against them but serving a corrupt government that has largely already transitioned into the Empire in all but name without anyone noticing, is secretly genius. What it faces the most criticism for is the grade school level dialogue, but it's a film made for children that age. The fact that Lucas was able to pack in a political plot that complex but appeal to children is incredible.

I made a whole tier list for this question a year ago.

S tier: Lord of the Rings, Star Wars OT, Godfather.

A tier: The Dark Knight, Indiana Jones, Back To the Future, Toy Story.

B Tier: Blade Trilogy, Spider Man, John Wick, Taken, Jason Bourne, Matrix, Shrek, The Mighty Ducks

C Tier: Aliens, Star Wars Prequels, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Madagasgar, The Naked Gun, The Evil Dead, The X-Men 1-3, Dawn of the Dead (my pick, but not my favorite tier horror fans will disagree),

D Tier: Hunger Games, Scream, Austin Powers, the Mariachi Trilogy, Mad Max, Jurassic Park, Robocop (there's a Robocop 3 that you may not remember), Twilight, Terminator 1-3 (I do NOT want to consider this a trilogy).

F Tier: The Star Wars sequels

Back to the future. Best trilogy

Edit: Wow thanks. Glad so many agree. All I saw was LOTR. I personally was horrified when I watched the first movie and found out it just was the beginning of the story. It didn’t grab me so never went back. Back to the future is definitely better than LOTR.

Unfortunately the biggest problem with TDKR is that it had to follow TDK which was probably the 1st or 2nd best superhero movie ever. So expectations for the finale were so high. TDKR was a good film, it just wasn’t great enough as a finale.

A barely relevant but absolutely relevant to the testament of a great Trilogy that is the Kung fu Panda, although it may declassify as a mere trilogy once the inevitable 4th film of Kung fu Panda arrives to this earthly plane.

It’s cliche for sure, but only because it’s 100% true. All 3 are perfect. This question isn’t which trilogies had the best 2 out of 3.

Everybody is making excuses for their otherwise “best”. Zero excuses need to be made for LotR.

I wish people would just poll these.

But anyway.... This is the only answer.

More heart and soul went into these movies than LoTR.

LoTR just had a bigger budget and better technology to work with.

EDIT: LOVE the downvotes on an opinion. Keep em coming.

Not sure why people are debating source material. My opinion is the films capture more than LoTR does. I enjoyed LoTR greatly, re-read the books yearly, but IMO the movies didn't capture what the original Star Wars does for me.

More heart and soul went into Star Wars than LOTR? Maybe… I don’t agree but debatable. What isn’t debatable is Lucas borrowed from LOTR, so the soul you’re referring to is the soul of another, deeper source.

The first three chronologically had too many puppets and not enough CGI. The prequel trilogy is the greatest. Only a 9/10 in my book because they limited jar jar binks to the first movie.

The original Star Wars trilogy:

  1. One technological (for its time) masterpiece masking a pedestrian narrative (Star Wars).
  2. Greatest sci-fi film ever made (The Empire Strikes Back).
  3. Sub-par conclusion more concerned with paying fan service than telling a meaningful story (The Return of the Jedi).

So no, 1st 3 Star Wars movies aren't the greatest trilogy of all time. Hell, the whole franchise has been riding on the genius Empire coattails for decades now...

Those fucking hobbit movies were boring as hell. All it was was a bunch of people walking. Three movies of people walking to a fucking volcano. Here's yer trilogy simplified Fellowship: walking; Towers: more walking.; Return: Even more walking and finally throwing the fucking ring away. Even the fucking trees walked in those movies.

If Peter Jackson really wanted to blow me away with those Rings movies, he would have ended the third one on the logical closure point, not the 25 endings that followed - When fucking Frito wakes up from his little coma or whatever, and the little hobbits are jumping up and down on his bed, and Sam leans in the doorway and gives him that very fucking gay look. That look was so gay, I thought Sam was gonna tell the little hobbits to take a walk so he could saunter over to Frodo and suck his fucking cock. Now, that would've been an Academy Award-worthy ending. And then, right after the Sam/Frodo suckfest, right before the credits roll, Sam fucking flat out bricks in Frodo's mouth.

This is one of the few instances where you are objectively wrong.

Now you might be thinking "that's bullshit, Entertainment preference is a matter of subjective opinion". And normally you would be right. But this is actually the one exception. If you spell out The third letter of the third word of every third chapter of the Catholic Bible circa 1247 ad you will find that it spells out a phrase in Latin, which wind translated into Aramaic and then into English says "The Lord of the rings trilogy is the greatest movie trilogy that will ever exist, so says I, the LORD".

Can't really argue with that, can you?

I can because I'm not Catholic. The Lord of the Rings theatrical release trilogy is bloated and meandering, it's extended cuts dilute the original versions to torturously slow extremes, and it hides its filmmaking shortcomings behind production design and pandering to hardcore Tolkien fans. Peter Jackson is a hack, Tolkien is a shit author, and the LOTR movies suck eggs.

How is OG Star Wars not better?

Honestly I’m amazed Star Wars isn’t listed at all. I’ve scrolled like 10 top level comments and half of them are LOTR

LOTR has too much CGI. Too many long, ridiculous sword fighting scenes. They’re swashbuckling adventure movies for the most part, totally unfaithful adaptations of the book. They’re great spectacle, and good movies in their own right. Closer to Marvel movies than “top trilogy of all time” territory. Definitely not as groundbreaking, quality, or concisely executed as Star Wars.

Empire Strikes Back is one of the best films of all times and ANH basically kicked off popular sci fi as a genre

The classic Star Wars trilogy is untouchable. The prequel trilogy would be crap w/o ROTS. And the Disney stuff is Disney stuff...

It is the LOTR, and I can prove it imperically, through bullet points:

-It was an adaptation of the Second most popular fantasy book in existence

-The studio let a nobody horror-director Peter Jackson direct a big movie, No THREE big movies, no three big movies at the SAME TIME. And he was given a nearly free hand with it.

  • Due to worker strikes, just the pre-production had more time to complete than time most movies usually use to do everything

-The budget was enormous, unprecedented till then and after. Especially for an unproven IP, this wasn't a Marvel sequel, it was a "kids story", and those never made money.

-It invented and revolutionazed the industry of VFX and miniatures

-It single handidly created the New Zealand movie industry

-All the dedication of the cast. You know the stories: they slept in the woods, Viggo worn-out and repaired his own costume..

-All three movies are 99% top of thr class. Even Star Wars had a weakness there with the Ewoks

-The effects and costumes not only hold out, they are superior to most things mass-produced today. Take that George Lucas special edition #11

-Ian McKellen

-Basically inventing Motion capture, fully SGI characters, with Andy Serkis performing

-Each movie has an extended version, coming to 11.5 hours in total.

-Score

-Memes

-And most importantly: the knowledge that all the Rohan riders were Zealandian women with fake beards.

The Lord of the Rings.

I will go beyond that and say it's the perfect movie as it was filmed as such.

Peter Jackson achieved the impossible. The Lord of the Rings was well known to be an impossible to film book, and Peter had his work cut out for him. At that time he was a nobody in Hollywood, known only in the niche film genre for Dead Alive, a comedy gorefest. Taking on this project was viewed as an insurmountable task.

And yet he did it. The LOTR trilogy went on to win numerous awards and accolades and Howard Shore's soundtrack was selected by the American Film Institute as the greatest soundtrack ever composed in cinema history.
