Remember, the rebel base on Yavin had 15 X-wings and 15 Y-wings stationed there... That's it. It was a huge victory for a small group. They won a battle, not the war.

You need to watch a bunch of Monogram and Republic serials.

Whole freakin' battles took place between episodes sometimes.

People really hating on the Lord of The Rings trilogy? Lord of The Rings might be the greatest trilogy ever in fantasy/sci-fi films.

I nearly died having to wait a year to watch each of the sequels. Studios should take lessons from Lord of The Rings. Unfortunately the Hobbit films turned out not so great.

Guilty I'm afraid. As with Empire Strikes Back they don't as standalone movies, no beginning middle and end.

The greatest trilogy ever in fantasy/sci-fi? That's not the toughest competition in the world.

Don't get me wrong. I love Fellowship of the Rings. And I love Return of the King (though that's the one that really should have been cut into two movies). Two Towers bores me to death.

I'd have to go with Star Wars as the greatest trilogy ever in fantasy/sci-fi. But it's really between those two. What else is there? The Matrix?

But they aren't standalone movies, so the discussion is irrelevant.

Yet they were released as standalone movies and you had to pay to watch them as standalone movies.

And if the first one completely bombs you don't see the next 2. So they were standalone movies.

I wouldn't consider that a trilogy. It's three moves (nananananana I can't hear you Kingdom of the Crystal Skull nananananaan) that have the same characters, but I'd call it a series of sequels and not a trilogy.

Yes, they are stand alone movies in the sense that they all came out separately in the theater, but unlike the Indiana Jones movies which were mentioned, you can't really watch Empire or Jedi without knowing what happened before.

Though that makes me think, I would also put Star Trek 2, 3, & 4 up as a trilogy.
