I detailed my No.1 trilogy decision in my last post, so here’s my “blink” all-time trilogy rankings:
2. The Man With No Name trilogy — Blondie, Joe, “The Man With No Name” … from “A Fistful of Dollars” through “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” Sergio Leone’s trilogy with Clint Eastwood ranks right up there amongst all-time great Westerns (even if none match “Once Upon A Time in The West”).
3. Indiana Jones (first three) — The final installment lacks so much compared to “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” but it makes up for it with Sean Connery quips.
4. The Godfather — legitimate shot at No.1 if not for its dud of a third film.
5. Star Wars (final three (first-produced)) — a victim of its era in special effects.
6. Back To The Future — Quotable gem w/ Huey Lewis’ finest hour.
7. The Naked Gun — Sure, you need a goofy sense of humour… but I have that.
8. X-Men — Yep. Second one’s the best.
9. Mighty Ducks — I apologize for being a hockey fan who grew up alongside Charlie Conway. “Good game, Captain Duck.”
10. The Matrix — if only for the visuals, it’d be Top Ten.
