Hahaha! I've not tried watching it while "floating".
I suppose if Burton decides to make another, we could have a trilogy of Nightmare, Corpse Bride and the next one. I would be pleased.

Hahaha... indeed.
My tradition would be watch trilogy of Burton-ness, get shunned by family as they all retreat, fall asleep in front of the family and then, when I wake up, I'll already be by my prezzies! :D
That would truely be the best trilogy... ever.

I love the Godfather nearly more than anything, but I would have to say that the Matrix dominates all others...

If there are any really hardcore, and I mean hardcore Matrix fans that want to be a part of something amazing...PM me, and I'll tell you about it.

Neah I would have to say the LotR was the best trilogy of all time, though if you go by the original trilogy of Star Wars a.k.a. 4-6 then Star Wars would be the best. I'm a fairly big Star Wars buff and I won't say that the prequels, 1-3, completely sucked but they weren't that good, of the prequels Epsiode 1 was the best, gotta love Qui-Gon Jinn, the coolest Jedi of all time, second only to Ben Kenobi from the original trilogy.

I haven't the guts to vote on LotR because it was all so liked, so I voted on the next best thing, Spiderman.

Not LotR, but yes it does have a vast repertoir, but ever since LotRO came into the tracks of WoW (insider) I've had it up to here with both of them. One of them worse than the other.

But yes, Matrix is good, Spiderman is just better IMO.

I went with the Back to the Future trilogy. I mean, come on! It has a time traveling DeLorean that uses a plutonium ion generator that needs 1.21 gigawatts of power and if it goes 88 mph, you travel through time. And all this technology was acquired by LIBYIANS! Also, Doc is the best character ever made. Ever. Prove me wrong.

I thought the third pirates was awsome, what sucked about it? I went for the matrix because well it caught my attention more than any up there even though I've seen everyone.

I'm sticking to Lord of the Rings!

it's an Epic Classic.

I STILL cry when Gandalf dies.


PotC is a GREAt trilogy, but it's heavy comic element (which IS great) just makes it less of a powerful story for me.


The best thing about Resident Evil, was Jill Valentine. :P

LotR? Seriously? LotR is winning by nearly double Star Wars?

... This is a clear display of the demographics involved with this poll. LotR, in my opinion, was ph41L on a colossal level. It droned on to the point where I nearly died of mental anguish waiting for each movie to end. Driven by sheer morbid curiosity, I watched each movie in theater, hoping to God that the next would be better than the last, only to find that it became worse and worse as the story progressed.

Star Wars = Epic. The most recent three movies, Episodes I, II and III, were pretty horrible by comparison (especially the latter). The original episodes, IV, V and VI, however, were Epic Win. An intense plot with action to spare, spanning across multiple planets with obstacles at every turn. A hero who must rise to the challenge within the realistic confines of human capability. Romance, drama, humor... the Star Wars original trilogy has everything that is necessary for a truly epic series.

Indiana Jones is awesome, as well, but I don't think anything else on that list can measure up to Star Wars...

God, it's hard to choose sometimes... as someone pointed out though, JASON BOURNE WINS! Ultimately, that trilogy was just too kick-ass to be in the same league as the others.

But, if I must choose, lol; I saw the first Godfather, and it was great, but a little slow-paced for me. Star Wars is awesome, but the fan community is actually cooler than the movies sometimes(except Ewan McGregor and Liam Neeson! :3). Pirates 3 sucked, Third Matrix left me confused...

Heck yes at Indiana Jones! I <3 those movies, and I have no idea why. Out of all these, I'm gonna have to go with it.

My vote went for the Matrix. Yeah, Indiana Jones is awesome and yeah you gotta love the original Star wars trilogy, I mean Samurai in space with force powers...hell yeah.

Lord of the rings like Wiess stated nearly killed me but I hadn't seen any of them until my girl (at the time) took me to a theater showing all three in the same day. It put me in a comma for eight weeks, my heart stopped twice. I'm pretty sure we broke up because of that movie when I think about it.

Anyways, my vote had to go for the Matrix. I love that movie and for some reason the fact that I have to argue with damn near everyone about its glory only makes me love it more. Come on now, the story wasn’t that hard to understand. Besides it has friggin’ Keanu Reeves who manages to play all three movies while only displaying one of three emotions which are anger, confusion or neutral. That takes the kind of skill and determination Schwarzenegger had in the terminator movies. My love for the Matrix is as pure as newly fallen snow but the Matrix understands me and let’s me see other movies with out getting jealous.

LotR seems like the type of move that doesn’t care what you do because LotR doesn’t care about you, doesn’t need you and just uses you.

The first X-Men movie was awesome.....the second was....good entertainment..... the Third....well, I think that for real comic fans...the Third movie just went too far astray from the concepts of X-Men continuity..... plus....as hot as she may be, Famke Janssen is simply getting a bit too old to be Jean Grey. They should have made the X-Men movies about 5 years earlier.... if they were going to cast Famke as Jean Grey. The casting was spot on though...just a little too late. Plus, the plotlines in the Third movie didn't hold together as well as they should have.

The casting was all-around pretty good. A lot of people I know complained about wolverine since he's suppose to be like 5'6 or something (so I'm told) but I thought Beast couldn't have been cast any better. Although, I was too busy laughing to enjoy any of his on-screen moments.

The only two characters I care about in the entire x-men universe is Nightcrawler and Gambit. They put Nightcrawler in and I was happy with thatm, but no Gambit.

They could have just done a brief scene that opens with Logan playing poker in a shady bar and one of the guys just says something about not messing with the cajun and then walks away, didn't even have to show him and I would have been happy. Just hearing the accent, even if over a phone call and I'd of been set.

Other than that, I've never been much of a Marvel fan to begin with so aside from Spider-man I had no interest in any of these 'super' movies.

Now something along the lines of another Spawn movie or anything from Image/topcow and I'll be first in line.

Indiana Jones isn't a tril anymore...\

Someone probably already mentioned that.

But I can't vote 'cause I think the BESTTrilogy ever is Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles.

I esspecially love the second one

Granted I loved the whole Vanilla Ice 'Ninja Rap' but the second two movies just weren't up to Par with the amazing awesome of the first.

I worked at hollywood video for about seven month's and since we were only allowed to play kids movies on the tv's I watched the first one about two or thre times a day.

"Go, Ninja! Go, Ninja! Go!" combined with not as interesting of a story line just didn't quite cut it for me. Mean while the first one still sits among my favorite movies of all time.

[Edit:] Needless to say I do have Vanilla Ice - Ninja Rap downloaded to my laptop.

Hm. That's a tough choice, but Star Wars (the Original Trilogy) is, without a doubt, one of the most fantastic pieces of work ever created for entertainment. There's enough action in there to blow your socks off. The movies run at an exciting pace while still allowing the viewers to gaze at the wonderous, diverse worlds, characters, and elements that Lucas weaved. All told, Star Wars is the epitome of Science Fiction, and there are few later works that didn't borrow something from this fantastic trilogy. The romance wasn't corny. The humor was great for changing the mood where needed. Another key factor were the movies' dramatic sequences: if the Han/Carbonite scene didn't send you to the edge of your seat, I don't know what will.

I shouldn't even have to mention why the new movies don't count; I simply enjoyed the action sequences and that's all.

A couple honorable mentions, though: Indiana Jones for its highly-entertaining pace of action and Lucas' creative use of Jones' encounters and adventures. It's been awhile since I saw the movies, however, so that's about all I can say for now.

I also include the LotR Trilogy (which, might I add, I was happy to see that Tom Bombadil's sequences weren't included); while the humor was often questionable or simply a little unfaithful to the books, the fighting sequences were epic and the actors played their roles well. Again, this is yet another milestone (well, at least the books) for the Fantasy realm of works; Tolkien had quite the imaginative mind to detail such a rich, immense world, and the plot fit in well. The only other thing I didn't really like all too well were some of the drawn-out sequences, but it didn't bother me as much as it could have. [Shrugs.]

Lol, u can tell from the results how geeky this site really is :P
The character I play is not the real me. The same goes for everyone. Don't let character interactions cloud your judgement of someone. The characters are not the same as the real people behind them.
