Director M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” releases to theaters this week, marking the conclusion of the trilogy which began with “Unbreakable” in 2000 and continued with 2016’s “Split.”
With another trilogy set to be wrapped up soon, I figured it was a good time to take a look at some of my favorite three-movie franchises. Small disclaimer, film is subjective and art can be difficult to quantify in numbers and data. With that in mind, this top 10 is more a way to organize these trilogies and less a matter of fact.

The new year is here and with 2018 wrapped up, it’s time to take a look back at the best filmmakers had to offer the last 12 months.
Before getting into my top 10, though, here are some honorable mentions that didn’t make the cut.

Like all years, Hollywood gives audiences movies that are good, OK and just downright bad. Here’s my take on the latter for the past year.
First up, here are few that didn’t make the cut:
- Fantastic Beasts Crimes of Grindelwald
- Super Troopers 2
- The Nun
- Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom

The fifth film in the “Jurassic” series is right around the corner, with the follow-up to the 2015 picture set for release this weekend.
While it doesn’t include as many entries as some of the other film series out there, with other franchises having released more than 10, it’s still made some major impacts in the industry. For example, “Jurassic Park” is still regarded as one of the best blockbusters of all time and “Jurassic World” smashed the box office.
With that in mind, I figured I could take a look back at the “Jurassic” films and rank them, even if the list will be fairly predictable. Just a note, the list will be from worst to best.

It’s the weekend of Han Solo! Tomorrow (or tonight if you’re seeing the early screenings), “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will hit theaters with Alden Ehrenreich portraying a younger version of the iconic character.
As interesting as that film should be, though, this also seems like a good opportunity to take a look back on some of the best scenes with Solo, as portrayed by Harrison Ford.

Considering that “Avengers: Infinity War” is not only the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe, but could change the series’ landscape going forward, now seems like a good time to do a full retrospective on the franchise and rank all of the movies that have been released since 2008. Now, keep in mind for this section, the films are ranked relatively. I didn’t find any of these films hard to sit through, just not as enjoyable as others.

So this list, to help celebrate the upcoming film “Avengers: Infinity War,” will be a bit less formal. I just wanted to give credit to some of the awesome weapons featured in this film series, and again this will be from “worst to best.” However, I’m sticking with just a few and the rankings don’t mean too terribly much.
With that said, here’s the list.

So, I’m starting a special series of rankings this month to celebrate the release of “Avengers: Infinity War.” Originally, the film was supposed to open in early May, right around my birthday in fact. Alas, the studio opted to change the date to April 27.

The first 2017 film I saw was “Resident Evil: Final Chapter” and it turned out to be the worst of the year, so it was all uphill from there. Looking back, it ended up being a solid year at the cinema and now that I’ve seen all the relevant movies, it’s time for my top 10 of 2017.
