Phil’s Top 5… Three-quels

Phil’s Top 5… Three-quels

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Three-quels!

 

Close but no cigar: Die Hard With A Vengeance, Mission Impossible 3,Back To The Future Part 3, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of Azkaban, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King

 

5 – Army Of Darkness
Army of Darkness is amazing.  It’s camp, silly, funny… it was and still is everything I wanted from a sequel to Evil Dead 2!

 

4 – Star Wars VI:  Return of The Jedi
Yes it has Ewoks.  But it also has great plot twists, epic space battles and a note perfect conclusion to one of the best trilogies of all time.

 

3 – The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
Most people forget this was part of a trilogy but the man with no name rode out one last time in what is the bets of the series for many.

 

2 – Goldfinger
Still seen as the quintessential Bond film by many, Goldfinger set the bar and the format for all Bond films that followed.  Connery defines cool.  

 

1 – Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3 made me cry on several occasions.  It’s a charming, heart breaking and emotionally strong film that deserves it’s place here as the best threequel of all time.
