1) Lord of the Rings
Something about Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings filmography and "magical" goes hand in hand. Perhaps it's the beloved Frodo, the split personality of Sméagol/Gollum, the battle of the wizards, or the obsession with the ring and its powers. There's much to discover and mull in this trilogy of battle and adventure that's rich with allegory and visual masterpiece.
2) The Matrix
Another one with spoonfuls of conceptual symbolism and philosophy, the Matrix series! The fourth Matrix is in the making, and the announcement for a 2021 release was made. (So technically, as of yet, we'll consider this one a trilogy for now.)
Action-packed science fiction with an amazing story line, the war against the Machine seems to keep going. How will it end? When will it end? Grab your popcorn and prepare for some of the best fighting scenes ever.
3) The Godfather
A mafia film classic, The Godfather trilogy will surely deliver your fix for the Italian mobster thriller. Populated with some of the most familiar faces in Hollywood cinema, this organized-crime narrative is definitely a star-studded gem of American film.
4) Chronicles of Narnia
A set of novels written by author C. S. Lewis (1898–1963) for juniors, this fantasy series turned movie is far from 'just for kids'.
Filled with the splendor of adventure after adventure, the three movies in the trilogy are: The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Curl up with your favorite and blanket and get ready for a wondrous journey!
5) Back to the Future
This is a fantastic light-hearted and fun narrative that remains in the soul of the American 80s and beyond. Just an easy, (not-so) smooth ride on the space-time continuum with Marty and his friends!
The hardest part will be choosing which part is your favorite, Part I, II, or III? (How about peering into Part II and the movie's projected imaginations of what the future will be like, and actually seeing how things have come true as predicted?)
