WHAT IS THE GREATEST MOVIE SERIES EVER?

With the last Harry Potter movie due out this week I started thinking of what movie series is the greatest of all time….

Now there are many to choose from…..I guess the first movie series I remember is the Planet Of The Apes….and like many movie series it started out great and sorta got stupid as we got to #’s 3, 4,……

Most series have flaws….the first movie is usually the best one….and then as they (those making the movies) try to squeeze every drop of blood out of the turnip they begin to get…..dumb and dumberer…..

You have the biggies…..Star Wars….Indiana Jones….Lord Of The Rings…..Harry Potter….

And then there are those that make up the next tier…..Ghostbusters….The Matrix….Back To The Future….Star Trek….Shrek….Dirty Harry….The Godfather….

We’ll wait ’till Halloween to tackle the horror movies….

I have mixed feelings….

The Originial 3 Star Wars movies are probably three of my favorite movies of all time…..but…..when #4 came along (actually #1) it was a disappointment…..the pod race was pretty cool but…..Jar-Jar Binks and little blonde Darth Vader….kinda tended to ruin the amazing trilogy that George Lucas created in the 70’s & 80’s….movies #5 (actually #2) and #6 (actually #3) brought back some of that original magic…not all of it…..no way that could have happened…. 

Indiana Jones….well….#1 was great….#3 was very good……but…#’s 2 & 4….weren’t so hot….

Harry Potter….I did read all the books…and the movies have stayed pretty true to those books….and I think they’ve all been pretty good movies….the first few kinda got lost in the fact that the three lead actors weren’t very good…..but as time had gone by and they have gotten older….they have gotten better….

Now we come to the Lord Of The Rings…..and I guess I would have to say…..from start to finish….this to me….is the best of the best…I never did get through the three books, but I read enough of the first one to know that the movies sorta went their own merry way to tell the story of Frodo and Sam….but the first movie was great….the second great…..and the third was just as good as #’s 1 & 2….

So, what do you think????
