Exclusive Cool Video: Top 10 Threequels of All Time

06.05.2015

INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 debuts in theaters today and will try to avoid the curse of the threequel. While it is hard enough to make a quality sequel, the third movie in a franchise is usually either really good or really, really bad. Leigh Whannell tries to keep up the momentum started by his friend James Wan, but can he do it?

Here is our ranking of the best threequels of all time. We tried to exclude any films that were either the second half of a second movie or a chapter in a long single story split in thirds (ahem, LORD OF THE RINGS). See if your favorite made the cut and if not, feel free to add it to the talk backs below.

INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 is now playing.

Joblo states "we excluded any film that is the 2nd half or 3rd half of a story"

and specifically references lord of the rings for that....and then chooses Lord of the Rings as number 1. LMAO WTF?!?!?

also "not many fans know that Army of Darkness is the 3rd in the evil dead series" really? lol will this retard who doesn't know this please stand up?

Also Die Hard 3 is the best die hard in the series for me (and for several people already commenting) and as stated b4, Die Hard 1 is a classic but for me, Die Hard with a vengeance is my favorite.

Nice top 10!

But you can't say Return Of The Jedi is the weakest! Why? Because of the Ewoks? On every level, if there was a weaker film in the OT it would be A New Hope. And I can't understand understand you would rate Last Crusade above Raiders... And why so much hate toward Crystal Skull? It had the weakest plot and way too much CGI but other than that it was still a mighty fine adventure film, much better than a lot of movie these days... People just love hating this film

Thank you! 2 What the worst. I might even Like Vengeance the best.

Hahaha me too! I mean the first one is a bonafide classic, but with a vengeance is one of my all time favorites. There's one or two scenes with shoddy CGI/greenscreen but other than that it's amazing. The banter, the villain, the side characters, the suspense of finding the bomb in the school, McClain being hungover the whole time, the crazy nazi bitch, I could go on and on.

in the music business they call it that difficult third album...

...the hit rate for threequels is even worse than that of sequels... diminishing returns... there are some that buck the trend but even then how many are better than the films they spawned from? The Last Crusade is great but its not quite Raiders... Jedi ain't no Empire...
Best third movie ever in my humble opinion is Toy Story 3... that film is one of a select few in my personal pantheon made up of what I consider to be practically flawless movies... its just about perfect...
