Well there we go. Listing third entries that aren’t a part of trilogies.

I thought Lord of the Rings and Back to the Future were trilogies? Are there some further installments I’m not aware of?
And no, The Hobbit doesn’t count.

I was just taking the whole list. Of course those ones are trilogies. I was talking about the others.

If The Lost World had been a faithful adaptation of the novel, I wonder if it would’ve been an excellent film on par with the first.

Yes!

In fact, I’ll take it a step further and say BOTH should’ve been closer to the novels.

That being said, I love the original Jurassic Park as is. If I had to rank it against all the sequels, it would be the order they were released. I believe each is worse than the last.

Thought of one:
The Creature Walks Among Us - third in the Creature from the Black Lagoon trilogy. I like it, though it’s not in 3-D like the others and a little boring… still it’s better than the second one, Revenge of the Creature (IMO). At least it tries to be different.

That’s #4.
…or 5, or 1, all depending how ya look at it. Japan had a different SMB2 than the rest of the world, so there’s 2 SMB2’s. The original Japanese title is SMB4: Super Mario World. But, as it’s just SMW everywhere else, it could be considered part 1 of it’s own thing.

I’d argue Lost Levels doesn’t count cuz it’s just a glorified level pack, and SMB2 USA doesn’t count because the gameplay is radically different. That leaves 1, 3, and 4 (World in the West).

Oh, so we’re just making up our own dumb rules of reality? Ok, cool.
The Blues Brothers, prequel to Blade Runner, is possibly my favorite of that trilogy.

Yeah, it’s kind of hypocritical that he’s bashing other people for not using the definition of a “trilogy” correctly, but he just made up some arbitrary gatekeeping limit in order to have the fourth Mario game actually be the third one.

Okay, fair enough. I have no right to criticize other people’s classifications while being weird with my own. I still believe what I said, though.

I think Back to the Future III is a good one. II was never really that good, but i liked the whole tangent universe. As a concept it was cool in execution not so good. The whole revisiting the first movie within the second never really worked.I still like it though but as sequels go its kind of weak.

So many movie series where all i really need is the first film. Back to the Future is one of them, Terminator and Alien are others, and then there is Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jaws, and Jurassic Park. Also the Original Predator. And none of its sequels.
