It Was The 3rd "Trilogy Saturday" at Our House Today
I decided a few months ago we needed to view all the “big” trilogies in film since Star Wars, one a month, on every third Saturday (I think it was my way of making the end of summer keep moving for me). Today was the Bourne Trilogy: The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum. It was a blast, as these are three really great films to watch, especially all at once.
We started a few months ago. Here’s the menu we’ve been following:
Aug: The Matrix Trilogy. If a trilogy ever tanked faster, you find it and tell me. Such a great start, such a great tank. A perfect way to start.
Sept: The Pirates of the Carribean Trilogy. SO much fun, but it sort of starts to heave under its own hubris.
Oct: The Bourne Trilogy. Rocks, rocks, rocks. Really, one of the top trilogies in film.
Nov: The Star Wars Trilogy. Yes, the first three films, not the second three toy commercials.
Dec: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. This had to go here, as this is our annual Xmas-day thing. We sit down and watch about nine hours of Middle Earth, every Xmas day. It’s a brilliant way to spend the holiday, especially when it includes a coffee table laden with picnic foods and wine.
