Top 10 Third Installments that are the Best of Their Movie Series


The Top Ten

1 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

And when you thought things couldn't get better than The Two Towers. - PeeledBanana

2 War for the Planet of the Apes

When will the Academy ever give Andy Serkis his oscar? - PeeledBanana

3 Toy Story 3

Best of the Toy Story trilogy. It has the best villain of the three movies, had better animation than the other two, and had the best plot. - PeeledBanana

Am I the only one who didn't like it? - LarkwingFlight

4 Captain America: Civil War

Most anticipated movie of 2016 didn't disappoint me.' - PeeledBanana

The Winter Soldier is better.

I found that movie great too but I wouldn't say it's better than Civil War. - PeeledBanana

5 Logan

The first Wolverine movie sucked, the second was good, but this is the best X-Men film ever. - PeeledBanana

6 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Arguably the greatest western of all time. - PeeledBanana

7 Goldfinger

Not the best James Bond movie as a whole but it's the best James Bond movie that starred Sean Connery. - PeeledBanana

8 Avengers: Infinity War
9 Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

The third installment of the Heisei Godzilla films is one of the best movies out there. This should be higher! - asantalo

10 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

OK, before anyone misunderstands this, I'm not saying it's the best Star Wars film in the whole franchise, I'm just saying it's the best of the prequel trilogy, I consider them to be two seperate series' in one huge franchise. - PeeledBanana

The Contenders

11 Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

no - PeeledBanana

Yes - darthvadern

12 Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

Some people like to argue that Madagascar 1 is better, I disagree - PeeledBanana

13 The Bourne Ultimatum

I've actually never watched this, this is just a filler. - PeeledBanana

14 Cars 3


Actually hell yeah, first movie was okay but nothing from the other world, seconds one was pretty lame, this one is probably the best from the three (which isn't saying nothing because this franchise isn't even great) - Pato_cargo

15 Thor: Ragnarok
16 Final Destination 3
