Take a look at Dan Meth’s Trilogy Meter, a quick way to see what he thinks of individual films inside famous trilogy features. Some of the films went on to span more than 3 movies, but he focuses on the original set of 3 that each were intended for.

I agree that the third movie in trilogies often suck, but I’m glad to see that he and I think the same of the totally awesome Lord of the Rings trilogy! And The Matrix…yeah. Spot on there.
