Poll Best trilogy: Spider-Man (MCU), The Hobbit or Planet of the Apes? (33 votes)

Spider-Man (MCU) 36%
The Hobbit 12%
Planet of the Apes 52%

I know Spider-Man might still get a fourth film and end up not being a trilogy, but as of right now it has three films so I'll look at it as such.

Spider-Man (MCU)

But the first 4 out of 5 original Planet of the Apes smokes them all!

@freaker: Can't agree or disagree because I only saw the first of the original but didn't all the sequels get very bad reviews?

Planet of the Apes gets me by far the most emotional.

@novaprime2: Both were great but I do take issues with Caesar dying when he could've had his wound treated in War.

@novaprime2: This might be sacrilegious to say but I actually enjoyed the first two Hobbit films more than Homecoming and Far From Home. Of the three MCU Spider-Man films, No Way Home is the only one I genuinely enjoyed and not just because of the nostalgia.

@ghostodoofus2: You're not alone in thinking that. The Hobbit films may be a far cry from the LOTR Trilogy but they're still very enjoyable imo.

Apes trilogy. Dawn and War are two of the best blockbusters of the last decade.

@krisbishop: Yeah, I believe it disappointed so many mostly because of high expectations, too many were eager for the trilogy to be on the level of LOTR. There were also production issues, Peter Jackson had tried to film without storyboards.

@kingcarcosa: I think the Planet of the Apes trilogy is comparable to the LOTR trilogy. I can understand people valuing the former more because it didn't gets its story from books.

I don't know about their reviews, but I will admit part 5 sucked. But for the rest I am a huge fan of them. What I loved the most was the chronological events that took place during them, considering no one had planned them out before filming! By the way part 4 is my favorite!

I would strongly suggest you check them out if you get a chance!

Yoooooo me too. The extended editions are particularly good. For the life of me I don’t understand the vitriol The Hobbit films get, are they unnecessarily longer than they needed to be? sure…but they have strong performances from the cast, great action and ultimately serve their purpose of connecting to Jackson’s LoTR’s films.

Fair point. They're not the worst trilogy by any means, but were massive disappointments, especially when compared to LotR. Jackson should've stuck to the source material instead of doing his own thing.

Pretty certain there was no way for him to survive that arrow wound, and I think Caesar wanted to die. At least he died peacefully knowing his people were finally safe.

@novaprime2: Oh totally, I hate how they shoehorned Legolas in and gave so much screentime to Tauriel who's also not in the book. They were originally going to make it a two-parter but studio execs got greedy and made it a trilogy to reap more money.

Damn I voted for Planet of the Apes thinking it was the Rise/Dawn/War trilogy and not the original. I change my vote to The Hobbit, those movies were bangers.

@monsterstomp: I did mean the Rise/Dawn/War trilogy, that is the only Planet of the Apes trilogy as far as I know. The old films aren't part of trilogies.

Best to worst:

  1. Spider-Man (MCU): Three fantastic movies, with great characterisation, solid comedy, an incredible sense of fun and a 3rd movie which delivers one of the best theatre experiences I've ever had.
  2. Planet of The Apes: Not a fan of the first movie, but Dawn and War are fantastic movies, with even better technical filmmaking than the Spider-Man trilogy.
  3. Hobbit: Just a terrible, boring trilogy. The 3rd one is one of the few times I've fallen asleep in a theatre.

For real. If Jackson had made the effort, stuck to the source materiel and not did his own thing, he could've had another masterpiece of a trilogy. What a shame. I can't help but wonder how the films would've turned out had del Toro not left.
