Because It’s Friday: The Trilogy Meter

Posted to Miscellaneous  |  Nathan Yau

Dan Meth plots out the trilogy meter – a series of charts that show his level of enjoyment of each movie in the trilogy:

These are rated purely on my enjoyment level on each film and nothing else. Frankly I’m surprised by how many sequels were better than the original. And I’m not surprised that the 3rd movie is never the best.

Perhaps more surprising is that Dan’s actually seen so many full trilogies, especially after the second in a series sucking so bad.
