Who beats that? Coen Bris? Kubrick?
These 3 in a row.
Bridge on the River Kwai
Lawrence of Arabia
Is a better 3
Off the top of my head quickly
The first Tarantino trio is quite a 3 Peat.
2001 A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
From the era I've been watching, I'd pick:
O'Brother Where Art Thou
The Last of the Mohicans
Road to Perdition
Howls Moving Castle
The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad
The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear
The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult
Hitchcock - The winner
Dial M for Murder
To Catch a Thief
North by Northwest
The Russo Brothers have a great run of 4 films:
- Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier
- Captain America 3: Civil War
- Avengers 3: Infinity War
- Avengers 4: Endgame
I'm not a movie auteur, but for pure entertainment value :
Jaws, Close Encounters, 1941, Raiders
He might have been a lock if not for 1941.
Also had Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, JP : Lost World
The Fog, Escape from New York, The Thing
Terminator, Aliens, Abyss
T2, True Lies, Titanic (this is tough to beat)
Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Ocean's Eleven
Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers
Lord of the Rings Trilogy I-III
1989 Do the Right Thing
1990 Mo' Better Blues
1991 Jungle Fever
1992 Malcolm X
1991 Boyz n the Hood
1993 Poetic Justice
1995 Higher Learning
Abyss and True Lies were pretty mediocre.
The other movies are great of course.
Agree with the Coen Bros add. The rest all include at least 1 that wasn't in the class of the others... imo.
I forgot all about Hitchcock.
I've been watching mostly older movies lately. Looking over the directors, Billy Wilder has a "hat trick" worth mentioning:
The Major and the Minor 1942
Five Graves to Cairo 1943
Double Indemnity 1944
Sunset Blvd 1950
Ace in the Hole 1951
Stalag 17 1953
Witness for the Prosecution 1957
Some Like it Hot 1959
The Apartment 1960
One interesting twist - generally speaking the three movies in each group are completely different styles.
The Dark Knight
