It's Movie Trilogy Season

Finally! We have cold and snow approaching. It appears Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day will sport a high of 17 and low of -5 Fahrenheit. We may roll out of bed early Thursday morning to minus 11. That's cold enough to officially begin movie trilogy (or greater) season. Snowcatcher and I do not watch television and do not subscribe to a tv plan. However, we still have a television screen and dvd players. But before I list favorite trilogies, here are two recent non-trilogy movies I've enjoyed – Martian and Interstellar. I recommend both.

As mentioned in previous posts, I'm a big Clint Eastwood fan. A movie I found myself watching several times over the past year was 1968's Where Eagles Dare. This action classic takes us behind WWII enemy lines with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood. It's a fun, action-packed movie.

During the Christmas season, I also pull out a short but good video featuring portions of a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert. I guess you could call it a rock opera. If you like electric guitars, a classical string and wind section and classic Christmas music, I bet you'll like it. Better yet, attend a live concert of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Their concerts are energy-packed and nothing short of awesome.

I think most of us have seen some, if not all of these films; I'm not going to do a write-up or review. I'm just listing a handful of fun films. Therefor, in no particular order, let's start with a trilogy of which I never tire...
