With the release of “Twilight: Eclipse” this week and “Toy Story 3” a couple weeks ago, it is time to brave another Top 10 list of sequelic (I just made a word up!) proportions. I think most people would agree that by the time a film series or franchise gets to number three, it’s usually out of ideas.
The struggle for this list (which was not nearly as Herculean as the Top Fourth Movies in a Franchise list from last year) was disqualifying all of the great movies that didn’t quite fit the rules of being “third in a series,” as narrowly defined by the fact that it must have the same main characters, more or less.
So you get your Top 10 for sure, but this time instead of just listing the ones that were disqualified, I wrote about them too. Enjoy the Top 10 Third Movies in a Franchise list.
