Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King has officially hit the stores this week (I bought the first copy at my local Borders yesterday). Trilogies have been popular in the movies for years. This week we look at questions based on some famous cinematic triumvarites:

1) The Back to the Future Trilogy sent Marty McFly 30 years into the future, 30 years into the past (twice!) and 100 years into the past. Which of these time periods would you like to visit in your 1.21 gigawatt-powered DeLorean, and why?
Hmmm… I couldn’t decide plus or minus 30… But I didn’t really like the future there. The past is more of a certainty and other than the threat of world war (which I would know wouldn’t happen) seemed to be a pretty good time.
2) The Lord of the Rings Trilogy was, of course, based on a famous trio of novels by JRR Tolkien. What sci-fi/fantasy/genre novels or series would you like to see turned into a Peter-Jackson-directed/George-Lucas-written/Steven-Speilberg-produced trilogy?
A few. Narnia, The Book of Three (which someone did as a cartoon called the Black Cauldren (book 2)), a good alien invader (invaders on long stilts) one I read as a kid (I’ll think on the title), To Your Scattered Bodies Go (that might make a better series). But my number one choice would be The Wizardry Series (on book seven) by Diane Duane, book one was So You Want To Be A Wizard?. Two kids becoming wizards, discovering the world is a live, great power always at a cost and some physics behind the magic (a little more to it than just casting spells at random that sometimes work and other times do).
3) Next summer, there will be two complete Star Wars trilogies in the history books. What’s your strangest or most interesting Star Wars experience?
We used to cut class to see the movies on opening day. What a bunch of wacky people that come out of the woodwork. I just remember being in the first row for one of them (the 2nd one, I mean the 5th one) and having the great view and all the other geeked out fans that were there… It was a blast.
Bonus) While the Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones movies are currently only trilogies, plans are in the works for a fourth movie in both series. What trilogy might’ve been better served with a fourth movie? Which trilogy would’ve been better if they had left it at only one movie?
They could just delete that second Indiana Jones movie… They should have stopped with Jurassic Park already. They keep having rumors of another Superman movie, I’d like that. Another Batman movie (with Michael Keaton would be great too).
