10. The 'Before' Trilogy
Films: "Before Sunrise" (1995), "Before Sunset" (2004), "Before Midnight" (2013)
Director: Richard Linklater
Best of the Bunch: "Before Sunrise" is what made you fall in love -- with the trilogy, with the duo, with the concept -- to begin with.
Weakest Link: Calling any of the three "weak" is practically demeaning, when all three have a 95% or more on Rotten Tomatoes and each has an enuring theme about the fractured tendencies of love. (But, OK then, fine, "Before Sunset.")
Why It's a Great Trilogy: Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke are invested to the drama and simplicity of this romantic journey, which starts with the meet-cute and ends with the heartaching realities of marriage, fantasy, careers and children.
