    Cherry

    ★★

    This reminded me of a college student who goes to his first party, realizes he doesn't have to worry about his parents, goes crazy, then wakes up the morning after swearing he had the best night.

Each installment is great on their own, but put it all together and it creates this wonderful three-part story with. And the third ends it all with great respect and emotion. The only other trilogy I can think of that is consistently great is the "Before ..." series, but I grew up with Toy Story so I have to give it the top spot.
