Question of the week: can you name a trilogy that improved with each entry?

As you may have noticed from yesterday's review, I really rather enjoyed Captain America: Civil War. In fact, I declared it the best MCU movie so far. 

Of course, Captain America: Winter Soldier was my favourite before that, which set me thinking. Each Captain America movie has been better than its predecessor, which is almost unheard of in a trilogy. We can all think of a trilogy that has got worse with each new movie (eg The Matrix, Look Who's Talking), that's got better for its second outing before producing a disappointing conclusion (eg The GodfatherStar Wars, Star Trek) or that had worse sequel before improving for the final outing (eg Back To The Future, Ocean's Eleven, Three Colours).

But I couldn't think of any other trilogy where each new movie was better than the one before it. Can you?
