Top Ten Movie Franchises

Ever watch a movie and couldn't wait for the sequel? Here is my top 10 movie franchises.

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars

Such an iconic movie saga, the OT is probably the most famous trilogy to ever exist and I'm pretty sure everyone has watched at least one Star Wars film in their life. You probably life under a rock if you've never heard of Star Wars. It is truly iconic, from its films to its characters to scenes to score to planets to quotes ("No, I am your father") And I would say that Star Wars (1977, Episode 4 A new hope) is probably one of the most iconic films of all time and one of the best along with Empire. Yeah the prequels were a let down but The Force Awakens is the biggest movie of all time and this again will, even though created in the 70s, still hold up to our everyday lives like no other before, just check out the success of it - movies, T.V. shows, merchandising, I've never met a person to say Star Wars is bad and that they hate it (excluding those who have only seen the prequels, I recommend to watch the OT first) and celebrities love it, just who doesn't love the BEST film saga to ...more

With the exception of Episodes 1 & 2 Star Wars is the greatest movie franchise of all time with its brilliant story and memorable characters. - egnomac

New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones & Revenge of the Sith - Shakester

Star Wars worst to best(MY opinion):
7: The Force Awakens
6: Attack Of The Clones
5: The Phantom Menace
4: Revenge Of The Sith
3: Return Of The Jedi
2: A New Hope
1: The Empire Strikes Back(duh) - robertoiglesias271

2 The Lord of the Rings

One of the few franchises where the movies are just as good as the books. The Harry Potter movies left out so many important plot points (partially because some idiot thought it would be a good idea to make movies before all the books were out), has some painful special effects in the earlier movies, and started the annoying trend of splitting the last book into two movies. Back to Lord of the Rings, the books are just brilliant and so full of detail, and the movies manage to translate this pretty well.

Three of the best movies that have ever been given to mankind. A great introduction to the story, a fantastic journey story, and a satisfying, tear jerking conclusion

The whole Middle-Earth saga is the best film series ever. - DesL42

Return of king: 9/10 two towers: 6/10 fellowship of ring :8/10 hobbit series: 7/10

3 Harry Potter

This series should be at the top. Despite the last few movies' being sorta disappointments, this series is the t has got everything you face in life!

Disappointments? Deathly Hallows part 2 was the best one though. - PeeledBanana

Harry potter is a great series trough the life of a boy forced down a hard path which his friends agree to go with him on

Why is this franchise on here, it's not suppost to be on here cents it's one of the worst frachises ever, I hate Harry Potter because it ripped off home alone, my favorite Christmas movie. It is a disgrace to Warner brothers. It has butt humor, toilet humor, too many bad language, twerking, poop, killing, violence, and others. I can't believe Harry Potter is for kids, the books are for kids. But the movies are even worse than the books, and why did it get a spinoff! I hope that's gets canceled too. That should have never happened. Because I just wanted it to stay canceled. Not go on forever. I remember from the very first movie where Harry Potter got a Christmas present, and then he twerked. That is such a bad idea. It's even innaproperate than breaking bad. I also can't believe my boy boy the dvd's for me when I didn't ask for them. But think God I gave them away. I'm glad I don't haft to deal with it anymore. I've not had any of the Lego sets which I'm never getting any of them.

Star Wars at number 1? LOL everyone with a clear mind knows that either Harry Potter or The Lord of the Rings belongs at the top.

You probably haven't seen a single Star Wars movie, because if you did, you would know why it's truly number one. - PeeledBanana

5 Marvel Cinematic Universe

Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel's The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War Part I, Captain Marvel, Inhumans, Avengers: Infinity War Part II.

11 billion at the box office in total movies while second place Star Wars is 7 billion

The best one by far - Triceratops

The MCU is the very first movie universe a model of releasing movies everyone wants to do now. Each individual movie is a story of its own even though #itsallconnected. The MCU has perfect castings in their major roles (especially RDJ as Iron Man) and not a single movie was received badly.

The Person Who Put This Here Needs To Get A Life

Twilight is absolutely DISGUSTING.

Twilight highre than X-Men, Mission: Impossible, The Hunger Games? Dafog? - DesL42

19 The Fast and the Furious

Favorite franchise will end with 9 movies

Things Really Got Good When The 5th Movie Came Out

The Fast and The Furious,2Fast2Furious, The Fast and The Furious Tokyo Drift, Fast and Furious and Fast Five - jared5

20 Star Trek

The original franchise went on way too long,and the reboot was actually pretty good. IT HAD SOME GOOD TIMES, ( 2: the wrath of khan, 2007 remake, into darkness, III: the search for spock, VII the journey home, First contact, beyond.) AND SOME BAD. (nemesis, final frontier, IV.)

My dad loves Star Trek, so do I. My favorite character, is Spock. Here's the intire cast, William shatner (1931-) Leonard nimoy (1931-2015) deforest Kelley (1920-1999) James doohan (1920-2005) Nichelle Nichols (1932-) George takei (1937-) Walter Koenig (1936-) I still miss Leonard nimoy deforest Kelley and James doohan. One had emphysema, one had stomach cancer, and one had pneumonia. That is sad. But it's still a good cast.
