Top 10 Best Movie Series
The Top Ten
Being born in the mid 90s and growing up watching the Star Wars movies as a kid starting with Episode I in the theaters has truly been an amazing experience over the years. I know people talk trash about the prequels for their poor CGI, Jar Jar's annoyance, and Hayden Christensen's acting, but you have to see past that and enjoy the movies for what they're actually presenting. Episode III is one of my favorite movies of all time, as it literally wraps up the entire prequel trilogy and explains why everything in 4, 5, and 6 happened at all. It also featured the most Jedi action/fighting, so you get to witness their potential at its peak all before coming to an end when *spoiler alert* Anakin and the clone army slaughter everyone. I also believe the soundtrack for the prequel trilogy was the best. The newest trilogy wasn't as good and I feel it was just constantly poking at nostalgia, especially by bringing Palpatine back from the dead. I know they said this would be the last trilogy, ...more
This was the first film series I fanboyed with. I mean guys with laser swords fighting masked baddies with a superweapon sounds appleasing right? The original triology, while having very aged effects had epic battles combined with some pretty deep themes. It was action packed but not to brutal enough to applease both children and adults
The first 2 prequels were mediocre, but revenge of the sith was a great film. And then came disney. Of course they must mess everything up so they added the decent Force awakens before going to the horrid rouge one and the even worse Last Jedi. Solo was better than LJ but still bad and then the finale (Rise of Skywalker) came which was a abomination. Seriously, the only good thing that came out post 2015 was the Mandelorian and even that’s a TV show spinoff series, not a mainstream movie. Not to mention they ditched the Expanded Universe and replaced it with the sequel crap. After watching Last Jedi I lost hope in Star Wars. It is still one of ...more
I'm a boring old 11 year old girl living in a boring old (english) village, but STAR WARS MAKES MY LIFE. All I live for is this epic space saga, with aliens, lightsabers, cute ports and captivating droids. It makes me dance around the living room I love it so much. The originals, sequels, prequels and spin offs are all sooo good, all of them. All I can say is love it like I do and u will b so happy. Yes, jar jar wasn't great, CGI was pretty bad, but seriously, put gem aside and c this amazing series of fuzzballs laughing it up. Wow. Perfect
Despite being born in the early 2000s, Star Wars is one of the best film series that I have every watched. It is so captivating. From the battles, the lightsaber and you can't forget the amazing characters. I have watched many films over the years and star wars is the only set of movies that I enjoy rewatching. I 10/10 recommend that anyone at any age takes the time to watch these movies.
The Harry Potter movie series is a masterpiece. However, I think people rate it higher than they would normally because they remember the book series being great too. Both the books and the movies are good but it is not the best in either category. Star Wars is better in the movie category for example, and The Dark Tower series by Stephen King is by far the better work of literature compared to the Harry Potter books. Harry Potter is great, but it is overrated.
I voted Harry Potter because the first 4 films were really well done. The fifth sixth and seventh film were not so good but the storyline from the books is one of the best in the world. David Yates direction for the films took it below its potential and for that I cannot say it is the best movie series but it is better than Star Wars which bores me to tears. The Dark Knight is definitely the best though.
Harry potter is number 1 for a reason. The fact that it is a global sensation and people want to be apart of it is saying something. A book series turned into a movie with its own theme park in one of Americas most famous theme parks is saying something. The thoughts and beliefs within the potter series will stay in your heads forever and it also confronts controversial issues like racism (Draco saying mud blood so on... ) this gives this film a unique edge.
Children, teens, adult, parents and even grandparents all enjoy this film despite there age. The film allows you to be apart of their world and them to be apart of yours.
And that's why harry potter is the best.
I'm sorry, but I enjoyed Star Wars much better. Harry Potter was good, believe me. The books were and still are my favourites, and the movies had a lot of potential, but the characters were lacking. Over 7 movies, you would have thought that Ron would stop being such a comic relief and actually have a character arc like in the books, but no. You would have thought that maybe Hermione wouldn't get that many lines and would stop being so Emma and actually have the correct hair and teeth, but no. You would have thought that Harry would stop being so dramatic, but no. And Stephen King said that about the books, not the movies. Get your facts right.
* In terms of QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY, the Lord of the Rings saga and Godfather trilogy deserve to top this list.
* Yes Harry Potter is more successful than LOTR commercially, but seriously, it's no where near as well made. Don't get me wrong, the movies are entertaining and I always go to the theater to watch them, but every movie in the series has had some gaping flaw, either in plot, direction, acting, whatever. In Lord of the Rings, yes there were thematic and plot differences, but Jackson and team managed to produce an adaptation that was still top-notch in every category.
* Star Wars may deserve to rank higher due to the brilliance of the Original Trilogy (especially Ep. V) and the sheer impact it left on society, but even then, the newer films (especially Ep. I and II) were lacking in quality. In LOTR, the films were all just great. They weren't just entertaining fantasy pictures, but sincerely first-rate motion pictures
I totally think Lord of the Rings should be number 1. Lord of the Rings is absolutely one of the best movie series of all time. There is an unbeatable cast of characters in these movies that if it were changed these movies would not be the same. They are some of my favorite movies of all time, and some of the best-selling movies of all time. This is a fantastic series.
One of my favorite aspects is the costumes. I can't get over how amazing the costumes were. THe special effects were incredible as well. Thank you Peter Jackson and crew as well as all the fantastic authors for making such an amazing movie series.
Lord of the rings is the best of all time why well for me I grow up with The Lord of the rings. The story of The Lord of the rings is well told and no matter how many times I see it I all ways get goosebumps. Harry potter is an okay series but its not a series I would love or like there's no parts in the Harry potter movies that are cool and heroic as The Lord of the rings for me Harry potter is crap if you tell any one that you like or talk about it they just not care or just not want to be around you as for The Lord of the rings if you tell some one about like in the two towers when the wall blow up people are going to want to see more and buy the movies. Star wars is a good series but just not as good as The Lord of the rings
There are no words for how great the Lord of the Rings is. Let me just point out a few things. First of all, the first Lord of the Rings movie and the first Harry Potter movie were filmed in the same year, yet the quality of that Harry Potter movie is so much worse than the Fellowship of the Ring. Also, there is no competing with Lord of the Rings, whether in quality, characters, cast, plot, or action. And it's obvious that Harry Potter was influenced by LOTR. Here are some examples. Both have a dark lord, a wise old wizard, an orphaned main protagonist (though it's only mentioned briefly that Frodo's parents are dead). Not to mention the angry willow trees. Fans of the LOTR books will know that in the first book, Merry and Pippin are attacked by the Old Man Willow, only to then be saved by Tom Bombadil. In Harry Potter, there is the infamous Whomping Willow, who tries to kill Harry, Ron, and Hermione on multiple occasions. All in all, I will forever believe that Lord of the Rings is ...more
Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises are overrated, with piss poor villains and terrible writing choices.
The Dark Knight is good, although the first act could be shorter.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is too shallow, Harry Potter not that much of a delighy, Terminator series downed by the mindless string of sequels, and Star Wars... Has lost its shine and the power to captivate. The Dark Knight Trilogy on the other hand, is an epic saga of massive proportions. The final part may definitely be the weakest, but is well above the common summer blockbuster. The Dark Knight Trilogy must rule this list.
It's batman like we've never seen him before. Not only is he a superhero, but a deeply flawed one, with his own inner demons, struggles and battles which make's the story line so much more intriguing. Not to talk about all the other characters with there own rich stories. Heath Ledger rocked as joker. Superb franchise.
Why is this number 43 on the list? This is one of the best movies from the critically acclaimed director Christopher Nolan. It's outstanding with excellent direcing, excellent acting and excellent music. Come on guys we can do better!
This is the only live action series that disney did nail.
We got brawl packed action scenes, a lore packed story which makes great rewatching value, and complex characters. Mind you disney made this yet dares to dive to darker terriotory with at least one swear per movie without making it R level or messing it up like Star Wars. And that is why the whole series deserves number one at my list.
The latest Star Wars movies are terrible.
The latest Hobbit movies are terrible.
The Fantastic Beast series is terrible.
The latest MCU movies are stronger than ever.
Star Wars, LOTR and Harry Potter have all died off. The MCU hasn’t. Long live the king!
Marvel Cinematic Universe awesome, amazing timeline, it's great! I will watch them over and over again, and I love how Scarlet Johanson plays Black Widow she plays that role perfectly.
The whole thing is just ecstasy, for me I loved reading the comics as a kid, and now. Seeing these brought to life in a way that I have never seen done before with books, or comics.
The first film was great, the second film could've been way shorter, the third film is the worst, the fourth film is an improvement, and the fifth film is ok.
One of the cleverest and witty series. The performances are too good and also the plot and picturization. The complete idea is superb.
The Pirates of the Caribbean series is a well planned movie series, it has a bit of everything, comedy, romance, adventure, horror and action. Theres something for the whole family! The series isn't very complicated, has a good plot, and they always pick the perfect actors to play the roles. It's a great movie series, and I'm excited for the upcoming fifth Pirates of the Caribbean! Savy?
Over time, everybody's said the series have gotten worse, but I have to disagree. There's always some sort of unpredictability in each movie. I didn't really like the fourth one that much because that portrayed Jack Sparrow has some sort of scared fool, which everyone who's watched the first movie knows he's not. But the Pirates series is my favorite series ever. And Jack Sparrow is forever my favorite character.
The first film has almost no plot.
The second film has a bunch of unnecessary parts.
The third film is awful.
My issue with The Godfather is that I would not watch the entire trilogy again. While I've watched the first two probably more times than any of the films in any series on this list, I have only watched the full trilogy in its entirety once, and that was enough. In choosing the greatest series, one must choose a series that they can watch in full and enjoy. The Godfather Trilogy is nowhere near as good a trilogy as the Lord of the Rings. The first two films are definitely better movies than any of the LotR films, but as a trilogy The Godfather starts off strong but fails to do justice to the Corleone Family in the end.
I mean... come on... it's a legendary trilogy and a disgrace to see pirates of the carribean above this.
This was the epitomy of movies
This list is stupid. The Godfather trilogy represents the pinnacle of the movie industry. Star Wars is rightfully higher up, but seeing Godfather down here is a shame. And the fact that the Twilight Saga ranks higher than these masterpieces is proof that most of the voters here are adolescent teens who've never seen a movie of the previous century. And if special effects and sheer entertainment is what they seek, where the hell is Chris Nolan's Batman? All in all, a pathetic list.
One of the greatest film series of all time (and the greatest animated film series ever). Each and every film of the series is great. Along with historical significance for being the first ever cgi animated film series, its entertaining, its emotional and a must watch film trilogy for every film-lovers.
Classic and a pioneer for computer animation in general. Loved by a lot of people and extremely popular; I don't think I've ever seen someone who hasn't at least heard of thiese movies. Each movie was good on its own.
All the movies were A+ classics, this is one of those rare gems that the sequel's are better than the original. Fun to watch, funny moments, and the animation still hold up to this very day!
Insanely good, top three cartoon movies ever, and definitely the greatest animated series. About eight to ten would be a fitting spot for this series.
I voted for this one because it was just so low. Sure, the 4th one sucked. The 1st and 2nd are two of my favorite films ever made, the 3rd ranks just below them. Indiana Jones just has everything you want in an action movie - a vulnerable hero, sweet action, different story lines and so much more!
Indiana Jones is at least in the top three. It beats out Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, James Bond, The Dark Knight Trilogy, and The Lord of the Rings, which are all spectacular films in their own right.
Some might argue that this is too high on the list but this had the 4th amount of votes. Personally I absolutely loved these films but thought it should maybe be around number 5 or 6.
The ultimate swashbuckling adventure of the hard-boiled WW2 action of the 30s with the romantic heroism of Robin Hood. I get why they are not higher on the list as it is, but boy is it good.
Best original Franchise from the start. It shows the big difference between American and British Cinema. Constant development of the James Bond character through the years/decades, From Sean Connery to Roger Moore and Daniel Craig gives each movie a new and often fresh look at the 007 series. That and the Bond women and the new technology makes every movie worth while to watch even decades later.
James Bond isa consistently original spy franchise which has gone on for nearly 25 films now, and not for no reason. Each Bond brings his own personality to the table, from the well known ones like Sean Connery and Roger Moore to the unjustly unrecognized Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby. The series continues to adapt to its audience's needs, and that's why it is going to be a very long time until it is finished, because it's so damn good.
How is James Bond this low on the list? There are so many twelve year olds on this list voting nothing but Potter. Listen, watch at least the first three and then express your opinion. The series has been running since the 1960s while many of these have been going for only a decade. The hero, the villains, the love interests, the cars, the gadgets and everything is brilliant in this series. Anyone who mocks 007 deserves to die all alone.
I think that James Bond should be higher in the list of best movie franchises. The newer films with Daniel Craig in have been absolutely brilliant. I don't think that anybody else could reach the expectations to play Bond as well as he has.
It has a story different from other superhero movies. In 'X-Men", the superheroes (often called mutants) aren't given 'special treatments' or being recognized for what they are doing for the world. Instead, they are often hated or feared upon. This series shows the conflict of philosophy between Professor X (based on Martin Luther King Jr.) and Magneto (based on Malcolm X), wherein both wants to 'fit' in the world but with different 'methods'. The series explores the ideas of hope, anger, hatred, hypocrisy, fear, corruption, inferiority, and innocence.
I can't believe this is lower than Twilight!
X-men comes so close to the truth of uncovering the fact that everyone feels odd at so many levels. Everyone feels left out. Moreover, its an awesome series, with great graphics and superb characters! And not to forget the story line!
I am currently watching the whole movie series based on year it was released (right now we're at days of future past) and I'm totally hooked! We should have watched it differently so we won't get lost buy any how this series is awesome, this should be up higher!
Awesome movie. I was hoping for it to be higher. My favourite is Evan Peters as ('Quicksilver') and Magneto. The acting is remarkable. Anyway, can't wait for Apocalypse to come out
Why this is not in 3# place?
2-The Lord of the Rings
3-Back To The Future
Really you think Star Wars series is better than Back To The Future series?
One of my all time personal favorites recieved the 9th most votes. Was a very high grossing movies but couldn't put a blemish on movies like Harry Potter or Star Wars.
Unbelievable! For me James Bond is the best movie franchise but for the best movie I've ever seen it goes to Back to the Future 1! Great film!
Fast and Furious above Back To The Future? Are you kidding me? I mean FnF is great especially Furious5 but the whole BTTF series is a masterpiece. What's wrong with you people?
Honestly I never believed that Andrew Garfield could represent Spiderman after Tobey Maguire's success however I was blown away. I have loved spiderman since I ws a little kid and think that it definitely deserves to be in the top 10 list of best movie franchises ever. Thankyou to everyone involved in making the movies what they are!
I think spiderman is one of the best superhero movie franchises ever and they are so stupid for re-booting the franchise. Until the new batman movies it was rated the number best seller in superhero movies why would you rebot that?
The best one for me. A movie with a heart touching story of a shy guy. The guy with the power of saving the world and feels the responsibility for it.
I grew up watching the Sam Raimi films when I was younger. Seeing my favourite superhero/comic book character was truly 'amazing'. These films have a special place in my heart and I very much do love them.
"It Ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward! that's HOW WINING IS DONE!" Rocky is slow but great. It has a great message and I think its an awesome series :) ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY!
I knew this wouldn't make the top 3 because it is overshadowed by films nowadays like Harry Potter... But #14?!? I can't believe Twilight's even higher than this!
This is the most inspiring movie series of all time, and I will never the final moment when Rocky is walking away from the camera as it fades to black. It was the end of an era.
This is by far the best movie series ever. All athletes and sports fans can relate in some sort of way to Rocky. They just get you pumped. You can watch them over and over again and they never get old. It's not about some stupid name some nerd yells when he casts a spell like harry potter. This is by far the best series out there.
Rocky is the best by far! no one watches that harry potter crap except nerds and weirdos. The rocky movies are the most inspirational movies of all time, especially the 4th movie where he beats the Russian up, despite the crowd being against him. think about it, the list is about the best movie series ever, not the most well known.
While not as popular as the HP films, they are still a work of art and shows the true grittiness and action of the Games and Revolution.
I'm honestly pretty shocked that this series is so far down on the list. While it may not have gotten as much media attention as Harry Potter, Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, I feel like this series has a strong plot line which holds its own. That it ranks below Transformers seems pretty sad to me. The transformer movies aren't terrible, but they really do lack in any sort of character development. The female characters are simply there to serve as sex symbols and are constantly in need of being rescued. The series is honestly pretty sexist. Just a lot of stuff getting blown up and not a lot of substance.
This should make at least top 10. The novels are amazing and epic, well narrated and can make you imagine the intense and make your heart pounds. The movies are cool and beautifully made. Why this didn't make it top 10? Someone please rate this better! This is obviously better than that stupid Dark Knight. Superheroes are foolish and messed up, not like this epic series
God these movies are terrible anyone who know anything about sci fi or post apacolyptic stories would know how cliched and unoriginal these movies are, this movie is an unoriginal ripoff hint hintThe Running Man, Battle Royal, The Long Walk. The only reason these movies are popular is because they are marketed towards teens and it is often many peoples first experience to post apacolyptic and sci fi movies, trust me everything in this movie has been seen before, everything
The first one was great, second was ok, third was boring.
Jurrasic world was quite good apart from the fact it was next-gen Jurrasic park.
Jw:FAllen kingdom was just a couple of jurrasic park themes mashed together and made darker and gritier
The first film was a true piece of art, Lost World was ok, 3 was Horrible, World was pretty good but not original level, Fallen kingdom was mediocre
I love all 4 movies so much! Sometimes I go on marathons and watch them all in one day...I know how nerdy that is, but I don't care, I just love them so much. And I think it's gotta mean something if it has CGI that still holds up to this day and age, and even looks better than some other recent movies out there...amazing
Jurassic Park is one of the most well written books in history and actually had a decent formula. The movie had somewhat crappy effects here and there but the stroy was good and it's the highest grossing fil ever. Good job speilberg.
The reason the alien franchise is so great is because it created a different tone with each movie. With the first, it was a suspenseful horror film. The second created an epic action film. The third made depressing prison drama. The fourth was just a popcorn film and nothing more.
Great movies really liked it. I voted this because it deserves better. But I think Star Wars is the greatest movie franchise ever. Still this series kick ass you should see it!
Why is fhe hunger games and fast and furious above this I love the hunger games but alien is better but fast and furious come on! It has no plot its just some retards driving cars and beating up people
I adore all 4 films. They should make Alien 5! Great series
Just your typical Bay movie. Explosions, nonsensical plot and car chases. The only good thing that came out from this metal thing is Bumblebee which actually has a plot and the ride at Universal Studios.
Lol the fact that these movies are even on this list makes me laugh, these movies successfully destroyed a franchis. People who enjoy these movies are either children or mentally retarded people, and yes I went there, this is a free country I can say what I want, although I usually find the use of the word retarded in this context kind of offensive, I am willing to use it to describe what type of person you would have to be to enjoy these movies.
the 1st one is so bad it gave me nightmare's. the second one is the best of them all. the third was oh. the forth gave us some new characters to hate and the fifth can go and burn and die
I have seen all the series on this page and I believe Transformers deserves to be at least top 10. This movie has it all - romance, cars, and best of all, the epic battles.
Needs to be higher up. The first Terminator is a masterpiece in 80's sci-fi, horror, and violence (yes it is a horror film. See it again if you don't believe me). And Terminator 2 has the best action I've ever seen in a movie, ever. Terminator 3 and 5 are mediocre, but I have to admit Salvation kind of sucked.
This Movie is a 1984 classic by James Cameron, which later became a hit. Arnold Schwarzenegger was an awesome actor at that time. This movie rules. "I'll be back" has to be the most deadly and funny movie line of all time!
This is the best of the best. Action, love, drama, comedy. It has it all and wraps it into one series of movies. I never felts compeled to watch one series of movies.
All of em were the best, especially 1, 2 and 3. best movie series I recommend to watch!
Come on, giant mosters fighting in cities. Many o it's movies are very deep and comples, also, some other are very ridiculous and funny!
It may not have the best effects, but they are awesome.
The longest running franchise EVER! Needs to be number 1!
Also 60 years that's long
Come out to the coast, we'll have a few laughs... Classic! Die Hard 2 is the best! The Villans are amazing too. The gruber Brothers... And that Army Ranger Dude... Plus the dad from Good Times!
I cried inside when I saw this below Twilight. Come on guys.
Bruce, is the best. He should have been a superhero,"Hent"!
As stated by the TopTens website, the most amazing action film of all time.
The Fast and Furious series is the best of every series movie in this world. Even when I watch one part for the hundredth time, I'll never get tire of it or never make me stop laughing at it. Every single part!
By far the best. you would really appreciate the genius of the series when you read the following:
There was a lot of confusion when a scene from the third movie in the franchise was repeated in the sixth after credits ending scene. I have come up with a solution to this problem. The actual order of the movies is: 1-> 2-> 4-> 5-> 6-> and then the third. This means that there was a point in the series which gave us a glimpse of what will be there after 3 more parts. And that, my friend, is true genius
No, no this is no fair, fast and furious is the the best, it better than harry porter ( though it one of my favourite ), lord of the ring, star wars, godfather and others. I watched 1 to 8 it amazing especially 7,5 and 8 and still expecting the part 9. Believe me it emotional, funny and incredible, you guys should try and check this out.
Being a huge Harry Potter, Xmen, and Marvel fan, I still think FF is the best choice out of all. It has incredible graphics and fights, you never get a chance to rest and it feels like you are a part of all the breathtaking action scenes.. The last movie is the best ending-of-a-movie-series EVER. I could not stop my tears. It is just incredible
With the Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises out, the Batman series is so different and dark from other superhero movies and actually has a great story with twists! Definitely deserves to be higher.
The only movies that planned unrelated sequels, the only way to do it without directors making the sequel a cheap knock-off, like the Star Wars prequels.
This should be no. 1, Dark Knight Rises just secured that. I almost laughed and cried myself to death after seeing stupid harry potter as no. 1. The list is a joke.
Truly the best superhero series. The Dark Knight was awesome. Heath Ledger was brilliant. Nolan is a great director. I can't wait to see the thid one!
The Avenger is also one of my favourite. Maybe because I just love action movies.
One of the best featuring movies bringing all heroes together
Should be in top 5, it is a really good movie
Best superhero team ever - great movie
Ok, it may not have been as good as LOTR, but the Hobbit was still great! Some will criticize it for not being exactly like the book, but in my opinion it was actually better. The serious tone fits the story very well. Radagast is a very likeable character, and Smaug has to be the best movie villain ever. Seriously, he needed more screen time.
I LOVED this movie series. It deserves to be at the top. 5. Cjust as good as the Lord Of The Rings series. The music was phenomenal, the story didn't stray too far from the book, and I loved how at the very end it's the start of the first movie in LOTR. Just excellent, can't believe it's so low. Makes me want to see the Lord Of The Rings series again. Also there should have been a separate catagory for the Two Towers because I might have voted for that. come on people 39th?
The Hobbit has released it's first fil and is realeasing the next one in a coulple of months! Peter Jackson had done such a wonderful job directing this and Lord Of the Rings! I think this should be way up on the list because the scenery, actors, storyline, everything, simply everything is just mindblowing! Once this triology finishes, it'll be legendary as well.
I don't know what it's doing all the way down here, this along w/ the Lords of the Rings is one of the best series I ve watched. I haven't watched Star Wars so I can't draw a comparison but definitely best of the rest.
