Top 10 Best Movie Series

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars

Does no-one recognize true film brilliance these days? People who say that the newer trilogy is bad don't know what they're talking about. Every single one of these films is a masterpiece, I did expect Harry Potter to be No. 1 but I didn't want it to be!

Yes because the prequels are such amazing movies that are pinnacles of cinema - HarryPotter12

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

Were to start with Star Wars! I mean this is without a doubt the best movie series of all time. I love Star Wars. The story behind every movie is phenomenal. The characters, story, lightsaber battles, I mean the only not to like is Jar Jar!

I might be wrong, but I believe the reason most people voted for Harry Potter is because the Harry Potter series has so many movies. That doesn't nessicarilly make it the best movie series. Don't get me wrong, I love Harry Potter, but I honestly liked the Lion King & Toy Story more. The original Star Wars movies are considered to be some of the best movies ever made. They had outstanding specical effects as for their time. Star Wars was a movie like no one had ever scene before. In addition, I feel like a lot of movie conclusions give me a bit of an empty feeling, like something's missing. It takes me a long time to get over it. Although the celebration scene at the end of the sixth movie was a little chessy, a key scene at the end, (I won't spoil it for people who haven't seen the movies) made it all worth it.

With No.8 coming out this year Star Wars will tie with Harry Potter with 8 movies and I know Harry Potters last movie says 7 1/2 but its really No.8 - Thecyanryan

2 Harry Potter

Harry potter is the best movie of all times. No movie series will ever beat Harry potter! Harry potter is the best movie of the world! Harry potter has been working for 10 years and is the best movie ever made! I love Harry potter!

The Star Wars prequels were admittedly pretty bad in certain areas but the prequels plus the originals plus the sequels plus the stand alone films are not only bigger movies, but they are more visually appealing, and tell a much better story. Don't get me wrong, Harry Potter is great, but even with the prequels I believe that Star Wars is still a lot better. - GrimmShady

Harry potter is one of the best movies ever! As stephen king had said, "Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. "

2 why not 1 it is soon to be the record holding franchise so it is 1. More fans follow it to the T. Its book sales are up every term and it story line is off the hook. It is a seat filler and is sold out every night. It wooed critics in a matter of hours. It smashed box offices in minutes of its release. Thumbs up to this movie all the way.

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.

3 The Lord of the Rings

* 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

Lord of The Rings is one of those stories everybody needs to know about. Whether you read the books, or watch the films, it is one of those things you just HAVE to see. Along with Harry Potter and Star Wars, but for me Lord of The Rings is the best.

The complete act, great acting writing and star power the special effects to knock you out as well awesome

It is still a great read after all these years.

4 The Dark Knight

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!

One of the best cinematic experiences, out there not just action but an understandable plot.

I'M BATMAN!

This should definitely be in the top 5 at least! Each film in the trilogy is rated highly but people seem to forget that the Dark Knight Trilogy was n fact a trilogy!

5 Marvel Cinematic Universe

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.

I love all marvel movies

Even the clunkers in this series are good.

No series compares to the shear scale of this movie with better action scenes and better actors than any other series. Robert Downey is incredible, End Game is unreal as far as comedy goes the story of it all nothing can capture the emotions like this series it is unbelievable, life will never be the same now that end game is over. I am lost.

6 Pirates of the Caribbean

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?

What my comment show on public!

Great series for any and all ages

It is always so funny and is different from other series'.

7 The Godfather

It's sickening seeing The Twilight Saga so far up the list! Who really thinks Pirates of the Caribbean is a better movie than The Godfather? That's messed up. - logblobo

Pretend 3 never happened and you have the best movie and sequel ever

CLASSIC MAFIA FILM number 1

Mobsters!

8 Toy Story

Great saga for everyone

I have always loved this series from the first movie.

Come on people toy story deserves to be in the top tens... At least above Twilight saga... Faith in humanity lost :/!

Childhood in a box set.

9 Indiana Jones

Classic movies and everyone will like it

Harrison Ford is the best actor ever!

LOTR and Star Wars should bet at top 2 forever

This is honestly tied with star wars at #1. No one beats Harrison Ford.

10 X-Men

X-Men movies are very interested

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!

It's a good series but has many bad movies only good ones are first class and dofp

This is a great series with a lot of action and well thought out, I think it should really be in the top 10

The Newcomers

? Spider-Man

Spider-Man movies are very interested

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.

Spiderman should be number #1 its the best movie ever

The Contenders

11 James Bond Franchise

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.

Timeless and easily able to be brought up to date,the original spy

YOU NEVER GET DISAPPOINTED WHO EVER THE BOND IS.

12 Back To The Future

I love action movies

Don't think the Back To The Future trilogy is the best of all time? Then why don't you make like a tree and get out of here!

bridge

Matrix? The Wall-Crawler? Hogwarts' best student? Nothing in front of The Time Travellers - Heman

13 Rocky

A classic story bye a person who was a person no one new who became one of the most famous people in movies and never stops

A STORY LINE WE ALL UNDERSTAND ITS ABOUT LIFE

It's the BEST series ever. How could you guys forget a LEGEND like this? With the EPIC Stallone. ROCKY deserves to be on the TOP. And you people have put Potters and SAW's above it? For the win.

In my opinion it deserves No.5 Star Wars number 1 Harry Potter No.2 Pirates Of The Carribean No.3 and The Godfather No.4 - Thecyanryan

How this is not in the top 3 I'll never know. Not just a great story but an inspirational character in Rocky, 1-4 could be in the top 10 movies of all time.

14 The Hunger Games

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.

My gosh, this is like, my most favorite series I have ever watched. Not only it's a love story but it's about fighting for peace and hope. Not only is this series is fun, Jennifer Lawrence is in this series and she's my favorite actress so it make this movie THE BOMB! It should be the first or second top list! Hope they make a fifth movie.

It is one of the magnificent movies I have ever seen

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

15 Transformers

Okay not the best movies, but an overall good series.

Nah this series isn't that good.

Best movie ever

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.

16 Jurassic Park

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.

Should be after LOTR for sure

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 - Co0lk1d25

The Jurassic Park series is one of the best movie series I have ever seen. They need to make a 4th edtion! I can't wait until they all come together after all these years to make another movie! JP4 - 2013!

17 Terminator

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!

Not one of the movies were bad, UNLIKE star wars in which the first 3 sucked and were not that necessary

1 and 2 are some of the finest films of all time but just don't mention the other 3 although there is an animated film coming out that looks dark and gritty that the fans have been waiting for

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.

18 Alien

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!

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.

It a very gude yes?

I adore all 4 films. They should make Alien 5! Great series - siril991

19 Die Hard

One and three were the best ones

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!

Full of raw Bruce Willis action.

You guys kidding this is the best series ever made true journey of A man who don't wanna die simple AWESOME AND YOU ARE PUTTING IT BELOW TWILIGHT SAGA what GUYS U ALL SUCK VAMPIRES

20 The Fast and the Furious

Fast and furious is my favorite series of all time, can't wait till the sixth movie comes out.

This film is very good

Skip the first three and you just get all the action.

Make my day when I am bored I am watching this all parts

21 Star Trek

They’ve made like 100 different star treks starting and 1968, AND STILL GOING!

Live long and prosper!

How is so much down the order...? Vote for it please...! This is the best series I have ever seen the likes of spock kirk and sulu make it delightful...!

Star Trek is the Best thing that ever happened in my life. Live long and Prosper

22 Godzilla

Also 60 years that's long - SOUTHPARKFANHH

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.

23 Batman

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. - HonestKeil17

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.

All I have to say is "Why so serious? " and why the hell is this number 2? Oh well, The Dark Knight Rises will probably show Chris Nolan's greatnes.

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.

24 The Matrix

"The Matrix" has the most truth to it of all of these series, if you actually pay attention to what the movies are trying to tell you, than you would understand what I am trying to tell y'all. "The Matrix" is the best movie series by a long shot!

Delicious Masterpiece and a unique production! The Matrix trilogy is far far better than the other series. Great action careographies and a meaningful spritual message seperate the movie from other movies in this genre

It was a very fantastic series. Let's notions like it bullet-time originated from this movie. It was well written and contained every kind of action

Best movie ever well defined and a great storyline... All the three parts are so intelligently made that you can understand it by seeing all the three parts together which makes it a great movie...

25 The Hobbit

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.

39? , seriously. this deserve the first place. check out the box office. "iron man" doesn't deserve at the 39 please guy. do you guys got sense of humor?

good movie

I would consider this and the Lord of the rings the same series

26 Home Alone

If you don't like Macaulay Caulking get out of town.

HOME ALONE 1 & 2 REALLY GOOD

Beucase it's the best of all its funny, and it's so epic to find a kid whose kinda smart to protect their house

I loved the kid so protective and entertaining adorable young boy

27 Superman

Amazing one and two series. Three is a very funny movie.

I love his abilities

I do not like any of the superman movies, and Batman v Superman ruined my fan made of Batman, but he's still great though.

WE ALL HAVE GROWN UP WITH SUPERMAN I THINK DC HAVE LOST THERE WAY WITH HIM NOW

28 Scream

I definitely love scream! It's intense and shocking and there is a new mystery every movie. I don't know if the show is good but I will definitely watch it. - Averiy

Best series ever.. Its so intense and surprising

One of the funniest films ever, no need to scare, just good to laugh

I love scream ist so fraking good, and you just know that some people are dying. I just LOVE Noah seri. he love killers and is obssesed whit Brandon James

29 Mad Max

THE BEST POST - APOCALYPTIC FILM AND THE ACTING WAS REALLY GREAT

If you like post-apocalyptic wasteland and the whole future setting, then you will love mad max. Its weird yet beautiful in a way why was this not on the list sooner vote people! - the-rate-it-guy

A great bike stunt movie in MM1 then post apocalyptic mayhem!

Great trilogy.

30 Men in Black

It is a superb movie. I saw this movie for 10 to 14 times

Superb movie series

This movie recieved the 10th most votes for the greatest movie series ever. If there's one word to describe these movies it's Will Smith.

Talk about a dynamic duo! Go WILL & TOMMIE LEE!

31 Rambo

This was my first rated R movie ever and I was the happiest little kid the next day just bragging to my friends "I saw Rambo"

Truly an epic series. First Blood (the first part) is one of my favorite movies of all times. Granted Rambo 4 was bad, but the other movies more than made up for it.

First blood is an American classic. The rest however, not so much.

32 Shrek

Best anime

My favorite anime

Shrek is not anime

Best anime ever!

33 Iron Man

I love iron Man

The Iron Man movie series is absolutely brilliant! The humour is hilarious, it never gets old! The action is perfect as not too overtop, even for Tony. The casting is also perfect. Gwyneth makes a brilliant Pepper, Rhodes is great and Happy Hogan is fantastic. But most importantly Robert Downey Jr makes the whole series worth it, there is no other way to put it; he is Iron Man. The trilogy is definitely a must-see. Iron Man is one of those RARE series that doesn't get worse each new addition to the series. Each movie ties in with the previous, never disappointing viewers and giving that very rare sense of continuity that is essential in a movie series. The Iron Man movie series is beautifully action-filled, hilarious to give it that lighthearted feel and perfectly casted. A definite must-see.

Iron Man 2 is my favourite movie of all time and even though it doesn't follow the same plot as the Comic books, the movie trilogy was absolutely brilliant and I watch it over and over again

This series is so intense and I absolutely LOVE IT! I never get bored while watching it and I highly recommend this series to watch. To be honest the third one is my favorite. There is so much action it this. And Iron Man/Tony Stark/Robert Downey Jr. Is also in The Avengers. AND I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO GET STARTED ON THAT MOVIE! IT'S AWESOME.

34 The Bourne Series

Deserves more than it has given..

Non stop action packed enjoyment. Come on now. This movie is kick ass. Yea star wars was great and all. But its old news. A little to far on the fantasy side. I enjoy this a lot because the cia could really have people like this.

Never saw a movie like dis before of my life... It should be no1. No1 position suits dis movie very well. Waiting to watch the the Bourne legacy movie.. Definite watchable movie.. Matt damons action is a big plus to this movie. He is the only one who can suits to the character of jason bourne.

I HAD A CONFUSION BETWEEN 'BOURNE' AND 'THE GODFATHER'... But I THINK BOURNE SERIES SHOULD BE THE NUMBER 1... AGAIN HARRY POTTER IS A MOVIE FOR CHILDREN CAST BY SOME LAME TEENAGERS... WHAT IN THE HELL MADE IT NUMBER 1?

Because it's way better than any other movie series. Bet you that you have never seen a Harry Potter movie - HarryPotter12

35 Marvel's The Avengers

I love marvel avengers

Should be in top 5, it is a really good movie

Should be top 5

Should be at least top 10

36 The Lion King

Very good movie for kids

Best movies of all time and don’t even fight me on this.

Okay okay why the heck is Twilight above The Lion King? I know that it's just opinion but seriously?! Just why? - Anonymousxcxc

Its fantastic, I can't stop seeing it

37 Planet of the Apes

Awesome series which is in fact complete. Takes us full circle and by part five the dismal future we see in the first has been transformed into a harmonious one.

Literally can watch POTA and never get tired of seeing them

Haven't seen this in year, probably not since I lived at home with my parents.

This series could go a long way, if done right!

38 Child's Play

scary

Love the movie haven’t seen 1,2,3, or seed of chucky or bride of chucky but I saw 7th and I have the first chucky movie just haven’t seen it yet

39 Scary Movie

The best comedy if you are a horror fan. - kkkppp

Amazing film - great references, know exactly when to throw jokes in - love it

40 Dirty Harry

Great trilogy. Went a little off the rails in four and five.

41 Friday the 13th

One of the best and most well known horror franchises of all time.

The most thrilled pack of series

Duh one of the best

42 How to Train Your Dragon

Wonderful animation, stock characters, with humor and interesting plots.

Best one

A beautiful series! Should be way higher! I'm thinking people forgot how much they liked these movies.

How in the hell is this not higher up on the list?! Greatest animated franchise of all time!

43 Saw

An amazing, well thought out movie series that captivated me and kept me on my feet waiting for the next movie. All the movies came out so close together compared to other movie series making it easier to remember the first. Evan though it had seven movies all the movies truly made you want to keep watching (without the cheap trick that the walking dead T.V. series uses to get people to watch the next one... Most people might think the movie is just about someone killing other people for fun, but its much more and incredibly hard to explain..

The saw series is great.. It will make you think of what is going to happen next and the story is very interesting and exciting..

Harry potter at 1 that's made up for teens and girls.. No offense to anyone who watches Harry potter... I'm not saying rank saw higher but just watch for its story.. I literally clapped after watching the last part...
Maybe people don't watch because of its blood and gore stuff
.. But just watch the first part.. It's ending is the main... Don't let anyone tell you tell you what happens in the end... Just watch it... And when you're done.. You will say man that was one hell of a movie

Well, I think best.. Nothing will ever beat that thriller, so many things in it, its just, awesome!

44 Austin Powers Sir Augustine Danger "Austin" Powers is a fictional character from the Austin Powers series of films, and is created and portrayed by Mike Myers.

Austin powers is one of the greatest comedy series there are, next to ace ventura, Non can beet Mike Myers and Jim Carey for sheer comedy brilliance.
So hope the rumors are true and Austin Powers 4 comes out in 2014

Solid trilogy.

This is mine and my grandads movie! He unfortunately passed away 5 years ago so when I watch this it reminds me of so many times we'd watch this together eating our dinner kebabs! ❤

45 Sherlock Holmes

Very good mystery movie

As Sherlock said... " You only see, but you did not observe... "., the best fictional character..

This is the best movie series I have ever watched. I think it should be in the top ten list. 50 is a disgrace for such a wonderfully engaging movie.

Awesome serie especially the english version.

46 Ace Ventura

Two of the funniest movies of all time.

47 Predator

This franchise should have been one of the best, but, someone can't seem to get a good break. Director? Producer? , who knows!

48 Mortal Kombat

Pretty good story, just very old and needs to be redone with better graphics and quality

Need a new movie

49 The Naked Gun
50 Lethal Weapon

Definitely deserves to be in top 10, all 4 films have everything you need in a good film

The lethal Weapon series is my all time favourite, and I'm only 15 years old. One of the greatest pairings in film history, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover! Love it!

This is the movies series I always watch. Should be #1 no other movie series was ever like this. Made 4 fantastic movies.

All four are excellent. Well spaced and thought out with loveable characters and great stories.
