Top 10 Best Movie Series
The Top Ten
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
* 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.
Harry Potter comes with 8 movies of enjoyment. Each one with a different task at hand and deserves a spot close to the top (especially with its large fan-base). The Godfather trilogy also deserves a higher spot on the list for the first two movies are master pieces, and the third (although nowhere near the first two) still holds its own.
With all of this aside, no movie series (any more than 1) will ever meet the triumph that came with the LotR trilogy. Each movie no less than a master piece, that together, tell a story of friendship, fellowship, and the journey to battle against the odds. For that's what LotR truly is. Not three movies, but one large journey. One that is experienced when watching each back to back.
Nothing negative can be said about either one of the three movies. Something that can't be said for most of the movies to date. Even the Harry Potter series has obvious "copies" that are taken directly from the LotR. Examples: The spiders are a copy of the ...more
Overlong with unnecessary parts. The movies are fine, but they can be way shorter.
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!
we all know the the dark night is the best thing created by humans
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.
One of the best cinematic experiences, out there not just action but an understandable plot.
This should be higher...Endgame was one of the best endings to a series.
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.
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.
I love this series so much.
It has so many great characters and film genres.
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?
One of the cleverest and witty series. The performances are too good and also the plot and picturization. The complete idea is superb.
The story, the actors, the way it is presented with humour is what makes me rate it the best series ever. Doesn't the success of the 2nd and 3rd part show it? Well, Jack Sparrow's great mind and the pirates are loved by all. Love Pirates! So well, What are all you waiting for? VOTE FOR IT!
It is presented in a unique style and johnny deep makes it perfectly. Also what makes it different is it involves pirates, ancient places and even best actions and adventures.
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.
The first film has almost no plot.
The second film has a bunch of unnecessary parts.
The third film is awful.
Pretend 3 never happened and you have the best movie and sequel ever
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.
HOW DO PEOPLE SAY WITH A STRAIGHT FACE THAT THEY LIKE PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN OVER THESE 4 MASTERPIECES!? NO OFFENSE TO THE OTHER SIX, BUT THIS IS NUMBER ONE BY FAR!
Literally a flawless trilogy. Have you ever seen a movie trilogy where all 3 installments have 100% on RT?
Come on people toy story deserves to be in the top tens... At least above Twilight saga... Faith in humanity lost :/!
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.
Great story telling, I learned a lot about story telling as an art by watching these films
So much action, and history. I love Harrison Ford's role he plays it perfectly.
How is this not higher? In every other list I have seen it is. Come on people, do you're best to make this what it deserves to be. Top ten at least.
This is honestly tied with star wars at #1. No one beats Harrison Ford.
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.
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 (as my friend Wi***** quoted) is a brilliant series that's been around for a long time, has potential for the movie-making hall of fame. I mean, 8%? James Bond should have MUCH better than that!
Timeless and easily able to be brought up to date,the original spy
shame it only got 2 movies
Good good movies
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
X men all parts are my favurite I am big fan of hugh jackman
I am waiting for his next part
Overrated trilogy in my opinion, all the movies are copy paste just set in a different time.
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!
Matrix? The Wall-Crawler? Hogwarts' best student? Nothing in front of The Time Travellers
The greates trilogy of movies ever!
You forgot Lord of the Rings and the Star Wars Original Trilogy.
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.
Not sure if we are talking about the amazing or the Toby one. Both are interesting to watch though.
Spiderman should be number #1 its the best movie ever
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
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
"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!
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.
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.
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
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
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 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
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
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.
This is awful
kind of, can't go one fight scene without seeing the Michael bay explosion
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.
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.
I adore all 4 films. They should make Alien 5! Great series
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
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.
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
I cried inside when I saw this below Twilight. Come on guys.
Fast and furious is my favorite series of all time, can't wait till the sixth movie comes out.
You have problems the fast and the furious should be in the top ten. At least in top 15. And you don't even have the riddick series on here so you need to resort your page
I like the movie it's so great they did well
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.
Also 60 years that's long
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.
Best superhero ever. Batman returns was great. Batman and robin sucked.
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.
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.
One of the best featuring movies bringing all heroes together
Best superhero team ever - great movie
Should be top 5
It should be in top 15
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?
I would consider this and the Lord of the rings the same series
A really amazing movie
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.
