Top 10 Most Oversaturated Movie Franchises

These are movie franchises that get way more movies than they deserve and get too much for what they're worth.
The Top Ten
1 Star Wars

I love Star Wars, I understand why it's number one. It should have stayed with just the Original and Prequel trilogies. The Sequels sucked and I personally don't consider them canon


Fight with me all you want, but I think this series should've just stayed as a trilogy. If so, I'd consider it one of the best movie trilogies of all time. After the first three movies, Star Wars jumped the shark. The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones were both awful with terrible characters and bad acting. Revenge of the Sith was also pretty mediocre and didn't really do anything special apart from having Anakin be an idiot. The Force Awakens was overhyped and nothing special either by simply being a clone of A New Hope. (I'm sure people hate it when we say this, but we say it because we believe it's lazy writing at its finest). Rogue One was also a boring snorefest that brought nothing special and was only made for those good ol' greenies. I currently can't stand Star Wars or its fanbase because the fans are brainwashed by their nostalgia. They don't realize that their beloved franchise has turned into a cash cow so they milk ...more

I love this series! ( Excluding the prequels & Rogue One ) Die Hard sequels, Harry Potter, Star Trek, The Matrix sequels, Twilight, The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, Jaws sequels, Transformers sequels, Dc Cinematic Universe, Ice Age sequels, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Mummy sequels, and The Land before time are worse!

Watch Chris Stuckmann's analyzed The Force Awakens review and you will understand. I liked The Force Awakens and disliked Rogue One.

2 Transformers

Star Wars is the most EPIC franchise in all of cinema history! Yes, the Sequels were a bit of a let down, and the first two prequels weren't the best, but Revenge Of The Sith and the Original Trilogy were EPIC! I recommend watching Star Wars if you never got to watch it. In my opinion the top Star Wars Movie is Revenge Of The Sith, but the rest of the Original Trilogy is not far behind.

This franchise put you on a journey though The Tragedy Of Anakin Skywalker, and later, shows you Luke's Story. I don't want to spoil the plot if you somehow haven't watched them yet. And if you ARE one of the people who somehow haven't watched it yet, here's some advise, watch it.

Won't this series just die already? A little birdie came and told me that we are expecting FOURTEEN MORE MOVIES to come out. Why? We've already sunk to the bottom of the barrel. At this point, you can see how tired the franchise is. Every single one of these movies is literally the exact same thing! Terrible acting, terrible effects, fighting without knowing who is doing what, important scenes in the dark and the rain...come ON! "Age of Extinction" was just awful, and every other movie coming up is gonna suck. Hell, some users are planning to BOYCOTT the new "Transformers: The Last Knight" movie coming out this year just because it's going to probably exist for money purposes.

Meh, I don't care if these keep coming out. If Michael Bay keeps making money off of the franchise, then if it's not broken don't fix it. Besides, I still enjoy watching the cool CGI and action sequences, even though I'm mixed on this series.

Why couldn't they have just stopped at Dark Of The Moon? It would've made total sense if that was the last movie since the decepticons died which means the war ended and the Autobots decided Earth was their new home. Age of Excintion and The Last Knight were redundant.

3 Diary of a Wimpy Kid

"Dog Days" was really bad, but this wouldn't have made the list if it wasn't for "The Long Haul". This franchise is really outdated and they're desperately trying to make more money from these pathetic movies. The second one was honestly the only decent movie in the quadrilogy. The rest were horrible! It's all the same bad luck-type humor, terrible acting, and Greg not having control over his life and complaining about it. Plus, the amount of toilet humor in the most recent pile of trash is astounding. Read the books if you actually want to laugh.

I actually like the first three... Dog Days was abysmal compared to the previous two, but when the Long Haul came out. I am now ready waiting for the movie series to end. Just let Jeff Kinney do the humor with his books, okay?

All of the movies are bad, and I have not even seen the fourth one.

I like the first three

4 Alvin and the Chipmunks

Dam this series! None of the live action movies are great, their horrible with fart jokes and toilet jokes! If you want a good chipmunk movie I suggest the 80's movie, a chipmunk adventure, that's a good one, but the live action movies are bad

Yes, this is actually a movie series. And it makes you lose all hope for music.

The older movies were a LOT better than the live-action ones they released.

My childhood is ruined by the fact that I actually liked these back then.

5 DC Cinematic Universe

None of their movies were good so far. Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice were both boring as hell snorefests. I can't stand this portrayal of Superman because there's absolutely no contrast between him and Batman. Batman is also way too brutal here. Batman V Superman was such a mess it was painful. Suicide Squad is also SUPER overrated it's painful. Everyone wants Rotten Tomatoes SHUT DOWN because the critics gave it a FAIR RATING. It was not a good movie, the plot was a hot mess, the effects were awful, and the characters were one-dimensional. I really hope Wonder Woman and the 2018 Batman Movie are both good.

DC has become extremely overrated with batman superman the flash and more

These are getting better

They're movies are starting to get better with shazam and aquaman

6 Alpha & Omega

This series needs to die!

7 Ice Age

Probably the most milked animated franchise there is, at least other studios managed to stop agreeing on making more.
I once remember when the franchise was good as a standalone film, but when it became a trilogy, that should've been it.
While The Meltdown and Dawn of The Dinosaurs at least had some creativity, the rest are just bad!
It even shows that even Blue Sky doesn't want to make these anymore, and Fox is just using this as the studio's cash grab now.
But what pissed me off with the fifth film wasn't just because Blue Sky hit a surprising new low, but it was so irritating and idiotic, they even shoved in more pointless characters and added in almost everyone else from the franchise.
The animation was executed well, but it's potential was wasted onto this deadbeat franchise.
Please, if they do greenlit a sixth film in the 2020s, leave it out to rust and prove Fox and Blue Sky that the franchise needs to go before it does even more damage than it has.

This one goes without saying, Blue Sky has just made this a cash cow and everybody knows it. "Ice Age: Collision Course" says it all basically. They should've just kept this as a trilogy and moved on with their lives. This series is devoid of any creativity whatsoever now.

This francise was great, unfortunately after the 3rd movie the series started to be forced and unoriginal.

Thus could've been one of the greatest animations series of all time with others like Kung-fu Panda but now it has not gone downhill unlike the other franchise (yet).

The first one was amazing, the second was great, the third was cool, the fourth was mediocre and the fifth was atrocious. The franchise should've stopped after the third film.

8 Despicable Me

This franchise does not need another instalment.

I'm sick of minions

9 Fifty Shades of Grey

REALLY, there are 2 movies, what is wrong with you dudes? 2 MOVIES! This is just a hate list with a misleading name at this point!

PLEASE STOP MAKING THESE MOVIES. We are all sick of these movies because each and every one of them was complete garbage. "Fifty Shades of Black" and "Fifty Shades Darker" were both considered cinematic trash, and the upcoming "Fifty Shades Freed" is definitely going to be garbage. Stop torturing us with these movies guys.

These two actors are so desperate for fame. I still don't know their full names.

This franchise needs to stop. We already had 2 movies, and now they're creating a 3rd movie.

10 The Fast and the Furious

I gotta say, this is a series that actually get better by the movie, 8 was the best because of so many twists you weren't really expecting unless you wanted to ruin the movie...

Fast and furious movies are all the same. There is 9 films soon to be 10 they say at fast and furious 10 it will end we all know it won't end as each film is a cashgrab and they know it

I Don't care how praised this series is, Its Rubbish.

The Contenders
11 Pirates of the Caribbean

The first one was ok but the rest were rubbish!

12 Child's Play
13 Die Hard

Should have been made a trilogy but they made 5 films the last 2 being super bad

14 The Smurfs

Live-action or animated, this movie series is mediocre at best and the movies are usually made to sell toys or promote musical artists like Britney Spears and Meghan Trainor. Seriously, name one good thing about "The Smurfs 2" and I will give you a damn cookie.

There are only three films in this franchise so far, so I wouldn't say it's oversaturated. None of the films are good, but it isn't saturated.

Aka the original Minions

15 Friday the 13th
16 The Land Before Time

This children's movie series literally has fourteen sequels. You heard me right. FOURTEEN sequels! The recent one was released last year. Stop making these sequels already! No one even likes them and it's getting old really fast.

I watched (and liked) all 13 movies except the 14th movie but honestly I kinda agree, they should stop making a lot of sequels! Most people won't even bother to watch them at all anyways.

So many sequels, I love the first one but then way too many came in, even the narrator sounds bored knowing that there's only a few kids still watching.

Up next
Land before time 15, the waterfall
Land before time 16, tree stars
Land before time 17, the canyon
And the list goes on!

17 Twilight

It's been years and it has a saga like movies I think. I mean this would make you think oh vapires are nice.
A girl with no personality is dating a vampire and it became iconic

Do I need to say anything at all other than "It's Twilight" or can we just move on with our lives?

Vampires are said to be pure evil blood-sucking immortal creatures of the night. This movie series should have not been made. :(

Have not seen, do not plan to.

18 Minions

I remember when it was EVERYWHERE on the T.V. and the movie was a cheap copy of the Rabbids.
Despaciable Me is also getting a third sequel, I wonder if they will destroy the series even more...

I'm wondering if Despicable Me 3 will be good or not...I'm not sure.

Ugh why are they still a thing?

19 Divergent

Yet another great book series that got turned into a terrible movie series. These movies are just really boring and uninteresting. Why do they keep trying with this franchise of movies exactly? "Allegiant" was considered one of the worst movies of 2016. They're trying too hard to get money with this series.

The series only has 3 movies, and they ended.
I did like the first 2 films, but the 3rd film should have been the conclusion instead of a two parter.

They ended it after Allegiant. Thank God for that

I hate this franchise

20 Harry Potter

8 Harry Potter films is fine, but 5 Fantastic Beasts films is pushing it.

Highly overrated and aimed for children!

5 Fantastic Beasts movies? Really?

The fanbase is insane

21 Marvel Cinematic Universe

Most overrated by far. By any means "the best movies of all time".

Why isn't this higher on the list?

22 Spider Man

The first 2 films are great, 3 was decent, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 is excellent, TASM2 is decent, Homecoming and Far From Home are good, Spiderverse is ok, Venom sucked.

The Raimi and Webb films were fine, but now they're churning out so many Spider-Man films.

And did we really need or want Sony's crappy universe?

Um...I enjoyed the Toby McGuire series, it's not oversaturated anymore and the two spider man movies after this trilogy were way worse.

How many T.V. seasons it got? And SpiderMan got onobixious here, it should've been a movie only series.

23 Cars

Did it really need a sequel? And. Now planes?

Why does this franchise even exist?

24 Frozen

I thought the first movie was actually pretty good, but the amount of merchandise and the amount of spinoff clips and movies this is getting is uncalled for. Can't we just accept the fact that this movie came out in 2013 and nobody really cares about it anymore?

I really really like the movie, unfortunately it turned into a mark which is sad.

It only has one movie, and one film upcoming. Not really oversaturated.

Frozen is a good movie.

25 Resident Evil
