Top Ten Most Oversaturated Movie Franchises

DCfnaf
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 Transformers

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. - DCfnaf

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. - Mcgillacuddy

My dad and brother watched the fifth installment today. I was surprised they were still alive when they came out of the cinema. - TwilightKitsune

This franchise should've stopped after Dark of the Moon because after that, it just got stupider as it went along.

2 Star Wars

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!

This rebooted series doesn't even resemble the original series in any way. - tinocean

This is a movie series? I originally thought it was a tabletop role-playing game that had movies.

It's literally everywhere! - PerfectImpulseX

3 Ice Age

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. - DCfnaf

The ice age series started out great but now we're getting just a terrible series I didn't even get the 5th ice age and we all know that if there's a next ice age it's going to be terrible

If ice age collision course doesn't scream end this franchise then I don't know what does - Randomator

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.

4 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. - DCfnaf

DC has become extremely overrated with batman superman the flash and more - Adventurur2

So aggravating. - tinocean

Batman v. Superman - 5/10
Man of Steel - 3/10
Suicide Squad - 3/10 - BeatlesFan1964

5 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.

Fourteen sequels? Are they all the same thing cause if so, perfect contender for the list. - DCfnaf

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. - Neonco31

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. - PeeledBanana

6 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. - DCfnaf

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. - Hellagaygru

Aka the original Minions - Randomator

These are just so annoying - VideoGamefan5

7 Fifty Shades of Grey

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. - DCfnaf

Fifty Shades of Black was actually a parody of Fifty Shades of Grey and is not part of the franchise. - MegaSoulhero

What the, there was exactly more than on of these made, I guess the others silently went into the direct to dvd with no coverage - germshep24

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! - EliHbk

Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades of Black, Fifty Shades Darker, and the upcoming Fifty Shades Freed are the reason it made the list. Therefore, I'd consider it oversaturated. - DCfnaf

This franchise needs to stop. We already had 2 movies, and now they're creating a 3rd movie. - Fullwalking2

8 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. - DCfnaf

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? - MissRWBY202

I like the first three - PeeledBanana

5 movies - Adventurur2

9 The Fast and the Furious

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

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... - EliHbk

Surprised this isn't higher - VideoGamefan5

Dcfnaf, at least star wars was revolutionary, and this was not as much

10 Twilight

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

Oh god this one... - DaisyandRosalina

Ugh - Randomator

Vampires are said to be pure evil blood-sucking immortal creatures of the night. This movie series should have not been made. :( - DinoLover4242

The Contenders

11 Alvin and the Chipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks, originally David Seville and the Chipmunks or simply The Chipmunks, is an American animated music group created by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., for a novelty record in 1958. The group consists of three singing animated anthropomorphic chipmunks: Alvin, the mischievous troublemaker, ...read more.

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. - DCfnaf

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

My childhood is ruined by the fact that I actually liked these back then. - 445956

12 Harry Potter

The fanbase is insane - DaisyandRosalina

Highly overrated and aimed for children!

13 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. - DCfnaf

It's tries to hard to be like the Hunger Games - TwilightKitsune

14 Resident Evil

I like the games, but the movies except the first one were just Boring - VideoGamefan5

15 Pirates of the Caribbean

This franchise needs to just end already - Randomator

I'm pretty sure this is ending...riiight? - DCfnaf

wrong - EliHbk

16 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? - DCfnaf

Frozen's Hate Is Old And Not Funny Now - JPK

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

Unfortunately 6-10 year old girls will not shut up about this movie - Randomator

17 Scooby-Doo

There's literally like 2 DTV Scooby-Doo movies released each year.
This franchise should end now. - PerfectImpulseX

18 Sharknado

3 sequels for one crap excuse of a "film" - VideoGamefan5

Ice age should be lower and that is also bad

This got 4 Movies, why just why? - VideoGamefan5

Because it is considered to be "so bad it's good" for a lot of people - PerfectImpulseX

19 Despicable Me
20 Die Hard
21 Mission: Impossible
22 Cars

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

23 Barbie
24 Star Trek
25 Spider Man

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

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

First 3 Are good, but TASM1 and 2 are overrated- VideoGamefan5

The first 3 movies were great, the 2 TASM films were ehhh to bad, homecoming looks amazing - VideoGamefan5

26 Hotel Transylvania

How many do we need?

This series is literally having a 3rd one! Why? It comes out July 13. I'm going to spend my money on the sonic the hedgehog movie that comes out on the same day, instead

27 Minions

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

This was pretty mediocre. - mattstat716

I kinda liked it, yet it needs a plot - Adventurur2

You know how overrated this is, well minions is the 2nd highest grossing animated movie! Illumination doesn't care if their movies are bad, they just want to get their greesy hands on the dirty money they made! Greedy Monkeys! 🐒

28 Hunger Games

Yeah because it became extremely overrated - Adventurur2

Surprised this isn't higher. - Randomator

29 Alpha & Omega

This series needs to die!

30 Friday the 13th
31 Open Season

Just dumb - Randomator

Basically Ice age but surprisingly More stupid, Open season 3 is one of the most retarded movies I've ever seen, - VideoGamefan5

32 The Swan Princess
33 Jurassic Park

The 2nd one was okay. The 3rd one was just dull.

I disagree with Star Wars and the Mcu. But The first Jp flick is the only one worth watching! At least it's franchise is not as bad as Star Trek and Harry Potter!

34 Sing

I hope the sequel is good to!

Hope The Sequel Is Good - JPK

35 Ocean's Series

Ocean's 11 with Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney was pretty good, but I refuse to watch the rest.

36 The Little Cars
37 The Lion King

The first film was amazing, but the others? Meh. - HaxKid

The franchise as a whole is terrible, in my opinion. (i.e. having an entire species of hyena as henchmen, having the same animal stereotypes and lame character tropes over and over again, the list goes on and on)

38 Spy Kids

4 Movies, Like seriously? ,They came out in 2001, 2002, 2003, And then A 4th one nobody asked for comes out Like 8 years later? - VideoGamefan5

39 The Mummy

The first is fairly enjoyable! But the sequels were lackluster Garbage!

40 Indiana Jones
41 The Marvel Cinematic Universe
42 Shrek

Another movie that still popular because it's a meme out of control not surprising. - DaisyandRosalina

But shrek is love, shrek is life - VideoGamefan5

43 The Matrix
44 Avatar
45 Night at the Museum

I actually enjoy these movies, - VideoGamefan5

46 Rio
47 The Secret Life of Pets

Oh don't worry, it will be a franchise, when the 2nd one comes out 2019

Even Though I Really Liked The First One, I Don't Know About This One - JPK

48 X-Men
49 Curious George

The first one was good. Second one was bad, haven't watched the 3rd one yet
