Top Ten 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 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

Michael Bay for the love of whatever principle you believe in...stop with the transformers series. Please?!

I've never seen a single one but I just know it's rubbish - tinocean

2 Star Wars

I don't think I have ever seen a full Star Wars movie ever (Maybe Empire Strikes Back but I don't really remember much from it anyway). Am I just some weird degenerate form of a human being because I just don't care for Star Wars honestly? - cjWriter1997

It's a good series. I think it deserves most of the movies and fame it has. Not all, but most. - FiaFlora

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

Why did it even start? - WinchesterGirl26

3 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

So aggravating. - tinocean

Oh god, no. Please not Batman V Superman: Yawn of Justice - TwilightKitsune

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

4 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

I Think It's Fox's Fault, Not Blue Sky's - JPK

(by the way I'm back since my mom let me use her computer)
I agree that this franchise needs to die. - Cartoonfan202

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). - DaisyandRosalina

5 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

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

6 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. - SYLFan1234

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

Just how many more sequels does this franchise need. - egnomac

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!

7 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

Please. Stop. No more. NO MORE. NO! NO! NO! NOO-! - mattstat716

8 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, 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


9 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

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

The Contenders

11 Harry Potter
12 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... - EliHbk

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

So overrated and Annoying

Overrated, _VideoGamefan5

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

14 Cars
15 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

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

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

Let's just not have this on anymore lists.
It spontaneously makes me click the add comment button or vote button. - mattstat716

16 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

17 Minions

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

This was pretty mediocre. - mattstat716

Ugh why are they still a thing?

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! 🐒
