Top 10 Worst Movie Franchises


The Top Ten

1 Twilight

Congratulations Twilight! You have scarred the minds of many teenage girls who will never understand what true love is.

Some of the worst acting ever put on film. This franchise is a joke.

This ruined the young adult genre of books and movies and made batman and robin feel good

Ah the haters, are all big babies upset because the vampires aren't blood sucking monsters nope they're romantic.

Come on it's better than a franchise based on a Twilight fanfiction.

2 Alvin and The Chipmunks

Honestly, I love the first live action Alvin And The Chipmunks movie, it has a moral and great meaning to it, like about how kids can change your life and how kids should be treated like kids, not adults. But the other ones are trashy, don't have lots of meaning, and too hip. - AnimeDrawer

This is a disgrace, Alvin and The Chipmunks is the greatest movie franchise of all time! Look if you have a problem with this franchise then you don't know good movies. This is the citizen kane of the modern theatre. How dare you say this is a bad franchise.

Who asked for these films to be made? I honestly feel like these films were made by marketing executives in an office somewhere rather than someone who actually cares about film-making

3 Resident Evil

I hate all the Resident Evil movies equally, the thing that makes me so mad about this series is they decided to make the whole movie about Alice they should have just called the movie franchise Alice The Zombie Slayer why bother having the Resident Evil Licence if they're not going to use it, It's a big middle finger to the RE fans is what it is the only Resident Evil movies that are worthy of the RE name are Resident Evil Degeneration and Resident Evil Damnation both fiture characters from the Resident Evil Games. - ZZDOORAL

Just because a movie franchise makes a whole lot of money doesn't make it good that's the case for Resident Evil they should have called this franchise "Alice the Zombie Slayer" because that's all Resident Evil is. - egnomac

4 Children of the Corn

Meh film, but came up with some funny jokes.

Now I'm questioning if there's a version called "Children of The Candy Corn" - mattstat716

5 Gingerdead Man

They really made a movie of a giant cookie killing people? Why would anyone go to see this in a movie theater?

Run Run Run as fast as you can you can't escape from me I'm the Gingerbread man, Wow what idiot came up with this garbage. - egnomac

It's almost as if the person who wrote the script used to be a porn director... with the bad puns and all

Ohmergawsh! A KILLER CoOKIE! Just pour milk on it from the get go

6 High School Musical

How on Earth is this lower than Alvin And The Chipmunks, Fast And Furious, and Transformers those 3 franchises are awesome, but this franchise is a disgrace to Disney, Movie making, Music, and sanity, I literally banged my head watching this terrible franchise at school!

Worst movie ever so annoying!

7 Transformers

How are these so popular? They're nothing but explosions, lame dialogue, and a random hot girl who serves next to no relevance to the plot (which it didn't have much of in the first place).

Loved the first one, thought the third one was okay, but downright hated the second and fourth ones. Only good thing about films 2-4 were the robot fights. Let's hope the fifth one doesn't get messed up. - OnyxDash

Many people want to say this to Michael Bay "You ruined Transformers" - egnomac

By far terrible Michael bay sucks

8 Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew
9 Amityville Horror

It just turns ridiculous after a while - whyiseveryusernametaken1234

10 Police Academy

I hate 4, 5, 6 and se... we don't talk about that 1

The Newcomers

? Godzilla 1998
? Scary Movie

The Contenders

11 Final Destination

Watching people die in ridicules fashion gets boring within the first death. - egnomac

It's like A Thousand Ways to Die made for the silver screen.

12 The Fast and The Furious

The movies that made any douche, that can barely afford a loud muffler, think he has the right to drive like an idiot.

This franchise is just an excuse to make money.

Parts 7 and 8 were the only good reboots, nothing else...

Hot Wheels: The Movie

13 Scooby-Doo

When Scooby zoinks all over your jinkies and he doesn't say no homo.

14 The Matrix

Call me weird, but I loved every movie in this trilogy even the last one.

15 Air Buddies
16 Alien vs. Predator

Because of the present day Earth setting, some people think these are prequels to Alien (they're not, at least not anymore). Having Aliens on present day Earth just doesn't make any sense, especially when the previous Alien movies took place in the future and in space, and considering the fact that the Aliens have the potential to wipe out the entire human race. To me, having a complete disregard for the continuity of the previous Alien movies makes the AVP movies worst than the Star Wars prequels. Thankfully, both AVP movies have been retconned by Predators and Prometheus.

Other than having the two titled creatures, the AVP movies are nothing like the comic books they're based on. The comics have the fights take place in space, so the door is open for the Colonial Marines. But the movies take place on present day Earth. Who cares about Earth? Outer space is the ultimate escape fantasy. I want to see the Colonial Marines on the big screen again!

The two worst movies involving either Alien or Predator. These movies should never have been made.

Mainly it was Requiem that sucked.

17 Barbie
18 Porky's

This title is acurate because this franchise is a pig sty - whyiseveryusernametaken1234

19 The Swan Princess

Really? THIS movie got 6 sequels? The Swan Princess got 2 sequels in the 90's and then; for some unknown reason, Nest (now Crest Animation) decided to revive the series as a Sofia the First wannabe with 4 sequels with bad CGI reminiscent of Motu Patlu and Mighty No.9-tier voice acting. The worst part of it is that they have plans to make even more shoddy entries in this once-great franchise!
This series should've honestly ended on either the 3rd or 4th movie because after the 4th movie, the franchise jumps the shark by having both Odette and Derek get shoved aside for their new adopted daughter Elise and Odette never turns into a swan ever again! Seriously? Your franchise is named "The SWAN Princess" and your supposed "main heroine" hasn't turned into a swan since the 4th movie! Epic fail, Nest/Crest/Swan Princess Partners/whatever they are called nowadays! Epic fail!
The official website, is no better with the makers bragging about how the franchise ...more - PerfectImpulseX

20 Star Wars

Who put this here. I mean the prequels are bad. But why one of the best franchises on this list? Someone is on drugs.

Star Wars is the crappiest movies in history. It's dumb stuff and lifesavers. The movies are boring and annoying

It's basically random kids going around hitting each other with lightsabers, green screen that makes the backgrounds look extremely fake, multiple action sequences over story, loud sound effects, and overly long run times. Waste of time, don't care what anybody says.

Why is this even on this list? this is the best franchise ever. Just cus it doesn't have sex, or too many cuss words, or cus it was bought by Disney doesn't mean it's a bad franchise. It's really good and still going strong. These people are just plain out crazy.
