Sorry if this thread has been made before, free to close if it has.

I was wondering what your guys favourite film franchise/s are.

The only ones that spring to my mind at the moment are:

*Batman.
*Jurassic park.
*James bond.
*Star Wars.

Will add when I think of more. :)

I enjoyed films more when the word franchise had more to do with fast food outlets rather than making a movie sequel. I absolutely hate franchises :mad: Sully's the value of the content for me.

So, I'll give you a weird answer. Here's some movies that sequels/franchises tarnished my opinion of:

Alien
The Matrix
Bourne Identity
Terminator
Star Wars (sullied by episodes 1, 2 &3)
Marvel Universe (milked to death).

Agree with a couple of previous users, the James Bond films are the gift that keeps on giving (apart from Quantum of Solace).

I'd have to add the fast and furious films as well, some crappy moments but they feed my petrolhead cravings! :D

Hmmm.

Star Wars leaps and bounds above the rest.
Harry Potter
Lord of the Rings
Original TNMT
Not sure if you could classify it as a franchise but the Blood & Ice Cream trilogy definitely is one of my favorites.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Trilogy. Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End.
Edgar Wright directed them all. Simon and Edgar wrote them all.

I think it's properly called The Cornetto Trilogy. Shaun of the Dead is brilliant, Hot Fuzz comes a close 2nd but Worlds End was, frankly, a bit pants IMO.

Lol. Cornetto (homer drool) I'm not a massive Simon Pegg fan but loved him in Shaun of the Dead. Hot fuzz and Worlds End was ok for me.

Marvel Cinematic Universe is my favorite film franchise, because the movies with lesser-known superheroes like Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther are just as good as Iron Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.

Say what you will about Marvel movies being "milked to death" but there is no other film franchise, to my knowledge, with such a wide variety of characters and stories that continue to receive both positive audience and critic reviews.
