Friday The 13th. I love that franchise.

MCU. The crossover of characters and stories and the consistency Marvel has done it with through 10 years is unparalleled.

^^agreed. most franchises will run for maybe 4 or 5 years before relaunching and using the nostalgic force for traction but marvel's been consistent for damn 10 years! no time off and is still at high quality.

but besides marvel, its very likely star war then possibly harry potter.

Star Wars with MCU 2nd.

I enjoy the overall epic feeling of watching a Star Wars movie more. Thats how I would explain it. Feels like an event each time.

At least say the DC Animated franchise, there's some solid films in there.

On that note, there's hints that Afleck doesn't want out now.

1. Lord of the Rings - Pretty easily. I love Tolkien's works and despite the movies being no where near as good as the books they are great nonetheless.

2. MCU- Don't really need to explain.

3. Star Wars - Used to be my #2 until the MCU became what it is. Stock continually falling thanks to the new Disney films. The OT will always be amazing though.

LOTR is my number 1. Love those films. Best world building in all of cinema.

1. Planet of the Apes
2. Godzilla
3. Gamera

That's a bit clear cut. Then I'd probably do a mix up of cheese movies (like those with El Santo), good horror franchises (Evil Death, Alien), good epic movies (like Lord of the Rings), good action movies (like Mad Max), Rocky would likely be top 10 and I'd add fun adaptations (like Hellboy) to the mix. Not quite top 10: Terminator, Harry Potter, MCU, Matrix.

Quan: "This would be tough for me..." Its easy for the top one but a top ten is something altogether different. Your attempts at trolling leave something left to be desired.

So many lists and so Little love for Alien and Planet of the Apes erm

1. MCU - Self explanatory. I'm too much of a Spidey fanboy to not back this 100%.
2. Lord of the Rings - Tolkien world building is top notch.
3. Alien - This was tough. I wanted to include one horror franchise in my top 5, and it was difficult for me to include this over Hellraiser, but it ended up winning since Hellraiser honestly only has two quality films. I do overally prefer the concept of Hellraiser, but that franchise has been killing itself for some time.
4. Nolan Batman Franchise - These and Spiderman 2 have the best storylines and villains in super hero movies to this day. Thanos was great, but I prefered Doc Ock and Joker over him.
5. Matrix - It's a classic I grew up with. I hope they continue it someday.

tie between MCU and Star Wars at the moment id love for DC to get in there also but they have a ways to go

Honorable mentions:

Dark Knight Trilogy
Lord of the Rings
Terminator (1&2)
Jurassic Park

Great top 3.

MCU def for #1. I'd like to add Harry Potter. Love Mission Impossible especially because of last 3 in series. James Bond. Dark Knight.

I'd also add Planet of the Apes, Indiana Jones & Evil Dead to my list, I'm sure there's many more to add.

MCU franchise: Just all round awesome fantasy and action. Aside from a very few clunkers (Dr. Strange, IM2, CA), the quality is very high and the overall universe is, naturally engrossing and more-ish.

Paranormal Activity: Not sure if it's an on-going franchise any more, but it was a brilliantly executed series of inter-linked horror films as well as a few sort of stand-alone-but-related films (Tokyo Nights and The Marked Ones).

Lord of The Rings: The original phenomenal fantasy epic. Just immense re-watchability and quality. I make a point of watching the trilogy at least once every couple of years. I think it counts as a franchise, given that The Hobbit movies are basically another dip into the same realm ...

James Bond: Cheesy and even cringe-y originally and very dull during the Pierce Brosnan-era, but reinvigorated with Daniel Craig. Just a brilliant franchise that can overcome changes in cultural tastes, political context and even new, lean and polished rivals (The Bourne Identity).

Darth Thor
^ I liked Dr. Strange.
