  • Greatest Movie Franchise of All Time

    Poison Ivy and I was debating this earlier at supper, and have narrowed it down to two: Rambo or Rocky. We have yet to come to an agreement. She also likes the Fast and Furious franchise... We both think Smokey and the Bandit gets an honorable mention, but the sequels are too weak to be a contender.

    What say you? What is the Greatest Movie Franchise of all time? Not necessarily the one that made the most money, but the one they'll still be playing in 40 years because they have the 'it' factor.

    Well, like it or not, the Star Wars franchise has been around since 1977 and shows no signs of stopping, especially since the rights are now owned by Disney.

      Well, the best Rambo was the last one as for rocky the 4th was obviously the best but the first few where also good so I say Rocky.

      As far as Franchises go. Its not Star Wars or Lord of the Rings but Indiana Jones that beats out both those.

      Back to the future was good but, the third one was horrible.

      If you absolutely had to twist my arm, its a close finish with MIB and Man with no Name coming out on top just by a hair.

      And sitting by desolate streams;
      World losers and world forsakers,
      On whom the pale moon gleams.

              Not necessarily in this order...

                Listen any joker that can get Ruskies on their side should run for president. Oh.

                Seriously, great choices. Rocky was a classic. Being from Philly clearly biases my judgement. One time my flight back to Jolly ol england was overbooked (I actually lived there for a few god awful years!) I took the free first class ticket to hold off and go the next day. So did two English natives, now great friends. Anyhow, we drank and had a good time at the expense of US Air. The next day I took them on the quick tour of Philly; cheese steaks and the art museum steps were on the obvious to do lists. It snowed and we saw the Rocky statue.

                After arriving back in England the Rocky Balboa movie was released and we went to see that movie in Mancester, England after watching "football" (yawn). It was pretty cool.

                Being nerdy, I also like the star wars, but only the original; that new sh*t is horrible, for the most part.

                Spencer actually like Jaws... it worries me...

                  Not Exactly a Franchise

                  Not exactly a Franchise, but one has to consider all of Eastwood's classic westerns from the "Good The Bad and the Ugly" all the way through to "Unforgiven". Just good cowboy stories.

                    Gout mentioned this one and I'll agree with both of you. It's actually referred to as the man with no name trilogy and includes A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good the Bad and the Ugly. The character in Unforgiven has a family and a name (William Munny). Unforgiven is great but not part of the trilogy.

                      Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Terminator, and Rocky are all hard to beat. Surprised nobody has mentioned 007 though...
                      The first thing scripture tells us about man is that we're made in the image of God. The second thing it says is that man should have dominion over the fishes of the sea.

                          The Star Wars series and Indiana Jones are both excellent. Dirty Harry ranks up there. Clint's spaghetti group are personal favorites. Can't believe you youngsters haven't mentioned the 007 group of movies, the Sean Connery were the best, IMHO, but most very good.

                          Not exactly a franchise in my mind, but most of us baby boomers grew up with John Wayne, some are very average and some classics; True Grit, The Cowboys and the Shootist were three of his best. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence also very good.
