    lol, wtf is with the placement!? "Twilight" is higher than "Rambo"?

    Erm, I'll probably feel silly when this is answered, but what is Millenium again?

    The Swedish Millennium trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest), and since it's talka bout a franchise I'd assume they've included the american remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as well.

    Oh yeah!

    Those films were all pretty good, with the original being great and the remake being...maybe great?

    2 and 3 get a bad rap, but I thought they turned out well despite the fact their stories feel more designed to fit a novel instead of a movie.

    Some of the choices on this list baffle me, like how "Police Academy" has a higher rating than "Highlander". I mean, I kind of get "Twilight" being there as it's at least fresher on peoples minds and struck a chord with a specific audience, but has anyone actually watched all of the "Police Academy" movies? Didn't the last one only gross like 100k in the box office? The "Highlander" movies weren't great, but at least they were staples of childhoods.

    AND WHY THE F@CK IS "CARNOSAUR" NOT THERE!?

    I suspect the Hobbit pulled down LotR's average and Fantastic Beasts did the opposite to Harry Potter.

    I thought "Fantastic Beasts" was one of the weaker entries in that franchise.

    I'm surprised "Bourne" got a higher ranking than the MCU, especially as the last two entries got middling receptions.

    Seriously? All the Harry Potter movies, except maybe Deathly Hallows, didn't do the books any justice at all. They were horrendous.

    At least they know how to build upon a conflict.

    My issue with "Fantastic Beasts" is that the heroes spent most of the movie away from the primary conflict and when they finally confront the villain, he gets taken down like a little bitch...We're supposed to take this guy seriously as the main antagonist for the sequel, but not even Kylo Ren got punked like that.

    I don't think any of the Harry Potter movies are great though, just serviceable based on memory. They had more interesting environments, if anything.

    "Mad Max 2" and "Fury Road" are considered genre masterpieces, while the first one is also a cult classic. "Mad Max 3" is the only one people seem iffy on, but it's not necessarily a hated movie. I wouldn't have thought it to be #1 though.

    And am I the only one a little peeved that horror franchises were not part of this list? The horror genre practically invented franchises.
