There's nothing I love better than when a really great movie because a movie franchise – as long as it doesn't suck, of course. Actually, that's a lie, because I love plenty of franchises that get a little iffy somewhere in the middle, but still start and end strongly. Others, however, are awesome all the way through! Some consist only of two or three movies, others have five or more. You can see which is which by checking out the list of stellar movie franchises I put together below!
1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Price: $90.69 at amazon.com
The LOTR trilogy is, in my estimation, the most stellar movie franchise ever. It's also my very, very favorite. I have two sets of the trilogy, the regular version and the extended version, and I went nutso when the flicks were in theatres. I've seen them goodness knows how many times, love the casting, own the soundtracks – do you see why there's just no room in my head for Twilight?
