Re: Best Movie in a Series

Nice choices. I liked how you added extras, I just haven't seen all of the movies in each series.

Here's actually two extras I added:
Rambo - First Blood (haven't seen Rambo [2008])
Final Destination - Original

Also, you should check out some of the movies that you haven't seen (well maybe not Twilight, but I still thought it was alright)

Thanks for posting!

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Nice choices as well as the franchises you've added. Though I gotta ask: Why do you hate The Hunger Games?

Re: Best Movie in a Series

I have to disagree about the first avenger being the best movie in the mcu. Iron man is a much better film in my opinion

Re: Best Movie in a Series

I think Captain America is a much more interesting character and First Avenger in general has a much more original and creative story. The action is very inspired too.

That's not a knock on Iron Man though, which is a really good movie.

Re: Best Movie in a Series

I respect your opinion but i disagree. I feel that Cap was really watered down compared to his inspiring counterpart in the comics, he was so boring and i felt the origin story was rushed. But that's just my opinion

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Batman - Batman Begins
Spider-Man - Spider-Man 2
Superman - Man of Steel
Shrek - Shrek 2
Toy Story - Toy Story 3

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Nice choices a lot of ones that were spot on. However, Toy Story 2 would be my least fav despite still loving that one.

Re: Best Movie in a Series

I'm not really a big fan of the Toy Story movies. I've liked all three but, other than the second one, I haven't been really impressed by any of them.

Re: Best Movie in a Series

That's fine. It's actually my favourite trilogy and some of my favourite movies of all time.

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Nice picks!

Re: Best Movie in a Series

I don't care for series, in general. Typically I haven't seen more than 1 or 2.

Shrek - 1st 2 are about equal
Rocky - Original, but only saw the first 2
Austin Powers - 1st 2 are about equal and not great

Others:
Star Trek TOS cast: IV - The Voyage Home
Godfather - 1
Before - Before Sunrise just above Before Sunset
Terminator - Only saw 1st 2, about equal
Alien - Only saw 1st 2, about equal and just OK.
Back to the Future - Original, but only saw the first 2
Karate Kid - Back to the Future - Original, but only saw the first 2 (2nd was awful)
2001 was great, 2010 stunk

Donald Trump is the weak man's vision of a strong man.

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Halloween - Original
Austin Powers - The Spy Who Shagged Me
Shrek - Shrek 2
Evil Dead - Evil Dead II
Mad Max - The Road Warrior
Madagascar - Madagascar 3
Rocky - Rocky III

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Nice picks! Those all you seen?

Re: Best Movie in a Series

Thanks! ...No, I've seen a whole lot more, but with some series no 1 movie really stands out to me, like:

The Batman movies
The Avengers movies
The Mission Impossible movies
The X-Men movies
The Friday the 13th movies
The Nightmare on Elm St movies


And in some cases, I've only seen the original, like:

Child's Play
Pirates of the Caribbean
Kung Fu Panda
Die Hard


And in some cases, I've only seen 2 movies in the series:

Scream 1 & 2
Alien & Aliens
Terminator 1 & 2
Ghostbusters 1 & 2
Jurassic Park 1 & 3
The Godfather 1 & 2
Jaws 1 & 3


However, I did think of some more "bests" I can add:

Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back
Star Trek - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring
Hunger Games 2 (although 1 is just about as good)
I love all the pre-1985 James Bond movies (I stopped watching them after The Living Daylights) but You Only Live Twice and Diamonds are Forever are 2 of my personal favorites
Superman 1 & 2 are superior to all the other Superman movies, in my opinion


Re: Best Movie in a Series


Thanks! ...No, I've seen a whole lot more, but with some series no 1 movie really stands out to me, like:

The Batman movies
The Avengers movies
The Mission Impossible movies
The X-Men movies
The Friday the 13th movies
The Nightmare on Elm St movies
So the original from each of those series are your favourite?


And in some cases, I've only seen the original, like:

Child's Play
Pirates of the Caribbean
Kung Fu Panda
Die Hard
For most of those I definitely recommend you check the other ones out!


And in some cases, I've only seen 2 movies in the series:

Scream 1 & 2
Alien & Aliens
Terminator 1 & 2
Ghostbusters 1 & 2
Jurassic Park 1 & 3
The Godfather 1 & 2
Jaws 1 & 3
Some of those like Alien and Terminator are where the first two are the best, but I do recommended movies like Scream 4 and Jurassic World since they're closest to being as good as the original for both franchises.


However, I did think of some more "bests" I can add:

Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back
Star Trek - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring
Hunger Games 2 (although 1 is just about as good)
I love all the pre-1985 James Bond movies (I stopped watching them after The Living Daylights) but You Only Live Twice and Diamonds are Forever are 2 of my personal favorites
Superman 1 & 2 are superior to all the other Superman movies, in my opinion

Glad you remembered some as well as the additionals you put in there ;). Cathcing Fire may be the better movie, but IDK I just like the first Hunger Games movie better. Superman 1 and 2 are great films and easily the best of the series which just range from being decent to bad.
