There have been a multitude of great movie franchises throughout history and everyone seems to have a favorite. These film series have produced some of the highest acclaimed films of all time and have become legendary. There is always a need for the next great franchise in the film industry, there are many great film series but there are 3 that have always stood out to me and left a lasting impression.
3. Back to the Future
Back to the Future broke the mold when it comes to film making. These films were groundbreaking and changed the way films are made to this day. Back to the Future is one of the few film franchises that was able to make every film even better than the next. Back to the Future II is a top ten film of all time in my opinion. I love and cherish these films and I can go back and watch them anytime.
2. Harry Potter
Harry Potter was to me what Star wars was to children of the 70s. I absolutely LOVE Harry Potter, I have read all the novels and seen the films more times than I could count and each time I walk away with a smile on my face. From the first film to the eighth, each one brings its own different charm on screen. That is what truly makes this franchise legendary. The ability to go movie to movie with a different tone each time and pull it off with success is unheard of. Harry Potter is a legendary franchise and its legacy will live on forever.
1. The Godfather
The mobster/crime drama is probably my favorite genre to watch but i'm not sure why. I remember the first time I watched The Godfather, I was mesmerized by the way these criminals could do whatever they pleased with little consequence. Marlon Brando's performance in the original film is arguably a top 5 performance of all time and Al Pacino is stunning as always. If you gave me the option to watch any film I wanted, The Godfather would beat any film out by far. These films are truly the work of legend and must be forever cherished.
