I started to make a list of my favourite film franchises because the majority of my favourite movies are part of a series. After browsing through the list of recognized franchises on Box Office MojoWhen the top 10 were finally decided upon, I felt that a few franchises were being left out, so I expanded the list to include 25 titles. A bunch of these titles have been a part of childhood and teenage years, which meant they needed to be listed and not excluded.

If you know me, either through my blog or in real life, you already know my top four favourite franchises and don’t even need to scroll down to the bottom. People often question my taste in movies, and this franchise list will further prove that I seem to have little to no love for amazing films. I may get a lot of flack for this, but I’m okay with no including such box office legends like Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Fast & Furious on this list. The only other defence I have in regards to excluding these series is sometimes you love certain movies/characters, and sometimes you don’t.

There are a few films on the list that may surprise, while others just may make you roll your eyes. Here is my list of Top 25 favourite film franchises with my favourite film listed. Feel free to leave your favourites in the comments section.
