Top 10 Movie Franchises That Need To Die

Life isn’t fair. We exist in a movie world where our most desired sequels fester in obscurity for years before seeing the light of day (sometimes never at all) and where cookie-cutter schlock is pumped out ad nauseam. But don’t call me naïve; it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out why this is. To quote Wall Street’s Gordon Gekko “what’s worth doing is worth doing for money.”

Blue Sky Studios’ long-stagnant (but monetarily potent) Ice Age franchise churns out its fourth instalment this week with Ice Age: Continental Driftwhich sails into theaters this Friday. In the spirit of that now-soulless series, let’s take a look at 10 movie franchises that need to die.

Are you ready? Let’s begin.

  1. AdamBrittensays:

    I was originally going to be all “no! I love some of these franchises!” But you raise very valid points. I will admit that I’m excited about the next Pirates flick, but I will agree that it might be time to just let it go.

  2. Jeff Becksays:

    The only one of these I slightly disagree with is Pirates of the Caribbean. I would like to see if they can redeem it after how dull part four turned out, though it could be that it’s just run its course.. As for the rest, I absolutely concur.

    1. AdamBrittensays:

       @Jeff Beck My thoughts, too. And I didn’t even hate the 4th one as much as most people did.

  3. MinimeJer05says:

    I surprisingly thought AWAKENING was the best UNDERWORLD film yet, especially being such a mediocre series to begin with. Also, the FINAL DESTINATION movies are cheesy, but oh so enjoyable.

  4. ChristianLawsays:

    I can agree with all of these, but I will say that I liked Final Destination 5 a lot…it wasn’t too much better, but I thought it was a great (hopeful) ending to the series, definitely a high point of the last 3. Other than that though, yeah, they should trim down the franchises haha

  5. MattDonatosays:

    Some people said that Paranormal Activity 3 was the best PA of all, but I have to disagree.  I loved Paranormal Activity for completely freaking the ever loving bejeesus out of me, but 2 and 3 hardly stacked up.  I totally agree the franchise belongs on this list as it never should have spawned sequels in the first place.  I’m already furious I’ll inevitably shell out more money to watch yet another attempt to cash in on Peli’s success when PA 4 comes out, but I love my horror oh so much.

  6. bexsays:

    resident evil has to potential to be absolutely gr8..but only if it stayed true to res evil 1+ 2 the games, the  gr8 depth in the  back story, set up the mood and the sub plots, characters etc… and where ready to go…but then came the huge let dwn and failure to use gr8 material and reach the franchise potential….the last film was awful, shockingly bad!!! either kill of the franchise and stop beating it dwn or reboot it, but while staying true to the original two games!!! this series could and should have been epic!!!! please don’t ruin it any more but at the same time don’t let it go out like this!!

  7. Solomonsays:

    10 Movies, and not one mention of Saw…? Really? If a series of movies needs to die, It’s Saw.

    1. That franchise has already died.

      1. Matt Nationsays:

        nah – they’re going to be ‘rebooting’ it shortly…

    2. john doesays:

      saw is done bro..

      1. Solomonsays:

        Saw WAS “Dope” after about the 4th installment it got stupid…

      2. mihasays:

        got stupid?
        the story just started to make sense after the 4th movie
        every sequel had a great story behind it and new and gruesome tortures

      3. fiachsidhesays:

        Ironic “got stupid”?
        Because your average Saw fan is an idiot, who actually believes Saw had a good plot. All it was, was torture porn for dumb movie goers, with a convoluted plot that makes dumb people feel as if they watched something intelligent.

    3. It ended alreay. Saw VII The Final Chapter!!

      1. Fernsays:

        That means nothing !!!! Friday the 13th: The Final Chapterhe later film, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

  8. PR0METHEU5says:

    I agree with all of these, great list! I’d toss in the Madagascar films as well. @ Solomon. The Saw series is already finished isn’t it?

    1. peace2388says:

      You can never REALLY tell with slasher movies if they are dead or not look at Halloween, Friday the 13th, and the Nightmare on Elm Streets. How many time did those look like they were finally over? Only to find out they could possess someone’s body, could only truly be killed when their head is cut off, or worst of all by far is that they gets injected with nanobots and comes back from the dead on a spaceship in the future and even then there is nothing to stop them from starting the story over from scratch. Like with Rob Zombies Halloween. but if ever a franchises needed to stay dead it is Saw so I for one agree with Solomon.

  9. Joe Fioresays:

    “Paranormal Activity 2 was more a bland rehash than
    an outright disaster, but that’s hardly call for celebration either. ”

    It’s generally accepted by most fans and critics alike that Paranormal Activity 2 was BETTER than the first film, so that kinda shoots that argument in the foot.

    1. RobDobbssays:

      No, it doesn’t.

    2. Franky J.says:

      Paranormal Activity 2 was unbelievably terrible. It was easily the weakest one in the series.

  10. Koua Xiongsays:

    I agree with every single one. (Although I wouldn’t mind seeing more Resident Evil and Underworld, as I love the characters or Alice and Seline.)

  11. brads87says:

    No fast and furious?

    1. yohoosays:

      no way man!

    2. sloposays:

      The last F&F was the best one! Bring on more Rock!

    3. aye!says:

      the last one F&F was the best i agree

  12. irksays:

    totally agree with Madagascar. god i hate that movie.

    1. TaiZhu312says:

      dude, it’s ice age, NOT Madagascar! The lastest IC ruined everything WHILE the lastest Madagascar is the best one yet!!!

  13. jaescroggssays:

    scary movie , epic movie etc? What about all of those Dance flix? They NEEDS ta DIE!!

    1. Vickysays:

      seriously!!! STEP UP SUCKS!!!! SCARY MOVIE ROCKS!!!

      1. Vicky: No. THey both suck.

    2. Vickysays:

      and totally agree wid resident evil… do they even know what they’re doing now?

  14. Totally agree with your list. Scary Movie should had been called Lame & Crappy Comedy Movie.

    1. Dooshe Nozzlesays:

      And they should have had your witty mind behind its writing.

  15. KNIGHT3000says:

    No Twilight? No Harry Potter? This list SUCKS!

    1. snowleopardsays:

      Those are based on books. The movies will end when the books end. Harry Potter is done and Twilight will be after this next movie.

      1. Bleazsays:

        If only! They’re already planning to reboot Twilight! And the Saw movies as well! As far as Saw goes, the first one was fantastic, second very good as was six. The rest were dire!

      2. josip nigojevićsays:

        if saw goes on alright,i like those movies but if twilight goes on im gonna kill myself

  16. Victor E Sandovalsays:

    The PIECE OF SHIT Resident Evil films NEED TO FUCKING DIE! And Im gonna be honest, so does Millia Jovovich and her dumb ass husband Paul WS Anderson. I FUCKING hate them all!!!! With a burning passion. They piss on the fans of the games and the intellegence of the general audience who watches them. Im tired of it. First off, not only does it not follow the games….AT ALL, but it is lack luster filmmaking at its worst. Its one thing to make a bad movie, but even worse to be persistant with it. Who the that slut think she is, Rambo?! She is NEVER EVER gonna be accepted into pop culture as an action hero. I never hear anyone else mention her.
    Just cuz the first movie wasnt THAT bad, that shoulda be a cue for Anderson to improve but no, he is an incoherent idiot of a film maker that only wants to steal the movie goers’ money and continue making horrible movies. Its no different than stealing.

    1. josip nigojevićsays:

      it angers u cause u play resident evil games and have no life so u go around blackmailing

      1. guestsays:

        Do you even know what blackmailing is, you idiot?

    2. josip nigojevićsays:

      who fucking cares about pop culture u I’m a potty mouth unable to use adult words.

    3. dashsays:

      But Milla Jovovich IS accepted as an action hero. She’s been in loads of action movie roles ever since the Fifth Element, and that’s what she’s known for. She is ABSOLUTELY the premier female action hero.

    4. fire lionsays:

      lol have you watched the video game stories? they are horrible. If they made it exactly like the games then it would be even worse.

      Play resident evil 6 and tell me you did not laugh.

  17. Victor E Sandovalsays:

    And another thing, Millia was NEVER EVER a heroine or a wanna female role model. She just SUCKS HORRIBLY. TO me, there is nothing that can be good about those films.
    Also, Im so happy that the James Bond franchise is no where to be seen on the list. Lets face it, the films are great and enjoyable. I also look foward to watching them everytime I get the opportunity. I think it proves that a franchise with too many sequels can still work.

    1. Steve O'Rourkesays:

      And she has nipples, but no breasts. If she had a kid, it would starve.

    2. Troysays:

      Daniel Craig fucking sucks as 007. Just saying.

    3. devinsays:

      then you must like penis

  18. Goonsays:

    Underworld and Resident Evil must go on forever and ever. The rest can effing die.

    1. josip nigojevićsays:

      i agrre

    2. guestsays:

      They’re going to die at some point, whether you like it or not.

  19. EJDsays:

    why Not Saw?!

    1. Jeremysays:

      It ended already.

  20. Spy Kids, anyone? And with whispers of a potential Toy Story 4, let’s just say I don’t want that franchise to die as much as I’d just like it to rest in peace where it is.

    1. Dimension Films announced in February 2012 that Spy Kids 5 was under talks to begin production possibly later in 2012 with an unknown release date. The original cast is expected to return.

    2. vickysays:

      oh yes spykids needs to die!!!

  21. I enjoyed all of the Underworld movies but I agree with the rest of this list. The Scary movie franchise should have died after they stopped being about horror movies.

    1. Adrian Innesssays:

      I like Beckinsale and Jonovich… If they could find a movie were they could both dress in fetish goth cloths and kick ass I’d be ok with seeing the end of both franchises, until then there are zombies and vampires that need killing.

      1. Female Expendables in pre-production

      2. its gonna be total disaster!

  22. Seansays:

    One word: TWILIGHT.

    1. ItsBeesWhyBeessays:

      Did you hear? they are planning to reboot that already…

    2. DaireConstantineOReillysays:

      it was perfect at One movie not 5, the sequels are soo boring, Twighlight is the best.

    3. Fuck yousays:

      Na twilight is deff the best

  23. doommonkeysays:

    ‘ (being a sucker for zombie myself flicks didn’t help either)’ ? huh?

  24. Chipmunks 2 was redeemed by one thing – the acting of Zac Levi. Agree about Fast and Furious. Expendables [clue’s in the name there!]. Endless re-imaginings of Superman/Spiderman/Batman. Other superheroes and stories are available!!

  25. Gogoboyosays:

    “the something that was the something” writing style needs to die!

  26. Shawnsays:

    All I can say is “kid” movies won’t die. To us they all seem fairly stupid, but to young kids they will watch over and over the dumbest stuff.

  27. I disagree with the Madea part for the simple fact that it seems the writer has no clue about the series.

    Tyler Perry wrote ans still writes stage plays, that is what Madea is. He wrote his first madea stage play way back in 2000, so even though they are being released as films a year apart, it is because he has a back log of material.

    I also disagree with the low ratings his films get. As i have said for years, Whites and African Americans do have a distinction in culture which translates to film/comedy. There is a huge difference between the preference(not racism, but preference) of the reviewers of those films. Some of the comedies my white friends love, me and my black friends hate and in vice versa.

    I dont think the madea movies are great, but there are alot of people would would say they were FAR better than a 38% ratings.

    1. I think that’s silly. I’ve heard of the stereotype that only black people enjoy Madea. While I’m not even going to discuss that further, I will point out that me and my good film buff friends (both white and black), all agree that Madea is one of the worst comedy franchises out there.

      1. just because you and your buddy agree on it doesnt make it true, thats simply your opinion and I believe that the audience demographic of the Madea films speaks for it self.

        i abd my friends watch stuff like Stepbrothers or Ricky Bobby and think they are far worse films than any of the Madea ones.

        also, i never said only black people enjoy Madea, im saying there is cultural disconnect the same way many black people dont listen to country music, but do listen to rap, in vice versa. there are people who blur that line in both directions but not the majority.

      2. My point is not “only black” or “only white” but rather a difference in culture/comedy

        the Madea plays and the films have a majority african american following. It seems that that white people simply do not find them funny the same way black people do.

        That isnt to say a white person couldnt find it funny or that a black person couldnt say it is horrible.

  28. Kellicsays:

    I can agree with all but Pirates. Sorry but I’m still enjoying the series. Transformers was a POS from day one though.

  29. Transformers does NOT need to die. I am enjoying that movie series.

  30. I saw Ice Age 4 and enjoyed it, more than 3

  31. i would say though that afterlife was the weaker instalment in the series, I heard paul does plan to end the franchise with a sixth film (if retribution does well)

  32. Kendallsays:

    AWW i love the scary movie franchise because I think it works. Its stupidity, but isn’t that what people like to see? Pure stupidity. its funny, gt a sense of humor.

  33. speakillkidsays:

    Out of the Underworld films Rise of the Lycans were the only one I liked.
    The Saw franchise needs to DIE, so does the REC franchise. Saw was never good whereas REC had a great first movie, a garbage sequel in REC 2 with annoying teenagers, and now what looks like an even worse sequel with REC 3

  34. ice age 4 sucked big time. agree that Transformers needs to rot….

  35. fairportfansays:

    Chipmunks should have been smothered in its cradle before it managed to escape and nauseate the world.

  36. Kashsays:

    i’d love to stop the Smurfs movie in its tracks…i have a feeling they are gonna milk that sh*t for all its worth, kinda like how they did with the chipmunks.

  37. Final Destination 5 was a good entry to the series. I agree with the rest though.

    1. ArmandDCsays:

      Yep. It made sense once they had the fifth release (at least it made sense to me, all my quandaries from the beginning of the film).

  38. Bettysays:

    Indiana Jones….

  39. josip nigojevićsays:

    resident evil is the best it mustnt die

    1. guestsays:

      Resident Evil is the worst it has to die

  40. lolsays:


    1. There filming two more!

      1. DaireConstantineOReillysays:

        i can here some guy going NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO after reading your coment on fast and furius 6 and 7

    2. mihasays:

      you need to die

      1. Fiachsidhesays:

        Wow miha, you really have a thing for mass produced, Hollywood schlock! You love Saw and Fast and Furious? Do you like anything that is actually well made? You are the reason Hollywood produces so much shit every year.

        The low standards, “just want to turn off my brain” stupid, drooling, lowest common denominator film zombie.

      2. guestsays:

        You said it. The “Turn your brain off” crowd, or as I like to call them, the Herp Derp people, never cease to disappoint me with their complete lack of standards for movies.

      3. HerpDerpPeopleSucksays:

        Actually, the Herp Derp people as you call them, do have standards. Any movie with lots of explosions, gunplay and CGI effects passes as a cinematic masterpiece, regardless of story or character development or the overall quality of the movie. And there are a lot of these people, judging from some of the comments on this page.

      4. MihaMustDiesays:

        Eat shit and die, you idiot!

    3. aye!says:

      fast and the furious is getting better the newest one was awesome

      1. fiachsidhesays:

        Yeah bro! Its so fukin kool! I love to go see F&F movees and drool on myself at the cars and sluts and stuff blowin up!

    4. fire lionsays:


    5. Stuart Brownsays:

      The Fast and Furious movies should have died out a long time ago. They went from being awesome underground street racing movies, to a group of international criminals turned super cops. Anyone who thinks the new F&F movie was the best, was never a true fan of it. They’re the exact reason why this kind of list even needs to be made, they only care about seeing hot girls and explosions, they don’t care about story line, considering they’re too dense to follow one.

  41. Jaysays:

    Great list! Couldn’t agree more.

  42. Ambrussays:

    This list fails. I can understand why some people might not like some of the movies, or all of them, on this list, but come on.. The actors in these movies are making more money then you can hope of making just from their 1 role in each, so maybe you should get on their level before you start blurting out that the franchise they are in needs to die. But whatever makes you all in this online community thing feel better, so be it.

    1. Who gives a shit how much money they make and that proves what exactly?!! They should take all that money and hire SCREENWRITERS instead of vomiting out the same shit every month to turn a buck. Hollowood please die already

  43. NM2000says:

    I think the reason Paranormal Activity turned was that it simply forgot what it was. The first one was vague on details, never “showed” you the ghost or entity, and had a nice build. The bigger budget ones went so far down the path of mythology and actually showing scary monster things that it was just stupid.

  44. Jessie Beesays:

    I love Resident Evil, Underworld, Transformers, and the Pirates movies, but the rest can go. ESP. Paranormal Activity, t was never scary and it never will be.

    1. ArmandDCsays:

      I liked all of ur mentions, but ‘Final Destination’ always had a soft spot in my heart. It felt genius when I was seven years old. 🙂

  45. spgoodmansays:

    An independent film that should have been considered when mentioning “Blair Witch” was one that INSPIRED it – and was heavily lifted from, to say the least. “The Last Broadcast” was marvelous, and had surprises to the end. A public access cable channel show goes out to the NJ Pine Barrens in search of the Jersey Devil, and never returns. An independent filmmaker seeks to uncover what happened to the show’s crew. I leave the rest to you. Why superior to “Blair Witch”? No whiny cast that after a while one really wanted bad stuff to happen to them, if only to finish the film. The only interesting part of BW was the last scene, with the camera on its side. Unfortunately the next film done by the producers of “The Last Broadcast” was the completely awful “Ghosts of Edendale”. Wonderful premise, horrendous acting from a cast that was worse than anything a college director could ever have imagined.

  46. Jason Hallsays:

    Resident Evil is Awesome. Don’t spit on Resident Evil. I’ll be first in line on the fourteenth to see the latest installment. PS: Liked the video games but didn’t love them. Love the movies and Jonavich.

    1. jason hallssays:

      shutup you actual fucking douche. how can u love the films and not the games?

    2. Jésussays:

      Those abominations aren’t worth my spit! They are terrible and will continue to be with the husband/wife duo at the helm. I cannot stand either of them nor the trash they label as Resident Evil. Easily disgraces what made the games are.

    3. guestsays:

      Just what exactly makes the Resident Evil movies “Awesome”?

  47. H3adHunt3rsays:

    Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked was actually a good movie despite all odds,
    It deserves a chance of redemption If It’s follow ups have the great comedy and scriptwriting that the third one had (which caught me by surprise).

  48. Saw?

  49. mihasays:

    your wrong about final destination underworld and scary movie
    final destination became about the deaths it became a dark comedy i think its not scary anymore but still fun to watch
    underworld 3 was a good movie despite the plot being before the predecessors had great visual effects and a few twists in its plot that made it unexpected and great
    scary movie is funny whether they make fun of bad movies or reference the best ones they make it very funny and all the other parodies like vampires suck and disaster movie may not be the most sophisticated of movies but they are funny like hell
    none of these franchises deserve to die

    1. guestsays:

      Yes they do deserve to die

    2. Johnsays:

      I can tell that your taste buds are right up where the sun never shines.

  50. mihasays:


    1. ryansays:

      Because those movies are book based (like harry potter) so then the books end so do the movies..duh

  51. Spellcheckersays:

    Milla, Nighy, Instill, et cetera. Proofreading folks, it’s not just for your junior high final project.

  52. Dygsays:

    No! I don’t want to RE movie to die. Ok. I don’t like RE games. But I like RE movies. because of Milla Jovovich. I watched all the series for her.

  53. SJ22says:

    Wow you let too many movies bother you, there are some really good ones coming out you should go see instead of seeing all these because when you go to see it you’re just pushing for them to make the next one by how great they are still doing at the box office. It’s no skin of my teeth, but why would an adult let kid movie franchise bother them? They are for KIDS, and some kids have favorite movies they with they would make more of than a TV show so what’s the harm?

  54. muffinman.says:

    lol… shrek its up there?

  55. You missed… every super hero movie. Anything based on comic books, actually. I mean, it costs so much to make these movies – they can’t hire someone capable of writing something original?

    1. Really all the A-listers have been done already what’s next ‘Ant man’ ‘the Flash’ ‘Aquaman’ ‘Black Falcon’?!! No.

  56. Justin Ksays:

    Couldn’t have agreed more with these choices. Bravo.

  57. Pandaremiassays:

    Movies are movies and if you do not like em then don’t watch…. They were made because some people actually like them. And those who use their time to a crap like this have no fucking life…. and why am i even bothering

  58. zodsays:

    What about JAMES BOND? They fucking change the fucking actor and don’t expect us to notice, re-tards. Nobody wants to see some british guy dressed as a penguin saving the world from a gay millionary who want’s to destroy it for no reason, at the same time he bangs some hot chicks that are automatically horny for him like magic. And always there’s the gadgets that seem to be comissioned by clairvoyants, “here’s this reading eyeglasses, but within its temple piece there’s a special type of acid strong enough to pass through 10 feet of pure steel, just remove the earpiece and drop it”, and then the movie develops like that was unimportant, butt hen at some point a super-acid will be just what was required to get away from some situation, and luckily enough, he just happened to have some on his reading glasses. “Wow, I that was totally unexpected”, thinks the James Bong fan.

    1. Kyle4says:



    2. Your an idiot. Shut that crap down…. 50 years later and its going strong. No one cares what u think.

  59. Devinsays:

    i kinda like the Resident Evil movies, i bet their gonna make one more. Underworld is ok, kinda hard to keep up with the story. At least RE explained all the movies in the beggining. Pirates, love. Paranormal Activity?? idk im going to wait until they all come out and watch them backwards. Saw is done. Black man/lady movies are stupid, ok who watches those?

  60. Scary Movie 1 and 2 were good, but after that when different producers and writers took it over it went from black comedy to jewish comedy and you just can’t do that; those two styles are so different that they might as well left the franchise in the Wayans brothers hands and started one of their own instead.
    They don’t need to kill the franchise. Just give it back to the ones that started it.

  61. No way man Transformers forever I’ll always wish to transform into an epic and blow shit up and 2 was the best down with the Golden Raspberry round shove up it those idiots who thinks it bad, Roll out!

    1. guestsays:


    2. guestsays:


  62. Two words for you:DIE HARD!!! Not only has it been two DECADES since the first one but they have flipped the story more times than a pancake and Bruce Willis looks like some way too old drill sergeant who refuses to leave the army it’s so pathetic. And no more ‘Big Mommas’ if Martin Lawrence makes one more stupid ass drag movie I’m going to pray his head explodes and it sprays all over the production team. And I REFUSE to live in a universe that would allow anymore ‘Men In Black’ shit or another ‘Indy’ movie please Harrison stop just STOP grow old with some fucking DIGNITY!

    1. fire lionsays:

      MY god this is right DIE hard needs to DIE, hard.

  63. Josh Gothardsays:

    Resident Evil needed to die before it was finished. But they made 100000 horrible movies anyways cause ya’ll keep buying the damn things. STOP IT!! Scary Movie 4 was horrible in a lot of parts. Epic movie was bad. Disaster Movie was the worst of the worst. Date Movie was okay. Superhero movie was awesome. Dance Flick was meh. So yeah they need to step up there game. Madea movies aren’t funny, they are more sad and depressing if anything. Underworld, if it’s as bad as Van Hellsing, is another try hard over the top action that well…tries too hard. And doesn’t have any reason to be action packed.

  64. sveneke60says:

    i actually enjoyed ice age 4 but that can be because it was late and i was corny because it was late (sorry for bad English i’m dutch)

  65. jdguy23says:

    i agree with the list underworld maybe not butcome on people your low on ideas its time to stop and you need to end it its annoying with the crap ideas with some of these

  66. Pam_Lsays:

    I was glad when the “Chucky” franchise finally ran out of steam. IMO, none of those movies should ever have been made.The “Saw” franchise is another one, and also the “Batman” movies have gone far beyond the point where they should have ended. They simply aren’t fun anymore, like the “Harry Potter” movies gradually went from being interesting kids movies with a bit of a dark side to deadly serious and depressing..

  67. Your List Is Bad And You Should Feel Bad

  68. Liamsays:

    the rest definetly, especcially scary movie which shouldve ended at 3, but resident evil i believe has gotten even better as the series goes, afterlife introduced us to new characters and had me thinking about a new one as soon as the credits came

    How about Star Wars? Apparently there are three more in the works.

  70. dereksays:

    I would agree to Transformers but I am determine they keep making them until they make a good one!

  73. WhiteBoy7thstsays:

    none of them should die

  74. Abissays:

    I so wish I could agree…

    But seriously!

    Most of the things you said are gold. except…

    Resident evil? Seriously? One of the most likeable fantasy franchises EVER! Alice (Jovovich) is simply WONDERFUL, despite what she is beeing given to work with, and a lot of other characters in the movie were really likeable too (like Ohded Ferh and Spencer Locke and…). I admit it had a relatively bad day with “afterlife” but does it need to die? HELL, NO! It needs to get even better and get 2 more sequels until the forces of evil are finally obliterated and a new hope rises for Humanity. Then, it could end properly! But it has still so much to give!

    And Underworld cannot end like that, not before Selene reunites with her family and there is an ending to war. There should be at least one more movie (2 would be understandable also) where that happens and some form of peace is finally established between all races included (Humans, lycans and vamps). This is how it should end!

    And ICE AGEs were all from good to wonderful! Of course they should end now, but all 4 episodes were fine by me.

    Ah, and paranormal activity, although I haven’t seen any movie yet, has been geting good critics for the 4th sequel, although maybe it should stop here.

    As for all the others (especially Final Destination), I 100% agree.

    1. Sorry, but you must of never played a Resident Evil game in your life. The devs and story writers raped the original story to make a pile of crap.

  76. findgrettasays:

    Fast and Furious “movies” (car commercials) are seriously not on this list?

  77. Don’t forget the X-men movies. Killing off Professor X and Scott Summers. Having that hag Halle Berry bitch that she won’t be the later ones unless they gave her more screen time even thou she is a poor actress. Famke Janssen as Jean Grey was a absolute joke. She looks older then Patrick Stewart and you could see the black hair in her roots and eyes brows. Sorry, but Devs and Story Writers need to stay with the original story and not make up their own shit.

    1. cameronsays:

      dont speak so soon there continuing that series with the wolverine following up xmen 3 the last stand but instead of wolverine being on the team he splits off over to japan back to the comic days where he trains to be a samurai and the villain is the silver samurai iit comes out 2013 sometime in july which im excited for

    2. someonesays:

      there is also going to be an X-Men: Days of Future Past, witch will see the original cast (X-Men, X2 & The Last Stand) alongside the new cast from First Class, it has something to do with time travel and Professor X (Patrick Stewart & James McAvoy) and Magneto (Ian McKellen & Michael Fassbender) will be both played by both actors.

    3. fire lionsays:

      I am going to step away from keyboard after you just dissed xena onatop.

  78. oi! take ur hand away from Underworld! I’m in the 3rd part of it, im one of the extras :)) SO HANDS OFF!!!!!!
    I so totally disagree with 6 out of 10! u got such a wrong movies, there are worst much worst the that!

  79. KILL THE TWILIGHT! And Dance movies! And vomit like Saw..

  80. scary movie 3 was the only one that was funny. the other’s were just plain stupid.

  81. M. Stonesays:

    Movies like Alvin & The Chimpunks or Tranformers never had to exist, sorry for kids and Michael Bay fans. But sagas like Underworld, Resident Evil, Final Destination Or Paranormal Activity deserves their oportunity, PA is ready to fall soon, the thing i expected in 2020 is something like Paranormal Activity X, occurs in a residence in a spacial base XD…Fast And Furios needs to die NOW!!!!…

  82. cameronsays:

    i hope scary movie never die i love it cant get enough im going to see 5

  83. Hollywood. It’s dead. Nuff said.

  84. Ivansays:

    I’d ass Saw, American Pie franchise and Star Wars.

  85. Common Sensesays:

    overall, this is complete BULL SHIT

  86. mustdisqusssays:

    fast and the furiouszzZZZzzzzz…..

  87. Sam Tsays:

    Really??? Resident Evil is number one? I FREAKING LOVE RESIDENT EVIL. I don’t agree with that at all.

  88. Nunya Businesssays:

    The first two scary movie movies were funny, but like you said the second two (and seemingly the fifth, yes, there’s going to be a fifth, hold your crying for the end) were just bad. I think it had alot to do with the Wayans leaving, it took a different direction and only spoofed a couple of movies at once, they weren’t even strictly speaking horror movies like war of the worlds.

  89. Fuck yousays:

    I dont agree with resident evil. I LOVe all the movies. Thought i do agree that the movies are not similiar wih th game. Wish they were.

  90. Carosays:

    Nothing about the Fast and Furious movies? I suppose there really aren’t enough of them yet.

  91. Burn A Koran A Daysays:

    Agree with all except:

    Pirates (These are great movies, stfu)
    Underworld (These are also decent movies, except for the last one, but the redeeming quality is that they’re different, so again, STFU)
    Resident Evil is debatable…..but still STFU.

    1. YouSuckBurnsays:

      No, you STFU.
      BTW, your name sucks.

      1. Burn A Koran A Daysays:

        So does your mom, but you don’t see me complaining. Could be because I gave her a dime and got back change.

      2. Burn A Koran A Daysays:

        Your mom sucks. Only woman in the world I can give a dime and get back change.

  92. Morley Robertsonsays:

    It’s Bill “Nighy”…not “NIgh”.

  93. katkatkatsays:

    stop reading after seeing the PotC being in this list….gtfo sir you are drunk

  94. dontetheishsays:

    nah i dont like tyler perry and ish (i am black) lol but a lot of other black ppl actually like that crap so i guess it shouldnt be going out like its doing good in box offices so I’m ok guess

  95. Are you kidding me? Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers need to be off this list NOW!!

  96. Jakupsays:

    silent hill and resident evil need to die. Scary movie rock!!!!

  97. Die Hard needs to end, as they make more, they get worse, in my opinion, Die Hard and Die Hard 2 are THE best, with ‘With A Vengeance’ not far behind, and ‘Live Free’ was even okay, but they screwed it over with the 14A rating, and now Die Hard 5 was missing EVERYTHING that we love about the franchise

  98. Khalidsays:

    Resident Evil 6 will be the last Resident Evil film, the last one will have all the characters from all movies, and hopefully it will release next year,

  99. All these movies need ar zombies be cause every movie is better whit zombies

  100. somedudesays:

    All of them need to die. Wipe the slate clean and start over with some original ideas instead of endlessly churning out sequels, reboots, and remakes.

  101. poopscooptittyflicksays:

    Resident Evil has one final movie that will arrive September 2014. Then your wish will come true.

  102. You are hit and miss with me. Underworld and Pirates movies are awesome. SO I cannot agree with you. I do like the Resident Evil movies as well. Transformers are hit and miss. But the ones I 150% agree with you on are Scary movies and Madea, or really ANY movie that features any man dressing up in a fat-suit to be a woman. ANY man, Eddie Murphey, Tyler Perry, Martin Lawrence…all of them JUST NEED TO EFFING STOP.

    Scary Movie-movies cater to people with slow senses of humor. “Oh..haha, he farted.” “Oh, funny, got hit in the junk.” “Oh, it’s funny that he slept with Lindsay Lohan because she’s nasty.” Anyone with a high-brow sense of humor would rather sit on a handful of thumb-tacks than go through that shit. They’re not spoof movies, even, they’re NEARLY plagiarism with references to current pop culture. If you want to see Spoof movies, rent Young Frankenstein or Blazing Saddles. UGH, those movies make me so mad. How can there be so many tasteless people in the world that they make money?!


  104. Trevor Shelorsays:

    And no one thought aout the Fast and Furious mess? What are we up to now? 24? 25? Hopefully, the next onw will be subtitled “The Apology”…for ever getting to theaters in the first place.

  105. chicksmansays:

    All the Underworld movies were great especially the last one same with Resident Evil the last one was nice

  106. I didn’t even read this for 2 reasons. I love Resident Evil and Scary Movie, so F**K YOU!

    1. F**K YOU Purple Oreossays:

      You must of read this article in order see that Resident Evil and Scary Movie were on this list.
      F**K YOU!

  107. tevrasays:

    the cheerleader movies should be in this list

  108. Jennifersays:

    Agree on all points.

  109. tman418says:

    “Single-handedly setting a fire under the found footage genre that oddly never took off with the mammoth success of The Blair Witch Project”

    Am I one of the few people who found “The Blair Witch Project” to be the lamest “horror movies” ever! I was not scared or “in suspense” when I saw it. “Paranormal Activity” was great though! And the prequel.

    “Note to Hollywood big-wigs: every time you need to turn to prequel territory to extend your franchise it means you’re just distilling your own urine and calling it spring water.”

    Damn right! “Rise of the Lycans” was the most pointless prequel I have ever seen! There is absolutely no new information gained by watching that film. At the end of the first film, you already know this:
    1. The lycans used to be slaves to the vampires.
    2. Lucian had relations with a female vampire, Sonja
    3. Sonja was the daughter of the brutal, anti-Lycan vampire Victor.
    4. Sonja got pregnant by Lucian
    5. Victor put his daughter to death for getting impregnated by a vampire.
    6. Lucian led a rebellion against Victor for this, and that’s how the war started.

    NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING new was gained by watching this film.

  110. Wayne Carlton Winquistsays:

    Since you bashed about half of the franchises I like on this list AND failed to include a bunch of franchises far worse than even your worst offender, I hope you’ll refrain from future installments. I respect your opinion, but I won’t agree with it.

    (And yes, I’ll go on record defending one of them: I can understand people disliking the Resident Evil franchise, especially for the choices they made between the game and film franchises, and I can respect them. Putting it below both Alvin and the Chipmunks AND Scary Movie? That alone is a huge unfortunate and unforgivable error.)

  111. Overseer76says:

    I don’t follow the series, but I keep seeing new versions of The Land Before Time. Waitaminit… Wikipedia says they stopped making new movies at #13 and was followed by a television series. They say the animation company shut down, but I’m still suspicious…

  112. Prophetesays:

    Ok I guess I need to be “that guy”. All you in the “supreme movie race” need to calm down. Because you don’t like a certain franchise doesn’t make it shit. It makes it your opinion. Everyone has one. So just because the first saw movie was good and f&f 6 was actually good (surprisingly. I dislike f&f) doesn’t make me a mass Hollywood media consumer. So to the point. To all those talking about the “turn off your brain crowd” and the “fact” the because we saw one movie made Hollywood spew out more shit, unless your getting paid for your “input” or jizz out gold nuggets, you should probably take a seat. Fuck that was a lot of quotation marks.

  113. fire lionsays:

    I agreed with everything until Resident evil. they just need to get back the quality of the first one.

    I cant believe you didnt mention saw or hostel.

  114. Coreysays:

    Fast and Furious….enough said. Oh and Wrong Turn, those movies are absolutely terrible.

  115. Petersays:

    I think the SAW Franchise needs to go away too, I mean, as clever as the first movie was with giving the victims a right to choose their fate was, now that’s all it comes down to is how clever and gruesome they can make the traps the victims are in.

  116. Martín Cruzsays:

    Call me what you want, but I think that we don’t need another Batman movie…

  117. Joe Fioresays:

    Most people agree that Paranormal Activity 2 was better than the first.

  118. JustDumbsays:

    This is just dumb! If you don’t like something, don’t watch it!
    How arrogant and stupid is it that you want things you don’t like to go away despite millions going to cinemas and enjoying them!

  119. Fernsays:

    I agree Alvin & Final Destination Must DIE!!!

  120. Fernsays:

    I thought Nightmare on Elm Street should’ve been on the list.

  121. jinsays:

    Underworld is a good series. Everything else I agree with.

  122. Rivetheadsays:

    You also forgot Step Up, Fast & Furious, Star Wars, and Oceans (in case they get any ideas).

  123. Razorsfurysays:

    Transformers doesn’t need to die, it just needs to not have idiot bay producing and directing.

  124. Red Tedsays:

    Thank God critics dont decide for me. This is probably a critic who believes cRAP to be a relevant art form

  125. Frankenstiensays:

    Underworld and Resident Evil are fun plain and I’ll pay for that fun. I’ll admit the latest Underworld was “underwhelming” though. Pirates was also fun but I it’s losing steam. I’ll agree with the rest but if people still want to pay to see them that is their business. They won’t get my money is all.

  126. Graham Martinsays:

    what about “the fast and furious”? Its up to about 6 sequels now. That needs to stop.

  127. I am wolfsays:

    Underworld. I still have my mostly-complete set of Werewolf: the Apocalypse books. I’d rather play that than watch those rather uninspiring films.
