  • Well, ain't we?

  • This is a contentious one, but hear us out.

  • Captain Kirk has the utmost confidence in me since this beloved franchise first ventured onto the big screen in 1979 with Star Trek.

  • We've gotten over a dozen films, many of them great, but that being said from 1989 to 2002 the franchise saw more misfires than cinematic successes.

  • 2000 TEUs Nemesis Felt like a nail in the coffin has been an honor.

  • The honor was mine, captain.

  • But J.

  • J.

  • Abrams Reboot has given us three solid films back to back.

  • It was logical to cultivate multiple options, logical but unnecessary.

  • They may not all be equal, but operating at this level of quality, it's hard to imagine the franchise ever truly backsliding into overtly rotten territory.

  • Number nine.

  • The X Men franchise.

  • Help to one with You might have thought Whoever said I wanted you here We're going to be talking about not just the core X Men films, but the solo character spinoffs as well.

  • Because, like Marvel, Fox developed their franchise into a cinematic universe.

  • There's no denying that The X Men franchise started strong with both to thousands X Men and X two X Men United, delighting fans and casual cinema goers alike.

  • Unfortunately, the franchise took a nosedive with the threequel and first solo Wolverine film.

  • Thankfully, starting with first class in 2011 the property rebounded, nailing their solo efforts for characters like Deadpool and Logan.

  • No, you know the drill.

  • It's just a shame about the misfires X Men, Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix.

  • Or we would have been able to give this a higher ranking.

  • Did you hear what the kids were calling?

  • Do I want to know?

  • Yeah, Phoenix It's cool, right?

  • No bird that rises from the dead.

  • Number eight, The James Bond franchise It's not impossible to speak in broad strokes about a property that spanned over half a century, or you'd be surprised amount of wear and tear that was honored down the field.

  • The James Bond franchise has seen its ups and downs, but across its colorful and diverse history, there have been few low points lower than during the tenure of Pierce Brosnan post GoldenEye and few more consistently high than that of Daniel Craig.

  • To be clear, we're not blaming or crediting either actor, just using them as time stamps won't I Need you back.

  • I never left.

  • Even the so called misfires like Quantum of Solace Inspector, are far above the franchise average, making this most recent chapter in James Bond history a real standout.

  • You're a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr Bond number seven.

  • The Fast and the Furious franchise.

  • When the Fast and the Furious hit theaters in 2001 Critical reception was lukewarm, but it was a massive hit with movie goers.

  • Was had without Vin Diesel.

  • However, the sequel felt empty while Tokyo Drift felt like a last lap.

  • DNF 2009.

  • Fast and Furious was another critical flop, but a necessary stepping stone and getting the gang back together to embark on bigger and better cinematic adventures.

  • Sure you wanna do this?

  • A lot has changed from Fast five on.

  • It's been one high octane edge of your seat ride after another.

  • I wanna get this money thing.

  • Though Paul Walker's absence was felt in the fate of the Furious, this franchise appears to still have plenty of fuel in the tank.

  • Get out of there, I'm working on it, Stopped working on it and do it.

  • Number six.

  • The D C.

  • Extended universe.

  • When D C launched their own cinematic universe in 2013 they had some serious catching up to Dio.

  • After all, the M C.

  • U was already seven films in including their first Avengers crossover Unfortunately, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel proved divisive.

  • And 2016 releases, Batman versus Superman and Suicide Squad did not salvage the situation.

  • Oh, you left me in a black hole of rage and confusion.

  • Thank goodness, then, that the following year, Patty Jenkins brought us the excellent Wonder Woman.

  • You keep doubting yourself, Diana.

  • No, I don't.

  • Those guys, they're gonna be just fine.

  • Number five.

  • The Toy Story franchise Toy Story was a film without precedent to infinity on Beyond.

  • It set the bar impossibly high, with a tight narrative that's hard to match and near impossible to best.

  • And yet Pixar pulled it off twice.

  • Now, Woody, he's been my pal for as long as I can remember.

  • He's brave like a cowboy should be and kind and smart.

  • But the thing that makes Woody special is he'll never give up on you ever.

  • Toy Story three was the first film in the franchise to drop from 100% to 99% on rotten tomatoes.

  • But many outlets called it the best yet, much like how Toy Story two was called an improvement on the original.

  • Who Am I to break up?

  • The Roundup gang?

  • This franchise is a testament to what filmmakers could do when they use each sequel to dive deeper into characters and themes rather than just roll out another story.

  • Don't leave toys behind Buzz.

  • Yeah, but you're actually not now, Not ever.

  • Number four.

  • The Mad Max franchise When George Miller unleashed Mad Max in 1979 it was unlike anything people had ever seen.

  • It polarized critics in cinema goers alike.

  • I'm beginning to enjoy.

  • With the sequel Mad Max to the Road Warrior, Miller refined his craft is a filmmaker and storyteller to deliver a sequel that was met with universal acclaim.

  • It has been a pleasure doing business with you, but I'm leaving the third installment, however well, some called it the best film today.

  • Others the worst.

  • Well, ain't we a pair raggedy man?

  • Either way, few could have predicted that the Siri's would reach even greater heights 30 years later with 1/4 film, Mad Max.

  • Fury Road, which was nominated for best picture at the 88th Academy Awards Friday to number three.

  • The Planet of the Apes franchise.

  • The first Planet of the Apes film is iconic.

  • Yo, Man, you blow it up Damn!

  • With the exception of Escape, however, the Sequels Onley tarnished its reputation, including the 2001 reboot.

  • You could tell him from May I said so in 2011 we were treated to yet another reboot, and what we got was a serious departure from the original narrative rise of the Planet of the Apes told an intimate story about an intelligent ape named Caesar.

  • Coming back soon.

  • Okay, though not flawless, it was fresh and compelling.

  • And over the next two films, director Matt Reeves would expertly improve upon the ground work it laid with War for the Planet of the Apes.

  • Closing the trilogy on a triumphant high note.

  • Number two.

  • The Marvel cinematic universe.

  • So many films, so few missteps.

  • As of 2020 the M.

  • C.

  • U is 23 films deep and not a single one has dipped into the realm of rotten.

  • That being, said, the early M.

  • C, you had a habit of pitting heroes against skill set copycats with little character development.

  • Put him down.

  • In more recent years, however, the villains have become Justus flushed out as the heroes.

  • No, no, Are your Kids.

  • Even better is the manner in which recent films have used the rich foundation laid by the movies before them to tell more nuanced stories like a fine wine.

  • The M.

  • C.

  • U is on Lee getting better and more satisfyingly complex with age Avengers a symbol.

  • Number one.

  • The Mission.

  • Impossible Franchise.

  • The first three mission Impossible Films felt like a trilogy with a star but no sense of identity.

  • The first was a convoluted spy thriller.

  • The sequel was all action without substance, and the third was grounded but lacking in the wows well that was nothing that was fun.

  • It's on Lee with 2011 Ghost Protocol that M.

  • I found its stride by embracing the big set pieces and stunts of adventure films, impairing them with intrigue and quick pacing.

  • They'd found a winning recipe.

  • That was no easy, but I did it.

  • But I miss as proven by the success of 2018 Fallout, which has been called one of the best action films ever.

  • The franchise has Onley fine tuned that formula since So how Di dio I've never had a death.
