    For me, it is has to be the Harry Potter movies. I mean, come on, they are great! I love the imaginative world.
    I also have Matrix that makes it on my list, in the 2nd spot. I am madly in love with the kick-ass action those movies contain.
    Thirdly, I am a sucker for the Final Destination flicks. Man, those are amaze-balls!

    Godzilla. Especially the Shōwa series.

    I also like Jurassic Park, Star Trek and the Alien films. Seeing Prometheus tonight!

    Like the OP, I guess I'd go with Harry Potter and Final Destination. My favorite of the FD series was the 3rd....only because of Jason Wise icon_redface.gif ....

    The Saw movies are really brilliant -- this mythology that's like an interlocking puzzle itself, full of rain-swept warehouse districts and murky characters. It's the rare franchise where you can't come in during the middle of the series or watch it out of order and have the narrative make any sense.

    Planet of The Apes -- really, the first upfront animal rights movies, incredibly grim, violent, and devastating. Those shots of the gorilla foot soldiers on the horizon are the best depiction of the race war portions of America seem to both fear and welcome.

    The Die Hard franchise hands down.
    John McClane was badass (not to mention that Bruce Willis is so sexy). I loved every one. Not one was shitty as some sequels do.

    Die Hard with a Vengeance is my favorite of the franchise.

    Harry Potter, Indiana Jones (the 4'th one doesn't exist), Star Trek, Matrix, LoTR, James Bond, Alien (not #3, and definitely not #4).

    I was going to put Star Wars, but because JarJar Binks ruined the franchise I am ethically obligated not to.

    Oh, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings all the way. Didn't even have to think about it

    Harry Potter mainly because I feel like you end up feeling so connected to the characters that seeing it end was so fucking sad.

    And Lord of the Rings because it is just one of the most epic and beautiful stories ever told (in my opinion). I like that they both sort of have the underlying tone of a selfless protagonist pushed to carry the weight of the world, but with the help of friends.

    While I did intially go into the Saw movies with intrigue and I did enjoy the first 2, however they did quickly become old for me. I just lost interest after seeing them try to pull out everything they possibly could out of the hat to ensure there was 1 out every October. The movies just needed to wrap up sooner; I don't know if there is another one due after that 3D one, I've lost track!
    This is just my opinion and I'm totally okay with yours.

    Star Wars, more so the first 3 (Episodes IV, V, VI); Lord of the Rings; The Godfather (not so much the 3rd one); most of the James Bond movies; and in tribute to the 1930s movies I love, The Thin Man detective series, and the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals, which were all almost the same movie with different sets & costumes.

    I would probably say that Lord of the Rings is the only franchise that I enjoyed from beginning to end. There are other franchises that I like but that have weak movies that I didn't care for.

    Harry Potter
    Star Trek
    Star Wars (original 3 only)
    Matrix
    Die Hard
    Terminator
    Spider-Man
    X-Men
    Aliens
    Godfather

    There are probably more.
