The Lounge>The Greatest Movie Franchises of All Time - Midwest Division Round 1
DaFace 09:24 AM 04-13-2019
Links to preceding threads:
Spoiler!


You can view the entire tournament bracket here as we go along, but here's the Midwest division:



Please vote for the franchise in each pair that you feel is most deserving of being in consideration for the Greatest Movie Franchise of All Time. I'll put one of these up every day or two as we go along. So vote!

Possible Concerns and Responses:
  1. A franchise I like isn't on the list! Too bad. Nominations are closed. This is just a fun offseason diversion, but feel free to complain in the thread if it will make you feel better.
  2. There's something on the list that I don't even think is a franchise! Don't vote for it.
  3. There's something on the list that I don't recognize. Yeah, there are a few that I don't recognize either. If you feel generous, look it up and determine if you think it's worthy. Or just don't vote for it. Either option is allowed.
  4. The seeding seems weird (or there's something I have no idea how it got in there). The seeding is based on total estimated tickets from Box Office Mojo, but some older franchises were randomly seeded since we don't have any data available about their ticket sales. Again, if you don't feel something is deserving, don't vote for it!

Rocky losing would be the first real surprise of the tournament to me.

This. I love me some Rocky movies.

John Wick deserves to move on (especially if Parabellum is as good as the trailer makes it look to be), but Nolan's Batman trilogy is just too strong.

I'm open to suggestions about format (or even suggestions just not to do it).

this,This and THIS!!!

I am in full agreement with Mr. Bowser on this travesty.

John Wick is Batman. Just exchange the parents for a car and a dog, ditch the dumbass "bat" leotard and gown train, rename a #2 graphite pencil the "Wickarang", and start reckoning sh*t. Wick got dicked.

Alien is my favorite movie of all time. I think it's the most perfect movie ever made. Aliens is in my top 10. It's more of a standard action movie to me - but still insanely well done. I even appreciate Alien 3 and Alien 4 even though I wouldn't put them in my top 50.

So yeah - how the hell is the Alien franchise already done? Come on man.

That he pulled out of Batman's asscrack!

Rain man would've had this figured out already.

I'm fairly certain it was based on box office sales or, if not, a similar metric.
