A film franchise, or movie franchise (also referred to as a film series or movie series) is a collection of related films in succession that share the same universe, or are marketed as a series. A movie franchise is a collection of films related by copyright. Sequels, prequels, remakes, re-imaginings, spin-offs and public domain films are common examples of franchised films.

These are lists of movies ranked from the best to the worst using the sum of eight different ratings: stars, gimmick, rewatchability, creepiness, story, creativity, acting and quality.
