Twilight Sage:best movie franchise ever?

After this weekends take, New Moon has raked in over $230million. Impressive for a film that cost $50million. It's on pace to be around the Dark Knight/ Harry Potter/ Lord of the Rings and Pirates of Caribean box office intake. Mind you, the latter films cost close to $200million a piece to make. Should we be comparing the Twilight Saga on par with the best movie franchises of all time? I say no...but I'm sure, Twilights/New Moon fans would surely disagree with me. Maybe after the next 2 films comes out, there will be a debate. Keep in mind, the Matrix and Transformers are also mixed into this equation. What do you guys consider as the best movie franchise of all time? From an entertainment value. Agree or disagree...here's my top 3. #1 Star Wars #2Spiderman franchise #3 Transformers. Okay, I had my say, whats everyone's top 3 movie franchise?

Star Wars is tops by a long shot. It's misleading these days though, with the publication of the money take. There are sooo many more theatres and the prices are insane. Theatres make no money off the films, just the concessions. The numbers are also never adjusted. If you adjusted for inflation, the highest grossing movie of all time is Gone With the Wind, followed by Star Wars, which has also has Jedi, Empire and Phantom Menace in the top 20. Spiderman, yes and LOTR, Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman.

Indiana Jones has to be included.

Too early for Twilight to be given the crown..... let's wait until the other movies come out.

my top three? hmmm that's a tough one.

I'd say:

1. starwars. for sure. No question.
2. James Bonds
3. Matrix (people will disagree with me, but i liked all three parts).

I'm probably forgetting a really obvious good one... oh well.

Exactly.

In terms of money, maybe. A lot of stupid movies bring in a lot of cash.

In terms of actually being good, from what I know, the whole series is a joke.

I don't like the Transformers movies and Spiderman 3 wasn't great
James Bond is also craping out

Star Wars
LOTR
Godfather

nah..... everyone I've heard says that this movie is really quite good...... certainly much better than the first one. Of course, a massively expanded budget doesn't hurt.

Twilight is complete garbage. The fact that this is even a questions shows where movies are at these days. Have you gone to blockbuster much in the last 3-4 months? Horrible movies! This is as bad as it's been since i can remember for renting a decent movie.

It's making alot of $$, but that doesn't make it the best movie franchise ever. That's just rediculous!

i'm assuming you saw the movie, right? you would never post an opinion about a movie without having seen it, would you?
