Trek for me [In reply to] Can't Post

I watched the original series on television during my formative years, so it had the most impact. And probably predisposed me to like most of the others listed when they came along later.

I know the Firefly series with the later movie Serenity doesn't qualify, but really that is my favorite.

Wow, it's great to know that other people like The Voyage Home too! [In reply to] Can't Post

It has such a touching and relevant storyline, and the crew's attempts to fit in in the past were absolute gold. What I wouldn't give, too, to be that biologist who gets brought with them to the 23rd century.

The Wrath of Khan is an excellent movie as well. Spock's dying speech is one of the most beautiful exchanges in cinema, I think.

I'm gonna rock the boat - The Thin Man series! [In reply to] Can't Post

I like several of your choices, mostly Marvel and Harry Potter, but I voted for "Other" and I'm really going to sound old - The Thin Man series! They were actually made before I was born. I've got a movie collection of those. I also have a set of Matt Helm movies, which are kind of a spoof of James Bond (not an incredible Bond fan) starring Dean Martin as a drunk spy. I think those were made in the 60's when I was in grade school. Love "The Silencers" and "The Wrecking Crew!" If you young-uns ever get a chance to see either, you'll either thank me or be very bored, but my daughters do love the "Thin Man!"

Can't believe no one said "Sherlock" [In reply to] Can't Post

Of course I suppose the Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman series isn't technically a MOVIE, but heck, it might as well be considering how infrequently they are released. And of course there's the old Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce movies - surely SOME of you have seen those? No, I didn't list them as my favorites, but they probably should have gone on my list. Greatly looking forward to "The Abominal Bride" this Friday, YAAAAYYYYY!!!!!Cool

Guilty Pleasures [In reply to] Can't Post

Just for sheer, goofy fun I have to add Toho's Godzilla movies to my list as well as the Gamera reboot from the 1990s.

I would of put Sherlock down [In reply to] Can't Post

It's technically not a movie series. (even though they are long like movies!)Wink I'm looking forward to seeing the new one, but won't be able to see it in theaters, but we did preorder it!

I love the Thin Man! My mom and watched them all about two years ago, and I loved them! I think they are great movies!

if we can include sherlock, then we ought to be able to include foyle's war [In reply to] Can't Post

each foyle's war ep feels like a short film to me..... so if we bend the definition a bit, i would say foyle's war. if we're not bending, i'd say harry potter.

Yes, if we're including tv... [In reply to] Can't Post

Foyle's War would get a vote from me too. Such a well-done series in every way. And then Sherlock would qualify too.

yep and yep! :) [In reply to] Can't Post


i really do think of the foyle's war installments as films. when i discovered the series, it had racked up a few years, and every time it was renewed i was absolutely beside myself with joy. we did miss out on an entire year of the war, because that one ITV head cancelled the series (the blaggard).

sherlock is also worthy. and if anyone wants to argue with me, i will be in my horse-mind palace.

cheers ---

I choose Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight [In reply to] Can't Post

This trilogy, and the LOTR one, are the only movie series that i enjoy.

I like POC:The curse of the Black Pearl and I love POC:Dead Man's chest (it is much more similar to Monkey Island), but there isn't any good about End World and little about Stranger Tides.

Didn't see the Alien originals. But i enjoy Prometheus and AvP. I should watch them.

I love several [In reply to] Can't Post

The Marvel Universe (although I don't like all the movies herein included: especially Thor 1, Iron Man 2 and Cap 1). I LOVE The Pirates of the Cribbean series; like the Star Wars series very much (although not THAT much); love The Riddick series; recently discovered The Star Trek movie series, and I'm enjoying my great deal of them; and have many more movie series that I enjoy. But If I was forced to chose, I think I would say the Underworld movies. I know they have many issues, but I absolutely LOVE the world they've created and it has been my inspiration for creating a world of my own which I'm now starting to write about. One day I may post one thing or two that I've written if someone asks me to! Wink

Making me choose between my fandoms!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I voted Maze Runner because I've completely fallen in love with the series, but if TMR hadn't been up there, I would totally have voted Star Wars!
My other favorites would be:
Chronicles of Narnia
I'm in a sort of love/hate relationship with Hunger Games.

Star Wars! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's the epic SCI/FANTASY SAGA of Luke Skywalker. Yes the prequels were bad but the originals and now TFA have redeemed Star Wars from its "dark times."

I went with Star Trek (old) [In reply to] Can't Post

just because of my love for the first four movies (although my order of preference is STII:TWOK, ST:TMP, STIV:TVH, STIII:TSFS) but for your consideration and viewing pleasure, I also like the following series:

- The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood / Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns)
- Back to the Future
- Karate Kid (original 3 with Ralph Macchio)
- Horatio Hornblower (new telemovies with Ioan Gruffud)
- The Godfather
- Rocky
- Mad Max
- John Ford/ John Wayne collaborations (The Searchers, 3 Godfathers, Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Rio Grande, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Quiet Man) -- I add this compilation rather than series only because you listed Studio Ghibli (which I also like)
