    Figured this was the right forum for this and not Misc Films (if it's not then the mods are free to move it there). Are there any movie series of any genre with at least three or more movies where your ranking for them is the release order they came out in? With the first being the best, the second being the second best, the third being the third best, etc.? A lot of user rankings for some movie series vary greatly, but how often do you rank any series in release order?

    For me, some series I rank in the order they came out:


    Jurassic Park
    RoboCop
    Iron Man (not counting The Avengers)
    Child's Play
    Paranormal Activity
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (live-action trilogy)

    Nolan's Batman
    Burton/Schumacher Batman if that counts
    Raimi's Spider-Man
    Back to the Future

    The Burton/Schumacher Batman films definitely could if they're your pick. Seperate series entirely from Nolan's.

    All of these plus Evil Dead and Lethal Weapon.

    Iron Man was close but I like the third film more than the second.

    Some more for me...

    Major League (yes, there was a third and it was awful)
    Revenge of the Nerds (first was great, second was ok, third was awful, and I think there was even a fourth)
    Harold and Kumar
    Blade (but 2 is a very close second)

    I have to see IM 2 and 3 again, I could like 3 more than 2 with repeat views. I liked 3 but I feel I need to see it a few more times for a finalized opinion.

    I haven't seen Blade II yet, just the first and the third, and while the third doesn't seem too well-liked I actually enjoyed it a little more than the first (which I liked as well, I just thought 3 was more entertaining).

    The Hangover series, definitely. First was a great comedy, second was pretty much the same movie but still funny, the third one was a disappointment.

    Never seen any of The Hangover films but the sequels don't seem to be received too well from what I've seen.

    Iron Man
    Blade
    Naked Gun
    The Matrix
    Hangover(never saw 2 or 3 but I have no doubt they pale compared to the first)
    Jaws

    Quite a few go that route.

    I think I'll add my ratings per each movie in the series that go in release order for me:


    Jurassic Park

    1 - 10/10
    2 - 8/10
    3 - 6/10


    RoboCop

    1 - 10/10
    2 - 9/10
    3 - 1/10


    Iron Man

    1 - 9/10
    2 - 8/10
    3 - 7 or 8/10 (need to see again to determine)


    Child's Play

    1 - 9/10
    2 - 9/10
    3 - 8/10
    4 - 7/10
    5 - 4/10


    Paranormal Activity

    1 - 8/10
    2 - 8/10
    3 - 7/10
    4 - 5/10


    TMNT LA Trilogy

    1 - 9/10
    2 - 7/10
    3 - 7/10


    You all can do the same if you'd like.

    It's crazy how so many franchises go down this path, then I see something like Fast and Furious, where the 5th movie is head and shoulders above anything that came before it, and the 6th is also better than 1-4.

    I haven't seen any FATF movies past the second one. Didn't care for either but maybe I'll give them a shot again, someday.

    I think that's the first time I've seen the F13 movies ranked in descending order.

    I just don't see how they can all be "hilariously bad" but still get 7.7-8.5 ratings.

    I always rate based on enjoyment value as well.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the Fridy the 13th movies. I grew up on those as my slasher film series of choice. It's funny watching them now because I don't find them scary at all, but I still love them.

    I'm a softee when it comes to the F13s, they got me into Horror and movies in general, and I rate most of them pretty highly. They definitely don't go in release order for me though, I prefer a good chunk of the sequels.

    One series I often see ranked by many in order of release is the remake Mummy trilogy. I only saw the first one and it's still a pretty entertaining movie, soon I'll get around to seeing the two sequels. Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor seems to be pretty poorly regarded.

    Great thread idea.

    The Matrix
    movies come to mind instantly.
    I haven't seen the 3rd Mummy film, but I loved the first and didn't care much for the second.
    Back to the Future. Parts 2 and 3 are almost equal in my mind (with 2 being slightly better), but neither one is as great as the original.
