Poll is now closed! Here are the results:Back to the Future
The 80's sci-fi comedy adventure was apparently seeded too low, as it beat a franchise that contains two of the best animated films ever made: Toy Story. Marty McFly and Doc Brown beat Woody and Buzz 55.8% to 44.2% in the first round, sending it straight to round 2 to take on another popular bunch of adventure movies from the 80's.
Back to the Future left such an indelible mark on American pop culture, that people everywhere are still longing for the iconic hoverboard from BTTF II to become a reality. Head to our Back to the Future franchise quotes page for more.
The Indiana Jones franchise emerged victorious from the first round of our Movie Fanatic Franchise Bracket with a decisive (and kind of surprising) victory over The Godfather series. We adore Indiana Jones, but the three votes to one margin over such a titan of film was a shock.
But, then again, since Indiana Jones debuted in Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, Harrison Ford and his alter ego have been charming millions of movie goers with his Saturday morning serialized feel of adventure. The stellar trilogy (we’ll forget that last one) is one that is easily passed on from older generation to younger with the passion for the franchise only increasing with time.
