Toy Story Franchise:
Toy Story revolutionized both computer animation and the children's movie genre, by creating a visually stunning, heartwarming story that could truly be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Not only was the first movie groundbreaking, but Toy Story 3 wowed audiences in what is often considered one of the most emotionally moving movies of the last decade. Pixar's flagship franchise is one of the most universally enjoyable in history. Check out some Toy Story franchise quotes for more.
Back to the Future Franchise:
The Back to the Future franchise is one of the more underrated series in movie history. Ask anyone who’s seen all three and a smile should emerge from their lips as the film is charming, and looking back, it stands the test of time. Michael J. Fox scored the role of his life as Marty McFly, and his continuing adventures with Doc (Christopher Lloyd) took them into the future, the past and an alternative present that all kept the heart and soul of the first film through the two subsequent movies. Everyone has a favorite -- ours goes back and forth over the years between the first and third. But, there is also an argument to be made for the wildly creative second chapter. See… the pure definition of a solid franchise: All of its films hold water equally. Head to the Back to the Future franchise quotes page for more.
