Star Wars

Total Votes: 640

Ghostbusters Franchise:

The Ghostbusters had a tough road to the finals. After trouncing the Bourne series 77.6% to 22.4%, the sci-fi comedy moved on to round two, defeating Batman 63.4% to 36.6%.

Then, in the semi-finals that ended yesterday, Ghostbusters took on its hardest competitor yet, in Indiana Jones. But the fight proved an uneven one, as Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, and the rest of the gang, beat Harrison Ford 68.8% to 32.2%, preventing what could have been a double-Ford championship matchup!

Now the big question is, can one of the funniest movie franchises in history take on such a Sci-Fi stronghold? Well, that's for you to decide. Read through some Ghostbusters quotes if you need some help.

Star Wars Franchise:

When Movie Fanatic started our latest franchise challenge that focused on franchises, everyone involved had to think that Star Wars would make it to the finals. Well here we are! George Lucas set the standard for carrying an epic story through multiple movies with Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. If there is a weak spot in the series, it is the final (or is it first?) three... although they too have a huge following.

To get to the finals, Star Wars beat back challenges from the Scream movies in the first round, The Lord of the Rings in the second round and then finally taking down the mighty James Bond movies.

Will Star Wars reign supreme? Check out these Star Wars quotes and see why this series needs to be crowned the winner!
