Movie franchises are the norm in Hollywood and frankly, we rather love them. From the entire Marvel universe to Indiana Jones, and who could forget about Star Wars and Star Trek? There is a bounty of brilliance when it comes to a collective of movie series. 

We have compiled 19 movie franchises that Movie Fanatic cannot get enough of. There seems to be no slowing down franchise movies such as The Hunger Games and James Bond -- heck, 007 is on his 24th movie! 

Click through to see what movie franchises are our absolute faves.

1. Harry Potter

Harry Potter
When your series is based on one of the bestselling book series of all time, that's a good place to start. With the casting of the three leads, fate struck and a movie franchise for the ages was born.

2. The Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings
Now on its fifth movie with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, J.R.R. Tolkien has produced a world perfect for the movies. We could head to Middle Earth time and time again.

3. The Avengers

The Avengers
How could The Avengers not be one of the franchises we're fanatical about? With Avengers: Age of Ultron coming at us, we're just getting started.

4. James Bond

James Bond
James Bond seems to get better with age. Now on his 24th film, 007 shows no signs of slowing.

5. Star Wars

Star Wars
The Force is so with this series that we're getting a new trilogy four decades after it started. Luke, Leia and Han Solo have become not just pop culture legends, but cultural icons.

6. The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games honestly had us from the pages of Suzanne Collins' book. The fact that the movies have been so good... all the better!

Lord of the Rings Quotes

Aragorn: The Beacons of Minas Tirith! The Beacons are lit! Gondor calls for aid.
Theoden: And Rohan will answer. Muster the Rohirrim. Assemble the army at Dunharrow. As many men as can be found. You have two days. On the third, we ride for Gondor and war.

The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of men, who, above all else, desire power. But they were, all of them, deceived, for another Ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret a master Ring, to control all others. And into this Ring he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life.
