Agree with a lot of the rankings, but The Fellowship of the Ring? Gets a 10/10 c'mon!?

^ LOTR is that franchise for me. I'm impressed by some of it but it's really a chore to sit through, except for the first two films in both trilogies, which are pretty entertaining "going on an adventure" films.

I know I'm in the minority on this but everybody has a franchise like that. LOTR is mine.

And thanks for the comments ;)
