I’m a movie freak! I like so many different types of films, from some black and white classics to the modern movies of today. I’m a bit weird too though, because I am a lover of sequels too. Sometimes I have even loved the second movie of the franchise a little more than the first. There even a lot of Disney movies like that, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, and Pocahontas sequels are awesome no matter what anybody says! Two of my favorite Disney original movies should be included in this post, but I decided against it. Both the The Cheetah Girls and Halloweentown films are a GREAT group of movies, even if one of the main actresses out of the loop. I thought it would be awesome if I made out a small list of my favorite film franchises. What movies do you think deserve to be on your list? I’d like to hear them!
1.) Back To The Future
Yeah, I’m a BTTF baby! My mom got me started on these movies early on! When I was a kid I remember asking my mom for both purple underwear, because I love the color purple! And where were the damn hoverboards? Now that it’s almost 2015, everybody is taking bets on the Cubbies! You definitely don’t see any hoverboards or flying cars out and about, but Nike did announce recently that they were working on powered laces! HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT?! My mom and I love the first two movies, but she won’t watch or tape the third movie. I can tolerate it. I definitely haven’t seen it as many times as the first two, that’s for sure!
2.) Step Up
I love my dance movies to the core! The fact that if this movie wouldn’t take off we’d never be so in love with both Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, and then they wouldn’t get married and have Everly?! Oh My Gosh, I don’t want to think about it! The first movie was delicious! I loved the chemistry between Nora and Tyler. The dancing was amazing, the scenes that would repeat in the future installments, the party scenes and big dance finish at the end. I’m sad that I didn’t get to see the newest in theaters, but it’s okay because it’ll be out on DVD soon. I think the best couple that came out of the series was Camille from the first movie, who is played by Alyson Stoner, she played Tyler’s foster-sister. Moose was on the second film, he’s played by Adam Sevani, they somehow meet in the year or two leading up to the third movie. They’re were adorable and had a beautiful relationship between them. The hottest male of the series and this might freak out a few people, including my mother, isn’t Channing. Even though my girl crush of the series is still Jenna! Anyways, the hottest male is Ryan Guzman from Step Up: Revolution! *swoons*
3.) Fast And Furious
This serious has got to be one of the best! Every racing type of movie wants to be like it, plus have the fans like it too. The cast, crew, and fandom had a total shock when the death of Paul Walker was announced. The production of the seventh movie was put on hold for a bit and the new movie technology had its good advantage to it when the news was made that instead of just cropping Paul’s scenes out for good, that the team was going to use Paul’s brothers as his body stunts to continue on his legacy of the films. Despite all of this, the movies are the best! My sister and I loved the current release. We didn’t start bawling our eyes out until the very end of the movie during the prayer. I was sad all over again about the death of Han, played by Sung Kang, but we had to add on Gisele, played by Gal Gadot, who dies in the sixth movie. I can’t wait to see what the newest movie will have in store, as it will about revenge of both Han’s death and Own Shaw’s death too. I’m ready for it!
I don’t care what anybody says, but Michael Bay did an amazing job making these movies and characters come to life. I sadly haven’t been able to see the new one yet, but it is on my agenda before the year is over so don’t worry! Yes, I was upset about the new recasting for the new movie, but considering majority of the movies that recast in a franchise will just continue to do it, I may as well get used to it and shut up. I wasn’t feeling the change of Megan Fox in the third movie either but that sure as hell didn’t take me long to stop denying. Rosie was a nice change but looked like Megan’s character Mikaela was a trashy character so I kind of got defensive over that thought. I really loved Shia in the first three movies, he brought those Transformers come to life just as much as the voice actors did. They brought the humor and seriousness of the scenes. My favorite film is the second one and I can literally quote the whole damn movie too. We saw that one in theaters and my mom bawled her eyes out when the Megatron killed Optimus. My favorite car is of course Bee, the yellow Camero, but I really love Sideswipe 2009 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and since I’m more into trucks, you gotta love Ironhide who had a 2006 GMC Topkick C4500.
5.) Bring It On
The first film of the series came out in 2000. That was 14 years ago! I’m pretty sure I didn’t exactly watch it when it first came out but it’s somewhere close to it. I think my sister became a cheerleader after watching these movies, luckily when she was a senior in high school she shared the role of cheer captain before having to quit because she wasn’t enjoying it anymore. She has talked about going and doing it again for college, but doubt she’ll ever do it again. Too many hospital visits! Majority of the sequels of the series was mostly played on ABC Family so all of the cuss words and not family friendly scenes are cut out. My favorite cheer captains are Hayden Paniettere from the All or Nothing and Christina Milian, from the Fight To The Finish. My favorite enemy is Winnie from All Or Nothing. She was a real bitch. The only movie I haven’t seen all the way through is Bring It On Again, because the girls just got on my nerves, but I still love the series and plot of the story. The big finishes of the films are the best. They always make me miss Blondie cheering in school.
