Best hood movies includes some of the greatest hood films set in, and about, the 'hood. Hood films began appearing in the late '80s and early '90s, with the most widely-known examples being Boyz n the Hood and Hustle n Flow. These films explore themes of life in African-American urban communities, including poverty, violence, gang involvement, education, sports, and music. Any hood movies list would be incomplete without a mention of Friday or Next Friday - both classic hood movies. More recently, these types of films have fallen out of favor, as many became cliched, being parodied and even garnering criticism for promoting stereotypes. That said, 1980s and 1990s classic hood movies are a testament to top-quality film making - even hood movies from the 21st century are popular and entertaining to dedicated audiences. Hood films deal with urban black culture, often touching on the various struggles of growing up in that type of environment. Vote for your favorites, whether hilarious comedies or heart-wrenching dramas, and check out Ranker's list of the best black movies.

<![CDATA[The Best Anime Series of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-anime-series-all-time
You love anime but what tops this list of the best anime series ever made? The blanket term "anime" in the US can refer to any animation originating in Japan, and specifically differentiates a few aspects of Japanese animation from more Western styles. (This includes the Japanese propensity to feature adult themes and stories in animation, as opposed to Western "cartoons" aimed primarily at children, as well as the exaggerated, fantasy-oriented and colorful style of Japanese animated visuals.) "Anime" can refer either to animated films or TV series, furthering the confusion. (Anime is often incorrectly used to refer to Japanese comic books as well. These are actually known as "manga," though many anime series are based on or inspired by popular manga.) Check out the best anime of 2014 for newer recommendations! 

Anime TV series first found popularity outside of Japan in the 1980s and have continued to find larger and larger audiences in the West. A number of anime shows originating in Japan - such as Cowboy Bebop or Dragon Ball Z - have found enthusiastic audiences for dubbed versions in English speaking countries. (Pokemon, a series inspired by Nintendo's blockbuster series of video games, has been an ongoing hit franchise in both Japan and the US.) The anime style has grown so popular in the US, it has stared to significantly influence the style and aesthetics of American animation. Shows such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, Afro Samurai and Samurai Jack have borrowed heavily from anime in terms of pacing, subject matter, and design.

This list collects the best Japanese anime TV series of all time. American series that have been influenced by anime, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, are not included.

<![CDATA[The Best Science Fiction Franchises of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-science-fiction-franchises
Science fiction is a very popular genre in books, films, video games, and television shows. Some of the biggest grossing movies at the box office are science fiction franchises. It is one of the few genres that can combine a rabid underground following with ultimately a mainstream. wider audience. If not for this delicate mix, franchises like Star Wars, Star Trek, and even Back to the Future and The Terminator wouldn't be as popular as they are.

When the first Star Wars movie was released in 1977, not many people expected it to become the worldwide smash that it has become as a sci-fi film franchise. The single film's popularity paved the way for five additional films and that doesn't include the reboot of the franchise that will include more episodes. The same goes for Star Trek, which has endured through many incarnations and different crews to be one of the most popular scifi franchises in all mediums. The recently rebooted Star Trek movies have been extremely popular with audiences and critics alike.

More than just the top 10 sci fi franchises, this list is your chance to vote on what is the best science fiction franchise. Remember to take all mediums into account, which includes comics, TV, film, books, and video games. These are vital elements into deciding what are the best science fiction franchises of all time.

<![CDATA[The Best Romance Anime Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-romance-anime/ranker-anime
It's time to get in touch with your emotional side, as we're ranking the top romance anime that has ever been made. These shows typically depict two people falling in love; it starts with a crush and the audience watches it blossom from there. Good romance anime highlights all kinds of relationships, from schoolyard crushes and first kisses to adults developing a relationship at work. Sometimes referred to as love anime, these shows can be a little more slow-paced than your typical anime, but that isn't to say they're boring. In fact some of the best romance anime isn't strictly about love, but rather a combination of multiple genres.

In the hit series Inuyasha, the love between Inuyasha and Kagome is strong throughout the series, but it takes a back seat to the fighting and action scenes that really drive the show. The same goes for the popular Eureka 7, where Renton and Eureka fall in love while piloting mechs and fighting the evil United Federation.

Don't forget, if one of your favorite romantic anime shows is missing from the poll, you can add it so that others can vote for it too. Add as many series as you like, as long as they tell a love story with intense feelings and emotions.
