<![CDATA[The Best Woody Allen Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-woody-allen-movies-of-all-time
The best Woody Allen movies of all time rank among some of the best movies of all time, so it's no surprise movie fans would want to debate which of his films deserves the title of greatest Woody Allen movie ever. While there are some talented directors who have stood behind the camera since the start of cinema, Woody Allen is far and away one of the best directors of all time due largely in part to his neurotic characters (perceived to be real to a fault), his strong female characters, and his own inclusion as an actor in a way that doesn't distract from the other actors (you hear that, Quentin?).

Of course, while many people in the older generation know Woody Allen for his comedies, newer movie watchers may know him equally for his dramas and for causing drama as one of the most scandalous celebs in Hollywood. Either way, the guy makes a heck of a movie.

Make sure to vote up your favorite Woody Allen movie and feel free to add any great Woody Allen movies that might have been left off the list.

<![CDATA[The Saddest Deaths in Kids Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/saddest-deaths-in-kids-movies/samantha-dillinger
This list of the most tragic and saddest deaths in kids movies will have you tearing up in no time. These traumatizing movie deaths made a whole generation of children sob and spend their adulthoods trying to sort through their feelings.The fact that these movies were aimed at children or teens did not spare the lives of these poor characters: Mufasa, Artax, Littlefoot's Mother, R.I.P.

As a kid, you rarely saw it coming. Even watching some of these movies as adults can still cause grown men to cry. They truly are some of the top tearjerker movies. Who could ever forget poor Simba's face when he realized that Mufasa died? Or the sad scene in My Girl when a young Anna Chlumsky (Vada) cried over the coffin of her best friend, Thomas? The characters on this list can bring you back to these sad scenes in kid's movies.

There are many sad Disney movies, both cartoon and live action. The saddest scenes in children's movies were either caused by the death of characters that you, as the audience, had grown to love (like Dumbledore) or that other people in the movie loved. For example, the death of Ellie Fredricksen in Up is one of the saddest movie deaths--not necessarily because people cared about Ellie (she was only briefly in the beginning of the movie) but because people could see how much Carl loved her.

The deaths of these characters made for sad family movies that were loved by kids and adults alike.

<![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. 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.

Here 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 is the Best Science Fiction Franchise of all time.

Threequel: the third (and often final) movie in a series. A third film that follows the original and the sequel. With the newly released Iron Man 3 tearing up the foreign and domestic box office, it's a good time to look at other movie threequels and see how they stack up against each other. Many of the best movies of all time are part of a series of movies that make up the best movie franchises ever. While many of these are the third installment in a movie trilogy, more still are part of ongoing series or much longer movie series like Harry Potter and Star Wars

Iron Man isn't the only franchise to produce a critically lauded and financially successful third movie, but it is faring particularly well compared to some of the other entries in the third film of the movie franchise. For ever Dark Knight Rises there's a Superman III, Godfather 3, and Spiderman 3. Perish the thought.

What are the best third films ever? What movie series have the best film threequels? This greatest third movie in a series list is here to let movie fans decide which third entries in a movie franchise are the best and the worst movies compared to each other. If your favorite threequel isn't on the list of the best threequels ever, make sure to throw it in the mix. Your third movie in a film franchise can't be much worse than Red Dragon, right?

<![CDATA[The Very Best Movie Franchises]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/5-star-movie-franchises
The best movie franchises of all time have brought us some of the best movies ever as well as some billion dollar films and many of them are still cranking out classics (Toy Story 4?? Yes, folks, Pixar has confirmed that it's happening!) This is your chance to vote for what you think is the greatest movie franchise ever and see how your favorite movie franchises rank against other movie enthusiasts' choices.

Some people will judge a franchise based on its best parts (*cough*Star Wars*cough*) while others will take all the parts of a franchise into account when ranking the top movie series, so don't get offended if you see The Lord of the Rings further down this list than you think it should be (FYI- The Hobbit counts as part of that franchise). Also try to keep in mind that movie franchises that will have three or more movies but don't yet (like The Hunger Games) do not yet qualify for this list of the best movie franchises of all time.

Vote on these top movie franchises based on the series as a whole, or just because one or two of the movies mean something special to you. If you don't see your favorite movie franchise on the list, make sure to add it so you can see where it shakes out among the greatest movie franchises ever.

<![CDATA[The Best Star Wars Movies, Ranked by Fans]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-star-wars-movie
A list of the best Star Wars movies, ranked by fans and critics. Since the premiere of the original Star Wars (A New Hope) in 1977, the saga of the Jedi, the Sith, and the Skywalker family have been favorites of movie-goers. Along with the original film, its sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and The Return of the Jedi (1983) are considered some of the best movies of all time. The stories follow Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, and their friends and droids as they battle the evil Sith lords Darth Vader and Darth Sidious.

Sixteen years after the release of the initial films, a trilogy of Star Wars prequels were created, beginning with Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 1999. Attack of the Clones was released in 2002, and Revenge of the Sith (2005) was the final film. This set of films followed Anakin Skywalker, Luke's father, from his youth to his becoming Darth Vader as well as his relationships with wife Padme Amidala, mentor Obi Wan Kenobi, and eventually Emperor Palpatine.

In 2012, it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilms and was planning three new Star Wars films, sequels that follow the end of The Return of the Jedi. In light of this, we look back at the "original" films to let the crowd decide, once and for all, which are the best films int he Star Wars franchise. Vote for your favorites to move them to the top of the list. May the Force be with you.
