It's time again to review franchises which became trilogies and/or reached critical lows in 2015. Peter Pan and Sherlock Holmes now have unofficial, unrelated live action prequels and sequels, so like Oz I'm tentatively including them. Not Frankenstein however (Viktor, Underworld's, Coppola's or Adam Sandler's) because it's too confusing. Until a few more critics review the mediocre 1977 and 1980 Charlie Brown features, Peanuts will rank in the top tier. Also listed are franchises I missed before.

Despicable Me (55%, 2015)
Terminator (25%, 2015)
Taken (9%, 2015)
Fantastic Four (10%, 2015)
Insidious (38%, 2013)
Paranormal Activity (11%, 2015)
Transporter (17%, 2015)
Peanuts (86%, 2015)
Peter Pan (26%, 2015)
Sherlock Holmes (59%, 2011)
-------
Punisher (27%, 2008)
Arthur (13%, 1988)
Wings of Desire (55%, 1993)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (19%, 2007)

A while back The Atlantic magazine analyzed RT scores and adjusted box office and found Indy to be the greatest movie franchise of all time.

Totally Money finds the same. Plenty of graphs and tables to sift through here.
