Power Rankings: Underrated Movie Franchises

The SAW Power Rankings is our weekly ranking of a certain movie-related topic. Please feel free to comment on our rankings and provide a list of your own in the comments below.

We wanted to take a look at some underrated movie franchises this week and it looks like the three of us have decided Brendan Fraser’s The Mummy is the most underrated movie franchise of all-time. It is a fun and action-packed series with a great lead. I threw Lethal Weapon on there because I don’t think it gets mentioned with other action series like Die Hard, Indiana Jones, John Wick, and others. I think they are all solid with Riggs as a great action character. Each Friday movie just cracks me up with the original being one of my favorite comedies of all-time. I think Unbreakable and Split are both great and even with Glass being less than stellar, I enjoyed the world Shyamalan built with some fun characters. I’m usually not big on stoner films but Cheech and Chong were a big part of my childhood with their movies and comedy albums, I couldn’t help but show them some love.
