|The Saw films started out so well...|
While there have been many movie series I enjoy, some franchises I just can't endorse. Here are some I started and abandoned. Note: These are in no particular order.
Ice Age films (2002-present)
The first film was decent, but I gave up after the mediocre second one.
Twilight series (2008-2012)
I suffered through one and was done.
Resident Evil films (2002-present)
I saw the first film years ago and mostly enjoyed it. I never had any desire to watch the others though.
Saw films (2004-present)
While the first three films were solid, the awful fourth one put me off the series for good.
Madagascar films (2005-present)
I was never really invested in these, but the first two weren't terrible. Still, I doubt I'll ever watch the third or upcoming fourth one.
Alvin and the Chipmunks films (2007-present)
The first one could have been worse. The sequels probably are.
Scary Movie films (2000-present)
I made it through the first three before I moved on to better things.
Underworld films (2003-present)
The first film was campy fun, but I never bothered with any of the rest.
Final Destination films (2000-2011?)
I watched (and liked) the first two when I was younger. However, none of the others have been high on my radar.
Step Up films (2006-present)
I didn't mind the first two. The second film is actually one of my guilty pleasures. I've no interest in any of the other sequels though.
