What’s the last movie series marathon you watched?

For some reason, I’ve been getting a hankering to watch series’ of movies. First it was the original Star Wars trilogy, then the rebooted Star Trek trilogy, then the Jason Bourne quadrilogy (not The Bourne Legacy), Captain America trilogy, the 4 Avengers movies. Now I’m in the midst of the 6 Mission: Impossible movies. Next is the Riddick quadrilogy (includes animated Dark Fury). Then gonna try to delve into The Lord of the Rings extended trilogy. Not sure why the sudden urge, but it has been fun.

Any movie series your into or just completed lately?

The Dekalog is what keeps coming to mind. It was also among the last DVDs I ever rented from Netflix.

Re: What’s the last movie series marathon you watched?

I don’t know if it would be considered a “marathon” but prior to The Rise of Skywalker hitting Blu-ray, me and my son watched all the original trilogy, prequel trilogy, the first two in the sequel trilogy, and Rogue One, and Solo. It took us a couple weekends but we plowed brought them at a decent clip.

I recently downloaded HBOmax onto my Roku for WW84. As I was looking through available movies I noticed The Hobbit Trilogy was available to stream. It occurred to me that I never finished the series with the last two movies after The Hobbit was released. I’ll probably try to make it though that trilogy next.

I actually do this often. Sometimes the films aren’t even connected. I watch a bunch of Carpenter or De Palma or Cohen.
The last series I watched though was the extended LOTR on 4k. Prior to that was when I watched the Star Wars series in 4k when I got my new tv in November.

I watched all the Alien films last year (plus both AvP films).

People seem to disagree with me about which film is second best

Over Christmas I watched all the Universal Frankenstein movies (except for Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman which I don't have). I did this last Christmas too, so I guess this is my new yuletide tradition.

I started rewatching the Fast and the Furious series a few weeks ago. Ended up blowing through all 8 in a fairly short period of time.

I lied in my previous post. More recently, I re-watched all of the Back to the Future movies with my wife and kid. My kid liked BTTF2 the most. I'm okay with this. BTTF3 has some great moments, but doesn't hold up as well as BTTF 2 and BTTF.

I generally can't sit there for multiple movies in a row, but I just finished going through Miyazaki's filmography over the course of about a month.

I did 4 Kurosawas in like 3 days last month, also.

Last narrative series was Star Wars (Ep. III-Ep. VIII, in order) before Rise of Skywalker came out.

Last one completed would probably be Mission: Impossible when I got the 4k set when it came out last year.

Currently working on Bourne with my kids though. Watched Identity and Supremacy recently.

Star Wars before TROS came out, and BTTF, LOTR, and Before... last year. And yes, one is not like the others.

Re: What’s the last movie series marathon you watched?

Before Christmas, I made the whole family watch THE GODFATHER series (the individual movies, not THE COMPLETE EPIC, not the SAGA, not THE TRILOGY) back to back, and it reminded just how great these movies are (and yes, I include THE GODFATHER: PART III).

Then I saw WONDER WOMAN 1984 and lost faith in American cinema...

i'm thinking about doing The Godfather epic which i still have recorded on my DVR when it aired on HBO in 2015 and then watch Coda, The Death of Michael Corleone.

Re: What’s the last movie series marathon you watched?

I've been on a 90s kicks and so I watched the four 90s Star Trek movies: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek: Generations; Star Trek First Contact; and Star Trek: Insurrection. The contrast between Star Trek VI's epic gravitas and practical effects in contrast to Insurrection's lightheartedness and 90s-level CGI is such a shocking contrast. (I like Insurrection, but yeah, it feels like a 2-part TNG episode--and that's all right. I love me some TNG!)

Re: What’s the last movie series marathon you watched?

also, probably going to do Lethal Weapon. only saw 4 once and remember not liking it too much. 3 was pretty good and 1 & 2 certainly are the classics. just saw part 1. just wish the Director's Cut for these were on bluray or at least streaming...
