Good, but not fantastic is it? But it’s among a pretty good crowd. There’s a total of two Pirates of the Carribean Movies in the top-20, three times Spider Man, two times Shrek, two times X-Men, two times Star Wars, and no less than FIVE Harry Potter movies. So, that being said this adds up to 16 movies. It might be better to say that The Simpsons Movie is among 3 others that actually has made the list without being in a series of movies, these are The Passion of the Christ, The Da Vinci Code and of course The Simpsons. The last movie missing is Matrix Reloaded, which is the only Matrix movie on the list.
