This may be the worst Top 10 I’ve written. Not in the way it was written or the lack of research, of course–on the contrary, I did a lot of research to try and track down the most fourth films in a series I could find. It was a little experiment to see what the percentage of good/bad is among fourth movies in a franchise to kind of gauge what we’re in for this weekend as fourth franchise film “Terminator Salvation” opens in theaters.

Guess what? They’re not so good. I could have made a Top 10 list of the worst in a franchise, but that would have been too easy to list, and it numbered around 50. It was much more challenging to come up with ones that didn’t suck too bad. Anyway, enjoy it if you dare: The Top 10 Best Fourth Movies in a Franchise.
