Titles with personal... hum, sorry, CHARACTERSby B_Willis_Federer | created - 29 Nov 2018 | updated - 10 months ago | Public
For more interest, I'll put only 1 movie by saga. Ex, no Bridget Jones 2, 3, no Shrek 2, 3, 4, 5... Also, I won't put movies like Alien, Predator, Terminator, Critters, Tremors, Transformers... movies with names of creatures, given by humans. All those are names of species, groups, not of individuals. It's different for groups of superheroes like Guardians of..., Avengers or Watchmen, cause those designated not a race nor a thing but a precise group of people. I won't put neither The Hollow Man or The Mummy for exemples; same, it can be many different people called like this. But for sure Spider-Man, even if it isn't the birth, the civilian name of the character, and also that there have been several person being the Spider-Man, it's anyway the name of a character, so, it works. I'll put only movies, maybe I'll do another list for TV series... I won't put TV movies or DTV, neither short movies. To conclude, I won't put in the list my favorite movie of the sagas, but the 1st title with the name of a character, so, for Rambo, it's the second movie as the 1st is named "First Blood", but most of the time it'll be the very first movie obviously.
