can't forget Pirates of the Caribbean. Dead man's chest is currently 4th on the "Worldwide highest-grossing films" and the fourth installment of the series "On Stranger Tides", which was released this year, is 7th on the list and climbing. Pirates of the Caribbean is the only series with 2 movies in the top 10. Harry Potter does have 4 movies in the top 15 and I'm sure this latest film will be up there soon enough.

Unfortunately there is no list for this but I'm sure if there was one Titanic would be number one. Titanic should also be number one on the "Most Overrated Movies of All Time" list and trust me the genre is not lost on me.
