@tireyo: Actually looking at the threads I think they can co-exist. That is a general tv and movies topic. The theme on discussion isn't this one. It would be harder to discuss the theme there, as it wouldn't be visible unless you read the previous posts. I don't want to discuss my favourite movies, but ask which franchise is each user's favourite.
I gotta say, this Marvel Cinematic Universe stuff is really killin it. Maybe that's cheating since it's composed of, what, 5 franchises? Iron-Man, Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Hulk. Not to mention all the others to come. Fuckin Dr. Strange, Ant-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy. It's madness!
But for now, my favourite is probably the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
