We have a lot of movie franchises coming out with new films this year and into next, but which is your favorite?.

As you know, last year we were supposed to have A LOT of blockbuster movies hitting the big screen. However, COVID had other plans and we had to wait a whole year for them to come out. The time has finally come for all of these movies that we have been waiting for to come out. Many of these movies are a part of some of the best movie franchises of all time. That includes movies like The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, and the upcoming films F9, Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, No Time To Die, Halloween Kills, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Matrix 4, and The Kings Man. All of these movies are a part of some fantastic franchises. Oh, and more are planning on being released next year too!

When it comes to movie franchises, there are so many good ones to choose from. How do you choose just 25?! Of all of the movie franchises out there, picking 25 was pretty challenging. That was a difficult task for me to do! However, I have compiled my top 25 favorite movie franchises of all time. Just so there is no confusion on what a movie franchise is, in this case, it is a collection of related films in succession that share the same fictional universe or are marketed as a series that have at least three installments.

Everyone on the same page? Be thinking about your favorite movie franchises and then compare them to my list! I should start off by saying that these are in no particular order...and there will be quite a few popular franchises left off of this list. Mainly because I never saw them...or they just weren't my cup of tea!

10 Other Uses for Hand Sanitizer

I discovered hand sanitizer's ability to be more than just a germ-killing product one morning while making coffee in the kitchen at work. While pouring myself a cup from a full pot, a small stream dribbled down the side of the pot and onto the white countertop. I wiped it up with a paper towel, but a light brown stain still remained. A tried a disinfectant wipe which helped a little, but you could still faintly see where the dribble had landed. Then I remembered having alcohol wipes at one point during the pandemic. They had been used up and not replaced for some time, but there was still a bottle of hand sanitizer sitting out. I squirted a little on the stain, wiped over it with a paper towel, and boom, the countertop looked brand new. This got my curious mind wondering if there was anything else I could use it for, so it was off to the internet to see what I could find. It turns out, thanks to its high concentration of ethanol or isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer can be used for all sorts of things.
