Marathon Movie List for Science Fiction and Fantasy Fans

Marathon Movie List My marathon movie list is actually several short movie lists. Even though they’re short, it would take more than a few days to watch them all. That is, unless you refuse to sleep.

I’m only listing some movie series consisting of three or more movies in each series. I may list all the movies in my movie collection some day, but it won’t be today, this month and probably not this year.

These are the movies I watch when I want to kill a day at a time. It’s usually when I have absolutely nothing else I want to do.

The Harry Potter Marathon Movie List

I haven’t read any of the books and I probably never will. I have, however, watched every movie in the series. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is a spin-off, the first of another movie series based on the Harry Potter universe. Here’s the list of movies in the original movie series:

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (2010)
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Marathon Movie List

  • Thor (2011)
  • Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

The Pirates of the Caribbean Marathon Movie List

I enjoyed the first three movies more than the fourth. Perhaps because it was nearly a continuous story. Here’s the list, without the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”:

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006)

The Star Wars Marathon Movie List

  • Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002)
  • Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  • Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) – Originally titled “Star Wars”
  • Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  • Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983)
  • Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015)

Other Marathon Movie Lists

There are other movie series that I didn’t list. Perhaps I will when I revise this article. They’re mostly comic book characters: Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and X-Men.

There are some I don’t have, but intend to collect, including all the James Bond movies. I have to have something to do when I get so old I can’t really do anything else.
