Who makes the Best Movies…?

The battle for Theme parks - who makes the best movies.

The battle for Theme parks who make movies or actually movie companies who have Theme parks is obviously between Disney and Universal. Both companies had made lots and lots of movies. And both have had great hits and flops.

With Disney buying Marvel and now Lucas Films, they are well positioned to improve their movie division. Plus they own Pixar, thanks to Steve Jobs.

Universal has had some block buster movies over the years. Despicable me, Bourne series, Jaws, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park and of course ET just to name a few..

Maybe it depends on your personal taste but my question is: Who makes the best movies between Disney and Universal?

Disney has Star Wars, therefore they are better.

I believe Universal has created the "better" movies. Though Disney has some great ones...

I can use my hands to count Disney movies I consider "classic/great" (Pixar not included)

For Universal, I'd likely need my toes, too.

So, Universal.

Dom seems a little biased... considering that 3 of my Top 10 favorite movies are from Universal, I gotta pick them.

Im not being biased Andy. In fact, ET and BTTF are in my Top 10. But IV-VI beats the crap out of both of them, plus I have 3 more Disney movies on there. Anyone wanna take guesses? ;)

Dom said ..."wookie.."

Never mind Hurricane Sandy. Dom misspelled a word from the world of Star Wars???!!! He forgot the last "e" in Wookiee!!!

THAT is a true sign of the apocalypse.

Dom, I think you'll find if you actually look at the original question, its "Who makes the best movies between Disney and Universal?" - Disney did not make any of the Star Wars moves, therefore your answer is invalid to the question.

Ok, but I'm still giving the edge to Disney by 1%
