Only including series where I've seen every work within said series.

Minimum of 2 films to a series.

Each film is scored individually, then the average score is the base score for the series. Any film beyond the first two will get the base score an extra 0.1 points, until the 10th entry in a franchise. 0.1 points will also be awarded on completion of every 5th film in a franchise from 15 onwards, until a maximum of 2.0 points.
Any film that serves as a clear finale to the franchise will also be awarded 0.1 points, but this can be undone if they decide to continue the franchise all the same.

Based on how good the trilogy is overall, as opposed to the individual films.
I've been very lenient with what defines a trilogy. Any first three films in a series will do, regardless of if more were planned.

Including series where I've not seen all of them yet. In the case of a film not having been seen, yet, it will be left out of the rankings - for now.

Minimum of 2 films, viewed, to a series.

Any film beyond the first two will get the base score an extra 0.1 points, until the 10th entry in a franchise. 0.1 points will also be awarded on completion of every 5th film in a franchise from 15 onwards, until a maximum of 2.0 points.

a list of 50 titles
Final episodes of TV shows, either planned as the show's finale or intended as open-ended finales in case the show didn't get picked up for another season that ended up airing as finales.

Some sense of closure is needed to count for the list.

Also, a show being revived doesn't undo a finale's finale status.

As well as rating the episode individually, I've also included star rating out of 5 as to how well it serves as an ending for the series.

Only based on the films I've seen from each filmography - but I'm working on seeing them all.
3 film minimum to a body of work.

For the record, Stanley Kubrick is my favourite director, though it's not suggested by these scores.

Only including crossovers where the crossover is a large part of the plot and not just a passing gag.

Also, only including crossovers where the crossover is officially sanctioned on both sides. If South Park put Bart Simpson in an episode without anyone's permission and he's voiced by their usual staff, then that doesn't count. If Batman fights a public-domain Dracula without any input from Bram Stoker, then that doesn't count.

Additionally, a spin-off can have appearances from characters from its source material without it being considered a crossover (Buffy appearing in an episode of Angel) and characters that left for a spin-off returning to the original show don't count (Angel appearing on an episode of Buffy post-spin-off), but if Angel had brought some of his new spin-off friends with him, then that would count.

Criteria to qualify as a cinematic universe:

1. Films must exist within the same universe as other films that could arguably be considered another franchise. In other words, indirect sequels don't count (e.g. horror films that replace the cast each time such as Final Destination).

2. Existing within the same universe as another film must be more than a passing reference or joke. The films must be viewable as jigsaw pieces that form a larger narrative when placed together.

3. There must be some degree of foresight for franchise crossovers. Two franchises reaching the end of being financially viable and teaming up together don't count (e.g. Alien vs. Predator, Freddy vs. Jason, the Universal Horror movies).

4. Typically, anthology franchises don't count and spiritual sequels don't count. A franchise doesn't need to cross over with another franchise (such as The Avengers bringing Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America together), but the idea of the films crossing over in some capacity can't be seen as ridiculous (there will obviously never be a sequel to Shaun of the Dead where Shaun teams up with the cast of Hot Fuzz).

5. Films must share the same continuity.

6. There must be at least three films in the universe.

Films set in fantasy lands or films that make heavy use of fantasy elements such as magic, dwarves and leprechauns. Bonus points for a quasi-medieval setting.

Only true musicals - not episodes where some people put on a musical within the plot, or something of that nature.

Also not including episodes of shows that are consistently musical in nature (such as Flight of the Conchords or The Mighty Boosh).

I've also included a star rating out of 5 to indicate if it was a good episode of that series or not.
