In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).

This week’s Top Five is all about the X-Men, who return to theater screens everywhere this Friday in X-Men: Apocalypse. In our opinion, the film is a bit of a mixed bag, which is kind of par for the course for the X-Men franchise. It’s had some very high highs (the Nightcrawler scene from X2! Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine!) and some very low lows. Those are the moments we focus on in our new episode. No Toad is left unelectrocuted, no reshoot hair is ignored, no great X-Men villain in a strappy leather belly shirt is left unmocked.

Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 18th episode, so check out some of our past episodes below. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes! And don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel below to catch all our future episodes. Until next time remember: Friends don’t let friends go out of the house with reshoot hair.
