Top 5 Movie Presidents
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! Every two weeks (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).
On the new episode Top Five, with the nation gripped by election fever we dive into the subject of the all-time great movie presidents. Who are our favorite onscreen leaders of the free world? What makes a great cinematic Commander-In-Chief? Over the course of movie history, we’ve had Presidents who were strong, courageous, hilarious, stupid, and sometimes combinations of the above. (Also sometimes they were vampire hunters. Movies, ladies and gentlemen. Movies.) In this Top Five, Matt picks a few of their favorites from a comfortable seat in the Oval Office (or the closest approximation he could find in New York City).
Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 22nd 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!
