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: Explosions! Big things going boom! And big dudes and ladies walking about from those booms very ... very ... (very ...) slowly. Today on Top Five, it’s all about the art of blowing stuff up and then not paying attention to it because that’s what cool people in movies do. The walking away from an explosion shot has become a staple of action cinema, and on the latest Top Five, we rank the best of the best. And then we set fire to the whole thing and never look back.

Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 21st 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: Never look back at something when you explode. That’s the whole point. Not looking back. You look back, you might as well just not blow it up in the first place.
