Bubbawheat over at Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights (another blog title I'm jealous of) passed me the baton to his very interesting 10 Best Super Heroes relay. This isn't just any old relay where you swap one, add one, and keep going. His rules are very specific:
1. The list of movies will be passed to another blogger who will post their list within a week.
2. The blogger will take their list, remove 3 movies – with explanations, and replace with 3 new movies – with explanations.
3. If a movie lasts five rounds without being removed, it becomes locked in; it is permanent and can no longer be removed from the list.
4. If a movie is removed three different times, it is locked out and can no longer be put back onto the list by someone else.
5. Once four movies are locked into place, bloggers will replace 2 movies.
6. Once eight movies are locked into place, bloggers will replace 1 movie.
7. Once all ten movies are locked into place, the relay will be complete.
Here's the relay as I received it. The locked titles are in bold.
The Dark Knight
X-Men: First Class
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
X-Men: First Class - This is not the best X-Men film out there, so it simply cannot stay.
Kick-Ass - Because it's kind of overrated, and I have another "random person becomes a masked vigilante movie in mind."
X2: X-Men United - Now THIS is my favorite X-Men movie.
Super - Super may be the least well, "super" movie on this list, but I absolutely love this little seen indie and I think it deserves a spot for charisma alone.
It was tough only removing 2, I actually wanted to remove several, but this was a fun twist on the normal relay. I'm passing this long to the very funny M. Brown at Two Dollar Cinema
A Fistful of Films
The Focused Filmographer
Life vs. Film
Dell on Movies
Jeffrey K. Lyles’ Movie Files
