7. 'X-Men: First Class'
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Oliver Platt, Jason Flemyng, Zoe Kravitz, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Till
Best moment: Magneto, two Nazis, and a knife
Why it's an all-time great: Matthew Vaughn had absolutely impeccable timing when he cast Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence as the young versions of Magneto and Mystique, and the decision to take the characters back to the swinging '60s gave Vaughn permission to have huge fun with rebooting the series. I could watch an entire movie of Magneto terrorizing Nazis, and Lawrence finally gave Mystique the bruised soul that has always been hinted at by the films.
