Good Movies Expanded to top 50:

I expanded my good movies list from top 20 to top 25 because I felt like there were a lot of good movies that weren't getting recognized at this rate.  But stopping at 25, I felt like there were arguably a lot of other good movies and it made no sense for X-men to hog the limelight at 25 when so many other strong contenders were available.

As such, I had to widen the pool to a more reasonable top 50 to include all the movies deserving of note.  Now I feel comfortable ranking X-men, because it doesn't leave out other classics like Back to the Future or Casablanca.

Just in case people are too lazy to check out my good movies post, I'll repost the info here as well:
