This is what is on the list page at http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068300057/...:
"To talk about the topic, go to this page.
The question is in the title. All these movies have similar themes that are in Exodus. A reluctant Moses-like figure leading an oppressed group to a promised land or safe haven. With the exception of "Mister Moses" and "The Devil At Four O'clock", they are chased by army of oppressors seeking to capture the fleeing group, like Pharaoh did in Exodus. And like in Exodus, the leader doesn't enter the promised land or safe haven. They all carry the themes of sin and redemption, rebirth and hope. Which did what the title asked the best?"
What is not on that page is that this really did start off as a face-off between "Logan" and "Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome" because of the similar Exodus themes. But "Mister Moses" kept sneaking into my mind. And then "The Pied Piper" and "The Devil At Four O'clock " came later. Though the list page is set for chronological order, I really did enter then in that order.
I'm willing to delete entries except Logan and Mad Max. They stay and are set in stone. I am willing, but reluctant to add more onto the list. I am willing to cut "Face-off" from the title if the list grows to large.

I haven't seen the rest of movies.  Logan.  Great idea.
