The best part of Shaknado 3 was its opening eponymous attack of the White House.

While not my highest rated film on the list, Olympus Has Fallen gets my vote.

I'm not sure I understand your title.

Maybe just "White House Movies"?

Got the idea from "White House Down" and reverted it for reasons. Updated as per your suggestion.

No love for Sharknado 3, alas, even though it was the best of the six. I yield to my classier colleagues. Frankly, it would only rank in the low teens on my list among these choices, which is suitable, since that is also the series' target demographic.
