The film by Georges Mรฉliรจs was the most complex film of its time and the first to use stop motion. It was one of the first fantasy films in a time of realism.

From cross-cutting, to double exposure, the film employed many techniques never used in film previously. Also, it had the first infamous chase scene.

Griffith changed cinema with this film. As controversial as the subject matter was, it was a technical achievement and established modern cinema.

The first talkie. This film shook up Hollywood with the implementation of sound. Silent films, as well as everyone and everything associated with them, were soon cast out into the cold.
Lerschy's rating:
Disney would stick with this format of animation and writing for almost six decades until Toy Story was released in the 1990s.

MGM's Wizard of OZ was a technical achievement in every aspect of film making at the time. It was also the first modern fantasy film.
Lerschy's rating:
People who added this item 2016 Average listal rating (1169 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 8.6
Seven Samurai (1954)
A movie that almost every director has acknowledged as a major influence on their career in some way.
Lerschy's rating:
People who added this item 4254 Average listal rating (2741 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.3
Another technical achievement, Kubrick's film would influence every major motion-picture employing special effects following 1968.
Lerschy's rating:
People who added this item 4579 Average listal rating (3092 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 8
Jaws (1975)
The birth of the blockbuster.
Lerschy's rating:
People who added this item 7623 Average listal rating (5421 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.3
Toy Story (1995)
Traditional animation has become an art form of the past due to Toy Story. The first of many Pixar masterpieces, the film's technical aspects may always overshadow its excellent story and voice casting.
Lerschy's rating:

Without these films, cinema would be different today, or it may not even exist.
