The film by Georges Méliès 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.

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.

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.

Seven Samurai (1954)
A movie that almost every director has acknowledged as a major influence on their career in some way.

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 4606 Average listal rating (3111 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 8
Jaws (1975)
The birth of the blockbuster.
Lerschy's rating:
People who added this item 7675 Average listal rating (5460 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.
