1. Batman Begins/The Dark Knight (2005/2008-) – Christopher Nolan’s reimagining of the Batman franchise has had a profound and rippling impact on not just comic book movies, but film in general. TDK’s box office shattering run isn’t even complete yet and already studios are trying to copy it.

The darker, more realistic take was something that hadn’t been done before in comic book films. Instead audiences had seen a slew of mediocre to poor comic book adaptations or the hokier Spider-Mans. It was also one of the first “reboots” of a franchise, erasing the previous bad memories and starting from scratch, a new trend that seems to be sweeping through comic book properties and other potential projects.

Since then numerous movies have referenced the Nolan style for their own restarts, including a RoboCop reboot, a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, another Terminator trilogy, and a reboot of the rebooted Superman character.

Nolan’s desire as a filmmaker to shoot scenes in IMAX format enhanced the final product. But the suits were happy to count the extra revenue it brought them. Jon Favreau is already kicking around the idea of shooting parts of Iron Man 2 with IMAX cameras.

It’s still very early to see how much of an impact the new Batman will have, but it has already become the most influential of the past decade.

2. Sin City (2005) – Robert Rodriguez’s stylized crime thriller ushered in a new way to make movies.

After RoboCop 3 was a disaster, Frank Miller was reluctant to venture into Hollywood again. But with the success of comic book movies in the past few years, Rodriguez felt graphic novels deserved their own attention. He put together a “proof of concept,” a short clip that showcased the look and technical capabilities.

The film was shot with a “digital backlot,” or a green screen. There were very little sets designed or location shoots, instead filling those in with computers in post-production. It was even among the early productions to shoot a full-length feature with digital cameras. The technique allowed Rodriguez to shoot it on a more moderate budget, while keeping the visual feel of the graphic novel.

Sin City set in motion a new era in lower budget action movies, primarily 300 which regularly receives undeserved credit for the technique. But it also influenced Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Speed Racer, The Spirit (another Frank Miller creation), and an upcoming Voltron movie.

(Update: I apologize for this, but Sky Captain was actually made and released before Sin City. Thanks to everyone in the comments section for calling my dumb mistake out.)

3. The Blair Witch Project (1999) – Another film from the industry-changing year of 1999 and another example of how the Internet changed the movie industry. (Well, this is an Internet blog about movies, so maybe I’m biased.)

Blair Witch created “viral marketing.” Burdened by a small budget, the brilliant minds behind this tiny film figured out how to create a buzz by spreading information via the Web. Before YouTube, MySpace, and the now standard “official movie website,” the team was able to harness the power of the Internet to reach a massive audience with little resources.

Rather than put out the usual desktop wallpapers and flash graphics to lure moviegoers, they tried an innovative approach. They pretended the footage was real. It made the film experience that much more chilling when strange things started happening to the actors genuinely reacting on screen.

The hand-held camera style, improvised lines, and pre-conceived mythology paved the way for many films after it, most notably Cloverfield which borrowed the same viral campaign and shaky camerawork. But even The Dark Knight benefited from the grassroots approach, building their own buzz through off-beat methods.

To date, The Blair Witch Project is still the most profitable movie ever. It cost them $22,000 to make and it grossed $240.5 million worldwide in theaters.

4. The Matrix (1999)
– Before this breakout hit no one really knew who the Wachowski brothers were. But that’s not what made this film influential.

The W bros changed the direction the science fiction genre was headed. Other than the Terminator movies, most recent sci-fi movies were set in space with laser guns and warp speed.

Their philosophical action movie rooted the story in reality, borrowing from and popularizing anime and manga series along the way. It ushered the subgenre of “cyberpunk” into a new era just as the Internet was becoming a major resource for the industry. The core belief system that spanned the eventual trilogy even spawned it’s own religion called Matrixism.

They also incorporated martial arts and made it new again for a generation jaded with the likes of Jackie Chan. This opened doors to mainstream appeal for 2000’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and its own ballet fighting imitators.

Not to mention the famous “bullet time” effect, a technique lifted from filmmaker Michel Gondry. The spectacular visual effects team earned an Academy Award for their work, marking the first time a movie had beaten Star Wars for the effects Oscar.

Unfortunately, the violence and style may have had an influence on the Columbine High School shooting just a month after the film’s release.

(Update to clarify: Do I think those psychopath kids saw The Matrix and decided to kill their peers? Absolutely not. That’s ridiculous. But two teens walking around in black trenchcoats similar to the film’s costumes, it obviously had some effect on their warped minds. You’d have to be blind not to notice the connection. Feel free to disagree though, plenty of you have already.)

5. Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
– This independent film has influenced other indies, and its reach is still being felt. The main thing it did was pave the way for a record-breaking film festival acquisition (at Sundance) to become a top dollar grossing movie and a Best Picture nominee. A formula that would be repeated the following year by Juno. The phrase “this year’s LMS” will continue to be thrown around for a while, I think.

It also made the careers of a few new Hollywood players.

At the time of filming, Steve Carell was a relatively unknown actor, a “Daily Show” correspondent spinning off into a new career. But 40-Year-Old Virgin, a U.S. version of “The Office,” and this movie solidified him as a new comedy star with plenty of acting chops.

It also made a star out of child actor Abigail Breslin (who was nominated for an Oscar) and Paul Dano (who would later be featured in There Will Be Blood). Plus brand new writer and Oscar winner Michael Arndt is now writing for Pixar and the new Toy Story 3.

6. Lord of the Rings (2001-2003)
– The epic adaptation of such an “unfilmable” trilogy of novels is a task that still doesn’t seem feasible after it was accomplished.

A studio had to sign off on dumping massive amounts of up-front budget ($280 million) into a series for a relatively unknown horror director that wanted to film back-to-back-to-back movies over a period of eight years. The gamble they took on this (with a huge payoff, might I add) was enormous.

Peter Jackson co-wrote and co-produced it, filming it in his native New Zealand, a relatively new site for Hollywood productions. The widespread exposure of the beautiful scenery increased tourism in the country.

The special effects and techniques used ended up bring the Weta Workshop to prominent projects, much like the creation and use of Lucasfilm/ILM following the Star Wars trilogy. It also utilized the early stages of motion capture before it became a common tool for movies and video games.

The final installment, The Return of the King, won 11 Oscars for each of its 11 nominations, a rare feat. But it’s the first fantasy film to ever win “Best Picture.”

7. The Polar Express (2004) – A lot has been said about the creepy, lifeless eyes of its animated characters, but this adaptation of a popular children’s book was the first full-length 3-D animated feature for the IMAX.

Before Express, movies were filmed and specially made for the ultra wide screen format, but its conversion and financial success (it outperformed flat screen showings by 14 times) changed all that.

It’s director, Robert Zemeckis, would later further the technology by combining the 3-D IMAX experience with motion-capture capabilities for Beowulf. But Express was ahead of the 3-D curve before animated and now live-action movies were being released in the format.

Now Disney/Pixar and DreamWorks have announced all future animated movies will be available in 3-D. Meanwhile, other studios are scrambling to form alliances with IMAX for bigger numbers and bigger screens for their blockbusters.

8. Bowling for Columbine (2002) – Controversial filmmaker Michael Moore had made other documentaries before, but nothing quite as relevant and mainstream as Bowling for Columbine.

By linking the tragic events of Columbine High School to the geopolitical state of the world after 9/11, Moore tapped into an emotional response towards violence, especially in places where Americans felt safe.

Love him or hate him, Michael Moore brought documentaries to a broader audience through discussion of his films as much as his loud off-camera biases. He opened the door for Morgan Spurlock’s Super Size Me to change policy at the corporate juggernaut McDonald’s. He paved the way for a slate of recognizable new docs with famous talent, like March of the Penguins or An Inconvenient Truth. These two movies accompany three of Moore’s own films as the top five most successful documentaries of all time.

There’s even a spoof coming out about Moore and his movies called An American Carol.

9. Moulin Rouge! (2001)
– Baz Luhrmann’s musical created a resurgence in the popularity of live-action singing stage adaptations. By mixing MTV Generation songs and recognizable Hollywood talent (Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor), the film reached out to a new audience for the genre.

Rouge! was nominated for “Best Picture” that year and it paved the way for the more mainstream musical Chicago in 2002, which was not only considered for but won the top Oscar.

Before Moulin Rouge!, the last musical to gain such attention was All That Jazz in 1979. Since then movies have had a steady stream of song and dance films like Dreamgirls and now a new trend in adaptations of popular stage productions (Hairspray, Mamma Mia!).

10. The Sixth Sense (1999) – There were twist endings before this movie, but The Sixth Sense redefined the surprise ending for the next decade. People still think of this movie when someone says, “there’s a twist.”

The ending was so unexpected that it created the “spoiler warning” around the time that news and reviews for film started making their way to massive audiences through the Internet.

It also established a lengthy career for a director we’d later realize was terrible, M. Night Shyamalan, and introduced Haley Joel Osment as a premiere child actor.

(Updated to fix spelling of HJO. I apologize to his fan club.)
