Star Trek Into Darkness 7/17/16
JJ Abrams' Star Trek films definitely work for me, and while Into Darkness is definitely not as good as Star Trek (2009) was, it does have a significantly stronger villain in Kahn portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch (Eric Bana's Nero in the first film was kind of bland but still effective and the movie as a whole was so great that it worked fine for the film.
Batman Begins 7/17/16
Following the failure of Batman & Robin, Christopher Nolan brought Batman back in a whole new way, never seen before on film (as most of the films before were much campier and comic book-ish, for better or worse, than Nolan's adaptation).
Captain America: The First Avenger 7/17/16
Like I'm totally willing to admit that there are better films on this list, hell I would argue that every film below it except Man of Steel is more well-made than this one, but the fan in me has to have it on the list, if only because of how much I love these characters.
This film is no different, with perhaps my favorite use of the chekhov's gun principle, in which something hinted at in the beginning of the film plays an integral part of the end of the film.
He pulled out the best possible performances from everyone in the film and the cinematography was very impressive (there is a fight scene in the film shot all in one long take that was really mind-blowing to watch in the theater).
Man of Steel 7/16/16
Perhaps the most divisive film that will appear on this list, I am one of the people out there that really loved Man of Steel (and on the subject I actually like Batman vs Superman too, though not as much, hence it won't appear on this list).
North by Northwest 9/23/15
There are some very impressive sequences in this film as well, with action set pieces in this film that are unbelievably well done, especially considering the time when the movie was made.
Rear Window 9/23/15
Hitchcock's use of diegetic sound (sound which is not scoring the film, but actually exists in what is going on in the shot) also helps to build the atmosphere of the film.
