At the beginning of each year I make a list of the movies I intend to see in theaters and I check them off. Is there an app for this? Here's my list from last year if anyone's interested!

Male Leads with Repressed Rage
20 willianswalker I'd add John Cameron Mitchell's Shortbus. Also, though the movie isn't very good, Gus Van Sant's Psycho is an experiment worth remembering. Edit- Tangerine should be here too.
116 HaichPete O Brother, Where Art Thou? Is the most important film in the series of impacting 20th century cinema. That started the standard for color correction you see in every single movie today.
128 Stokkolm Nice list. Gravity should be up there. Using the ground/floor as a point of reference for what is shown in a frame is a core concept of filming and also human vision. Gravity throws all that away and puts us in an environment in which "up" and "down" are relative. Of course, not the first movie to use 0-G, but it used it in innovative ways. Also, Borat maybe? In a way it's basically hidden camera sketches thrown together, but the way Sascha Baron Cohen was able to improvise lines and react to unpredictable situations in character was pretty unique.
29 jawni Gonna plug Coherence. I don't think there has ever been a mindfuck movie done as subtlely or cohesively. What you think are continuity errors are actually important details that reframe what you're seeing.
25 Paddy2015 Maybe it will take a few years to judge what films were truly groundbreaking in terms of influence but Victoria, Under the Skin and Boyhood felt pretty innovative to me
54 TXDRMST I'm surprised "Locke" hasn't been mentioned. It's just Tom Hardy driving in his car, no other characters are ever shown on screen, only playing a role in the story through the phone calls he makes and receives. The viewer goes in knowing nothing about what's going on and his situation unfolds as the film progresses, revealing more and more about what's going on in his life. I thought it was ridiculously engaging with such a simplistic approach.
18 maurosQQ The longer I look at this the less I understand why some films are on there. Really weird and random list.
53 DatPiff916 Oldboy(original), Children of Men, City of God, Apocalypto, Bamboozled, Bronson I'm tempted to say 8 Mile simply because I thought it was pretty clever that the climax of the movie was basically wrapped into a few freestyles, it made a mediocre movie very enjoyable. I really really *really* want to say Tron Legacy, but while my heart is telling me yes, my mind is telling me no.
33 SleepingAntz If Avatar is up there for doing entire environments in CGI, then the Star Wars Prequels should be up there too. Not even trolling.
16 patrickwigington May I suggest the Star Wars prequels for their technical achievements? Jar Jar was the first motion capture main character, and Attack of the Clones was the first hollywood film shot entirely with digital cameras. Plus, the extensive use of computer animation has become typical in hollywood movies today.
49 Sinisterminister77 I'm a little surprised Birdman wasn't higher. That movie was innovative on multiple levels
5 maurosQQ I wonder a bit that Synecdoche, Adaption and Enternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind are all there, yet Anomalisa, which is imo the most inventive of Charlie Kaufmans movies, isnt on the list. Anomalisa did something with being that puppet film, that can only work as a puppet film. They way it visualized the characters perception was really incredible and inventive.
5 TheCaramelMan Memento
6 Polskidro I really don't see how most of these are innovative.
4 Moody_MadEye Fantastic list but I would personally switch The Lobster and Dogtooth.
4 bhucewayne That's a strange list. Do you mean innovative in structure and form or technological innovation?
14 Angeleyez1989 LOTR was one of the first movies that ushered in a lasting change to the way medieval based movies look. Gone are the braveheart and Robbin Hood Prince of Thieves days. X-Men made lasting changes to the look, set design and musical scores for many comic book movies following it. Before that each comic book movie franchise had its own look and feel that couldn't coexist is the universe of another franchise. For example Tim Burton's Batman universe can't really merge with Richard Donner's Superman. Judd Apatow movies also seem to have a very strong influence on today's comedies. Avatar always gets thrown out but 3D movies always come and go as passing fads. In addition to that, the rest of the movie looks very much like a James Cameron movie. The Marines look like they're from aliens. There is a fight involving mechanical suits sort of like the power loader on aliens. And the ships look like the drones from Terminator and the drop ship from Aliens. So I hesitate to say Avatar is innovative. These are examples of watershed movies that seem to have a lasting influence that still exists
