Come on guys...we are talking about 10 out of 10 here. To see movies like Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park was incredible for the time. I frankly think it holds up relatively well. The dinosaurs still look pretty realistic all things considered. But it was straight groundbreaking and changed movie making moving forward. Absolutely deserves a spot on a list like this, if you are delving into extra stuff beyond the movie.

Jurassic Park was groundbreaking at the time and man I loved it. Just does not stand the test of time for me.
Gone with the Wind, eh? See your comments about Gump....
Disagree about JP, but that’s fine. What you said about it is why I think it’s a 10. Destroyed everything we had ever known about computer graphics at the time. And like I said, it isn’t fair to compare older movies with today, because by that measure virtually every movie made this year is better than: Casablanca; Clockwork Orange; Godfather; etc.
As for Gone With The Wind, I feel similar to that as what I just stated. It had tracking shots, it had creative lighting, it had explosions. It legit changed the way you make movies. It had stuff directors hadn’t even imagined yet. The first tracking shot of Scarlett on the staircase is truly amazing movie making for the fucking 40s. It isn’t the greatest plot, but it’s also not terrible and holds up decent. Plus it’s set behind a war, and I’m a sucker for war movies.
Side Note - 1917 is shot to be a single take. Not groundbreaking, but I can’t fucking wait to see that movie. Along those lines, Children of Men may be another 10/10 movie.
