19. Batman Begins (2005)

Don't let anyone fool you - this movie is even better than the sequel. I can forgive the hokey ending as this might be the best super hero movie ever made, and it's definitely the decade's best franchise reboot.

A perfect combination of spectacle and character beats, this is the new prototype for a successful studio tentpole that ushered in the trend of bringing character directors on for huge studio movies.

And Christian Bale is the fucking man.
