RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981)

The first Indiana Jones movie defined its genre for more than one generation of moviegoers.

BRAVEHEART (1995)

This epic basically invented modern Scottish nationalism despite a total lack of both subtlety and interest in actual history.

BLADE RUNNER (1982)

This extremely atmospheric neo-noir about androids and flying cars helped revolutionize science fiction with its combination of cynicism and neon.
