2. Avatar (2009)
Hailed as one of the greatest movie breakthroughs of all time where it has been viewed in classic 2D, 3D, and even 4D, Avatar, even though it has been confused with the Nickelodeon cartoon series of the same name, was a masterpiece when it comes to plot, story, and every other element that comes in a sci-fi movie. There is no mistake in what James Cameron, director of Titanic, can do to make this film a stunning success.
