Jacob Hall writes about one of his picks: Minority Report.
The film is an engrossing look at a startlingly realistic future where psychics are used to predict murders and "Pre-Crime" units arrest would-be killers in advance. It is also a rousing, muscular action film in the vein of Raiders of the Lost Ark and the only film in recent memory to have a jet-pack chase. A jet-pack chase. It raises fascinating questions about choice and destiny and how even the best intentions can be abused and corrupted. It features oddness not seen from Spielberg since the '80s, including a cackling Peter Stormare and Cruise pursuing his own rogue eyeball down a hallway.
They did leave some very good titles off their alphabetical list. I'd have gone ahead and put Avatar on there for how it looks alone.
