It gets a bit tricky when we start to look at Superhero films, but I'd be tempted to add The Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy I and Raimi's Spider-Man as good examples.
If they released the Apes titles as individual 4K discs I would defiinitely spring for the first two - although if they released them as a deluxe box I could be tempted by all five
I saw a double feature of Soylent Green and Westworld when I was 13 years old. Both pretty great.
Gotta give some love to the two incredibly surprising (and incredibly good) recent sequels Mad Max: Fury Road and Blade Runner: 2045.
Some Of my favorites by the decade:
1950s: Forbidden Planet
1970s: Dark Star
1980s: Blade Runner
2000s: City Of Men
2010s: Under The Skin
The Time Machine - 2002 , yes the remake.
( I'll duck now).
Ought to have had Fantastic Planet and Children of Men on my list!
