23. Beowulf (2007)
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Stars: Angelina Jolie, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Crispin Glover
Though overshadowed by bigger box office hits of the year like Spider-Man 3 and Transformers, Robert Zemeckis' cinematic retelling of the epic poem of the titular warrior (Winstone) tasked with slaying the beast Grendel (Glover) was a huge step forward for 3D filmmaking. One of the first films to mount 3D projection on a large scale, Beowulf pops and wows in all the right places, from Grendel's sexy mom (Jolie) to Beowulf's fire-breathing, golden dragon son.
