Decade? Tricky cause I can't remember the dates of some.

300 - Superb vision and classy cinematography
Matrix - Origional and revolutionised action movies. Who didn't want to be jacked up and learn kung foo after this.
Transformers - The first movie was a sensational action packed nostalgia hit.
The Prestige - A must see. Superb mix of Sci-Fi and clever twists.
The Bourne Identity - Matt Damon kicks ass in a gritty series that never failed to excite.
Avatar - Spectacular visuals and revolutionary cinematics.
Spiderman - When this guy swung onto the big screen we all got caught up in the web.
Wall E - This animated kids film struck me. It's a beautiful love story full of humor.
American Beauty - Not sure how old this is, but it stands out.
Let The Right One In - A masterpiece, that Hollywood is no doubt going to spoil.

Matrix and American Beauty are out I'm afraid, both in the '90s  :-\

Answering this question is going to take a weekend of research!

When you look at the list of BFA winners of best film from the seventies and eighties it adds up to a really substantial collection - they made a lot of good choices. I've been thinking for a while it might be nice to do some kind of poll to fill in the missing years (1991-2007).
