5. Titanic (1997)

Maybe not amongst the best cinematographic accomplisments of all time, but still one of the better ones. The fan base and grossing speak for themselves, Titanic being the second best sold movie of all time. Even though this movie started as a project through which James Cameron could try new "toys" and satisfy his curiosity he made sure that the artistic part will not disappoint. The well written script, visually spectacular scenes and top performances from both Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet make this movie a classic, at the same time helping Leo get rid of the "pretty face" persona that he has been associated with.
