After the weak tea years of the early Aughts, cinema started to kick back up in 2005, with 2006 revving up the engines once again. So when 2007 came along, the stakes were higher, and so were the rewards. 10 years on, and out of all of the year's best, there are just as many clearly defined winners that we not only still talk about, but have also left a clear mark on the movies that have come after it. With apologies to the multitudes of similarly excellent films we didn't have the room to include, it's time to look at the class of 2007's best and brightest.

Superbad

10. Superbad

Accept no substitutions on this one, and trust us, there were plenty. Superbad was not only the apex of the "teen party" genre, it's also a sweet love letter to writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's actual childhoods. Also, if it wasn't for this flick, the careers of Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, Michael Cera, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse wouldn't have shot to the heights they're at today. Especially in the cases of Hill and Stone, that's a pretty big deal.
