Russell's "The Fighter", Danny Boyle's "127 Hours", The Coen Brothers' "True Grit" (no, it's not a remake just to clarify that), Lee Unkrich's "Toy Story 3", Mike Leigh's "Another Year", Tony Scott's "Unstoppable", Ben Affleck's "The Town" & that's just naming a few films that got solid reviews. In terms of "epic"? The word "epic" is used for big-scaled films or used for classic films in certain elements like for example Victor Fleming's "Gone With The Wind", David Lean's "Lawrence Of Arabia", David Lean's "The Bridge On The River Kwai", Francis Ford Coppla's "The Godfather", Ridley Scott's "Gladiator", William Wyler's "Ben-Hur", James Cameron's "Titanic", Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan", Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings", D.W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation" & so forth.
I wouldn't say though, Michael Bay's "Transformers" is "epic" as it's just more of a visual bonanza. I mean it's a not a film with much depth by any means.
P.S. You are correct believe it or not that "Titanic" is technically a classic film even though some internet simpletons will argue the point like mad for most of the cliched hatred reasons.
