The Dark Knight (best movie I have personally ever seen, of course being a fan of evil clowns makes it better, but it's still amazingly good in any case really)

LotR trilogy (can't miss 'em)

Starwars (can't miss 'em)

Any movie with a deep and honest message, that makes you start pondering about certain things :p (quite many, for me atleast, that's why I won't name 'em)

Also, and this one is major... Anyone who liked the old Batman: TAS (the animated series) and similar cartoons, MUST see Justice League. All the episodes! I still watch an episode or two on Youtube every now and then. Pure superhero (and villain of course) goodness. :p

I think it's quite good, considering that one person made it all alone. Except for the voice acting.

yeah it was good for one person to make but i just didnt like it and i think the voice acting did add to me not liking it.. might watch it all later if i can

Well back in the day thats how I felt about brad pitt, he was a no talent hack that got into pictures because people thought he was pretty. Then I saw 12 monkeys and that all changed (oh yeah, 12 monkeys goes on the list if no one said it already). I saw Kalifornia (another good movie) after I saw 12 monkeys and it confirmed it. I later learned that he was in True Romance and I didn't even recognize him as the rasta stoner.

So yeah, hopefully Hartnett can be like Pitt and get some good roles that actually shows talent. Otherwise I would put him on the 'punch in the face if we meet on the street' list too.

Leonardo DiCaprio fell in that same category for me. Then I watched "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and realized just how well that dude can act :shock:

I'll try to stick to new titles, sorry for any repeats:

The Italian Job (Original, although remake is good too)
The Thomas Crown Affair
Catch Me If You Can
Brahm Stoker's Dracula
Spirited Away
Love Actually

All the Sean Connery Bond films
Casino Royale
(above three are examples of the three Bonds of my life, the weakest being Brosnan in my opinion, but all worth watching)

And, strictly for the cinematography, Planet Earth (preferably on an IMAX screen, or the largest screen you can find)

Blue is the new red!

And yeah. Daniel Craig brought a raw intensity that made Bond a bit rougher and unpolished, which fit considering this is a restart of the series.

The movie is French and perhaps hard to find a decent sub in english for it, but I still think it's the greatest movie ever made

Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain

Makes you fall in love with Paris and the atmosphere that it radiates in a completely new way

Hmm.. Well, a lot of what I'd add is already taken such as Aliens (which I assume covers Aliens II) and Shindler's List.

I'd add Merlin because it was a rather amazingly good film made for TV instead of theaters.

I'd also add Rambo. How could any of you not add Rambo? Movie had a lot in it besides bad ass guy vs others.
