    I'll give it to
    Alien
    Predator 1/2(I liked them anyway)
    Equilibrium was cool, if only for the gun katas
    Maybe its just because I saw it last night but "Secret Window" was a very good movie, and not at all a waste of time/money/energy.

    My list.....by genre:

    Action/Drama/War: Saving Private Ryan
    Fantasy/Adventure/Action: LoTR Trilogy
    Comedy/Family/Animation: Lilo & Stitch
    Action/Comedy/Crime: Starsky & Hutch
    Thriller/Drama/Mystery/Crime: Se7en
    Documentary: Step Into Liquid
    Drama/War/Action: Braveheart
    Adventure/Romance/Animation/Fantasy/Family: Shrek
    Action/Fantasy/Sci-Fi: Spiderman 2
    Action/Comedy/Horror/Romance: Shaun of the Dead
    Drama/Thriller/Mystery: Fight Club
    Drama/Romance/Sci-Fi/Thriller: Vanilla Sky
    Drama/Sci-Fi/Mystery: Contact
    Adventure/Drama/War: Bridge on the River Kwai

    Not that this is the perfect list....I just used the categories and the imdb top rated movies by genre thing to help filter them down. I probably wouldn't use the same categories if I were just to do it from the top of my head....this is just an effective way to filter out my list of kagillions of favourite movies.

    My 2¢

    I mostly agree with Sinix' list, but don't forget:

    North by Northwest

    Absolutely one of the best movies ever made.

    I hope that Silently Roaring was talking about the Frank Sinatra Danny Ocean, and not the George Clooney one.

    Also, nobody mentioned Enter the Dragon. Given the popularity of kung-fu here, this one is a must-see.

    Last addition: for those really into special effects, Jacob's Ladder and What Dreams May Come.

    Taxi 2 is pretty sweet.

    Donnie Darko, Saving P ryan, Matrix 1, LOTR, and loads of other less recent films...

    I like Gross Pointe Blank, it makes me want to be a hitman.
