I recommend:

Dances with Wolves (long and epic...but just an excellent movie all around)
All three The Lord of the Rings EXTENDED versions (they added so much content that if you're a fan, you MUST see them)
Kingdom of Heaven (totally underrated)
The 13th Warrior (just an all-around interesting movie)
Interview with a Vampire (it spans over 100 years, which makes it cool)
The Lost Boys (a fun somewhat cheesy 80's vampire flick that's actually good)
Return of the Living Dead (another cheesy 80's flick that makes fun of zombie movies and is actually somewhat creepy to boot-highly entertaining)
First Blood (the original Rambo movie...actually it was quite good and not nearly as cheesy as most of its sequels)
On Golden Pond (definitely one for the older crowd and mature people)
An American Werewolf in London (superior to An American Werewolf in Paris, which stank)
Revenge of the Nerds (the first one is classic)
The Running Man (a senseless action flick that's actually worth watching and is very entertaining)

I like most of these, but one was not mentioned that i hear quoted daily.

I recommend:

Forrest Gump (everyone likes that movie, you cant hate it, its not possible)
Saving Private Ryan (one of the greatest war movies)
Public Enemies (Depp is amazing in this)
All 3 LOTR movies (still my favorite series of movies, f*ck Harry Potter)
The Godfather (original beats all but still should watch all of them)
Scarface (because you have to watch the movie that has the quote "Say hello to my little friend.")
The Shawshank Redemption (Freeman is an amazing actor)
Pulp Fiction (violent and awesomness)
Silence of the Lambs (Hopkins is another amazing actor, the rest of the series is just ok though)
Psycho (one of the best horror films ever)
The Matrix series (first is the best, plus if you havent seen at least one of the movies you either a dumbass or have terrible taste in movies)
To Kill a Mockingbird (a classic and a good watch)
Terminator series (only with Arnold though, Bale blows and you cant beat Schwarzenegger)
Predator (best alien movie, but only the first one, again cant beat Schwarzenegger)
Alien (second best alien movie)
The Shining (best of the King movies)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (one of my favorite comedy movies)
Full Metal Jacket (has some of the best quotes you can ever find)
Braveheart (Gibson as William Wallace is awesomeness in itself
The Patriot (another good war movie with Gibson)
Jaws (because its the reason sharks are so feared today)
Gran Turino (one of Eastwood's best movies imo)
Dirty Harry (is the best Eastwood movie)
The Wizard of Oz (because it was the first color movie released)
The Bourne Identity and the series (all were good except for the last one)
Best animated movies have either gotta be Finding Nemo or Wall-E

If you havent seen at least 75% of those movies, then you do not know what good movies are, cuz all of these movies f*ckin rock!!!  Cheesy Grin Cheesy

Actually, you just included a bunch that I was going to put in for 'round 2'.  Smiley  Others you included are so main-stream that I decided not to mention them, but you've compiled a good list. 

A few more I loved were:

Gladiator (who hasn't seen it?)
Fight Club (if you saw it and didn't understand it, watch it again and maybe again after that)
The Sixth Sense (again, another one most have seen but is an awesome movie)
Platoon (possibly my favorite war movie ever)
Troy (why people didn't like this movie, I don't know)
Stick (I haven't ever been able to find this on DVD)
Pirates (the one with Walter Matthau...I had to import the DVD of this)
Kill Bill (both of them are great)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (go into it with the knowledge that the over-the-top moves are intentional and truly classic in nature)
The Last Samurai (Tom Cruise did a good job here, whether you like him or not)

I could go on and on, and I might.  Smiley

^ I knew i was missing some good ones, but i couldnt think of any others.

Gladiator is awesome
Troy is like the only mainstream movie with 'known' actors revolving around Greek mythology.
Sixth Sense was kinda gay to me, but still a good watch.
Fight Club is another good one
Last Samurai is another good one.

I didnt put Kill Bill in there because Americans trying to make a martial-arts movie always sucks big ass monkey balls. Terrible choreography, blood spatter was really inaccurate, and storyline was one of the dumbest i have ever seen.

I forgot to put the martial arts movies.

-Any Bruce Lee movie is a very very good watch
-Also, any Jet-Li movies are a good watch
-House of Flying Daggers (unrealistic, but still a good Asian martial-arts movie)

-Gone in 60 Seconds
-Tropic Thunder (two reasons, one you will never look at Tom Cruise the same, and two, it has some good ass quotes and Downing Jr. is funny as hell playing a black person)
-A Time to Kill


I could also go on and on, and more than likely also will Wink

I liked Kill Bill because it has that Tarantino twistedness that only he possesses. 

A few others I recommend are:

Romancing the Stone (it's very entertaining, despite being an adventurous romantic comedy thingy)
Excalibur (by far the best King Arthur movie in my opinion)
The Patriot (the Mel Gibson one, even if it is strikingly like Braveheart or We Were Soldiers)
House on Haunted Hill (one of the most fun horror movies to watch, period)
Unforgiven  (it was Clint Eastwood's final western and carries a lot of symbolism)
Indiana Jones (the original trilogy are all top-notch films...while the latest one is certainly worth watching if you're a fan, but not as great)
X-Men (again, all 3 are good if you're not a purist and freak out over the 3rd one especially)
Lethal Weapon (there are 4 of these, and all are great)
Shaolin Soccer (hilarious...and I recommend watching both the English dubbed one and the subtitled one as both have unique content)
Christine (one of the better Stephen King movie translations for sure)

I'll stop at these...for now.  Smiley

^ Dont get me wrong, I love me some Tarantino movies, but i think that out of all of his, the Kill Bill series is the worst. It does have the twistedness, like the whole poking out that chicks eyes and then stepping on it with her bare foot, but actor/actrees choice was also bad. Uma Thurman is neither attractive nor good at acting lol she should have stayed a model imo.

Grindhouse is a good Tarantino stint. Kill Bill not so much  Wink

X-men is good.
Indiana Jones is another one i missed.
Shaolin Soccer is really funny, English dubbed one is the best lol

Ill stop now as well and let other people post some movies that they enjoy.

Yes, I don know what Reservoir Dogs is.  I own the DVD.  Smiley  It's a good movie, but not my fave.  I think when it comes to Tarantino, people have their hits and misses with him.  I think my favorite movie he gets credit for is Pulp Fiction...by far.  It was already mentioned, so I didn't put it on any of my lists.  I wasn't a big fan of From Dusk til Dawn though, but I know a lot of people that like that one.  I guess he has a little something for everyone and a little something that everyone might not like as well.  Smiley  To recommend a Tarantino movie at all is and always will be hit and miss with various people.
