I guess you've already seen Dr. Strangelove, 2001 and Full Metal Jacket. All some of the greatest films ever. I'm not big on films, actually, though a few I think are good, are:
A.I.
The Back to the Future films
Wayne's World
The Blues Brothers
Die Hard 4.0, simply because it's so over-the-top. Mindless entertainment.
Sunshine. It's been a loooong while since I've seen this one, but I've been wanting to see it again, as I remember it being quite interesting.
Tropic Thunder's also a lot of fun, if you haven't already seen it.
Head of State. It's stupid but funny.
I thought The Book of Eli was pretty good too.
Green Street Hooligans
If you know a little about Star Trek, then The Wrath of Khan might be worth watching.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. You've probably already seen this, but if not, then watch it!
This one is kinda pointless, but either way, I enjoyed Love. Mostly because of the atmosphere in it. It's very different.
Interstella 5555, because Daft Punk
Rubber, because Mr. Oizo
Also, courtesy of Hushed-Massacre: Redline.
And for some anime weirdness, there's the Evangelion movies (3 out of 4 have been released so far). It's been a while since I watched them (the first two), but they're supposedly good, if you can wrap your mind around them. They're basically remakes of the original NGE series from the 90'ies, but with a slightly different story. Also, because Japan and because Alpine A310 (and later a Mazda Cosmo Sport).

I'm sure there's more I've forgotten, but yeah. This'll do for now.

Movie - IP MAN 8.1(Must Watch :cheesygrin: ) , How To Train Your Dragon 8.2 (Trust Me Its Good) ;)

TV Show - Dexter 9.1 (If you have time you should watch this your definitely missing out on a great show if you haven't watched Dexter.) first few seasons are on Netflix btw.

Anime - Death Note 9.1 (even tho the chances of you watching this is 0 I put it here cause it is the best anime Iv ever seen.)

City of god - the one that beans mentioned wasn't my type of movie but I reckon youd like it for some reason. :)

i'll be honest i havent seen full metal jacket, even though its one of stanley kubricks best films, and i havent seen dr strangelove, they're both defo waiting to be watched though!!

the only films ive seen from that list are the back to the future films, green street, hitch hikers guide and interstella. ill be adding the rest to my watch list thanks for the imdb link

i heard 'the wire' and 'dexter' are amazing and apparently im missing out on great cinema for not watching them just because they're not films.

yeah and i heard death note was good, its just i disregarded it cause it was anime, my friend used to be obsessed with this show called bleach, but i used to think it was a load of crap,

ill defo have to watch IP man soon then, since your the second person to recommend it, and its good that you're choosing films that are on the top 250 :D it makes my quest a bit easier, but my love for films isnt all about the top 250, so if you've got any that arent on the the top 250, but are your faves.. please tell me

and i dont have netflix Ny

Yes the IMDB top 250 has pretty much all the gems in it :cheesygrin:

Here's my recommendations (I could post dozens of great films, but gonna only post some that come to my mind right now. Not necessarily my top 6, but great movies nontheless):

Snatch.
Blow
The Departed
Limitless
Memento
Intouchables

(this last one is the most recent great movie i have seen. The kind of a movie that leaves a wide smile on your face :D )

The Forbidden Kingdom (Brilliant Martial Arts film)
Ponyo (Childhood :cheesygrin: )
The Room (It's so bad)

If you haven't already seen Django: Unchained you should watch it tonight.

Watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It's on netflix. Jack Nicholson is incredible.

How familiar are you with Woody Allen's movies? How about Wes Anderson?
