I've been getting into watching movies lately, and thought I'd (selfishly) ask what everyone's favorite movies are and what you would recommend everyone (and I) should watch. I just watched Amelie, a good French movie. Some of my personal favorites I'd recommend are Love Actually, Stranger than Fiction, and Ratatouille. If you've seen all three of these you'll know there's a common theme, but if you haven't seen any of these, I wholeheartedly recommend you see them.
Anyways, I look forward to hearing what all of your favorite movies are, and what you'd recommend people see! Please and thank you.
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

Ok... my list of recommended movies will not be quite as long as Ayames =P But here goes:
The Matrix Trilogy Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy Back to the Future Trilogy Lord of the Rings Trilogy Oceans Trilogy (I think I like trilogies xD ) Gladiator The Last Samurai Hitman (Best game based movie I've seen) Almost anything by Monty Python
And some anime: Princess Mononoke Spirited Away Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
And in case you do like anime and want some good short series that can almost be watched as if they were a movie =P: Dominion Tank Police (4 Episodes 160 mins) New Dominion Tank police (6 Episodes 180 mins) Geobreeders (3 episodes 90 mins) Geobreeders 2: Breakthrough (4 episodes 108 mins) All those four are hilarious action comedies =)
If I think of any more to recommend I'll ad them later =P
I would also like to recommend, in the noir section:
M (1931) The Testament of Dr. Mabuse Gilda The Maltese Falcon A Touch of Evil Boondock Saints Eqilibrium The Killers (1946) The Killer (Dip huet seung hung) (1989) Murder, My Sweet Night of the Hunter Out of the Past Kiss Me Deadly Brick Blade Runner The Manchurian Candidate (1962) Double Indemnity Momento
This is just off the top of my head. I've been on a dark/noir/crime kick. These are not your feel-good, love-conquers-all films. Quite the opposite, in fact.
