Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions!  Looks like I'll be making a considerable investment in my DVD library this weekend!!!

A few more suggestions:

Rabbit-Proof Fence

Dave Chappelle's Killing Me Softly (the funniest stand-up I have seen in some time)

The Wounds (Yugoslavian Mafia Flick)

These are my pics that many may have missed.



Sexy Beast (Ben Kingsly should have got an Oscar)
Rules of Attraction (check this one out, almost nobody has. It is awesome)
Wild Bunch (bloodiest western ever)
Raising Arizona (funny Cohen brothers flic)
Big Lebowski  ("the Dude abides")
Super Troopers  (Best movie ever to watch while drunk)
Dinner Rush  (little known movie that has it all)
Miller's Crossing
Band of Brothers (OK not a movie but worth watching best thing ever on TV)

Can't think anymore I'll organize my thoughts and add some more.

Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow.

That scene in Godfather II was amazing (how could I forget about it).  Much love for the reminder!  ;)

Has anyone mentioned The Shining?

Grhamers - your list is awesome
Lavia - I love Clueless too!  (more evidence that we must share a common ancestor)

Here's a few more...

Omen I and Omen II (who can forget the creepy scene where the old man goes through the ice and drowns)

The Rain Man (Dustin Hoffman's triumph)

Brian's Song (ok it was made for TV, but a great story)

Love Story (the ultimate tear jerker)

Steel Magnolias (the ultimate chick flick)

Speaking of scenes in the Godfather II (which is my all time favorite movie)...the street festival where Vito stalks and kills his nemesis and follows the parade as he jumps from roof to roof...then he joins his family on the stoop and hugs baby Michael, that is a masterpiece.
