I'm trying to make a list of "must see movies" for my own entertainment and wanted to see what the playground had to add. feel free to add anything you like that you feel people should see.

here is my list so far:
zombieland
johnny dangerously
toy story 1
kill bill 1&2


I guess I have a mental block after these because I can't think of anything else even though I know there are hundreds of movies I've left out

Jurassic park 1 is one I cant believe I missed. I saw it when I was 3 and according to my mom didn't move the entire movie. (I loved dinosaurs when I was little)

I'm a simpleton when it comes to movies. haven't seen many, and I don't need a heavy plot or emotional investment to keep me engaged. That being said I really, really like the Bourne series.

Blood Diamond is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time as well. Completely turned me around on DiCaprio too. I thought he was a total bust until that movie.

Can't go wrong with Training Day or Man on Fire if you need a Denzel fix.

Zombieland is the perfect blend of stylized horror/comedy. I could watch it any day of the week.

O Brother, Where art thou? Is great, simply great.

Being a cop who was going through college when Super Troopers came out, it has to be on any favorite moves list of mine.

The Prestige is also pretty fantastic. Though it may not be for everyone.

While I'm not much of a pro wrestling mark, I did enjoy The Wrestler. Something about how it was shot, really grimy and gritty. Again not for everyone but I imagine most of the readers of this forum would approve.


And last but not least for the documentary buffs. 9/11 directed by Jules Naudet, and Gedeon Naudet is probably the most engaging 130 minutes of footage I've ever seen. There's no conspiracy theories or anything like that. They were embedded with the first latter company to arrive on scene at ground zero. Footage from two blocks away at street level when the first plane hit. Also footage from inside tower one WHILE tower 2 is crumbling to the ground. I cannot begin to describe what this videography does to you as you watch. Regardless of where you stand on the subject of 9/11; whether you're a patriot of the USA or not, to see this footage is simply mind-boggling. An absolute must see.

Forgot to add. Has anyone seen that new one yet called WEC 53? It was just released the other day and it's probably one of the greatest things I've seen in years. Shame they won't be planning a sequel.
