Must See Movies List

I decided to compile a list of movies everybody should see at least once in their life. If you disagree with any of these movies, go make your own thread. If you agree with this list or think I should add a movie, feel free to comment. I know I haven't seen all the movies out there so I expect there too be suggestions. I will check back and add any movies I think deserve to be on the list.

The List (in no particular order)
-------------

Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fiction
Scarface
The Godfather
The Warriors
Citizen Kane
Psycho
Dr. Strangelove
Blazing Saddles
Escape From New York
Jurassic Park
Top Gun
Ace Ventura
Falling Down
Office Space
El Mariachi
Hero
A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints
Rear Window
The Conversation

I am actually very tired and I am doing this from memory. I will come back tomorrow and add the rest.

In my 22 years of life I have seen all of these movies an have yet to see anything better though I'm sure I will.

Alot of those are pretty hard to find at a simple local video rental store or national chain of video rental stores.

Get to watching them, they are all great movies.

Evil Dead 2. The embodiment of what a B movie should be. Other than that, Alucard hit em all.

How the hell can Mad Max and The Road Warrior not be on those lists?

You people dissappoint me.

No Akira either?

*le sigh*
