Get the pattern.

1. Fight Club -- Such a great film, just watching it will make you a tougher motherf*cker.
2. The Matrix -- Revolutionized action movies. This film created the slow-motion 360 degree bullet rotation entitled 'Bullet Time', and is rich in both story & action.
3. American Beauty -- Be warned, this is an intelligent film. The movie is very thematic, filled to the brink with relatively complex symbolism.

The 40 Year Old Virgin
Full Metal Jacket.

But it's quite laborious to list some of them really. Almost all the movies I have watched mainly comprises of multiple protagonists or woman protagonists. Dialogues have little to do in them. And so are the attire and other clothes.
Wait.. oh. nevermind.

Some Like It Hot
The African Queen
Run Lola Run
It's A Wonderful Life
Eyes Wide Shut
Once Upon a Time in the West
Special mention to Howard Hawks' movies and his clever writer Charles Lederer who is basically a master at dialogue.
Bonus ten because I can't let these slip:
The Birth of a Nation
A Clockwork Orange
The Big Lebowski
Burn After Reading
I can list many more but that'll do.
But the major super dooper mention goes to:
GONE WITH THE WIND! .

Epic Backseat moderation fail. Learn the meaning of a topic before learning backseat moderating young man.
But yeah this in the wrong section.
Saving Private Ryan
Surprised nobody mentioned Scarface.
The Godfather (All 3 parts)
Pirates of the Caribbean the first 3 parts, do NOT watch the last one, pretty boring IMO.
The Italian Job
Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Oceans Eleven/Twelve (Can't remember properly)
EDIT: I know I already mentioned 10 but The Bourne series is a must watch too.

I'm joking. It's a very good film but that description was a little overdone.

| Aw man, how did I forget Taxi Driver and The Silence of The Lambs? |
2 of my favorite films.
Haha! I was going to add Ichi The Killer to my list, although when I had a second look I felt as if the ten I already had noted down were the best movies I've seen, or remembered. If however the topic was the top 20 movies, I know for a fact Ichi The Killer and other fantastic movies would have been noted. Making a top ten list is always hard, and will always leave me looking back and wondering whether or not to change one of the titles to another.
I actually recently re-watched The Silence of The Lambs after recently seeing the original 1980's Red Dragon or now known as Manhunter. I've never seen the sequels from the 2000's, which is another reason I chose to re-watch. I'm soon going to watch Hannibal (2001), the re-make of Red Dragon (2002) and after that, most probably the newest (or so I've been informed) Hannibal Rising (2007).
After watching both The Silence of the Lambs and the original 1980's movie, I have to say Hopkins' character is by far the most influential Hannibal Lector character. Saying that, the original 1980's was forced to be changed to Hannibal Lecktor.

Into the Wild (Drama/Adventure)

2. Duel (From the beginning, it was clear that Spielberg was masterful at playing one's nerves like a banjo, as Duel duly demonstrates.)
3. Koyaanisqatsi (To quote a comment on Vimeo: Godfrey Reggio + Philip Glass + Ron Fricke = M A S T E R P I E C E !!!!!)
4. The Lion King (Breath-taking animation even today, music that will get stuck in your head, instantly relatable characters, I could go on and on...)
5. Up (Pixar at their most heart-breaking, hilarious, awesome and heartwarming best.)
6. The Simpsons Movie (Basically a 87 minute long Golden Era episode.)
7. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Simply the best Sci-Fi film ever.)
8. The Iron Giant (One of the greatest non-Pixar animated films ever to grace the sliver screen.)
9. The Dark Knight (The only superhero movie I've watched more than once, simply because of Heath Ledger's performance.)
10. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Simply put, The Simpsons, The Lion King and all the other animated TV shows and movies from the 90's wouldn't exist if it weren't for this film. Plus, Jessica is a bombshell.)

Listen, you prepubescent slanderer, I wasn't trying to be a "backseat" anything (I challenge you to cite tangible evidence to support your assertions), all I did was provide a linked topic to where I answered his question previously. I have no intention on directly answering the same (or a similar) question twice.
What the, I just noticed my reply on the other topic vanished. Never mind, I just figured it out.
By the way, a comma comes after "young" and before "man".

It's a Wonderful Life - One of the most solid pieced of moral dilemmas in film. Timeless tale, great casting and a solid experience with quite a few memorable scenes thanks to Jimmy Stewart.
Dazed and Confused - Straight up the best high school film, ever. Richard Linklater is a boss director and knows how to set atmosphere, this film is no exception. Hilarious and true subject matter. Even though the film is set in the 70s I could switch out the characters with my own friends and still see it the same way, even if we all had owned cellphones.
Lost in Translation - That thing about atmosphere comes in even stronger with Sofia Coppola. Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray compliment each other so well it's hard to believe they've never been together in another film. Then again, I've watched this film so many times I'd only see them as Bob and Charlotte.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi - Okay so this is a documentary but it's still a must-see to me. Some of the best camera work and pacing for a documentary I've ever seen. The subject matter is beautiful, and the whole thing is really inspirational. Watch this.
Eraserhead - Had to have a Lynch film here, I went with probably the most polarizing of his works - which says a lot. This film transcends consciousness and in some parts the surrealist horror/comedy of the situation just leaves you so confused that you don't know how to respond. This film is one of the most uncomfortable experiences I've had the pleasure of having.
The Graduate - Senselessness and drift. Iconic shots of the main character isolated by the arches of a woman's legs or by the pool idillic pool water around him. This film captures an angst that every teenager tries to capture in their poetry. It's coming of age on par with Dazed and Confused, but this side of it is the lonely, sexually frustrated part.
The Assassination of Jesse James - Seriously some of the greatest f*cking vistas I've ever seen on film. The plot is forward and the story is slow. Every scene is matched by reminiscent tones of earlier westerns - mostly the sense of melancholy defeat. The inevitable end of The West as we knew it. This film takes that and turns it into a character study, putting those grand ideas of bank robbing, treachery, outlaws and modernization into people. And it works so well.
No Country For Old Men - Remember that talk of the dying West and all that? Fast forward a few decades, add some dark humor and a man in an unlucky situation, and you have this film. Probably my favorite Coen brothers film (aside from Raising Arizona and O' Brother) and I think at least one of their films deserves to be on this list.
The Wrestler - So you might be able to tell that I like that whole 'dying' motif from my other selections. This story would be the apex of that. A washed out performer in a sport whose heyday was twenty some years ago. Estranged family, loveless intimacy, an attempt to get something of substance back. It's a mesmerizing film and Rourke's performance is in some ways autobiographical, which serves to give the film even more allure.
