Shiny Discs and Silver Screens

A request for some suggestions peoples. easterbunny and I have just signed up for the Blockbuster DVD-by-post service and I was hoping for some suggestions of classic must-see movies which you think my life is lessened by not having viewed.

So, come one, come all, bestow upon me your movies of niceness.

That is all.

Edit: Don't worry if you think I may have seen them, if I have you're only confirming our shared good taste. :) Come movies old, new, arthouse and mainstream.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Lost in Translation are two of the best films I've seen recently.

Oh, and Breakfast at Tiffany's!
I'll second all of those!

Some others:
Oceans 11 - so many pretty people!
Master and Commander - a really cool action documentary
American Beauty - Kevin Spacey at his best
Singin' in the rain - a proper classic
Blues Brothers - a not so proper classic
Dogma - I've always loved this film, but many people apparently don't like it.
Gosford Park - a classic murder mystery with a who's who of british acting
Ice Age - Tae-Quan-Dodos!
Shawshank Redemption - a beautiful film
Oh, do you like really really scary films? I hate them, but Dark Water (whilst being utterly terrifying and giving me nightmares) was one I could appreciate as a well crafted *thing*.

It's the one that the bloke-who-did-Ring did after he'd practiced with Ring.
