One is too hard obviously!
I do see some names that made my eyebrow raise though, for example someone mentioned 'phonebooth'...really!? The one with that twat Collin farrel..really!?
Anyway, my list would be similar to Lord Eldon except maybe without Braveheart and saving private ryan. I would also add to mine Eraserhead, Aguirre, the wrath of god, The shining and i must admit i do find Commando hilariously good as well as this i'm also a sucker for cheesy kung fu action so i'd add Drunken master,
hell'z windstaff,
wu tang-versus ninja,
shaolin versusn ninja..
Added to this..
Hardboiled
The killer
Bullet in the head
Ichi the Killer
Battle Royale
Visitor Q
Old Boy
The other 'sympathy for... vengeance' films
Infernal affairs trilogy
Evil dead trilogy
The other 'dead' trilogy ( old versions only)
braindead...
phewww..thats a lot

Hard to choose really. I'm not really into serious films but it depends what mood I'm in.

Probably The Big Lebowski at the moment.

My favourite, of all times, is "The Godfather". Specially the first one.
Then, "The Constant Gardener", "Dancer in the Dark" , "The Wall", "The City of Lost Children", "All about my mother", "Goodbye Lenin!" and "Dead Poet's Society", namely.
Most part of my dreams, fantasies, fears, values, fascinations, agonies, and even madness, are represented in these movies.

I'll try to limit the list to some four or five movies. It's a hard choice, but someone's got to do it :D

I'd say...

He Died With a Felafel In His Hand
Frankenstein Jr.
Kill Bill (them both of course)
Mulholland Drive/Lost Highways/any David Lynch

There would be a lot more of 'em, but those are the first ones I think of when I'm asked the question.

OK, I forgot one of my favourite movies ever: The Village, by M. Night Shyamalan. I watched it thinking "OK, I'm about to see a nice horror movie", and it shocked me, for its atmosphere, its almost elegiac feeling, the message it conveys, and almost everything about it.
AND Bryce Dallas Howard.

Others ,
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre( both the original and 2003 remake)

Hostel IandII
Ju-On

A movie I need to see is "Begotten" seems to be a very disturbing "film".
