[Movies] I'm Supposedly Uncultured, Help Me Be Enlightened. [Edit 2]

[EDIT: Bump.]

One of my coworkers has the opinion that I'm uncultured, because I don't sit down to watch movies that often. This is a man with hundreds of DVDs and never any money, which leads me to believe that his priority is skewed and his outlook on life thusly tweaked. However, with contact with one of my friends, also a movie junkie, I am finding myself reeling under two waves of cinema references that I am not getting.

Thus, I am enlisting help.

Starting with a base list of DVDs I own yet have not watched yet (many still shrinkwrapped), I request that anyone with interest post up to five any movies they think my "uncultured" ass needs to watch. If I own it or have at least seen it, I'll make mention, but if I haven't, then I'll add it to the list.

Anyone got any more?
