Let's try to get a list of movies everyone should see at least once. So, everyone list up to 5 movies that haven't already been mentioned (i'll update the OP) til we have a decent sized list of movies everyone should see.

First I have to say, I don't like anyone's list except for one movie on Shelgarr's list, and that'd be Shawshank Redemption. I think it would be a waste of time to list 5 of my choices, my tastes are so different than most of y'alls. But here heres:

While You Were Sleeping
Raising Arizona
Shallow Hal
Somewhere In Time
Willie Wonka And The Chocolate Factory
