I know that from what i wrote one could rate most porn movies as good movies, but that was not what i meant, really :P
going along with Saizou, I say something intellectually stimulating.
Most "deep" movies are too slow or long but some that stuck with me are:
Dead man: A MUST WATCH esp. if you like Johnny Depp
Pi: nerds will love
jacob's ladder: whats going on?
Das Experiment: prison experiment gone wrong
Old Boy: slow but disturbing and imagery will stick with you
Seven samurai: really long but I sat through it all
Metropolis: extremely old take on the future, revolutionary silent film
Repo man: oldie but goodie
lost highway: a trip but can be confusing
smilla's sense of snow: end was weak but still a good movie
That being said I think the best movies are ones I can watch more than once...
Shaun of the Dead
Jackie chan's earlier movies in HK and australia (his hollywood ones suck)
napoleon dynamite (oddly I hated it the first time I saw it)
Happy Gilmore, Pee Wee, and Ferris Beuhler are getting old now but are good
ya your thinking is gud...
I agree all these movies are amazing but most of them aer heavy movies, if u want something lighter but amazing, there is always the classic 12 angry men
i would like to recommend you Simpsons movie, if you like cartoons. Its really awesome!! I love all the Simpsons episodes. it makes you laugh.
