Apparently I have good taste in movies or something. I don’t necessarily believe that because I can find good in almost every movie I see, but yeah, here’s a masterpost of movies you should watch because they’re all pretty good, if not great.
Bold ones are highly recommended; bold and italics mean we might have a problem if you don’t watch this movie.
[edited 11/10/13 with movies like The Great Gatsby and Pacific Rim because reasons]
[edited 3/23/14 because why weren’t Fight Club and Se7en on this list already]
Movies designed to frighten or disturb the viewer, with more gore than thrillers.
Films that primarily use suspense, tension and excitement to elicit a reaction in the viewer. Often overlaps with horror, but with less gore.
A very specific type of filmmaking, used most commonly in horror, in which the film is presented as if the events on tape “actually happened” and were discovered on tapes or in files left behind by missing or dead protagonists.
Films that focus mostly on in-depth character development as opposed to elaborate action sequences or shocking viewers. These films are often nominated for Academy Awards.
Movies that put the heroes in situations where they face incredible odds and must physically fight their way out. Lots of explosions. Lots.

The Filmography of Quentin Tarantino:
Tarantino films are a genre to themselves. They’re even better if you watch them in the order they came out. (I will go ahead and say that I haven’t seen Kill Bill vol. 2 yet, but vol. 1 was amazing so vol. 2 has to be great, right?) This list does not include Jackie Brown or Grindhouse, due to those not being solely Tarantino.
So Bad They’re Good:
Just trust me. I haven’t seen all of these, either, but my friends and family swear by them.
In order of release date, every single James Bond movie ever made. Even the bad ones.

Let me know if a link is broken, and tell me what you think of the movies if you watch any of them! I highly highly recommend installing AdBlock Plus if you haven’t already; it’ll keep those annoying pop-up ads from ruining your movie experience (I mean unless you want ads for busty Russian singles in your area).
Disney + Bubbles of all type!
Bubble Gum/Bubble Wrap/ and one more….
