Some good choices here, I certainly agree with Dr. Strangelove, Tron and The Princess Bride.
I would submit the following:

The Sting, Get Carter (1971), The Ipcress File, Alfie, (Slight theme on those 3), Breaker Morant, If, Bob Roberts and as someone who went to the cinema with my Dad to see it in the 70s -the first Star Wars.

And the non-English language category:
Goodbye Lenin, Les Ripeaux, Le Diner de Cons, Alicia in die Staedtchen, Faraway so Close.

That'll do for now.

I loved the princess bride.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Speed (the first one)
Armageddon
Independence Day
Anything with high-tech guns and gadgets

I liked the Bourne Identity a lot, too.
South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut could have been good, but it had too much music

So back again after all the f***ing tests... ;-)

I also like Equilibrium, Star Wars, LOTR, the firste Matrix movie and... Harry Potter... (Ready to be flamed, but they are quite nice though!)

But the best movie I have ever seen is still Fight Club!!!

Nice film, but not the best I've ever seen...
Actually I think "Armitage III" is even a better anime...

Well most of the movies mentioned so far go with my taste. I'll throw a few more onto the pile.

Takedown
Sneakers
Nikita/The Assassin
Leon/The Professional
28 Days Later
The Abyss
Back to the Future Trilogy
Saving Private Ryan
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Goodfellas.

A few more than a few I guess...

I'd personally have to say for films I really like Sneakers (just for the scene where the NSA turn up really and of course the refrences in Uplink to it), Leon was quite cool, the final LOTR film, the first Matrix film, the Animatrix, Swordfish, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Monty Python: The Meaning of Life, and Bladerunner is a very cool film.

On TV I'd have to say Red Dwarf, Farscape and Bremner, Bird and Fortune (or any program similar).
