    All the stereotypical "guy" or "OTer" movies I've seen. If it was action/drama and made since about 92 and at least fairly well known/good I've probably seen it.

    Stuff like shawshank, gladiator, SPR, matrix/LOTR/SW, fight club, all the comic movies etc I've seen and seen the similar movies. If it's that type and recent it's not what I'm looking for.

    I want recommendations in 2 categories:

    Pre 1980 or so movies in any genre that are must see "Classics". This is where what I've seen is most limited.
    Basically I've seen:
    The godfather movies
    Jaws
    Casablanca
    On the Waterfront
    Wizard of Oz

    A few I saw in highschool:
    To kill a mockingbird
    Vaguely remember 12 angry men
    Streetcar named desire

    Still need to watch:
    Gone with the wind
    Lawrence of Arabia
    and whatever else is recommended.

    Second Catergory: Comedies+Romantic comedies from any time period (including recent), that don't suck and aren't total chick flicks.
