    Snatch
    - this movie is hilarious and great to quote from in real life situations

    Heat
    - kinda sad but there are so many reasons why this movie is great, especially Niro's character and how he develops

    Goodfellas
    - how hasn't everyone seen this yet, one of the greatest gangster films ever

    Godfather 1 & 2
    - um, there isn't much to say about these two films apart from the fact that they are considered to be possibly the best ever- and a lot of life lessons to be learnt

    Casino
    - edge of the seat stuff, especially towards the end, must watch

    Tinker tailor soldier spy
    - melancholy, some people find it very slow and difficult to follow but once you do get it, it's fantastic

    Inglorious Basterds
    - pretty funny, you have to watch this for christoph waltz, he was amazing. Also if you hate nazis, you'll love this

    Usual suspects
    - not only is it very profound and gripping the whole way through, but my god the ending, the best ending in any movie, ever, no questions asked.

    Funny games (newer one)
    - idk why I'm putting this on here, don't watch it, just if you like psychological horror and torment. It's messed up...

    Donne Brasco
    - this movie needs way more attention, Johnny depp and Pacino are fantastic in it, it's also quite sad

    Matrix
    - not only is it philosophical but also has some great action scenes

    God on trial
    - very profound BBC film about Jewish prisoners in a concentration camp having a trial on God, asks you some serious questions, excellent film - search for it on YouTube

    Untouchables - for the music, and de Niro ofc

    Can't leave out Galdiator ofc

    I have a whole list of great movies on my IMDb account if you want more

    - 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    I mention this one because it was released in 1968 so a lot of people on here will say "eww, so old". It is incredibly well made, especially for its time period. Very profound.
    Oh god, not this movie, not only is the ending just freaky, I wanted to jump of bridge from boredom for half of the movie. I really don't get the hype about this movie, overrated. Just my opinion tho

    Fair enough. But its slow-paced for a reason. Its portraying macro-evolution, then the birth of the technological singularity. Its painting a picture in a realistic time frame.

    And the end is definitely freaky, but its very fitting.

    Still though, you have to admire its reach, realism and predictions of technological advancement considering when it was released.
