I love Bond movies, and I think the new Bond has been the best Bond, but even that franchise has been slipping. Too much furious typing and not enough shooting and fighting.
Anyway, the list.
The Road to Perdition, if they fade it to black just before the ridiculous voiceover at the end which kind of stains the whole film.
The Terminator (original)
Starship Troopers (yes, I went there)
The Wind that Shakes the Barley
Joe vs the Volcano
Zero Dark Thirty
The Mel Brooks Memorial section
The History of the World, Part I
I'm not much of a western fan, but I'm a fan of Clint Eastwood as a director, so I'm going to add
The Outlaw Josey Wales ("I will endeavor to persevere" is still my favorite response to being asked to do the impossible)
Letters from Iwo Jima
The cute indie movie section
Safety Not Guaranteed
Valley of the Sun
Pentacost (Irish short)
And the Documentaries!
Monarchy (History of the british monarchy going back to pre-roman invasion)
This Film Not Yet Rated
The Medicated Child
If a Tree Falls
Those last two are the best statements about the current wars I think that have ever been made. Filmed without commentary from the filmaker, the imagery and subject matter speak for themselves.
Movies I hate with the heat of a thousand suns, primarily because I am the father of two awesome daughters.
Anything associated with "Sex and the City"
The entirety of the Twilight franchise, in any form.
