Seconded votes for some already mentioned, Godfather Trilogy (I don't even mind 3), action movies I like the recent Bond movies with Daniel Craig.

If I had to nominate just one though it would have to be Pulp Fiction - Tarantino masterpiece.

My Dad was a big James Cagney fan and I became one so I’d choose

Angels with Dirty Faces
White Heat

Always liked Hitch

Rear Window
Dial M For Murder
North by North West

And Steve McQueen

Bullitt
Papillon

I always thought the screenplay to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was brilliantly conceived and then executed by 2 fine actors

More recently

Almost Famous ( great soundtrack )
Seven
Mystic River
A Few Good Men

And I always watch White Christmas on Xmas Eve .

And two probably not as mainstream:
Koyaanisqatsi (I think was early/mid 80's - with no dialogue, just soundtrack, it was a sort of time-lapse trip around the world. I thought it was amazing when I first saw it),
Second that. Koyaanisqatsi is a great film.

12 Angry Men - Probably the greatest single film of all time, Lumet's direction is a triumph
Downloaded it - definitely up there. Could see why Fonda ventured into production for it.
