Nice lists. Some comments.

Three colors trilogy: Wonderful set of films. I haven't seen them in quite a while. I probably should go back and try it again. White has a special place in my heart because it was the first film I saw at the Inwood, which is still one of my favorite "art house" theaters.

Amelie: I still haven't seen this yet, though I've been meaning to for the longest time. I did manage to see No Man's Land, which beat Amelie at the Golden Globes. It's a good movie. Pretty sad but with some humorous and light moments throughout. Not heavy handed. It's very good at showing the tragedy and absurdity of war, and is highly critical of the UN's involvement (or lack of involvement) in the Bosnian conflict, as well as the callousness of the Western media. Very satirical and very effective. It's more serious than Amelie and that may give it an edge at the Oscars.

Citizen Kane: a classic. very influential. really a perfect movie in many ways and great to watch.

Potemkin: I haven't seen this all the way through, just the ultra famous Odessa steps sequence. Hmm, I really have a few more holes to fill in my viewing. I have seen Alexander Nevsky though, also by Eisenstein, and it is absolutely brilliant, with an incredible score by Prokofiev.

American Beauty: Also a good film. It reminded me of Atom Egoyan's work though, which often features characters who video things, where people aren't always what they seem. Have you seen any of his work? I'd recommend Family Viewing, Exotica, and the Sweet Hereafter.

Assorted Kubrick: I've just begun to warm to Kubrick's films lately. I absolutely hated 2001 the first time I saw it. I can appreciate it now, but at the time I felt like my braincells were dying.

quick off the top of my head list(in no order):

the usual suspects(everyone knew that was gonna be there)
pulp fiction
reservoir dogs
national lampoons(christmas)
donnie brasco
carlito's way
fight club
almost famous
the excorcist
+ my big cheesy one ay it forward. i think it's a little convoluted but it is a GREAT idea and concept that is told well, strip back a storyline or two and you'll have a good movie in my opinion

I suppose I can live with PeeWee being at number 30.

My favorite films tend to be the quirky, wierd ones. Here are a few of my favorites in no particular order:

The Fifth Element
Twelve Monkeys
The Big Lebowski
Pee Wees Big Adventure
Mars Attacks!
Edward Scissorhands
Ghost World
Run Lola Run
Fight Club
The Meaning of Life
Brain Candy

Thats all I can come up with at the moment.

We plants are happy plants.
