Kate's to-view list

So this is what I have, thus far, after a few days of brainstorming, This is what I need to watch, period--just to have seen it--or watch again in the name of film study. Just about all of them are movies, though a couple are anime series and one's a British comedy series. The key (for the individual titles, anyhow) goes like this:

bold - movies I have seen all of at least once.
italic - movies I have seen at least part of, but not all of
plain - stuff I haven't seen or have only seen a very, very tiny part of

Some were directly suggested, some is stuff that everyone's seen, some are titles that I've heard thrown around and caught my ear for some reason or another.

Suggestions are encouraged, welcomed, and indeed begged for. If you want to reinforce a particular movie on this list, or warn me about one (just because you say it sucks won't prevent me from watching it... because there is still something to be learned from even the worst films), feel free.
