As cliche as it is, yes this is a film I think everybody should see. This is basically a textbook example of how to make a film.

Say what you will about this film, but you cannot deny how much of an impact this film had. It inspired a whole generation of people, and that alone makes it worth seeing.

This is cheating, but I'm counting The Godfather Parts I and II as one movie.

Yes, all of these are technically one film, so I'm counting it as such.

This is the adventure film done to the absolute best. Indiana Jones is such an iconic character that passing up this movie is essentially not a choice.

As much as I dislike the beginning and ending, I have to admit the special effects are impressive, even decades later, and the middle of the film is fascinating. Every Science Fiction film after 1968 owes everything to this film.

Vertigo (1958)
This isn't my favorite Hitchcock film (that would be Rear Window) but this one is his best film bar none. It's perfectly crafted in every way, from the pacing, the characters and the plot.

This film has inspired so many other films, has so many unforgettable moments, characters and lines, that it's impossible to ignore it.

You know, people always say the 1001 films or 2001 or 3001 or whatever films to see before you die. But whose got that kind of time. So, I'm going to narrow it down. In alphabetical order, (that way I'm being fair) these are the 25 films that I think should be seen before you die (that's more reasonable than 1000 don't you.) And yes, some of these are films I haven't seen yet, but I'm not dead yet, so I still have time.
