My favourites (in random order)
Total Recall
Dune (Lynch)
Star Wars
Matrix
Terminator
Starship Troopers
Blade Runner
Demolition Man (most hillarious script ever)
All of Verhoeven and Lynch films in general
Eraserhead
Apocalypse Now (I enjoyed it more than the Godfather)
2001. A Space Odyssey
Supernova (a beautiful space opera film also directed by Coppola which associates with the millennium celebration)
Eyes Wide Shut
From Tarkovsky I especially enjoyed two other films shot in exile, Nostalgy and Sacrifice, simply incredible, I think these are his best films, Tarkovsky at his full potential, free of censorship. If I'm not sure Sacrifice received a Palme D'Or at Cannes in the 80ies. Sacrifice is a fusion between Chekov's Cherry Oacher and the theme of a third world war nuclear apocalypse, with the theme of father and son in the center.
Kurosawa's Seven Samurai
Brazil

Has somebody seen the new Youth Without Youth film by Coppola?

One I was finally able to see again recently:

Hell in the Pacific, with Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune - man, that is one of the greatest films on war, on its stupidity and the origins of it that can be tracked down not in politics, but in the very nature of man... fantastic, and the acting is just beyond words, especially Mifune.

I'll add a few more:

Butch cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Cisko Pike

The Ring trilogy (the original Japanese version)

X-men trilogy

I wouldn't say I'm passionate about them, but I've seen almost every film with a Tangerine Dream score!
