Ok, I've got lots of them going. Lets get some more:

I like dark movies in particular. I also like fantasy and to a lesser degree Sci-Fi. Not a big fan of comedy, at least no most comedies. I did like The Big Lebowski, and Fear and Loathing. I also liked Snatch... So those kinds of comedies are ok.
 
You've seen Pulp Fiction, what about Reservoir Dogs? Great film. Another one that Tarantino wrote but didn't direct is True Romance.

An interesting, low-budget sci fi film about time travel is Primer. It really sticks to the science and may require more than one viewing to really understand it.

For comedy, ever see Fast Times at Ridgemont High? How about Old School? Uncle Buck? Planes, Trains, and Automobiles? Tommy Boy?
 
Layer Cake , Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Same type of thing as snatch.
 
Revolver, Dark City, Memento.

Gummo.
It's not exciting, scary or funny. It's just odd.
I recommend it because it is very unusual, and I felt fulfilled after I watched it.
 
I am Legend, I robot, MIB, the usual ones that aren't good movies in a lasting sense, but enjoyable enough if you're bored.

I thought I Am Legend was a waste of time, I gave up on I robot half way through, MIB was alright.
 
I couldn't stand I am Legend. Gummo was oe of the best movies I have ever seen. All the other movies by Harmony Korine weren't as good though. Ken Park was a serious let down. Because of that piece of crap, I opted to not see any moe of his movies, unless a lot of people tell me it is really good.
