As a followup to my 'must see' list.. this list is a bunch of movies that are just too damn good to miss out on.

The Great Race
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
A Funny Thing Happend on the Way to the Forum
The Producers
Around the World in 80 Days
Journey to the Center of the Earth
The First Men in the Moon
The Mouse that Roared (a better book)
Being There
The Omega Man
Soylent Green
Planet of the Apes (heck, the whole series)
2001: A Space Odyssey
Paint Your Wagon Clint Eastwood sings!
The Inspector General
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Clash of the Titans
The Day The Earth Stood Still
This Island Earth

This is by no means a complete list, but I think all of these movies deserve to be seen. Some are funny, some are thought provoking, some are just downright marvelous cinema. I don't think there's a bad one in the bunch.
