Oh nice call on the mafia movies!!! Good Fellas is excellent! As well as Casino and Bronx Tale.

I'd like to also add "Blow"-that was a good flick.

If you like surf movies, "endless summer" and "endless summer II" are really good.

A good movie -- if you have not watched it, 50 first dates. I was really surprised at how much I liked it.

Speaking of surf movies, Thicker than Water and The September Sessions by Jack Johnson are both great recent movies, done in the spirit of The Endless Summer.

Also have to add a few movies to the list:

Pulp Fiction
High Fidelity
Shawshank Redemption
The Blues Brothers
