100 Basic Training Movies at Nerd Academy

This is a list of 100 films that every nerd needs to see. Not just Sci-fi, or Fantasy, or Superheroes, etc. I mean, of every film ever made, which 100 do you expect someone who calls themselves a nerd to have at least watched once (or be able to lie about watching)?
I'd love suggestions for revisions. Also, I didn't really list this in any order.
