    Battle Royale -Hope you don't mind subtitles - tis well worth it. Also don't bother with the second on as it is a load of pap
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - little bit slow to get into, but I enjoyed it :)
    Zombieland - As Krikkit said - highly amusing, and Emma Stone looks rather purdy in it...

    Subtitles, that reminds me.

    Night Watch
    Day Watch

    If you're going to watch these do yourselves a favour, watch them with the original Russian audio with English subtitles. There are dubbed versions but the dubbing is pants. Trailer here.

    Try Serenity, its a good sci-fi film, if you like modern military films you could try Blackhawk Down.

    District 9 is a good film but its not out on dvd/blu-ray yet.

    If you want some old school stuff I always have time for Predator, Robocop, Aliens, The Thing (John Carpenters version although the B&W version is pretty good as well) and for a guilty pleasure I have to confess to actually enjoying Demolition Man.

    Moon,
    Harry Brown,
    Thirst,
    Mary and Max,
    Taking Woodstock,
    Law Abiding Citizen,
    Coraline,
    Inglorious Basterds.

    These are All great films from just this year and Mary and Max is one of the most stunning films I have ever seen in my life, Harry Brown has one of Michael Caines best performances and Coraline is simply beautiful.

    Maybe a bit surprised I haven't seen Gran Torino and In Bruges suggested yet. So imma let ya know those are good as well.

    Why can't I remember the name of a certain thriller/drama.. It was just a name, I thought it had Michael in it, but not sure now that I think more of it. It was supposed to be a good one but for so me reason I never remembered to watch it :D

    EDIT: Michael Clayton, there we go. Now I just need to watch it because it started bothering me.

    I'd completely forgotten about Layer Cake. It also reminded me of The Full Monty...

    The Boondock Saints is def. worth watching. Not sure if the sequal is out yet in Europe.

    I'd suggest "The Narrows" "Passengers" "Running Scared" "Taken"

    I could name more, but I guess you have a pretty big list already :)

    Left the ones I'll add to my list, thanks! Suppose the Hotel Rwanda and Tropa de Elite were first-time recommendations, and both sure are good movies.

    Also from earlier on I can recommend Taken to everyone. It's great for the times when you've just had enough with the usual action ******** and want the hero to shoot the guy and not just mess around :clap:
