Roger Ebert has written a "102 movies you must see before…."
Have a look and see how many of the so called must see movies you have seen. The ones that are chosen for the most part are good, however there is a bunch of titles that should be in there from more recent times, Fight Club is the most recent title on the list (1999), and it's the most recent by a good majority.
What other titles should be on it? There are some amazing movies that have been released in the last 20 years or so. I mean things like "The Life Aquatic" should be in the list of should see movies. It's a masterpiece of both cinematography and story driven comedy.
