So I'm pretty bored and was just wondering is there any good films you could recommend. I like a little of everything, these films could be in cinema right now or out on dvd.

Ok since you didnt make any specific criteria... I thought I'd try to come up with some lesser-known movies that probably wont get mentioned here, but are well worth watching.

If you like thoughtful time travel movies, I recommend: Primer. This is an awesome movie that was made on a super low budget. It's also quite mind-bending and you probably have to watch it at least twice to figure out what the heck happened.

If you like action, I recommend Dredd. It's a really good straight up action movie, much better than the original one with Stallone.

If you like classic sci-fi (like 1950's era) then I recommend Forbidden Planet or The Day the Earth Stood Still. Both good and interesting even today. Definitely skip the remake of the latter with Keanu Reeves.

If you like comedies, I recommend Idiocracy.

And finally a couple of other recommendations...

Limitless is pretty good and has an interesting concept of a pill that allows people to basically become geniuses as long as they keep taking it, but has some severe side-effects if you stop.

Cabin in the Woods is kind of like a horror movie, but more of a meta-horror movie combined with sci-fi.

Taegukgi and Saving Private Ryan are the best War films that I have seen in my entire life.

Mississippi Burning and 42 are the best American Civil Rights films that I have seen in my entire life.

Happy Gilmore and Batman and Robin are the best Comedy films that I have seen in my entire life.

The Matrix, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are the best meaning-oriented and theme-oriented films that I have seen in my entire life.
