I have seen so many movies and I can't find any good ones that I havent seen.
Can you recommend any that you think I might not have seen?
I dont like comedy/drama/romance/etc

I like actoin/thriller/crime/war/scifi/etc

horror is... alittle too scary to watch i think.
so i have alot of horror movies i havent seen yet so u dont need recommend that.

I will let you know if I have or havent seen your suggestion(s)

happy suggestioning!

It's difficult to suggest - if you've seen "so many movies" chances are that you'll have seen a lot of the good (and generally easy-to-recommend) films, and I'd hesitate before recommending some of the the more obscure films as they generally aren't for everyone (hence their relative obscurity). How many of the IMDb top 250 have you seen? Crossing off some more of those is probably the easiest option. Alternatively, let us know what sort of films you like already!

That's always a tough question for someone who doesn't know you well. Give some examples of what you like/dislike. What about time range? Only recent movies or old ones too?

Personally I figure if you want to see something different check out foreign or festival films. But it's not to everybody's tastes. For example:
Cargo (sci-fi set in a space hauler doing a delivery that goes way differently than the crew expect)
Moon (sci-fi set on the Moon, worst job contract ever)
Series 7 (action/drama about people killing each other on TV)
Lucky Number Slevin (crime/action about a guy in the wrong place at the wrong time)

I don't know you at all, so I can't make any recommendations for you, so this is a suggestion for all: Watch Firefly, and then watch Serenity. Do it in a day if you can. xkcd became infinitely better after I watched Firefly and Serenity.

If you're a fan of 2D animation, it might interest you to know that DC has released top-notch stuff in the past few years. In some cases, the voice actors from the Justice League animated series reprise their roles. Among the top, in no particular order, I would place:
  • Superman/Batman: Public Enemies
  • Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
  • Batman: Under the Red Hood
  • Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

The thing I like about DC animated flicks compared to others is that they don't kiddie down their stuff. In America, it seems like 2D cartoons are either strictly for kids/family or strictly for adults. DC's flicks (overall) fall between the two extremes. For example, you probably don't want a kid watching Red Hood because there's a blood in it. On the other hand, it's not a gore fest.

Also, The Labyrinth. Never mind the cover; it's misleading.

If you like Notebook you will love mean girls and devil wears prada, both worth watching.

What is your idea of action/crime/war? Good guys vs Bad guys with a damsel in distress, where most of the storyline the bad guys are 'winning' only to have their super awesome incoherent plan thwarted by the good guys right at the end, resulting in the hero and damsel living happily ever after knowing they saved the world?

It's easier to recommend movies if you post examples of ones you enjoyed (genres aren't enough). That said, here's a few that I enjoyed:

Bandits (Romatic comedy about bankrobbers)
Cyrano De Bergerac (A recording of a very well done play. Black comedy romantic drama. There are many recorded versions, but I recommend the 2008 version starring Kevin Kline. [netflix link])

Runaway Jury (Law thriller, about someone inside the jury trying to sell the vote of the jury to either side of a major lawsuit against firearms)

The Hunted (Now retired civilian trainer for the military has to hunt down one of the military students he trained who went rogue after going crazy working as a CIA assassin)
Spy Game (Less action, more spy and espionage stuff, told after the fact by a CIA handler's less-than-honest report to a CIA comittee trying to look for an excuse to let the CIA handler's rogue agent be executed by the Chinese)
Heist (Gene Hackman, wanting to retire (because he got his face caught on camera), runs 'one last job' for his fence/recruiter, using his skilled group of criminals to try and rob an airplane carrying French gold... Unfortunately, the fence, knowing it's his last job, plans to keep all the gold for himself)
The Score (A team of skilled thieves are forced to take on a younger stranger, because the stranger already has set up the heist and is the one who approached the team's handler with the job)

I just watched Michael Clayton two days ago, that was interesting too, but not fantasticly so.

The complete Bourne trilogy is definitely a favorite of mine; I haven't seen the fourth one yet (which is not starring the same character, and not made by the same director).
It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

I watched the notebook now and I think it was a waste of time.
The trailer really fooled me showed a sec that theres some war in the movie... but its just like 3mins war in total in the movie.
its really just 2 hours of romance and drama...

If you want to see romantic comedy redeem itself as a genre, watch the Serbian film black cat, white cat.
