Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Moonrise Kingdom
Grand Budapest Hotel
Mad Max: Fury Road
Mad Max: Road Warrior
The Usual Suspects
Fight Club
Shaun of the Dead
Hot Fuzz
The World's End
Pulp Fiction
Django Unchained
Inglourious Basterds
V for Vendetta
The Princess Bride
The Hunt for Red October
Hercules (the Disney version)

This was harder than I expected, I had to cut it down to 15 at the end, but I'm sure I missed a couple anyway (and it was really hard not to include Serenity)

Edit: Dang, I forgot about the Dark Knight.  I don't know if it replaces anything, though
I'm bitter.

I am not much of a movie watcher but I clearly have different tastes than the posters so far.  Without cheating and going downstairs to look at my collection I would say:

Wizard of Oz
Snow White
Citizen Kane
Quest for Fire
Miracle on 34th St
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Sleeper
Annie
2001: A Space Odyssey
Point Break
Flirting With Disaster
Young Frankenstein
History of the World
Time Bandits
Fantasia
The Lion King

Time bandits.  Amazing I literally forgot about hat movie for 30 years.  I forgot how awesome it was.

Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

That's a tough one. Under the assumption that you had to make such a list in an apocalypse-type scenario where you were going to be stuck for years in some type of bunker or something, I'd choose the following:

Comedy:
Deadpool
The Hangover
The Change-Up
The 40-Year-Old Virgin
Horrible Bosses
Step Brothers
Anchorman
Bad Santa

Action:
The Watchmen
300
The Princess Bride

Fantasy/Mystery:
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Cheating - it can be combined to one disc  ;))
The Prestige/The Illusionist (I'd take either one due to their similarities)
Pitch Black
The Chronicles of Riddick

You ought to up the count to 20 with an additional five television series to take, too, which would be practically impossible to decide upon:

Fantasy:
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead

Comedy:
Arrested Development
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
South Park
Family Guy
Archer
Workaholics
The Big Bang Theory
The League
Bob's Burgers

Action/Thriller:
Breaking Bad
Mad Men
Deadwood
The Sopranos
NCIS

Bold = My Choice

EDIT: I forgot about Pulp Fiction. I'd have to take off one of the comedy movies to add Pulp Fiction, probably Anchorman (already have another Will Ferrell in Step Brothers).

Can't believe I forgot goodwill hunting! Also giving a lot of consideration for brooding Ryan gosling. I like both drive and place beyond the pines a lot!

Silence of the lambs

The Matrix and Signs were both good ones that I considered. Another good Mel Gibson one that I've always liked is The Patriot.

Woah woah woah, you better add Firefly to the list of shows

I don't care if it only had 1 season, it'd still be one of my picks

Edit: You also forgot Seinfeld! That would have to be on my list

Tp
Have to give this thought.  Will add as I think:

Godfather I and II
The Deer Hunter
Shawshank Redemption
Lost in Translation
The Royal Tenebaums
Pulp Fiction
Step Brothers
Saving Private Ryan
Moonrise Kingdom
Death to Smoochie
Unforgiven
Glory
No Direction Home
The Town

Death to Smoochie had two parts where a drink almost came up laughing for me. Robin Williams: " it's a c##k!" And " I gotta go take a dump." So funny.
