After months of vainly trying to think of movies to put on my Netflix queue, I've decided to do what everyone else does these days--consult the Internet. Or, in this case, my LJ friends. :-)

I'm looking for recommendations for movies, preferably in the following categories (since stuff that falls in these catalogs [livejournal.com profile] esrblog will likely be willing to watch with me):

Action/thriller;
Science fiction;
Fantasy;
Historical drama (i.e., costume epics);
Western;
Cartoon/animation;
Comedy OTHER than romantic comedy (I'll use [livejournal.com profile] esrblog's definition of "romantic comedy" here, namely, "pretty people behaving stupidly.").

It's cool if you happen to suggest something we've seen, but I'm hoping to get a sizable number of recommendations for films I hadn't heard of out of this meme, so I will provide a few guidelines:

We have seen:

* All the Star Trek movies;
* Both Star Wars trilogies;
* The Lord of the Rings trilogy;
* All 5 seasons of Babylon 5, including the pilot movie;
* The entire FIRST season of the new "Dr. Who"

You may assume that we've seen all of the science fiction, fantasy, and animated feature full-length movies that have come out in the last 5 years. But DON'T assume we've seen anything else--you may be surprised at what we've missed, since we're not really regular moviegoers and have never been. Also, as the above list suggests, feel free to suggest TV series that are out on DVD--it's a cinch we *won't* have seen them, since I haven't watched TV since the 2004 Winter Olympics, and for [livejournal.com profile] esrblog it's been a lot longer.

Any suggestions are deeply appreciated, whether I end up taking them or not. Thanks!
