    First: I am not old enough to remember. The first movie I remember is RoboCop. It was pretty fantastic, but mostly because of the background music.
    Last: Fargo

    Everything since Fargo has been a huge let down, except for the Big Lebowski, which comes in close second.

    OLD: Metropolis -- but it was just imitating Robot Holocaust IMHO...
    NEW: Melancholia -- but as an example of exploiting the medium, which that particular director does very well,-sometimes. (EDIT - forgot "NEW")

    Man, such a broad question. I'm gonna pick only from the dvd's I own:

    First: Apocalypse Now
    Last: Zodiac

    Some of you are either really young, or haven't seen very many movies.

    Definitely the first. Apocalypse now is a great movie. Jurassic Park ruled to.

    obscure, not sure the greatest but my favorite for many reasons- Gallipoli (c.1982)
    One I would watch anytime I have free time - Gladiator

    I thought it was Shaving?...

    Honestly, I'm a big fan of Conan the Barbarian 1985. All the sets were fully built, all the stunts were all real, Arnold was a cartoon character playing a comic book character, James Earl Jones speaks, it has some subtle humor, and the OST was equally epic :)

    The last great movie I saw was 'Let the Right One In'

    First: Blade Runner
    Last: District 9

    Both great films. Waiting for the sequel to D9 but its a long way off, the alien weaponry is phenomenal. Blade Runner still looks the biz even today.

    I also enjoyed Death Race 3000 (not to be confused with Death Race). That was such a great movie.
