American Psycho - All time favorite of mine. It's not a horror movie even though the title may make it seem like one. It has got a dark sense of humor though.
Guild: Noble By Design
Characters: Vorlok (Human Bard/Fighter), Trollokk (Paladin/Monk)
Assuming you want recent-ish movies and have seen many classics and modern classics (thinking, say, "Snatch", "Evil Dead", Izzard's "Dress to Kill", "Vampire Hunter D", Besson's original "Taxi", correct me - and watch those at least - if not), I second the previously-mentioned "The Dark Knight" (along with "Batman Begins"), "Juno" as well as "The Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk."
Others I can see over in my disc stack that may be interesting:
"Vidocq" (French, absolutely fantastic)
"Charlie Wilson's War"
"Memories of a Geisha"
"The Manchurian Candidate" (the new version, with Denzel)
"The Bleak House" (2005 BBC version)
"Inland Empire" (David Lynch, if that is an instant-yes or -no)
"Last Samurai" (2005ish, not the one from 1980 or so)
"Tropic Thunder" (just because of Cruise)
Oh, and the new Bonds are pretty good - I was very surprised, I have not liked anything after Connery thus far.

Got to agree with a lot of what’s already been posted. However I have to second 404error’s nomination of “Up”.
Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
- Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
- One loot system to rule them all. (Including Cannith Crafting, and Named Loot.)
- Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
- Adjusting Challenge XP so that they're worth running more than once.

I don't think it's available yet, but you should look for Inglorious Basterds, which was incredibly fun! Quentin Tarentino + Brad Pitt + killing Nazis! What more could you want? This is somewhat graphic and extremely violence-ridden.
If you haven't seen The Dark Knight (Batman), you're doing yourself a disservice; Heath Ledger's performance was...Oscar worthy (which he won posthumously). I don't know how better to describe it, except that I can't recall ever having seen a movie where I thought, "He must win an award for this."
The animated films, Up, Coraline and Wall-E were all really fun, though much of the joy of seeing the first two was in their 3-D presentation, which I'm not sure you can get at home (not the typical red/blue glasses). Up had more emotional impact that I'm used to from an animated film.
Going less recent:
Animal House; Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Scrooged; Blues Brothers.
The last 3 movies I rented the other day were Angels & Demons, Sunshine Cleaning, and High School Musical 3...howz that for a strange mix?
Hmmm, this is getting me curious.
I'm probably used to more impact from animated films and series, since I watch anime (ie I doubt this will top the impact that ef - A Tale of memories and ef - A Tale of Melodies had on me) but such high ratings is making me really curious.

DDOwiki.com, #1 source for DDO information.
I have to say there have been a number of good movies listed so far, but I'm disappointed that no one meantioned one that should be a must watch for any DnD gamer: The Gamers and The Gamers II: Dorkness rising
For those of you who have seen it, I've been in group with players like the Red Bard.
Borro you said that you liked comedies...there you go...you wont be let down.
