Of the "Haven't seen" list, the two that stand out most to me are Tron (And I happen to like the sequel from years later, as well) and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Opposite ends of the "How eye-pleasing perfect are they" spectrum, but both incredibly interesting movies!

Man, how can you not see Robocop, Tron, 2001, etc. :) You definitely should do so. :)

Metropolis is one of my favorites, too. The current DVD/Blu-Ray does a pretty good job of piecing the story back together.

There's also of course a huge bubble of modern-day "B" movies... a couple of my favorites are Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter (which is not as bad as it sounds...) and Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies which is actually surprisingly good.
