Gamer Movies and TV: What's Here, What's Missing

I can't say for sure, but my guess is that the typical gaming table sees it's fair share of movie quotes. Lord knows my group is notorious for it- things like, "You're a dead man, Ramsey!" and "When someone asks if you're a god, you say YES!" and "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun" and "Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?" and "Broke into the wrong God damn rec room didn't ya?!" They're not necessarily said in character, but they are said.

This made me think: what are your favorite 'gamer' movies? Movies that, intentionally or not, are GREAT gamer movies or TV series? What about books, comics, or other that would MAKE great gamer movies or TV series?

I'll start with three picks: Army of Darkness, Big Trouble in Little China, and Tremors

Two I would LOVE to see made? Discworld TV series and Glen Cook's Black Company series (the first three books I feel would make a great motion picture or maybe even a trilogy)

Also, if anyone even mentions the Dungeons and Dragons movie we shall take your dice bag and beat you with it.
