There are so many films that it's difficult to know where to start and stop. If you want films from a specific genre, I'd be happy with more suggestions. I've been watching movies for 50+ years and am a dedicated film buff; I watch all sorts of movies. Are there specific actors and actresses you prefer? I listed a lot of comedies and musicals.
