Reccomend Some Good Movies?

I have been expanding my DVD library lately and I am looking for some good movies to purchase. The thing is, I am looking for some that don't have a bunch of nudity/sex and don't have a lot of language. I don't care if they have the occasional f-bomb or if they are rated "R"(about %75 of my movie collection is), I just don't like a lot of language. And violence dosen't bother me. And please don't turn this into some kind of debate or anything. I am just looking for some good movies that would fit my taste.

I was looking at Equilibrium. Would this fall under my specifications? I am a big Christian Bale fan. What are some other ones? List away.

Update:

Ok, let me add, I mostly like action/war/drama type movies. And no kid/family movies. Nothing against them, they are just not my thing. On one of your lists, I saw stuff like Heat, shawshank, etc. Don't those either have a lot of language or nudity?

    I don't watch a lot of films with a lot of laguage, and very few with nudity. I can name a range of films that everyone can enjoy.

    Léon, Seven, The Green Mile, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", Goodfellas, The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, Pan's Labyrinth, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, The Usual Suspects, Reservoir Dogs, The Silence Of The Lambs, Fargo, Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, American Beauty, Full Metal Jacket, The Last Of The Mohicans, The Deer Hunter, Heat, Ronin, Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction, Casino, The Pianist, 2001: A Space Oddysee, There Will Be Blood, Raging Bull, Letters From Iwo Jima, Planet Of The Apes, Batman Begins, Blade Runner, Unforgiven, Gladiator, Die Hard, Spartacus, Platoon, V For Vendetta, Children Of Men, Thelma and Loiuse, Fight Club and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

    A few of these have quite a bit of language (mainly Goodfellas) but none have any nudity, none that I can remember anyway. I usually hate nudity in movies.

    I second the movie Memento! It's great but you'll have to follow along closely. Also, there is a French movie called With a Friend Like Harry. It has subtitles but it's a great thriller. The Bourne Identity and Supremacy are great action thrillers too.

    Night of the Hunter

    Ran--excellent

    Battle Royale

    The Machinist

    Frailty

    The Professionals

    Seven Samurai/ The Magnificent Seven--both are brilliant.

    Tora! Tora! Tora!

    Dog Soldiers--a fair bit of profanity, most of it British slang, but very good.
