Just for myself and I need some great ideas for British films. The more diverse, the better!

Here's my list so far...

The King's Speech
Hot Fuzz
Bend it like Beckham
Quadrophenia
Goldfinger
Rocknrolla
One of the Harry Potter films
Hogfather
The Railway Children
My Fair Lady
Monty Python and the Meaning of life (my favourite MP film)
Velvet Goldmine
Mary Poppins
Elizabeth

What about some good comedies, sort of Keeping up appearences sort of nostaliga ish?

Since the Olympics are on I would put Chariots of Fire on your list.
 
Add these:

The Wicker Man (the original... duh :p)
Bronson
Children of Men
Lock stock and two smoking barrels
The 51st State
 
That list needs a heavy dose of Harry Brown.
 
If I could only make one suggestion, it would be Joe Wright's Pride & Prejudice (2005). A modern classic, overlooked because of its subject matter, but it is really, really good. Great direction, smart script, perfectly paced and a great cast that all knock it out of the park.

Thinking about variety, other suggestions. I really recommend my top 5 in terms of variety. Also some of these would be considered Irish.

Pride & Prejudice (2005)
24 Hour Party People (2002)
Death at a Funeral (2007)
Brazil (1985)
Trainspotting (1996)
Love Actually (2003)
Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
This is England (2006)
The Full Monty (1997)
Local Hero (1983)
The Long Good Friday (1980)
Hunger (2008)
Atonement (2007)
The Third Man (1949)
In The Name of the Father (1993)
The Guard (2011)
