Boost My Anime IQ

It occurred to me that most of my anime knowledge is restricted to classics like Ranma 1/2, Miyazawa's movies, and a few relatively recent series like Cowboy Bebop. I'd like to broaden my knowledge of anime, and I've found that, in the past, my best best has always been to get recommendations from friends.

So, what should I put on my Blockbuster list?

Below are some of the things I've already seen (in whole or in part):

Bubblegum Crisis
Cowboy Bebop
Fruits Basket
Future Boy Conan
Galaxy Express & Galaxy Express II
Ghost in the Shell & Ghost in the Shell II
Kare Kano (His and Her Circumstances)
Kiki's Delivery Service
Lupin III
Maison Ikkoku
Mamotte Shugogetten
Mobile Battleship Nadesico
Ping Pong Club
Princess Mononoke
Project A-Ko
Ranma 1/2
Record of Lodoss War
Sailor Moon
Spirited Away
Urusei Yatsura
Vampire Hunter D
Vampire Princess Miyu
Wedding Peach

ETA: El Hazard, Grave of the Fireflies, The Mini-Goddesses, Vexille, Voices from a Distant Star

As you can see, it's a pretty old-school list. There may be a couple others I'm forgetting, but this is the bulk of what I've seen. So, what do you recommend?
