High IMDB rating not on top 250?

I am interested in compiling a list of movies that have higher than a 7.5 IMDB rating that are not on the top 250.

I am doing this strictly to get film titles out there for myself and others to put on our netflix queues that has flown under our radars.

example:
serenity 8.0
shop around the corner 7.9
before sunrise 7.9 /sunset 8.1

etc.

Most of these had some sort of internet hype, so you're probably aware of most:

Dark City (1998) - 7.6
Equilibrium - 7.7 (still say it feels like a STV movie, but some people love it...)
The Illusionist - 7.7
Akira - 7.7
City of Lost Children - 7.8
A Very Long Engagement - 7.8
Delicatessen - 7.9
Ninja Scroll - 7.9
Survive Style 5+ - 7.9

The Wicker Man (1973) - 7.7
Mysterious Skin - 8.0
Chungking Express (1993) - 8.0
Dirty Pretty Things - 7.6
Gattaca - 7.6
Dead Man (1995) - 7.6
Cube - 7.5
Primal Fear - 7.5
Barton Fink - 7.5
Chasing Amy - 7.5
The Game - 7.6
Nine Queens - 7.7
Brick - 7.7
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - 7.8

The Decalogue actually has a higher rating than the #1 movie, but it's considered TV so it isn't counted.

Are you looking for movies with ratings high enough to be on the list, but aren't due to not enough votes or movies that are just below the ratings cutoff?

Im talking movies that have similar or higher ratings than films currently on the list. Good stuff so far, although a lot of well known films.
