I would give you recommendations but I'm hesitant because your prerequisites are stupid and make me want to kill myself.

However, I'm nice, so go wathc Sword of the Stranger. It has the greatest fight scenes in anime history.

lol. The only anime movie I like that wasn't completely eliminated by the prerequisites is Howl`s Moving Castle.

And... there are some 10-20+ year old anime films with amazing animation. It's just a matter of being able to appreciate them.

Howl's moving castle - By FAR the greatest
Metropolis - made in 2001, just watched it on TV and loved it though.
Paprika - This one is good also.
Spirited away - Also made in 2001, but the animation is still great(in my opinion atleast) and it is the first thing that got me into anime, i loved this so much and watched it recently, its a great movie worth watching.


If you havn't watched spirited away and howl's i say watch them now

Paprika and metropolis are not as great but worth watching

ain't no opinion about it, the animation is incomperably good, period. It uses so many crazy animation techniques and everything Ghibli has the highest budget in the anime industry.

Be aware that your prerequisites have eliminated many Ghibli films, which are (IMO) the greatest that anime in any form has had to offer.

No "slice of life", that's rare then..

Shin Onimusha: I know it is listed as ova, but it is 120min in length.

Seconding anything Ghibli mentioned (though some of their 80's and 90's stuff has better animation that today's average TV series )
Seconding Sword of the Stranger, an action movie you're sure to like; animation budget is high, music is excellent, and yes, one of the most epic swordfights in ever.
Seconding Paprika, though in all honesty, Kon's previous movies were better. However, the production values don't compare to the more recent Paprika.
Rebuild of Evangelion: If you're interested in the most popular anime franchise of all time but don't want to watch the oh-so-old series (), you'll want to try these movies (only one is out so far, though).

The Girl who Leapt through Time, 5 Centimetres per Second, Beyond the Clouds, and Tokyo Godfathers are probably too "slice of life" for you.

Kara no Kyoukai: Again, excellent animation and music. A set of stories based on a series of Type-Moon novels (you may know them as the creators of Fate/Stay Night) with mystery, action, drama, the works.

Millenium Actress: Just great storytelling and directing (a given with Kon Satoshi). A poignant journey through time (no time machines involved) focusing on a woman and "the most important thing in the world". It misses the 2002 cut by three months, but its animation is good enough that you probably won't notice.

Get rid of the 2002+ time limit, you're ripping yourself off.

All of the Studio Ghibli films mentioned, plus:
Nausica of the Valley of the Wind
Kiki's Delivery Service
Porco Rosso
Princess Mononoke


Also:
Akira
Appleseed
Armitage III - Polymatrix
Blood: The Last Vampire
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
Ghost in the Shell (all of them)
Grave of the Fireflies (if you can handle something that serious)
Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade
Ninja Scroll
Perfect Blue
Shakugan no Shana (even if you've seen the series, it's not bad)
Steamboy
Tenchi Muyo! In Love (better than what you might think)
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

Those are ones that I've seen and consider worth the time. For more ideas, try here:

well thats just dandy, you go ahead with that, i wont stop you.

my ''2002'' limit seems to be a problem? reason i say that is because out of all the animes ive seen, ive only liked one that was pre millenium ( that one been cowboy bebop ), so i applied the same to animated films

Sword of the Stranger, Spirited away, Kara no Kyoukai, Howl's moving castle & Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust al look decent, ill check them out.

I would not limit myself as some "pre-2002" are awesome in the animation department as well.

-Hoshi no Koe
-Tekkon Kinkreet
-Wonderful Days (it's Korean)
-Only Yesterday (even thou it's a Ghibli movie, it's not as remembered as often)
-Dead Leaves (for something very crazy and unique)
-Ghost in the Shell and GitS 2: Innocence
-Brave Story

Judging by your list of anime you liked, you might prefer Princess Mononoke over Spirited Away/Howl's Moving Castle..

maybe you just haven't seen enough fucking pre-millennium anime? I mean these are movies, here, it's not like animation is going to be a problem. 2002+ means absolutely no classics. Shit like Akira, Shost in the Shell, Ninja Scroll - the anime anyone would love that brought the medium to America all of which must eb seen by anyone who considers themselves an anime fan. And you are going to go 'oh that's old, fuck that'.

I mean would I be fucking recommending you something I didn't think you'd like regardless of age? You'll never see good shit if you're closed-minded about what to watch.

Oh, the irony. Deus, if you can't imagine that there are people who don't love Akira, Ghost in the Shell, or Ninja Scroll then your closed-mindness beats that of Voracious Hollow by at least one order of magnitude. I think Akira is incredible lame and don't let me get started about Ninja Scroll. Furthermore, there is no such thing as a must-see list for an anime fan.

And to be constructive:
Kara no Kyoukai - ongoing series of movies.
Sword of the Stranger
Genius Party (a collection of shorts actually, so maybe that's not what you want)
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
xxxHOLiC the Movie (can be enjoyed without having seen the series, I think)

I am not really a fan of movies - Spirited Away and Nausicaa failed to impress me and the Ghost in the Shell movie from 1995 I found so mediocre that it took me few years to try the TV series which funnily enough I found to be absolutely awesome.

As for actual recommendations:

Paprika
Perfect Blue (It's pre 2000 but one is way too busy with the gripping plot and atmosphere to notice much in the way of "old-fashioned animation, believe me!)
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
