Shouldn't that be Chun?
Never Back Down gets points because it recaptured the feeling of the old 80's MA films.
WMA, Princess Bride.
True. It was either that or see Brazilian films (i.e., Madame Sata, Besouro, etc.).
Play It To The Bone- Boxing
Warrior (2011)- MMA
Bourne trilogy- JKD Kali
To me Seagal's first movie, "Above the Law" or "Nico," depending on where you live, has the most recognizable aikido.
I thought the Bourne films were largely escrima?
I don't know where to stick that MA-wise but it's a pretty awesome movie:

The Bourne films were choreographed by Jeff Imada, who has an extensive background in both FMA and JKD, courtesy of Guro Dan Inosanto. So you could make the case either way really.
Judo : Throwdown
Ninjutsu : Shinobi No Mono
Pencak Silat : The Raid
Karate : Kuro Obi

How original of me.
(To someone who doesn't do martial arts)
Only the strong- jungle karate
Anything by Bruce lee- karate
Anything by segal- karate
It kinda goes in like that.

Enter the Dragon: Jeet Kun Do (not a style, rather a methodology)
Jet Li's Fearless: Mizongyi Kung Fu
Choke: Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (it's a documentary about Rickson Gracie)
