Those are good but my choices are:

Series: Robotech/Macross
Movie: Akira/Ninja Scroll/Princess Mononke (3 way tie)

If you choose those titles, you are a newbie to anime. No ofense. DBZ is good for mindless action anime, but for much else. I think the original Dragon Ball is better, although they are very different types of shows. Akira is also pretty over-rated but ok (although the manga compression effect weakens it).

Best tv series I have come across are:

Mobile Suit Gundam (including Zeta and Char's Counter Attack, excluding alternate universe stuff like Wing and G) ((I think Macross is good, but Gundam is the better mecha anime))
Space Pirate Captain Harlock
Space Battleship Yamato (this one and the one above are excelent space operas, Cosmo Warrior Zero is shaping up to be aswell)
Slayers
Lupin the 3rd (the folowing two are some great action/comedy/adventure series, and in Slayers' case fantasy aswell)

Best anime movie. This is pretty damn debateable, but two of the best I have seen are:
Metropolis (Great tale about the future's greatest city that touches upon many issues.)
Night on the Galactic Railroad (Fantastic movie that deals with talking cats, death, and the end of youth. Bet you never seen that combination before?)

I don't think I can fairly name the best anime, because I have not even scratched the surface. There are hundreds of anime series that won't even make it over here. But these are some damn good ones I've come across.

Also FYI: Manga refers to Japanese comic-books and Anime refers to Japanese animation.

I'm sorry for not knowing most of the series you've mentioned , but here in Germany they show only about 6 or 7 Manga- / Anime-series .

Well here in the US they release many series a year on DVD. I don't really know what the DVD market for your region is like though. I love the stuff, it blows normal television out of the water. The characters and stories are so much better. Basically the only tv series I watch other then it now is wrestling, or something else if I'm at a friend's house. I think I heard that some German film-makers are going to make a live-action Captain Harlock movie. I think the series is known as Albator in Germany. You wouldn't have happened to have heard about this have you?

Another good one is "Spirted Away" thats currently in the theaters...it was created by the same producers and director of Princess Mononke. I got a chance to see it and it was EXCELLENT.

Series: Robotech/ Macross - I been watching this series, since I was a kid, love the dramatics, and the fight sequences are just a plus.

Full-Length Feature: Ghost In The Shell - Complex and that certain something more, very perplexing if nothing else, actually makes you think... when technology meets spirituality, the possibilites are anything but limited.

Honorable Mention: Ninja Scroll - Also the reason why I took up Manga art, the fights scenes were very sweet, did I mention, I am in love Kagero... the beautifully deadly ninja mistress, she so tragically attracting yet so purely innocent, and I love that concept.
