A film with the number 12 (Twelve, Twelfth, Dozen, etc.) in its title: Short Term 12 is on Amazon Prime and I think it's criminally underseen. The cast is fantastic (anchored by an amazing performance by Brie Larson, but also including Rami Malek, LaKeith Stanfield, John Gallagher, and Stephanie Beatriz), the story is powerful. I'm going to keep recommending this one until you all watch it, darn it!!
The last film from any deceased director you like: I'm going to watch The Man in the Moon. I would highly recommend White Dog (if you can find it!). I'll also point out that Bunuel's That Obscure Object of Desire is available on Prime.
The last Best Picture winner you haven't seen: Oh, barf. It's Green Book for me. I do not want to pay $7 to rent it, so here's hoping the library has it!
A film with a title that starts with the letters W, X, Y or Z: All of these are on Prime: Yumeji, Young Adult, You Were Never Really Here

A film from the current IMDb 250 whose ranking includes the #12 (i.e. 12, 112, 212): I mean, Forrest Gump
