Classical Music in Movies

I'm not big into classical music but I do enjoy it. On a whim the other day, without knowing the work, I purchased a recording of the complete Bach Cello Suite performed by Alexander Rudin. As I listened to the first suite I instantly recognized the piece as the same one being performed by Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin in the closing scene of the movie Master and Commander. While looking for verification for my discovery I found this cool resource: Bohemian Opera's Classical Music in Movies list. I don't know how comprehensive it is, but it does verify the Bach suite being in Master and Commander.
