He suggested me some movies (to watch).
He suggested me some movies for me to watch.
He recommended me some movies (for me to watch).

"Recommended" sounds a bit more like a voluntary initiative "on his part", may (or may not) suggest "he" was prompted by me (I asked him to suggest).
But it's not a rule written on stone, "suggested" could be also used the same way "recommended", there's room to flexibility.

Second sentence is the correct one. "Recommend/suggest me" only makes sense and is correct if you're the one being recommended or suggested, think of a context where someone recommends you to someone who's hiring new employees. I think there's a grammar explanation for this that goes along the lines of transitive or intransitive objects or verbs or whatever but I'm not entirely sure how to explain it, all you need to know is that it's not gramatically correct, LoL! You'll still see even native speakers saying it like that though (more so recommend me than suggest me) but technically it is not proper English so you might want to avoid it.
