Im a big fan of a lot of the movies on your list, in particular Snatch, Lock Stock, Scarface, The Dark Knight, Pulp Fiction, Shawshank and Seven. I would thrown in " Fargo " as another fave of mine. 

A few comedies that I would throw into the mix are Flying High ( or Airplane as it was known in the US ), Caddyshack, Vacation and the Big Lebowski.
