Given that this listing is a personal preference thing, there is a criteria I'd like all responders to follow. 1) Originality (no remakes, no book adaptations, no 'based on a true story'); 2) Intensity of Effect (includes "suspension of disbelief"); 3) Cohesion (logical progression though not necessarily linear); and 4) Complexity (no cliches, etc).

My choices:

Sling Blade
Do The Right Thing
Pulp Fiction
The Empire Strikes Back
Das Boot
Taxi Driver
Dog Day Afternoon
The Deer Hunter
2001: A Space Odyssey
Brother From Another Planet
Not for nothing dude but you broke your first rule with alot of these movies. That being said I have to agree with you list particularly Pulp Fiction and Seven. Also I would add...

Forrest Gump
Reservoir Dogs
Inglorious b*******

Oh heck, I broke some of the rules with these titles. But that's all for now til I think up more.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).
