Even though I have a copy of Forrest Gump with Zemeckis' autograph, I'm voting Silence Of The Lambs.

That's weird to have to choose between those two , they are so different but I'd go with Forrest Gump. What can I say, I like Tom Hanks more than Jodie Foster or Hannibal Lecter... ;)

Argh, great match-up. Could go either way.

But when Tom Hanks says "Me and Jenny went together like peas and carrots", that right there is why I vote for Forrest Gump.

Although Judy Foster has all my admiration, this movie isn't quite my cup of tea. Pangy's comment makes me think that The Silence of the Chocolates is a pretty romantic thought.

Forrest Gump, genius script, genius. This mentally impaired guy seemingly having a say in so many important historical events still makes me chuckle all those years after. Did I say genius?

Silence of the Lambs, hands down on this one.

Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster made that film every bit as brilliant as it is lauded to be. :thumbup:
