I vote Shawshank with a pretty decent chance I might switch to Pulp Fiction.

Shawshank Redemption. I liked Pulp Fiction well enough, but this was an easy vote for me.

Shawshank Redemption.
I liked Pulp Fiction a lot first time I watched it, but not so much since then.

Papillon was great!

"He smiles. The plane is gone, finally free of the island. Jack Shephard has done what he came to this place to do. He has found his purpose. He has found love. And been loved. And he has finally found a way to love himself. The bamboo sways across the blue sky. And Jack Shephard's eye closes one final time. He is gone."

ooh... neck and neck so far...

shawshank just shades it for me... although pulp fiction is one of the most quotable films ever.. i'd have to say i preferred reservoir dogs..
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

Both are fantastic movies, and it's a shame that they had to battle against Forrest Gump which won the Best Picture award that year.

However, I chose Shawshank.

Shawshank includes a lot of themes that go in Lost too. That's why I love them both.
