The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Academy Awards: 1 win, Best Sound; 2 nominations, Original Score, Art Direction

Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice.



Pulp Fiction (1994)
Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

Best Picture from 1994: Forrest Gump from Robert Zemeckis

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I voted Empire Strikes Back. Neither of them is good enough for the ultimate award IMO, but they're both pretty amazing.
