Which is your favourite?

I'd have to go with Shawshank myself. Fantastic adaptation, interestingly a complete flop on release. I'm sure the name didn't help.

I still find Lord Of The Rings impossible to get into, CGI's will always look like CGI's to me, and nothing ever seems to happen. I think most intelligent people will find its inclusion pretty ridiculous but expected. The others are pretty darn good. Don't understand why Godfather is placed above the sequel though......

The Shawshank Redemption for me, mostly because it was a very loyal adaptation of Stephen King's masterpiece.

Schindler's List... thats an amazing film so I would go for that one.

Perhaps send this film to the Iranian dictator and get him to comment on it and his denial attitude... the frackin prick.

Of the above, Pulp Fiction is the only one that would make it into my own Top 20.

Bring out the Gimp ffs.

On the IMDB page for Pulp Fiction, there are some good quotes :-)

Jules: What does Marcellus Wallace look like?
Brett: What?
Jules: What country you from?
Brett: What?
Jules: What ain't no country I ever heard of! They speak English in What?
Brett: What?
Jules: ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER! DO-YOU-SPEAK-IT?
Brett: Yes!
Jules: Then you know what I'm saying!
Brett: Yes!
Jules: Describe what Marcellus Wallace looks like!
Brett: What, I-?
Jules: [pointing his gun] Say what again. SAY WHAT AGAIN. I dare you, I double dare you, motherfucker. Say what one more goddamn time.
Brett: He's b-b-black...
Jules: Go on.
Brett: He's bald...
Jules: Does he look like a bitch?
Brett: What?
[Jules shoots Brett in shoulder]
Jules: DOES HE LOOK LIKE A BITCH?
Brett: No!
Jules: Then why you try to fuck him like a bitch, Brett?
Brett: I didn't.
Jules: Yes you did. Yes you did, Brett. You tried to fuck him. And Marcellus Wallace don't like to be fucked by anybody, except Mrs. Wallace.

Even better:

Jules: I don't wanna hear about no motherfuckin' ifs. All I wanna hear from your ass is, You ain't got no problem, Jules. I'm on the motherfucker. Go back in there, chill them niggers out and wait for the cavalry which should be coming directly.
Marsellus: You ain't got no problem, Jules. I'm on the motherfucker. Go back in there, chill them niggers out and wait for the Wolf who should be coming directly.
Jules: You sendin' the Wolf?
Marsellus: Oh, you feel better, motherfucker?
Jules: [relieved] Shit, Negro, that's all you had to say!

I cannot distinguish between LoTR, Shawshank and Pulp Fiction.

I don't agree that LoTR is shit, I think its feking brilliant. What CGIs look so bad? Compared to Alien 3, the special effects are International vs Division 4. In fact I recall saying how it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between real backgrounds and the set. I think most astute people would agree.

Pulp Fiction is possibly the second best film to quote from, behind only Aliens of course.

Schindlers list for me,full of emotion and some fine acting as well.
Ok and it made me cry quite a bit.
