Seriously, Pulp Fiction is winning?

Quentin wouldn't exist without Kubrick...  and the ultra-violence in Pulp Fiction wouldn't be possible without him either. 

no contest, in my book.

Agreed.  Although I like Pulp Fiction, Clockwork is such a surreal look at ultra-violence in a dystopian society.  And who couldn't love the anti-hero of Alex???

Also:

yep, Clockwork is hugely influential, and awesome and original besides.

of course, Pulp was very influential too. i just don't think that overall it's as strong a movie.

Quinten would vote for Kubrick.

Mister Charlie told you so.

While that may be true, quinten would also vote for Dolemite over either of these movies. Doesn't mean he's right.
