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.

Clockwork.


easy choice here...

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???

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.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

Quinten would vote for Kubrick.

While that may be true, quinten would also vote for Dolemite over either of these movies. Doesn't mean he's right.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul
