How the hell can I choose between these two? It's like Sophie's Choice for chrissakes!
how can i pick between these?
This choice hurts... but I have to pick Shawshank. Just such an amazing narrative, and a masterfully paced story.
It's clearly Shawshank.
Pulp Fiction.I still love you Shawshank.
The Shawshank Redemption isn't a good movie. The pseudo-philosophical narration annoys me to no end. Yeah, I get it. Prison sucks. Pulp Fiction is so dynamic and full of cinematic joie de vivre that The Shawshank Redemption's dour self-importance can't possibly compete. I have no idea why so many people worship The Shawshank Redemption. There is nothing special about it.
Wow! Two REAL best movie of all-time contenders. For me, Shawshank is the better all around film but every film fan should own a copy of each of these jems.
Shawshank gets it for me.
Two all time favs! Shawshank gets my vote.
Pulp Fiction wins for me. Shawshank was better than what I expected it to be, but great and all can't beat Pulp Fiction. It's just awesome.
Pulp Fiction for me.
Went back to Pulp Fiction. Shawshank has dropped a bit.
I don't love Shawshank, but I do really like and highly admire it. Pulp Fiction didn't do anything for me. I've often wondered if I would change my mind if I saw it again, but my more recent reactions to other Tarantino films haven't given me a desire to go back and find out.
Two films that were inexplicably beaten by Forrest Gump for Best Picture of 1994. The nihilism of Pulp Fiction gets to be off-putting after awhile, whereas The Shawshank Redemption is consistently excellent throughout. Shawshank for the easy win.
Shawshank Redemption vs Pulp Fiction is like Aliens vs Starship Troopers. No contest at all. I don't believe Pulp Fiction is as good as people think.
Wow, this is ridiculous. I honestly cannot choose, I'll have to watch Pulp Fiction again to see how it holds up.
Shawshank crushes here. Andy, Red, and Brooks are unstoppable...
Nah I wouldn't say Shawshank crushes. They're about equal in my eyes. They both have great acting, awesome stories, and excellent writing. Well I LOVE the ending of Shawshank, but I also love Pulp Fiction's powerful ending as well, and I find the story more exciting, and the screenplay more wonderful. I would say the better film is Pulp, but my favorite is still undecided.
These two and It's a Wonderful Life are my three favorite movies of all time. It's just so hard to pick... The path of the righteous man... is through the poster on the wall... Shawshank by a nose. It's a photo finish
pulp fiction was far more genius than shawshank so no trouble picking one for me
Pulp Fiction is by far supirior to Shawshanks. Pulp Fiction wins here.
No doubt about this topic, Shaw Shank is the absolut winner
Although pulp is great, shawshank is one of those movies that you experience once in a lifetime. For such a simple film to be so affecting and to reach the hearts of so many moviegoers; one has to realize that it is an untouchable in 99% of flick chart match ups. Shawshank is the answer to this matchup.
The shawshank redemption.
Pulp Fiction is entertaining but it didnt crack my top 10. Shawshank on the other hand did.
Shawshank is just something special.
Two mesmerizing films. Pulp Fiction is my number 1 though and so I'm going with that. Shawshank is still amazing though.
Pulp Fiction just wins it. This is one of the hardest matchup's iv ever done in my life.
It's easily Pulp Fiction. You can't top Tarantino's best film.
Pulp Fiction by a Gimp!!
Shawshank for me.
One of the toughest decisions on this site, Pulp Fiction was a revolution in film making and is a better film in certain areas but overall is still not the masterpiece that is The Shawshank Redemption.
Pulp Fiction hands down.
I wasn't too impressed with Pulp Fiction. Shawshank it is.
Pulp fiction wins this. Shawshank is great, but overrated.
The two ultimate kings of 1994. Tough but Pulp Fiction!
Pulp Fiction by quite a long shot. Not to say that I don't like Shawshank but Pulp Fiction is miles above it for me.
Pulp Fiction for the win !
Shawshank is overrated.
I'm going with Shawshank, but it's close
This is terribly close.
So close. I mean, SO close. I choose Shawshank.
Welcome to Shawshank.

The kings of 1994 but Pulp Fiction takes the cake and the royale with cheese!

Pulp Fiction is my favorite 90's film!
on May 1
Shawshank for the win. Such an incredible movie from start to finish. One of a very few movies that can be called "flawless".
Both are great but one is truly amazing... and the winner is PULP FICTION!!!!!

PF is no doubt a great movie, maybe the better one but TSR appeals to me a lot more

Both very different movies that both came out the same year and both failed to get Best Picture at the Oscars (which went to Forrest Gump, so I'm not complaining) and both are now regarded as two of the best films of all time.
The Shawshank Redemption was a spectacular film with amazing acting, music, cinematography (I mean WOW), script and a loveable story. It is one of my favourite films and is up-there for most people.
Pulp Fiction created its own genre but doesn't have that much that stands out apart from the acting from the all-star cast and Tarantino's script. Pulp Fiction seemed a bit pointless at times whereas Shawshank was very moving.
Shawshank wins here
Shawshank hould up marvelously after repeated viewings. Pulp Fiction got boring the second time I saw it.
