No comments? For two of the greatest movies ever made? I'm disappointed. Anyway, my vote goes to The Searchers. Sure, The Princess Bride is insanely clever and quotable, but The Searchers has John Wayne's best performance that I've seen so far. There are parts that don't work (the romantic subplot), but it's still a great movie.

Two films from my childhood that get better and better every time I watch them. I'm also going with the Searchers, partially because John Ford is my favorite director, but mostly because I find it utterly engrossing.

The Princess Bride wins...
