It's tough to pick between the two, but Dickson's picks resemble my own weekend UHF experiences as a kid. So Dickson.
FRANKENSTEIN is one of my favorite movies ever, but I like Dickson's overall list more. My vote goes to Dickson.
I've unfortunately never seen a couple of films on simbob's list, so it's hard to make a true 'apples to apples' comparison in terms of quality. He has some undeniable classics, however.
Richard's list is excellent and is similar to my own tastes.

Vote: Richard, with the caveat that I'll seek out those films on simbob's list that I have not seen.
Richard. Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies of all time. Definitely in my top ten.

I think they're all freely available on YouTube besides Queen Christina.

Awesome, thanks!
Richard. Can't vote against the Marx Bros.
