I think bailey's first 3 choices are 3 of the best movies of the decade, so I'm going to go with bailey.
These are all strong, but Ratty's got two of the titans of the decade plus solid picks all the way through.

VOTE: Ratty
Ratty and bailey have several personal favorites of mine on their lists. Eviltwin has several films on his list that I've unfortunately never seen, so I don't feel that I can adequately judge his list compared to the others. My apologies, eviltwin, but I must go with one of the others.

Ratty has ROBIN HOOD and BRINGING UP BABY. Bailey has DUCK SOUP and STAGECOACH. The rest of their lists are impeccable as well. I have to choose one, though.

Vote: Ratty, for the simple fact that BRINGING UP BABY is a film that I wish I could have gotten for my own personal list of screwball comedies.
Bringing Up Baby is such a charming romantic comedy and Freaks is a horror classic. Ratty gets my vote.
I was bouncing back and forth between Ratty and eviltwin, but I'm going with eviltwin. Twin has three I was think of...one of which I actually picked and then had to go back and change after looking in the bonus thread.
Ratty. Duck Soup is an all-time classic, but Ratty is hitting from all angles.
