OK, so IMHO Forrest Gump blows chunks.

An overly sentimental piece of happy-pappy crap that was Razzie worthy.

So who shoulda won?

There's three worthy contenders (Shawshank, PF and Quiz Show). But that's what I think.

It's up to you now komrades.

Pulp Fiction probably the most important film of the decade and certainly one of the best.

Forrest Gump is one of the most terrible pieces of cinema I've had to sit through. The following year's winner is another one. Blacrk!
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

Someone vote for something else!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pulp Fiction wasn't that good that seven people have voted and only PF has got the votes!

Depending on the headache in the morning, my vote's going in for Quiz Show.

Sorry you asked now, Camp? ;) None of those others stand out as much as PF. It was a criminal loss that year.

there's no way it's anything BUT pulp fiction from this list. there were better films made that year though, but nothing like pulp fiction in terms of its mass influence and appeal

Hands down Pulp Fiction. I was in high school when Pulp Fiction came out and it changed my tastes in films. I started seeking out independent films and black comedies after seeing it. I remember getting in arguments with friends and family about how Pulp Fiction was way better than Forest Gump. One negative thing about Pulp Fiction is the countless bad movies that tried to copy the non-linear story and quirky dialogue.

Mr Brian, I do not think that is a negative on Pulp. It is a negative on the sub-par imitators.
I do not blame Kurt Cobain for Puddle of Mud.

On a board like this, not too many movies would have a prayer against Pulp Fiction. That said, Quiz Show was my favorite movie of 94.

True, innovators are always going to inspire imitators that are going to fail miserably, while executives try to cash in on the next big fad. It is not Pulp's fault, I stand corrected.

Shawshank Redemption wasn't that good.

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

Pulp Fiction's the only one of those that should've been nominated at all. Hoop Dreams, Heavenly Creatures, and The Last Seduction deserved noms, and Bottle Rocket should've walked with the Oscar.

I love the hollywoodness of both Shawshank and Gump. They are like eating sugar and saccharine at the same time, which is something I apparently enjoy eating.

I like Pulp Fiction the most out of all of these by a mile, but I have a distain for it not unlike the way I feel about the earlier work of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their sound was interesting and a lot of wasn't seen before in the mainstream, but the ensuing sound that it influenced almost completely wipes out its original value. The crap that has been made in Pulp Fiction's wake really sours my attitude towards it.

Just looked over a list of 1994 films to see what else should have been nominated over crap like Four Weddings. Man, what a year for movies. One of the best in my lifetime.
