    If you could only watch the films of either director, which would you chose?

    I voted for Tarantino. He may be a dick, but I find his films more entertaining and re-watchable. Although, I do watch Goodfellas every year without fail.

    Why is this even a poll? Goodfellas > Pulp Fiction (IMHO, each of their best works) and the rest of Scorsese's films > the rest of Tarantino's films. Hell, Scorsese even beats Tarantino on number of quality films. I would say Scorsese has more classic movies than Tarantino has movies.

    I'm not sure I actually agree with Goodfellas > Pulp Fiction. But, Scorsese's body of work is better

    Raging Bull
    Mean Streets
    The Last Waltz
    Taxi Driver
    King of Comedy
    After Hours
    Cape Fear
    The Departed

    Those are all classics. He has about four or five more great films (The Wolf of Wall Street, Casino, Shine a Light, Last Temptation of Christ to name a few).

    I think that movie falls into the great category over the classic category. It is with movies like Last Temptation of Christ.

    Raging Bull -- Saw it once. Never had the desire to watch it again.

    Taxi Driver -- Great film, but again, I never feel the need to revisit it.

    After Hours -- I tried watching it on two occasions. Bailed out both times. I don't get it's rep.

    Cape Fear -- Saw it once. Can't touch the original.

    Goodfellas -- One of the Top 10 greatest films ever made.

    King of Comedy -- Mostly bored me.

    The Last Waltz -- Never saw it.

    The Departed -- Loved Nicholson, but those Boston accents...Oofaha! Can't stand them, so I won't watch it again.

    Mean Streets -- I saw it, but honestly don't remember a thing about it.

    New York, New York -- Sucked beyond words.

    Quentin's films are all fucking fun to watch. Haven't seen The Hateful Eight yet.

    Now, if I choose Scorsese, have I still seen the Tarantino movies? Do I retain the memories, or have I never seen them?

    Quentin Tarantino doesn't make movies, he makes parodies of movies.

    Bad question in the first place. Scorsese is light years ahead of almost any film maker... ever. His legacy is already cemented into film history. Tarantino is still building his, and while he has some work in front of him, I think he will make it. But to compare the two is unfair to Tarantino. Now if the question was Tarantino v Mann or Tarantino v Fincher or Scorsese v Hitchcock or Scorsese v Speilberg, then you have a real conversation.

    He also directed a segment in a movie called New York Stories which was really good.
