Poll: Your Favorite Redford and Newman Movie

With last year's re-release of The Sting and the upcoming re-release of Butch Cassidy, I was wondering... Which is your favorite Redford/Newman movie... The Sting or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?

I loved them both, but since The Sting is one of my all-time favs I had to go with that one.

I voted for Butch Cassidy, I like The Sting but thanks to several decades of heist films it hasn't aged terribly well. Not really the films fault, I guess, but it just seems to end with a fizzle rather than the bang I was expecting.

I recently watched the Sting for the first time since I saw it in the theater on original release date. Still good but I still like Butch more.

Count me as a vote for The Sting (although they're both great). No heist or con film has even come close. The superb cast from top to bottom, the inspired anachronistic ragtime score, the great cinematography, not to mention one of the best endings ever make this one of my favorites. I wish more movies were even half as much fun as this one is.

Both great, but gave the edge to Butch.

I still love The Sting, although the ending is a little watered down due to every heist film having a surprise twist or double-cross. BCatSK is a good film too, but I prefer The Sting.
