Easily Pulp Fiction. However if this was between Casino or Pulp Fiction that would be a tougher question for me.

Pulp Fiction. I actually didn't care much for Goodfellas at all.

I've never seen Pulp Fiction, but Goodfellas is one of my 10 all-time favorite movies, so I seriously doubt that I'd like Pulp Fiction anywhere near as much as Goodfellas.

(Plus I'm not real big on Reservoir Dogs, so I've got my doubts about Pulp Fiction based on both that and Tarantino's reputation as a filmmaker.)

In my personal opinion "Reservoir Dogs" is better than Pulp Fiction, although I think both are pretty mediocre.

Both are great and two of the best movies ever made but when it comes to replay I can watch Goodfellas over and over where Pulp Fiction not so much.

Pulp Fiction. Don't get me wrong, I love Goodfellas a lot, but the second half of that film loses some of it's steam and isn't quite as exciting as the first half. Pulp Fiction is a motherfucker of a ride all throughout.

Goodfellas easily.

I think the last time I saw Pulp Fiction was late 90's. I have no desire to see it again either as it just doesn't hold up. Goodfellas on the other hand is still amazingly entertaining and just a fun movie to watch.

Tough, very tough decision. Both are two of my most re-watcheable movies in my collection.
Slight, ever so slight edge to Goodfellas based on the fact that after watching for the first time, I was blown away by the movie. Pulp Fiction took the second time to become great for me.

All of the movies that have ripped off Goodfellas, like Blow, are actually better than Goodfellas.

Pulp Fiction is a tremendously audacious, entertaining film. Goodfellas, other than the first two Godfathers, is the finest film about organized crime ever made.

Are you shittin' me? The montage of Henry's final day as a "goodfella" is imo the most exciting sequence in the entire film and possibly the most influential as well. The music, the cutting, the insane camerawork, the sense of coked-out paranoia that Scorsese is able to convey in Henry. It's ten minutes long and works like no other scene in the film, almost like it's its own little short.
