    I have never had a reason to watch Dancing With Wolves, The English Patient, or Shakespeare in Love. There are three really good movies in there, but American Beauty is arguably the worst film ever made.

    This is very, very difficult. Schindler's List and The Silence of the Lambs are both such amazing films. Just in terms of re-watchability, I have to give it to Silence, though. By a hair. A strand of hair from someone with abnormally thin hair.

    The 90s had four of the most egregious losses ever, too: Dances With Wolves over Goodfellas (1990), Forrest Gump over Pulp Fiction (1994), The English Patient over Fargo (1996), Shakespeare In Love over Saving Private Ryan (1998)

    Gump over Pulp Fiction is still insane.

    Titanic.

    The final 20-30 seconds are absolutely incredible and kill me every single time. Watched it again a few months back and sobbed.

    Dances with Wolves is a tremendous movie. I can't pick it as my favorite of the decade in good conscience, but someone needed to defend it from Tetra slander.

    I was running a theater with Schindlers list... And people fainted, walked out crying, etc.... For some people, it was just too much.... I would say 'too close to home' but they had family there... so it <was> home.

    With that.... Schiindlers... just so powerful. And the girl... with the red.... (sigh) Gets me all the time.

    Slander? I have never seen the film.

    Dances With Wolves is certainly not a bad film, it just suffers historically for having robbed Scorsese and Goodfellas of what was rightfully theirs.
