The 2011 Pop Culture Historian Movie Award

As will be the case, there is a Readers’ Choice Award (where you voted) and the Editor’s Choice Award (my pick mwuhaha!).

This year, the Readers’ Choice Movie Award goes to:

Rob Roy (1995)

With a turnout of 31 voters, Rob Roy took home 8, with Reservoir Dogs and Rise of the Planet of the Apes tying for second at 5 apiece.

To reiterate, the best scene from Rob Roy:

At the same time, the Editor’s Choice Award goes to:

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Reservoir Dogs, in my opinion, was a perfect demonstration of a writer/director (in this case, Quentin Tarantino) using his inherent talent to make up for whatever he lacks in budget. Harvey Keitel, impressed by Tarantino’s screenplay, helped fund the movie that almost wasn’t, and that was what launched Tarantino to stardom. Tarantino went on to direct other great movies like Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds.

And now, a great scene from Reservoir Dogs. I should warn: Don’t watch if you’re easily offended in ANY way. Reservoir Dogs is a movie filled with language that can be deemed offensive, including “f*ck” approximately every 20 seconds and racist and sexist banter aplenty.
