    I love Fight Club, but this is an easy choice for me.

    I will never forget being in the movie theater for Jurassic Park and looking up at that massive T-Rex. There's some stuff that just gets burned into your mind.

    I voted for FC but I had the same experience - “holy shit this is exactly what it would look like if we had dinosaurs.” I suppose now those effects are old hat, but I was blown away.

    I think the practical effects in Jurassic Park hold up incredibly, incredibly well. Especially compared to the lackluster CGI in Jurassic World.

    This is a tad surprising to me. I didn't think Fight Club had as large of a dedicated fan base.

    A lot closer than I expected if I'm being honest.
