The characters and dialogue of Snatch kept me hooked, Lock Stock was hit or miss and wasn't consistent, I found it too serious as well.
Its a tossup on the dialogue. Both are great. Lock stock has some good dialogue and quotes (When you dance with the devil you wait for the song to stop, a minute ago this was the safest job in the world. Now it's turning into a bad day in Bosnia ) Characters i dont know, Snatch has more, and some coolones yes. I enjoyed Farina, Brick Top and Boris the Blade. I prefer the Vinny Jones from Lock stock though.

What do yo mean with too serious? Because i found the humor in Snatch soso or not even funny at all at times.

These 2 movies are almost the same, another story yes but it wasnt hard to see it was a Ritchie flick.

But, that's where I think our opinions differ. i mean, c'mon now. Snatch and "Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrels" are the exact same type of movie. In fact, nearly every Guy Ritchie film is the same type of movie as the previous one. Snatch is great, but it's great as a Guy Ritchie film only because his films are always the same thing (with the glaring exception of "Swept Away"). As much as you criticize Tarantino for taking things from other movies, I'm surprised you didn't hate "Snatch" for all that it took from other films in the genre including Guy Ritchie's previous film.
I don't follow the genre that is why it caught me, I have only seen these 2 from Ritchie and wasn't used to the dark comedic style he has (modern British dark humor to be exact), I wouldn't call Snatch one of the great british comedies but as far as this decade of remakes goes how can you not like a script and story that isn't predicted by the time the opening credits roll?

I wouldn't call them exact copies, again I felt Snatch to be more light hearted and the dialogue wasn't carved into your head as would with Tarantino, I stand by my opinion that it is one of the rare comedies that can get multiple viewings out of me this decade, take it over Apatow's cliches any day.

edit: Maybe original is the wrong word but it still is top 10 of the decade and better than Guy's previous.

The pace of Snatch was more comedy while the pace of Lock Stock was more dramatic, they were both comedy dramas just on different scales.

Casino is a carbon copy of Goodfellas but you can easily tell Goodfellas is the premium pick of the two, that is all. (yes I know they are true stories but Casino is a copy style wise.)

I do watch alot of the british dark comedies, so I was more familiar with what he was riffing off of. I really do love Snatch, but I don't think it is the best of the decade. So, we can just agree to disagree.

I never called it best of the decade. That is City of God, followed by The Pianist, Pans Labyrinth, Requiem For A Dream, Lost In Translation and so on, top 10 of the decade.

And this is unlike most dark British humor, I am also a huge fan of the genre, just not a Ritchie fan maybe it was his one gem for me.
