About prints: not a clue..
About slides most of the photographers think Kodakchrome 64 is unbeatable but problems due to processing (in Europe only can be processed in Switzerland and that's a major big problem) makes another films to rise to the first place.
All the Kodak's 100 pro films are very good but my favorite is the Fuji Provia 100...superb film..

If you want the best print film you cannot beat Fuji Reala. It is a 100 ISO film with unmatched fineness of grain and sharpness. It also has good color when processed by a good lab. If you want slides Fuji Velvia 50 & 100 also work very well. There is also a new print film by Kodak called Ultra Color you can get it in either 100 or 400 ISO. It also has very good color and resolution. Don't fall for "Kodachrome 64 is the best" as it simply isn't true anymore. There are slide films (like those named above) that produce a finer grain photo with better color.

If you're a hardcore slide junkie, in my eyes it certainly is still true, very true. Sure, there are films out there with finer grain but nothing beats the "resale" value of a perect Kody ramp slide, period. No question about it. Of course, if you're not into "it", then I'd recommend Fuji Provia 100F or any of the others suggested above. Heck, just go digital
