Just because you are a character doesn't mean you have character.
A burger-loving hit man, his philosophical partner, a drug-addled gangster's moll and a washed-up boxer converge in this sprawling, comedic crime caper. Their adventures unfurl in three stories that ingeniously trip back and forth in time.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The Wolf is the shepherd.
"Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the Valley of Darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children."
When Jules and Vincent need to get off the road, what does Jules say: "This is the Valley, Vincent. Marcellus ain't got no friendly places in the Valley." They were in the valley of darkness. They needed someone to help them out. "If Jimmy's ass ain't home, I don't know what we're going to do." They were hoping Jimmy would be their brother's keeper. Of course, what was the first thing Jimmy told them: "Storing dead n$%$#*( ain't my business." If he…
From the very first words uttered you know you're watching something special. In Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino already showed signs of his unique skill at writing dialogue. In Pulp Fiction he perfects it.
When this came out in Holland, it became mostly known for two things. Firstly the fact that Travolta was playing a role he had never played before and secondly the fact that Tarantino made some great and unbelievably accurate cultural observations about Holland. Both were completely true of course, but that is not what blew me away.
This was my first Tarantino and will always be my favourite. I was completely taken by his prose. There is practically no line of text, no piece of dialogue uttered in…
bad storms here
sunny day here.

i agree which is what i said
"let's show graphic porn on network tv and just blur the bad parts!"
is what will happen next
well at least we…
This is the ultimate film homage.
I honestly can't see how anyone wouldn't like this film. Even if you don't love it, you have to like something about it. The honest dialogue, the hilarity of it all, the thrill of it all, the awesome performances, the engaging characters, the compelling and thought provoking story, that fucking briefcase...
I swear, I don't think there is a single person on the planet who uttered the phrase "I didn't like Pulp Fiction" just like how no one has ever said "I don't know what's in that fucking briefcase." We all know by now. It's pretty obvious isn't it?

Review In A Nutshell:
Here I arrive at his magnum opus, the film that played a large part in the transition of my casual relationship of cinema to a connection that is defined by enthusiasm, passion, and intellectual admiration. It was then that I realised that there was a figure behind the camera, pulling all the strings that brings its written characters to life. Quentin Tarantino was the first auteur that has pushed me into deep exploration of a singular director’s body of work, witnessing the growth of the filmmaker and how that growth has caused…
Yes, I've watched this twice in two days. In my prior review yesterday, I stated that Pulp Fiction wasn't my favorite Tarantino film.
I was wrong.
Everyone has one of those films, one that you constantly fight with. Basically, Pulp Fiction has always been mine. When I first saw it at age 13, I loved it. I really loved it. It was when I was starting to watch film seriously, but after awhile, I almost forgot about it. Recently, I've been watching a lot of Tarantino, and I remembered how I haven't seen Pulp Fiction in so long.
That brings me to my viewing yesterday, which was disappointing because I didn't remember it being as great as when I saw…
It took me a lot longer to watch this movie than it probably should have done (Fun fact: I was born in 1995, a year after this movie came out), but it's an excellent film that with one viewing became one of my Top 5 and confirmed my already held belief that Tarantino is one of the best directors of film. Jackie Brown, Django Unchained - have been excellent, unique and fascinating and Pulp Fiction is immense. So many quotable scenes (Say What? Say What Again? etc) and fantastic, natural dialogue make this film awesome. A good cast combined with a killer soundtrack and a non-linear plot, Pulp Fiction is an enthralling, captivating and epic masterpiece that is a must watch, and there's never anything quite like it.
Play with matches, you get burned.
Everything that you’ve heard is true. It’s visually stunning, technically inventive, and the writing is unique and unflinching. It’s utterly brainless, but of course it has to be. It’s brainlessness is part of its style, and this movie is all about style. The intricate story structure, the endless, inventive homage, the throwback dialogue, the tropes, it’s all part of what is essentially a stylistic exercise. So be it. The film runs on charm and energy, and it’s got heaps of both. Tarantino is an excellent writer of dialogue (if not of plot) and he’s got a real flair for casting. The performances are solid, and I never felt that any moment of the movie was not having its intended impact. It’s just that when the curtain came up I felt a little hollow about it. An interesting contrast with Jaws which had similar problems, but I was infinitely more charmed by this. (Blasphemy, I know.)
Tarantino puts on a show for aspiring screenwriters.
Tarantino is truly the master of "cool" filmmaking. Insanely quotable with a weird unravel to the story, it definitely leaves an impression on you when it's over.
I had heard a lot about this film in terms of expectations and I was not disappointed, the plot was interesting and follows a classic 'tarantino' style, I would definitely recommend it.
"Aw man, I just shot Marvin in the face." Nothing to say about this film that hasn't already been said, so I'll just add this to make myself feel smart: as told by Captain Koons (Christopher Walken), the air force gunner, Winocki, who Butch's (Bruce Willis) grandfather passed along his gold watch to for safekeeping before the Battle of Wake Island, is a reference to the 1943 film Air Force, directed by Howard Hawks (who also made Rio Bravo, one of QT's favorites). In it, John Garfield plays a gunner named Joe Winocki. His air force crew land on Wake Island hours after the Pearl Harbor bombing. The marines give them mail and a small dog (and also a small gold watch?) to get off the island before the inevitable Japanese invasion.

Very well made, memorable, funny movie with loads of charm.
