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.

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…
Fucking perfect from beginning to end. Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction is more than just a film, but a bona-fide landmark in cinematic history. The delirious, introspective, funny, and captivating set of characters are unhinged from any sense of convention, moving through the landscape of Tarantino's sunny little universe with wicked brutality and gorgeous fluidity. Every needle drop of groovy tunes, quick pan of the camera, and quick scrambling of the kaleidoscopic narrative all comes together in a masterpiece of profound audaciousness and sun-soaked perversity. The passion and the vibrant beauty radiates from the screen like the golden glow from Marsellus' briefcase.
Tarantino's ultimate achievement and one that will continue to age like a fine wine.
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.
nice except temps
yeah, but it's getting cooler
well then that is nice

more confusing if that is possible

i mean, why bother?
i love it.
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?
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…

My then one word review: "Weird."
What a ride. One of those films where you can never tell what the hell is going to happen - who is going to live or die? It's this unpredictability and originality that make each and every scene come alive with that dialogue so well written by Tarantino. It's a fun ensemble crime caper that takes plenty of dark turns, a lot of which are so comical you can't help but laugh at. Willis, Travolta, Jackson Rhames, Roth and Thurman are all amazing. Stoltz and Walken are also amusing in their moments. This film is so crazy it will never age. An instant cult classic that will always be revisited.
A chaotic cult classic, redefining 90’s cinema…
Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 cult classic paved the way for an entire generation of crime/action movies, abolishing the typical layout of car chase climaxes and seemingly superhuman heroes rampant since the 1970’s, instead promoting a suspenseful, gritty atmosphere, laced with fantastic witty humour.
‘Pulp Fiction’ cleverly intertwines the lives of two ruthless hitmen, an aging boxer, a gangster’s wife and a diner bandit duo, following a chaotic path towards a series of misfortunate events. It really feels as though this fine piece of cinema is Tarantino’s labour of love, concentrating his array of twisted ideas, great sense of humour and his chilling ability to establish an atmosphere into one epic production. Following on from…
Quentin Tarantino continues to progress as a filmmaker with this sprawling, taut and legendary film that features some of the most iconic characters, scenes and dialogue in recent movie memory. Everything else that I can say has already been said. If you haven't seen it, you're missing out on something special!
It would be really awkward watching this with my grandmother.
GM: "WHAT DID HE SAY?"
Me: "Um... He... um, said... "Bring.... out.... the gimp."
Full of great performances and characters as well as a great story, Pulp Fiction is one of the most entertaining films of all time. Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman both bring their A game and give the film's best performances. Quentin Tarantino makes a cool cameo and nails it behind the camera. The only complaint I have is Bruce Willis has too much screen time. Some of the times it was kind of dull with his character.
I can see why this is loved by many (especially men); it's pretty entertaining, witty and has good acting. However, I don't think Tarantino movies are for me because I was looking away when someone was getting shot or stabbed. Yeah gore and violence really isn't for me.
Also I could just feel Tarantino's superiority complex, self obsession and trying too hard to be cool reeking out of the film, which was a huge turn off.
Pulp Fiction is quite literally the definition of a modern classic. Director Quentin Tarantino has pushed the boundaries of film with his violent and colorful take on crime life in Los Angeles. This movie hits the ground running with the first scene showcasing two of the many unique characters that will be encountered throughout the course of the film, who just so happened to be Tarantino’s version of Bonny and Clyde. These two characters are casually discussing places to rob and ultimately decide to rob the diner they are in. After the heist begins the screen goes black and switches to the next story. This film is very unique due two its fictional anthology aspect that has become…

Quentin Tarantino is known for directing very successful action packed movies that contain too much brutality, inappropriate language, and/or sexual nudity. His well-known movies are Reservoir Dogs, Kill BillVol.1-2, and his most iconic, Pulp Fiction. Pulp Fiction was released on October 14, 1994 was a huge box office success which earned about two hundred and thirteen million dollars. Critics and audience members widely favored and praised the film. New York Times movie critic, Janet Maslin, writes that the movie is “a work of such depth, wit and blazing originality that it places him in the front ranks of American film makers.” She later comments the film being “a triumphant, cleverly disorienting journey through a demimonde that springs entirely from Mr.…
