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.
It’s all about the dialogue! This is the most quotable film ever for me and my absolute favorite from Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction perfectly works as a mix of different genres and you can totally feel the director’s love for cinema with so many film references that just mesh very well altogether. The writing is truly brilliant as the characters are all given a lot of care and are quite memorable whether they have big or small roles. Also, this film is really original in the sense that it manages to alternate all the different story arcs in an engaging manner, being constantly surprising and making the viewer relate to the characters to some degree. I can usually pick a…
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…
Winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes & Best Screenplay at Oscars, Pulp Fiction was a force to be reckoned with at its time of release for it opened many realms that were previously thought to be non-existent and in the long run, didn't just influence cinema but other mediums as well. Everything about it was different from the norm and it still remains one of the most original & groundbreaking films to ever grace the silver screen.
Pulp Fiction intertwines three different storylines into one and is told in a nonlinear fashion. The first follows two hit men who are out to retrieve a mysterious suitcase which belongs to their boss. The second is about one of those two hit…
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…

So good on every level. Transformative film.
Review to come.
"Well ... it's different, innit?" -- Modesty Blaise
In a world so utterly foreign to my own, here I find Vince Vega reading my favorite author. Who woulda thunk? Not me. But there he is, just as immersed in Peter O'Donnell's writing, as I can be. So much so, and much to his detriment, he forgets everything else around him while he gets lost in the continuing escapades of Miss Blaise and her right hand man, Garvin. Since I don't live in Vega's world and prefer to read in bed, or on the couch, the extent of my detriment for getting so caught up in O'Donnell's creations, is serious lack of sleep. So how did Vega's and my worlds collide…
This movie made me strangely fall in love with things i would normally despise.
tim roth's story is the 5 stars, the rest is 3
"Oh man I shot Marvin in the face!"
"Why the fuck did you do that?!"
"I didn't mean to do it, it was an accident!"
Pulp Fiction is, in my opinion, one of the best films of all time, and it is certainly one of my favourites (if you couldn't tell with it being in my top 4 on here). This is the movie that made me so obsessed with movies.
I Love Quentin Tarantino.
Eminently watchable with fantastically imaginative micro narratives. Just lacking the heart to make it a personal favourite of mine.
Had forgotten how good this is - weaving story lines together across the series of (admittedly violent) short threads.
I want you all to vote on what you think are the greatest films of all time!
This is going…
