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.
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…
Without any blemishes or imperfections; perfect.
Without any mistakes or shortcomings.

Pulp Fiction. Perhaps the most influential film made in the last 25 years. Some films are just films. They may be good ones, but they are just films. Pulp Fiction belongs to the group of movies which become something more than a mere motion picture. They shape the language of cinema. They inspire other film makers, they become fan favorites and they change cinema so that nothing will be the same after them. They become milestones and deservedly they will shine eternally in the cinema’s Hall of Fame. And Tarantino’s second film is one of these “chef-d'oeuvres”. It accomplishes…
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?
"Now whether or not what we experienced was an according-to-Hoyle miracle is insignificant. But what is significant is I felt the touch of God. God got involved." - Jules Winnfield
Jules is always one for hyperbole. And so am I. To say that I 'felt the touch of God' when I watch Pulp Fiction is a hyperbole. What I did feel though, is the presence of one of the greatest works of cinematic entertainment ever created. A rich tapestry of indulgence, hilarity and criminal activity, it's a smorgasbord of everything that makes the movies worth seeing in general.
There are very few things that aren't covered here. There's sparkling romance and chemistry, there's shocking twists and turns, there's an abundance…
All I can say about this film is that no matter how many times I watch it I never get bored of the great story, hilariously badass characters and intelligent dialogue.
Pretty good movie.
its one of those movies that feels great when youre a teenager, then you grow up and realize that even though its pretty good, a lot of its magic relies on having grown up with it
Pulp Fiction is one of the best movies ever made! It has excellent acting and directing. It has some funny parts, which were hillarious!

Film #3 of 30 Amazing Movies
1994 gave us some amazing movies including Forrest Gump and The Shawshank Redemtpion, which are both in my Top 20, but none were better than Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. Pulp Fiction is one of the most loveable films of all time. It has a great set of quirky characters with human qualities, some very awesome and iconic scenes, and some of the most quotable dialogue of all time. This film is a true sight to behold. I'm a huge Tarantino fan, and me calling this his best film is really something special.
The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster's wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales…
Yes this is the first time I've watched Pulp Fiction.
Yes this is my first Tarantino movie.
Yes the dialogue is electric.
Yes I appreciated the post modern flare of it.
Yes Samuel LMF Jackson is absolutely brilliant.
Yes John Travolta knows a lot about massages, and is also great in this film.
Yes Bruce Willis is Bruce Willis and it is great.
Yes Uma Thurman reminds me of Anna Karina, and I like that.
Yes it's a great film.
Yes I'm hungry for a cheeseburger.
Yes I drive a Chevy Malibu.
And yes if anybody key's it...
They should be fucking killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution.
What more is there to say? A true achievement in style, a perfect homage to classic pulp in a 90's setting, and one of my favorite movies of all time.
I great film by Tarantino. Although, the first 15-20 minutes did not latch me, the rest of the film delivers. A film that has been, and will continue to be, remembered in the years to come.
