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.
nice except temps

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…
It has taken over 20 years, but Andy has finally seen Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. Have I been in prison? No. Have I been on a space station? No. Have I been in a coma? No. So why on Earth has it taken me so long to see what is rightly regarded as a modern classic? I'd love to come up with a plausible answer, but the truth is I don't have one. I've caught little slices of it over the years but never more than ten minutes or so and as my wife's favorite film you'd have thought she'd have pushed me to watch it, but she never did, until now.
There's no real point in me trying to review…
Of course, if you read my review for Reservoir Dogs, you know that it's my favourite of Tarantino's films. Not for nothing, but Pulp Fiction is a strong second-place for me.
Telling a film out of chronological order is pretty fucking incredible. It's such an awesome technique and it confuses you enough where you have no idea where the plot is going, even if the end of that particular plot just ended - you still have to find out how it got there.
Everyone does an incredible job with their roles, because they're funny and, in a weird way, likeable for the sort of people that they are. That is, criminals. Hella funny and entertaining completely. The only reason I deducted half a star is because I didn't completely fawn over it the way I did with Reservoir Dogs. That's not exactly a criticism of the movie, it's more when I saw it, y'know?
Defined the 90s cinema. Tarantino's best.
What does Marcellus Wallace look like?
I think I just remembered why I don't watch this very often anymore.
Don't worry, I'll spare you.
I still think it's a great movie.
I thought this movie was just nothing but pure entertainment, and great/hilarious acting from John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson. What I love about Tarantino films is that although many are grotesquely violent, which is part of their appeal, hilarity seems to be pretty consistent and a priority for these kind of movies. Also thoroughly enjoyed the plot jumps throughout the film.
Such a disgrace for me to even forgot putting this film when I have watched it for like, 10 times or more.

You know, it can not be overstated how truly remarkable Travolta, Willis, Jackson and Rhames are in this. I was rewatching this on IFC and came in when Willis is freaking out on Fabienne about forgetting the watch. The film making and writing is so unassailable. It's just a beyond lovely piece of cinematic beauty. Then the Bonnie situation segment hits and I remember why it is I often detest Tarantino. The Bonnie Situation segment in Pulp Fiction feels like they dropped a sub-par Tarantino knockoff movie into the middle of the real deal.
First of all, Tarantino is AWFUL in it. Even if he wasn't needlessly, repetitively, gratingly hammering away on the N word like the wannabe tough guy…
