Every film from Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" essays.
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.
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.
faultless - perfect - immaculate - impeccable
A work of outstanding artistry, skill, or workmanship.
An artist's or craftsman's best piece of work.
masterwork - chef d'oeuvre - chef-d'oeuvre - magnum opus
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…
The characters and unique dialog alone makes this film very entertaining.
One of the ten greatest films ever made. That is all.
The King of Pop Culture Cinema being the most quotable film in movie history! Larger than life characters that make a Indelible impression for life!
Tarantino tantalizes us with a literal orgy of words and phrases designed to elicit a response, an emotion, an automatic que to save all that is particularly pleasurable into our memory banks so that we can savor his literary tourette's again and again!
This film never gets old. Tarantino is the master of storytelling and dialogue.
How do you even go about reviewing this film? It's Pulp Fiction: quite possibly the best film released in my lifetime. Almost every scene, every line of dialogue, every piece of music and facial expression is just perfect.
But everyone knows that... so why say more?
Ja vi muitos filmes, mas ainda não consegui encontrar um que me deixe tão extasiado quanto esse. Assisto uma vez a cada um ou dois anos e o impacto ainda é o mesmo. Ta no meu Top 5 e vai ser difícil assistir qualquer coisa que o tire desse lugar.
2nd viewing. I can hardly believe that myself -- I haven't seen this movie since it first came out on videocassette. What struck me was how much I remembered this thing. The imagery was so vivid that I could recall correctly how several scenes looked; rewatching the movie confirmed that, and I was shocked. I mean, most of the time, I can barely remember movies about a year after I've seen them. I could recall the music and, though I couldn't remember the dialog exactly, I could remember how they were delivered and their tones and cadences. To me, these are the marks of a great film -- I thought it was great when I first saw it, I never bothered to see it again for almost 20 years, and I can still remember parts of it clearly and correctly. And boy did I have a good time rewatching it.
Esse filme tem um significado especial na minha vida.
i'ma call a coupla hard, pipe-hittin' niggas, who'll go to work on the homes here with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. you hear me talkin', hillbilly boy? i ain't through with you by a damn sight. i'ma get medieval on your ass.
