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…
1994's Pulp Fiction Is My Seventh Favorite Film Of All Time.
I could spend the rest of my life listening to Wolf say, "Well, let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet."
What's not to love here?
A historic cast. A masterful director. A timeless script.
It's reputation precedes it.
This goes without saying, but if you haven't seen it yet, FUCKING WATCH IT.

Yes, I'd never seen Pulp Fiction until yesterday. Although, with the amount of times it's been referenced in pop-culture, I felt like I had. That's not to say it's bad, it's very much the opposite, and on rewatch this rating could go up to a perfect five out of five.
I'm not a huge Tarantino fan and I've not seen every one of his films but I think the others would have to be pretty damn spectacular to be better than this one. It's not a flawless film, my main complaint is the inclusion of Tarantino himself, who really needs to realise that he cannot act and his cameos just come across as dumb and self-indulgent. But these small gripes are really nothing when the film is as good as this, it's endlessly quoteable, well acted, stylish, and hugely enjoyable.
It's fantastic. Quotable as fuck. What more can I say?
This film has got brilliant lines, shocking parts and the acting is good especially Samuel L Jackson
Classic master piece.
