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.

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…
The first time I watched this movie, I watched it, I let it sink in for a few minutes, and then I immediately put it back in to watch it all over again. I was 14 years old. This film is one of the biggest influences on almost all modern filmmakers. It's pure genius.
One of the best films ever made and a strong contender for my favorite film of all time.
Q is a visionary! His screenplay is a f*cking masterpiece, his work is marvellous! "Pulp Fiction" is the perfect product of madness, humour and violence. A few Gangsters, drugs, lots of blood, lawlessness, a femme fetale, a boxer, killer dialogues and awesome music make up one true gem of Pop Culture.
I love this film for so many reasons... First of all I always get inspired after watching this. It boosts my imagination, it's magical! Secondly I just can't stop using quotes from it. It's inevitable in my everyday life. Thirdly, every single character is so good! Travolta, Jackson and Thurman are…
It's Pulp Fiction. Just go watch it.
The extremely influential and entertaining Pulp Fiction is both funny and bizarre; it's a movie about blood, guts, violence, fetishistic sex, drugs, fixed fights, dead body disposal, a mysterious glowing briefcase, leather freaks, miracles and a timepiece that makes a dark journey down through the generations. The plot and dialogue are more inventive and original than you will find in any movie; John Travolta's career is resurrected and Samuel L. Jackson is put on the map. They are both are spectacular; as is the remaining ensemble cast of Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Christoper Walken, Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel. Tarantino's directorial excursion through these lurid images and fascinating characters is riveting from start to finish.
Pulp Fiction is the greatest movie of all time! There I said it. After watching it for a 4th time last night, that statement remains true. Everything about it is simply brilliant. The characters, the score, the hilarious dialogue, everything works. Pulp Fiction is the very definition of a true masterpiece!
This is simply an entertainment fest. Skilled direction and with Samuel L. Jackson at his very best, this one's one helluva ride through guns, drugs and more guns. The non-linear narrative and brilliant dialogues spice up the otherwise not-that-great storyline, but all-in-all this one's a highly recommended watch for anyone looking to spend some time having hardcore film-entertainment.
P.S.- The soundtrack is quite impressive too.
Moments of clarity.
Not my kind of film but worth watching at least once. Does it matter what the Maguffin in the briefcase is? Nope, and the film works better for it.
