A list of Edgar Wright's favorite 1000 Movies per his list on Mubi on July 27th, 2016.
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 may contain 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…
Fucking perfect from beginning to end. Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction is more than just a film, but a bona-fide landmark in cinematic history. The delirious, introspective, funny, and captivating set of characters are unhinged from any sense of convention, moving through the landscape of Tarantino's sunny little universe with wicked brutality and gorgeous fluidity. Every needle drop of groovy tunes, quick pan of the camera, and quick scrambling of the kaleidoscopic narrative all comes together in a masterpiece of profound audaciousness and sun-soaked perversity. The passion and the vibrant beauty radiates from the screen like the golden glow from Marsellus' briefcase.
Tarantino's ultimate achievement and one that will continue to age like a fine wine.
bad storms here

"let's show graphic porn on network tv and just blur the bad parts!"
is what will happen next
well at least we…
It’s all about the dialogue! This is the most quotable film ever for me and my absolute favorite from Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction perfectly works as a mix of different genres and you can totally feel the director’s love for cinema with so many film references that just mesh very well altogether. The writing is truly brilliant as the characters are all given a lot of care and are quite memorable whether they have big or small roles. Also, this film is really original in the sense that it manages to alternate all the different story arcs in an engaging manner, being constantly surprising and making the viewer relate to the characters to some degree. I can usually pick a…
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…
Winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes & Best Screenplay at Oscars, Pulp Fiction was a force to be reckoned with at its time of release for it opened many realms that were previously thought to be non-existent and in the long run, didn't just influence cinema but other mediums as well. Everything about it was different from the norm and it still remains one of the most original & groundbreaking films to ever grace the silver screen.
Pulp Fiction intertwines three different storylines into one and is told in a nonlinear fashion. The first follows two hit men who are out to retrieve a mysterious suitcase which belongs to their boss. The second is about one of those two hit…
I prefer my fiction with little to no pulp. Harvey Keital was alright
Quentin Tarantino proved that he wasn't an amateur with his 1994 Oscar-Winning Film 'Pulp Fiction'. Tarantino started as a movie geek, and worked at a video store. He made his 1992 independent debut film 'Reservoir Dogs'. 2 Years later, he wrote a script in Amsterdam. He made it into film. 'Pulp Fiction' is about interlocking storylines of fast-talking humorous criminals. The first story is about Burger-loving hitman Vincent Vega (John Travolta), and Philosophical hitman Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are humorous guys who usually go off-topic. They are on a "mission" to retrieve a mysterious briefcase who was stolen from their boss, Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames). The second story is about Vincent Vega is that he was asked by Marsellus…
C'è la sesta stella?
Gut gealtert. Soundtrack immer noch fantastisch. Die 5 Sterne sind aber mehr so aus Retro-Aspekten. Was mir beim Schauen jetzt abgeht, ist echte/s Leidenschaft/Mitgefühl. Diese Welt ist doch sehr fern. Muss am eigenen Alter liegen.
Trotzdem große Freude an ein paar Highlights: Christopher Walkens Vortrag über die Uhr. Jack Rabbit Slim's Twist Contest. Die Episode im Keller der Perversen. "Zed's dead". The Wolf.
Einiges aber auch nicht mehr so toll: Ezekiel 25-17. Das Ende der Diner-Szene.
