Pulp Fiction

Not as good as some say but it is fine, the best way to rate it is to go part by part. The opening is very well, done in fact all the scenes of just the two Hit man are very well done, and the dialogue is just right. The first story part is good, I did like the relationship aspect of the story and the intense ending. The second part is better but one section of dialogue is almost intolerable, the type where I say I just don't care. This is the first scene between Butch and his girlfriend. It is just slow, and frankly uninteresting. But the main part of the story and the plot of it is interesting and well done. The final part is the best and the just about perfect, because although its a serious situation the film does not take it that way. So one great part two one good one, and one okay ...

Backwards

I'm basically amazed at the reviewers of this movie who were shocked by the language and violence, and for that reason hated it. What did you think you were getting with this movie? The language is integral to the movie's setting, plot and, yes, to it's morality (more on this later). The violence is at times just gratuitous, I will agree, but that's part of the draw of this film: The lack of inhibition of the violent characters here is meant to draw out the darkest of the film's humor! "Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?" Samuel L Jackson's character asks a college-age actor after arbitrarily shooting one of his friends. The idea here is that the mean-spiritedness and absolutism of Jackson's character is so over-the-top to be ridiculous, and thus, funny (at least to those who ...

Pulp Fiction

Advanced for its time. Quentin Tarantino has a knack for dialogue. There is almost no brutal action sequence here yet it never ceases to be interesting. Bruce Willis does a great job characterizing a wounded man that just wants to escape the spiral he's stuck in. Samuel L. Jackson gives one of his best performances here as a man who goes through an epiphany. But what I found more captivating is that he goes through changes in subtle ways. Uma Thurman is absolutely exquisite in this, along with John Travolta. Who can ever forget their dance scene together? I used to think that this film is overrated. But after giving it a chance for the second time, I'm glad to have finally experienced its magic. The interconnecting storylines work and the soundtrack perfectly fits this swaggering film.

Nothing Goes to Waste

Pulp Fiction is, deservedly, an American cinema classic, a prototype by which all other American films will be judged. Quentin Tarantino goes crazy in this gangster film, taking advantage of a talented cast and a sharp script to create this masterpiece. Pulp Fiction is simply the movie for people who love movies. There are plenty of film references here, as well as plenty of entertainment to go around.
Pulp Fiction weaves together three equally interesting plotlines. The first is that of Vincent and Jules (played by Travolta and Jackson, respectively), two hitmen working for Marsellus Wallace (Rhames), as they prepare for a hit on a group of young men and encounter the craziest day of their lives. Bruce Willis plays Butch, a washed up boxer on the run from Wallace after double...

Don't you just hate that... awkward silences.

When this movie came out I wasn't able to catch it in the theatre, and all I could hear from everyone was, beware of the green door, you don't want to know what happens behind the green door. Well that made no sence to me until I finally got to see the movie, and all I can say is they were right. I remember working for a chain movie rental company when this came out on VHS and Laserdisk. There were people that actually spent the $100 that was being charged to buy this movie. While I wouldn't drop a hundred bucks on any VHS movie, I knew why it was worth it to some people. The story is great, there were very few films that took the approach that Tarantino took when making this movie, and he pulled it off expertly.
This is one of those movies where you will find a great quote in just abou...

It's What Happens AROUND the Guns That Matters...

After the art house success of Reservoir Dogs, writer-director Quentin Tarantino decided to tell another story filled with guns, blood and a blatant disregard for chronology. Interweaving three (originally unrelated) stories into one LA epic, "Pulp Fiction" is a delirious -- and deadly smart -- celebration of everything that's "bad" in movies: hitmen, gambling, criminals, crooked boxers, wayward femme fatales and the worst pawn shop in the history of cinema.

Despite an entire generation of directors who would attempt (and, mostly, fail) to copy Tarantino's chic ultraviolence, the true lasting effect of "Pulp Fiction" on the public consciousness is its dialogue. Tarantino's ear for writing words that work was so impressive, most of the cast agreed to work for scale (aka Hollywood's v...
