Unbelievable monologues, flawless character development, a fantastic tribute to cinema of all branches with references that only true masters of cinema can spot, an unconventional and absorbing screenplay structure that creates the feeling of a roller-coaster, fucking hilarious dialogues, a blast of a soundtrack, 150 minutes of talent that fly away in like 30 minutes, a multi-star Hollywood cast receiving their best roles. All of this was needed to surpass such a good movie like Reservoir Dogs... The ironic thing is, this would inspire several moviemakers as well, so this represents a pulp culture landmark. Favorite movie reference: Jean Luc Godard's even better Bande ŗ Part (1964). 96/100

Pulp Fiction is what hailed to the film community that Quentin Tarantino had arrived as a visual auteur. The film is a complete original - from the unusual and eccentric characters, to the witty and razor-sharp dialogue, to the topsy-turvy plot, which shifts backwards and forwards in time. The film is a crime film that cares more about its characters than about its McGuffin of a plot and it's exciting, funny, and energetic from start to finish.

When people ask me what my favorite film is, I always answer Pulp Fiction. Because there has never been a doubt in my mind that my favorite motion picture of all time is Pulp Fiction. The part where I rather hesitate is where they ask me why it's my favorite.
To me, no film is perfect. But if there is a film that comes pretty damn close to perfect, it's Pulp Fiction. It's in part quality and in part nostalgia and personal relation that make me love this film, to put it briefly.
This movie just contains every single aspect of filmmaking that I want to see in a film. It's like a movie made for me, because every single scene, every single shot, even every single line of dialogue is a masterpiece in my mind.
Quentin Tarantino's signature style comes complete with the expressive tools of …

Everyone likes Pulp Fiction, and I resisted for the longest time. I had seen Kill Bill, I had seen Death Proof and I thought they were both kind of lame, how good could this other Quentin Tarantino flick be? I kind of thought of it as a gangster version of Forest Gump, a movie that everyone loves despite the fact that it is actually kind of dumb. At least thatís what I thought of it before I watched it.
Pulp Fiction is one of the few modern movies that I think deserves every bit of critical acclaim and IMDB top 250ing that it has gotten. It is incredibly awesome. I know a lot of people go to Fight Club for their manly art-house fix, but Iíve always preferred Pulp Fiction.
I am actually kind of in awe of this movie and how beyond typical analysis it actually is. Tarantinoís …

One of the most famous movies of the 1990's, Pulp Fiction is a graphic, crowd-pleasing, shocking and awesome crime drama that tells three short-stories which focus on a certain character and ends with that character reaching the moral high point of his life. But itís the dialogue that really clinches it for me - sharp, snappy, humorous and delivered at a break neck speed. The verbal sparring is every bit as exciting and violent as the blood and bullets and little bits and pieces of brain.
Each character has their own classic scene and the first one involves John Travolta as Vincent Vega and Uma Thurman as the drug-addict Mia Wallace, the gangster boss's wife and ends with him saving her life, delivering her home safely before walking away (rather than sleeping with her).
