Pulp Fiction Movie Review

     Pulp Fiction is a film that is difficult to explain and impossible to forget.  It tells the tales of two hit men, the mob boss they work for, his wife, an aging boxer, and two petty criminals, and intertwines them all beautifully together.  The writing, and direction from Quentin Tarantino is masterful, and timeless.  This 1994 film still feels fresh and groundbreaking to this day.  No matter how many times I've seen this film, which is many, it always pulls me in, and feels fresh.  I highly recommend this movie.

  1. I've never seen the movie. Though I have seen the dance scene and I loved that part. LOL

  2. There are so many memorable and separate moments, it's difficult to imagine how anyone else could possibly have made this one besides Quentin Tarantino.

  5. Believe it or not, I haven't seen this! I've heard it is a must-watch film, though, so I've got to put it on my list.

  6. Intensely disliked this film when I first saw it in the theater. So I went back and watched it again and liked it better. Have seen it several times since and it's one of my favorite films. It was a revolutionary approach to story telling.

    By the way if you are a big fan of this film you might want to check out the 1950's film Kiss Me Deadly if you haven't seen it already. This is the film that inspired Pulp Fiction and I think it's a great film as well.

    1. I love that scene. My girlfriend's a vegetarian, which pretty much makes me a vegetarian, but I sure do love the taste of a good burger.

    1. I'm not sure if they made a book version of the film. The title is a reference to those types of novels.

  13. Hi Shawn,
    When I first saw that movie, I didn't know whether to laugh or leave! It was so unique at that time...now I'm a definite fan. :) Inglorious Bastards is my favorite Tarantino movie though...

    1. Me too! Isn't that funny when you own a movie, and yet watch it with commercials anyway instead of just popping in your copy.

  16. I saw this film in 1994 with the then young John Travolta. It was 'OutThere' then and still is today. The same goes for Q Tarantino. This may have been his best film.
