An early 1990's classic, & one of the best examples of well-done pop-culture story telling & dialog in a movie screenplay. Students having difficulty with their creative writing skills would find this a go-to source for how to create an interesting story line, simple yet powerful dialog, and plot time-sequencing. Combined with excellent acting around, if you haven't seen this one in a while, definitely worth a repeat viewing. Not overly topical. It holds up well 20 years later. A good opportunity to crank up your audio system a tad too. Recommended.

Bubba_Louie, I believe your focus on Pulp Fiction's dialogue is somewhat misguided. It doesn't matter what they put on their fries. What's important is the fact that before Pulp Fiction, you rarely saw movies where criminals, mobsters, or hitmen talked like everyone else does. These assassins are going to their job, and they're talking just like any other two working stiffs just trying to make it through their day. It may not seem like a huge revelation, but most crime movies made after 1994 owe a huge debt to Tarantino's dialogue.

An interesting mix of stories woven together which probably could have been a bit shorter since despite all the action and good dialogue it is dull at times.

OK. I'm certainly not going to bother to waste my time, or yours, here by ranting and raving away about what a frickin' over-rated (That's right! - OVER-RATED!!) bore that I, most definitely, thought that Pulp Fiction was..... All that I'll say on the matter is that I have never, ever heard more stupid and more pointless conversations going on (on a continual basis) in one film, than what I heard going on in this poor excuse for movie-entertainment. It's true..... And out of all these braindead conversations the most brilliant "factoid" brought to my attention was that in France, at their McDonalds, they actually (get this) put mayonaise on their french fries..... Gasp!!..... Oh-me! Oh-my! Those utterly uncouth Parisian parasites have no class at all!..... Need I say more?

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

The writing in this movie is absolutely incredible. It also has some of the most memorable movie scenes ever. Best Quentin Tarantino movie ever.

Quentin Tarantino's best movie - and one of my all-time favourite flicks!
This movie changed the landscape of action/adventure dramas ever made - up until then - and for that reason alone - it shall stand as a Hollywood Classic!!!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Intense OD scene, I can see how it might be scary. A lot of suspense = everything becomes way more intense

Sexual Content: A plethora of sexual/suggestive talk and conversation. Rape.

Violence: Lots of guns, and even a sword... Some nice blood and brains. Keep in mind that most of the blood and violence is very unexpected and then the aftermath is pretty drawn out.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

You ever read the Bible Brett? There's a passage I got memorized, seems appropriate for this situation: Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. 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. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."
