Pulp FictionDirector: Quentin Tarantino, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman
Outrageously violent, time-twisting, and in love with language, Pulp Fiction was widely considered the most influential American movie of the 1990s. Director and co-screenwriter Quentin Tarantino synthesized such seemingly disparate traditions as the syncopated language of David Mamet; the serious violence of American gangster movies, crime movies, and films noirs mixed up with the wacky violence of cartoons, video games, and Japanese animation; and the fragmented story-telling structures of such experimental classics as Citizen Kane, Rashomon, and La jetée. The Oscar-winning script by Tarantino and Roger Avary intertwines three stories, featuring Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta, in the role that single-handedly reignited his career, as hit men who have philosophical interchanges on such topics as the French names for American fast food products; Bruce Willis as a boxer out of a 1940s B-movie; and such other stalwarts as Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman, whose dance sequence with Travolta proved an instant classic.

Hadn't seen this one. Heard a lot about it. Finally saw it and it has its moments.
Best movie ever made!
Any self-respecting film buff MUST own this movie. And all the extras in this edition are great. Watch over and over.....
pulp fiction is the greatest dialogue driven film ever, and one of my all time favourites(and i've seen alot).if you don't mind tons of f-words,crude humour,sexual refrences,language, and drug use...then you must have a really healthy stomach.but even with that, you have to enjoy tarantino's refrences to pop culture, and if you don't, sorry for misleading you into watching it
its one of a kind.
This movie ruled with great directing,great acting,great dialog,great plot. There is nothing wrong with this movie well not the part where Ving Rhames gets raped by Peter Greene now that wasnt right but what bruce willis did do to them they deserved. That was great how Travolta shot that one Marvin in the face and Travolta and Jackson had to go to Tarantinos house and the clothes they had to dress up in. The music was great in it. My Faveriot character has to be the Wolf Harvey Keitel did such a great job doing that part he should of won an oscar. Tarantino is the Best!!!!!
Pulp Fiction delivers the best a movie has to offer with an exciting screen play and great performances. Anybody can enjoy this movie.
This Is probably the best gangster/mafia/murder/comedy movie I have ever seen. I laughed until I was weezing,Samuel Jackson Just delivers such a hilarious part, adn John Travolta did a awesome job of being a funny sidekick to Sam. Watch the movie!!! Royal With Cheese Baby, Royal With Cheese.
I give it 5 stars, I love this movie. But there are many more people who don't like it, and as a matter of fact turn it off after seeing 30 min. This movie contains a lot of images of drugs, and they are very explicit about it.
Yes, I liked it. It's a cool movie. Unconventional and imaginative. I look forward to another one like this.
This is one of those films you have to shut up and sit through. It's not your "Code Name: The Cleaner." The film is brilliant, and for anyone to diss it is a great insult to Quentin Tarantino. The plot twists and the acting is top knotch! He has produced some of the best films i've ever seen. Sure they might be "extreme," but they're dark, Funny and Dangerous. I've never missed one of his films, and enjoy every second of them. Although this isn't my favorite Tarantino feature, i can't say i didn't like it. Classic Tarantino.
This is a great film that all who enjoy violent comedies should see. It is one of the better films that I have seen, and has an AMAZING cast. This movie is one of the few that can make me laugh at violence. It made me laugh after a guy was shot in the face, and if you think that makes me seem sick and twisted, you obviously haven't seen it.
