Pulp Fiction – The Coolest Movie Ever?

Jules and Vincent work as hitmen for crime boss Marcellus Wallace. Wallace is currently dealing with Butch Collidge, a boxer who failed to throw a fight after taking Wallace’s money and is now planning to flee the city, but can’t leave his father’s watch behind. Vincent faces some problems of his own when Wallace asks him to show his wife Mia a good time while he’s away. Some of these people redeem themselves and some don’t, and all meet an end appropriate to their choices.

I just wrote a 4 page post about this fucking movie, then it disappeared, how much does that suck. Let me try and regain my momentum

Anyway after watching The Usual Suspects[/url], I was prompted to watch some other old favourites, Pulp Fiction[/url] being the next in line.

This is a classic movie, cult status, pretty much everyone has seen it, those who haven’t wish they had seen it. It stands at a mighty number 11 in the top 250 movies.

It’s one of the first DVD’s I bought, the oldskool silver kind with no special features, no fancy add-ons, no flashy packaging. This is truly oldskool, 11 year ago this film was born.

Tarantino is some kind of weird genius, he’s a nerd, a movie nerd, he’s admitted to watching like 16 hour of movies a day, almost every day, he’s has a movie library large enough to keep him occupied, which is saying something. He appreciates such a wide variety of movies, that’s what makes his films so special, and undeniable ‘cool‘. He borrows from, evolves and adapts some old styles from classics like Shichinin no samurai[/url] and infuses with the funk filled soundtracks, reviving old classics like Son of a Preacher along the way.

He makes movies he thinks are cool and he would like to watch, and well the man has good taste. I think most, if not all, of his movies are in the top 250.

This movie has electric dialogue and flawless acting, it put Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta back on the map. It put Samuel in my book as the coolest guy on the Earth, and that’s saying something. Even Bruce Willis puts in a great performance, it’s an allstar cast.

The film is hilarious in parts, intruiging, engaging, interesting, shocking…it’s a fairly long movie but it passes in a flash and it’s SO damn quotable, one of the most quoted and sampled movies ever (Cypress Hill?)..

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides with 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 darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon those with great vengeance and with furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know that my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee

I own the soundtrack too and it’s one of the few soundtracks I regularly enjoy (along with Blade OST).

So many people mimic this film aswell without even knowing it, those funky dance moves you pull in Beach Club on Saturday night? Yeah those are from Pulp Fiction.

If you haven’t seen this, you totally have to, no questions.

9.5/10 – Does it get any better than this?

    I LOVE Quentin T’s movies… even the latest Sin City stylo reeks heavily of HIS STYLE… wait, he WAS a guest director for Sin City right?

    PULP FICTION is a classic.

    Bro you need to give Pulp Fiction a big round 10.

    For me, the re-sequenced flow of the movie is the clincher for the xtra 0.5 mark. It even managed to confuse a few so-called “movie reviewers” who couldn’t figure out the sequence of the four chapters.

    If I remember correctly, the sequence was: Big Kahuna burger (ch 1), Wolfman and the thing at the diner (ch 4), Mrs. Mia Wallace (ch 2) and The Boxer (ch 3).

    Definite COOL.

    I nearly died watching the first CD of Shichinin no samurai. Didn’t bother for the 2nd. Shit was bad, i thought.

    Took some courage to say that, but that’s just my honest opinion. Call me a noob movie watcher then. Up yours.

    You can see the full order here:

    Chapter List

    It’s as close to a 10 as I can give…but I don’t believe in perfection.

    Dusk Till Dawn threw me though, started out as a normal gangster Tarantino flick, then OMGWTF?!?

    But it was great nevertheless.

    I didn’t rate Jackie Brown though, was zzzz

    Walt Disney would have been proud! πŸ™‚

  8. ShaolinTiger June 13, 2005 at 2:00 am #

    It was ahead of it’s time, bear in mind it’s over 50 years old.

    I prefer Babycart at the river styx (What Kill Bill was based on), Shogun Assassin or Rashomon (The original story of Jet Li – Hero).

  9. FireAngel June 13, 2005 at 3:16 am #

    Jackie Brown was like a fcking bad sleeping pill wei.

    i wanna hump bruce willis’ chick in the film. cute sial

    Oh yea I’ve been watching these classics alright. Pulp Fiction was shot way before my time so its a little less glitzy for me to enjoy it. But its nice to have a not-so-Hollywood type of movie.

    My favourite scene: Marseillus. Bruce Willis. A gun shop owner. And a gay cop.

    The “blueberry pancake” lady was a bit too bird-brained for my taste, but I wouldn’t mind blueberry pancakes though.


  13. ShaolinTiger June 13, 2005 at 4:31 am #

    She was like a little kid, she made me ROFLMAO

  16. ShaolinTiger June 13, 2005 at 9:35 am #

  18. tiger June 13, 2005 at 7:44 pm #

    Bro, the Jackie Brown movie soundtrack might be a better purchase.

  19. michaelooi June 13, 2005 at 8:36 pm #

    is this some congregation of striped wildlife animals or something ?

    thanks for the pointers, tiger(s)…

    btw, another great Tarantino movie that you guys should check out is – From Dusk Till Dawn (well, if you haven’t watched it …)

  20. Dabido (Teflon) June 14, 2005 at 1:32 am #

    Her names Fabienne (ie the character) … just in case any of you wanted the name rather than calling her ‘blue berry pancake girl’ et hoc genus omne.

    It was played by Maria De Medeiros. (Just in case anyone wanted to find other movies she’s been in).

  21. summer June 14, 2005 at 10:52 am #

    dem!! i’ve only watched it halfway thru’ and always got interrupted… and i know it’s good!! sob sob… hafta finish it this year!!

  22. vlad June 14, 2005 at 9:42 pm #

    It is only a sad thing that Tarantino will not do Vega Brothers i.e Vincent Vega (Travolta) and Vic Vega aka Mr. Blonde(Madsen).

    Never leave Reservoir Dogs out of the classic my friend.

  23. ShaolinTiger June 14, 2005 at 9:49 pm #

    Haha, don’t worry dude, Dogs is next on the list, watch this space πŸ˜€

    Vega brothers, that would be cool.

  24. CS June 15, 2005 at 8:58 pm #

    nah i think reservoir is sooooooo overrated. I love pulp fiction, and jackie brown, but r.dog, from dusk till dawn and kill bills vol.1 and 2 is just…not that good..normal, that’s the word.

    My fav scene in pulp fiction is when vincent accidently shot marvin in the face, and then they were arguing all the way till the end of cleaning up the mess, the conversation is just hilarious.

    This is a rare motion picture that doesn’t belong to any movie genre; it has a little bit of everything. Action, drama, comedy and etc, but the main plot in this movie, was the elements to deal with pop culture…
