There’s nothing new that can be said about Pulp Fiction that hasn’t already been said. I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I dare to say that this is my all time favourite film. If I had to choose only one movie to a desert island to see for the rest of my life, this would be it. I love every minute of it, from the restaurant opening scene, to the restaurant end scene. Never ever does 150 minutes go by so fast, and when the end credits come up you just want more.

It was released 25 years ago, and it still amazes me how you can come up with a script like this. I mean Tarantino had written the script for True Romance and Reservoir Dogs before this, but this is just beyond belief in my book.

I’m pretty fuckin far from okay! – Marsellus Wallace

if you give that fuckin’ nimrod fifteen hundred dollars, I’m gonna shoot him on general principles. – Vincent

Samuel L. Jackson’s performance is Oscar worthy, don’t get me wrong, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Ving Rhymes, Amanda Plummer, Tim Roth and Bruce Willis all have amazing performances. But Mr.Jacksons is extraordinary. It really is a once in a lifetime apperence, when the enviroment is perfect, a director who lets him do his thing. Just amazing!
