Pulp Fiction (1994)

Quentin Tarantino Film Fest Movie #2

Synopsis: It’s a three-ring circus of murderous-yet-highly-quotable lowlifes!

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: "Cricics and audiences worldwide hailed Pulp Fiction as the star-studded motion picture of the year!"

What Did I Learn?: 1) If you’re going to shoot a lot of heroin at home, it’s a good idea to keep a syringe of adrenaline, AND a medical book handy, and in the same place. 2) In Paris, a Quarter Pounder is better known as a Royale With Cheese. 3) It’s not a good idea to keep heroin in a baggie if the woman you’re dating has a thing for cocaine.

Really?: 1) Wow...Butch (Bruce Willis) has no trouble at all escaping from those perverts, even though he's bound and tied to a chair, does he? 2) I’m shocked that Vincent (John Travolta) and Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) are afraid of getting stopped by the cops for driving a blood-soaked car... the cops never once show up in this entire movie! 3) For a guy who’s married to a black woman, I’m surprised Jimmy (Tarantino) employs the “n-word” as often as he does. 4) Doesn’t Mia (Uma Thurman) have any girlfriends? Why in the world would Marsellus ask Vincent to take her out on a date?

Rating: Pulp Fiction is undoubtedly one of the very best films from the ‘90s; it’s smart, funny, very well-acted and quite memorable. Highly recommended. 10/10 stars.
