Different But Great!

Anyone who has seen the Kill Bill movies can understand Tarrantino's style. This one has a series of stories, some of them related and most of them with John Travolta. One of my favorites involves Travolta and Samuel L Jackson who shoot a guy in their car. They need to clean themselves up and get rid of the "mess." Enter Harvey Keitel as a take charge kind of guy who approaches the problem like a swat team giving everybody orders of what to do, how to do it, and how long each step will take.

Another tale involves Bruce Willis trying to guard a watch that was handed down from his grandfather to his father and then preserved by his father's friend (Christopher Walken) in his rectum during internment at a POW camp. Willis trying to get the watch back gets into a big fight with a crime boss and while they are fighting they are captured by sex fiends for torturous games.

The movie breaks all rules and like Blue Velvet, is like no other movie I have seen before. I have seen the movie 4 times and seem to pick up something new about it each time I see it.

One of the all time best
   This is my favourite film, and in my opinion, the greatest film ever made. Every time I watch it, I can't find a single flaw. From the diner at the beginning, through to Brett's apartment, Butch's fight, Vince Vega's night out, right through to the hostage situation, it's perfectly scripted, plotted and paced.      Quentin Tarantino, my favourite director after this and Reservoir Dogs, is at his finest with this staggering film. Every camera move …

**** out of ****     If there's anyone to take pop culture and flip it to a whole other side, it's Quentin Tarantino. In a world of darkness and unoriginality in the film industry, Tarantino is there to remind us of what cinema is all about; and he does this just about every time he makes a movie. He has made great films, although "Pulp Fiction", a film which is almost unanimously known as a masterpiece, is his best. And it's also one of the best films I have seen as of now, …

This is by far my favorite movie of all time.  I have to admit I only saw it for the first time a few years ago but have loved it ever since.  I watch it a ton and it makes me laugh every time.  I really love all the different story lines and how Tarantino ties them together.  It's fascinating that you never find out what is in the briefcase too.  I love Sam Jackson and although I am not a huge fan of John Travolta, I love the two of them together.  I think they …

Tarantino's blockbuster drama in 94 was hyped to me to the point that it could only fail. It has it's moments for me but it's writing and energy impressed legions and inspired numerous knockoffs for years to come as well as inspiring the way movies are looked at and made. I acknowledge all of this, but still got rubbed the wrong way with it's graphic drug use. If I'm brave I will watch it again.

Opening Titles
WARNING: This review contains spoilers!   Note: In my summary of the plot I have put the film's story into chronological order so that events unfold sequentially. This is not the order in which the events of the film are actually shown.   After the unexpected success of his first film, Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino set out to create his follow-up film, Pulp Fiction, which would prove to be a milestone in his career and would become one of the best films of the decade. Pulp Fiction …

Def. a Modern Classic. QT is on key with his second direction.

Alot of people talk about how this movie revitalized John Travolta's career, but the best parts of this movie are the roles played by Harvey Kietel and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie may push the limits for some viewers, but whatever reality it is in which this story takes place, it is an interesting place to watch. A solid movie.
