I love this film. Everything about it is perfect. The actors, Travolta, Thurman, Jacko, Roth and even Tarantino himself are great. The dialogue is ridden with brilliant quoteable lines like the bible passage. The direction is also superb. But my favourite thing of all is the music. I mean come on. Misrlou as the main theme is great but then you've got "Teenage Wedding" "Son Of A Preacher Man". Tarantino uses music so well in his films. Post your prasie or your dislike of your film on this thread if you havent seen it yet

This is the second greatest movie ever made, and I agree with everything you said, and would also like to add that the cinematography (or lack of) greatly enhances the pulp influence prevalent in the film.

I found it funny when I made this connection, as it says pulp fiction is "characteristically printed on rough, unfinished paper". Well, this film was filmed on an out of focus, disinterested camera. lol. But don't get me wrong. The rough cinematography is a huge asset to the film, and without it, the film would be less enjoyable.

One of the things I like about is how real the atmosphere is. For example, after Marsellus wakes up after the car crash, he sees Bruce Willis and there's a zoom-in on his face. Had it been a more standard film, it would be some kind of omnious sound to signal that he is angry, but there is none.

My favorite scene is probably the pawnshop sequence. Yes, it's disgusting, but the set design, the music, the weapon selection, the payoff, everything's great. It's such a grim place. Come to think off it, the pawnshop scene is like the ear-cutting scene of Pulp Fiction.

Great film.

You've got a point. All of Tarantino's movies has it's bloody, gruesome highlight, Resivour Dogs has the ear-cutting, Kill Bill Vol 1 has the Showdown at The Blue Leaves and Pulp Fiction has the basement scene.

And Death Proof has that awesome car crash in the middle of the film.

Not too sure about Jackie Brown though. The part where Louis shoots Melanie is probably a highlight, but it's not as big and obvious as the other Tarantino films.

True about Jackie Brown: no one scene stands out on its own, but you can't really say that that's a bad thing, as the whole film is on a high from start to finish. Immensely enjoyable, mind.

Yup love pulp fiction. Fantastic script and banter between Jules and Vincent is my favourite aspect.

Great cast, great performances, top soundtrack,

Out and out classic.

One of the best screenplays ever. Its one of those films where if you happen to catch it on cable you will watch it to the very end.

Its the little moments I love, like when the woman who is trying to help Bruce Willis after the crash gets shot in the leg for her troubles - for some reason it makes me laugh.

It's impossible for me to name an all time favourite film and I always avoid such decisions, but I've always said that gun to my head Pulp Fiction is the first thing that comes to mind. It's an absolutely perfect film with arguably one of the greatest screenplays of all time.

Brilliant movie, always in my top ten favourites. Though everyone knows "Misirlou" was the main theme...

Strangely I would go for the adrenaline injection scene as the most cringe-worthy. It had people running out of the cinema hall when I saw it. Must be a lot of people out there who hate big, dirty junkie-owned needles ?
This so far is Quentin's masterpiece (R Dogs a close second) but he may surprise us yet. I think the carcrash is my favourite in movie history.

Christ, I forgot about that scene. What a blackly funny little story that is. Walken does it so dead pan -nice! Samuel L Jackson's best movie by far also. I think he's played the same character in every movie since?

Just saw this for the first time yesterday and I thought it was very good. I think what makes this film great are the characters because they are so funny and unique. Some good performances from Travolta, Jackson, Willis, Rhames, Walken, Keitel and Tarantino. I guess I will look at some of Tarantino's other films now. Hopefully I will enjoy this film on further viewings.

Will have to disagree there. I think it's just less hyped than the others but it doesn't make it any less good. I watched some of it again last night on Film4, I think it is. Forgot how good it was. I'll really need to get it on DVD. Pam Grier is immense in it.

Anyway, Pulp Fiction...

One of my all-time favourites. It's just so bloody watchable. The diner scene is a particular high-point and I love Walken's cameo. I'm away to watch this now.

Does anyone actully have a bad thing to say about this film? Is there one?

Some of the most quotable dialouge ever written and some great on-screen banter. Perfect acting all round, especially Ving Rhames.

definitely a top 20 movie...but only cos it's popped outside of the top ten for a quick smoke
think one of my fav characters in this film is the extremely small steve buscemi part as the diner waiter....never have i seen someone who hates their job that much

love the fact that in chronological order, 'butch' has the first and last scene

Jackie Brown is a fantastic movie. Though not as fun or frankly quite as awesome Pulp Fiction, it is a more mature work that shows what tarantino can do when he reigns himself in a little and doesn't get a little overly self indulgent. And there are plenty of stand out moments.

Pulp Fiction is up there with any of the great films ever made. Wonderfully scripted, brilliantly acted, and put togther in such away that you just want more. A true great.

Guess what else I'm going to see next month... none other than Reservoir Dogs. It's funny, I've wanted to see Dogs and Fiction on the big screen for years, and then suddenly they both come in the same month! No doubt it's because of Django - which I'll be seeing in between. January is going to be awesome
