This is a review of the actual, physical product,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pulp Fiction (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) (DVD)
I am not going to explain the plot or give any viewpoints of this movie. Other reviewers may be as useful as a brain dead vegetable and assume people just go online browsing for movies to buy that they've never heard of before, but I give a little more credit than that. This is a review of the actual product. DO NOT get this version of Pulp Fiction if you are looking to buy a nice collector's edition. It does come with the extra disc; however the packaging is nothing like in the picture. It's in a normal DVD case with one of those duel disc flaps. So the discs aren't touching one another, but there is no nice casing or extra pictures or anything that the advertisement for this product would lead you to believe. I suggest you just save your money and get the normal version (it's only about a $5 difference so if that doesn't matter to you then go for it).

You are reviewing the Blu-ray version which has NOT been released yet. So you are not reviewing "the actual, physical product." You just gave a 1-star review for something that's not out yet. Your review makes no sense.

@VideoGuy, it's because Amazon COMBINES Blu-ray reviews together with the DVD reviews. If you look at the line below his name & just above the actual review, it says its a review for the 2 disc DVD.
It's really annoying of Amazon that they do this, as often we just want to see the reviews of the Blu-ray to see if it has a good transfer, but we end up having to filter through all the reviews of the DVD's as well.
The other downside of combining reviews is even if the Blu-ray is absolutely terrible, the worst Blu-ray transfer ever made & everyone gives the Blu-ray 1 star, Pulp Fiction will still show as 4.5 stars due to the 804 DVD reviews which are mainly positive. I wish Amazon would separate their Blu-ray & DVD reviews back into their relevant listings!

Dear J. Kondakji yeah, they used to have a cool packaging one (I have it on the shelf right now) but Miramax went cheap and released the ones you have.

Your review goes under ALL EDITIONS of this movie: VHS, DVD, DVD, DVD, and BLURAY. Good work, chap.

Hippo, I agree 100%. Would it kill Amazon to split the da*n ratings and make them specific to each actual product. Like you, I find it a pain in the a** to sift through the VHS & DVD reviews to find out if it's worth upgrading to a particular blu-ray edition. Of course you can sort "newest first" but that's no guarantee you won't have to filter through everyone's opinion of the movie to try and ferret out info about the blu-ray versions. Hey, Amazon, if you read these, how about it? Thanks!

Maybe one of the LEAST "helpful" reviews ever written on amazon. Good job J. Komdakji, try reviewing the film next time.

Sorry Cary, I couldn't disagree more. The Original Poster was reviewing the product, which is exactly what this forum is for. Want movie reviews? Go to IMDB. Here the reviewer is telling us that the dvd edition didn't didn't live up to its advertising, which is the kind of information that I want to have before I buy it. I already know I like the movie, or I wouldn't be here to start with.
