Critics and audiences worldwide hailed PULP FICTION as the star-studded picture that redefined cinema in the 20th Century! Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Academy Award(R) Winner -- Best Original Screenplay, 1994) delivers an unforgettable cast of characters -- including a pair of low-rent hit men (John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson), their boss's sexy wife (Uma Thurman), and a desperate prizefighter (Bruce Willis) -- in a wildly entertaining and exhilarating motion picture adventure that both thrills and amuses!
This collector's edition of Pulp Fiction retains several supplemental features from the out-of-print Criterion Collection laserdisc, adding some fine bonus material of its own. A new documentary combines cast and crew interviews from various sources with on-set footage and healthy hindsight on the Pulp Fiction phenomenon, while the Charlie Rose hour from 1994 remains a definitive interview from the peak of Quentin Tarantino's stratospheric success. Better yet is Michael Moore's priceless off-the-cuff interview with Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson, and producer Lawrence Bender at the 1995 Independent Spirit Awards--a refreshing and high-spirited moment of indie-Hollywood candor, with all pretense of seriousness removed. A comprehensive archive of reviews and articles (including one by Tarantino) will prove of lasting value as reference material, and the exclusive DVD-ROM features include "enhanced playback," allowing users to watch the film accompanied by informative text, or side by side with the screenplay. And since the otherwise talkative Tarantino doesn't do commentaries, an "open-mic" feature allows do-it-yourself commentary--it's like karaoke for cinephiles! --Jeff Shannon

This may be John Travolta's best role. He is an actor I dislike intensely, but in this role I could overlook that. He is Vincent Vega, a hit man who works for the mob. The more messes he gets into, the worse they become. We see him with his partner, Jules, played by Samuel L. Jackson, on their way to visit drug dealers, and are discussing the French word for Quarter Pounders. Sounds pretty innocent, does it not?
Travolta is asked by his boss, Ving Rhames to take his wife, played by Uma Thurman,out for a night. Travolta turns up stoned, and can barely talk. They go to Jack Rabbit Slim's, a 50's theme restaurant. Thurman overdoses and a mess develops.
Around every other corner is another mess to be cleaned iPhone. The action is violent, the conversations hilarious, and the writing if this film one if the best. Of course, the director, Quentin Tarantino is superb, and really he cannot outdo himself with another film.
We laughed and cringed our way through this film, and I thought, this needs to be seen on a regular basis!
Highly Recommended. prisrob 04-27-14
This movie is, in my opinion, Tarantino's best work. Like most Tarantino films, it has a hip and engaging dialogue. The dialogue alone is pure gold...I could honestly just listen to this movie without watching it.
The acting in this movie is incredible...not much else there compares to it. I guess it helps to have a cast full of top shelf stars. And it has the usual Tarantino cast members, including Tarantino himself, of course. And this is, in my opinion of course, Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta's best acting period. This movie definitely defined both of them. I know that's a bold statement considering Travolta in Grease, but give this movie a view and you'll see what i mean.
The soundtrack for this movie fit's every scene perfectly...it gives me goosebumps to see how well every song fits it's particular scene. The cinematography is unparalleled as well.
I love the timeline setup of this movie...there's scenes in the future, flashback scenes, and different stories that all tie together. I've seen this movie at least 100 times and notice something new every time I watch it.
Anyways, if you haven't seen this movie somehow and are thinking about getting it; do it. Don't be a square. It needs to be seen by anyone who appreciates a top notch movie.
I also purchased the movie "Go" along with this one since people have made so many comparisons. Anyway, Go is no Pulp Fiction but, I will say I actually liked it too. It does follow the same format by intertwining stories although, Go depicts a more "common" cast of characters which may appeal to a younger audience.
Both movies are filled with drugs, sex and violence...Please be cautious to whom you allow to watch these movies.
FYI: I purchased the DVD (not Blu-ray) version for the 2nd (bonus material) disc...Unless you're interested in a lot of back lot scenes, there really isn't a lot of extras included. The Blu-ray version may have better video and probably better sound although my DVD has a pretty good picture and the sound was in stereo but not surround-sound.
