While this movie had great scenes and characters, I can't say I really understood what it was about as a whole. Consequently, I don't know why it's one of the top ten best-rated movies on IMDb.com, but that's a personal problem.


After some thought, I realized that I probably don't like the movie as much as others, because I tend to enjoy story-driven movies over character-driven movies. Thus, while I completely enjoyed the individual stories contained in Pulp Fiction, they're only loosely intertwined and perhaps as a whole don't carry any grand meaning or purpose.

With all that being said, Pulp Fiction is a solid movie and everyone should try watching it at least once, simply for the love of film.


Now if you liked Sin City (2005), then I would highly recommend you watch Pulp Fiction. Both tell multiple stories which intertwine and both are rather violent. Overall, I find Pulp Fiction does a better job at telling the stories, while Sin City focuses more on the action and violence. Note that while the Sin City movie came a decade after Pulp Fiction, the comic series of the same name has a publication date spanning from 1991 to 2000. Also note that Bruce Willis is in both movies.


Instant Comments:
20 minutes into the movie and I'm a bit confused. I mean, I understand more or less what's going on, but I don't see where any of this is going. The best thing I can make of it all is that the movie might be something like Sin City (2005): Little stories to start that eventually all connect one way or another.
Lol. "Go home, jerk off, and that's all you got to do."


Oh my goodness. That was a crazy scene: adrenaline shot.
"Now if you excuse me, I'm gonna go home and have a heart attack." Haha.
Ha. The watch.
Curious he didn't care to turn off the alarm. I guess its more pleasing to have the sound going.
"I'm a get medieval on your ass!"


"It's Zed's." "Who's Zed?" "Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead."
Hahaha. He accidentally shot Marvin.
Ha. "I used the same fuckin' soap you did and when I got finished, the towel didn't look like no goddamn Maxi-Pad!"
Oh, I didn't realize until the phone call that the character Marsellus Wallace was played by Ving Rhames, the actor who played Luther Stickell in Mission: Impossible (1996).


Well, I'd have to say I liked this ending better than the ending to Reservoir Dogs (1992) and the ending to Django Unchained (2012).

HISHE:
This HISHE is pretty good, though you'll only understand the end of The Bonnie Situation if you've seen certain other HISHEs.
