Pulp Fiction (1994)

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.

Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson)

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.

Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) and Pumpkin (Tim Roth)

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.

Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis)

"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."

Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman)

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: (How It Should Have Ended)
This HISHE is pretty good, though you'll only understand the end of The Bonnie Situation if you've seen certain other HISHEs.
