Review of Pulp Fiction   


947 Views   No comments
I think Pulp Fiction is one of Tarantino's most overrated films. That's not to say it isn't a thoroughly enjoyable affair. The film is well cast and I was particularly thrilled to see Bruce Willis back in action, his character is by far my favourite.

The film is literally 'pulp fiction', a series of lurid scenes which eventually evolve into an overall sensationalist plot line. The scenes are roughly glued together in the incorrect order - a Tarrantino trademark of course. The film is extremely memorable and leaves a lasting effect when you watch it. That is to say, it's unforgettable. However, when I watched it I got bored in places. I didn't really care what happened as you don't really feel any lasting attachment to the characters, unlike Reservoir Dogs for example. I am not trying to put a downer on it by any means, but I am utterly shocked at how high this ranks in the IMDb top 250 list. I don't even think it's QT's best film.

couldn't agree with you more. very good film mostly because of the dialog and some key scenes, but very overrated. killer soundtrack though.

The Dialog is the best part of this movie. Directing isn't so well as Reservoir Dogs or Inglourious Basterds. Anyway, Pulp is still good movie, but so overrated...
