Pulp Fiction is another film that I just watched on Foxtel. I have watched this film many times since I first saw it in the cinema in 1994. It is undoubtedly one of my favourite Tarantino films and perhaps one of my favourite movies of all time. It features lots of Tarantino’s clever and snappy dialogue full of obscure references. Much of the music is great too.

It’s pretty futile talking about the plot of this film, since most of the population of the Earth has seen it. Samuel L. Jackson is brilliant as Jules, whilst this film helped to resurrect John Travolta’s career. There is also the dance sequence between Travolta and Thurman as well that everyone remembers.

The film is great there are only two things about it that are disappointing: 1) that Tarantino has not made a sequel that features Jules walking the Earth getting into adventures and sharing his wisdom and philosophies, 2) that we never got to see Fox Force Five on TV, as that sounds one thousand times better than any of the shit that is currently on TV. Both of these ideas would be awesome.
