A little trivia: Pulp Fiction was one of the reasons Flickchart was built. It was Pulp Fiction vs. The Empire Strikes Back that spurred the first matchup debate. It convinced us a website needed to be built to determine which movie more people think is the better film. (I say Empire.)

Pulp Fiction is one of those films that will never get old. I saw it many years back and have since bought it and have seen it countless more times. A truly great film.

I really believe that Pulp Fiction is the most influential film of all time. It's at the top of my chart and will most likely stay there for a very long time. It will be almost impossible to beat.

I have always loved Pulp Fiction but there is something about this re-watch that made sure this movie became my #2 on Flick Chart. Absolutely amazing movie with perhaps the most quotable dialogue and some of the most lovable characters. I can't wait to re-watch Reservoir Dogs to see if it comes higher on my Flick Chart

Watched it again last night, was once again blown away. Some of the dialogue is just out of this world. I think the ending is one of the most well written closings to any film.

How the hell does Tarantino come up with this stuff? Pure genius.

Monts ago I watched half of it and though "Really, it's not that good?" Today after watching the whole fucking thing I'm asking myself yet again, but this time "Why is this movie so awesome?". Such an amazing film from start to finish

Well where is the damm story ?.
Granted performances are good the screenplay too but the lack of story or any tension(minus the ending)made the movie a bit lack lusture.

This is the best film ever made. It has great performances (John Travolta especially surprised me),best screenplay ever writen( it makes 10 minute dialog scene about foot masages,hamburgers and french fries entertaining. Now that is legendary!),and most impressive narative structure ever. And the so called "lack of story" here is irrevelant. This movie has just enaough story to be understandible but mo overcomplicated and to make the dialog fit. Tarantino shows us just how avoidable story can be when everything else is pure masterpiece. This is as good as movies get.

I’ve just wasted 154 minutes of my life on this overrated, empty and disjointed "movie". No story, no depth. The characters are cardboard cutouts that talk about McDonalds and Pot Bellys and every drawn out dialogue/exposition sequence is absolutely pointless! I don’t understand why it’s so loved when it means so little!

True dat. I don't get the appeal either, though it's less indulgent that Tarantino's 21st century output.

Fragmented story with lively characters, sharp dialogue, over the top violence and dark humor. Two and a half hours of pure entertainment. The film has great atmosphere, pacing, editing and direction. It also boasts first rate performances from its memorable ensemble cast. A 90's classic.

This movie is NOT overrated. All of the performances are good, the plot, while sometimes a little confusing, is still great. The soundtrack is great too. Travoltas performance was really good, when I first watched it I though he would be the weak link of the cast, considering the cast has well respected actors like Jackson, Thurman, and Willis. But his performance was just as good as any of theirs IMO. All in all, this movie deserves all the praise it gets, which includes being #2 on my Flickchart. Oh, and who doesn't love Uma Thurman!!!

I don’t have much to say other then it’s as masterful as everyone says. To this day it’s still funny as hell and has you on the edge of your seat a lot. I was sad when it ended cause I wanted more. 12/10.

Pulp Fiction is a wild post-modern mix of neo-noir thrills, pitch-black humor, and pop-culture touchstones that was one of the most influential films of the 1990s.
