Pulp Fiction is one of the greatest crime movies of all time and is the film that turned Quentin Tarantino from an Indie filmmaker into a Hollywood juggernaut. It's got one hell of a cast and the most engaging and complex story that he's ever written.
John Travolta leads this cast in a role that virtually nobody thought he could pull off. He owns the role of Vincent Vega and earns his career redemption with gusto. Sam Jackson killed it as Jules and started a trend that would continue throughout his entire career as the guy who yells "Motherf**ker" as loud as humanly possible. Uma Thurman kicked ass too, playing the coke addicted Mia Wallace with surprising charm. Bruce Willis delivers a great performance too, back when he actually cared.
I love Pulp Fiction and consider it to be an absolute modern classic. From the badass surfer music to Jack Rabbit Slim's, this film has so many iconic moments that to name them all would take too long. It's a great film and will no doubt continue to stand the test of time.
