Pulp Fiction: Movie Review

Every year, Hollywood is abuzz with Oscars fever. Trying to find who will win Best Picture is an art itself to the point that even outlets are posting their own Oscars Betting Odds in sites like BettingTop10 just to try and see how good their predictions are in real-life. One of the lesser known best picture upsets happened two decades ago when the film“Forrest Gump” not only won over “The Shawshank Redemption” but also against Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece, “Pulp Fiction”. All three films are awesome in their own right but surprisingly, we have never seen “Pulp Fiction” until today. Here's our modern take in the film.

From a simple request of retrieving a stolen suitcase for their boss Marsellus Wallace (Vhing Rames), hitmen Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) encounter a series of twists and turns along the way and ultimately the intriguing stories and side plots leading to the importance of the suitcase.
There's probably one reason why “Pulp Fiction” failed to bag the Best Picture award and it's probably because it was sort of a nonsensical experience. But that doesn't mean it ain't a film worth the hype and probably one of the perfect reasons why judging a film by one award alone is pretty flawed. The film really is the quintessential Tarantino experience. Nothing seems what it is and every plot twist is a literal surprise. The screenplay is full of fun and this is probably the most unpredictable film we have seen ever - it still is an original experience even two decades after. Another thing that stood out for us are the visuals. The film has this punchy, pop vibe that helped us be more attuned to the Tarantino experience. Overall, “Pulp Fiction” is one of the quirkiest yet best film experiences we've had. Even without that Best Picture award, this film deserves your time if you haven't seen it yet.
