Goofs

(at around 1h 45 mins) In the dungeon scene where the two perverts, Maynard and Zed, are raping Marsellus, Butch comes in to rescue Marsellus and finds a sword. When Butch goes downstairs to the dungeon, Marsellus is hog tied with gag ball in his mouth getting defiled. Butch kills Maynard, with the sword and is about to kill Zed. Marsellus now gets up having miraculously freed himself without Butch cutting him loose. How could Marsellus suddenly get up from being hog tied before Butch, occupied with killing Maynard, could free him? See more »

Pumpkin: I know that's what I always say. I'm always right, too.
Yolanda: But you forget about it in a day or two.
Pumpkin: Yeah, well the days of me forgetting are over, and the days of me remembering have just begun.

Unbelievable.
19 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Pulp Fiction may be the single best film ever made, and quite appropriately it is by one of the most creative directors of all time, Quentin Tarantino. This movie is amazing from the beginning definition of pulp to the end credits and boasts one of the best casts ever assembled with the likes of Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth and Christopher Walken. The dialog is surprisingly humorous for this type of film, and I think that's what has made it so successful. Wrongfully denied the many Oscars it was nominated for, Pulp Fiction is by far the best film of the 90s and no Tarantino film has surpassed the quality of this movie (although Kill Bill came close). As far as I'm concerned this is the top film of all-time and definitely deserves a watch if you haven't seen it.
