Over rated, pretentious nonsense,
This review is from: Pulp Fiction (2 Disc Collector's Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
Saw this on original release and my view on this film has never changed. A mediocre story told in a overly convoluted way referencing French New Wave and Kurosawa style story edits. Tarantino makes good parts of movies (i.e. the opening of Inglorious Basterds) but they never seem to add up to more than these individual parts with vast tracks of inane supposedly hip dialogue linking the scenes. Nothing is original, all the ideas are plagiarized from better or more obscure films and we are told this is one of the great films of all time! I don't think so.
Pulp Fiction thinks it's cool, it is not. Its intention is to make a cultural statement and it comes across as cringe worthy.
Tarantino now thinks he can rewrite history with Inglorious and Django. The Ego of the man is beyond all comprehension.
