A review by Mike Shea Movie Rating: ( * * * * * ) DVD Rating: ( * · · · · )
Pulp Fiction was one of the first movies that really got me seriously into movies. Sure, I had watched them all my life, but this movie made me pay attention to a particular director instead of an actor. Pulp Fiction is a movie that just shatters the mold of movies. The story twists and turns, but never lets you loose. Every charactor is deep and realistic. Every scene is detailed and inventive. This movie put Quentin Tarrentino on the map and he will be riding this all his life. Sure, he gave us Dusk till Dawn and Jacky Brown, but it will be very difficult to beat this one. Easily one of my favorite movies of all time. The DVD is a disappointment though, with a non-anamorphic picture that comes out pretty hazy on a 16x9 screen, and no extras. It is in Dolby Digital 5.1 though, but a movie like this should be a lot better. If you can get a hold of the Canadian version, I hear it has a lot of extras the US release didnt.
