Pulp Fiction

There are several storylines throughout the movie and it’s hard to really explain them without telling the whole story so let me just give you some of the characters of the main cast who appear:
Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are two gangsters who work for Marcellus Wallace (Ving Rhames), a mobster who fixes boxing matches and Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) is one of those boxers who gets payed to play in such an orchestrated fight.
Also there’s Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) who’s Marcellus’ girlfriend that needs to be entertained by Vincent but gets into trouble with a little bit too much drug use, and a whole bunch of other colorful characters.
All these characters tend to cross each other to finally have the storyline lead to the grand finale.

Sound and Vision:
Despite some grain we can honestly say that the tranfer is pretty decent with good sharp details, clarity, contrast and color use. Not the best we’ve seen, but still more than acceptable.

Pulp Fiction is a more dialogue-oriented movie rather than pure action but we still get a Dolby Digital 5.1 and a DTS track. Both are very good with clear and understandable voices and good atmospheric spreading of the music through all channels.

Extras:
Trailers from ‘Jackie Brown’, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘Things to do in Denver when you’re dead’. Hardly worth mentioning

Conclusion:
Pulp Fiction became a classic the moment the movie was released and meant the return of John Travolta in Hollywood. The huge amount of celebrities, the brilliant dialogues and splendid storyline with all its twists make this the best movie Tarantino has made up until now and there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t add this one to your collection despite the technical side of the dvd not being the utmost best we’ve seen yet and the lack of decent extras.

Our Score:
8.0
