In a flurry of cool music, stylish editing and quick-fire one-liners, Pulp Fiction shook the filmmaking world when it burst onto our screens in 1994. Pop culture has never been the same again. Still fresh, still vibrant - Pulp Fiction`s long anticipated arrival on an astounding two disc collector`s DVD assures the film`s place in the pantheon of all-time greatest movies. This is the ultimate Pulp Fiction experience. Re-authored on DVD and packed with unmissable extras, Tarantino`s controversial and critically acclaimed gem is a must-own for every film-lover and DVD enthusiast.

Tarantino throws us into a world of colourful characters in the seedy underbelly of modern day Los Angeles. In an exhilarating whirlwind tour we are introduced to three interconnected stories told in a fast-paced collage of music, drama, violence and comedy. The film opens with two small-time thieves, Honey Bunny and Pumpkin - a pair of lovers who hold up a diner. Next is the story of dry-witted duo Vincent Vega (John Travolta - Swordfish, Face/Off) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson - Unbreakable, Jackie Brown), two hit men on duty for the "big boss" Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames - Mission Impossible, Bringing Out The Dead). Marsellus` sexy wife Mia (Uma Thurman - Batman and Robin, Gattaca) takes a dangerous liking to Vincent, she insists he take her out and shows her a good time. The third segment of the interlocking stories focuses on a down-and-out boxer Butch Coolidge - (Bruce Willis - Unbreakable, Armageddon) who finds himself on the run from the powerful grasp of Wallace. This section is the darkest of the three but characteristically Tarantino still manages to bring humour to a gruesome tale. It is not until the final dramatic show-down that we realise how all the stories relate to one another.

Your Opinions and Comments

10 / 10
About time by favourite movie of all time gets a decent DVD release. Tarantino`s masterpiece is an evolution in crime cinema and sets new hights for a crime film. Travolta and the rest of the cast (Sam Jackson, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman and Christopher Walken) all give excellent performances and bring the film to life.
The film gets a DTS audio track, but is extremely similar to the DD 5.1 and the picture is grainy at times.
Extras wise the disc is full of them, don`t get to worked up over Deleted Scenes, they arn`t that interessting, but the rest is documentaries with a lot focusing on Tarantino, he likes to talk alot and occasionaly gets on your nerves. The rest is the usual Trailers and Studio Making of`s.
