    Am I the only person who hasn’t seen it? I was at a BBQ earlier this evening and the look of shock on the other guests’ faces when I said I hadn’t seen it. Will it live up to the hype if I do watch it?

    Does anything ever truly live up to the hype?

    However, I saw it at the cinema when it first came out, and have seen it a number of times since, I love it.

    I think it’s probably a bit of a love /hate thing, it has a non-linear time line for a start, which my wife didn’t really get on with.

    Have you seen any Tarantino films? If not, it’s a good one to start with… if you have you’ll know if you like them or not.

    It’s an amazing film. Time has been kind to it I think.
    Probably not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s pretty special and a highlight of 90s film making.

    At this point, yes, you probably are the only person who hasn’t seen it.

    You probably have seen enough parodies, comedy sketches based on it, memes referencing it, etc, that it might seem a bit old hat if you watch it now.

    edit: … which is not to say don’t watch it. It was quite hyped at the time, but I think the hype has subsided sufficiently by now that you can look past it 😂

    One of my favorite films. I have watched it many times. I notice something new pretty much every time I watch it.

    Watch it by yourself with the sound turned up with a beer in hand.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Though you will need to watch it at least twice in order to put all the individual scenes into the correct chronology.

    The only film I’ve watched more is Snatch.

    It’s great. But can be tricky to follow as it jumps about at times

    Never watched any Tarantino films.

    I just don’t do violence very well so there’s very few films I do get to watch. If they could do PG rated versions of them all I’d be fine.

    Slowoldman has it with the proviso of “if you like Tarantino”. It also definitely merits a second watch to really follow the various plot lines.

    Try Death Proof. It’s 99% dialogue.

    Probably not the only one but possible one of a few of a certain generation. It’s fantastic, the man knows how to make a film.

    Try Death Proof. It’s 99% dialogue.

    So, it’s a Tarrintino film.

    Just to make everyone feel old, Pulp Fiction came out 27 years ago

    One of my favourites as well, was a different class of film when it first came out, always remember how slick the dialogue and flow of the film was, the whole weird scene with Christopher Walken, then suddenly realising the whole reason for that 5 minute scene being in was due to a later action to make the audience agree with the way the movie did that.

    Don’t get me wrong, it had a lot of overly done parts where you see Tarrantino’s flaws, but at the time it was a great movie that was just different

    I hadn’t seen any hype when I saw it at the cinema in late teen/early twenties and I was blown away- there isn’t much to compete it to and I didn’t really enjoy other Tarantino stuff as much but I thought PF was brilliant- dialogue and soundtrack especially. Don’t watch it with your kids!

    Easily Tarantino’s masterpiece. Great movie. Watch it if you haven’t seen it.

    Had a girlfriend at the time who kept at me to watch it and I refused as I was not into gangster type movies.
    Eventually caved in and thought it was one of the the best films I ever saw. Even bought the Godfather Trilogy afterwards.
    Still not seen Resovoir Dogs yet though.

    Don’t think you need to be a Tarantino fan to enjoy it, just love good movies, it’s one of the all time greats. He’s been chasing it ever since, and never come close (and I say that AS a Tarantino fan!)

    I just don’t do violence very well

    by modern standards, it’s extremely tame!

    Still not seen Resovoir Dogs yet though.

    That was just the gory Prelude without a soundtrack of note, PF out ranks it by miles, I wouldn’t bother tbh.

    Not sure it will be shown on telly again,

    I have it on DVD, that’s next Friday night sorted.

    My favourite film, watched it by chance in the cinema after the film we went to watch was sold out so watched without any expectations. Don’t feel too bad about not having seen it, someone I used to work with had seen almost no classic films including star wars, highlight of the afternoon talking films was asking him if he’d seen Jaws to which his response was ‘is that the one with the shark?’ still use that line in work probably 8 years later if someone in my team asks me if I’ve seen a film and we still laugh.

    I’m not a big fan of Reservoir Dogs but I will never hear ‘Stuck in the middle with you’ without it bringing that scene in the film to mind

    brilliant film. I had a cassette tape made from just the dialogue, and used to listen to it in the car on my then long commute. So many masterpiece lines.

    ‘Would you give me a foot massage?’

    and used in my house now the kids are old enough

    ‘Pretty please with sugar on top……[insert foofin task to be done] ‘

    Not a big Tarantino fan, didn’t particularly enjoy reservoir dogs, and seen his others and thought they were average

    But pulp fiction is in a different league altogether. Brilliant film, it’ll require a couple of viewings but well worth it. An absolute masterpiece

    Inglourious Basterds is the best Tarantino film IMHO – watched it many times.

    I didn’t get the chance to watch reservoir dogs and pulp fiction until 1995.

    I bought the cassette tape and even from looking at the pictures on the inner sleeve, I knew that it was essential viewing.

    At the double-bill, I thought that Rd was overhyped, but pf had me squirming with laughter at all the crazy plot twists (motha-f***@!!!) and utterly engrossed with its portrayal of the whole sleazy la underbelly.

    I enjoyed the way that the film made you wonder what the characters would go on to do.

    The music was outstanding, particularly the ‘twilight zone’ incidental score with the chopper. “Whose chopper is this?”

    You will feel a deep sense of glee from start to finish.

    Since we’re doing confessions, did anyone else not hate Jackie Brown?

    “I enjoyed the way that the film made you wonder what the characters would go on to do”

    Definitely this, It hadn’t occurred to me before but I can’t think of a movie which does this so well.I wonder if it’s the jump cut style that encourages this feeling?

    I love pretty much every Tarantino film*, but despite trying several times, just can’t stand Jackie Brown.

    One of my top ten films. Love it. Pam Grier and Robert Forster were excellent, and De Niro gave a good performance of his real self (IMV!).

    That’s when I gave up on Tarantino. I saw Reservoir Dogs when it first came out and thought it was excellent. I watched Pulp Fiction years later and thought it was amusing but gimmicky. Jackie Brown was just boring. I think I tried watching Kill Bill on a plane but gave up – it just seemed stupid. I have deliberately avoided Tarantino’s movies since then, I think he’s massively overrated, he just isn’t as clever as he thinks he is.

    I like Jackie Brown. The only film I didn’t really get on with is the Hateful Eight.

    Not watched all of it, I watch bits when it’s on TV, get bored, change channels.
