Freshly Squeezed Pulp Fiction

Let's take a break from the rom-coms. :)

Pulp Fiction is one of the urban classics and probably the coolest movie Quentin Tarantino's ever made. It's dark, gory, and scary. The suspense could have killed me. It's the kind that makes you grip tightly on your seat and peek in between your fingers. And it's not even a horror film!

It's actually a funny, twisted story about a couple robbing a diner, a boxing fighter, and a bunch of talkative mobsters. The characters are unique and memorable played by an equally cool cast comprising John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, and Samuel L. Jackson.

At first the movie seem scattered but in the end everything makes sense. It touches certain social topics - some controversial especially when it was first shown in the '90s. The lesson in the movie isn't very obvious but I like to think there's something there. You have to see for yourself what it is.

Whether you find it or not, I guarantee you'll enjoy every epic minute because Pulp Fiction is as pulpy as it gets.
