A mighty fine movie. I don't really want to go in depth since others have already said so much, but 'Pulp Fiction' really shines because of the characters and dialogue. The plot is alright: it's basically three short stories that are connected, and the timeline jumps around a bit, but other than that, I don't understand why some people consider the plot complex or intricate. The first time I saw this movie (November 2004; yes, I am the last person in the universe to have seen this movie) it all seemed pretty straightforward to me. While the three mini-plots are very enjoyable, I would say that 'Pulp Fiction''s strongest aspects are the characters and dialogue. Jules Winsfield, Vincent Vega, Mia Wallace, and Marsellus Wallace are all very memorable and charismatic characters. So is Butch Coolidge, who is my favorite. His backstory involving his father's watch, and the honor that he must live up to, make him very sympathetic.

Now, 'Pulp Fiction' is a movie that is quoted very often, and that can be annoying to some people. It's also been parodied, and some people may not like it at all. There's a lot of swearing, but I think the dialogue sounds very smooth and natural. I feel the same way about 'The Big Lebowski'. It, too, had awesome characters and very nice dialogue (although I think it also has a good plot).

'Pulp Fiction' is an excellent film and I give it an even 5.
