Your bad opinions began there.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Please tell me you are fucking joking.

I sincerely hope you are joking, because I've heard people manufacture better "Pulp Fiction is about" stories than you have.

"Jules realization of humanity"

Are you fucking serious? I hope to fucking god that was not one of the central themes, because if it was, it was done terribly, wasn't fleshed out well at all, and is overall just plain uninteresting. Jules walked around and said hip things and shot people. That is what he did. He didn't realize a gotdamn thing.

"Mia's exposure as a fraud"

Are you fucking serious?

Fraud from what? When was she not a fraud? When was her character sufficiently developed that I am supposed to give a fuck about her enough to be even marginally moved by the fact that she might be a fraud? Mia is a pointless character, and her exposure as a "fraud" is not apparent or done well.

"Butch's ability to capitalize on his rage?"

Are you fucking serious?

Let the gods of mal-originiality strike downeth thee.

75% of all action movies, revenge movies, redepmtion movies feature a male protaganist who "capitalizes on his rage." Hell, Bruce Willis does just that in OTHER MOVIES better than he did in 'Pulp Fiction'.

>See above and I'll explain any of that to you if you want. And
>to call Pulp Fiction underground? Seriously, there is nothing
>underground about it anymore.

You've done a lousy job explaining what its central themes were. I actually don't want your
opinion anymore. Sorry.

>Idiots? And it just so happens that the one person that agrees
>with your opinion is who you consider a "real genius"...

No, he's a genius for other reasons.

He could have loved 'Pulp Fiction' and still been a genius.

He just happened to think it was sucky and pointless, just like I did.


>bullshit. it ushered in movies that could be listened to AND
>looked at and not simply "watched", it brought back dialog
>that didnt simply frame what you could already see happening.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

WHAT THE FUCK WAS SO GODDAMN SPECIAL ABOUT THE DIALOGUE!!!

FOR CHRISTFUCKINSAKES ALL THE CHARACTERS DID WAS RAMBLE ABOUT NONSENSICAL BULLSHIT!!!!

HELL, I'LL EVEN ADMIT SOME OF IT WAS FUNNY BUT IT DIDN'T "FRAME" a GOTDAMN THING!!!!

ITS YOU ALL, THE FILM BUFFS, YOU TURNED 'NONSENSICAL BULLSHIT INTO:

"QT is not forcing the plot down our throats."

"QT is allowing the characters to grow without forcing the action through their words"

BULLLLLSSSSHHHHHIIIITTTT.


>You can watch just about anything, from Jerry Springer to an
>opera. If you cant listen to a monologoue and pick up on the
>nuance of a character or the details of an unrevealed event
>then maybe Pulp Fiction isnt for you.

No, I want a movie that isn't made for internet discussions and latte. That is what 'Pulp Ficition' was made for.

There are dozens of better, more thoughtful, more alternative films than 'Pulp Fiction' .

Like I said, you all like it because it makes you feel intelligent and powerful to say "Look, Vince Vega's steak symbolizes the Book of Kings in the Bible" and all that bullshit.
