OK, it was fun watching this and that's all about it. Neither a classic nor an amazing piece of cinematic masterpiece everyone is talking about. It's always funny when two guys pick up guns and use words like "motherfcker", Tarantino didn't invent it.
My problem with "Pulp Fiction" is that I found it to be nowhere nearly as spectacular as I was told it was. There is no real insight here, just stylistic escapades and this would be fine as well, but they don't help much either. There are some fine scenes here and there, however. Overall, I think this is just a fancier popcorn flick, nothing more, nothing less and, yes, the perfect venture for film snobs.
Tarantino certainly took the world by storm with Pulp Fiction, an imaginative and irreverent cocktail of astute script-writing, effervescent dialogues, cool soundtrack and some of the most charismatic faces on earth brought back to life. On the minus column, a cheese burger hasn't got enough panache to blind you forever, the house uber-violence becomes repulsive and the trademark recurrent themes, childish.
