Best Scene in PF?


#1

Personally, I think the whole Vincent and Mia sequence are the best scenes in any movie in the 1990’s. Uma does a great great job, and should’ve won Best Supporting. Anyway, when Travolta is giving himself a peptalk in the mirror, while Mia is singing and dancing in the living room is fucking brilliant.

Butch walking through the apartments and fields to his old apartment. Totally build up tension.

Yeah, I was gonna say, hasn’t topic been done to death?


#5

Then here’s a solution, DON’T FUCKING REPLY, WHAT A CONCEPT, and let it die. I’m not going to look through pages of forums checking to see if a topic has been done before.

The Bonnie Situation is the best part of Pulp Fiction, especially “I just shot Mahhhvin in the head.” And the end scene in the diner is great too.


#7

the end with SammY Jackson giving Ringo the talk of his life in the diner. Jackson should have won the academy award for this film, how can people think Travolta’s was the break out role? Vincent shooting marvin in the face is one of the funniest parts of any movie i’ve ever seen tho…

Actually, Uma Thurman did by far the best job out of anyone acting in this movie,

she was the most boring to me.



anyhow - i liked Sam Jackson & Travolta

Well then it was the script you found boring, she acted that perfectly.  You couldn’t get any better.

She did the worst job acting in this movie. Suffice to say, I think she did wonderful in Kill Bill.

I disagree. The script was great. Her delivery bugged me.



"I don’t know whaat you call that"



And maybe half of what she says in the diner. Great dialogue delivered just below par.





Samuel L. Jackson was the best actor in the movie. Followed by Quentin, Travolta, Ving Rhames, and Bruce Willis. Then Uma.


#12

Wow led, you have no fucking clue what acting is.



Ask almost any credic, who did the best job acting in Pulp Fiction, the majority WILL say Uma Thurman.


#13

Uma was great!! So much so she even got nominated for an oscar. I honestly don’t know why some of you guys make such absurd statements sometimes.


#14

I know I might get flamed for this… but my favorite part in the movie is the Jack Rabbit Slim’s Dance Contest. I’ve heard a lot of people express their disdain for this scene, but I love it! My friend and I are doing it for the talent show at the end of the year.


#15

The whole dance between Uma Thurman and Travolta is another scene adored by credics, the way it was done was fantastic. It’s one of my favorite parts as well.


#16

my favorite part is when butch is listening to counting flowers on the wall and sees marsellus walking across the street with his coffee and marsellus sees him and goes, “mutha fucka.” when i first saw that, i was like oooooohhhhhh sshhhiiittt

Exactly! That and when Vincent crashes into Lances house are the best parts of the movie.


#18

that scene is straight out of Psycho-when Butch sees Marsellus


#19

personally i don’t give a flying fuck what any critic thinks in any situation. if they had any talent in the first place theyd be making flicks instead of bashing them.



uma thurman did a good job acting in this flick but i saw nothing too incredibly special in her performance. she makes a sqaure in the air which is actually a rectangle and for that sam jackson gets my vote for best actor from this film.



next would be ving rhames, travolta, and harvey keitel

u guys are all GAY! To say that UMA thurman was a bad actor is a disgrace. Every single person in Pulp Fiction, even the extras were amazing. I personally enjoyed the role of Jules the most, mainly because of his humour, but i think the best acting was done by John Travolta. He was just so god damn cool. They way he was shitting himself the whole time at the diner, and the way he just sat back at Brad’s house. Just brilliant. They were all brilliant.
