You are aware that there's an invention called television, and on this invention they show shows, right?

Still don't get why everyone loves Pulp Fiction.  It was ok but I never considered it a classic.

I could quote that line after hearing it once. That's why it's so memorable & quotable.

It's a person that sits in the front of an airplane and flies it... but that's not important right now.

I always thought 2/3 of it was fantastic, but the part with Vincent and Mrs. Wallace was boring and forgettable.  Once you made it past that, it's a fun movie.

From TFA

(Or, he can quickly relearn it after the Graham Norton pre-interview. Still enjoyable!)

So, no

He messed up the last line a bit.  It should be "and you will know my name is the lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee".  He said "and you will know I am the lord when I lay my vengeance upon you".

I laughed out loud in the theater when I saw that in Winter Soldier. I had to YouTube a clip to show my daughter since she didn't understand what was so funny.

It's not for everyone. It does go pretty slow in some parts, lingers a bit too much, but it has some fantastic scenes and most of the dialog is very well written. Not to mention Jules and Winston Wolf might be the coolest characters ever constructed.

Like most classics, most of the stuff that makes it distinctive was almost wholly unique, or at least the combination of elements was unique, at its time of publication.  Also like most classics, it's less impressive if you first see it a decade later when everyone's spent so much time and effort constantly ripping it off that it's become a collection of standard tropes retroactively.

Even just rolling with nonlinear storytelling (without some obvious mechanic like flashbacks etc) was pretty unusual at the time, something most of the target audience wasn't going to be familiar with.

Apparently, yes.  It substituted a "zero out of ten" with the embarrassing admission shown above.

I don't know what it is... it just seems that as a general rule, they do better tv in Britain. They lose on the numbers but win on the quality.

Really? I thought it was great. I thought it was the only Tarantino movie that wasn't a ripoff of something else. And it set the tone for most of the films of the 90s.
