No. 3 – Pulp Fiction (1994)

Written by: Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

Starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, Ving Rhames, Harvey Keitel, and Tim Roth

This could have easily been the number one movie if not for the other two in front of it. Pulp Fiction is, without a doubt, the most memorable movie on this list. From the dance scene between John Travolta’s Vincent Vega and Uma Thurman’s Mia Wallace, to the “gimp” scene involving Ving Rhames’ Marcellus Wallace and Bruce Willis’ Butch Coolidge, Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece gives us his best characters to date along with some of those memorable scenes in modern cinematic history.

In typical Tarantino style, Pulp Fiction follows a multi-timeline narrative, involving three interconnected stories that involve everything from a heroin overdose to an accidental death. The star of the movie is John Travolta, who was widely known to have made a comeback in this film, and his character Vincent can be argued as the absolute peak of his career.

The standout in this film, however, is Samuel L. Jackson, who delivers Tarantino’s sharp dialogue with surgical precision, and makes the film ten times more watchable, especially in the film’s final story. You cannot find something as culturally relevant and timeless as Pulp Fiction, and it is a truly transcendent and trend-setting piece of cinema that everyone could enjoy.
