No Pulp Fiction, eh?

Figured someone would have it by now... Come to think of it, I don't think there's been any Tarantino yet.
I knew there had to be a Pulp Fiction in here.

Edit.

Oh, and what about Natural Born Killers? I haven't seen that one.

She's like a 1st cousin you were attracted to that you knew was wrong. Then later finding out she was adopted but it's hard to get that feeling out of your system.

PS - I had a cousin exactly as described! :fro:

Almost as bad as trying to make out on a first date with Neil Young's "Down by the River" in the background.

Hahaha....not exactly a rom-com, is it?

I took a girl to see Seven on a first date. That was a good one. Ended up marrying that girl.

We had this theater back in our hometown that would play all kinds of crazy ****, and they'd let you bring beer in. Like, ice chests of beer. They really didn't care. We got piss drunk and saw Doom Generation, Monty Python's Meaning of Life, Clockwork Orange, Enter the Dragon, and lots more together. She's a keeper.

Could've been worse. I took a first date to go see Sunset starring Bruce Willis and James Garner back in the 80's and it was disastrous.

My Wife still blames me for being mentally scarred for life from that movie. I liked it. :)

If we're truly talking the best movie ever made (and not favorite movie) I think the hands down, can't argue, just freakin' is answer would be:

Casablanca

I think that Casablanca is about as close to a perfect movie as we've ever been able to make. It's funny, it's exotic, it has iconic characters, the story has political, philosophical, psychological and emotional weight.

It's about love. It's about war. It's about friendship. It's about loss. It's about right. It's about wrong. It has Nazis AND it's set in a bar for pete's sake!

Watch it again, see if you don't agree that there is not an extraneous scene or word in the whole movie.

Perfection.

Yes, I love this one. I have the Bluray version. You could say the same about other Bogart movies like African Queen and Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Only saw this once in this thread, but In Bruges is a kick ass movie. I think it ties for first with the Departed.

Also really really like Sunshine by Danny Boyle...or anything else by Danny Boyle for that matter. One of the most underrated and unheard of movies IMO.
