Never was the twisted genius of Quentin Tarantino showcased better than in Pulp Fiction ($7). The movie that rejuvenated the career of John Travolta is as popular now as it was when it was first released nearly 20 years ago. The story of two mob hit men,a boxer, a gangsters wife, a box and two diner bandits are intricately interwoven as only Tarantino can. The result is a movie that assaults all your senses and one that you simply can't stop watching. Starring alongside Travolta are Uma Thurman, Samuel L Jackson and Bruce Willis, and there is something very wrong if you haven't yet set eyes on this modern take of classic film noir.
