Why Watch it Today?: Writer/director Quentin Tarantino was born today in 1963. Although 1992’s Reservoir Dogs first earned Tarantino critical attention, 1994’s Pulp Fiction was Tarantino’s breakout hit, a then-fresh mix of crime, pop culture references high and low, non-linear plotting and an eclectic soundtrack. Waves of imitators followed, but Pulp Fiction is still the gold standard. Watch it with your favorite tasty beverage (perhaps a 5 dollar milkshake?) and a Big Kahuna burger (or maybe a Royale with Cheese?).
