There is a subtle Back to the Future (1985) reference when Vincent Vega (John Travolta) brings an overdosed Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) to Lance's (Eric Stolz) house for revival. Originally, Eric Stolz shot most of Robert Zemeckis' time travelling classic as Marty McFly, only to be replaced by Michael J. Fox. This point is tributed during the scenes where Lance is hysterically searching for his little black book. Upon closer inspection, next to Lance's television set there are two board games stacked on top of each other. The top one is the game "Operation" and underneath it is "The Game of Life". In Back to the Future (1985), when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) joins his mother for dinner, after being hit with the car. By the television set, there are the same two board games to the left.

Forget it. Too risky. I'm through doing that shit.
You always say that. That same thing every time, "I'm through, never again, too dangerous".
I know that's what I always say. I'm always right, too.
But you forget about it in a day or two.
Yeah, well the days of me forgetting are over, and the days of me remembering have just begun.

Pulp Fiction may be the single best film ever made, and quite appropriately it is by one of the most creative directors of all time, Quentin Tarantino. This movie is amazing from the beginning definition of pulp to the end credits and boasts one of the best casts ever assembled with the likes of Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth and Christopher Walken. The dialog is surprisingly humorous for this type of film, and I think that's what has made it so successful. Wrongfully denied the many Oscars it was nominated for, Pulp Fiction is by far the best film of the 90s and no Tarantino film has surpassed the quality of this movie (although Kill Bill came close). As far as I'm concerned this is the top film of all-time and definitely deserves a watch if you haven't seen it.
