PULP FICTION (1994)
Most might be familiar with this film especially if you’re a Tarantino fan. To those who don’t have any idea what this movie is all about, it mostly revolves around two hit men (Samual L. Jackson as Jules Winnfield and John Travolta as Vincent Vega) hunting for a briefcase whose contents were stolen from their boss. This film is a roller coaster ride because of its non-chronological order of scenes. So, if you’re not fond of such, this might not be your cup of tea. Nevertheless, this should not stop you from watching it.
