Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown doesn’t get the praise or attention of some of Tarantino‘s other films, but it deserves its place among the great movies of the last 15 years. While it may not be as quotable as Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs, it features some of Tarantino’s deepest characters, and maybe his most compelling overall story.

Jackie Brown was released on Blu-ray on October 4th, with an SRP of $19.99. Although it’s the black sheep of the Tarantino film family, hopefully it will get its due with this excellent Blu-ray release.

Good news. We have a winner in our ‘Pulp Fiction’ caption contest. He’s a very special boy named Chris Ahrens, and he’ll be receiving a copy of ‘Pulp Fiction‘ on Blu-ray DVD. Oh, the pride he must feel! But in all fairness, there were two captions that were funnier than his, but they came from myself and a former Screen Junkies editor, so they were illegible.

At any rate, let’s take a look at the winning caption.

“When life gives you a gag… mmffmm mum mmm”.

Once again, congrats to Chris Ahrens.

Today sees the Blu-Ray release of Pulp Fiction, perhaps the most beloved film by director Quentin Tarantino. Since opening in 1994, Pulp Fiction has become a pop culture touchstone, endlessly referenced and imitated in film and television. How does it hold up by today’s standards? The film is as entertaining now as it ever was, with dialogue you wind up thinking about for days and performances that remain essential for the film’s stars.

The real question is, is it worth the upgrade to Blu-ray? Absolutely. The sound is crisp and engaging (listen to all the nearby chatter during the diner climax), and the picture is clearer than I can ever remember (including poor Marvin’s brains). In fact, the picture is so crisp that you can clearly see Bruce Willis‘ penis when he gets out of the shower. I’d much rather have seen what was in the briefcase.

The extras include most of what was featured on the Collector’s Edition DVD, but with two notable additions. There is a new retrospective featuring the films cast, including John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth and more. They offer some trivia about working with Tarantino before he was a major player, and other neat tid-bits. The other new feature is a film-critic round table discussion of the film, featuring Elvis Mitchell and others. It’s a fun bull session to listen to if you’re a fan of the film.

Pulp Fiction is released on Blu-Ray Tuesday October 4th, with a SRP of $19.99. Highly recommended for the picture and sound upgrades alone, as well as a great catalog of extras.
