The "King Kong of crime movies" is 20 years old today.
Rolling Stone gave "Pulp Fiction" that moniker upon its release, and it's hard to argue that the name doesn't still ring true two decades later. The Quentin Tarantino classic roared out of the gates after winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes, intertwining tales of violence and redemption in 1990s Los Angeles, much to the delight of the world.
And it seems the world has not forgotten.
"Pulp Fiction" is quoted endlessly even today -- yet it still (somehow) manages to remain fresh. The self-righteousness of Samuel L. Jackson's Jules Winnfield announcing itself at every turn, the quiet calm of Uma Thurman's Mia before the storm, or the deadpan humor of Bruce Willis's Butch.
To honor the 20th anniversary of "Pulp Fiction" and its collection of unforgettable characters and dialogue, here are the 20 best quotes from the crime classic. Ranked.
