After causing a stir with "Reservoir Dogs," Quentin Tarantino made the too-cool-for-school film that would define his career and inspire a generation of aspiring film geeks with 1994's "Pulp Fiction." Tarantino and Roger Avary won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and you can thank -- or blame -- the film for reigniting the career of John Travolta, who was also Oscar-nominated for his role as twist-dancing gangster Vincent Vega.
"Pulp Fiction" features many of the Tarantino-isms that have cropped up in all of his films since, including an affinity for nonlinear storytelling, the uncontrollable urge to drop as many N-words as possible and an obsession for punchy dialogue and oddball characters. Tarantino's world is one parallel to our own except infinitely groovier and more casually violent. Get More »
Comedy Central's "South Park" returns for its 15th season this week ... with, of course, an episode making fun of Asperger's Syndrome. (It's entitled "Ass Burgers.")
The show's cutout animation may be simple, but Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have become some of the most indelible characters in cartoon history.
So, naturally, we've always wondered how "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker would have applied their signature style to some of our favorite movie icons. Our old mate Old Red Jalopy was up to the task. Get More »
In all of film history, the word "what" has never had such a climactic effect on a single movie as it did in "Pulp Fiction." And Samuel L. Jackson, who uttered the word in Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece , can't get enough of it.
The famous scene -- not to mention Jackson's favorite quote from the movie -- is his ringtone, and you can hear it when you watch this exclusive interview with Jackson on MTV.
The interview won't be on the Blu-ray being released on October 4, so check it out now!
Apparently a whole new generation is being influenced by the work of Quentin Tarantino.
"Pulp Fiction," even after 17 years, continues to inspire various spoofs with its colorful characters, endlessly quotable dialogue and bizarre situations. However, we think this is the first "Pulp Fiction" spoof we've ever seen that stars actors who were nowhere near even being born when the movie first came out. Get More »
Just when you think animated GIFs are an antiquated relic of Internet circa-1990s, someone comes up with a new and inventive idea that rejuvenates the medium.
The artist known only as Mr. Whaite decided to try his hand at creating the following neon movie ads, combining a love of film with 1960s pop art. It's hard to pick out a favorite among the lot, but we're partial to "Psycho," if only to see Norman Bates' "mother" slash through the title in beautiful meta goodness.
Seriously, though, we'll take these posters over the original ones released by the studios any day. Get More »
We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don’t have to…
•Yo ho ho, if you're thirsty for another bottle of Captain Jack's rum, here's a little something to tide you over: Myspace describes their visit to the set of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

• The first rule of movie lists is you don't talk about movie lists -- Neatorama provides an exhaustive one of movies where the main character is just imagining things, or being imagined himself. Get More »
It's admittedly difficult to explain why kinetic typography is so fascinating. If you're not familiar with the concept, it involves transcribing the audio of a scene into flashy visual type that makes graphic designers swoon. So, for example, a scream would command a bigger font size than a whisper.
With critics figuratively swooning and audiences literally fainting, Danny Boyle's disarming new film "127 Hours" has become the "Dare I see it?" movie of the season.
The inspirational tale chronicles the real-life ordeal of hiker Aron Ralston (James Franco), who became trapped under a boulder and cut off his own arm to escape. The graphic depiction has left the squeamish running for the exits and us reminiscing about scenes we love to watch through our fingers. Get More »
