Pulp Fiction is SO overrated. Yeah...it's a good movie, but come-the-freak-on! I would have ranked Apollo 13, Schindler's List, and (yes) Forrest Gump over Pulp Fiction. I like Quentin Tarantino but he's not as good as a lot of people think he is.
Apollo 13 over Pulp Fiction? C'mon dude. If we're talking movies of the 90's that are overrated Apollo 13 is near the top of that's how everybody feels about it.
20-30 years from now you're not going to hear debates whether or not Apollo 13 was the best movie of the past 40-50 years. You will probably hear Pulp Fiction in that debate. It's not my #1 of the 90's, but it's up there. Pulp Fiction was a very original idea (cue the "inception was ripped of a daffy duck script" guys), Apollo 13 was kind of gift wrapped for anybody who wanted it.
As far as Tarantino, there aren't many guys in history who started a career as strong as he did/has. Ron Howard? Eh, not so much.
