    Yeah, but Chris Hanson is on NBC catching predators again.

    It's a dead heat as to which show you can catch more often. :D

    I haven't seen a "Catch a Predator" in quite a while. Looks like a new twist where they also interview the decoy girl a lot..

    I often wonder how doped up Travolta was during his scenes with Uma.

    He looks completely out of his gourd.

    I'm not totally enamoried with Pulp Fiction as a whole, but it has about four of the top 10 scenes in movie history.

    Travolta's date with Uma, culminating with when they stab the needle into Uma's heart.

    When Travolta accidentally shoots the guy in the back seat and then the aftermath.

    Bruce Willis and Ving Rhames with the neo-Nazis in the gun shop.

    The restaurant robbery scene.

    "That's a pretty fuckin good milkshake."

    To your list I must add at least two more scenes: Bruce getting his instructions from Ving--he says so much sitting perfectly still--and Walken's "watch in my ass" scene.

    And really, if a movie has almost half of your favorite top 10 scenes...how can you not be enamored with it?

    I'd like to nail one thing as well as Tarantino did this.

    I think that's the only reference to dysentery I've ever heard outside of The Oregon Trail.

    The scenes are absolutely great, but the story as a whole just doesn't do it for me. There are a number of movies that have some great scenes that I wouldn't call great movies. For me, during all the parts other than those four scenes I could just as easily go out to the kitchen for a snack.
