One of my favorite John Travolta films is Pulp Fiction. This crime drama from 1994 garnered John his second Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his portrayal of hitman Vincent Vega. His first nomination was for his leading role in another favorite of mine - Saturday Night Fever from back in 1977. Director Quentin Tarantino is credited with reviving Travolta's stalled career by casting him in this role.
Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson were also nominated for Oscars. The movie was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director. It received the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. I love the rich, unique dialogue in the film and it's mixture of humor and violence. We have Pulp Fiction in our DVD collection and I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.
John Travolta gets to show off his considerable dancing skills in this movie. Here is his famous dance scene with Uma Thurman -
