An interesting theory about character duplication in Tarantino’s films in the comments at io9 by Spangarang
I’ve always imagined that Jimmy (QT’s character) from Pulp Fiction is the same guy as Mr. Brown in Reservoir Dogs. Also, I think Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) is the same character as the Buddy Holly waiter in Pulp Fiction. He’s so paranoid about people knowing who he really is, he vehemently objects to tipping in the diner lest anyone find out he’s actually a waiter himself.
Who wants a mashup tee with an iconic image from Pulp Fiction remade using Doctor Who?
I can’t get into Doctor Who, so not me. But I can appreciate its a clever tee for those that like both shows.
I’m a bit surprised that it took this long to get Pulp Fiction added to the National Film Registry.
Variety has a pretty long (for them) article about Quentin Tarantino’s directing style. Its an interesting inside look at his methods and how the actors involved perceive them.
“The first thing he does is clear the entire set of all crew, and you just run the scene until you’ve got it down, and everyone feels their movement and behavior are natural in the space,” Roth says. “His movies are so detailed and beautifully composed, you feel like he has a graphic novel in his head. But it’s the opposite. All the camerawork is determined by the actors.”
So the TSA wants to start testing the drinks we carry on to airplanes (purchased after the security screening) because…, well, because TSA are assholes. So what better way to learn about the new security procedure than thru an adaptation of the Jules Kahuna Burger scene from Pulp Fiction.
You mind if I have some of your tasty beverage to wash this down?
Deadspin has the video of Samuel L. Jackson introducing the Hornets last night in New Orleans. Not surprisingly, he does the Ezekiel 25:17 passage from Pulp Fiction at the 2:55 mark.
Cool story about a Shakespearian adaptation of Pulp Fiction called Bard Fiction. I’d go see that if it was near me.
The storyline is faithful to the original film with a few Shakespearean twists. Christopher Walken’s character, which exists in a flashback in the film, appears as a ghost in the play. Any use of cell phones in the film is replaced with a messenger, cleverly named Sprint. There were no hamburgers or McDonald’s in 17th century England, of course. Instead Jules and Vincent discuss what cottage pie is called in France — hachis parmentier.
The University of Colorado’s International Film Series is doing a group of Tarantino films over the next week or so if you are in the area.
Are Quentin Tarantino’s movies too mean and revengy? Michael Gondry (director of The Green Hornet and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) thinks so – he can only stomach Pulp Fiction.
Some animated GIFs of Tarantino dancing during the Pulp Fiction dance scene at Jack Rabbit Slim’s. I would guess he’s trying to help give Travolta and Uma some help with the groove, but it looks like they are doing alot better than Quentin is, so maybe he’s just goofing around.
Having the GIFs animated makes this so much more fun.
