Throwback Thursday: Pulp Fiction
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been absent from the site because of reasons and mostly not fun ones. These reasons are all about life and such but whatever, I am sorta/kinda back. As I sit here and watch all the Amazon Prime ever (thanks free trial!), let’s talk about things that I am watching; things like Pulp Fiction.
This here film by director Quentin Tarantino came out in 1994, which is probably when some of you were but babes in your mothers arms and I was about as green as an Amazonian Tree Frog. I think my friends and I saw this movie by sneaking in after we watched something horrible because that’s just what you do when you are young and full of trouble.
This film is kind of brilliant. It has a fair amount of dialogue like most Tarantino films but it’s not excessive like some things before Kill Bill. The use of music throughout this film is vary Tarantino-y. There are lots of awesome songs that add a layer of depth to many of the scenes that highlight the moments the actors share on screen.
I love how this film is out out of order chronologically but then everything comes together brilliantly as the film progresses. Sure there are some excessive moments as far as violence and drug use go but for some reason, the excessiveness of it is so absurd that it’s almost comical.
Why is this movie awesome? Oh no reason, just because of things like this:
John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson are incredible. Their chemistry is perf. Their hijinks are intense!
Uma Thurman is F L A W L E S S – The scene where she ODs and Vincent (John Travolta) takes her to that one dude’s house that looks like Jesus is so out of control and kind of hilarious.
Uma Thurman and JT (can we call him that because I am too lazy to type out his name?) are everything. The diner scene is probably one of the most amazing things I have ever watched on screen.
IDK how many times my friends and I said “The gimp’s asleep.” “Then wake him up!”
Bruce Willis is a boxer and he’s kinda hawt. His story is weird and there are flashbacks about a watch and he kind of saves the day.
Blueberry pancakes. That is all.
I could say more but well, you get the idea. Now it’s your turn. What are your thoughts on Pulp Fiction? Love it? Hate? Meh? Favorite scenes? Let us know in the comments below!
