After going to a friends, the other night for our monthly get together with 6 of our other mates I had to go home to do a bit of film research, Why? I hear you ask. Well because I admitted quite loudly to my friends that I had never seen the film ‘Pulp Fiction’. The look of horror on their faces you would have thought I had just told them that I had decided to move to the South Pole to live with the Penguins.
Well after the hysteria had calmed down I was told in no uncertain terms that I had to sit and watch the film immediately. So that is exactly what I did. I watched the whole film whilst seven of my closest friends watched me constantly to see what my reaction was to every little scene. It was very off-putting. Well of course there was an after showing grilling from them all where they wanted to know my favourite bits, so I thought I would share them with you.
- The dance at Jack Rabbit Slim’s – what a delivery by Uma and John. As is common with Tarantino films there is always a pop-culture reference somewhere in the films and this one will definitely stick in my mind. Choosing Chuck Berry’s ‘You Never Can Tell’ added to this great scene. If only I could pull off something like that when I go to https://www.undertheprom.com/ which is one of my favourite Cheltenham Nightclubs!
- I shot Marvin – I wasn’t expecting this action-packed film to have such a funny moment and probably one of those awkward funny moments when you feel like you shouldn’t actually be laughing but you can’t help yourself. Marvin is shot in the face after the gun accidentally goes off during an everyday conversation with Vincent.
- Samuel L Jacksons scene reciting the Ezekiel 25:17 passage is pure genius and Jackson delivers it incredibly which is probably why it has been noted as one of his most memorable acting moments. I know actors are paid to learn and repeat lines but to remember the whole passage and deliver it with such emotion and conviction is testament to the actors’ skills.
I could go on and on about some of the amazing scenes in this film, but they are probably my top three. I was so impressed that I may even have a Pulp Fiction themed party for my next birthday. I had better get practicing that dance routine!
