Pulp Fiction (1994)

Quentin Tarantino‘s black comedy brought forth a new style in script writing by simply borrowing themes from everyday jargon.

The universality in a Tarantino movie can be identified only in his characters more than the situations in which they find themselves entangled in.

On the personal level, and for a viewer, there is no value whatsoever in anything coming from the pie-holes of his characters.

Added value:

Tarantino’s take on American Pop Culture—no more.

Cast:

Vincent……John Travolta

Jules……Samuel L. Jackson

Memorable lines:

VINCENT

You’ll dig it the most. But you know what the funniest thing about Europe

is?

JULES

What?

VINCENT

It’s the little differences. A lotta the same shit we got here, they got there, but there they’re a little different.

JULES

Examples?

VINCENT

Well, in Amsterdam, you can buy beer in a movie theatre. And I don’t mean in a paper cup either. They give you a glass of beer, like in a bar. In Paris, you can buy beer at MacDonald’s. Also, you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?

JULES

They don’t call it a Quarter Pounder with Cheese?

VINCENT

No, they got the metric system there, they wouldn’t know what the fuck a Quarter Pounder is.

JULES

What’d they call it?

VINCENT

Royale with Cheese.

JULES (repeating)

Royale with Cheese. What’d they call a Big Mac?

VINCENT

Big Mac’s a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big Mac.

JULES

Le Big Mac. What do they call a Whopper?

VINCENT

I dunno, I didn’t go into a Burger King.  But you know what they put on french fries in Holland instead of ketchup?

JULES

What?

VINCENT

Mayonnaise.

JULES

Goddamn!

VINCENT

I seen ’em do it. And I don’t mean a little bit on the side of the plate, they fuckin’ drown ’em in it.

JULES Uuccch!
