Probably my favorite movie, its been on HBO the past two weeks so we got to talking about it at work, and we got into a arguement over whether or not Samuel Jackons says "Check out the big brains on Brad" or if he says Brett, my name is Bret so I clearly remembered the charactor's name being the same but so long story short I was looking online to find out for sure to prove him wrong and found a page with some cool little facts about Pulp Fiction, it was cool to watch it again and look out for them, some are kinda lame i guess if you aren't really into the movie, but still it makes me like the movie even more knowing the little details they put into it that most people would never even notice, several links to Quentine's previous film Reservoir Dogs, he actually originally wrote Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and From Dusk til Dawn as a single related story line but broke them up somewhat, Dusk til Dawn was changed so much that he actually asked his name be removed from the credits, but you can still see a few things linking Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction
*In the beginning when Yolanda and Ringo are discussing robbing the restraunt you can see John Travolta(Vincent Vega) walking to the bathroom in the back ground, if you listen very carefully you can hear Samuel Jackson speaking to Travolta about his "moment of clarity"
*John Travolta's charactor Vincent Vega is actually the cousin of Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs, when The Wolf call's Joe to dispose of the body in the back of Travolta and Jackson's car, it is actually Joe from Reservoir Dogs who used legitimate shops such as the junk yard in Pulp Fiction as a front for his illegal incomes
*The contents of the mysterious brief case Samuel Jackson and John Travolta are after is supposedly the diamonds from Reservoir Dogs
*After the famous dance scene between Travolta and Uma Thurman, the next scene you see is them walking through her door carrying the trophy, you obviously think they won the dance contest, but later in the movie, when Bruce Willis's charactor is going back to his apartment, you can just barely hear a commercial for Jack Rabbit Slim's restraunt coming from one of the other apartments, they mention that the trophy was stolen the prior evening so they actually lost the contest and stole the trophy
*When Bruce Willis is driving from his apartment he's listening to a song on the radio, the lyrics go "smokin' cigarettes and watching captain kangarooooo", in a line from Die Hard III when Samuel Jackson asks him what he's been doing he says "oh just smoking cigarettes, watching captain kangaroo"
*it always bothered me that in a otherwise well made film that when Butch(Bruce Willis) walks back into his apartment and makes pop tarts and stuff that Travolta never heard him and just left his gun on the counter, well after Bruce kills Travolta and goes outside he sees Marsellus Wallace walking down the road, if you notice he has two cups of coffee, so the reason Travolta didn't think anything of Willis walking in the apartment is because he thought it was Marsellus coming back with the coffee and donuts, and its actually Marsellus's gun thats left on the counter
*After Bruce Willis escapes from "the gimp" he starts to leave the store but pauses, and decides to go back in and save Marsellus, why? On his way out you'll notice theres a neon sign on the wall that says "Killian's Red" but some of the letters have burnt out so it reads simply "Kill ed", well when he picks up Zed's key's he stares at the "Z" on the key chain, creating the subliminal message telling him to "KILL ZED"
*The buddy holly looking waiter is played by steve buscemi, who was mr. pink from reservoir dogs, ironically the charactor who gave the speach about why he doesn't tip waiters, looks like karma works in the movies too
*The work "fuck" is used 271 times in the movie making it come in second place for most times the F word is used, Casino is #1 with around 400 and Scarface comes in 3rd
*This might be obvious to some but I was a little confused why Uma Thurman's charactor, an obviously experience coke user, over doses... I totally missed the connection, but when Travolta buys the heroin from Lance, Lances says "we're out of balloons, is a baggy ok", since heroin is usually packaged in a balloon and coke in a baggy Uma Thurman's charactor thought she was just snorting some coke when it was actually super potent heroin
*when Butch kill's the other boxer, he flees in a taxi, the woman who plays the taxi driver actually played the same charactor in a little known tv show pilot but in the show she was a crime scene cleaner, which caused her to become fascinated with death, this is why she keeps asking Butch what it was like to kill a man
don't know if anyone cares but i just thought that was some interesteing stuff to look out for in case you catch it on HBO this week, like i said i already love the movie and that just gives it even more depth, i think its cool that Tarantino gave the movie some kind of connection to other movies and added things that the average person just sitting in the theatre would not know
