Well I took a quiz to see what Pulp Fiction character I was and the HTML code didn't work here...boo. But anyways I ended up being Jules (Sam Jackson's character) and this is what it said under the picture...
"You're Jules! Damn you're cool. You're the type of person who always acts like everything is perfectly under control, even when it's not. You handle all situations with a sort of amazing coolness that nobody can top. You know all the tricks of the...err... trade, but you often wonder what it all means. Sometimes you feel guilty after hurting people, but often...you dont. Despite this, you get all sorts of respect from people and they generally think of you as one bad mother fucker."
FUCK YEAH MUTHAFUCKA!
I had to write a paper for my Cinema class on a movie that changed the way I thought about something. And duh I chose Pulp Fiction. Here were some of my reasons:
1. People are capable of incredible evil, but people are also capable of incredible good
(example of incredible evil: Sam Jackson and John Travolta, even though they're hit men, can kill with such stoic faces and not even think twice.)
(example of incredible good: Travolta and Eric Stoltz act immediately to save Uma Thurman's life when she accidently sniffs heroin and Bruce Willis, though seemingly a tough guy boxer, is actually a very loving and loyal husband to his wife.)
2. The basic technique of how a movie is made
(example: most people believe that the main character can't die, however Tarantino proves this wrong when he kills off Travolta in the middle of the movie.)
(example: objects don't have to be shown or explained to prove their importance as with the briefcase, which never shows the contents, only a bright light coming from it.)
3. When people work together as a team instead of fight, they win
(example: Travolta and Stoltz work as a team to save Thurman's life.)
(example: Willis and Ving Rhames work as a team to get out of the pawn shop basement where they've been kidnapped.)
(example: Jackson, Travolta, Tarantino, and Harvey Keitel work as a team to clean out the car where Travolta has just blown a guy's head off.)
4. If I ever travel to France I'll know to order a Royale with cheese rather than a Quarter Pounder with cheese, because in France they have the Metric system and wouldn't know what the hell a Quarter Pounder was!
So yeah, these are the reasons Pulp Fiction has changed the way I think. And speaking of Pulp Fiction, The Grandin is doing a midnight showing of a different Tarantino movie each month this summer. June = Reservoir Dogs, July = Pulp Fiction, August = Jackie Brown. I'm excited to say the least =)
p.s. tonight was the opening of the play I'm in, The Real Inspector Hound. it went well and my family and friends were there so I felt loved. I also got O'Charley's out of it so it was a pretty awesome night to say the least! Curt is coming Saturday to see it so I'm sure I'll be uber-nervous then but I'm tooooo excited to see him...going a week without seeing each other is just unfair!
