How many times have you popped "the question"?


#1

Being a huge QT fan, I find this a valid topic. How many times have you asked a friend or stranger if they’ve seen Pulp Fiction? Shoot, I felt like I’ve asked it a million times. You know, when you’re in an average-joe movie conversation with someone, you tend to wonder if they’ve seen the ultimate movie. You just have to ask. If they say yes, well now you have a new friend! :wink: You especially know you have a new friend if he/she’s the one that asks you. A year and a half ago, I’ve had a friend ask me if I’ve seen it. I said no. And guess what, that was the person that transformed me into the rabid QT fan I am today!



Okay I’m going to ballpark a number…I’d say I’ve asked the question 60 times.


#2

Recently I’ve asked around 8 people or so at school and none of them have seen it. However, my art teacher and I always have QT discussions.


#3

I don’t remember how many times I popped the question but the response I hated most is “I didn’t like the movie because it didn’t make any sense, the movie is too unorganized”. I think people like that never had a jigsaw puzzle in their life!!!



Maybe it was over 20 ???

A girl I know said to me today “…that movie is like porn!” I was like “What?! Pulp Fiction isn’t porn.” She replies "Oh, well it is pretty much porn."



I can understand Marsellus getting it up the ass and Bruce Willis’ dick maybe being kind of pornographic, but to say the movie as a whole as being porn… that’s stupid.

Don’t forget Butch’s father’s Watch and where it was hidden. And the off screen Oral pleasure scene. Other than that, the movie is not a porno. ;D

It was probably because of the Gimp. That doesn’t justify the fact that your friend is an idiot though.

Porn?!?!? GASP Your “friend” is on crack.



Anyways… I have asked this question countless number of times. So far, I’ve made … 5 friends from asking it, and gotten into countless number of discussions. Fortunately, everyone I’ve talked to loved it.



We just got done watching it in my film class, and those who had never seen it before were asking me all these questions. The biggest one was what was in the suitcase. We were supposed to have a discussion about it, but I live in California so classes are canceled for the week due to the wild fires.

anyone who thinks PF is porn is a first class fuckin idiot. that, or they dont even know what porn is…which would make them an idiot as well.

Unfortunately none of my friends have seen PF, the only time one of them saw a QT film (other than KB now) was in a film class we were in and saw JB.

THis should be called, "how many times have u told moronic teenagers in your class to see an awesome movie called KILL BILL, but they say ,“no” and “I’m seeing the Texas Chainsaw Massacre” FUCK THEM I SAY.



Nobody likes good movies anymore. I’ve recommended Pulp Fiction about 100 times I SWEAR. I pop it everymoment.



and I’ve been recomending Pulp since 8th Grade, and I’m a Junior in Highschool now.



I’ve recommended Kill Bill to everyone I see at school…note: people I “see” not just “know” Thus I tell everyone. Only one person has said, “Oh yeah, that looks good!” Everyone else is "No, I’m seeing ChainsaW"



Morons. PLus they all think Chainsaw is real. MORONS

I love when black people are like “Man! this is like Pulp Fiction, you don’t know the $hit, until you know the $hit, you know what I’m sayin?” HAHA, black’s in general I must say love Quentin dialogue, but I mean HOW CAN YOU NOT?



Much love for anyone interested in a Q.T. Film.


#11

everyone i have a conversation and get into movies with.


#12

I ask that question all the time i keep asking the same people and they start getting pissed off at me


#13

Two people I know said they saw and said it was good. One of them who thinks hes the king shit of movies said: “oh, I like how the movie goes backwards” then I proceeded to have a 20 minute arguement with him about it. In the end he thought he was right. The other guy said remember when Butch chopped the other guys head off… That proves there he hasn’t seen the movie.


#14

I think in Germany almost everbody has seen Pulp Fiction, actually every person I met and I came along with knew Pulp Fiction.


#15

I ask that question to someone at least once a day at my school and it’s a 50-50 toss up. Everyone who has seen it loves it.
