Theres the shitty van damme Street fighter, and theres about 4 Chiba Streetfighter movies
Return of the Street Fighter?
Sister Street Fighter
Never seen them though, I think I recorded all of them off of TV, definitely will someday
Now on to pop culture references
Jules talks about wlking the earth like cain from Kung foo
Jack rabbit Slims is reference to several 50’s stars
Mia talks about her charlies angels like TV series
Butch sings along "Smokin Cigarettes and watchin captain kangaroo"
Butch grabs the weapons as said earlier
Mia and Travolta dance, Travolta has danced before as we all know
The fact that the movies title is Pulp Fiction, Vincent is reading a Pulp novel, and all of the stories are classic Pulp stories twisted upside down
Jules is a nod to Blaxploitation characters of the seventies
Qt references his own movie(RD) and scripts a few times within PF
on a deleted scene you find out that Vincent is an Elvis man and not a Beatles man
Everyones cool like the Fonze
That’s all I could come up with off the top of my head.
The only thing I could think of is the fact that we as a society (QT’s characters more so) are raised with these characters so ingrained in our culture that they become like friends or relatives (to a certain extent, and I think movie nuts like us are even worse about it). Another way to look at it (and I never really thought of it before) is the fact that everyone in America has some dreams of hollywood (PF takes place in LA), of making it, of hobknobbing, because of the classic images of movie stars and glamour and wealth. Think of it, everyone want a piece of hollywood, no matter how small, that goes for the Independant and Art films(more accessable maybe the dream seems closer), or the big budget blockbusters. It is both a hopeful reflection of our country, and a dreadful reflection of it.
Just some thoughts though
