Worst Scene in Pulp


#101

Yeah I agree with you…

you know,here ALL movies(from America,France,or other…)are dubbed…i dont’ know why…maybe because italian people AREN’T able to understand english ::slight_smile:

but I do!

so I always watch movies in english!

I think Pulp it’s 10 times better in english than in italian…



eheh…of course,Rome is beautiful! ;D


#102

I’m curious: how does the ‘english motherfucker do you speak it’ go in Italian?



is it ‘italian motherfucker do you speak it’ (only then in italian?) or do they avoid that by letting jules say something completly different?


#103

it’s : "LA MIA LINGUA,FIGLIO DI PUTTANA,TU LA SAI PARLARE?"

that is in english : “MY LANGUAGE,MOTHERFUCKER,DO YOU SPEAK IT?”…it’s almost the same but NOT the same… :-/


#104

nicely done…for a dub…well Italian sounds cool anyway…not that it should replace english in an american movie…but still better than german dubbing…they also tend to make a whole different dialogue…


#105

Well the results are in and it looks like most people hated the cab scene. Personally the only scene I really didn’tlike is the whole entiment sequnce with Butch & his sexy girlfriend.



Maybe is it was just her by herself it could have been better.





PULP DOG

I agree - the entire Butch and Fabian sequence could have been cut way the hell down. I was staring at the screen like, "What the fuck? Get on with it already!"



I watched the movie for the first time just an hour ago. Is it wrong that I kind of enjoyed Reservoir Dogs more than Pulp Fiction? Maybe it’s because RD wasn’t as built-up for me as PF was. Also, so many directors and so many movies have ripped off PF, so seeing the one that started it all is going to be something of a letdown. I loved the end, though, with Jules taking zero shit from Pumpkin and Honey Bunny. That scene was tense as all get-out.



I don’t know - I just think Kill Bill had more of an impact on me than PF did.


#107

kill bill was my first QT movie and i was enjoying it the whole way through. but here’s what i like about RD and PF. when i first saw these movies, afterwards i said to myself ‘not bad’ but not exactly the best either. but after some time of letting it sink it i was like wow those are some good movies.


#108

PERSONALLY FOR ME THE WORST SCENE IS WHEN VINCE GETS SHOT :stuck_out_tongue:



CUZ WUT A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE…TAKIN A NICE RELAXIN SHIT AND THEN BAM U GET FUCKED THA HELL UP ALL IN DA STOMACH…FUCK MAN!!! THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE >:(



ANOTHER SCENE THAT IS HORRIBLE IS WHEN BUTCH AND HIS LADY ARE LAYING THERE AND SHE SAYS “WILL YOU GIVE ME ORAL PLEASURE?” I JUS THINK THAT THAT WUZ COMPLETELY POINTLESS!!! ::slight_smile: AND BORING …WASTED 5 SEC.S OF MY LIFE! :’(

WELL THANX FOR LETTIN ME PUT IN MY TWO CENTS

Whats so bad about the oral pleasure scene? Its not even long (lkie you said, only 5 seconds of your life wasted) Its just showing that Butch loves Fabby so much that he’s willing to eat her pussy before she gives him head. She comes first, he comes second.


#110

WELL…TO ME IT’S A POINTLESS SCENE >:(

CUZ LATA HE GETS PIZZED AT THA BITCH AND IT DON’T EVEN MATTER WHO GOES FIRS AS LONG AS WE ALL GET OURS … RIGHT? ;D

BUT SERIOUSLY I JUS HAV A SERIOUS ANNOYANCE WIT THA FACT THAT THAT SHIT HAPPENED AROUND ALL THA KILLIN AND RUNNIN AND FEAR… AM I RIGHT…NOW I KNOW IT MIGHT NOT SIT TIGHT WIT ALL YALL BUT THATS JUS TOO GOD DAMN BAD. ITS MY OPINION AND I’LL CHOOSE HOW TO SAY IT ANY WAY I GOD DAMN FEELL…PHEW

THAT FELT GOOD TO GET OFF MY SHOULDERS

(J/K)

#111

Wow, people who type in all caps should be shot.



Anyway, I think the Butch and Fabian (or Fabienne, whatever) just needed to be trimmed. It goes nowhere for too long - QT could have halved the time and we would have gotten the message that Butch loves Fabian and that she forgot to take the watch.

So is “figlo di puttana” literally motherfucker or does it mean something else in Italian but carry the same degree of insult?



The scene that bores me the most is the cab scene. The first time I watched it, I didn’t really think it was boring and all 'cause when you watch it the first few times, you’re trying to absorb everything in, as much as possible. To make sense of it all. But now, it can be summarize in 4 words: “Butch killed the boxer.”


#114

Everyone is talking ass about the cab scene / shower scene etc. etc. Those parts are there to make the whole enterprise more human, it adds depth to a one-liner-filled movie. The cab scene actually has some purpose too, it shows a glimpse of Reb Braddock’s original short movie Curdled, which is recreated later in 1996 into a full-length with the aid of Quentin himself, and that’s a cool movie no-one here has probably seen. A co-worker of mine, who is a Tarantinomaniac, even hasn’t seen it, and that’s a crying shame. You people here are missing out on a great movie just because it didn’t get media attention. I highly recommend it.



I hate the “I don’t like this / that” jive. You are talking about the greatest director/screenwiter/producer/anything-else-I-can’t-think-of-right-now of all time!! Where’s your Pulp Fiction?

I thought only ostriches have brains smaller than their eye. Why can’t we not like certain scenes in the movie? Most of us love the whole film in its entirety but after watching it for the bajillionth time, certain scenes just stuck out like a sore thumb while we would just pop in the DVD to specifically watch the other scenes.

I get your point but I don’t like the “I would do that and that over…” talk, kind of like “I want to add some more blue to the Mona Lisa”. It is what it is, that’s all, and this is still a forum to me, just my 2 cents ;).



And me, like an ostrich, having brains smaller than my eye; It still makes me smarter than a starfish.

Aight, sorry bout that. We cool?

"Figlio di puttana" means "son of a bitch".

Worst scene-Shower scene w/ Butch and Fabienne.



It should have gone more like:



Cab scene/escape



Oral Pleasure/“the gangsters will be coming for us won’t they” scene…cut to next morning…



Butch is looking for his watch then freaks the fuck out…



END of Apartment scene…
