Down the movie lane..


Vincent Vega,a gangster, takes his boss' (Marcelles Wallace) wife Mia Wallace to a restaurant at his boss' order. He is scared as hell especially since he knows that Marcelles Wallace has thrown a guy (Antwon Rockamora a.k.a Tony Rocky hara, if you really care) from the 6th floor of a building because he gave Mia a foot massage. (The nigger fell through the glass house and developed a speach impediment, even if you don't really care!)

Mia Wallace: Gives him inviting looks as she tastes the cherry (that comes with the $5 milk shake) still holding it on to her equally red lips.
Vincent Vega: Looks at her as he takes a puff and quickly looks aside.
Mia Wallace: Now she is sipping her milkshake with her eyes still fixed to him.
Vincent Wallace: Tries to avoid her eyes and pretends to be in deep thought, rubs his chin trying to get busy with something. But all he could think of was to take a sip of his coke.

Mia Wallace: (Now, again tastes the cherry giving him suggestive looks. Finally she breaks the silence) Don’t you hate that?
Vincent Vega: Hate what?
Mia Wallace: The uncomfortable silences? (smiles)
Vincent Vega (Looks confused?). Why would you feel it’s necessary to yak about BULL SHIT…. only to feel comfortable?

Good point! I wonder why that is?

When I revisited Pulp Fiction recently......

surprises, surprises!!! I saw the movie yesterday.too good. QT amazes me. By the way, did u notice that the conversation between Samuel Jackson and Travolta on way to a murder was exactly the same kind as in aayudha ezuthu?? Maddy and the other guy.
If u really care :Tonk rocky horror and the 4th floor of the building
And also uncomfortable silences too good. I love Uma Thurman. Have u seen Kill Bill?
The movie just amazed me...

Don't tell me that you watched it for the first time!

Kill Bill was good, especially the sword fight with the crazy 88 in the blue background. But I liked part 2 better. Simply because it was such a contrast from the first one! (Not that I hated the first one!). The first one fast paced with long and bloody fight sequences, while the second one was slower, almost miniscule fight sequences and more dialogue oriented

But of all the QT movies (that I have seen) I loved Pulp Fiction the best. Simply because the movie was full of nothing, but still was interesting till the very end! QT has his own funny and violent way of story-telling! After all who else could have thought of the way to get Butch (Bruce willis) of Marcellus Wallace's hook! Oh God! I couldn't take it!

And that Fox Force 5 joke by Mia Wallace...Poor Vincent!(she is my love, not yours by the way!).

About the connection to Ayutha Ezhuthu, I didn't really think of it as a relationship. If it was an inspiration, IMHO, it was badly implemented. The scene I liked the best in PF was the murder of Bret. What a dialogue delivery by Sam. Jack!

Keep watching, keep visiting!

Yeah. I know. too good. most of mani ratnam's film are parodies of Quentin Tarantino. The alaipayuthe sequence, the last scene from Ayudha ezuthu. Lots of stuff are from QT. But comical travesties.

still, he is the only guy who is kinda ok in current tamil movie scene.

IMO(not so humble) :) again jus kidding..

What is the Alaipayuthey sequence you are talking about?
