And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee Pulp Fiction review
So once again I am reviewing another Quentin Tarantino flick. This time it's the awesome Pulp Fiction, let's take a look at this awesome film.
So like Reservoir Dogs the plot is simple and easy to get. It's told from different perspectives so let's take a look at one of the stories. The first is about a couple known as Honey Bunny and Pumpkin, they are talking about robbing banks and how easy it is to rob them. They want something different, so they rob a diner they are eating in and cue one of the most epic opening credit scenes in the history of opening credit scenes.
The next story follows two low paid hitmen, Vincent Vega and Jules. They go to an apartment block, but on the way they talk about Amsterdam and how legal the marijuana is over there. They then start talking about McDonald's and how Paris calls a quarter pounder with cheese a royale with cheese. Anyway, they arrive at the apartment block and discuss their business partner Marcellus Wallace. Now this scene coming up is one of the most famous scenes in cinema, the quoting of Ezekiel 25:17. Now you all know the words say it with me ready, ahem: The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee. It's probably best saying it like Samuel L. Jackson, but that's just me.
Next we see a guy named Butch, who is a boxer trying to win his next round. He accepts an offer from Marcellus Wallace and leaves. He has his fight and something happens causing to him to go on the run, a flashback reveals that his father had given him an expensive gold watch which he hid "up his ass" anyway he misplaces the gold watch and goes on a hunt coming a cross Marcellus Wallace and running him over and taking refuge in a guitar/music store, the guy holds the two at gun point saying that Zed is on his way, Zed arrives and awakes the gimp and proceeds to have sex with Marcellus Wallace.
We then arrive back with Jules and Vincent, who go to see a good friend Jimmy, after shooting their friend Marvin in the face Jimmy calls Winston Wolf a fixer who fixes problems (if your from the UK you'd have probably seen him on the direct line adverts) so anyway the problem gets solved and Jules and Vincent head to a diner, the diner where Honey Bunny and Pumpkin are planning to rob the diner, and then we cut to the start of the film, they rob the diner but then change their mind after Jules shows what's in a briefcase they have collected, they leave as do Vincent and Jules, with Jules quitting his life of crime.
And that was Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, this is probably one of the best Tarantino movies I have seen in a long time as is Reservoir Dogs, the whole film is shot perfectly and the whole storylines are amazing, as is the script I mean come on who can't quote the famous Ezekiel 25:17 line, I even know that word from word, anyway I would give this film 10/10 definitely give this film a go otherwise if you don't I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger, ha ha sorry couldn't help my self.
