10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew
It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.

Matt Dillon was almost Butch.

Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide,

Annabella Sciorra, Emmy-Nominated ‘The Sopranos’ Actress, Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her
Annabella Sciorra, who received an Emmy nomination for her role on “The Sopranos,” has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in the early 1990s and sexually harassing her for years afterward. Her account comes from the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow, who contacted her for his initial story about Weinstein; she initially told Farrow that the disgraced former executive had never done anything inappropriate for fear of retribution.

“I was so scared. I was looking out the window of my living room, and I faced the water of the East River,” said Sciorra upon contacting Farrow again. “I really wanted to tell you. I was like, ‘This is the moment you’ve been waiting for your whole life.'” The actress said she “really, really panicked” when first speaking to Farrow and “just wanted to get off the phone.

Beauty vs Beast: Original Sinners

Jason from Mnpp here. It is October when a young man's fancy will turn to cable-knit cardigans and exquisitely plotted murder schemes, but it's more specific this week than the usual - tomorrow night the New York Film Festival is screening the premiere episode of David Fincher's Mindhunter series (which stars Jonathan Groff as an early FBI profiler) and then on Friday The Snowman (Tomas Alfredson's film starring Michael Fassbender as Detective Harry Hole - yes really - on the trail of a Frosty-fixated killer) comes out. And so what better time to transport "Beauty vs Beast" back to the wet streets of an anonymous city on the brink in Fincher's film Se7en...

Review: Interred with Their Bones—Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049"

  • MUBI
There’s a nagging question at the heart of Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049, and it’s to do with need. Why does Ryan Gosling’s Detective K need a robot wife (Ana de Armas), programmed to speak in a diaphanous lisp? Why does he need an apartment? What purpose is there for a robot to blend in? Everyone in his world can almost smell his oiled gears, his falseness. So why does he need the trappings of reality? Like Twin Peaks: The Return, Blade Runner 2049 has to interrogate its own incongruous existence so many years after the artifact that gave it life first entered the cultural bloodstream. Why does this film exist, beyond the potential box office? Why have writer Hampton Fancher and producer Ridley Scott gone back here? Who needs this? The film seems aware of itself as an automaton theatrical event. It watches itself; taking place behind glass,

The Lure

No jokes about fish and visitors please — Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s horror fantasy musical is indeed about delectable creatures from the deep, but these particular mythical misses have their own agenda, and woe to the man who trifles with their affections. What’s today’s catch? A Polish phantasmagoria seemingly teleported from the glitzy 1980s.

Biff Review: ‘Mermaids’ Captures a Joyous Rebirth

On first blush Ali Weinstein’s documentary Mermaids focuses its glimpse at the titular sea myth’s power towards the whimsical and fun. She takes us from the days of old at Florida’s Weeki Wachee Springs State Park (which is still in operation) to a contemporary trend of mer-lovers creating or commissioning their own tails for public expositions or some much needed private rest and relaxation. Vicki Smith relays fond memories from when she was a teenager performing underwater with an air hose for packed auditoriums. Rachel Smith (no relation) takes us through the backstage preparations before swimming within a Sacramento mermaid bar. Julz Owen shows how she manufactures her own fins. And Cookie de Jesus basks in the excitement of discovering she’s no longer the only “mermaid” in Harlem.

Everything we see is brimming with joyous wonder both on the faces of those wearing the tails and

Blade Runner’s forgotten replicants

Ryan Lambie Oct 5, 2017

Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner originally contained more artificial humans. Ryan looks at the replicants who never made it to the screen...

A pot boils on the stove, its cast-iron lid rattling from the steam. Dust catches the light in the sparsely-furnished farmhouse, which looks faded and old, like a weathered oil painting. A door opens; a tall, broad figure fills the frame, clad in a protective suit - the kind of outfit farmers always wear to shield themselves from the cruel elements. The figure enters, removing its mask to reveal a lined, middle-aged face.

The farmer glances around the room furtively,

An IMAX Experience Worthy of ‘Blade Runner’

Something I’ve stated before in pieces such as this is the rather distinct feeing of euphoria that comes from experiencing the classics on the big screen. The best ones have the capability to “transport” their audience back to the days of original release, granting new generations of audiences a taste of what past audience members felt and experienced back when. And then, every once in a while, there’s the experience that transcends what came before. For one night only – the night of Wednesday the 20th, to be precise – a rather small handful of IMAX theaters around the country, including Hollywood’s historic Tcl Chinese IMAX (where this “humble” cinephile ), ran what was advertised as a “one night only” IMAX projection of the “Final Cut” edit of Sir Ridley Scott’s seminal Blade Runner, both as a tribute to the film on its 35th anniversary and to give the

Beauty vs Beast: Dreaming of Electric Sheep

Jason from Mnpp here... or am I? Is this me? Am I here? So many existential questions here on the eve of the release of Blade Runner 2049 this weekend and all I have is a "Beauty vs Beast" poll to face them down with. Y'all gotta help me suss it out! Are we a Deckard (Harrison Ford) or are we a Pris (Daryl Hannah)? And is this the version of life with the voiceover and the unicorns or isn't it? I am so confused...

Previously Last week we wished David Lynch's Eraserhead a happy 40th birthday, and in a delightfully close contest you came down on the side of the pulsating little baby pod thing - a testament to a special effect that Lynch himself steadfastly refuses to label as such, I'd say. Said Nick T:

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying
Reviews of director Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049” are flooding in, and they are (almost) all glowing.

The follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic “Blade Runner” has earned an impressive 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with many critics claiming that “2049” may even surpass the original. Variety‘s Peter Debruge raves that the film “delves deep into the existential concerns suggested by the earlier film, as screenwriters Hampton Fancher (who also co-wrote the original) and Michael Green raise evocative questions about human-android relations and the nuances that will one day be used to tell them apart.”

Check out what the critics are saying before the movie hits theaters Oct. 6:

Variety‘s Peter Debruge:

“Whereas it took five different versions for Ridley Scott to satisfyingly answer the question raised by Philip K. Dick’s speculative-fiction novel, ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ (four of which suggest the director himself didn’t quite recognize what was most fascinating

10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade Runner

10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade Runner10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade RunnerKurt Anthony9/13/2017 9:16:00 Am

Thirty-five years ago, from Ridley Scott, director of Alien, came Blade Runner – a chilling, bold, mesmerizing, and futuristic detective thriller.

Adapted from Philip K. Dick’s visionary novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Blade Runner was released in theatres on June 25, 1982 and has since earned the title of one of the best science fiction films of all time.

Despite the film’s estimated budget of $28M, Blade Runner was not an instant success. The complex plot and slow pacing resulted in low box office numbers, but the dystopian sci-fi classic eventually garnered a cult following and became a leading example of the neo-noir genre.

While we await the highly anticipated release of Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel, journey with us to the savage world of the year 2019 as
