Though they’re generally relegated to sci-fi movies, Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction was made for an infographic. The film’s innovative structure, taking what could have been a straight forward movie but chopping it up and putting it into a different order, was the blue print for a whole generation of up and coming filmmakers. It showed how even narrative placement can give a film unique surprises and kinetic energy.
And yes, after just a few viewings we can easily work out what happened first, second, third, etc. That doesn’t change the fact that seeing the whole thing beautifully illustrated is a delight. After the jump, check out the entirety of Pulp Fiction, in chronological order, as a flow chart. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino has been pretty vocal that many of his films are set in the same universe. Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction is the documented brother of Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs. Mr. White in Reservoir Dogs possibly worked with Alabama from True Romance. Brands such as Big Kahuna Burger and Red Apple Cigarettes appear in multiple films, the list goes on an on. A more recent development was when Tarantino said that Sgt. Donny Donowitz, the Bear Jew of Inglourious Basterds, was the father of Lee Donowitz, the sleazy movie producer of True Romance.
And that got one person thinking. If all these movies take place in the same universe, that means World War II ended how it ended in Inglourious Basterds and everyone would know about it. Which opens up a huge can of worms. Read the very entertaining theory below. Read More »
Short of putting a Blu-ray on your shelf or a poster on your wall, quoting a movie in conversation is one of the best ways to pay tribute to movies you love. We’ve all dropped a quote from a movie into casual conversation and then gotten a nod of recognition from someone who is in on the joke. What’s cool about these posters by designer Jerod Gibson is that it takes those quotes and puts them on a pedestal, making the words the stars of iconic films like the original Star Wars Trilogy, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Ghostbusters.

This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site. We posted part one here.
After the jump you will find part two of our preview, which includes /Film favorite Tom Whalen‘s tribute to The Shining, Bruce White‘s Ghostbusters-inspired black velvet painting, Eric Braddock‘s awesome One-Eyed Willie Goonies illustration, and more. So what are you waiting for?

It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction is one profane work of art, but have you ever wondered exactly how profane? YouTube user TheCussingChannel has, and they’ve put together a supercut of every curse word in the film — and nothing else. You’ll find no lingering over elegant lines of dialogue or gorgeous camerawork here, but you will hear just about every bad word you can think of. It may not be quite as poetic as the 100 Greatest Movie Threats of All Time or the 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time, but the video’s oddly mesmerizing all the same. Watch the (obviously) NSFW video after the jump.

After edging around the show for a long time I’ve finally come on board as a Community fan in a big way. The show’s two seasons have had very few whiffs (last week’s episode being a sad exception) and the cast of misfits stuck in community college (‘stuck’ in an increasingly willful fashion) has turned into a great comic ensemble.
Tonight’s episode sees the cast acting out a big Pulp Fiction riff, and while that sort of thing might be tedious from most shows, with Community it could well turn out to be both very funny and a way to further explore the bonds between the unlikely group. We’ve got a few photos from the show after the break, plus a video clip teasing the story. Read More »
