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. After the jump, check out a huge gallery of images and more. Read More »
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 »
This April in New York, Spoke Art is presenting a three day art show called Quentin vs. Coens, featuring art based on the films of The Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino.

Soon, we’ll have your exclusive first look at an AMAZING set of seven prints by Tim Doyle dramatizing each of Quentin Tarantino’s films but, first, you’ve got to check out this jaw-dropping poster by Max Dalton. It’s called Pulp Fiction Action Figure Collection and, after the jump, you’ll see the full image as well as detailed shots like the one above. Read More »
The following is to be read in a dramatic announcer voice: On an all new House M.D., House and his partner travel to a small, dank apartment and spoof one of the most famous scenes in Pulp Fiction in order to save a friend from certain death. House, All New, Tonight on Fox. End Commercial.
Actually, it was Monday night on Fox and while I’ve never been a fan of the repetitive, overly-dramatic but critically acclaimed medical drama, if more episodes were like this, I’d be more inclined to watch. Check out the clip after the jump. Read More »
