Quentin Tarantino

Updated on February 12, 2015

My first moment with Tarantino

Pulp Fiction

I first heard about Quentin Tarantino after Pulp Fiction reached the Oscars. I remember the award show, but the accolades did not interest me. I never thought about seeing Pulp Fiction, knew nothing about the movie, and truly could care less. I was in business with my husband, and had little time for theatrical adventures. TV is my background music of choice, so goes life.

Then in the latter part of '98, I happened to be doing dishes and overheard Neil Diamond's, "Girl" song playing in the background. That was cool. Then, all of a sudden I heard some guy that sounded a lot like John Travolta scream out, "F--- ME!," several times, but not in the Biblical sense.

Now I was really intrigued, and as I walked into the TV room my eyes caught the sight of John Travolta stabbing Uma Thurman in the heart with a needle, who woke up out of an OD state to say, "Something."

My jaw dropped, and there went the hook. This was not just some movie . . . it was really some movie. After that, I waited for the movie to air again so I could see it front to back. And saw it, I did. Again, and again. Too complex to see just once.

Pulp Fiction has an all star cast and plots that twist one after another with each one leading to a crescendo. Fantastic script(s). Great score, great theme, great cult masterpiece. The movie was so good, I recommended it to my husband who hates everything. He loved it so much he had to see it more than once, too.

Quentin Tarantino: Nobody Does It Better . . .

Quentin Terantino has a way of grabbing attention and tempting the psyche through well written stories with plots that have more twists and turns than a ride to Haleakala. Once you are on the road you hold your breath, and before you know it, you realize you've been on the ride of your life without ever leaving your seat.

      Quentin Tarantino was not on my radar either, for the longest time. Finally my son dragged me kicking and screaming into "Kill Bill," and I couldn't believe someone actually directed and produced this stuff. I have yet to see "Pulp Fiction," (I'm probably the only person in the world who hasn't) but I figure if I can stop writing for a couple hours, I'll get to it. Thanks for sharing.

      "Pulp Fiction" really is one of the greatest movies ever made. Tarantino will go down in history as one of the great film makers of all time.
