Pulp Fiction Parodies
Any movie that's as much of a cultural phenomenon as "Pulp Fiction" is bound to have an unlimited supply of parodies, so there's really no way I could possibly list each and every single one of them. Nevertheless, below I have listed a few links to my personal favorites.
Pulp Phantom- Originally from Pulpphantom.com (which has vanished), this is a great mixture of Star Wars and Pulp Fiction. It was one of the first parodies I had ever seen of Pulp Fiction.
"The Simpsons" Royal With Cheese Parody- This is a scene from "The Simpsons" parodying the popular royal with cheese conversation between Vincent and Jules.
"The Simpsons" 22 Short Films About Springfield- This is a link to http://ietv.co.uk/, it's a full episode of "The Simpsons" but it contains a really cool parody of the "Gold Watch" story.
"Pulp Fiction" In 30 Seconds, Re-enacted By Bunnies- Visit www.angryalien.com for more great Bunny movies like this one.
Family Guy's Pulp Fiction Reference- Family Guy's, Peter Griffin, remembers back when he was Uma Thurman's "eye wrangler" on the set of "Pulp Fiction".
WrestleMania "Pulp Fiction" Parody- Because WrestleMania 21 was to take place in Los Angeles California in 2005, the TV ad's for it were spoofs of various scenes from famous films of the past, including: "Taxi Driver", "When Harry Met Sally", "Forrest Gump", "Basic Instincts", and many more. Each scene parodied was acted out and performed by Wrestlers of the company. The particular scene, spoofing "Pulp Fiction" features Eddie Guerrero and Booker T. taking on the roles of Vincent Vega and Jules Winfield.
This last video is a very funny bit from MAD TV mixing the two biggest films of 1994, "Pulp Fiction" and "Forrest Gump". This was made during the hight of the films popularity.
Pulp Fiction Action Figures!
Pulp Fiction : The Facts (an original documentary)
This documentary is a making of feature, but it also features interviews with the cast and crew. Some interviews are recent, but some are from over 10 years ago. It starts out by interviewing Quentin Tarantino, along with Producer Lawrence Bender. They tell the story about how Tarantino started out. It even shows footage from Tarantino's first film "Reservoir Dogs." Most of the stars are interviewed, and it even covers topics in the film, such as how Tarantino made three stories come together as one, how the film was conceived by audiences, and even a quick segment about Tarantino's view on violence.
To top it all off, there is some behind the scenes footage, mainly of the part where Butch hits Marcellus with his car. At the end of the documentary, there is footage of the Cannes Film festival, and there is also information about the awards that Pulp Fiction won and was nominated for.
This was definitely worth watching. Anyone who enjoyed Pulp Fiction, or likes Quentin Tarantino should see this. It is only half an hour long, and in that half hour, the viewer gets just about all the information they could want, without being overloaded or bored.
The rape scene set to The Knack's "My Sharona"
Okay, this is really cool.
When Quentin Tarantino was first making "Pulp Fiction", his original intent was to have the song "My Sharona" by the Knack playing during the rape scene with Marsellus Wallace. Unfortunately though the rights for the song had already been licensed to another film, "Reality Bites". So it was replaced with "Comanche" by The Revels.
Below is the link to a fan made video of the rape scene with "My Sharona" dubbed perfectly over it so that we may finally get to see the scene as Tarantino had originally planned it.
Siskel & Ebert Special - Pulp FACTion: The Tarantino Generation
The phenomenon of 1994's "Pulp Fiction" was so large and had such an impact on film when it arrived on the scene that even the two most popular American critics in America, Siskel & Ebert (the thumbs up, thumbs down guys) were so enthralled by it that they saw fit to dedicate an entire episode of their show "At The Movies" to it and it's director, Quentin Tarantino.
Below I've included the episode -- which has been separated into two parts -- along with Siskel & Eberts initital review of the film.
