How Pulp Fiction Has Contributed to Pop Culture
Then the worker responds to ask what is happening, now comes the, "Say what again!". Acting as if the film was released last weekend, is the new movie with the new wave. Anywhere and everywhere will have this type of person, they even come in groups with no hint of shame whatsoever, and they aren't going anywhere. In this case, it's kind of acceptable since after more than twenty years have passed the movie is still close to our hearts being experience with friends and family so when we do see those type of people we just look, smile and remember. Don't believe me? Turn the TV on, and it is scheduled to show later in the evening or in-fact asked to purchase for rent or buy since even IMDB rates it so high.
This film exploits unrivaled facility of the film for reordering and temporal construction, and it breaks up real world's continuity of time. Again, out of reality's physical time, the film, Pulp Fiction, creates the abstract of the film time. The Pulp Fiction film explores the abstract’s time in the provocative, thoroughly enjoyable and accessible fashion. The film addresses the existing relationship between the popular culture, particularly, the collective memory and the cinema. The Pulp Fiction’s popular culture filmic allusions and references, which in turn either enrage or enthrall critics is much more a fun-house experience, a sheer cinematic spectacle of vibrant sounds and sights. Watching of the caper film raised the expectation of the audience, the expectation that wanted to witness a team of hardened criminals mastering intricate details of some "big score" fabulous schema, not lovebirds intending to rob a dinner and catch patrons "pants down" precisely, Pulp Fiction in the set-up for a popular culture employed various devices, including visual motifs and dialogue (Romney 29).
Coffee shop’s dialogue pervaded Pulp Fiction and indicated that the film had more of mundane aspects of criminal life thus, the film deals with empty or unimportant instants that are more conventional noirs, thrillers and crime stories (Tarantino 119). For instance, talking about character relationship, consider Jules and Vincent, while driving to work, chattered away just like anyone in the carpool would chatter. Vincent, who was back recently from an extended vacation, described what he called "little things"; the cultural differences that distinguished continental sensibility from American culture. The Pulp Fiction's section titled "Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace Wife" served as a complicating action of the film. Throughout this sequence, Tarantino adhered to dialogue, though in an intensified and accelerated fashion.
"Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace Wife" ended with Vincent and Mia agreeing not to inform Marsellus about anything. The episode of “The Gold Watch” in the Pulp Fiction film also contributed to the pop culture through the keen awareness of time. Throughout the Pulp Fiction, characters demonstrated keen awareness on the importance of time, that is, event’s ephemeral nature with great pleasure moments, and moments with excoriating pain (Romney 29). Popular culture practices demonstrate activities take place in the society in a particular time, and this makes Pulp Fiction distinctive because the narration of the film was matched with an unexpected acute appreciation of the ability of the cinema in different aspects of time. For instance, when the combination of the unappealing facial hair and bald head combination wasn’t laughed at, we slightly cringed when Travolta’s character, a spy, presents John Meyers’ bitter and strict colleague to be treated with a Royale with Cheese; which was also said to have him killed with (Indiana 62).
It’s not only John Travolta that tributes to one of the movies that made him but also another main character that also has shown tributes - - Ving Rhames - - when approved of Fabienne’s choice of breakfast in the film, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, when Jibby’s safe word being discovered; “Blueberry Pancakes”. Moving forward, yet another tribute and strong reference from an iconic Pulp Fiction character- Samuel L. Jackson, taking Xander Cage to a similar place to eat in a different movie xXx, Vincent and Jules eating breakfast after an exhausting stop-by to Jimmy, they ate at the Hawthorne Grill. Although the successful fan-made theory was made out to be true, it was, in fact, a fake diner called "Pann’s Restaurant.
Coyote, immediately after the incident Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam animatedly destroys the Monster wearing black suits and white shirts with two huge animated guns, the tribute is in plain sight to anyone who has seen Pulp Fiction by realizing its Sam L. Jackson’s and John Travolta’s characters (Romney 29). Season 3, 16th episode, Veronica Mars, even though the speech wasn’t used a detective investigates a self-hate crime, an imitation of the speech was instead used in a more pleasing and pleasant form by Kristen Bell. The audience was a factor in toning down the speech, so the speech was there in the same context and form but not exactly as Sam L. Jackson presented it. Various writers have been influenced massively by changing the methods used in their writing instead of a usual beginning, middle, and end which has caused enticement for viewers to see the entertainment making them occupied in interaction.
We can see writers, producers, and actors benefiting from more different and unpredictable styles of writing by seeing more TV and movies changing ways and not just individual productions. Pulp Fiction has played an extremely vital role in the current tv and film industries giving freedom to directors to create and express their imagination through their work and not hold back in any instance since film and TV is a form of art. Tarantino is a prime example of showing this art by deciding what he wanted to make with no care to anyone's opinion and prediction, we can see that it works by the name he has created for himself through his work and no other influence, the do what you want attitude is seen where he actually plays different characters in many of his movies.
