The Pulp Fiction Movie Page
Tarantino's second movie is 1994's Pulp Fiction. It stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman. The movie title is a reference to the early 20th century book genre "pulp fiction" known for its cheap, pulpy paper pages and underworld topics such as: gangsters, violence, drugs, and overtly sexual (for the time) situations. Probably the most famous writers from this genre were Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

The Pulp Fiction Script
Roger Avary wrote the first element of what would become the Pulp Fiction screenplay in the fall of 1990. Tarantino later completed the script in 1992 while living in Amsterdam.
Who was Brett Anyway?
About the only thing that sticks with me as terribly incongruous about Pulp Fiction is wondering what exactly were Brett and his buddies doing with the apparently very valuable property of Marsellus Wallace. They come across like a bunch of not terribly competent college kids, way out of MW's league.
So what was he doing having Brett and his buddies even working for him in the first place not to mention holding that briefcase?

Pulp Faction: The Tarantino Generation
After kind of misunderstanding QT's first movie Reservoir Dogs as an "exercise in style", Chicago-based PBS film review legends Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert suddenly compare Mr. Tarantino to Orson Welles, Richard Hitchcock, Spike Lee, and Martin Scorsese. Wow. Two thumbs up!

Mia Wallace's near fatal mistake
Earlier in the movie, Eric Stoltz's character asks "I'm all out of balloons, is a baggie okay?"
Now I am no drug expert but am I to infer that heroin is supposed to go into a balloon and cocaine into a baggie? And Mia Wallace thought that was cocaine and that's why she overdosed?
A friend of mine who knows a lot more about drugs than I do said that's not true, but what do you guys think?
What is "Real" Pulp Fiction?
The term "pulp fiction" refers to a literary genre used to describe magazines printed on cheap "pulp" paper in the first half of the 20th century.
Before the days of TV, pulps were how young adults learned about popular culture and the criminal underworld. Stories were often grossly exaggerated and explicit for the times. It is this energy of the genre that Tarantino is trying to exhibit in the film Pulp Fiction, the same way he exhibits his love for the film genre grindhouse in the 2007 film of the same name (also shown separately as Death Proof).
The Inspiration For Pulp Fiction
Mr. Tarantino explains how he came up with the ideas for his best known work.

Pulp Fiction's filming locations 25 years later
"On a balmy September afternoon in Atwater Village, an art department crew takes measurements at an automotive shop at the corner of Fletcher Drive and Atwater Avenue. It’s a familiar scene for production designer David Wasco, set decorator Sandy Reynolds-Wasco, and location manager Bob Craft as they observe from a blue picnic table across the street at Fosters Freeze."

Multiple Pricks Error in Pulp Fiction?
The girl [Honey Bunny] in the robbery says: "any of you fucking pricks move, and I'll execute every mother fucking last one of you"- at the start of the movie.
But at the end of the movie when the scene is revisited from Vincent and Jules' point of view, she says, "any of you fucking pricks move, and I'll execute everyone of you mother fuckers".
Either she improvised the line, messed up the line, or it was intentional.
