Pulp Fiction

Clearly we are entering into an Animaniacs renaissance. Not soon after the show being added to Netflix, the announcement that a Yakko (Rob Paulsen,) Wakko (Jess Harnell,) and, Tress MacNeille (the sister Dot) would be going on tour to perform the music from the classic cartoon, and now? This hidden little gem from SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival, is making the rounds again.

Rob Paulsen (Pinky) and Maurice LaMarche (The Brain) run through an iconic scene from Quentin tarantino’s Pulp Fiction  with Pinky as Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson,) and The Brain as Vincent Vega (John Travolta) naturally. Improving it to no end. (more…)

It seems that these days, everyone has an opinion on everything – or more accurately: people have had opinions for a long time, but now the internet bombards us with everyone’s opinion on everything.  There is a select group of people in the world of entertainment, however, that most would agree have actually earned the right to have their opinions carry the actual weight that most of us believe our ideas should.  I think most would agree that Quentin Tarantino – the seminal writer/director behind such pop-culture mega-hits as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, Inglorious Basterds, and so much more – would fall into that category.  He recently opened up about his feelings on the recent influx of superhero movies – read on to hear his thoughts!

In-jokes are all the rage these days, a fun way to acknowledge that your cast has a life outside the movie you are presently seeing them in, and probably few actors lend themselves to the in-joke better than Samuel L. Jackson. The actor has had roles big and small in a great many of the most iconic movies of the last 20 years, but perhaps none are more known, or quotable, than Pulp Fiction. It would not be out of the question to say that the Quentin Tarantino movie made Jackson a star, and it did so with one monologue in particular. Jackson’s new movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, paid tribute to it one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, and the film’s directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, recently explained how and why they decided to do it. Spoilers follow. (more…)

In the hustle and bustle of the modern world, it is hard to keep up on all the crazy pop-culture one-liners your friends pop off in a cafe before a bank job or moments after accidentally shooting your backseat passenger in the face … Luckily College Humor has prepared a handy little video reference of many (nearly all) of Quentin Taratino‘s many pop-culture references. True RomanceReservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, hell even Death Proof and his short from Four Rooms make the cut. So next time you are facing off with a Nazi Commandant and you find yourself searching for a classic Charlie Chaplin based burn, hopefully the following will help. (more…)

Compilations, montages, supercuts. Whatever you want to call them, lately, they’re everywhere. I like calling ’em supercuts. It’s fun to say. Supercuts. Suuuppeeerrcuts. See?

Anyway, supercuts are videos comprised of only one thing from either movies, television, video games or cartoons repeated over and over and over again. There are Star Wars supercuts, My Little Pony supercuts, Game of Thrones supercuts, Quentin Tarantino supercuts, and even a supercut focusing on the “Spielberg Face.” Basically, if some savvy video editor starts to notice recurring cliches, lines, or even camera shots they’re going to edit ’em all together into one massive supercut.

Here we’ve got a superb collection of 25 supercuts spanning all kinds of things. Check ’em out and let us know which is your favorite! I know we haven’t included every excellent supercut so if you’ve got a favorite we missed share it in the comments below and help us make this an ultimate collection.

Every Single Fucking Dude from The Big Lebowski [TannerStraus]

He’s just, “the Dude,” y’know? What an enviable title, who wouldn’t want to be known by one and all as, “the Dude”? This style of supercut is pretty common, an edit of one word or phrase repeated again and again, but there’s something about hearing “Dude” continually repeated I find calming. It’s good for my zen.

The Real Samuel L. Jackson iPhone Ad

By now we’ve all seen Samuel L. Jackson making gespatcho (not hot-spatcho) on date night with the help of his trusty iPhone assistant Siri (hey, at least he doesn’t need his cell phone to help him identify rain or be quirky). The ad is, to say the least, contrary to the way most of us envision Mr. Jackson while he’s at home — unarmed and less shouty and expletive laden than he typically is on the big screen — because, after-all, every actor is exactly the same in real life as they are when they’re acting.

Luckily, the folks from Slackstory felt the need to fix this egregious error and show us the “real” Sam Jackson Siri ad.

Warning: stay the fuck away from this video if you are offended by cursing.
