Jack Rabbit Slim’s Further proving that Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction take place in the same universe, both movies share the restaurant Jack Rabbit Slim’s. The diner is displayed in its full glory in Pulp Fiction — it’s where Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace talk about Amsterdam and feet.
Two men named Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield, wearing suits, are discussing hash bars in Amsterdam, and the cultural differences between America and Europe. After parking, the men retrieve pistols from the trunk, and Jules mentions they should have shotguns.
The diner held up by Pumpkin and Honey-Bunny (Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer) was the Hawthorne Grill, 13763 Hawthorne Boulevard at 137th Street, Hawthorne, south of Los Angeles Airport.
I always thought the producers should have built a real Jack Rabbit Slim’s restaurant after the movie became so successful, but, alas, they never did.
The Jack Rabbit Slim sequence in Pulp fiction was actually filmed at the Famous Mel’s. In the film, Mia (Uma Thurman) takes Vincent (Travolta) to the restaurant . A few restaurants , bars and bands across the world have since adopted the name.
The prevailing theory is that the briefcase is Marcellus Wallace’s soul and that he sold it to the Devil in exchange for his prominence and success as a gangster. The evidence? The scar on the back of his head, which is clearly visible throughout most of the film, is where his soul was taken from.
2, both starring Uma Thurman. Although the Kill Bill films are the only Tarantino films directly connected, there’s a scene in Pulp Fiction with Uma Thurman’s character that seems to predict a part of the Kill Bill duology.
So basically when the characters of Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction , when they go to the movies, Kill Bill is what they go to see. The Realer Than Real World Universe includes: Reservoir Dogs , True Romance, Pulp Fiction , Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, and The Hateful Eight.
Meanwhile Butch has since betrayed Marsellus, who vows to kill him. While Marsellus and Vincent are staking out Butch’s apartment, Marsellus leaves to get them some coffee and Vincent goes into the bathroom. Seconds go by, a pair of Pop-Tarts jump out of the toaster and Butch shoots Vincent in the chest, killing him.
The lesson I take away from Pulp Fiction is simply “Do what’s right.” On Butch’s story he’s asked to throw a fight for a huge amount of money from Marcellus Wallace. He does what’s right and not only wins the fight but he accidentally kills his opponent.
It is violent, and it does have some scenes that are inappropriate – however, the dialogues are insanely creative and thoughtful. It’s a great movie for a mature audience.
Of note is the fact that Mia orders a “Durward Kirby” burger from the Jack Rabbit Slims menu, which doesn’t appear on the prop itself. She also orders a Five Dollar shake, while Vincent orders the “Douglas Sirk” steak, named after the famous filmmaker and a vanilla coke.
Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.
Pulp Fiction is regarded as one of the most influential films of all time. In terms of Tarantino’s movies, it’s certainly the OK Computer of his filmography, a true magnum opus. Overall, Pulp Fiction is a timeless masterpiece of cinema that still holds up in 2019, over two decades since it’s release.
