About Me

I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

P is for Pulp Fiction

I adore Quentin Tarantino films.  My introduction was of course that classic Pulp Fiction.  I’ve sat in the McDonald’s Restaurant in St Germaine in Paris where Quentin wrote the Royale with Cheese segment, eating a, well... royale with cheese.  It was gross.

Tarantino films are in your face and full of black humour, so it was no surprise when the audience responded with laughter when Samuel L Jackson’s character accidentally shot the kid in the back of the car in the face.  Whoops.

Bruce Willis will always be my standout favourite actor in any film that he appears in.  I’m a die-hard Die Hard fan.  His role in Pulp Fiction was no exception.  In fact, aside from the “Zed’s dead, baby.  Zed’s dead.” line, I loved the entire conversation he has with his French girlfriend about her pot belly – well, ok, I liked her side of the conversation, because I also had/have a pot belly and she made it seem cool and sexy.

I recently saw Django Unchained.  Brilliant.  On par with Pulp Fiction I think.  And that’s saying something!

  1. Pulp Fiction is one of my top 5. Tarantino made nonlinear story telling in movies viable, and for that, he is one of the great film directors. I haven't seen Django yet, but I intend to soon.

    Travolta is my favorite in Pulp-gotta love Vincent Vega.

  2. I, too, am a Quentin Tarantino fan! I, too, laughed to the point of passing out at the accidental shooting.

  3. I remember seeing Jackie Brown on Christmas Day in. Vancouver (long story) and loving it. Yes, Tarantino is a film genius. As a mom, I do feel he can push it a bit far for my taste, but I can appreciate his brilliance. Great post.

    1. You know, I totally forgot Jackie Brown was a Tarantino film! He certainly does push the boundaries doesn't he. Enjoy the rest of the challenge!
