What's Inside The Briefcase?
I've only seen it once before on VHS years ago. I vividly remember renting a copy at Star Video on Washington Blvd in Pasadena, watching it and there were several lasting moments in the movie -- Travolta and Thurman dancing, for one. The kids had seen a couple other Tarantino flicks (like Reservoir Dogs and Death Proof) but Pulp Fiction is probably a bit over the top for them. Maybe in couple years, I'll reconsider. Anyway, tonight was a night I decided I was going to buy a Blue Ray copy of Pulp Fiction and watch it from start to finish. My (second) first impression is that this movie has a really excellent soundtrack -- from Misirlou to Surf Rider to Son of A Preacher Man. In fact, as soon as the movie ended, I ordered the soundtrack on CD. Except, I had completely forgotten that I have all the tracks on mp3; yeah, it's been that long since I really paid attention to this movie. Also, I don't ever remember that this one has an all-star cast -- literally Kietel, Willis, Walken, etc. But what I don't remember at all is that the contents of the briefcase was never known to this day. Of course, that's what makes Tarantino a great artist.
