    Pulp Fiction

    In the first seconds of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, 2 definitions of “pulp” are shown on the screen. “1. A soft, moist, shapeless mass of matter. 2. A magazine or book containing lurid subject matter and being characteristically printed on rough, unfinished paper,” and both describe the movie well. The movie is shapeless, being told non-linearly, and is a mass of pop culture references and imitation of movie genres. The movie is stylistically the latter definition by being rough around the edges through simple, low budget production, while being littered with adult themes and crass humour. However, the film uses it's identity as “pulp” in the best way, transforming crass jokes and genre imitation into a statement on film itself. Though the film consists of an erratic nonlinear narrative, there are 3 protagonists, each given character arcs through their own vignette. The first protagonist is Butch Coolidge, a dead-end boxer being hunted by the gang boss Marsellus Wallace. Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield, two of Marsellus's hitmen are the second and third protagonists.

    It is impossible to think of a list of great films without including Pulp Fiction (1994). With its striking cinematography and its non-scored soundtrack, Pulp Fiction was a revolutionary motion picture because it popularized non-linear storytelling in film, and borrowed elements from postmodernism, genre films, and arthouse films, and blended them into something completely unique to Tarantino’s personal style (Berg, 2006). From many influences of foreign and niche films, Pulp Fiction was born,…

    Stone states that clichés of violence are typically associated with masculinity and that violence is used to instill fear. In many movies, violence is usually only used to instill fear. However, Tarantino’s use of violence does not follow the typical pattern, and he deheroicizes some violence in his movies. In Pulp Fiction, the use of violence is very casual in some scenes. This can also lessen the effect on the audience, allowing them to better cope with intense scenes. For example, after Jules…

    increase with thicker basis weights. (See Exhibit 1 for material costs associated with each product, or grade.) Thus, unit level (or volume-related) drivers made sense for applying certain types of overhead to products. However, other important costs were incurred without respect to volume. For example, grade changes induce instabilities into the manufacturing process that result in scrap until the process resumes stability. On average, production engineers estimate that approximately one-half…

    Pulps magazines were printed on paper made out of wood-pulp. They were made cheaply and sold cheaply (Ashley). To start off the Pulps time period the United States legalized segregation in 1896 (Mays). In 1898 the U.S. occupied Cuba during the Spanish-American War and gained Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines as territories by the Treaty of Paris.
