104: “I’m Gonna Get Medieval On Your Ass” – Pulp Fiction
McDonalds, TV pilots, Elvis, and foot massages – just the usual topics of conversation between gangsters, drug users, hitmen, and criminals, at least in Quentin Tarantino’s world. The release of the writer/director’s heavily-lauded PULP FICTION in 1994 was a groundbreaking moment for both Tarantino and movies, and its pop culture-obsessed characters and narrative-jumbling structure influenced the next decade or so of cinema (for better or worse).
Do Pulp Fiction’s accolades remain as bright and shiny as whatever’s in that briefcase? Or are we right in striking down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger? Join us for an expletive-filled adventure back to the ’90s – seriously, make the kiddos cover their ears for this one.
This is Part 2 of our Tarantino-thon! Listen to Part 1 where we revisited NATURAL BORN KILLERS and RESERVOIR DOGS here: https://themfp.org/wwwy-103-naturalbornkillers/

48: “Put Me Back In! Put Me Back In!” – Look Who’s Talking
Our Summer Bruce Willis trilogy – Bruce Willogy, if you will – comes to a close as we return to the womb and the year 1989 to reexamine Amy Heckerling’s hit comedy LOOK WHO’S TALKING. Willis voices Mikey, the titular talking baby… who isn’t really talking, per se, since we are just hearing his thoughts… though sometimes the actor playing Mikey on screen is actually talking but we don’t hear what he’s saying… look, this movie turned out to be way more confounding than we thought possible.
We also discuss the film’s two lesser successful sequels, LOOK WHO’S TALKING TOO (1990) and LOOK WHO’S TALKING NOW (1993), and count the many diminishing returns of talking babies and talking dogs. Plus, we deliver the good news about one of our hosts expecting their own bundle of joy, and get nostalgic about the last year of podcasting during our 2nd Anniversary special!
