Watch “Pulp Fiction” reedited in chronological order

Well, if your weekend calendar was looking a little empty, here’s something to do. You can watch Quentin Tarantino‘s “Pulp Fiction” reedited by YouTube user “crimewriter95” so that all the scenes play out in chronological order. Instead of beginning with Pumpkin and Honey Bunny in the diner, the film now kicks off with Christopher Walken giving Butch his father’s watch. Interestingly, the second scene in both cuts is the same: Vincent and Jules driving and discussing Royales With Cheese. You can find the rest of the differences yourself.

I have seen chronologically disjointed movies that have been rejointed before, like the easter egg on the “Memento” Special Edition DVD that allows you to watch a chronological cut of the film. Generally I find these experiments interesting but less effective than the director’s intended version. Still, I’m curious to see this cut of “Pulp Fiction.” It’s a film where sequences aren’t just jumbled (characters die, then reappear in scenes that took place before their deaths), they’re also repeated from different perspectives. How do you “chronologically” cut together Honey Bunny and Pumpkin from the beginning of the film with Vincent and Jules at the end of it since the two conversations are happening simultaneously? Crimewriter95’s solution was to cross-cut between the two, one chunk at a time. Interesting? Yes. Effective? I’ll let you decide.

I leave you with what might be the greatest YouTube comment of all time, left below the chronological “Pulp Fiction” edit by user “tke434”:

“I had to do this as an assignment when pledging my fraternity almost 12 years ago. This brings back a lot of memories, two VCRs and bottle of Whiskey.”

Drunkenly assembled chronological “Pulp Fiction?” That sounds like fun. Now you know what you’re doing next weekend too!

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
