Corrected entry: When Samuel L. Jackson is talking with Tim Roth (who is holding a gun on Jackson) at the restaurant we see a closeup under the table of Jackson taking out his 9mm gun with his right hand. But moments later he takes the briefcase with the same right hand and places it on the table between them. Then seconds later Jackson pulls Roth's gun arm down with his left hand and toward him, pinning it for a moment - while at the same time Jackson suddenly pulls out from under the table *his* 9mm gun. Does he have three arms like the alien from Venus in the famous "Twilight Zone" diner episode? If he had placed it down on the seat to his right, wouldn't HoneyBunny standing over them a few feet away have seen it? If it was on the floor, he didn't reach down nearly enough to retrieve it. If it were in his shorts (as he placed it while walking out of the diner with Travolta a few minutes later) he would have had to reach down while sitting, pull it up and out and by that time, Roth and/or Honeybunny would have had three bullets in his head. It was an obvious director's sleight-of-hand, so to speak - a cheat that didn't make visual/time sense in order to surprise the audience - along with Tim Roth.
Corrected entry: When Jules is explaining what would happen if Bonnie came home to find them dealing with the dead body, the camera follows her from outside to the kitchen. When she walks through the front door of the house, she leaves the front door open. This is obviously so the cameraman can walk through behind her, but it's not logical for her to just lazily leave her front door open.
Corrected entry: Lance is sitting at home eating cereal and watching the end of a Three Stooges short, "Brideless Groom," on television. During the subsequent phone conversation between Lance and Vincent, we can hear the short's soundtrack continuing in the background. The soundtrack then abruptly changes to an earlier scene in the short (Christine McIntyre slapping Shemp around) and then to a different short altogether ("Sing a Song of Six Pants," with Harold Brauer talking about a safe combination).
Corrected entry: Marcellus Wallace is bound and gagged while being sodomized by Zed. Butch makes the save by killing Maynard and holding the sword to Zed. Marcellus then shoots Zed with a shotgun. However it is never revealed how Marcellus becomes untied. His bonds had to have been good and tight in order for Zed to have his way with him.
Corrected entry: When Bruce Willis shoots John Travolta John falls back and lands in the bathroom and the door closes. When Bruce goes to open the door we see him put his hand on the blood spot and start pushing the door open, but when we see the door opening from the inside his hand is much lower on the door and below the blood spot.jaws65
Corrected entry: When Mia Wallace has discovered Vincent Vega's heroine and thinks that it is cocaine, she makes a line, then snorts it. She realizes that it is not what she thinks it is and starts to moan and rub her nose. You can tell that Mia is trying to break the blood packet in her nose because at one point she sticks her finger up her nose and pushes hard on something and it takes a couple of seconds of her rubbing her nose to produce any blood.
Corrected entry: In the very first scene with hunny-bunny and pumpkin when they decide to rob the restaurant, hunny-bunny says "Any of you f**king pricks move and I'll execute every motherf**king last one of you." However, at the end of the movie with Vincent and Jules, when the scene is repeated she says "Any of you f**king pricks move and I'll execute every one of you motherf**kers." Also in the second scene it takes a few seconds longer for her to take out a gun out of her purse.
Corrected entry: Scene when Esmerelda is driving Butch in the Cab: Butch asks for one of her cigarettes, and she complies giving him a smoke and a light with a match. When she lights his cig with the match the flame on the match is still burning. But, when the camera shot changes, to a close-up of Esmerelda lighting the cigarette, Esmerelda's match has gone out, without her shaking the match out, or anyone blowing the match out. How did the match go out?
Corrected entry: Whilst travelling in a car with Samuel, John accidentally shoots the man in the back seat. He and Samuel carry on talking. You just can't fire a high calibre gun in an enclosed space and not have a hearing problem.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bruce Willis shoots John Travolta, we can see the impact of bullets that hit Travolta on his body between his waist and neck. However, in the next shot when Travolta is in the bathtub, he is only bleeding from around his belly button and the impacts around his chest are gone.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Vincent, Jules and Jimmy are having coffee, there's a time interval about two minutes long between the first and the last times we see the wall clock behind Jimmy. Given the type of the clock, you would expect its minute hand to move during the scene, but apparently the clock was stopped during the shooting. If the non-working clock were supposed to be part of the plot, it would be quite a coincidence that it shows the correct time for the scene.
Corrected entry: According to the book, the briefcase in Pulp Fiction was the soul of the character with a Band-Aid on his neck, which explains why there's so much emphasis on the Band-Aid; that's where his soul was taken out. It also explains why John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson did not get shot, and why the briefcase glows when someone opens it and how everyone is amazed when they see what's inside.
Corrected entry: When Vincent goes to pick up Mia for their date, he enters the home. Mia, who's watching him on closed-circuit TV, tells him over the P.A. system that she's on the intercom. Vincent asks where is the intercom. Mia tells him it's on the wall. Now, there's no indication of how Mia can hear Vincent's question. So unless Mia can read lips, how could she know what he was saying and respond accordingly?
Corrected entry: The adrenaline injection scene is loaded with factual errors. First, a nurse's textbook would never contain information about intracardiac epinephrine injections (no nurse would ever perform such a procedure). Second, the instruction to pierce the breast plate in order to hit the heart is erroneous as no needle is strong enough to pierce solid bone. Finally intracardiac injections are only done when the chest has been opened, never through the chest wall (due to the risk of lacerating a coronary artery and causing a fatal heart attack).
Corrected entry: During the Bonnie Situation when Jimmy of Teluca Lake is talking about when his wife will be home, an hour and a half or 9:00, if you add an hour and a half to the time on the clock behind him it does not equal 9:00.
Corrected entry: During the Bonnie situation, Travolta and Jackson need to clean up themselves and the car, it is clearly early in the morning (they even refer to 9:00 being an hour and a half away, and it's definitely not 9pm. They call Marcellus and he in turn calls The Wolf. When the Wolf answers his phone he is dressed in a tuxedo and his family appears to be dressed for an evening out. Seems odd that they would be dressed that way at that hour of the day.
Corrected entry: Just before Butch shoots Vincent dead in his flat, Butch makes a racket in the kitchen tearing open the Pop Tarts. Wouldn't Vincent (sitting on the crapper 8 feet away behind the door) have heard him and stayed silent in the bathroom, rather than flush the toilet and casually walk out into an ambush?
