    Heroin is usually put in balloons, hence why lance asks if a baggie is okay. Also they did not win the twist contest, they stole the trophy. It could be heard on the radio in a later scene.

    And as far as your "it's so loud, people in the apartment complex would respond", I've shot many guns in a few higher end complex and never received a complaint. Fact. Use phonebooks(what are those?) to receive the bullet. I actually shot a handgun in a fully booked hotel (a nice one) and didn't hear anything about it. I was worried it went through the floor. Turns out it did, but no one complained. 🤷

    The first section (however long I've let it drone on) of this has wasted more of my life than the entirety of bonus frills/twirls/embellishing-twaddle contained in the excellent production referenced by its title. And then I've paid the penance of an extra 45-90 sec as I attempt to tip the balance against anyone else creating similarly self indulgent click bait, despite possessing less knowledge about fictional style, dramatic flair or linguistic eloquence alongside less ability to research relevant subjects like recreational drug usage patterns and effects than a scraping-to-C-grade GSCE English Literature candidate.

  • Zenon Kowaliczko
    Zenon Kowaliczko 11 days ago

    TL:DR- Subtract 23 sins, then add on 9 more you missed for a total of 70 sins.

    1.One guy has long, blond hair. The other looks like Jerry Seinfeld and has his same hairstyle (Seinfeld was running for 5 years and was at this point getting 30 million views minimum an episode. Especially given their extremely close resemblance, I highly doubt that "Jerry Seinfeld look-a-like" WOULDN'T be given as a descriptor). The other is a closely groomed brunette. Whether or not they had a description and knowledge of all 3 from Marcellus, or just on Brett specifically, it's fairly easy. Basically a 50/50 shot worst case, only really dependent on if Brett is in the bathroom, and therefore hair color being the only separating feature between the two dark haired subjects.

    2. Nobody in a big city pays attention to anything in an apartment complex. I'll only comment on this particular sin, as you have a valid point afterwards for the additional sins. "One is backfire, three is gun play." Most civilians couldn't identify a gunshot to start, and most of the rest that could only can when it's obvious and in multiple. One gunshot is more likely to be your neighbor knocking something over or dropping a book than someone getting got.

    3. She's getting ready. Using the intercom requires a) the knowledge that there is one, b) the knowledge of how to use one, and c) then responding to said call. By writing a note, she allows Vincent to come in on whatever time frame he so chooses and making himself comfortable freeing her up. I'd be fine a sin for completely defeating the purpose of the note by sitting in the control room and waiting for him to arrive anyways.

    4. 2 habitual users. Because their drug use is habitual and daily, the regular daily routine of having dinner is not unusual.

    5. They don't win. A news bulletin on the radio in the background later announces they stole it.

    6. Explained earlier. Lance runs out of balloons for the heroin, so needs to sell it to Vince in a bag. That's how they did it back then. Now a days heroin is almost always sold in wax paper bundles whereas cocaine is sold in dime bags, corners, or vials.

    7. If you go to the lengths of having an adrenaline shot in your home on account of people OD'ing, I'm sure you you'd also at least have the basic idea of how it's used.

    8. It's common for fighters to warm up and get a sweat going before entering a fight. Or Butch could be a fighter that is nervous before a fight. Lastly, this is his last fight, on top of having the enormous pressure of this fight and either loosing all his money (via a loss, or if he bet on a KO/stoppage) or being killed (either in the fight itself, because he didn't deliver when promised, or if he got caught).

    9. He leaves with nothing but the gear he has on him when he wins. So bringing the watch with him only creates a problem of having to collect it in some fashion afterwards. Because it obviously has enormous importance to him, having it tasked to the girlfriends is logical. A very specific location on a very specific object is good, but why he doesn't have her wear it at all times, or why he didn't leave a note on the front door as a final unmissable reminder in a pressure situation is valid.

    10. See number 2.

    11. Marcellus and Vincent are supposed to have staked out the place, and Marcellus left Vincent in the more dangerous situation (by going to get breakfast, evidenced by having two cups of coffee with the donuts). Vincent is an idiot and left his gun out of his possession anyways, but he makes the mistake of assuming that Butch is Marcellus. The plothole is that Marcellus is wearing different clothing than the night before. If you want to explain the first oddity (Vincent), then Marcellus travels everywhere with a spare suit, suspenders, and shirt. Or, he returned home sometime in the interim, in which case why would a crime lord fetch his employee breakfast except under the previous scenario of being in his company to begin with? It deserves a sin, just not for the reason you gave.

    12. Explained it in number 11.

    13. The gimp is there to explain the type of sick perversion that is to occur. "Oh, these guys are into homosexual behavior and rape". Otherwise, why would Maynard put either to the basement? Serendipitous robbery? Doesn't explain keeping them. Does he know Butch is a champion boxer or Marcellus a crime lord, so he thinks he has one or two presumably wealthy hostages willing to pay some kind of ransom? Once he brings the gimp in, it's now clear they're about to face forced sex and/or murder.

    14. See 13.

    14. Although pawn shops can legally sell ammunition, no smart one is going to store it within sight/easy access to a compatible gun. Most don't deal in ammunition as policy to begin with.

    16. Butch is well within a melee weapons' lethality range against a gun. Especially a sword.

    17. If he has any respect from his crew, which is reasonable given what we've seen, he doesn't need to say anything. All he needs to say is that Butch made it right is some form or fashion and to drop it.

    18. Absolutely. The route from the motel, to his apartment, to the crash site is 38 minutes. The nearest train station to the motel is 6 minutes away. Between the events at the apartment, maybe a minute of unconsciousness after the crash (more than a minute of unconsciousness almost assuredly results in a severe concussion and/or injury that wouldn't be walked away from quickly) and stumbling into the pawn shop, there should be just over an hour for the rape scene to happen. Since they are not boarding at a main stop like Union Station, they can simply walk off the street and onto the train with any bag checks/security. Traffic shouldn't even factor in. L.A. traffic is overblown as it is, at worst at the 11 o'clock window they have the motorcycle, so they can snake through everything.

    19. As you can see, they aren't in traffic at all. Like I said before, people's first instinct would not be to say that that was blood all over the windshield. They would assume it something more mundane at a glance if they took notice at all. So unless someone was side by side and noticed one was covered in blood, they got caught up in traffic, a red light, or had someone come in behind them for more than a passing glance, I don't see a problem.

    20. He's at home. It's not unreasonable to him to change his shirt for whatever reason.

    21. The simple plan worked. He was there is case it didn't and they needed a driver.

    22. Fair enough to dock it had they not, but he explains himself that he was being stupid under stress later.

    23. Go into any public bathroom. It gets quiet. Even if he still hears noise, it's not going to very clear. Most reasonable scenario would be two employees yelling out orders or pickups. By the time there is enough continuous shouting for it not to be normal, Vincent is outside drawing down on Honey Bunny.

    24. No reason to. They've made it clear it's a robbery. They have a 5 shooter and a 6 shooter in a restaurant with near/more people than they have rounds. Unless they are complete idiots and start shooting the people in that wing, then they just run and have a pretty good chance of getting out anyway. The odds of them eliminating every witness are just about non existent, so just let them take the money and get them on their way.

    You did miss some though. 1. In the Cheeseburger Royale scene, they can see clearly their car is on a trailer in the shop windows. 2. When the execute Brett, Jules mag dumps. When they play it back from Jerry Seinfeld's perspective later in the movie, he still has the one round left he plugs Jerry with. Since they aren't on camera and they are both firing in tandem, I can't be certain. But listening a few times, I do believe they fit in the 11 round capacity of their firearms between Brett and Jerry. 3. Bullet holes appear behind Jules and Vincent before Jerry shoots. 4. Vincent enters the house with his coat of one arm, but in the security camera feed it's suddenly in the opposite. 5. When Mia is about to snort the heroin, she's wearing Vincent's coat, it's gone when she lights her cigarette in closeup, then it is again in the wide shot. 6. The dot on Mia's chest disappears when she has the needle stuck into her. 7. Butch's fathers watch jumps 15 minutes from the wide to the closeup in Walken's hand. 8. Jules takes his pants off twice during the shower scene. And 9th, when Wolf gets into his car leaving the junkyard, a car and a tow truck are there. When it switches to the license plate view and he speeds off, the tow truck is replaced by a pickup.

    So in reguards to the samurai sword sin, there is a "21 ft rule" stating that someone with a knife can close a distance of 21 ft before you can lift a firearm and shoot. So in isnt all that unreasonable for Bruce to kill zed there for distance. Its more unlikely that single samurai sword would be legit. Most swords in pawn shops are made of cheap stainless steal ment to make it easy to keep and maintain but is really brittle and be pretty bad at cutting unlike a real version being made of carbon steal.

    The first scene was shot in a dinner in the Hollywood hills-ish. Was my first date with a girl I chased for 2 years. And I missed the chance to sleep with her cause I was nieve (spelling) as hell. The sin off at 49 seconds in really why my Dad walked out of the film when John Travolta shows back up alive. But it is really what makes this film for me... I had to pay attention the second time around. I am serious. I love y’all. Cause I love movies! And I love that other people see them through my eyes... film school literally ruined this for me. I analyze the crap oit of every film I see.

    Film is not life, and films don't work like novels - all film stories have inconsistencies - I'd like to see you do the same thing with e.g. 'Withnail and I', which has huge 'sins' but is still a brilliant film. Actually I think those two films have more in common than has been said so far.

    I used to do heroin back in the days and the part at 5:31 about having the munchies is accurate only when I would have a steady flow of cash and wasn't struggling for my next fix. I could finish almost a whole box of cereal because my stomach was numb or eat like 7 quarters pounders but I would pay for it later when the effects would start to fade.. Don't do drugs ( but if you do, go see a therapist because drugs ain't always going to help out)

    10:38 I'm going to have to stop you right there. The pancakes and general tone of the scene is setup and essential to what comes after. That's why it cuts to Butch and that slow push-in on him as he gets more and more frantic over the watch.
    Also, he didn't take it with him to the fight because he feared getting it stolen is my guess.
    I agree that The Gold Watch could've done with some trimming (especially given what came prior as the pace slows to a crawl and near stop) but from waking up in the morning to "Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead" is perfect.

After all it is movie for young adults who are easy to impress.

    A normal person(in America, at least) doesn’t say “the N word”, or instead uses the preceding epithet, out of politeness and, these days, out of a sense of cultural and interpersonal decency, not to mention a rather justified fear of social and/or professional consequences. Nobody requires any sort of entitlement to say “nigger”; one can say it all day and all night without anybody’s permission, leave, or instruction. One simply shouldn’t.
