Andrew Lawston (andrewlawston) | 52 comments Absolutely fantastic. I've still not seen Death Proof, but picked up Inglourious Basterds for a couple of quid in HMV the other day. Can't wait to sit down with that film and a cold beer.

Death Proof isn't as good as some of his other movies..but I enjoyed/own it.

Richard Ebner | 3 comments For a future collectors edition... woudl definately work. Maybe a bit more creativity on the Inglouriuus Basterds cover... there are like a million bad WWII novels out there, that actually have that cover.

Who's the artist?

You don't remember the scene with Bruce Willis, John Travolta and the toaster?

Heh, my copy of The Eagle Has Landed pretty much has that exact cover.

Rasnac | 336 comments Great work! But Iwould put either a burning celluloid film roll or a hand with a sleeve of a Nazi officer uniform making the "wrong" gesture of two with his fingers.

Dara (cmdrdara) | 2693 comments That's fantastic but I also didn't remember the toaster.

How do you all forget the toaster? that's the best part..lol.

Now I really need to find time this weekend to watch Pulp Fiction.

Dara (cmdrdara) | 2693 comments I think about the briefcase (although I think part of that is due to Community) or the gimp or the watch.


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1862 comments I am just another person who didn't remember the toaster. Surely a Royale with cheese would have been better for Pulp Fiction.

Dara (cmdrdara) | 2693 comments Yes! Royal with cheese! Ruth wins.

The toaster scene was a great scene. (Warning: This is the Vincent Vega death scene)

For Pulp Fiction I would have chosen a graphic of a hand raised holding a hypodermic needle (with a small drop of liquid just about to drop off the point)

The Inglourious Basterds image they use is the same as on the DVD I own.

Miles Reid-lobatto | 6 comments I think that Tarintino's films are more suited to the era of tacky pulp paperbacks from the 50s than these. Still great though!
