Pulp fiction | ‘say what again’ (hd) – samuel l. jackson
Jules Winnfield says all three catchphrases in a scene from the first quarter of Pulp Fiction (played by Samuel L. Jackson ). Jules and Vincent Vega (played by John Travolta ) are sent to retrieve a briefcase and assassinate a man named Brett in this scene. Jules does so in a dramatic way, citing bible verses to heighten the suspense.
[rising] Brett: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no What I want to know is how – [Jules motions him to take a seat.] I only wanted to express our regrets that-that things went so wrong with us and-and Mr. Wallace. I-I-It…we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we- It’s true. I’ve never…
Jules: Please accept my apologies. Is it true that I shattered your concentration? That was not my intention. Please keep going. Wasn’t it something you said about “best intentions”? [inaudible] What exactly is the problem? Yeah, you were done, right? But, hey, give me a chance to retort. What is the appearance of Marsellus Wallace?
Jules: Well, I’ve memorized a passage that sort’a suits the occasion. Isn’t it Ezekiel 25:17? “The selfishness of selfish men and the tyranny of evil men surround the path of the righteous man on all sides. Blessed is he who shepherds the poor through the valley of darkness in the name of charity and good will, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. [begins pacing around the room] And those who attempt to poison and kill my brothers will be met with great vengeance and furious rage from me. And you’ll recognize my name as the Lord… When I lay my revenge upon thee… [pulls out his pistol and points it at Brett]”
English, motherfucker, do you speak it?
Pulp fiction english motherfucker do you speak it
Do you know English, motherfucker?
English, motherfucker! do you speak it?!
When anyone fails to speak or write understandable English, this is normally yelled at them. “English, do you speak it?” is often misquoted as “English, do you speak it, motherfucker?”
Perhaps the most popular line from the film Pulp Fiction, which was released in 1994. The original line, ironically, was not asked in answer to someone speaking incorrect English, but as a rhetorical query to whether or not a scared man spoke English at all after the man repeatedly said “what?” to his questions. “Where are you from?”
English, motherfucker do you speak it
If you ask Daniel Kaluuya, the London-born son of Ugandan parents who emigrated to England, they don’t have to be Americans. You’re probably familiar with Kaluuya as the star of Jordan Peele’s excellent horror film Get Out. Peele’s wildly profitable film has now crossed the $100 million mark in box office receipts, making him the first black director to do so. However, a question asked by Samuel L. Jackson in a recent interview with New York’s Hot 97 radio station has lingered about the film and Kaluuya’s role in it.
“There are a lot of black British actors in these movies,” Jackson said, adding that interracial dating has been going on in Britain for “a hundred years.” “I also wonder how Get Out would have worked out if it had an American brother who really feels that way.”
“It’s not hard if you live in the Western world,” Kaluuya said of witnessing prejudice. “I walk into a f—ing shop and a security guard follows me. I’ve been doing it since I was twelve. It’s not important for me to look for it. It locates me. Even these interviews I’m doing! Several people asked, “How does it feel to be a black actor?” That’s some racial nonsense! Also, a strange f—ing query. People have become desensitized to it because it is too popular. Occasionally, I learn at an audition that they are attempting to be more multicultural. You’re being picked out for the colour of your skin rather than the substance of your soul, and it’s happening all over the place. Being labeled as “other” has been a part of my life since I was a child. Not fitting in in Uganda, the United Kingdom, or the United States. They simply emphasize whatever feature they want.”
Jackson denied making the implication that black British actors are stealing African-American roles, while also pointing out that African-American actors have far less chances to work in the U.K. than the other way around.
“I’ve known Daniel for a long time,” Jackson said. He’s a fantastic young actor and writer, and all of the British actors who have come here have done a fantastic job and have a natural ability to adapt to the language and cultural norms,” Jackson added. “However, it isn’t something we get to do very much. They don’t invite us to come over and learn how to speak in a British accent. And most of the time, when we come over, we get a work visa, and two days before we leave, someone calls me and says, “You know you have to leave in two days?”
Jackson wondered aloud on his New York radio station Hot 97 about Jordan Peele’s new film “Get Out,” which stars black British actor Daniel Kaluuya, and wondered, “What would a brother from America have made of that role?”
Jackson also discussed Ava DuVernay’s 2013 film “Selma,” and how an African-American actor would have given the character of Martin Luther King Jr., who was played by British actor David Oyelowo, a different perspective.
