Was The Gimp really a willing slave though? I got the impression that he was just another one of their kidnap/rape victims who had been there so long he'd just surrendered himself to his fate.

Kinda what I figured, too.

I've always wondered: did The Gimp survive that encounter or did he strangle to death on the leash when Butch punched him out?

Merry Christmas from The Gimp.  I got a kick out of that.

I kind of figured he was somewhat...in their employ, shall we say.  But yeah, I got the idea that he was very much on the submissive side to Maynard and Zed, not so much to others.  Kind of like a dog.

I always figured he strangled, but no way he survived overall.  If Butch didn't get him, Marsellus Wallace most certainly did.

It's Schroedinger's gimp.

One thing I learned is toasting pop-tarts while holding a Mac-10 is a bad idea.

Man, it sucks that he finally outed himself as The Gimp. I've been using that on my resume for years now, it really opens doors.

The GIMP was a slave to the decline of Gtk+.

I think you just won the thread.

Then I guess you'll have to port it, won't you?

Nah, he was willing. They "debated" briefly on waking him up, which shows some kind of courtesy, I guess.

That is truly awesome.  Thank you.

I always figured he was willing and Marcellus Wallace and his crew took care of him to eliminate any witnesses.

But did the gimp get off on the pipe hitting nubians that went medieval on his ass?

I think that is a great film, but a lot of people think it's just a gimmicky film because segments are filmed out of order. I thought that made the film even better and why is it a gimmick? It's just another movie technique.

And yea, I think Tarantino did use the N word too much. But it doesn't mean he'sa racist. Hell, Tarantino gave better roles to Samuel L Jackson than Spike Lee, and Jackie Brown was created/given to Pam Grier, an actress that really had been out of the spotlight to that point.

Same.  Biggest unresolved movie plot of the last decade.

Tarantino has done more for brothers than Tyler Perry and Spike Lee combined. Who made Sam Jackson the coolest man on the planet instead of yet another Denzel begging for roles? Jules can explain.

Was Pulp Fiction before A Time to Kill? Jackson was badass in that.

a time to kill was almost certainly before. But that was yet another intense black guy role of sort Denzel was good at too. Jules was a charming motherfarker, ten times more charming than that Lando pig. Badass as Dolemite, more charming than Lando, Sam Jackson carved out a totally cool path. I don't know nothing about racial politics in Hollywood, but SLJ managed to be fun and still be able to totally own that kid reporter interviewing him about the n-word.

I just checked wiki and time to kill was after, but he had smaller roles in school daze and do the right thing. Anyway, my thesis is that Pulp Fiction let him be a strong black actor that didn't have to compromise. And it was all Jackson's work and personality. But look at Forest Whittaker or any number of great African American actors.

That said, Django was a better antislavery movie than 12 years a slave. Remember, Amistad pretty much tanked and... I think I'm meandering.

I disagree. Denzel does focus. Jackson does intensity. Denzel doesn't do anger the same way Jackson does. Jackson saying "they deserve to burn in Hell" would be different than Denzel saying it.
