If Pulp Fiction Were an 8-Bit Video Game

In the latest installment of CineFix’s 8-Bit Cinema series, creator David Dutton and composer Henry Dutton take on Pulp Fiction with aplomb.

The detailed, entertaining adaptation takes Quentin Tarantino’s artfully scrambled plot lines and arranges them in chronological (or left to right, if you prefer) order, as the “player” moves between the stories of Jules, Vincent, and Butch. Especially amusing: Vincent and Mia’s reimagined dance-off at Jack Rabbit Slim’s.* Enjoy.

Correction, Jan. 8, 2014: This post originally misstated that Jules dances in Pulp Fiction. It is Vincent who shakes a tail feather with Mia.
