If you drive by the location today, though, you’ll see Star Liquor, but you...

During the 2009 Oxford Film Festival, there were a few short films shot around town re-enacting diner scenes from blockbuster movies. I can easily say this one’s my favorite: Pulp Fiction diner scene, re-enacted by two kids in a booth at Big Bad Breakfast Uber props to Micah Ginn, Matthew Graves, and Joe York for producing; and to starring actors Claire Franklin and Jess...
