  • Any Reservoir Dogs fans here?

    Just wondering if there's anyone else out there who was (is) as obssessed with this Tarantino film as I was (am).

    I've just bought my SIXTH copy of Reservoir Dogs. Six copies of the same film. That even exceeds my five copies of the original Star Wars trilogy (in various editions).

    I've got an old US NTSC copy that I obtained before it was released over here.

    I've got the bog-standard VHS widescreen release.

    I've got two special edition VHS box-sets.

    I've got the bog-standard DVD.

    And today, I've got the Special Edition DVD.

    Can't stop myself.

    Regards,


    Mr White.

    ...no, Dr. S. Argh!

        Not a fan of Tarantino whatsoever. Saw Kill Bill volume 1. Hated it. Sorry Doc.

          QT is awesome, however I haven't seen either Volume because they're the only ones that look horrendous.

              RD is by far Tarrantino's best movie. Pulp Fiction runs a close second.

              Keitel, Roth, and Buscemi are excellent.

                Reservoir Dogs is definitely Tarantino's best.

                Mr. Blonde is the man, after I saw that movie, "Stuck in the Middle With You" became my song. Now whenever any of my friends hear it, they immediately think of me (and probably get a little nervous).

                'From Dusk Till Dawn' is great, although technically not a Tarantino movie (although he was a writer). 'True Romance' is another movie he wrote (his first actually) and is fantastic.
                “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

                  Reservoir Dogs is my #1 favourite.

                  Pulp Fiction would be a close second - but still a definite second (if you see what I mean).

                  Jackie Brown was OK, but just doesn't have the quotable lines of the first two.

                  Haven't seen Kill Bill, either volume, so cannot comment.

                  Don't like True Romance because it's not the full Tarantino experience. Same for Natural Born Killers. From Dusk Till Dawn is great, but the part of 4 Rooms he directed was dragged down by the general weirdness of the film - it was OK, just, odd...

                    Doc,

                    Now might be the time to seriously consider therapy. I have been able to limit myself to only one copi of this film. I waited until DVD version came out because I wanted it in widescreen. Its definately Tarantino's best work, but I like Pulp Fiction too.

                      saw it...and enjoyed it. I remember Steve Buscemi standing out for moi! ("cmon, guys, we are professionals!") I've liked his work ever since!

                      6 copies! Any additional footage or scenes in the DVD special edition?

                        Yeah, a sequence in which Larry (Mr White) is identified by his mugshots and some background history of his previous crimes (possibly removed because of the awful acting of the female Police Officer in that scene), some bits with Freddy (Mr Orange) talking to his partner, and two separate angles of THAT scene with the razor.

                        Planning to watch it with the commentary on this evening.

                        I think the US DVD Special Edition might have been out for a while - but it's only just out over here.

                        The odd thing is - my other DVD copy is much lighter than the Special Edition - it's like the brightness got turned up. The colour is better on the Special.

                          Is it a "super bit" DVD?

                            It is a really good movie, I don't know about owning that many copies though lol.... I love Steve Buscemi's acting.

                              No idea - it doesn't say so on the box. Is there another way of telling?

                              I must confess that I haven't heard the phrase before...
