Reservoir Dogs (****)

It is hard to think that this movie came out in 1992, wow time flies. The first time I saw this movie it was thanks to my friend Biggie. It was sometime in 1996 and I remember it changing a lot about what I think about movies. This movie kind of introduced me to dialogue that was witty and made a movie flow.

Starring Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi, Lawrence Tierney, Randy Brooks, and Kirk Baltz. Quentin Tarantino’s debut cult classic chronicles a jewelry heist gone wrong. (Miramax Films)

If you have not watched this movie in a while rent it, is on DVD now and I have not laughed this hard in a while. The movie is just pure joy. I have liked Tarantino a lot more since he was instrumental in bringing Hero stateside. I hope that it keeps on opening the door for Asian films to get out here.

Besides the good dialogue, Reservoir dogs has a great story line and just awesome acting. Sometimes I wonder if Tarantino is just lucky that he can put that much talent in one room or if he is just that good of a director that he makes every actor seem that much better. So have you seen the movie? Do you enjoy it?

  1. Uy hermano esta pelÝcula es genial, no me parece tan buena como Pulp Fiction, pero sigue siendo genial. íViva el buen cine!

  2. Yeah. His movies are all winners. The dialogue is indeed razor sharp. It’s real – it’s like what you and a buddy would talk about, you know? And the frame story structure – stories within stories within stories – or stories that overlap or collide at just the right instant. Hell yeah. He is the god damn shit. The only thing – I’m not really into this Kill Bill stuff. The thing about modern day movies where there are sword fights – is – well – they have guns now.
