RESERVOIR DOGS (1992) - A 90'S CLASSIC !
« on: July 09, 2009, 01:11:37 pm »

We remember seeing this back in 1992 when it first came out and were blown away (Forgive The Pun)....



It defined Crime Movies in the 1990's and placed Quentin Tarantino firmly as one the greatest directors in Hollywood.... :mellow:

Featuring great performances from Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Chris Penn, and Lawrence Tierney who steals every scene....

What other film could you openly sympathize with several Criminals planning to stage a major Jewelry Store Holdup even if there is a undercover JBT amongst them  and who here really did'nt cheer Harvey Keitel and the rest on when they sent many Cops to the afterlife ? :snorting:

Plus featuring several great Retro Tunes such as.....

Little Green Bag

Hats off to QT for featuring such well loved and enduring 70's Retro Classics like Stuck In The Middle, Little Green Bag, and Hooked On A Feeling to accentuate the action....

And don't we all LOVE the scene where Harvey Keitel's character( Mr.White/Larry Dimmick) blows away two :snorting: :snorting: in their JBT Special with the greatest of ease ????

Mr. Brown: [after Joe assigns names] Yeah, yeah, but "Mr. Brown"? That's little too close to "Mr. Shit".



Mr. Pink: Yeah, "Mr. Pink" sounds like "Mr. Pussy". Tell you what, let me be Mr. Purple. That sounds good to me. I'm Mr. Purple.

Joe: You're *not* Mr. Purple. Somebody from another job's Mr. Purple. You're Mr. Pink!

Joe: Now listen up, Mr. Pink. There's two ways we can do this job. My way... or the highway :angry:

Tarentino was so upset after the movie True Romance(which he wrote but didn't direct) that he used members of his own family as extras so he could afford to make Dogs.
Without the financial help of "The Wolf"(Keitel) it's doubtful the movie would have ever been made. :huh:

The Final Reel of Tarantino's First Film called My Best Friend's Birthday"was destroyed by a fire  in 1987......



Tarantino after reading another of Claire's LOTR Threads..... ^_^

If it had survived, his career would've been launched earlier.... :mellow:

Quentin Tarantino came out of nowhere (i.e. a video store in Manhattan Beach, California) and turned Hollywood on its ear in 1992 with his explosive first feature, Reservoir Dogs. Like Tarantino's mainstream breakthrough Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs has an unconventional structure, cleverly shuffling back and forth in time to reveal details about the characters, experienced criminals who know next to nothing about each other. Joe (Lawrence Tierney) has assembled them to pull off a simple heist, and has gruffly assigned them colour-coded aliases (Mr Orange, 1Y0-A05 Mr Pink, Mr White) to conceal their identities even from each other. But something has gone wrong, and the plan has blown up in their faces. One by one, the surviving robbers find their way back to their prearranged warehouse hideout. There, they try to piece together the chronology of this bloody fiasco--and to identify the traitor among them who tipped off the police. Pressure mounts, blood flows, accusations and bullets fly. In the combustible atmosphere these men are forced to confront life-and-death questions of trust, loyalty, professionalism, deception and betrayal. 70-620 As many critics have observed, it is a movie about "honor among thieves" (just as Pulp Fiction is about redemption, and Jackie Brown is about survival). Along with everything else, the movie provides a showcase for a terrific ensemble of actors: Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, Christopher Penn and Tarantino himself, 640-816 offering a fervent dissection of Madonna's "Like a Virgin" over breakfast. Reservoir Dogs is violent (though the violence is implied rather than explicit), clever, gabby, harrowing, funny, suspenseful and even--in the end--unexpectedly moving. (Don't forget that "Super Sounds of the Seventies" soundtrack, either.) Reservoir Dogs deserves just as much acclaim and attention as its follow-up, Pulp Fiction, would receive two years later. --Jim Emerson

Tarantino was influenced by the films of John Woo as well....



Woo makes a cameo appearance in the Coffee Shop scene in Pulp Fiction as Jules and Vincent are walking out the door...

Mr. Pink: You kill anybody?
Mr. White: A few cops.
Mr. Pink: No real people?
Mr. White: Just cops.
