The brilliance of Reservoir Dogs lies in its script, dialogue and actors. For the most part it is just one setting, the garage/warehouse. It's written as a play, with a single main setting, minimal action, minimal budget and a strong emphasis on character interactions and conversations. And it is a play. One I would like to see some day. I would pay good money to see a really good one. Compare Reservoir Dogs to the usual high octane American shite that rely on special effects alone, like Avatar, Avengers, Star Wars prequels, Godzilla, Expendables, etc, etc, a good film doesn't need to rely on any sort of budget and Tarantino proved that.
Pulp Fiction was just incredible from start to finish. Mia Wallace, the first lady of Tarantino, Butch, by far my favourite Bruce Willis role, and Sam Jackson and John Travolta were perfect aswell.
Jackie Brown was Quentin Tarantino's attempt to write a really good female role, it was another heist film, but QT has said numerous times that he was not trying to better Pulp Fiction, it was just a story he wanted to tell. QT also proved how powerful he could write a romance without it ever being cheesy. QT is IMO the greatest Director of romance, he has produced some very powerful boy loves girl scenes, especially so with Kill Bill Vol.2.
Kill Bill was Quentin Tarantino nerding/geeking out. The first one was QT's attempt to write a Japanese influenced Samurai movie about revenge. And he wanted it to be a bloodbath, just like the Samurai flicks he used to watch as a boy. Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown are known as the original Quentin Tarantino Trilogy. Since then, Tarantino has experimented, made projects more diverse than any other director. He wants to master all the different styles and experiment like a Movie Scientist. I would call him a "movieologist". A new word I just come up with :D. Volume 2 went the other way, instead of having old traditional Eastern Influences it had old traditional Western influences. Like probably all movie directors QT loves Spaghetti Westerns. I love how he made a crazy pair of films with those two opposites working as two halves. Though I haven't seen it yet, Django Unchained is QT's attempt to really make an excellent cowboy film. And surprising us once again, by making it about the slave trade.
Quentin Tarrentino's past two films have both been about oppression. QT is Jewish, and thus made a film about Jews exterminating Nazis. Lol. And Eli Roth who played the Jewbear is also a Jew. The film was inspired by old black and white Italian War films. I really like how QT has done so much we never thought he'd do. He's so unpredictable. I reckon the next film he does might be a Sci Fi just because he's that unpredictable.
I got Season 1 & 2 of the Walking Dead on DVD.
