Check Out An Exclusive Clip From The TARANTINO XX COLLECTION! Robert Rodriguez And Eli Roth On The Significance Of PULP FICTION!

Beaks here...

Unless you've been living in a box stashed away in the basement of a Canoga Park pawn shop for the last few months, you've probably heard about the TARANTINO XX 8-Film Collection. It's timed to the twentieth anniversary of RESERVOIR DOGS (which came out my freshman year in college, and, Jesus, I'm old), and it includes all six of Tarantino's features available on Blu-ray/DVD to date (with KILL BILL still presented as separate volumes), as well as Tony Scott's masterful interpretation of QT's screenplay for TRUE ROMANCE. There's also five-hours worth of special features, the most notable being a new documentary which includes interviews with Tarantino's various collaborators, critics and filmmaking buddies.

Because you've been good boys and girls today, here's an exclusive look at a brief segment from the documentary!

    little ode there to the exploitation past of Mr T. I hate these collections that come out after you have already double dipped on half the movies and bought the other few just on BR.......

    Tarantino for EP7

    by JimboTHC

    Not directing, just a bad ass bartender in mos eisley that uses the F word constantly.

    Which should include Gail Palmer's HOT SUMMER IN THE CITY.

  • Later films sealed the deal on both of these great film makers, but god damn was that a fucking awesome movie. Brad Pitt's greatest role. Walken at his gangster best. Hopper being Hopper. Gary Oldman defining the role of a character actor. Sam Jackson being Sam Jackson before he was Sam Jackson. Val Kilmer as fucking Elvis! Patricia Arquette as the dumb sexy bimbo every man loves deep down, even if they won't admit it. And, of course, Christian Slater at the height of his coolness (yes, Slater was once very cool). No matter what anyone thinks of Tony Scott, True Romance (along with Man on Fire) elevates him to one of the modern greats.

    God I Hate Double Dipping!

    by Michael Thompson

    But, I might have to just like Star Wars (many times over), Indiana Jones, and every other movie that's in my top 50. I think I've boughten over 5 diff copies of Reservoir Dogs. I do appreciate the fact Tarantino hasn't done this with his recent films. But I do want that Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair on blu soon!

  • Insofar as the sheer number of imitators that it inspired. Shit not even just in narrative style, but it also shifted perceptions of film music.</p> </p> The Matrix was the other major 90s film to spawn a sub-genre of imitations, but it was so late into the 90s that its influence wasn't really felt until the 00s.</p> </p> Incidentally, I was channel-surfing the other day and came across Pulp Fiction. Hadn't watched it in a few years and only intended to sit down for a couple of minutes. Ended up watching the whole damn thing. It's just such a fucking great film.</p> </p>Finally, here's a big fuck you in advance to the inevitable morons who will drift in and suggest that Pulp Fiction is overrated.

    Are we ever going to get the whole Bloody Affair?

    by hector

    What's the hold up on it?

  • Nov. 7, 2012, 8:36 p.m. CST

    Hands down, most influential movie of the 90's by a mile.

    by Stifler's Mom

    To be a moviegoer in the 90's meant you saw the PULP FICTION effect EVERYWHERE. The writing, the editing, the violence, the soundtrack... such a revolutionary film that it was almost instantly being ripped off by filmmakers everywhere. Not since CASABLANCA had a screenplay been stuffed full of so many classic, quotable, timeless lines.

    ACROSS a hundred and TENTH STREET...

    by KHjLL

    I've always thought of NATURAL BORN KILLERS as OLIVER STONE'S film biography of TARANTINO... It's GRINDHOUSE PULP -(Pulp Grinhouse) to a T... First time I saw NATURAL BORN KILLERS took a trip out to the desert like the crew- I felt like the ghost that kept following Mickey and Mallory KNOX through out the film... So livid... I always though THE WAY SOME PEOPLE DIE by Ross Macdonald and TARANTINO would be a good match...

  • Nov. 7, 2012, 9:17 p.m. CST

    Put a little bit of KANSAS CITY and JACKIE BROWN in...

    by KHjLL


  • Nov. 7, 2012, 10:07 p.m. CST

    Dusk Till Dawn could be in there too.

    by JediRob

    His screenplay. Has a lot of his flavor.

    Re: Odd ...

    by ArmageddonProductions

    ... it can't be a "complete" box set unless it includes DESTINY TURNS ON THE RADIO ...

  • Nov. 7, 2012, 10:26 p.m. CST

    yay, more needless promotion of Eli Roth!

    by mrgray

    The only person who promotes that subpar hack Roth more than himself is QT. Why are we still hearing his name? He's the alpha male of bromoerotic starfuckers. Enough already.

    Whole Bloody Affair or GTFO

    Enough already!

    by krull rules

    Enough with Westerns, WW II, and Grindhouse. Make Vega Brothers please!

    It's Malibu Stacey with a new hat...!

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Anyone else pissed off by these elaborate boxed sets that don't offer any new content, just the pre-existing Blus in a snazzy new case? Yeah, there's a disc with new interviews, but I don't need a few hours' worth of Tarantino's filmmaker buddies jerking him off. It's like that Terminator Anthology package relased by Best Buy a few months back...yeah, the case looks cool, but all of the discs are IDENTICAL to the previous releases, meaning the first film still has a lousy, antiquated transfer and no original mono audio. I'd buy a boxed set of Tarantino movies if A.) I didn't own them all already, and B.) they offered SIGNIFICANT new extras or improved transfers (Reservoir Dogs could use one). Where are the deleted scenes and in-depth behind-the-scenes footage for Kill Bill? Fuck the extended cut, I'm perfectly happy with the current versions of the films, but I want making-of swag that's better than those fluffy EPKs included on the previous DVDs.

    P.S. Eli Roth is awful in all ways

    The whole bloody affair

    by jpwishbone

    Personally I like that Kill Bill comes in two episodes. They are very different styles of film. The first a shallow action blood fest, the second a much deeper character film. Actually I prefer the second. Pai Mei is awesome and You actually start to care about Kiddo. Putting the two films together would be Ok but I think it would make you feel the second half drags compared to the first because of the change in style.

  • Eli Roth should be talking up QT all the time, because without QT Roth would have already have faded into obscurity about 8 years ago.

    For once i'm glad i didn't rush out for the PF Blu

    by gerry derboven

    I have putting off buying that for a while now, weirdly because it's my favorite movie of all time. I only bought Reservoir Dogs in Blu because it was so dirt cheap. Expecting this under the xx mas tree come december.

    From Dusk Till Dawn

    more exclusive clips of the doc!!

    by JAMF no seriously, love ya Q!

  • Really annoying.

    Is True Romance a new transfer

    by Samuel Fulmer

    Because the one on the current blu ray looks like shit. Also too bad no Kill Bill Whole Bloody Affair. I guess a good set for those that don't own any Tarantino films.

    About Whole Bloody affair...

    by v1c_vega

    I know KB Vol1+2 different cut make the Whole Bloody Affair but if you think about it QT is more than likely going to make Vol 3. So the Whole Bloody Affair won't be the Whole Bloody Affair without Vol 3. So i now believe we won't see the Whole Bloody Affair on Blu until Vol 3 has been done and dusted. My bet is another few years yet !. I really liked the idea of a Vega Brothers movie but it was like how could that happen now i mean going into the past with younger Vic + Vince ? . I then had a thought that what if in that Movie universe of Dogs + Pulp (which must be shared due to the fact they are Brothers) that Vic + Vince are Killed at the same moment in time they both go to hell of course whereby the Devil and God are having say a conversation of sorts about the redeeming qualities of the human race. Basically the Devil believing we have none and God that we do. They just so happen to pick on the very next two subjects that come into hell Vic + Vince who get sent back to earth to prove who is right and along there journey path to whatever outcome a man who's "Walking the earth" could play some prominence. So rather than seeing Vic + Vince in the past we could see them in the Future. I think it could work and would love it if QT wrote it..... but only in my dreams i think. I will be dipping however often i need to with regards to Tarantino. In best Calvin Candie voice "He is a mighty fine maker of them there movies"

    I wonder if they spoke to Roger Avery for the set...

    by red_weed

  • Nov. 8, 2012, 11:50 a.m. CST

    With all of the hyping for Man with the Iron Fists on this site...

    by Cagliostro

    I notice a distinct lack of reviews. One of those films whose quality speaks for itself, I guess.

  • Nov. 8, 2012, 12:43 p.m. CST

    Adding to my wish list!

    by thefinn68

    I want to see a double feature re-release of Resovoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction on the big screen a la Grindhouse! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    by grassh0pperunit

    I saw Reservoir Dogs in 1993, when I was 18. I was just starting to get into independent cinema and was blown away by this movie. That movie and hearing the Pixies for the first time (which was close to the same time frame) really changed my views about cinema and music. I will definitely be picking this up.
