Re-imagined Tarantino screenplay covers in the style of a set of Penguin books.
The University of Colorado’s International Film Series is doing a group of Tarantino films over the next week or so if you are in the area.
The Onion AV Club does an analysis of the Mr. Blonde straight razor scene from Reservoir Dogs. Hard to believe that film is 20 years old.
Then there’s Mr. Blonde’s little dance routine, which Madsen performs with exactly the right degree of half-assed mockery. Given this showcase—it’s just him and someone who’s bound and gagged—a lot of actors would choose to showboat, really cut some moves. Madsen understands that Mr. Blonde is terrifying because he doesn’t give a shit, which means he isn’t gonna expend any real energy even on a performance expressly designed to humiliate a torture victim. He doesn’t so much dance as just kinda shuffle a little, doing the absolute minimum necessary to convey rhythmic movement.
There are a couple of very cool Tarantino art pieces from Justin Reed at All Posters that are for sale currently.
The first is The Meeting Place – its got the characters from Reservoir Dogs in it.
Secondly, is The Bride’s Revenge which shows the Kill Bill characters.
Some Regal Theatres in CA are doing flash-back screenings that include Pulp Fiction & Reservoir Dogs. Rare opportunity to see them on the big screen again if you live close.
Its Tarantino Week over at The Flux. They are reviewing Tarantino movies all week long. They’ve already got reviews up for Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction – neither of which got very good marks. Go give ‘em some hell!
Wal-Mart is running a special on the Reservoir Dogs PS2 game where you can get the DVD for free – and the whole bundle is only $9.82
The cover artwork for the Reservoir Dogs PS2 game has been released. I’m glad to see that they stuck with some original poster art and didn’t do something silly with it.
