Great video on the topic.
An interesting theory about character duplication in Tarantino’s films in the comments at io9 by Spangarang
I’ve always imagined that Jimmy (QT’s character) from Pulp Fiction is the same guy as Mr. Brown in Reservoir Dogs. Also, I think Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) is the same character as the Buddy Holly waiter in Pulp Fiction. He’s so paranoid about people knowing who he really is, he vehemently objects to tipping in the diner lest anyone find out he’s actually a waiter himself.
Just what the internet needed – a re-make of the final scene of Reservoir Dogs by guys dressed as food. Well played.
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.
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!
