Subway, Depression, Steve Buscemi.
Verified purchase
I initially watched this because it had our lord and saviour the big man Steve Buscemi in it. I'd gone on a tangent of watching films made by or with the man himself in them. I hadnt really watched a lot of Tarantino films - before seeing Reservoir dawgs I'd seen like 30 minutes of Inglorious Bastards before getting drunk and arguing with my BF at the time.
I have seen this film 4 times this week, and seeing how it is going to be not available here for much longer you can bet I am going to eat subway and watch it again when my food arrives. I'm not sure why but this movie is an anti-depressant for me. It makes me want to commit crime.
After watching dawgs for the first time I watched a bunch of other Tarantino films and theyre all really good me likey but dawgs just hits different. Not only does it feature Steve Buscemi, but it has:
> a man getting his ear cut off
>swaggy 70's music
>Mr Tarantino talking about Penis for a good 5 minutes
I would actually beg Amazon not to take this film off prime because it pumps my tiny rat brain with vast quantities of serotonin but I can just go on some dodgy website where Marge is going bananas on Homer in the side bar.
is my depression gone? No. But its temporarily relieved by seeing middle aged men shouting and threatening eachother.
10/10 my favorite film at the moment.

Fantastic first film from Tarantino
Verified purchase
Having first watched this film years ago, I always held it in high regards. I recalled it being a tense thriller, but simple in premise. Gritty and dark. After reading an article on the 25th anniversary, I decided to give it another watch Despite being a relatively simple story, bank job gone wrong, and for the most part, taking place all in one room, Tarantino manages to keep you gripped for the whole 1hr40.

I am a big Tarantino fan, and I believe this film to be one of his best. It's small, and tightly worked. Packing in a lot of story into a small warehouse. The use of flash backs to explain the back story of some characters, and while leaving out others works well, and keeps you guessing as to the final outcome.

I watched the version on Amazon Prime, so I cannot speak for the quality of the BluRay, but this film appears to be intentionally dirty. While the HD version is clear, is is not as sharp as you might expect a HD film to be now. I think this is intentional, as it goes along with the somewhat murky and dirty nature of the film. Similar tactics have been used on 28 Days Later, there is no HD version of that film.

Overall Reservoir Dogs is a fantastic film, and has an absolutely huge cast. Each actor is superb, and they play off each other beautifully. 9/10

Alright Ramblers... Lets Get Rambling

This is one of nicest blu-ray films that I have come across in a while. 'Nice' might be an odd choice of words when talking about Reservoir Dogs but the experience of revisiting, what is arguably , Quentin Tarantino's best film to date, is an absolute pleasure.

The blu-ray initialises with the menu screen as opposed to dropping you straight into the film. This menu is well polished and well thought out. It consists of snapshots of the great scenes which are replete throughout the film and done in such a way that if you have not seen the film in a while, you are instantly re-introduced to much of what you loved about it. It really is very well done.

The quality of the blu-ray release is good. It shows it's age but I am all for that in a picture. Unless a studio is going to go all out with a 4k master, or is it up to 8k these days!?! A sympathetic transfer to the source material is all that is needed and you get that and more here.

It's graphic, it's gritty, it's great.

A challenging story of a bank robbery that goes wrong.
Verified purchase
The story enfolds via flashbacks and concurrent events. An undercover policeman is part of the gang and causes their ambush during the robbery. A policeman is taken hostage and is tortured for information.
Unusual dialogue and camera angles which help provide an idea of the different characters . The plot was written by Tarantino but developed further by Stone.

Rugged, raw and riotous
Verified purchase
Somewhere along the way, opinions on Quentin Tarantino have become divided - some still loving his work, others calling it bloated and unnecessarily inflated. However, those are two criticisms that cannot be levelled at his first (major) film, Reservoir Dogs. It's the very definition of `minimalist,' focusing on the aftermath of a bank robbery gone wrong and it's shot (in some places) in `real time.'

The story is simple: a gang of bank robbers thinks that one of their number is a `rat' and has tipped off the police. How do they deal with this? Watch the film and find out.

It's hard to choose a `stand-out' performance among so many great actors. Everyone from the stoic Harvey Keitel, to the psychotic Michael Madsen plays their roles to perfection (and let's not leave out Tim Roth and Steve Buscemi).

Basically, if you like gangster or crime films then you probably should have already seen it. However, even if you're not a fan of the genre and simply enjoy cinema then this one is worth a watch because it is very arty in its approach and the performances alone should make up for the fact that some may consider it to be a little over the top on the violence (not to mention explicit language).

Tarantino's next film, Pulp Fiction, may have been cleverer and more stylish, but Reservoir Dogs has all the raw appeal of a real cult classic that will definitely stand the test of time.

One of the Greatest Movies Ever Made (Blu Ray Review Included)
Verified purchase
Low budget and simple yet very powerful and explosive. Amazing directing (Tarantino's finest in my opinion) great performances/acting all around with a very simple yet quite complex to follow (1st time you watch it) plot line make this a masterpiece. I don't want to ruin any of the plot for anyone who hasn't seen this yet so I will just say that you definitely MUST watch this movie.

*Blu Ray Review (UK Region 2 version).
Having watched the normal 2 disc special edition version DVD several times, I bought a Blu Ray player & HD TV so also decided to upgrade my Reservoir Dogs DVD to 1080p Blu Ray as it's one of my favorite movies. Anyway, the picture on the Blu Ray is fine, crisp and clear. There is definitely a noticeable enough difference from DVD to Blu Ray so it's well worth the upgrade. The best part of the upgrade however has to be the audio which has a massive upgrade and the quality is superb. If you are a fan of the movie you should only buy the Blu Ray as it's the finest picture/audio quality currently available for this movie.

Moustache on Mona Lisa
Verified purchase
The 5 star rating is for the movie and everything necessary has been said about this by others. My beef is about this particular copy of it.
Thoughout the film comments have been added to the screen which are intrusive and extremely irritating and detract from the pleasure of watching the movie because one is compelled to read them, Yes, the comments are interesting and relevant but the place for then is NOT the top left hand quarter of the screen. Not only are there words, but the person who took it upon him/herself to try and improve Tarantino's work has added a decorative blood red motive along with the words which further obliterates what lies beneath.
This information should have been added to the supplementary disc, either under a heading "Trivia" or in a Director's Commentary or some other way.
If I added a moustache to the Mona Lisa I would be labelled a vandal. Whoever did this to the movie deserves even worse because this philistine considers the movie to be far more entertaining than the painting.

Brilliant
Verified purchase
No honour amongst thieves rings to mind. This is a story of a jewelry heist that went wrong making the surviving gang members suspect that one of them was a snitch. Harvey Keitel (playing the role of Larry aka Mr White) was brilliant. I rate this movie 9 out of 10.
