Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino's amazing debut
So I have finally gotten round to watching Tarantino's debut film Reservoir Dogs. Don't hate, I got the same kinda look when I said I haven't seen Blade Runner, so let's dive in to Tarantino's excellent debut film.
So in case you haven't seen Reservoir Dogs, then don't worry, because the plot is really easy to get. It follows several guys who raid a jewelry store only for it to go tits up as one of the guys is shot and a few others are either dead or missing. Every guy in the film is named after a certain colour, for example Mr Pink, Mr Orange and Mr Brown. One of these guys is an undercover cop, which to be honest I didn't see it coming when I found out who it was.
The film is basically filled with Tarantino's styles, ranging from the very eclectic soundtrack and the way the film is shot. Tarantino is probably one of my best directors, because let's face it, he has given us some gems hasn't he. I mean, Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained, those films are probably my favourite movies by him. He is definitely one of them directors who will never get old, no matter what movie he produces. I'm just waiting for a biblical epic by him, now that would be awesome. The life of Jesus told in a Quentin Tarantino style. In fact, someone get him on the phone I need to pitch him something.
Anyway, what did I think of reservoir dogs? Well, it's a Tarantino film so I loved it. It's got dark humour and a very good script, and very good action scenes. Not to forget the awesome twist that is introduced in the middle half of the film.
