I've seen Dogs literally 100 times. It's, in my opinion, one of the top 20 best films ever made. So no question you should watch it, if it's your cup of tea. It was an amazing experience, seeing the trailers for all of Quentin's films, then the three classic trailers that he hand picked for the show. The film looked great on the big screen! I've gone to see a lot of these special events. And a lot of them suffer from theaters putting them in, for last nights case, theater 14. This place has 14 screens, 1 being the best. They turned the lights down to about half when the movie started, I hate that. And it suffered from what I like to call, the "turn up the TV!" syndrome, I have my TV much louder than they had it, when I watch any film. And then, a little less than half way through the film, they turn the lights up, almost all the way! And it sounded like the blitz was happening outside of our theater. You could hear the sonic booms from the nextdoor film. Awesome show, bad presentation.

Watching Reservoir Dogs in theaters was like finally having sex with your wife on your wedding day. All these things you liked about her are enhanced and amplified by passion and nostalgia. You notice things about her that she probably doesn't even know. You are now one and you will be thinking about this experience for days after the climax.
I just hope the mistress, Pulp Fiction, is just as good in bed as my first love.

I've always been a fan of Tarantino and I thought this would a great chance to see one of earlier movies on the big screen! I had never seen the movie before. It was awesome to see the old trailers and just cool info about how he got started in this industry before the movie started. I really felt like I got to glimpse into the past. Very well done!

Enjoyed the movie. Had already seen it. It's Tarantino. You've already made up your mind by now.
However, I am rating the "event". Fathom is really proud of themselves for putting this on. From the time when the movie was supposed to start at 7:00 PM, they showed 30 minutes of advertising telling us how cool they are. Some of it repeated. Mind numbing. Then there was another 30 minutes of Tarantino trivia, and trailers for all of his movies, and ads to buy his 95 disc, bluray, special amazing edition of all of his movies in one box set. We've seen all of these movies, we don't need to see the trailers again. That is what Youtube is for. Finally the movie started an hour after of waiting. Will I go to another one of these events knowing all of this? Maybe. But, thanks to assigned seating, I have no motivation to show up on time.

One night only event so I feel mean giving it a 'Must Go!' rating--you can't go. It was last night.
I had only seen this movie on the small screen so it was a wonderful experience seeing it in a theater with an audience. The violence has a greater impact, the storytelling holds up even if you have seen the film before. This might be my favorite Tarantino movie, although not my favorite of his scripts (that would be True Romance).
There is nothing to say about the movie that has not already been said. The coming attractions that played before the movie were very fun. I could have done without the short feature filled with talking heads all praising QT but, other than that, a very good night at the movies.
