A Bloody Mess

What an EXCELLENT DEBUT for a great director. The story line was great. The flashbacks to previous events were well done. The ACTING was superb, especially by HARVEY KEITEL and MICHAEL BUSCEMI (Spelling?). This movie is NOT for children. If you do not like GUN SHOT WOUNDS, BLOOD and SWEARING (Mucho F bombs)?, do not go. FINAL WORD: In most cases, CRIME DOES NOT PAY. You will either wind up dead or in prison.

Very Good Presentation!

Very good movie. This is Quentin Tarantino's directorial debut. This movie was a good look into the mind set of how Tarantino thinks. There are no other movies quite like this. While this movie is filled with blood, guts, & violence, Tarantino does an excellent job of developing the characters to the point that the plot shines and make the blood, guts, & violence bearable. Very good directorial debut. It was well worth bringing this back to the big screen.

Great movie and trailers, interviews less so

Was extremely happy to finally see "Reservoir Dogs" on the biog screen, and loved Q's choice of trailers. However, the interviews were mostly with people no one cares about. Would have loved to have heard from Quentin or some of the stars of the movie -- even Eddie Bunker, if he's still alive. Behind-the-scenes people are nice, but I wanted to hear from Keitel, Buscemi, Roth and Madsen. Or even some of the people who didn;t get roles in the movie, like Christopher Walken and James Woods. Hoping the "Pulp Fiction" interviews are better.

The best dish at the best restaurant, but it was served on a garbage can lid.

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.
