After all these years and 5 other QT movies, it surprises me that QT fans and film fans in general still list Reservoir Dogs as their 2nd or Nr.1 favourite Tarantino movie.
Why â€žafter all these yearsâ€œ?
There is a lot of young blood out there, many still in puberty, who dig Reservoir Dogs . Those immature individuals love Mr. Blonde, they think heâ€™s supercool and badass. I think so too, but I can also dig Robert Forster as Max Cherry, usually immature puberty-riddled people donâ€™t like him. This is just an example, overall Jackie Brown isn't as flashy as RD. So I thought, when young QT lovers grow up, they would mature and maybe prefer other QT movies over RD. But still, RD is a fan favourite.
Why â€žafter 5 other moviesâ€œ
DONT GET ME WRONG, I love the movie very much. Quentinâ€™s worst is still freakin awesome, no doubt. But it IS his worst, imho. Is nostalgia partly responsible for the high praise? Iâ€™ve watchd it again recently and Quentin really improved on every level. Dialogue, story, characters, directing, cinematography, etc. etc.
For me, Reservoir Dogs is but a glimpse of the genius that was yet to come.
This is a QT forum with many of his fans, so please tell me what makes you rate RD over the other QT masterpieces.
my order of favourite QT movies goes like this:
1. Kill Bill Vol.2 (Nr.1 fav. Movie of all time)
2. Kill Bill Vol.1 (Nr.2 fav. MoaT)
3. Jackie Brown (Nr. 7 fav. MoaT)
4. Death Proof EU cut(Nr. 8 fav. MoaT)
5. Pulp Fiction (Nr.9 fav. MoaT)
6. Reservoir Dogs (Nr. 26 fav. MoaT)
