I dont think anyone in the movie fucks up their lines. Those conversations were as natural and cool as anything Ive ever heard spoken on the big screen. If there WAS a noticable error, QT wouldve definitely done another take. What kind of director who writes his own stuff leaves IN a bad take of his dialogue?[/quote]
a director making his first feature film
If you mean that its not as big in scope as his later movies, well, thats obvious. So what?
QT has only really changed in one area to me: his direction and in that I means hes gotten bolder and even sharper. Everything else has stayed the same. Hes always written great dialogue, casted his films great and hes always picked the best music. That being said, Dogs has some awesome direction in it. QT has even said the movie came out exactly the way he wanted it. Ya cant argue with that.
we are not arguing with that. we are merely looking back at the feature film debut of a director we all love, and as far as I am concerned I look back at this film now from a more objective and neutral standpoint than the last time i saw it. i grew up watching it first a couple of times in german dub, then in english and now, years after all that, i finally got the opportunity (that means out of my 200 or so dvds i finally picked RD again) to rewatch it and i chose to be very very critical and objective, and all i am saying, and that is what most others said here, is, that reservoir dogs, although being a kick-ass and cool film, a tarantino masterpiece and whatnot, … all that aside, it still has some minor flaws, which, after a distance reviewing, is exposed to the critical viewer, and yeah, there are some lines that are a bit awry, and yeah, i think there are moments that should’ve been cut or re-shot… but that’s not the point. the point is, that we are talking objectively about a film we ALL love. and loving somebody doesnt mean you cant discover flaws. if you cant admit that, you’ve never been in a relationship
