i heard that reservoir dogs was a remake now thats what i heard i dont know if its true but some one clear this up ill bet you from a diddlydadjoe to a damned if i know if its a remake but just to be sure


#2

No, it’s not a remake. Some people say it’s a lot like City on Fire, but it’s not that close and it’s definitely not a remake.


#3

Hasn’t Reservoir Dogs recenlty been REMADE in INdia or something?

Kind of. There’s an Indian movie called Kaante (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0294662/) that rips off a few American crime films. Reservoir Dogs is one of them.

No, reservoir dogs is not a “real” remake!

Maybe some of you have seen Stanley Kubrick´s “the killing”, it reminds me a little bit of RD!

I watched THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE yesterday. Pretty good Subway-Gangster movie with Robert Shaw and Walter Matthau.



THE SIMILARITIES TO RESERVOIR DOGS:

  • The Color names of the gangsters (Grey, Green, Blue)
  • one of the gangsters is a trigger-happy asshole (like Blonde)
  • The Gangsters kill each other in the end.
  • There is an undercover cop among the hostages



    … I can’t think of more, but I think there are, like… .the background checks on some of the convicts then and such…

Ive never actually seen City On Fire, but Ive read the script.

It is NOT a remake of City on Fire you ignorant motherfucker. The last 20 minutes or so is what Reservoir Dogs was trying to do. Not the whole movie you no-nothing jackoff. Please spare us with your retarded comments on movies you haven’t seen. But you claimed to read the script! Even though the movie is Chinese.

theres a guy called mike white who directed a short called "who do you think youre kidding"



watch it here: http://www.impossiblefunky.com/qt/default.htm



and it clearly shows how much of a remake reservoir dogs is



1.an undercover cop infultrates a gang planning a diamond heist



2. he befriends one of the men(an older robber)



3. theres a mexican standoff at the end, when the boss walks in



4. one of the men goes on a killing spree in the jewellers



5. they walk down the steet in slow motion



i agree that tarantino did a good job with the film (city on fire is not that good really) but to say it isnt a remake ie stupid



it is, simple as that



in an interview tarantino said he hadnt even seen city on fire!!!
