The Tarantino XX 8-Film Collection
Donnybrook Celebrates 20 Years of Quentin Tarantino
Before Brad Pitt was busy carving swastikas into Nazi foreheads, before Samuel L. Jackson threw Chris Tucker into the trunk of his car, before Christian Slater told us he wanted to fuck Elvis, before the whole world knew what the French call a quarter-pounder with cheese, and before we all found out what Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” was really about—before any of that, there was a high school dropout and aspiring filmmaker working as a video store clerk in Manhattan Beach. His name: Quentin Tarantino.
We’ve all heard the stories of what happened next—about how Quentin broke into Harvey Keitel’s house one night and left a copy of the Reservoir Dogs screenplay on his kitchen table. And the rest is history. Now, 20 years and eight films later, the man is a household name.
The Tarantino XX Blu-ray Collection gives you all eight of Tarantino’s films from the first 20 years of his career–Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, True Romance (don’t question it, it is a Tarantino film), Jackie Brown, Kill Bill 1 and 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds—eight films on ten discs, promising ample bonus features.
Okay, so like everything else in this world it is a marketing ploy aimed at eking every red cent out of the average hardworking everyday consumer. But so what if I already own all of the aforementioned films on DVD and have watched them to the point of exhaustion? I won’t complain if I happen to find this one in my socking this 25th of December (which also just so happens to be the release date of Django Unchained). Tarantino marathon anyone?
