I went and saw Reservoir Dogs last night with my brother who had never seen it before. It was pretty exciting seeing a Quentin Tarantino film I know and love up on the big screen.

This Thursday night is the "one night only" showing of Pulp Fiction back on the big screen. I'm pretty excited about it!

Anyone see Reservoir Dogs last night, or going to Pulp Fiction tomorrow?

If not, you should be asking yourself, why?

Nobodies goin to see Pulp Fiction tonight?

It's a nationwide thing....look at the showtimes in your local theaters...an entire movie forum and no one else is going to see Pulp Fiction on the big screen?!?!

For shame.....

And this is supposed to be a gathering of film enthusiasts. Forgive me if one of you did take the chance to see Pulp Fiction on the big screen this evening, and just don't feel like telling anyone else. Other than that - I can only take the lack of response as an affirmation that not a ONE of you took advantage of such a great opportunity!

I don't think I've ever laughed as often during a viewing of Pulp Fiction - that was a lot of fun!! Quentin hand picked some previews before the flick. There were also the original theatrical trailers for Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown.

One was the original Scarface trailer, another an old flick with Chow Yong Fat - "The Killer" 1989...and the other was "Machine Gun McCain".... Nice little interview piece with several involved in the script and production of Pulp Fiction. Looked fantastic up on the big screen!!!

I mean come on, all these little topics and games in here and noooooo one spoke a word about the best Tarantino flick being played in theater's again. I find this most unsettling.

No intellectual argument or supposed logic or reasoning will support any defense on why you did not go see it. You just plain missed out. I suppose I ought to assume you are the types who do not care for Quentin's films...HA! Well then, I will just leave that as, your loss.

I saw both of Tarantino's first two movies together at the Guild Theater in 1995, an authentic grindhouse theater in Hillcrest, CA here (used to be a porno theater in the '70s). I saw them all in their first release, of course, and even caught 'Jackie Brown' on a double bill with 'Coffy', in a sharp 35mm print.

Well I have many good reasons, most of them personal. Even if I could get to them, I probably wouldn't. I don't like noisy "festive" screenings for the most part, and I remember these movies all well enough. The power of hype does not compel me.

Let it go, man. I don't even get this crazy about the Coen brothers.
My dirty little secret about that is: I sort of annoyed by all the over-exposure that 'The Big Lebowski' gets at things like Lebowski Fest each year. I love the movie still, but they've made better movies that haven't even been released on ONE good DVD edition yet, which have barely been seen since the '90s, let alone on viewed multiple collector's sets and theatrical re-releases.
I guess I should have written Warner Brothers again about their disgraceful flipper disc of 'The Hudsucker Proxy'. Worse than unsettling, for sure. That movie deserves the royal treatment. Criterion should get the rights for free if they want it.

I got that licked, KB. I live in a different country. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

I just wanted to get a response from SOMEONE...I mean, you can't ALL hate Quentin Tarantino films, could you?

It's all in good fun people.

Too bad the screening was not in other countries.

I own the movie - seen it a million times - still wanted to see it in the theater. Having saw it when it originally was in theaters would not have discouraged me from seeing it again.

It wasn't all that festive, I mean, they just played it again for fun. Which it was.

EDIT: The enthusiasm in my third post was amplified, had a bit to drink. But all that means is: I said what I really meant.

Oh, and that is pretty awesome by the way, seriously.

You excited for Django Unchained? Looks pretty cool...

Two reasons why I saw neither film in theaters this week:

1. I own Pulp Fiction on DVD and I re-watched it just a little while ago.
2. Nothing will ever topple the re-release of Lawrence of Arabia I saw just a few months ago.
