The first time I saw Reservoir Dogs it literally blew me away. Excellent film and brilliantly acted!!! The dialogue is very original (especially Mr. Brown's interpretation of Madonna's "Like a Virgin"). Seriously one of my favorite movies that cannot be missed!

It was a tough choice between this and Pulp Fiction as the best Tarantino film thus far. Honestly, the rawness of Reservoir Dogs wins out and the fact that it feels less manufactured than Pulp Fiction (the dancing scene with Travolta, for example - Walken's monologue for another). Great performances and excellent dialogue.

If you're going to watch a Tarantino film it should be for the love of dialogue and unusual characters. This film has been criticized as being exessively bloody. But in this film the violence is supposed to be secondary to the converstaions of the characters who just so happen to be ruthless criminals.

So in between the scenes of murder and mayhem it's interesting to hear these petty criminals talk about mundane things. They argue like children when tensions rise. This film won accoldaes for it's novel and minimalist approach to a crime drama film -- and rightly so.
