Reservoir Dogs: cinema's most successful heist ever

Reservoir Dogs: cinema's most successful heist ever | BK  Quentin Tarantino | Scoop.it

Reservoir Dogs, released 20 years ago in the US this month, blindsided almost everyone who saw it when it first came out with its fragmented storytelling, its juxtaposition of jaunty pop music and bracing violence, and its rat-tat-tat dialogue. That it feels almost conventional today is just a reflection of how influential Quentin Tarantino’s debut would be for the next two decades.

'Django Unchained' Opens Strong At No. 2 On Christmas Day | Vibe

'Django Unchained' Opens Strong At No. 2 On Christmas Day | Vibe | BK  Quentin Tarantino | Scoop.it

Families flocked to the multiplex on Christmas Day, resulting in huge box office openings.

The Tom Hooper-directed broadway adaptation "Les Miserables" raked in $17.5 million, boasting an all-star cast comprised of Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, according toTHR.

Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" came strong in second place, grossing $14 million as the first R-rated movie to open on Christmas Day. One person who probably didn't head to the theatre to catch the flick was Spike Lee, who told VIBE that "Django" was "disrespectful to his ancestors."

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" came in third place at $10.8 million while the family comedy "Parental Guidance," which also opened Tuesday, placed fourth with a projected $6 million to $7 million

Quentin Tarantino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quentin Jerome Tarantino[6] (pronunciation: /ˌtærənˈtn/; born March 27, 1963) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and actor. His films have been characterized for nonlinear storylines, satirical subject matter and the aestheticization of violence that often results in the exhibition of neo-noir characteristics.[7] Tarantino has been dubbed a "director DJ", comparing his stylistic use of mix-and-match genre and music infusion to the use of sampling a DJ exhibits, morphing a variety of old works to create a new one.[8]

Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Tarantino grew up an avid film fan and worked in a video rental store whilst training to act. His career began in the late 1980s, when he wrote and directed My Best Friend's Birthday; its screenplay would form the basis for True Romance. In the early 1990s, he began his career as an independent filmmaker with the release of Reservoir Dogs (1992); regarded as a classic and cult hit, it was opined as the "Greatest Independent Film of All Time" by Empire magazine. Its popularity was boosted by the release of his second film, Pulp Fiction (1994), a neo-noir crime film that became a major critical and commercial success, widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. Paying homage to 1970s blaxploitation films, Tarantino released Jackie Brown in 1997, an adaptation of the novel Rum Punch.

Kill Bill followed six years later—released as two films, Vol. 1 (2003) and Vol. 2 (2004)—a highly stylized "revenge flick" in the cinematic traditions of Chinese martial arts, spaghetti westerns and Italian horror. He released Death Proof (2007) as part of a double feature with friend Robert Rodriguez under the collective title Grindhouse. His long-postponed Inglourious Basterds (2009) became Tarantino's second highest-grossing film to date ($321 million), which tells the fictional alternate history story of two plots to assassinate Nazi Germany's political leadership. His most recent and highest grossing work is Django Unchained (2012), a western film set in the antebellum era of the Deep South, receiving critical acclaim.
