From someone who finds some of Tarantino's work interesting...
30 April 2006 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

I don't like Reservoir Dogs. Matter of taste. Call me an ignorant film aficionado if you must, but I simply don't see what all the fuss is about with that film. I've later enjoyed several of Quentin's films, though. Anyway, when I heard of this 10+ minute long(or should I say, short) documentary comparing it to another movie, I was intrigued. I must say, it's hard to deny that White has a point. There are frighteningly obvious and clear similarities between the two films(though there is no doubt; even from someone who doesn't care in the least for the film - such as yours truly - Tarantino definitely improves on the original), and I'm not certain that Mr. T acknowledges his source. If he does, there is no grounds for the allegations put forth here... if not, Mike is a man who goes against the herd, one that is not afraid to stand up and tell the rest of us(though a few have made similar claims, few, if any, have gone this far with it) that the emperor has no clothes(or, at the very least, he's embarrassingly under-dressed). I recommend this documentary to anyone who's seen Reservoir Dogs... regardless of whether they love it or not. Keep an open mind. You might be surprised. 6/10
