Reservoir Dogs Pulp Fiction

Quentin Tarantino fans are going to have a very, very good holiday season. Not only is the director's latest film, "Django Unchained" (new trailer here), set to drop on Christmas Day, two of the director's landmark films will be headed back to theaters in what should be a nice cinematic appetizer.

"Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" will get one-night-only screenings across the country on Tuesday, December 4th and Thursday, December 6th respectively at 7 PM, though some theaters will be offering matinee showings as well. The events will be part of the promotional drive for the upcoming "Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection," which streets on November 20th. Purporting to be a celebration of the director's twenty-year career, our peek into the contents reveals that it's largely a big missed opportunity, especially for QT diehards who will likely already have much of the material, and it still lacks a number of other items (the "Grindhouse" cut of "Death Proof," for example).

Anyway, in case you were wondering, both films will be screened digitally, preceded by trailers hand selected by Tarantino of movies that inspired him, which is pretty cool. Tickets are available now via Fathom Events and Tarantino XX. In case you haven't seen the movies, synopses and trailers for both are below. 

“Reservoir Dogs”

Released on Oct. 23, 1992, and named the “Greatest Independent Film Ever Made” by “Empire Magazine,” Tarantino’s directorial debut assembles four perfect strangers to pull off the perfect crime. But when their botched robbery reveals a police informant among them, their simple robbery explodes into a bloody ambush.Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival (1992) and awarded the International Critics Award at the Toronto International Film Festival (1992), “Reservoir Dogs” is raw, violent and unforgettable.

“Pulp Fiction”

Two years after his groundbreaking debut, Tarantino released “Pulp Fiction” – hailed by critics and audiences worldwide as a film that redefined cinema.Recognized as one of AFI’s “Top 100 Films of the Last 100 Years,” “Pulp Fiction,” set in the basking sun of L.A., follows a burger-loving hit man (John Travolta), his philosophical partner (Samuel L. Jackson), a drug-addled gangster's moll (Uma Thurman) and a washed-up boxer (Bruce Willis), as their four tales converge in a story of violence and redemption. Honored with an Academy Award^® for Best Original Screenplay (1994) and earning seven total nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, “Pulp Fiction” has been listed as one of the best films of all-time by Time and Entertainment Weekly.
