Miramax may be releasing two of Tarantino's iconic early films, "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction," for one-night-only stands nationwide, but clearly the hand of Harvey Weinstein is at work. After all, Tarantino's latest, "Django Unchained," is coming December 25 and Weinstein needs to drum up some awards buzz before then. Reminding people of Tarantino's fab oeuvre is one way to do that. His eight-film special edition Blu-ray is coming up November 20. That timing is not coincidental either. (See Tarantino XX trailer below.)

Miramax may be releasing two of Tarantino's iconic early films, "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction," for one-night-only stands nationwide, but clearly the hand of Harvey Weinstein is at work.

To add some extra sizzle to the bookings, Tarantino's has "hand-picked" movie trailers from films that inspired him to run beforehand.  In celebration of twenty years of Tarantino on the big screen, Miramax, NCM Fathom, and IGN will present "Reservoir Dogs" on December 4th, with "Pulp Fiction" following on December 6th.  Each screening will also include a special feature that showcases the director's two decades as a filmmaker.

"Reservoir Dogs," a botched heist flick, launched Tarantino's career and memorable aesthetic when it hit theaters October 23, 1992.  Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival (1992) and named as the “Greatest Independent Film Ever Made” by “Empire," the movie shows the director at his quintessential best: a mix of violence, innovation, a slick look, and dark humor.

Released two years later, Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" was lauded by critics and audiences as a groundbreaking redefinition of cinema.  Encompassing various intertwining stories of violence and crime in Los Angeles, the movie earned an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, from seven nominations including Best Picture and Best Director.  It also won spots on AFI’s “Top 100 Films of the Last 100 Years,” and best films of all time by "Time" and "Entertainment Weekly."
