Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction' Return to Cinemas, with QT's Hand-Picked Trailers

"Reservoir Dogs"
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.)

Well, the official stateside poster for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" is out, and I like it. Why? In a simple, Saul Bass way, it tells you what the movie is about--slavery in the ante-bellum South. And it plays on the title.

Quentin Tarantino’s Official Top Eleven of 2011

Here is Quentin Tarantino’s official Top Eleven of 2011, per the Tarantino Archives. I am happy to see that Tarantino shares my love of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," as a script and as a movie. I love it that "The Artist" ties with another Weinstein Co. film, "Our Idiot Brother." He does seem to admire Hazanavicius, as he puts him on his best director list. As "Iron Lady" and "My Week with Marilyn" are also on his list, methinks he is being kind to the Weinsteins.
