This episode took forever to finally finish, but I am glad I did it. I actually had one mostly done about Reservoir Dogs, but it felt a bit negative for my taste. I really only like talking about things I like, and while I do watch a lot of other people on YouTube and whatnot where they complain a fair amount or bash such-and-such movie I don't think it's MY style. Fortunately, I like most things.

Anything you guys feel I should check out?

Oh man, the third film is a fucking patience marathon. Clocking in at around three hours, you will be subjected the the most sincere hippy bullshit you can imagine. It's mind-boggling.

That being said, I'm sad the fifth film was never finished.

Only have some old dvds and vhs cuts. Hope to upgrade one day, but I'm not on a rush or anything. How long is your cut of the fourth film? Mine is around two hours.

One thing you may have forgotten Kain, is the soundtrack, an epic one made by Basil Poledouris.


I didn't talk about the soundtrack because one, I have little to say other than it is a very functional score made by one of my favorite composers (who also made two of my favorite scores ever: Conan The Barbarian and RoboCop), and two, I literally had that in there but cut it for time. I figure I'll do something down the line.

I take it you didn't like Reservoir Dogs, shame it's one of my favorite movies.

On the contrary, I LOVE Reservoir Dogs. But it truly is a shameless rip-off of another movie.

I disagree, there's about 15 minutes of City on Fire that makes it into Reservoir Dogs, and it adds so much to the characters in the flashbacks that it feels entirely like it's own film.

4th one is an hour and 54 minutes, I understand the original cut is around two and a half. 3rd one is there in its 2h55m glory with two commentary tracks by Laughlin. Have you ever seen the western he made?

City on fire had much more emotional impact on me, but Reservoir Dogs was still a solid and innovative flick.

I have that on Region 1. Its certainly... something. Some great action scenes.

Maybe I should post my video. Visual aids help. But it's a tough call with Tarantino because he makes such a habit of appropriation. My favorite movie of his is still Kill Bill, and that is a grand collage of things that came before.

It's one of those films I own but haven't seen yet. I haven't seen it because, as I understand it, it's essentially a remake of Goyokin, which I still need to watch.

I too understand that it's a remake of a samurai film. Heck Laughlin plays a cowboy who uses a katana. Always wanted to get it, but it's a bit pricy now.

I've seen both films and that short doc "Who do you think you're fooling?", and I still don't really see it. Dogs is richer in character, less of a personal story (City has a while subplot about Chow and his girl) and enough new, original scenes that it doesn't feel like a shameless rip off.

Have you seen Christophe Gans' Crying Freeman? I'd love to see an episode on that.

I'll look into that. I saw it years ago, but it could do with a fresh rewatch.

I think it's the best "comic book" film that nobody ever talks about.
