Seeing “Reservoir Dogs” #MovieReview

Film number 12 on the list of 1001 to watch and the second one I’ve seen before. 1992’s Reservoir Dogs! Quentin Tarantino’s third film. The first was Love Birds in Bondage which was never finished and 1987’s My Best Friend’s Birthday. And of course he’d later go on to make Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill & Django Unchained (all on the list). But enough ass-kissing. First time I saw this, I was far too young and only really watched to for the soundtrack (which you can hear here -> Now that I’m nearly 21 and actually had a chance to properly watch this film, I rather enjoyed it very much. Memorable scenes and very quotable. Who can forget the “Stuck in the Middle with You” while Mr Blonde carves off a policeman’s ear. Glad I got to watch it again. And really helped Tarantino launch to the success he’s had over the years. Here is what I had to say while watching 1992’s Reservoir Dogs
