TIM ROTH

MICHAEL MADSEN

STEVE BUSCEMI

CHRIS PENN

…And…

LAWRENCE TIERNEY

…And Was Written AND Directed By…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

πŸ˜€

Let Me Just Say This, My Peeps…

RESERVOIR DOGS

…Is Still My Favorite Flick To Be Directed By…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

.Period.

It’s Nothing Too Fancy.

Just Great Actors…

…Playing Great Characters…

…Spewing Forth Great Dialogue In All Directions.

Scenes Of Crazy F-IN’ Violence…

…An Interesting AND Engrossing Storyline…

…Punctuated Throughout By A Killer Soundtrack.

It’s A Minimalistic Motion Picture…

…Driven By All That I’ve Said Above…

…Making A Need For Anything Else To Be…

…Well…

…Unneeded.

πŸ˜‰

I Actually Saw This Flick For The First Time In 1993.

I Was 13-Years-Old.

My Father Had Rented It, And I Decided To Stay-Up-Late And Watch It In Secret.

After Everyone Else Was Asleep, I Popped-It-On In My Room And…

…Honestly…

…Was Totally Blown Away.

I’d Never Seen…

…Nor Heard…

…Anything Quite Like It, Before.

I Remembering Going To School (Jr. High) The Next Day…

…Talking About It With My Friends AND Others…

…Discovering Quickly I Was The Only One Of Us To Have Seen It.

That Simply Added o The Excitement Over The Whole Situation.

Knowing That I Was Sooooo Coooool To Have Seen This Flick (Though I Wasn’t Supposed To Have Seen It) That None Of My Buds Had Had The Chance To Give A Look See Of Any Kind.

That’s Right…

…Sooooo Coooool, Ineed.

πŸ˜‰

I Was The Only One Of Us To Have Witnessed First Hand The Gritty Wonder That Is The Fi;m…

RESERVOIR DOGS

…And The Introduction Of…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

…To My (And Everyone Else’s) Humble Little World.

Other Flicks Would Follow.

PULP FICTION

JACKIE BROWN

KILL BILL

…But None Had The Impact On Me That…

RESERVOIR DOGS

…Had On Me.

It Stands Out.

It Stands Alone.

It STILL Stands As MY FAVORITE Flick From…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

.Period Period.

The Blu-ray Treatment Is Breathtakingly Awesome…

…And Well Worth The Time (And Money) Invested In It.

Check-It-Out, My Peeps.

You Shant Be Disappointed.

It’s THAT Good.

Is It Sad This Is The Most Memorable Song On That Entire Soundtrack?

At Least, It Is To Me.

I Think It’s Sad.

I LOVED The Soundtrack To…

PULP FICTION

…Yet This Song…

FLOWERS ON THE WALL

by The STATLER BROTHERS

…Is The Song That Generally Gets Stuck In Ye Ole Noggin.

It’s Cute.

It’s Catchy.

It’s Almost Infectious, Honestly.

I Can’t Even Believe I’m Admitting This…

…BUT…

…I LOVE This Song.

It’s One Of Those That ALWAYS Makes Me Grin Like An Idiot.

Is That Sad?

Really?

Is It?

Hmm.

I Dunno.

Well…

…Whether It’s Sad Or Not…

…It Doesn’t Change The Fact I Enjoy The Hell Outta This Little Number.

One Of The Major Strengths Of…

PULP FICTION

…Was Its Soundtrack.

One Of The Best To Come-Out In The 1990s, Fo SHO.

Everyone I Know Had A Copy…

…Or So It Seemed.

The Film Was Amazingly Popular…

…And It’s One I’ve Always Enjoyed…

(...though "RESERVOIR DOGS" is still my fave fave...)

…But Its Soundtrack…

…To ME…

…Was The Proverbial Center-Piece.

I Watched The Film Yesterday Evening Before The Cardinals Game Began…

…And Spent The Entire Ballgame Humming This Song To Myself.

It IS Sad, Isn’t It?

Isn’t It?!

Hmm.

I Sure Hope Not.

I Don’t Want Anyone Making Fun Of Me For It.

I Can’t Help It!

It’s Just A Damned Catchy Tune, My Peeps!

I SWEAR!

No Foolies, Fo SHO!

Sheesh, I Say.

Sheesh, Indeed.

So…

…Anyway…

…Y’all Know Bloggin’ ’bout A Song Is Generally The Best Way For Me To Get It Out Of My Twisted Brain…

…So That’s Exactly What I’m Hoping For In This Instance.

So Far?

Nah.

Hasn’t Helped.

I’m Still Humming It.

My Head Is Still Beboppin’ To It.

Knowing Me…

…I’ll Likely Have A Headache From Hell Before It’s All Over.

All Because I Couldn’t Help But Bebop Along To A Tune Most People Would Scoff At And Say…

"Jeez, Dude! CHANGE THE SONG! PLEASE CHANGE IT!!"

I Promise I’m TRYING, Kiddies.

I Really REALLY Am!

It’s Just So So SO DAMNED CATCHY!

Tell Ya What…

…You Try Listening To It…

…Then See What Happens.

I’d Wager It Gets Stuck In YOUR Twisted Brains, Also!

Again, No Foolies!

No Foolies, Indeed!

πŸ˜‰

Enjoy Your Day, Kids.

I Shall Endeavor To Do The Same, Fo SHO!!!
