JFD307: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown


It's our third and final Director's Week of March as we talk about the ultra violent and ultra stylized first three films of Quentin Tarantino.

Up first, six blue-collar criminals plan and execute a jewel heist but when things go wrong, they quickly realize one of them is a cop in Reservoir Dogs from 1992. Tarantino directs a stellar cast including Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen and Chris Penn.

Next, the film you couldn't escape in the mid-90's, Pulp Fiction. Tarantino's iconic character study of the lives of criminals and low-lifes inspired a whole generation of filmmakers and film watchers. Another incredible cast including John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman and Ving Rhames.

Finally, Tarantino adapt's Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch into a gritty ode to blaxploitation films with Jackie Brown from 1997. Starring the always fantastic Pam Grier as the title character who suckers both gangsters and cops to score a half a million bucks and avoid jail time. As you'd expect, another top notch cast featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Robert Forster, Michael Keaton and Bridget Fonda.

All this plus witty banter between friends, the wacky world of seeing Crispin Glover live, horror convention chat, should kids be allowed in R-rated movies?, the death of Dr. Giggles, brain chat, Nerd News and Blu-Ray Picks, continued lack of police involvement (unless we're slicing off their ears) and a whole lot more!

    1. Seems OK from this end. Ep. 304 didn't go on iTunes for some reason, but everything else is on the up and up. Are you having a specific problem?
