Writer-director Quentin Tarantino's feature debut, an examination of the aftermath of a jewellery robbery which has gone violently wrong, is widely regarded as a milestone of independent filmmaking. Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel and Steve Buscemi are amongst the stars making up the team of robbers who meet at a warehouse after the failed heist and attempt to work out who is to blame. The film includes the infamous ear-cutting scene and a classic 1970s soundtrack.

The blu-ray initialises with the menu screen as opposed to dropping you straight into the film. This menu is well polished and well thought out. It consists of snapshots of the great scenes which are replete throughout the film and done in such a way that if you have not seen the film in a while, you are instantly re-introduced to much of what you loved about it. It really is very well done.
The quality of the blu-ray release is good. It shows it's age but I am all for that in a picture. Unless a studio is going to go all out with a 4k master, or is it up to 8k these days!?! A sympathetic transfer to the source material is all that is needed and you get that and more here.
It's graphic, it's gritty, it's great.
*Blu Ray Review (UK Region 2 version).
Having watched the normal 2 disc special edition version DVD several times, I bought a Blu Ray player & HD TV so also decided to upgrade my Reservoir Dogs DVD to 1080p Blu Ray as it's one of my favorite movies. Anyway, the picture on the Blu Ray is fine, crisp and clear. There is definitely a noticeable enough difference from DVD to Blu Ray so it's well worth the upgrade. The best part of the upgrade however has to be the audio which has a massive upgrade and the quality is superb. If you are a fan of the movie you should only buy the Blu Ray as it's the finest picture/audio quality currently available for this movie.
Thoughout the film comments have been added to the screen which are intrusive and extremely irritating and detract from the pleasure of watching the movie because one is compelled to read them, Yes, the comments are interesting and relevant but the place for then is NOT the top left hand quarter of the screen. Not only are there words, but the person who took it upon him/herself to try and improve Tarantino's work has added a decorative blood red motive along with the words which further obliterates what lies beneath.
This information should have been added to the supplementary disc, either under a heading "Trivia" or in a Director's Commentary or some other way.
If I added a moustache to the Mona Lisa I would be labelled a vandal. Whoever did this to the movie deserves even worse because this philistine considers the movie to be far more entertaining than the painting.
Definately one of the movies that all people who are serious about film should see, and already gave hints as to the talent that was about to be unleashed in Pulp Fiction.
