Reservoir Dogs v Pulp Fiction

pulpfictionborderBetween them they have ear-slicing, male rape and 537 uses of the f-word. It’s a bloody battle courtesy of Quentin Tarantino. Let’s go to work. Click HERE or the pic above to read this battle at Metro Film Fight Club.

  1. Without Reservoir Dogs, there probably wouldn’t be any Pulp Fiction, but I still gotta give it to Pulp, it’s one of my all-time favorites.

  2. I’ll have to go with Reservoir Dogs. I’m a sucker for bullshit dialogue.

  3. Got to go with McD and Reservoir Dogs although McG makes a very good argument for Pulp Fiction. Reservoir Dogs is just more awesomeness with that cast.

  4. I’m with McG on this one. Pulp Fiction. They’re both great films though.

  5. Well I’ve only seen Pulp Fiction so I’d go with that, though I heard Mr. Blonde is da bomb.

  6. I wrote you a big long comment on the Metro website, but it seems to have vanished into the ether. 😦

    Can’t be bothered to re write the whole thing, but the gist was I’m really not sure which I like better.
    Usually I’d go for the film with more action, and of my friends most prefer Pulp Fiction. But I think I’m leaning ever so slightly towards Dogs. I think Steve Buscemi has a lot to do with that.

    I promise you I don’t intentionally agree with McD all the time….

  7. Will forward payment asap, Katie 😉
    Btw, I’m shocked that a veteran blogger such as yourself doesn’t ctrl+a and ctrl+c every time she is about to post a comment! Many an insightful insight I’ve lost because of stupid insight-eating websites…

  8. The sad thing is I usually do, but I decided to trust the metro website. Never again.

  9. Pulp Fiction all the way. The one movie in the past 25+ years that single-handedly changed the way people make and watch movies. RD is great, but it’s just not in the same league.

  10. I know everyone loves Pulp and I think it’s an excellent film. However, I think Reservoir Dogs is the tighter film and not as self-indulgent. I would say Jackie Brown, reservoir and Inglourious are his three best. Too much in Pulp that is not needed (i.e. do we really need Mr. Wolf to tell these two to clean out the car for 10 minutes?). I thought Tarantino got a little carried away with his own ego, which he is sometimes prone to doing…

    How in the hell could you ask me to PICK? Is terrible, this choice you have forced upon me!

    That said, I have to go with Aiden R. — it’s gotta be “Pulp Fiction.” While “Reservoir Dogs” was Tarantino’s first, and in some ways it’s still my favorite thing he’s done, “Pulp Fiction” became a pop-culture phenomenon. The theme song, Marcellus Wallace, the argument about the foot massage — it’s part of our culture now. You just can’t say that about “Reservoir Dogs.”

  12. Pulp Fiction is a movie for students, a film that on second look is more contrived than a wrestling match.
    And anybody who owns the soundtrack should never be allowed to listen to music again.
    That is all.

  13. Pulp Fiction by a hair, it wasn’t as tight as Reservoir Dogs, but ultimately Fiction is a collage of a cinematic world, where Dogs was just a heist gone wrong.
