Film nerds, rejoice! A 10-disc Blu-ray set containing all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies will hit retails shelves just in time for the holiday season. Slash Film reports that the set will contain all of the director’s movies released thus far including Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, True Romance, both installments of Kill Bill, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. In addition to the aforementioned flicks, prospective buyers will receive two discs stuffed with new supplemental material.
The set, which has been dubbed Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection, will feature a colorful cover design from the talented individuals at Mondo, a company known for their impressive movie posters and film-related artwork. According to the official press release, the set comes with a suggested retail price of $119.99, which is actually a pretty good deal for an eight movie package.
However, if you’ve already purchased the individual versions of these films, there’s essentially no reason for you to double dip. According to Slash Film, the Blu-ray collection doesn’t include new versions of the previously-released discs. Unless you want to spend $120 for some nifty artwork and two discs worth of supplement material, there’s no incentive for consumers to splurge for the same items twice.
Sadly, it doesn’t look like the extended Japanese cut of Kill Bill Vol. 1 will be included in the set either. Presently, the only way you can see this version of the movie is to download it (not recommended) or spend nearly $50 for a Region 2 DVD from Japan.
Not surprisingly, the release of the Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection is scheduled to coincide with the director’s latest theatrical effort, the Old West revenge flick Django Unchained. The film — which stars Jamie Foxx, Don Johnson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, and Christoph Waltz — is scheduled to open in US theaters on December 25. The set, meanwhile, hits retail shelves on November 20.
