Quentin Tarantino will be ushering in his 20th year in Hollywood and to celebrate the Oscar-winning director’s legacy, Lionsgate will be releasing ‘Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection’ on Blu-ray, November 20, Entertainment Tonightreports.
‘Tarantino XX’ artwork is created by Mondo artist Ken Taylor. Quite appropriate for Tarantino’s works, the images for ‘Tarantino XX’ are in a graphic novel style, with black and rich blood-red for the color palate. Notable characters from Tarantino classics are shown including a dancing Uma Thurman from Pulp Fiction and a blood thirsty Brad Pitt from Inglorious Bastards.
Exactly 20 years ago, Tarantino came onto the scene with the release of Reservoir Dogs, a film that depicts a simple jewelry heist gone awry. Hollywood got their first taste of the cult director and it has been a love affair ever since.
Tarantino has managed to make ultra-violence, ultra-cool. His characters usually include mismatched bandits and thieves.
The director maintains that any vulgarities or racial epithets are necessary in order to write characters accurately:
“As a writer, I demand the right to write any character in the world that I want to write. I demand the right to be them, I demand the right to think them and I demand the right to tell the truth as I see they are, all right?”
‘Tarantino XX’ includes Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill I, Kill Bill II, and JackieBrown, among others. There will also be five hours of never-seen bonus material.
If the set of Tarantino classics isn’t enough, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs will be playing in theaters nationwide on December 4 and December 6 respectively, The Chicago Tribunereports.
