Quentin Tarantino's outstanding directorial debut. Though made notorious for its infamous "torture" scene and its violence, the film demonstrates, for the first time, Tarantino's talent for dialect and love of pop culture references.

Also features one of the best American accents by a non-American actor i.e. Tim Roth as Mr. Orange.

Awesome soundtrack to boot.
Reservoir Dogs is a quintessential American film. A modern classic and cult favorite.

A rat. Slang term for one who snitches to the police, or is an undercover police officer themselves. Origin comes from the great size of rats living in and around reservoirs.
The police know about our heist because Mr. Orange is a reservoir dog

The beginning of Tarantino's undoubtably incredible career. Features a group of people hired to rob a bank that goes awry. Each person is named after a color.
MR. BROWN

MR. BLUE

MR. WHITE

Quentin Tarantino's independent cult classic. About a heist that goes arought when one of the theives actually turns out to be an undercover cop. Is famous for the torturing scene where Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) severes a cop's ear off while dancing to Stuck In The Middle With You.

Quentin Tarantino's "First" film, about a botched Bank heist.
Includes the (in)famous ear torture scene.
Reservoir Dogs?

Refers to when animals, dogs and rats et cetera, fall into a reservoir and are incapable of escape.
They must therefore eat each other to survive.
A bloody mess, of course, ensues
The Battle at the Kool Moe Dee concert was like a bunch of reservoir dogs going at it.

One of Quentin Tarantino's best movies in my opinion, also, his directorial debut. This movie showcases Tarantino's talents as a director as well as an actor. In every movie he directs, Quentin likes to have a small role.
The movie starts out with 5 men planning to rob a diamond store. It continues with 2 men, Mr. White and Mr. Orange, driving to a rendezvous point with Mr. Orange being shot. It is a great movie and I won't spoil the rest.
Some character names from this movie bleed over into his next big hit, Pulp Fiction, which is also one the greatest, if not the greatest movie ever, in my opinion.
Reservoir Dogs is entertaining though violent.
