Tarantino XX 8-Film Collection
With Django Unchained ready to bust into theaters on Christmas Day, it seems like the perfect time for a little Quentin Tarantino film festival. Luckily, this set has eight of the director’s best—according to Tarantino himself. The 10-disc collection is certainly some of the director’s finest, featuring Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof, and the Oscar-nominated Inglourious Basterds.
Each of the eight films has its own special features, including commentary, deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, and so much more. There’s also two extra discs, with “Critics Corner: The Films of Quentin Tarantino” and a peek at the director’s 20 years in the business.
Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Death Proof all have a 2.35:1 image, with Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, and True Romance getting a 2.40:1 release. Jackie Brown is the lone flick in the set with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The audio is an equally mixed bag. Reservoir Dogs is listed with DTS-HD Master Audio and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX tracks. True Romance and Death Proof have Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 tracks. Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown each has a lone DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2 both have a 5.1 uncompressed track, along with Dolby Digital 5.1. And finally, Inglourious Basterds has both DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks.
