Tarantino XX Blu-ray Collection
Directed by Quentin Tarantino
Great filmmakers do not simply make great films; they force their genius upon the world, reshaping the landscape of their art. The most important filmmaker to emerge from the final decade of the 20th century is Quentin Tarantino, undisputed. His scripts and films are so widely imitated it feels like modern cliché, but this is how we pay homage to the masters. The Tarantino XX collection is the essential Tarantino, eight films that kick ass with unrepentant coolness. Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof and Inglorious Basterds, all in glorious Blu-ray high definition.
