In short, this will be one hell of an event for Tarantino fans.

And of course Tarantino’s latest film Django Unchained hits theaters on December 25th.

“There is no doubt that Quentin Tarantino’s writing and directorial style has reinvented filmmaking as we know it,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Join Vincent, Jules, Marsellus Wallace, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, Mr. Blonde and the rest of his infamous characters as they return to the big screen in this special two-night Fathom event.”

“Reservoir Dogs”
Released on Oct. 23, 1992, and named the “Greatest Independent Film Ever Made” by “Empire Magazine,” Tarantino’s directorial debut assembles four perfect strangers to pull off the perfect crime. But when their botched robbery reveals a police informant among them, their simple robbery explodes into a bloody ambush. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival (1992) and awarded the International Critics Award at the Toronto International Film Festival (1992), “Reservoir Dogs” is raw, violent and unforgettable.

“Pulp Fiction”
Two years after his groundbreaking debut, Tarantino released “Pulp Fiction” – hailed by critics and audiences worldwide as a film that redefined cinema. Recognized as one of AFI’s “Top 100 Films of the Last 100 Years,” “Pulp Fiction,” set in the basking sun of L.A., follows a burger-loving hit man (John Travolta), his philosophical partner (Samuel L. Jackson), a drug-addled gangster’s moll (Uma Thurman) and a washed-up boxer (Bruce Willis), as their four tales converge in a story of violence and redemption. Honored with an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay (1994) and earning seven total nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, “Pulp Fiction” has been listed as one of the best films of all-time by Time and Entertainment Weekly.

Miramax and Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release the “Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection,” on Blu-ray™ Nov. 20. The set contains eight films personally selected by Tarantino to illustrate the first 20 years of his career, plus two extra discs packed with over seven hours of exclusive, never-before-seen interviews and special features. The set also features striking, original artwork designed and illustrated by MONDO (www.mondotees.com). Tarantino’s newest film, “Django Unchained,” will be released in theaters on Dec. 25.

I saw Reservoir Dogs after Pulp Fiction and it is still my favorite Tarantino film. What’s yours?

      I like Reservoir Dogs and True Romance the lost out of all Tarantino films. I'll catch then in the theater. I bet it'll be a fun crowd.

      I'm pretty excited to get to see Pulp Fiction on the big screen for the first time ever. When it was originally released I was too young to be able to go see it, same deal with Reservoir Dogs. I wound up watching Pulp Fic so many times over the years we started watching it in Spanish to keep it fresh, lol.
