In a move made to grab some coin before the release of DJANGO UNCHAINED, Lionsgate has announced a new box set called TARANTINO XX hitting Blu-ray on November 20th. The eight film set was “chosen by Tarantino to illustrate the first 20 years of his career, featuring the films that helped define his early success, including Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds. To complete the stunning high definition 10-disc set, the Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection also features two discs with five hours of all-new bonus material, highlighted by a critics’ retrospective on Tarantino’s groundbreaking catalog of films and “20 Years of Filmmaking” that contains interviews with critics, stars and other masters of cinema.”
Man, it seems awfully early in his career to be putting together a set like this. Especially since two of his classics (PULP FICTION and JACKIE BROWN) just recently made their way to Blu-ray. 5 hours of extras isn’t enough to get me to drop some bank, but if KILL BILL: THE WHOLE BLOODY AFFAIR was part of the deal, I would hump to the leg of Lionsgate for the next year. A close second would be a new transfer of RESERVOIR DOGS. Currently, the best release of that film was the last DVD release. As it is, I don’t think the above is enough to snag the cash. Not in the crowded field of good releases we are seeing as we come to the end of 2012.
