Reservoir Dogs 
An ear for an Ear?? Quentin's 1st Masterpiece!
3.5/4 stars

First of all, anyone who says this movie is dull, boring, too violent or what ever else people like to say about RESERVOIR DOGS, needs to sit down and watch it again uninterrupted.. This is definitely one of the best films made in recent memory and the film that alerted Hollywood to the writing and directing talents of Quentin Tarantino. Superbly acted throughout by all the cast especially Steve Buscemi and Micheal Madsen and with instantly quotable dialogue, this film really is happy relief from all the effects bloated, studio films that the cinema is full of these days.The extra special thing about the dialogue in this film is how real it is. The characters are like average people you would see around on the street and they talk about average things like tipping or the real meaning behind Madonna's Like a Prayer. (Hilarious scene!). The issue about the violence is a dumb one. Contrary to popular belief, there isn't a whole lot of violence in it. And the big controversial scene (the ear chopping sequence) isn't even on camera! In conclusion, this movie is incredible in a low key way. It shows that you don't need a massive budget or loads of special effects to make a brilliant movie. This film is timeless and will definitely be in top movies lists for decades to come. If you haven't seen it then see it now. If you have....then watch it again!
