A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

069 Reservoir Dogs
Well, it's about time we got around to reviewing a Quentin Tarantino film ("Quarantino", if you're not into that whole brevity thing, man). A cult film if there ever was one, Matt and Mark discuss the seminal classic Reservoir Dogs. Along with its violence, R'Dogs capitalizes on the subtle yet intriguing nuance of everyday guy conversations, whether its pop-culture musings or humorous anecdotes. Tarantino's dialogue is where he's always been the strongest, which of course is not to sell the film short for its storytelling chops, which QT deftly wields.
