    @thedude-abides@narrator

    In terms of Dusk Till Dawn, QT if I recall correctly starred and also assisted in producing and directing the film as a joint team film between himself and Rodriguez.

    Its technically not a complete set, it's missing a variety of QT stuff which just makes this collection poor in execution but beautiful in artwork and design.
    Its missing his CSI episode, his 4 rooms segement, as well the script to 'My Best Friend's Birthday.'

    As well to me this might sound harsh it seems that True Romance has been added to this collection, due to the tragic demise of Tony Scott. My reason for saying this is why isn't Natural Born Killers... Dusk Til Dawn and a variety of other films that QT was partially or majorily involved in. I'm disappointed this doesn't include Iron Monkey to be honest.

    @felipe-11 True, I just thought he only wrote and directed his short within the film itself, not the actual whole thing.

    And that packaging is just BEAUTIFUL. I'm totally getting this.

  11. Replicant

    @comicbookfan@thedude-abides@narrator True Romance may be not be directed by him, but it really deserves being there just because it really is his baby; he wrote the story and actually used it for his first short film ever. Then Scott directed the full feature version. Like you wouldn't say Star Wars 5 & 6 aren't Lucas' just cus he didn't direct them.

    Eh. I already own most of those films, and like @comicbookfan said, no TWBA edition of Kill Bill. If it had that, and that was the only (legal) way to obtain it, I'd drop whatever it cost to buy it, and just sell my other copies.

    @mcleve02 In the dance, Salma is the hottest. Afterwards, eh, not so much, lol. I guess that makes Kate the overall winner. She doesn't turn into a monstrous looking thing.

    @ejk1 ok... true true!!! My lord... but is she the hottest vampire ever or does Kate Beckinsale win that award?

    @mcleve02 You're mistaken, my friend. The only good part was Salma Hayek's dance. After that, I stopped caring.

    Aw man, True Romance should not be in there. That's like if they would throw in From Dusk Till Dawn. Anyways - KB: TWBA? Sadly, no... I have all his movies except the last two which I only just want Basterds, but Django Unchained and KB3 will make for a better all-around collection later...

    Haha, @thedude-abides. My thoughts on the film, exactly, except even the first half was a bit stale for me. Regardless, no one can deny that QT has had an impressive career full of genre impacts.

    @mcleve02, I take it you agree?

  27. thedude-abides

    @narrator LOL. Great minds, I guess. Yeah, maybe the first half of From Dusk 'Till Dawn (which I think QT directed, but I'm not entirely sure). The second half I could care less about, and is all RR.
