tarantino xx 8-film 10 disc blu-ray set

If you’re a fan of Quentin Tarantino, then you may have already wet your pants after seeing the title of this article; if you’re not a fan of Tarantino, just leave. Quentin Tarantino has made quite the name for himself over his 20-year Hollywood career and deserves every bit of the acclaim he’s received, even if I’m not the biggest fan of “Jackie Brown”. This set has every Tarantino movie you could ever need, including “True Romance”, which he didn’t even direct. Unfortunately “From Dusk Till Dawn” isn’t in this collection, but I’ll let it slide… this time. This 10 disc blu-ray set is slated to hit store shelves on 11/20/12 so make sure to mark your calendar or pre-order now because you’re not going to want to miss this one. I know what you’re saying though, “But I already own all of these movies on Blu-Ray”… yeah, so do I, but what I don’t own is 2 discs (5 hours) worth of all new bonus material. That alone is worth the price of admission. So do whatever you have to do, cut off an ear, murder a bride, take some hot little coed for a ride in your indestructible car, crash said car murdering her in the process, then steal her money… I don’t care, just buy this set. I’ve included the full press release below so you can see exactly what is included in this set.
