Whilst many people celebrated the 25th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino’s seminal Reservoir Dogs last year, there are some fans who believe that, such is its influence, it should be afforded a more significant anniversary, such as 250th.
“I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say that Reservoir Dogs was the most important film of the nineties,” said fan David Brown.
“So, if you really wanted to celebrate its influence and impact then, really, I think it should be a 250th anniversary, not just 25th.”
“I mean, A Few Good Men had its 25th anniversary last year. Now I like A Few Good Men – ‘you can’t handle the truth’ – it’s great, but it’s no Reservoir Dogs, so I don’t think it’s too much to ask for a more impressive anniversary.”
A spokesperson for Miramax responded to Mr Brown’s request.
“Whilst we thank Mr Brown for his interest, anniversaries are determined by the passage of time. As such, we have no plans to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Reservoir Dogs for 225 years.
“We would also ask Mr Brown to stop sending us unsolicited scripts for a Reservoir Dogs sequel in which he takes the lead role.”
Mr Brown was unsatisfied with the reply.
“That’s rubbish that. I get their point, that you should wait 250 years to celebrate the 250th anniversary but they could have at least compromised with a 100th anniversary.”
