The film studio Lionsgate will be releasing a movie box-set featuring movies directed/written by director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Vol. 2) this Thanksgiving. The box-set entitled “Tarantino XX” will feature the following eight movies: “Reservoir Dogs” (1992),”True Romance” (1993-written) “Pulp Fiction” (1994), “Jackie Brown” (1997), “Kill Bill Vol. 1″(2003), “Kill Bill Vol. 2” (2004), “Death Proof” (2007), and “Inglourious Basterds” (2009). While The Audio Dope is probably going to pass because the box-set is priced at a steep $120 and we already own almost all the films, “Tarantino XX” is definitely a great collectors item.
However we mainly wanted to feature this news because the box-set’s art was done by the movie-poster-art company Mondo, an affiliate of the theater Alamo Drafthouse. Mondo does movie posters featuring old school art rather than photography, which is the main form of poster-art for movies as of late. Personally, the lack of hand-drawn/painted/etc. movie posters is one of the biggest lost elements in the film industry. Art featured in films such as “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Star Wars” make movies so much more enchanting and cinematic in comparison to straight up photography.
