Synopsis:
The Bloodier Shot aims to reinsert the three deleted scenes back into Tarantino's first outing, further exploring the characters and their backgrounds. 10 minutes of new footage has been reintegrated into the film. The scenes are less than ideal quality, but I have done what I could to fix the visual and auditory flaws to help them flow back into the film.
Intention:
I wanted to create the longest cut of the film, and seeing how the film would work with those extra pieces of infomation on the characters and how it informs the plot in someway.
Other Sources:
The Aluminum Falcon's Reservoir Dogs (1992): Tarantino's 35mm Print Reconstruction was used as the main source of the film as it looks far superior to the Blu-Ray, and is based on 35mm references.
Reservoir Dogs DVD - The three deleted scenes and the alternate K-Billy dialogue is taken from here
Pink Floyd's Money, "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" by Reba McEntire and "The World is a Ghetto"by War are also used in the edit.
Release Information:
Digital
Cuts and Additions:
- Used an alternate K-Billy radio take from the DVD to transition into...
- Pink Floyd's Money replacing Little Green Bag in the opening credits, as allegedly Tarantino wanted this track originally
- Cut Joe reacting to Orange's story, and Orange referring to him as The Thing as this isn't in the script and doesn't work with the new scene placement
- Added Mr Orange doing a background check on Mr White
- Added "The World is a Ghetto by War" into the aforementioned scene
- Added Mr Orange discussing that he won't have any backup due to the warehouse location with Holloway (the cop friend)
- Added White, Pink and Eddie in the Van talking about the nurse that they were able to get
- Added "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" by Reba McEntire into the aforementioned scene

This edit is an interesting way to rewatch Reservoir Dogs, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it for a first-timer. I also vastly prefer the original cut, in particular since it has one of my all-time most favorite movie scenes ever, which was ruined in this cut, sadly.

Firstly: the A/V. I think it was a mistake to use the best available source because the quality for the deleted scenes is pretty poor. The end result is that it's highly-distracting when they pop up, because it's such a striking visual difference. Would've been better to keep the immersion of the viewing experience I think. There were also a number of times where it seemed to me like the audio was slightly off-synch...I'm not positive since it could've been my bluetooth headphone signal or something, so I didn't take points off for editing, but I was occasionally distracted by it.

The narrative and scenes.... Well, you ever watch a DVD/BD and think "wow, these deleted scenes are great! I know it would've made the movie pretty long, but why didn't they include them in the theatrical cut?!" Yeah, well that's not the case here. The scenes are all very smart cuts, and feature either
-clunky writing
-weak acting
-awkward framing/camera movement
-a combination of all three.

There's only one brief exchange that I think makes the film better instead of worse, which is the dialogue where Mr. Orange explains that he knows the cops aren't coming until Joe shows up. Knowing that HE knows he just has to sit there and die to catch the big fish is powerful. Everything else just messes up the flow of the movie, makes it less original (not that Tarantino copying City On Fire is that original anyway), and weights it disproportionately into being a cop movie. The original film is a gangster movie, and that's where it's strongest.

The biggest strike against this is just that a weak scene of Mr. Orange practicing his monologue is added and the ending of him actually delivering it, the whole performance that gets him in with the gangsters, and their reactions, selling why they trust him, and the Inception-esque sandwich of the scene inside the scene inside the scene, is all broken. Now the story just peters out without the ending comments from the gangsters. It not only weakens the scene, it actually almost becomes a plot hole in the film. You could easily think "Either Joe is an idiot or Mr. White is or they all are. They talk so much game about being professional, but they don't even know this kid!"

So all in all, this is a curiosity, an interesting glimpse into what could have been. But it's a much weaker film, and not one I'd ever play for someone to show them how effective a Tarantino movie can be.

I have seen this movie many many times in my life so know it pretty well. When I noticed Bobson had done an extended version I HAD to jump on board. I had not seen the 35mm print this edit was based off but I can say it looked pretty damn good. I didn't bother comparing it to my blu-ray because I was satisfied enough.

The one change I thought would annoy me would be the lack of Little Green Bag, something with is just synonymous with this film. However it took about 10 seconds for me to already prefer Money by Pink Flloyd. Just this change alone was great.

The deleted scenes were a treat as I had not seen them before. They definitely felt like they belonged in the film.

No negatives, definitely my go-to version ongoing forward. Bobson does it again!
