Ah yeah, I was mainly thinking about commentaries for films he had no involvement in the production of as I already have them. I'll have to check out King Boxer (Dragon Dynasty) though, thanks for the heads up!

I just read that he did audio commentary on Switchblade Sisters.
Not sure if it's true but just read that online!
He also does audio commentary on Hostel II, Although he kind of did have something to do with the production of that.

Nice set and those exclusive extras look good but I own everything in the set on Blu-ray already and won't be double dipping.

I won't be picking up this because I bought Inglorious just last week and I have the stand-alone DVD of Death Proof and the Japanese Grindhouse so I'll pick up the other films on Blu when I see 'em cheap... I don't care what anyone says about Tarantino, I think he's a cool dude and he's done a huge amount to legitimize Cult Cinema for mainstream audiences - I mean, a nod from Tarantino about say Dawn of the Dead and my friends would be looking to borrow it from me...

It's become quite "cool" to knock him, hasn't it. I must say, I'm not a huge fan of DEATHPROOF (it's grown on me though) but I've loved everything else he's directed and TRUE ROMANCE is one of my favourites and easily Tony Scott's best too.

Yeah, I don't get the Tarantino bashing ? He's a cool guy and a major film maker. I had problems with Kill Bill 2 but a weak Tarantino movie is someone else's masterpiece. I love Tarantino's comment at the Cannes 95 press conference when Three Colors Red was in competition with Pulp Fiction and Tarantino asked for a show of hands for people who voted for the Kieslowski. The hands went up and Tarantino said "Get the f*ck outa here!"... something like that but it was cool anyway...

I remember seeing an item on C4 news about Pulp Fiction winning the Palme d'Or and C4 news guy said the film was expected to receive "massive cuts" when released in the UK...

I've never enjoyed his films but like the fact he has opened up the world of cult cinema to more people. That said, I still bare a grudge against the man for using Dick Dale on the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack which meant as a surf music fan, when I finally got to see Dale, the whole place was full of more Tarantino fans than Dale fans, all waiting for that one song! Git.
