Teenage Mutant Reservoir Dogs
Mashups are mad scientists’ greatest legacy to us, the ADD generation, wherein a combination of disparate images and audio work together so effortlessly, they create something wholly new.
Lo, and also behold, this Reservoir Dogs/ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mashup is one of those instances. Quentin Tarantino’s breakout “Reservoir Dogs” script was brazen and unapologetically violent, challenging the mainstream from the fringes, while the TMNT movie was the culmination of a licensed property frenzy, concurrent with the illustrious Henson Company Creature Shop working at the height of its power. Perhaps the two movies work together well because of their mutual starkness, but in all likelihood, that’s over-thinking it.
It’s probably just Raphael delivering Steve Buscemi’s “Mr Pink” line and the funny animals cursing.
