* HypeBacklash: ''Reservoir Dogs'' is considered Tarantino's first great work but some people loathe this movie for the similarities between it and ''City of Fire'', even calling it a complete rip-off as Tarantino never credited Lam. Many have lambasted Dogs for [[OlderThanTheyThink not being as original as its fans think]] and there is even an [[http://www.impossiblefunky.com/qt/ Anti-Tarantino webpage]].

** Was Mr. Blonde always a psychopath? Or did prison really get to him?



* FridgeBrilliance: Since Mr. Blonde had served four years in prison prior to the events depicted in the film, a plausible explanation for his dislike of alarms is that he got caught because of one.
