Quentin Tarantino Universe

If you’re a Quentin Tarantino fan, then you know that there are tiny connections that link all of his movies together so that they all exist in the same universe. Tarantino actually clarified how these connections work earlier this year after The Hateful Eight was in wide release:

“There are actually two separate universes. There’s the realer than real universe, and all the characters inhabit that one. Then there’s this “movie” universe, so From Dusk Till Dawn and Kill Bill take place in this special movie universe. Basically, when the characters from Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction go to the movies, Kill Bill and From Dusk Till Dawn is what they go see.”

Now a stylish new video illustrates perfectly and entertainingly how all these movies are connected by jumping back and forth between them. There are even some of the more subtle references that you may have never picked up on, including some stuff from one of Tarantino’s “lost” movies.

quentin tarantino movies ranked

I’ve spent the past few weeks immersing myself in the world of Quentin Tarantino. To prepare for the release of his latest film, The Hateful Eight, I ranked each and every one of his characters. Then I wrote about The Hateful Eight itself, which I saw in its glorious “roadshow” version. Now, it’s time to close the book on this subject for a little while… or until Mr. Tarantino decides to get around to making another movie. It’s time to rank all of his movies. Because this is the internet and ranking things is what we do.

So how do you rank the work of a filmmaker whose worst movie is still an exceptional piece of cinema? With great difficulty. This kind of thing isn’t science. This isn’t definitive by any means. Consider this an opportunity to talk about Tarantino’s work, to debate and discuss his movies. You will most certainly disagree with this ranking and that’s kind of the point.

Now, let’s dive in.

every quentin tarantino character ranked

Every single Quentin Tarantino character is full of life. Look to the fringes of his films and you’ll find supporting characters with more personality and spark than leading characters in other movies. Minor characters, who appear for a single scene and vanish forever, are given lines of dialogue that would be the highlight of other films. Few living filmmakers stack their films with so many memorable names and faces.

And with his new movie, The Hateful Eight, about to hit theaters, it’s time to something really, really dumb: rank every single Quentin Tarantino character of any significance from worst to best. Bear with me. This is going to take awhile.

Quentin Tarantio cinematography

If you’re an observant love of cinema, aside from likely knowing each and every film directed by Quentin Tarantino, you know that it’s fairly easily to recognize his work. This isn’t just because of the extensive dialogue and endless homages to classic, obscure films, but simply by the way he shoots his movies. From dancing scenes to trunk shots to sprawling overhead God’s eye sequences, Tarantino has a very distinct style.

Now a new supercut takes a tributary look at the cinemtography of all of Tarantino’s films, from Reservoir Dogs to his most recent Django Unchained. This slick video highlighting some of the best Quentin Tarantino cinematography will make you want to have a Tarantino marathon very soon. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino Steals

It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino steals from other movies in order to make the films that everyone loves to see him make. This isn’t really an insult to Tarantino as the filmmaker has said previously, “I steal from every single movie ever made. If my work has anything, it’s that I’m taking this from this and that from that and mixing them together.”

And if you’ve ever wondered what movies Tarantino is stealing from, a great visual guide has surfaced online to show you. See what movies Quentin Tarantino steals from after the jump! Read More »
