Quentin Tarantino has the kind of career just about any filmmaker would envy. He’s worked with huge names like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ennio Morricone, revived John Travolta’s career, and transformed Christoph Waltz and Michael Fassbender into international stars. His films are hits with budding cinephiles, picky critics, and general audiences alike. They’re constantly quoted in casual conversations, pored over for thinkpieces, and memorialized on dorm room posters.
But even so, Tarantino has no intention of doing this forever. The filmmaker has long maintained that he plans to quit directing after his tenth film, and he recently reiterated that that’s still the case. For those keeping count, The Hateful Eight was his eighth film, since Tarantino counts both Kill Bills as one movie. Read More »

It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino steals from other movies to inspire his own. The filmmaker has admitted so himself, and he doesn’t care what you think:
I steal from every movie ever made. I love it – if my work has anything it’s that I’m taking this from this and that from that and mixing them together. If people don’t like that, then tough titty, don’t go and see it, alright? I steal from everything. Great artists steal; they don’t do homages.
And his latest film, The Hateful Eight, is no exception. But since Tarantino likes to reference some more obscure films, one cinephile has put together a guide to the movie references the filmmaker made in his western. Read More »
