The Legendary American director and writer, Quentin Tarantino who is famous for his ground breaking movies like “the hateful eight”, “Django Unchained”, “Inglorious basterds”, “Jackie Brown” and “Kill bill” has made a total of 8 splendid films but has said he would retire after 10 films which would be a slap to the film industry. He also wrote thrilling scripts such as Natural Born killers and true romance.
The prominent director is well known for his non linear storylines, intelligent monologues, gore violence, use of 75mm cameras, fast-paced bloodshed of main characters and amazing footage. He always seems to get the best actors to play the perfect part in his Films from the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and Robert De Niro.
There has been a speculation that Tarantino’s 9th film would be about the Manson family murders, which is based on Charles Manson and the Manson family cult killings in 1969.
Here’s a selection of his must watch mind blowing movies:
Kill Bill Volume 1 & 2 (2003-2004): As far as we are concerned this along the volume 1 is one of Quentin’s most violent films with very despicable scenes with gory details and would make you almost feel sorry for the villainous characters. His selection of songs for the tense scenes really tells you that he took his time with this film. The brides’ entertaining performance signifies strength from volume 1 where she had to kill all those that helped bill keep her hospitalized to volume 2 where she learns the five point palm-exploding heart technique to finish off her masochist ex-boyfriend.
Inglorious Basterds (2009): With such a riveting cast, Tarantino proved us wrong by making a revenge fantasy with a lot of humor and a dramatic storyline. Christopher Waltz, who played Colonel Hans Lauda started off interrogation playing a sneaky psychological game in the Nazi era. He flavored the scenes with cynical shrewdness and unyielding drama.
Pulp Fiction (1996): This film won Tarantino seven Academy award winning nominations for Best screenplay. If you thought you had any prediction for how a Tarantino film would end, then you thought wrong and I bet you wouldn’t have expected to see him act in it too because that’s exactly what he did with this film. The film has breath taking scenes with long well-scripted conversations like when a restaurant was about to be robbed and Samuel l. Jackson and John Travolta were in the middle of having a meal but had to be interrupted, Samuel l. Jackson then recited Ezekiel 25: 17 and then shot them. That very enthralling scene has to be one of the best scenes in the history of films.
The Hateful Eight (2015): Imagine eight people that all hate each other and with bounty money on their head all in a room on a cold winter night. Isn’t that absolutely hilarious? It sets off as a Western classic with a bounty hunter and his prisoner on their way to find shelter in an inhabited cabin. Using a 75mm camera for this film, Tarantino achieved a tremendously wider frame and is twice as large as the normal 35mm camera we’re used to. This film will literally blow your mind as it is rationally inclined; it follows an unusual path of treachery, hate and deceit. Of course lots of bloodshed.
Four Rooms (1995): It’s an unassumingly funny and crazily odd but spellbinding film. Although it was a four-segment anthology directed by the most celebrated independent indie directors of 1995 such as Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino. Tim Roth plays a bellhop that keeps a close eye on twelve overbearing guests on his first night of the job on New Year’s Eve. Madonna plays a witch, Antonio Bandera plays an over protective father with troublesome children which the bellhop has to babysit. Let’s just say the hotel is upside down. Tarantino also plays an arrogant film actor in the top suite.
