** The first is an [[spoiler: alternate reality where Hitler was shot down in a theater causing Americans to be obsessed with pop culture and extremely violent]], which consists of ''Film/PulpFiction'', ''Film/ReservoirDogs'', ''Film/JackieBrown'', ''Film/TrueRomance'', ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', ''Film/DeathProof'' and probably ''Film/TheHatefulEight'', ''Film/DjangoUnchained'', and, assuming the latter, then ''Film/{{Shaft}}'', as Tarantino has claimed that Broomhilda von Shaft and Django are the ancestors of John Shaft.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/JackieBrown'' takes place in its own universe, as it is an adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel and is aesthetically distinct from Tarantino's other works.

'''Quentin Jerome Tarantino''' (born March 27, 1963) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and actor. According to legend, he learned everything he knows about filmmaking from working at a video rental store in Manhattan Beach. Creator/RogerEbert once quipped that the store owner should get a finder's fee based on QT's subsequent career.

* He has a [[RetroactiveRecognition quick appearance]] as an Elvis impersonator in ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'', during the episode where Sophia gets married. He's the conservatively-dressed one in the back who snaps his fingers instead of gyrating when they all get up and sing. (This is perhaps his earliest on-screen role.)

* AffablyEvil: Many of his antagonists - and ''protagonists'' as well, since they tend to be gansters or criminals - are pleasant, polite, soft-spoken people, who have Seinfeldian conversations about the minutiae of life in between crimes and/or murders. Arguably this reaches its crescendo with [[Film/InglouriousBasterds Hans Landa]], who's a ''frigging Gestapo officer'' and also one of the most genial people in the film.

** Whenever he uses music from his personal record collection he uses his own LP's with all the scratches and other audio noise to give it a personal feel. (On the officially released soundtracks he uses the official recordings)

** Tarantino LOVES shooting on celluloid film rather than digitally, and it's showing more than ever now that the upcoming ''The Hateful 8'' is being shot in a super-wide 70mm film format and Tarantino seems to be taking advantage of it as much as possible with lots of gorgeous SceneryPorn of snowy mountains and forests.

* AuteurLicense: So far, the ''only'' ExecutiveMeddling a film of his has gone through...was Harvey Weinstein having Quentin split his ''Film/KillBill'' project into ''two'' films. Quentin was all too happy to oblige.

** In Film/PulpFiction [[spoiler: Marsellus Wallace is being raped by two creepy guys in a basement. Yet Butch comes back to save him and kills one of them with a sword, while Marsellus shoots the other one in his crotch and informs him that he's gonna call up some of his gang members to torture him for hours, basically getting "medieval on your ass."]]
** In Film/KillBill The Bride was raped multiple times while she was in a coma. She gets her revenge, though, in the most badass way possible!
** In Film/TheHatefulEight [[spoiler:Warren claims to have forced Smithers' son to perform fellatio on him. While it's implied that [[ButForMeItWasTuesday he doesn't even remember Smithers' son]] and is just [[UnreliableNarrator trying (successfully) to provoke Smithers into drawing his weapon on him]], it's still treated as a MoralEventHorizon and Warren eventually suffers DeathByIrony when he is shot in the groin.]]
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: While most of Tarantino's characters are morally grey, rapists [[spoiler: [[TheHatefulEight almost]]]] always get a gruesome come-uppance.
