Added DiffLines:

* BookDumb: He's a high school dropout and didn't go to film school but he has a 160 IQ, is very well-read and is extremely well-versed in cinema and his interviews and commentary show that he's a very intelligent person. To say nothing of the fact that he has built a hugely successful film career and won two Oscars.


Added DiffLines:

* GenkiGuy: He's very energetic and enthusiastic about what he does.


Added DiffLines:

* LanternJawOfJustice: He's quite well known for his epic jawline.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMovieBuff: Let's put it this way: If a film exists, chances are excellent that Tarantino has seen it and has possibly even referenced it.


Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Despite the extraordinary violence and brutality, a lot of his works could be considered quite idealistic. Villains often show human sides, characters often act in noble ways [[HonorBeforeReason even when it would be best to be pragmatic]] and people who show kindness or honor are rewarded in some way, [[RedemptionEqualsLife usually by surviving the film]]. This is arguably most apparent in ''Film/PulpFiction''.


Added DiffLines:

* TaughtByExperience: He didn't go to film school and learned everything he knows about film from watching and making Them.

Added DiffLines:

* EverybodysDeadDave: So far, has appeared in three of his films: [[spoiler:''Film/ReservoirDogs'', ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', and especially ''Film/TheHatefulEight'']]. In general, very few {{karma houdini}}s exist in his films, but the greyer characters don't go down without a fight.

Added DiffLines:

* TranquilFury: In his first interview since the Weinstein scandal broke, Tarantino acknowledged he had known at least some details regarding Harvey Weinstein's sex drive in part thanks to an incident he had learned of years before involving then-girlfriend Mira Sorvino, and is angry not just with Weinstein regarding the true extent of it but also with himself for not doing anything about it sooner, before encouraging men who had worked with Weinstein to come out earnestly with their stories.

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: While most of Tarantino's characters are morally grey, rapists [[spoiler: [[Film/TheHatefulEight almost]]]] always get a gruesome come-uppance. Unsurprisingly, in real life Tarantino was upset when he learned a couple of sexual incidents his boss Harvey Weinstein had been involved in were part of a larger, more disturbing pattern of sexual abuse than he had realized (read: they turned out to not be mere isolated incidents), and his response was predictable to those who had seen enough of his movies.

* BloodyHilarious: Whenever violence breaks out in his works ([[OnceAnEpisode and it usually does]]) expect to always at least be somewhat over-the-top and sometimes bordering on cartoonish (though he occasionally play it for NauseaFuel).
