* CareerResurrection: Tarantino has remained constantly popular since the 90's, but his movies have reignited the careers of quite a few fallen or forgotten stars.

* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: Averted in both ''Film/PulpFiction'' and ''Film/TheHatefulEight''. In both films it's effectively treated as a MoralEventHorizon.

* ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' -- A heist film that skips the heist, jumping back and forth between the set-up and the calamitous aftermath of a jewelry store robbery. This film uses a nonlinear narrative that became a trademark of Tarantino's. The storyline is said to be based on the RingoLam movie ''Film/CityOnFire''. The nonlinear structure has caused a ''lot'' of comparisons to be made to Kubrick's ''Film/TheKilling''...but Quentin makes it a point to downplay this.

* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: Tarantino suffers from this whenever he finishes his last film. He had been talking about ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' for over ten years before the film came out, in one form or another, to the point where it became near-vaporware in Hollywood. He also talked about a ''Film/KillBill Vol. 3'' after the second one was released focusing on Vernita Green's daughter (which has never become anything concrete). In addition, he mentioned in passing a prequel to ''Inglourious Basterds'' after the film finally saw release. He's also talked for years about doing a ''Vega Brothers'' movie, uniting the two Vega brothers from ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' (Vic Vega aka "Mr. Blonde", played by Creator/MichaelMadsen) and ''Film/PulpFiction'' (Vincent Vega played by Creator/JohnTravolta). Eventually he just abandoned the idea when the actors got too old. It's a common belief amongst Tarantino films to take EVERY one of his proposed ideas with a grain of salt until filming actually starts.



* CareerResurrection: Tarantino has a knack for bringing forgotten or underappreciated film genres back to attention. Certain actors whose career has been in a slump for a while have had their careers resurrected by appearing in his movies. The most spectacular example is Creator/JohnTravolta, who was a hasbeen ever since the Film/SaturdayNightFever craze died down, but became an A-list star again after starring in Film/PulpFiction. Other actors Tarantino brought back in the limelight haven't had quite the same level of career revival but still became more notable in mainstream media again include Creator/PamGrier, Robert Forster, Creator/HarveyKeitel and Creator/KurtRussell. Additionally, [[Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh Jennifer Jason Leigh's]] performance in ''Film/TheHatefulEight'' earned her her first ever Academy Award nomination, following years in which she had been acting in somewhat more low-key projects.



* CreatorKiller: Hasn't suffered one himself, but he famously [[DiscussedTrope analyzed the trope]] for Charlie Rose during their 1996 interview for ''Film/PulpFiction''.
* DoingItForTheArt: All of them, but ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'' is the biggest standout.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: In spite of having copious amounts of violence and drugs in his films, Tarantino reportedly despises both in RealLife.



* ProductionPosse:
** From a producer-standpoint, Harvey Weinstein.
** From an acting standpoint - Creator/SamuelLJackson, Creator/TimRoth, Creator/UmaThurman, Creator/MichaelMadsen, Christoph Waltz, James Parks and Creator/HarveyKeitel, amongst others.
** Sally Menke edited all of his movies up through ''Inglourious Basterds'' until her tragic death in 2010. His subsequent films have been edited by Fred Raskin.
** The cinematography for all of his films since ''Kill Bill'' have been done by Robert Richardson, with the exception of ''Death Proof'' (which Quentin Tarantino did himself). Before this, Andrzej Sekula shot both ''Reservoir Dogs'' and ''Pulp Fiction'' in addition to Tarantino's segment of ''Four Rooms''.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Most of his films walk this line. Probably most obvious in ''Film/KillBill'', where it's repeatedly lampshaded. In ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', where it is lampshaded in a subtle, creepy way: there is a scene where Germans are watching a Nazi propaganda movie about a German sniper who killed massive numbers of Allied troops while behind enemy lines. They are laughing and enjoying themselves watching people from our side get slaughtered. Then the audience is invited to laugh and enjoying itself watching people from their side get slaughtered.

** In Film/KillBill it is implied that The Bride was raped multiple times while she was in a coma. She gets her revenge, though, in the most badass way possible!

* He has a quick appearance as an Elvis impersonator in ''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.)
