'''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.

In the early 1990s he was an independent filmmaker whose films used nonlinear storylines and aestheticizing take on violence. He is known for his [[TheMovieBuff absurdly encyclopedic knowledge of film history]]. His films have earned him Academy, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Palme d'Or Awards and he has been nominated for Emmy and Grammy Awards. In 2007, Total Film named him the 12th greatest director of all-time. Known for being ''very'' [[DoingItForTheArt excited about his movies]] in interviews, using many different sources of inspiration with his work and having many {{Shout Out}}s. Notable for his witty dialog and frequently using the same actors in his movies. [[NeverLiveItDown He's also into feet.]]

Is allegedly dating UmaThurman (who he's "loved for years"), although [[http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/uma-thurman-finally-addresses-quentin-4119240 she claims they're just friends]].

Creator/BradPitt presented him [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OR2JQ0vwCDs like this]]. Suits well for the trope page.
!!Works that he has been involved in:


[[folder: Directed: ]]

* "My Best Friend's Birthday" -- Tarantino's first film, shot in black and white. The plot revolves around a man attempting to do something nice for his friend on his birthday, only to have his efforts continually backfire. The film was originally 70 minutes long, but was re-edited to run just over 36 minutes due to a fire in the warehouse where the originals were kept. Never officially released, nor likely ever to be. Unofficially, can be found on Website/YouTube, etc.
* ''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 ''City on Fire''. The nonlinear structure has caused a ''lot'' of comparisons to be made to Kubrick's ''TheKilling''...but Quentin makes it a point to downplay this.
* ''Film/PulpFiction'' -- Various tales of sex, violence, drugs, and redemption intersect in the underworld of LA. This film put Tarantino on the map and had tremendous influence on the way films were made for the next decade.
* The ''{{ER}}'' episode "Motherhood", arguably one of the best of the series, features his trademark foot and {{trunk shot}}s.
* ''Film/FourRooms'' (segment "The Man from Hollywood") -- A group of Hollywood power players hire the bellhop to serve as an impartial hatchet-man to preside over an ill-advised dare. Contains a particularly impressive [[TheOner Oner]].
* ''Film/JackieBrown'' -- A just-making-it flight attendant collaborates with a bail bondsman to pull a heist on an arms dealer. Low-key and more smart than bloody, it disappointed viewers who expected work as stylish as ''Pulp Fiction'', but it has a loyal following. [[InNameOnly Loosely adapted]] from the novel ''Rum Punch'' by ElmoreLeonard, and a subtle homage to the {{Blaxploitation}} films of the 1970s.
* ''Film/KillBill'', Vols. 1 & 2 -- An ActionGirl, LeftForDead after being betrayed by her former lover and the other four members of the group of assassins she was once a part of, goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* A scene in the ''SinCity'' movie, specifically, Dwight driving to the tar pits.
* The ''Series/{{CSI}}'' episode "Grave Danger" -- which is highly regarded as the best two-part episode of the entire series and features a lot of his motifs while staying within the confines of a ''CSI'' episode.
* ''Film/DeathProof'' -- A [[SatireParodyPastiche pastiche]] of exploitation and muscle car films of the 1970's: A serial-killing stuntman targets young women, using his CoolCar as the murder weapon. This was Tarantino's half of his double-feature collaboration with Creator/RobertRodriguez, ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}''.
* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' -- A group of Jewish-American Nazi-killers and a Jewish-French owner of a cinema hatch separate plots to kill UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler at the premiere of a high-profile German propaganda film. [[DespiteThePlan Bad luck ensues]].
* ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' -- Tarantino's take on the Western, or "Southern", as he's calling it, as well as a throwback to Western-themed {{blaxploitation}} films and {{Spaghetti Western}}s. Follows a freed slave as he is mentored by a German bounty hunter (played by Christoph Waltz of ''Basterds'' fame) to save his wife from an evil plantation owner. The film features an AllStarCast headed by Jamie Foxx, Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio, the aforementioned Creator/ChristophWaltz, Don Johnson, and Creator/SamuelLJackson.
* ''The Hateful Eight'' -- Tarantino's second western. Rescued from a self-induced DevelopmentHell - Tarantino initially canceled the project after the script was leaked, but restarted pre-production after a rewrite.


[[folder: Wrote but did not direct: ]]

* ''Film/TrueRomance'' -- A hipster with a screw loose marries a {{hooker with a heart of gold}}, steals a cache of cocaine, and flees to Hollywood with the mob and police in pursuit. Directed by TonyScott, who gave the film a happy ending. As opposed to the below entry, Quentin is on record as liking the final product.
* ''Film/NaturalBornKillers'' -- Serial-murdering lovers on the lam allegedly illustrate something about violence, media, and the American psyche. Directed by OliverStone, who [[ExecutiveMeddling altered the story so much]] that Tarantino disowned the final product. (Interestingly enough, Quentin's original script is much more clearly the dark satire on media glamorization of serial killers that the film alleges to be.)
* ''Film/ItsPat''--cowriter, uncredited
* ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'' -- A pair of hardened criminals (Tarantino and Creator/GeorgeClooney) abduct a preacher and his family, then get ambushed by vampires in Mexico. Directed by Creator/RobertRodriguez--Tarantino's close friend in the business. Tarantino also produced.
* ''Film/CrimsonTide'' -- Uncredited, but rewrote or added many scenes to include his signature pop culture references. Director TonyScott went so far as to credit Quentin with saving the film, giving it what it needed to come "alive".
* ''Film/TheRock'' -- Wrote a late draft of the screenplay. Again, pop culture references appear, particularly early on. (Pay attention in particular to the scene where NicolasCage defends records as being superior to [=CDs=]--[[AuthorTract which is said to be exactly what Quentin believes]]....)


[[folder: His film and TV roles include: ]]

* Mr. Brown in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''.
* Jimmie in ''Film/PulpFiction''. You'll recognize him when he asks what sign ''does not'' appear over his garage. Tarantino was going to play either Jimmie or Lance the drug dealer. He decided on Jimmie so he could be behind the camera during the adrenaline shot scene.
* Johnny Destiny in ''DestinyTurnsOnTheRadio'', his only major role.
* A gangster in ''Film/{{Desperado}}''. He tells a classic joke and then gets shot.
* Famous Hollywood director Chester Rush in ''Film/FourRooms''.
* Richard Gecko in ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'', brother of the main character and one of his largest roles.
* 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.)
* His smallest role is ''Film/JackieBrown'', where he just plays a voice on an answering machine.
* He was a guest star in Creator/JJAbrams' ''Series/{{Alias}}''. He played [=McKenas=] Cole, a former SD-6 agent turned mercenary, in four episodes.
* ''Film/LittleNicky'', where he plays an evangelist.
* He appears as a corpse in ''Film/KillBill'', Episode 1.
* ''Film/PlanetTerror'' as an infected soldier who [[AttemptedRape attempts to rape]] one of the main characters.
* Warren in ''Film/DeathProof'', the bar owner.
* ''Film/SukiyakiWesternDjango'', a Japanese Western with a very similar modus operandi to his own works, directed by Takashi Miike.
* Sid in ''Sleep With Me'', where he goes on a filibuster on the Ho Yay in ''Film/TopGun''.
* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' as a dead Nazi being scalped. Also seen from behind in ''Nation's Pride'' as the American soldier who says, "I implore you, we must destroy that tower!" His hands also [[spoiler:strangle Bridget von Hammersmark.]]
* ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' as an Australian slave trader with a questionable accent [[spoiler:who gets tricked and blown up by Django.]]


[[folder: Executive produced: ]]

* ''Film/KillingZoe'', the directorial debut of former writing partner RogerAvary. Avary had previously written a script titled ''The Open Road'', which was the basis for ''True Romance'', and ''Pandemonium Reigns'', which became "The Gold Watch" story in ''Pulp Fiction''.
* ''Film/TheManWithTheIronFists'': Yet another GenreThrowback, this time, to violent {{Wuxia}} movies of the 70s and 80s.


[[folder: Distributed: ]]

* ''Film/ChungkingExpress'' (Tarantino founded Rolling Thunder Pictures specifically to provide WongKarWai's film with a US release)
* ''Sonatine'' by Creator/TakeshiKitano
* ''Switchblade Sisters'' (initially released in 1975)
* ''Hard Core Logo''
* ''The Mighty Peking Man'' (initially released in 1977)
* ''Detroit 9000'' (initially released in 1973)
* ''Film/TheBeyond''
* ''Curdled''
* ''Film/RollingThunder'' (Initially released in 1977)
* ''Film/{{Hero}}'': Tarantino "presented" the film in American promotional material on the grounds that it be subtitled and un-cut.

Each of his films is packed chock-full of references to other films: [[ListOfFilmReferencesInTarantinosFilms here]] is a far from complete list.

!!Common tropes of his SignatureStyle:

* ActionGirl: Tarantino's appreciation for tough chicks is one of his personal fondnesses. The Bride (and almost all of the female characters from ''Film/KillBill''), the second group of women from ''Death Proof'', ''Film/JackieBrown'' and ''Film/InglouriousBasterds''' Shoshanna Dreyfus are all examples. Action Girls are also referred to in other films. In ''Pulp Fiction'', Creator/UmaThurman's character once appeared in a TV pilot entitled "[[ShowWithinAShow Fox Force Five]]." In ''Film/ReservoirDogs'', the thieves talk about strong Pam Grier characters. Though this film notably averts this principle by having an all male cast- no woman even gets a line of dialogue.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Many of his characters have alliterative names. [[Film/ReservoirDogs Vic]] and [[Film/PulpFiction Vincent Vega]], [[Film/DeathProof Jungle Julia]], [[Film/DjangoUnchained Calvin Candie]]...
* AnachronicOrder: Tarantino is arguably the director most responsible for popularizing this trope in American cinema; for a brief period it was referred to as "Quentinuity".
* 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.
* AuthorAppeal:
** His infamous foot fetish.
** Strong women are often featured prominently in his films.
** Constant [[ReferenceOverdosed pop-culture references]] (especially to exploitation films).
** 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)
** Mixed race couples and romances appear fairly regularly.
* AuthorTract: Some people think that Tarantino is speaking through his characters when they deliver opinions on various subjects.
* AuteurLicense: So far, the ''only'' ExecutiveMeddling a film of his has gone through...was Harvey Weinstein having Quentin split his ''KillBill'' project into ''two'' films. Quentin was all too happy to oblige.
* BadassInANiceSuit: The bank robbers in ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' and the hitmen in ''Film/PulpFiction'' wear identical black suits and skinny black ties. These suits would later reappear in ''Film/KillBill'' (the Crazy 88, and Budd in the flashbacks).
* BerserkButton:
** Tarantino has had confrontations with paparazzi.
** Tarantino is very defensive on the subject of media violence and will heatedly defend himself against claims that his films encourage RealLife violent behavior.
* BlackComedy
* BrandX: Big Kahuna Burger, Red Apple cigarettes, Acuna Bros. Tex-Mex. He also has a tendency to revive dead brands from his own childhood like "Fruit Brute" cereal (he held onto a box after it was discontinued, which has made several appearances).
* CanonWelding: Tarantino has created a largely common universe of his films by including subtle cross-references (for instance, characters commonly refer to others; Mr. White mentions Alabama and Mr. Blonde has Scagnetti as a parole officer, Vic Vega and Vincent Vega are brothers, Jimmie from ''Film/PulpFiction'' and Mr White from ''Film/ReserviorDogs'' have the same last name, etc.) and cameos, but he says that his movies are divided into ''two'' universes.
** 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'', ''JackieBrown'', ''Film/TrueRomance'', ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', ''Film/DeathProof'' and possibly ''Film/DjangoUnchained''.
** The second is a set of films that the characters in the above universe watch - the stuff so crazy over-the-top that it qualifies as escapism for people who walk around in a world where ''PulpFiction'' happened. These are ''Film/KillBill, Film/FromDuskTillDawn, Film/NaturalBornKillers'', and possibly ''Film/{{Machete}}'' and ''Film/PlanetTerror'' because of cameos of Earl and Edgar Mcgraw in both movies. Interestingly, the title character in ''Film/{{Machete}}'' appears in another of Creator/RobertRodriguez's films...''Film/SpyKids''. According to Creator/DannyTrejo, they're the same person. [[BellisariosMaxim How this works is probably better left unquestioned.]]
* CaptainObvious: Tarantino enjoys scattering dialogues around that make jokes about obvious things.
** In ''Film/ReservoirDogs'': Mr. Blonde: ''"Either he's alive or he's dead, or the cops got him, or they don't."''
** In ''Film/JackieBrown'': Jackie showing the contents of her purse to the investigators: "Beauty case." "What's in it?" "Beauty ''products''."
** In ''Film/DeathProof'': ''"Hey, who is Stuntman Mike?"'' Answer: ''"He's a stuntman."''
** In ''Film/DjangoUnchained'':
-->'''Stephen:''' ''"Why's I'm scarin' you?"''
-->'''Broomhilda:''' ''"Because you scary."''
* 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: Creator/PamGrier, Creator/HarveyKeitel and Creator/KurtRussell.
* ChronicallyKilledActor: In his cameos in his own films, Tarantino's character is typically killed off (the exceptions being ''Film/PulpFiction'' and ''Film/DeathProof'').
* ClusterFBomb: Tarantino's dialogue is infamously heavy on profanity, and he's not afraid of dropping n-bombs.
* CodeName: ''Film/ReservoirDogs'', taken from ''Film/TheTakingOfPelhamOneTwoThree''. Later followed by ''Film/KillBill''.
* CoolCar: Once claimed on ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'' that the ''Pussy Wagon'' is sitting in his driveway. [[http://imgace.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/alright-quentin.-your-story-checks-out.jpg Story checks out]].
* CreatorCameo: Frequently plays bit parts in his movies. Some like ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' and ''Film/PulpFiction'' will be minor supporting characters while others like ''Film/KillBill'' will be [[FreezeFrameBonus blink and you'll miss it.]]
* DoingItForTheArt: All of them, but ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'' is the biggest standout.
* 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.
* EvilVersusEvil
* GenreThrowback: Most of his films are throwbacks to the various genres of Grindhouse / ExploitationFilm from the 70s and 80s.
* {{Gorn}}: Parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' featuring a [[ShowWithinAShow Reservoir Dogs parody episode]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow'' directed by Tarantino (voiced by Creator/DanCastellaneta on the episode. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally, the Simpsons producers did want the real Tarantino to voice himself, but]] [[NoodleIncident for reasons unknown]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the Tarantino cameo never happened]]); Tarantino appears on screen and rants, "See, what I'm trying to say in this cartoon is that violence is everywhere! It's even in breakfast cereal!" at which point Itchy chops off his head.
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'' and ''Death Proof'' both change gears jarringly. ''Film/DeathProof'''s switch was a deliberate homage to [=grindhouse=] films, where directors would often cut together two completely unrelated films, often unfinished, to make one whole product.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Creator/RobertRodriguez, whom he has referred to as his brother. D'awww.
* {{Keet}}: Oh, so very much.
* LargeHam: And damn proud of it!
* MametSpeak: He's noted that DavidMamet was one of his three key inspirations, dialogue-wise. (The other two are ElmoreLeonard and RichardPryor.)
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: In spite of having copious amounts of violence and drugs in his films, Tarantino reportedly despises both in RealLife.
* MexicanStandoff: Featured in a number of his works, including ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', in which the participants stop to argue about whether their position constitutes a Mexican Standoff.
* {{Motifs}}: Revenge features as a theme in several of his creations:
** For ''Film/KillBill'': the hero's motivation is revenge through both films.
** In ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', Shoshanna's whole motivation is revenge for what was done to her family.
** Revenge plays a big part of ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' for Django. First against the Brittle brothers, then later against the people of Candieland. Django also often expresses the desire to kill white people as revenge for the suffering of the black slaves.
** The main motivation of the villain of the CSI episode he directed is revenge for the death of his daughter, which he blames the cops for.
* NobleDemon: Since in most of Tarantino's movies almost every single character is a ruthless murderous criminal, there's usually at least one of these to give the audience someone to vaguely support.
* NWordPrivileges: Some of Tarantino's white characters have them. Some don't, but use the word anyway, as racists.
* OneLinerEcho: From Film/DeathProof: ''Now, look, You can't look like you're trying to get her out of here before Christian Simonson shows up, but you've got to get her out of here before Christian Simonson shows up."''
* PopCulturedBadass: Many of Tarantino's are this thanks to his pop-culture obsessiveness. Examples include [[Film/PulpFiction Jules and Vincent]] and [[Film/KillBill Bill]]. The biggest example is probably [[Film/InglouriousBasterds Shoshanna Dreyfus]], a theater owner in Nazi-occupied France who freaking ''kills'' with pop culture.
* PopCultureOsmosis: Tarantino's use of certain bubblegum pop hits or movie soundtracks has given certain melodies different associations in the ears of younger movie audiences. For instance, when one hears the whistling theme "Twisted Nerve" by Music/BernardHerrmann most people won't think of the 1968 film thriller Film/TwistedNerve, but rather Film/KillBill.
* 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.
* RapeAsDrama:
** 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 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!
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: While most of Tarantino's characters are morally grey, rapists always get a gruesome come-uppance.
* ReferenceOverdosed: Tarantino fills his films with references, especially to other movies, to the point that some critics have accused him of being derivative. Even his production company is named A Band Apart, after ''Bande Part,'' the famous Godard film.
* RuleOfCool: He more or less bases ''entire movies'' around something that just sounds damn cool (to him).
* SeinfeldianConversation: Characters will often engage in discussions about various trivia that do not seem to have any bearing on the plot. Sometimes they actually do, and other times they're more for character or effect.
* ShoutOut: [[ShoutOut/QuentinTarantino Has his own page.]]
* SmallNameBigEgo: Many have accused his performances in his own works as seeming like this trope. Whether this is [[SelfDeprecation intentional]] or not is up for debate.
* SoulBrotha: One or more cool (but not superficial) black/Afro-American characters are present in most of his films.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Music tends to be classic pop, rock, and soul hits from the '60s and '70s. Or even really obscure stuff from the '60s and '70s. ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', in particular, features a scene with an awesomely anachronistic pop soundtrack.
** ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' has [[spoiler: a torture scene set the tones of the bubblegum hit "Stuck In The Middle With You".]]
** ''Film/PulpFiction'' uses a lot of surf instrumentals in a story that doesn't even take place near a beach.
** The fight between the Bride and O-Ren Ishii in Film/KillBill is set to [[spoiler: a funky disco cover of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by Santa Esmeralda.]]
* SpeechCentricWork: His films typically feature large amounts of dialogue, often of the [[SeinfeldianConversation Seinfeldian]] variety.
* TheOner
* TheVerse: Various films Tarantino has worked on feature callbacks to other works, showing they are in the same universe. For instance:
** Various product and company names are referenced, such as Big Kahuna Burger and Red Apple cigarettes.
** ''Reservoir Dogs'' was supposed to imply that Alabama from ''Film/TrueRomance'' went on to become Mr. White's old accomplice, but the ending of ''Film/TrueRomance'' was changed, making this unlikely.
** Victor Vega (Mr. Blonde) from ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' and Vincent Vega from ''Film/PulpFiction'' are supposed to be brothers, and a spin-off film about them was planned but never made. Because [[spoiler:both brothers die]], the movie would have had to be a prequel, but by the time that both Creator/MichaelMadsen and Creator/JohnTravolta had an open schedule at the same time, they had both visibly aged enough that having them play younger men would break the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.
** The sheriff killed at the beginning of ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'' appears in ''Film/KillBill'' and both halves of ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'' (the first of which has him surviving TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, thus making continuity difficult to establish).
** Lee Donowitz of ''Film/TrueRomance'' is reportedly the son of Donny Donowitz of ''Film/InglouriousBasterds''. As ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' points out, this implies Hitler was successfully [[spoiler:assassinated at the La Gamaar cinema]] in this universe.
** One of the bandits mentioned in ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' is Crazy Craig Koons, a member of Smitty Bacall's gang -- and a possible ancestor of Captain Koons from ''Film/PulpFiction''.
* TrunkShot: One of his most famous trademarks, appearing in all his films.
