There’s something about Quentin Tarantino’s films that makes you want to watch them again and again. When I watched Pulp Fiction, I was enlightened and thought – “this is how films should be made”. Ever since watching that film, I was always on the look out for interesting films. Of course, I’ve also watched run-of-the-mill types and some promising titles but there’s nothing better than the stylistically violent and addictive Quentin Tarantino film.
Quentin Tarantino’s rise to legendary fame began with his first film, Reservoir Dogs (1992), and was further propelled by his second film, Pulp Fiction (1994). Since the release of the first two films, Tarantino continued to release several films that would become classics or cult favorites– The Kill Bill Series, Jackie Brown, and Inglourious Basterds.
Looking at the influence and impact of Quentin Tarantino’s work in pop culture, you’ll notice that almost every film that he’d made in his career has a niche, a tag line, a unique element that separates it from the rest of his work and from the rest of Hollywood films out there. Here’s a look at the evidence of Tarantino’s influence in pop culture – fan-made posters that were inspired by the films he created:

Tarantino’s films are known for different trademark elements recurring within his films – Mexican stand-offs, the trunk shot, and melee weapons. He’s also known to appear in cameo roles in his own movies, much like Alfred Hitchcock in his films. As evidenced by strong references to old films, Tarantino’s works reflect his deep love for the motion picture and his uncanny pop culture sensibility.
Kill Bill Series
Quentin Tarantino’s style involves violence and a different sense of humor. He references the past films that inspired him and draws his creativity from a mash-up of different genres – Spaghetti Westerns, Film Noir, Grindhouse (B-movies, exploitation films, etc.), and Kung-Fu. Many of these influences can be seen in his films – Kill Bill Series (Kung-Fu), Inglourious Basterds (Spaghetti Western), Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs (Film Noir), and Jackie Brown and Death Proof (Grindhouse).
Although many of the elements in his films have been used or seen before, Quentin Tarantino has a natural talent to mix and mash things together and deliver them where he wants them, or where the audience least expects them. Regardless of what the critics and pundits says, Quentin Tarantino will still be out there, scheming and planning his next big caper.
