A writer should have this little voice inside of you saying, Tell the truth. Reveal a few secrets here.

As a viewer, the minute I start getting confused, I check out of the movie. Emotionally, I’m severed.

I couldn’t spell anything. I couldn’t remember anything, but I could go to a movie and I knew who starred in it, who directed it, everything. 

I like it when somebody tells me a story, and I actually really feel that that’s becoming like a lost art in American cinema. 

I loved history because to me, history was like watching a movie.

I want to top expectations. I want to blow you away.

I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learnt some great dialogue.

I’m a historian in my own mind. 

Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Movies are my religion and God is my patron. I’m lucky enough to be in the position where I don’t make movies to pay for my pool. When I make a movie, I want it to be everything to me; like I would die for it.

Sure, Kill Bill’s a violent movie. But it’s a Tarantino movie. You don’t go to see Metallica and ask the f*****s to turn the music down.

Violence is one of the most fun things to watch.

2009′s Inglorious Basterds came just two years after Grindhouse and Death Proof. The bad news for Tarantino fans is the wait this time around is going to be a total of at least four years. The good news is that Quentin currently has two projects in the pipeline:

Django Unchained

Tarantino is the writer and director of this 2013 drama/western. Filming is slated to begin in fall of this year. Will Smith is currently labeled as this film’s lead. A review from WeGotThisCovered.com provides an overview of the film’s script.

Django (Smith) is a slave. After being purchased by traders, his story up to this point is told through flashbacks. The story then moves on to how Django is freed from slavery and follows the path he continues down. While the review divulges several more paragraphs of information about the script, I don’t want to give away any additional information about the movie. It is worth noting that the review says that the last thirty minutes of the film should be one wild ride! Based on just the script, the review’s rating of this revenge movie is a 7.5.

Kill Bill: Vol. 3

This 2014 film comes a decade after Vol.2 was released. Uma Thurman will reprise her role as The Bride. The film will also feature the return of Daryl Hannah as Elle Driver. A rumored addition to the cast is Julie Dreyfus as Sofie Fatale.

For fans who don’t want to wait until at least 2014 to see Uma Thurman on the big screen, they should be able to see her in 2012′s Savages. This film is also slated to star Tarantino alum John Travolta.

Quentin Tarantino was born in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 27, 1963. Since directing his first movie in 1987, Tarantino has directed, written, produced and acted in over fifteen different Hollywood films.

Quentin Tarantinos unfinished first film, “My Best Friends Birthday”, was produced in 1987 while he was working at a Californian video rental store. Tarantino co-wrote the script with co-worker Craig Hamann, and the film itself was shot on black-and-white film. The film, which ran for 70 minutes in duration, followed a young man whose attempts to provide his best friend with a memorable birthday repeatedly failed. A fire destroyed most of the film, and only about 36 minutes of the original film remains.

Tarantinos movies are often focused on the theme of crime and action. His 1992 film, Reservoir Dogs, followed the events surrounding a botched diamond robbery, his 1994 film Pulp Fiction depicted the lives of Los Angeles criminals whilst his Kill Bill franchise featured frequent bouts of violence.

Tarantinos latest two films, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds, have both been nominated for a variety of awards, although the latter has generally been better-received. The script for Inglourious Basterds was originally written in 1998, before the release of the Kill Bill franchise. The plot for the film follows the plans for two separate fictional Hitler assassination plots. Display of Nazi insignias is illegal in Germany unless the insignias are used in works of art, so instances of the swastika on the films promotional web site were removed by the films production company, although the film itself was not.

there are many people who have won awards for great films and productions however in the case of Quentin Tarantino you might like to note for somebody that is an expert in alternative film making he has certainly won many awards. Quentin Tarantino could be said to have a slightly warped sense of humor however if you were to ask him or any of his friends and colleges they might agree that he has a very warped sense. This is not an insult by any means as it is this individuality which makes Quentin and his movies so great. Born in 1963 Quentin has been designing movies since he was very young and now with the backing of Hollywood studios and his own personal fortune he is able to make these dream movies into a reality. Lucky for the fans of his work there is still plenty more action to come which will also mean that he is likely to be awarded more too.

A list of some of the famous films that he has produced starts in the year 1987 when he produced his first main stream movie designed for the big screen. My Best Friends Birthday was an interesting film which starred the director as one of the lead roles where his character went out of his way to make a great birthday for his best friend however everything that could go wrong did. Reservoir Dogs was another triumph at the movies with a great cast and crew who did wonders for the film. this film was produced in 1992 and was the first film that you could recognize Quentin’s twist in film making. Two years later Pulp Fiction was made which was another perfect example of his efforts to make a very original film. the movie itself did not go in a straight time line as scenes cut from one character to the next. The Kill Bill series was another big hit with his fans and another movie which had many talented actors and actresses in. in 2009 his latest film Inglorious Basterds was released at the cinema which was again another great Tarantino film.
