Quentin Tarantino’s selection of movies on Netflix. This has been a successful way of allowing the younger generation to view movies that Tarantino produced in the 90’s.

Quentin Tarantino is a man of many arts. Not only does he direct fantastic films, he also writes the screenplays for them, produces them and plays minor roles in them. His films are highly praised for his beautiful portrayal of violence, intense action, the use of pop culture and extreme language earning him a 4.5/5 as a director.

His film career began with a heist story titled Reservoir Dogs about a group of professional thieves who are all connected through one boss. The film takes a big twist when their heist goes south and one of the men is discovered to be an undercover cop. His next release was Pulp Fiction. This movie was pure art. Similar to Reservoir Dogs, it blew up and instantly became a hit. Both movies set the stage for Tarantino to move his way up in the world of Hollywood and created his group of followers who were fanatics for his cinema-violence.

Tarantino pushes the boundaries with his films. The language is a combination of racial slurs, curse words and Samuel L. Jackson, who stars in 6 of his 8 films, compulsively using the F-word. Nearly every movie, someone’s head explodes and their brains are splattered very graphically on the screen. In his new movie, The Hateful Eight, Ms. Daisy Domergue has her face painted with pieces of human skull and brain parts following a bloody vomit shower.

The cinematography, angles, acting, storyline, plot and beautifully written scripts never disappoint. Tarantino’s all-star casts are always astounding. The characters are strong and show a lot of growth throughout his films.

Quentin Tarantino is for sure a hall-of-famer in the film director world. He produces spectacular films, is a great actor and a good person.
