In addition, these films are known to combine several different cinema styles, ranging from the martial arts movie to the spaghetti western.
Tarantino also does a great job of taking themes that may start our somewhat standard and takes them in strange, new directions.

With the help of Max Cherry, she seeks to find a way to keep all the smuggled money and leave her problems behind.
Bounty hunting can be a tough job. There are no laws dictating that other bounty hunters can't try to cash in on a criminal you put the work into capturing. You may even find that your life is placed in danger in the process.

Revenge can be such a satisfying thing, especially when it's enacted against one of the most horrible groups in history.
In this film, Officer Also Raine seeks out the perfect men for a special force of Jewish soldiers with their own unique ways of handling Nazi soldiers, which includes special rewards for those willing to not only kill off the soldiers, but also remove their scalps.
Working alongside a well-known actress who suffered the loss of her family due to the Nazi soldiers. As she guides them through the ladder, the group faces challenge after challenge until things get tricky.
If you're familiar with Tarantino movies, you'll know it's worth waiting for the end.
What might a stunt man with a magically "Death Proof" car do in his free time? We would be lying if we told you he's not using that power for anything nefarious.
Tracking down various groups of women, the charming Stuntman Mike manages to have an easy time gaining attention of the women he chooses, and they pay heavily for it in the end.
When Mike comes across Zoe, Kim and Abernathy, he may find that he's not quite as invincible as he once believed. Starring Kurt Russell, Vanessa Ferlito, Rosario Dawson and more, this movie is truly one wild ride. Horror fans can also keep a look out for Eli Roth!
Kill Bill is a unique mix including tones from a variety of different kinds of cinema, including westerns, martial arts films and naturally, grindhouse.
As a woman known as "The Bride" is on her way to happily-ever-after, she's taken down by her previous boss and boyfriend, the infamous Bill. Expecting her to be dead, Bill and his assassination squad go on about their lives.

You may be starting to notice a running theme within this list. Tarantino is certainly known for creating films with a lot of satisfying revenge. We've seen revenge against those who have personally wronged a character, revenge against one of the most hated groups in history, and now revenge against another terrible group, Southern slaveholders.
Starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz, this is a fantastic ride alongside an ex-slave and a bounty hunter in which we get to see revenge taken on those who treat humans like animals. If nothing else, you're sure to enjoy the ride as Django takes his revenge.
Pulp Fiction has become a well-loved piece due to the ability of Tarantino to weave together several different plots into one fantastic story. A pair of hitmen, their boss and his wife, a couple of thieves and a boxer past his prime all play vital roles in this story, though they may seem unrelated.
This is also a film that includes some big names, such as Christopher Walken, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackson and much more! There's certainly a reason why this film has such a following. If there's any Tarantino film you should absolutely check out, this is going to be the one!
