I think it would make more sense to put the ENTIRE filmography on a different page, or place it all on this page. It seems silly to list half of his filmography when there is a page dedicated to it. DanielDPeterson (talk) 16:17, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

I think readers would expect some easy listing of the 8 films here, but I guess I'm confused when you say "half". The article Quentin Tarantino filmography just has more detail into the films, like which award nominations or wins they received. Would you want to move other credits there, like for acting or producing?--Nkgal (talk) 20:15, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Samuel L Jackson

Hey I'm pretty sure Sam Jackson was not in 'From Dusk till Dawn', and he WAS in 'Kill Bill'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:19, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

On which films did Quen Tarrantino have final cut privilege?????????? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:09, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Django Unchained article

I have started an article based on Django Unchained here. Any help would be largely appreciated. --KЯĀŽΨÇÉV13 02:23, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Cool, watchlisted. We could make this into a DYK. The Interior (Talk) 02:54, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Quentin Tarantino's Pic

I believe jay leno's pic shown instead of Quentin Tarantino's in the top right side of the page

Paragraph praises Tarantino

There appears to be bias in the first paragraph of the influences and style of film making paragraph. It uses language that praises Tarantino and is worded non-scholarly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:43, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Size of Django paragraph?

I certainly want to have Django Unchained be a part of the Tarantino article, but there is more about it here than there is over on the Django Unchained article. Anyone have any thoughts on moving some of this?

Collapsed list

In 2011, production began on Django Unchained, about the revenge of a slave on his former master. The film stemmed from Tarantino's desire to produce a spaghetti western set in America's Deep South; Tarantino has called the proposed style "a southern",[18] stating that he wanted "to do movies that deal with America's horrible past with slavery and stuff but do them like spaghetti westerns, not like big issue movies. I want to do them like they're genre films, but they deal with everything that America has never dealt with because it's ashamed of it, and other countries don't really deal with because they don't feel they have the right to".[18] Tarantino finished the script on April 26, 2011, and handed in the final draft to The Weinstein Company.[19] Agency William Morris Endeavor reported Christoph Waltz was cast to play a German bounty hunter,[20] with Stacey Sher producing. Although Will Smith and Idris Elba were heavily rumored to be up for the title role, Jamie Foxx has since been confirmed to play Django.[21] Tarantino regular Samuel L. Jackson will play Stephen, a wise, proud house slave. Leonardo DiCaprio has also been officially cast in the role of Calvin Candie, the primary antagonist in the film. Kevin Costner had been cast as Ace Woody, a "vile and sadistic trainer of slaves who are forced to fight in death matches for a plantation owner (DiCaprio)" before he later dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, and has been replaced by Kurt Russell.[22] Kerry Washington has been cast as Broomhilda, the "long-suffering slave wife of Django."[23] Other cast members include Dennis Christopher as Candie family lawyer Leonide 'Leo' Moguy, Laura Cayouette as Candie's sister, Lara Lee Candie-Fitzwilly, M.C. Gainey and Tom Savini as Big John and Ellis Brittle, two of the slave owners who separate Django and Broomhilda, Anthony LaPaglia and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Australian brothers, Jano and an unnamed character, respectively,[24] who encounter Django while escorting slaves to a fight.[25][26] However, Gordon-Levitt has not fully committed to the film, due to possible scheduling issues,[27][28][29][30] and Gerald McRaney and Michael K. Williams in unknown roles. Tarantino-collaborator RZA was cast as a slave named Thadeus. According to, Sacha Baron Cohen was cast in the role as gambler Scotty Harmony who wishes to purchase Django's wife from Calvin Candie.[31] Reportedly, Tarantino is also interested in including Lady Gaga in the film to some degree.[32] The film is said to be inspired by the 1966 film Django, directed by Sergio Corbucci. James Remar is also involved in the film. The film is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2012.

Yeah, it is on the DU article, so it should be deleted from here now. JoshuSasori (talk) 01:57, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Frequent Collaborators

Omar Doom is in Death Proof and in Inglourious Basterds, but he isn't on the Frequent Collaborators list. Is this an over sight or is it on purpose? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:02, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

"Influences and style of film making" section reads as original research

Without any citations, the following is a set of opinions or conclusions drawn by a viewer of Tarantino's films, and thus is original research:

Tarantino has created a unique style that is all his own, combining styles from his favorite genres into brand new mash-ups, making him one of the more recent true Auteurs. He expresses his films exactly from his point of view, for example, in Kill Bill he combined Sonny Chiba-style kung fu films and spaghetti westerns. Tarantino is the first to tell people that he is heavily inspired, in plot and style, by his favorite movies; and manages to pay homage to his favorites, yet still create a film that has a unique feel to it. He frequently employs a retro sensibility to his films, placing the viewers in the old Saturday matinee movies or the 70's exploitation films. At the same time, he adds personal touches, such as his frequent use of foot-centered shots. Tarantino’s love of women's feet finds its way into the majority of his films. His body of work features unique humor, action, interpersonal touch, and fast-paced, pop culture-laden dialogue.

I suggest either adding citations for the opinions here, or removing all of it. JoshuSasori (talk) 04:38, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

I agree. Plenty of secondary sources are available for commentary on Tarantino's style, but the section you've highlighted should be deleted whether a properly sourced replacement is substituted for it or not. Exok (talk) 07:43, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Thirded. Let's work on a better, sourced summary of style, and axe this rather amateurish paragraph. The Interior (Talk) 07:51, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Well I have just removed it and someone else can work on making a better version. JoshuSasori (talk) 14:03, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

TV Work

Wasn't Tarantino in Alias? I believe he was in a few episodes, notable 'The Box, Parts 1 & 2' from Season 1, as well as another episode from the third season — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:04, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Tarantino universs

I can't believe there's not a single mention of his two movie universes, "Realer than Real World" and "Movie Movie", while he described them himself. Almost all of the films he directed and some he wrote are in one universe or the other. I might work on it some time. Klow (talk) 18:38, 24 July 2012 (UTC)


  • Strong Remove or Adapt I vote for the influences part in his infobox to be either removed, a hidden message added to say that influences must be sourced, or something because it's getting out of hand. There's no way that that puny reference there has all those directors mentioned; I've already checked. What say youse... Lighthead þ 03:49, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
The video quoted is 53 minutes long so it could well support the influences given. I haven't checked it all out though. JoshuSasori (talk) 02:02, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Takeshi Kitano is one of his biggest influences: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:32, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Personal life

Replaced BBC Channel 4... with Britain's Channel 4. Channel 4 is a commercially funded UK television channel and is not affiliated with the BBC. User2346 (talk) 13:36, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Sin City

He directed a scene in Sin City. Surely that should count in his filmography+frequent collabarators. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:25, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Hostel: Part III

Where does it says that Tarantino is executive producer for Hostel: Part III? He wasn't credited in the film or IMDB. I will remove the title from Quentin Tarantino filmography if I don't get any sources about it. --LucasHammar (talk) 12:57, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

While I was here making my little contribution I decided to look around for a source for you as well. You are correct as far as I can tell. I can only find sources saying Tarantino and Roth had nothing to do with the film. Took me about 2 minutes to find this one at The Independent . --MisanthropicMan (talk) 21:23, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Racial Epithets

According to a 1995 Premiere magazine article, actor Denzel Washington also confronted Tarantino on his usage of racial slurs in his pictures, but mentioned that Tarantino was a "fine artist."

Sorry I am new to this could someone please put this link for the source of the above text? Took me a while to actually find that article and current source is a link to a picture of Denzel Washington that doesn't even work.--MisanthropicMan (talk) 21:48, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Deletion of recurring collaborators table

I just deleted the recurring collaborators table per WP:No original research. The table as a whole makes the assertion that Tarantino limits himself to a small set of actors for his films. I looked for a book source that confirmed this assertion and instead I found Jeffrey Dawson's book Quentin Tarantino: The Cinema of Cool in which he quotes producer Lawrence Bender on page 154 saying that "there are a lot of actors who are interested in working with Quentin and we did get to talk to a lot of really wonderful actors. What we were trying to do [with Pulp Fiction] was find the group that really made the most sense because it's an ensemble piece." This appears to contradict the idea that Tarantino draws from a limited group of actors.

What is needed to keep a table like this is to hang it on a reliable source telling the reader that Tarantino has a limited set of collaborators. After that, WP:CALC allows us to tell the reader how many times each person has appeared. Binksternet (talk) 22:25, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Not appropriate. No input in the section above. – S. Rich (talk) 05:27, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Not your call. I am uninterested in having this discussion in three articles at once, so I've centralized it. Remember, you are not an admin. MilesMoney (talk) 05:30, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
The way you couched the dispute at NORN is an affront to neutrality. Binksternet (talk) 05:38, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
