Film- The Tarantino Scenes you need to see

Sunday, 12 October 2014

I must confess. I'm a Tarantino-aholic. The first time I saw Pulp Fiction I didn't even do the usual one eye on my instagram feed one on the TV, I just watched. Whether it's his style of directing, writing or usually hilarious cameos, Quentin Tarantino can make damn good films. I think you should watch them all, but I thought I'd do a little post of some of my favourite scenes.

Pulp Fiction - Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega.   

Well, to be honest you're missing out if you don't see the whole film, but the scene titled 'Vincent Vega and Marcellus Wallace's wife' is arguably the films best and most iconic. From the moment the pair pull up at the incredible 1950's diner, you are hooked on the scene. There is so much tension but it is balanced by comedic moments such as John Travolta reluctantly dancing compared to Mia's coke-infused enthusiasm. I won't ruin what happens in case you haven't seen it, but the scene finale is arguably the best in cinema.

Inglorious Basterds - Operation Kino.

Again, I don't want to give any spoilers. Inglorious Basterds is one of my favourite films of, like, ever. I don't really know why, but it definitely has something to do with this scene. Or Brad Pitt's hilarious Italian accent. The dialogue in this scene is genius, it's in sub titles so you got to read fast to get it all but it's amazing. The film is basically an alternative WWII in Tarantino's mind, and this scene is essential to how the war will end, and the results of this 'operation' are....well....mixed.

Django Unchained - Leo arrives.

I think Leo in a Tarantino film was always going to be good. And it is. Playing a malicious plantation owner, leo takes to the character of a villain. And he does it so well, not even breaking character when he slices his hand open after breaking glass on a table.

From Dusk Till Dawn.

I adore the first half of this film, admittedly the second half unexplainable. It follows two criminals who hijack a family's vacation to Mexico, but in a Tarantino style, who also has a leading role. Also starring Juliette Lewis, the movie is wonderfully bizarre.

Do you guys have a favourite?
