One can’t talk about Quentin Tarantino without talking about the movies, comics, TV shows, music and more that he loves. Even Quentin Tarantino himself can’t talk about his own movies without talking about the movies, comics, TV shows and music that he loves. And now, many of the references he’s peppered into his films to date (except “Django Unchained“) have been conveniently distilled into one video for your viewing pleasure.
The guys over at CollegeHumor have compiled “Every Pop Culture Reference From Tarantino Movies” including stuff he wrote, but didn’t direct like “True Romance” or “From Dusk ‘Till Dawn” (though the lack of “Crimson Tide” is a glaring omission). It’s a pretty nifty spin through Tarantino’s love of golden age comics, movies and television, and it’s interesting to note the handful that show up more than once. Like it or not, his ability to wrangle them into his pictures as part of his trademark dialogue has become as much of a calling card as his prowess at merging and melding genres.
