SOURCES

  • QT's Lists - Quentin Tarantino loves lists. We used his lists of Coolest Movies of All Time (September 2007), Top 20 Favorite Spaghetti Westerns (and runners up), Top 20 Favorite Grindhouse Films, Top 7 exploitation movies (Cinescape Magazine), and many others.

  • QT Interviews - and we're talking about A LOT of interviews. (My favourites were his three episodes on The Rewachtables Podcast)

  • QT FIlm Fest - The Quentin Tarantino Film Festival, or QT-Fest, was a semi-annual film and multimedia event held by the Austin Film Society in Austin, Texas and attended by film director Quentin Tarantino, where he screened a selection of his favorite films using prints he own.

  • The New Beverly - Quentin Tarantino does the vast majority of the monthly programming at the New Beverly, a legendary revival cinema in Los Angeles.

  • QT Reviews - Quentin Tarantino's writings about other people's films.

  • QT Films - Quentin Tarantino pays tribute to and steals from other movies all the time. I figure he likes the movies he steals from.





  • WHY

    Film history is typically written by scholars and historians who look down at a certain kind of film. They write their essays thinking that Sergio Leone is the only Spaghetti Western director worth mentioning, that Shaft is the only Blaxploitation that matters, that Roger Corman's biggest achievement is giving Francis Ford Coppola his first job, and that The Excorcist is the only horror movie ever made.

    What a world they miss!
    A world full of gangsters, bounty hunters, nazi killers on a mission, werewolves, bikers, zombies, and a very sexy Pam Grier.

    But it's a dangerous world where you get lost easily. In order to survive you need an experienced and passionate guide...

    Since I started to let myself be guided through this world by Quinten Tarantino, I've not only seen many masterpieces I had never heard of before, I also discovered an alternative and fascinating view on the history of film (Don't expect to bump into John Ford or David Lean), and I'm very excited to share this ride with you.

    So fasten your seatbelts, and start watching !
