Quentin Tarantino's Quotes

  • [at the MTV Movie Awards 1994 as he won Best Picture for Pulp Fiction (1994)] Pop quiz, hotshot: you go to the awards ceremonies all year long; you keep losing to Forrest Gump (1994)! It's really annoying the hell out of you - what do you do? You go to the MTV Awards!
  • [on "rival" director Guy Ritchie marrying Madonna] I guess I'll have to marry Elvis Presley to get even.
  • If I've made it a little easier for artists to work in violence, great! I've accomplished something.
  • When people ask me if I went to film school, I tell them, "No, I went to films".
  • [on using surfing music, when hating the surfing culture] It's like surf music, I've always like loved that but, for me, I don't know what surf music has to do with surf boards. To me, it just sounds like rock and roll, even Morricone music. It sounds like rock and roll Spaghetti Western music, so that's how I kind of laid it in.

  4. Claims that Tarantino acted in the film Dawn of the Dead (1978) or the film King Lear (1987) are incorrect.

  6. Collects old board games having to do with television series like I Dream of Jeannie (1965), The Dukes of Hazzard (1979), The A-Team (1983), etc.
  7. In all of his original screenplays, the name of a police detective named Scagnetti is referred to at least once. Most of the times, the particular scene was cut out of the final versions.
  8. He was an unlisted screenwriter for Tony Scott's Crimson Tide (1995). He was brought in to punch up the script's dialogue, reportedly adding the Silver Surfer scene, submarine movie scene, racist horse monologue among other polishes.
  9. He delayed production of Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) for several months when Uma Thurman became pregnant. He refused to recast her, as he had written the role specifically for her, based on an idea the two conceived on the set of Pulp Fiction (1994).
  10. Is a huge fan of The Three Stooges.
  11. His parents are Tony Tarantino and Connie McHugh. His father is from New York, and Quentin's paternal grandparents, Dominic James Tarantino and Elizabeth Jean Salvaggio, had Italian ancestry.

  12. Although he uses both elements in his films, he strongly detests violence and drugs.
  13. Is listed in the acknowledgments of actor Ethan Hawke's novel, "Ash Wednesday".
  14. Two of Tarantino's favorite films are Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) (which he owns a 35mm copy of) and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), which he references in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003).
  15. President of the 'Official Competition' jury at the 57th Cannes International Film Festival in 2004.
  16. He considers Ride in the Whirlwind (1966) one of the finest Westerns ever made, even writing an extensive article about it for Sight & Sound magazine titled A Rare Sorrow. The article was featured in the Pulp Fiction (1994) Special Edition DVD as an extra and also appears in Paul A. Woods' Film Geek Files (pgs. 129-132). Interestingly, the director of Ride in the Whirlwind, Monte Hellman, was the executive producer of Reservoir Dogs (1992).
  17. Good friends with Robert Rodriguez and Kristin Chenoweth.
  18. He has called Uma Thurman his muse.
