Quentin Tarantino is definitely one of the world's most creative and innovative directors. While his visual style is pretty unique, that doesn't mean it's totally original. Tarantino is famous for including images, songs, and choreography from other films in his movies as an means of paying homage to what inspires him most.

YouTuber Jacob T. Swinney created this awesome video which shows Tarantino's work side-by-side with the clips from the movies that influenced him:

I almost can't believe Tarantino was able to reference over 30 films just between Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained.

Here are a few of my personal favorites:

City on Fire / Reservoir Dogs

Django / Reservoir Dogs

8 1/2 / Pulp Fiction

Black Sunday / Kill Bill: Vol 1

Gone in 60 Seconds / Kill Bill: Vol 1

The Searchers / Kill Bill: Vol 2

A Professional Gun / Django Unchained

Being able to know what drew you to your passion and then pay tribute to it, while still keeping things fresh, is a fantastic thing. Just another reason why Tarantino is one of the greats!
