has spliced together a five-and-a-half minute supercut of every (or almost
every) pop culture reference in Tarantino's films, and they've gone to the trouble of putting them all in chronological order. Wow. They've also added a decade counter to the bottom right-hand corner of the clip, making it easier to spot the eras from which the director draws most heavily. After zooming through the first six decades of the 20th century (with heavy reliance on clips from Inglourious Basterds
), the counter moves like molasses through the 60's, 70's and 80's referencing pet subjects like Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Star Trek
, The Partridge Family and my personal favourite, Flock of Seagulls (used as an insult, of course and uttered by Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction
While Django Unchained, Tarantino's most recent effort, is missing from the cut, everything else he's directed gets some play. There are also lines from True Romance (directed by Tony Scott) and From Dusk Till Dawn (helmed by Robert Rodriguez), both of which were penned by Tarantino. Check it out below:
Ever wonder just how often writer/director Quentin Tarantino drops pop culture references into his films' dialogue? If you're a fan, then you've probably already guessed that the answer is "a lot," but if you wanted something a little more specific, you're in luck.
