Hateful Eight Trailer Is Here. What Tarantino Moments Do We Expect To See?

Whether you’re a longtime fan of Tarantino or you’ve only seen a handful of his famous movies, you can be sure that there’s certain moments that will always find their way into his movies. These have become his calling cards, his trademarks, and they’re exactly what we love about the guy.

Many of Tarantino’s films include some form of upward looking shot from the perspective of a character in a boot. Often time these characters aren’t in the boot of their own choice, so this can be an effective way to highlight the position they’re currently in.

The Foot Fetish

It’s become somewhat of a joke that Quentin Tarantino has a thing for feet. Every single one of his films has a close up shot of a woman’s feet, a plot point even being based on it in Inglourious Basterds.

The Dance Scene

Some of the most famous scenes in Tarantino movies are the ones where one or more characters are dancing to a well picked track. There’s something brilliant about splitting up a usually violent movie with a dance sequence.

The Car Scene

Whether it’s characters discussing Royale’s With Cheese, people shouting about not knowing what’s going on and who’s dead or Death Proof, a film which is almost entirely car scene after car scene, these stylish chances at static dialogue make their way into every Quentin Tarantino movie.

The Torture Scene

These movies are known as being fairly dark, while still containing a heavy amount of class and humour. What’s more dark than an unflinching torture scene? Reservoir Dogs easily has one of the most famous torture scenes in all of cinema history. It even combines it with the movie’s dance scene.

The Diner Scene

A staple of American life, the diner is featured heavily in a lot of Tarantino’s movies. Once again, one of the most famous scenes from Pulp Fiction is set in a diner, the entire film sandwiched by scenes set in a diner.

The Mirror Shot

Watching a reflection of an actor allows you to see how their character is reacting to a reflection of themselves. Not only does this allow for a high level of symbolism, it looks very cool.

What do you think of this list? Have I missed any of the classic Tarantino movies? Let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to The Hateful Eight or if there’s any Tarantino moments you can’t wait to see.
