04 Great Posters from Quentin Tarantino Films

Quentin Tarantino has been one of the greatest film directors of all time. He is a master maker and an inspirational figure to this generation. He reached the peak of cinematic excellence from being a video store clerk with crazy knowledge about the history of cinema. His films like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and two volumes of Kill Bill instantly influenced the pop culture of our times. Posters of Tarantino films been a big part of that influence. Tarantino is releasing his eighth film 'The Hateful Eight' on this Christmas, which also had some very good posters. 

On the occasion of Tarantino's new release The Poster World brings to you four of the best posters from Quentin Tarantino films.

1. Pulp Fiction (1994)
Copyright- Miramax
Pulp Fiction created a cultural phenomena at the time of it's release and still regarded as one of the pop culture icon of our times. Poster of this film been highly discussed for a last two decades. Many interpretations and explanations given. But in truth this poster is a sheer classic. It can not get better than this. This is highly inspired by Film Noir as Uma Thurman is lying in low light with a seductive femme-fatale style, her hand is on a cigarette and a gun is in front of her. Look at the poster paper, it looks damaged; fonts are pulpy and everything about the background color is bit cheap. A stylistic masterwork!

TPW Rating- 5/5

2. Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003)
Copyright- Miramax
This is a simple cover compared to Pulp Fiction. Background covered by deep yellow, obviously similar to the costume Thurman is wearing. A samurai sword covering almost half of the poster and it tells where this all is going. Fonts of the poster are also cool.

TPW Rating- 4.5/5
3. Death Proof (2007)
Copyright- Dimension Films
Through his filmography Tarantino has always given some kind of homage to particular film or film genres. Death Proof was a homage to the 70s' films on car chasing and exploitation. It released with another film, directed by Robert Rodriguez, named Planet Terror. But this poster came out solo. Poster's color has a 60s' or 70s' look. Fonts and figures also have same characteristics.Classic example of a classic film poster!

TPW Rating- 5/5 
4. Inglorious Basterds (2009)
Copyright- The Weinstein Company and Universal Picture
Nazi killing basterds are back! First of all this is not the main poster of the film. This poster only depict Brad Pitt standing on the dead bodies of multiple Nazi soldiers. The idea seems brutal but this is what Tarantino is all about. He is the guy who can make violence aesthetically awesome. Fonts are also quite cool.

TPW Rating- 4.5/5
