Top 10 Tarantino Unforgettable Movie Moments

Quentin Tarantino has brought us some of the best cinema has to offer, from his plethora of masterpieces Film Probe have picked our top ten most unforgettable moments. Before you dive into our top ten, here are a few honourable mentions:

  • Pulp Fiction (1994) - Zed's Dead Baby - When Bruce Willis' Butch takes his sweet time picking a weapon before he ultimately saves Marsellus Wallace from Zed.

  • Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003) - The Whistle Scene - As Ellie Driver whistles down the hallways of the hospital as she tries to kill The Bride.

  • True Romance [Written by] (1993) - The Sicilians - The scene when Christopher Walken's Vincenzo gives a speech to Clarence's father Clifford before murdering him.

  • Pulp Fiction (1994) - The Gold Watch - Christopher Walken’s monologue as Captain Koons is pure cinema magic, a scene so simple and yet so utterly unforgettable. I think we can all agree that Waken saying “his ass” is one of Pulp Fictions greatest moments.

1. Once Upon A Time In... Hollywood (2019) “F***ing Hippies”

Quentin Tarantino, the master of revenge strikes again as we see Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton grab a flame thrower from his garden shed, he then torches a member of the Manson Family before she gets the chance to kill him - an unforgettable moment within a masterpiece of cinema.

2. Django Unchained (2012) “I am positive he dead”

One crowing moment which solidifies Django and Schultz’s unconventional relationship is when Django leads Schultz to his next bounty victims, Django also adds a new word to his vocabulary. When the blood splatters on the fresh, white cotton is an unforgettable shot for this powerful feature.

3. Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003) “Silly Rabbit”

Arguably one of the most iconic moments in cinema history is The Bride fighting the infamous Crazy 88’s, disturbingly unforgettable. One of my favourite moments is when she rips a gentleman’s eye from his head and the screen jumps into black and white, a technique Tarantino would come to use again.

4. Inglorious Bastards (2009)

“I’m gonna give you something you can’t take off”

This war movie has an abundance of unforgettable moments but one that is ingrained in our heads is when Brad Pitt’s Aldo carves a very prominent symbol on a German soldiers forehead.



5. Reservoir Dogs (1992) ‘You know what this is? It’s the worlds smallest violin’

Reservoir Dogs is unforgettable for a number of reasons, we all remember the twist at the end right? But for me, a moment that never fails to make me laugh is the opening scene when the gang are discussing tipping the waitress. Hearing a group of criminals discussing how to tip is pure genius and unforgettable.

6. The Hateful 8 (2015) “How’d you like that!’

Waiting with pure anticipation for the reveal of Daisy Domergue’s accomplice for it to be revealed as... Channing Tatum! The Hateful 8 was a tremendous film but I will never forget the shock I felt when his face appeared from the floor and when it was later blown into pieces.

7. From Dusk til Dawn (1996) His most unforgettable foot moment

If you’re aware of Tarantino’s obsession with feet then I have a surprise for you, his most unforgettable foot moment. This classic vampire tale is completely unique but watching Salma Hayek pore alcohol down her leg and foot directly into Tarantino’s mouth is something I can never forget.



8. Pulp Fiction (1994) “I don’t know, I didn’t go into burger king”

Tarantino is a genius for the small details, the minute moments which make for unforgettable storytelling. Whilst Jules and Vincent ride along they partake in small talk, Vincent discusses his travels to Europe and the two marvel over the differences of fast food chains.


9. Inglorious Bastards (2009)

‘Drie Glasse’

We couldn’t have just one moment from this iconic movie on our list! Of course, we could never forget the lip biting, anxiety inducing moment when Michael Fassbender’s English spy Archie Hicox orders three glasses in a German bar... but his deathly mistake was which fingers he used!

10. Pulp Fiction (1994)

"Oh man, I shot Marvin in the face"

Who could forget the heartbreakingly hilarious moment when poor young Marvin gets shot in the face by Vincent, by accident! Vincent and Jules then have the glamorous job of cleaning up the back of the car and trying to get rid of any Marvin thats left.
