Everything Is A Remix

Quentin Tarantino a American film maker is a screenwriter, producer, director and actor. Quentin Tarantino has made many hit movies over the years such as, Reservoir Dogs (1993), Pulp Fiction (1994), Death Proof  (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Kill Bill (2003), Django Unchained (2013) and countless others. Quentin Tarantino has made such hit movies by taking the movies that inspire him and using some of the same shots and cinematography from other films. For example,Quentin Tarantino film Kill Bill uses shots from Game of Death (1978), Samurai Fiction (1998), Once Upon A Time In The West (1968), Death Rides A Horse (1967), Lady Snowbloody (1973), Deep Red (1975), City Of Living Dead (1980) and many more. Quentin Tarantino uses his inspirational scenes from these films to his advantages and to better his own work in the film industry.

If you aren't a film buff you probably wouldn't notice the similarities between these movies but in the video it shows how Quentin Tarantino used certain scenes from each movie. Some people might consider this stealing or even plagiarism but if you look at it that way then there would be no room for artistic interpretation. If something works why change it. I believe that Quentin Tarantino did a great job with using his inspiration and using that in Kill Bill.
