Hollywood filmmaker Quentin Tarantino celebrated his 58th birthday on Saturday. Tarantino is one of Hollywood’s most famous people and his style is considered unique but without any moral obligation, so to speak. His films have B-movie tropes, and yet there’s nothing schlocky about it. It’s just high quality cinema.
Tarantino’s films are known for long stretches of time where nothing happens except people talking, and because he’s so good at creating engaging dialogue, they’re never boring. The final act of Tarantino’s films is a masterclass in cinema, so on his birthday we decided to check out five of his best endings.
Here are five best Quentin Tarantino movie endings:
Once upon a time in hollywood
Tarantino’s most recent film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, was also an elegant recreation of late 1960s Hollywood with pristine attention to detail. But it was the end of the movie – especially the last fifteen minutes – that blew up all the rest of the water. The Manson family members and potential killers arrive to kill Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio, and stumble upon an extremely high cliff stand (Brad Pitt), felt as deserved as without the build-up.
Another cathartic conclusion to Tarantino’s film career, Django Unchained asks Django (Jamie Foxx) to avenge the executioners and slave owners of his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) who killed his friend Schultz (Christoph Waltz). The film ends with Django and Broomhilda riding together.
At the end of Inglourious Basterds, Brad Pitt’s Lieutenant Raine just can’t bring himself to spare Waltz ‘Landa. Like his previous Nazi victims, Raine carves a swastika on Landa’s forehead. While it’s hard to watch, viewers just can’t help but be happy after all of the Nazi officials’ atrocities against Jews.
One of Tarantino’s best films and sadly the least watched, Jackie Brown leaves titular heroine Pam Grier with the rest of Samuel L. Jackson’s Ordell Robbie money. She asks Max (Robert Forster) to come but he politely refuses. She walks away. It’s a quiet, low-key ending that’s great while being different from most Tarantino movies.
Proof of death
Serial killer Mike McKay (Kurt Russell) finally gets his role after murdering several young women at the end of Death Proof. He is beaten with a pipe but escapes. After chasing him, the women push his car off the road. And then they beat him to death. It is both horrible and satisfying.
