Flashback: A look at a few of Tarantino’s older films.

Less than two weeks into its theatrical run, Django Unchained is already well on its way to becoming Quentin Tarantino’s biggest hit ever, at least in North America; it has already outgrossed all but two of his films, and could very well pass Inglourious Basterds, the current champ, by next weekend — especially if it gets a box-office boost when the Oscar nominations are announced this Thursday.

I have not had a chance to review the film myself yet, but I figured this was as good a time as any to re-post the few articles on Tarantino films that I have written over the years. Two — the reviews of Four Rooms (1995) and From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), the latter of which was not directed by Tarantino but was written by him and co-starred him — date back to my student-newspaper days. I also devoted a few paragraphs to Kill Bill (2003-2004) in a Books & Culture article on revenge movies, plus I reviewed Inglourious Basterds (2009) for the now-defunct BC Christian News.
