From his interesting casting choices to the clever homages he hides in plain sight, Quentin Tarantino is without a doubt one of the greatest directors of all-time. Tarantino’s film career officially started in the 1980s when he wrote and directed My Best Friend’s Birthday, a screenplay that would eventually become the basis for the 1993 romantic crime film True Romance. Since then, the Knoxville native has evolved into one of the most recognized and admired directors in Hollywood.
“Movies are not about the weekend that they’re released, and in the grand scheme of things, that’s probably the most unimportant time of a film’s life.” ~ Quentin Tarantino

9. Grindhouse: Death Proof (2007)
Synopsis: Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) is a professional body double who likes to take unsuspecting women for deadly drives in his free time. He has doctored his car for maximum impact; when Mike purposely causes wrecks, the bodies pile up while he walks away with barely a scratch. The insane Mike may be in over his head, though, when he targets a tough group of female friends, including real-life stuntwoman Zoe Bell (who served as Uma Thurman’s double in “Kill Bill”), who plays herself.
Starring: Eli Roth, Rose McGowan, Kurt Russell, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Bell, Vanessa Ferlito, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Bruce Willis, Jordan Ladd, Tracie Thoms, Josh Brolin, and Danny Trejo
