In homage to Quentin Tarantino, this article will be done in a non-liner fashion, so here is end of the article. Hope you enjoyed all the amazing connections in the Quentin Tarantino Film universe… just kidding.
Quentin Tarantino is widely regarded as one of the greatest filmmakers, writers and directors of all time. He has created cult classics, critically acclaimed independent films and commercially successful blockbusters. He is known for having a unique storytelling style, which usually incorporates non-liner storylines, graphic violence and profanity. He is also known for working in several different genres, such as, Martial Arts, Spaghetti Westerns, Crime, Comedy, Mystery and Horror. He also likes to combine genres.
After years of speculation, Tarantino revealed that his films all take place within the same-shared universe, similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However unlike the MCU, characters don’t crossover from film to film. Often, his films will share similar themes and motifs. There are several mind-blowing connections in his films; some are really obvious while others are easy to miss. These include character connections, shared products and some really cool events. The 'Shared Universe' features all of his incredible films: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. The shared universe also includes films he has written but did not direct, which are: True Romance, Natural Born Killers and From Dusk Till Dawn. The only film not a part of this is the 1997 Blaxploitation film Jackie Brown, which was an adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel, Rum Punch. Here is a look at 15 Amazing Connections in the Quentin Tarantino Shared Film Universe.

1 Mia Wallace & The Bride - Pulp Fiction (1994) Kill Bill (2003/2004)
Pulp Fiction is considered to be Tarantino’s breakthrough movie. The film starred an ensemble cast, which included, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman. Kill Bill is a Martial Arts film and Spaghetti Western, which revolved around The Bride, Beatrix Kiddo. It starred Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and David Carradine. Obviously, a common connection between the two films is Uma Thurman. She was universally praised for her roles as Mia Wallace and Beatrix Kiddo. The two characters have something else in common. In Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega takes Mia out for dinner on the orders of his boss. She reveals that she is an actress and once appeared in a failed TV pilot, Fox Force. She goes on to describe the series and says, “There was a blonde, she was the leader. The Japanese Fox was a Kung Fu master. The black girl was a demolition expert. The French Fox’s specialty was s*x. The character I played, was the deadliest woman in the world with a knife.” It appears that she’s describing Kill Bill, which is a movie within the Tarantino Film Universe. It’s possible that Mia plays The Bride within the Universe. However, it's not clear if Fox Force is Kill Bill or if Fox Force was adapted to the big screen. Maybe fans like Vic Vega and Alabama started a fan petition to get the series made into a film.
