From murderous Japanese school girls to Nazi-huntin' rednecks, Quentin Tarantino has created some of the most memorable characters to hit the silver screen. Although Tarantino has only been involved with a handful of movies, he’s made a big impact on movie history by unleashing the crazy people inside his head.
Among others, he's given us a military man with a unique hiding place for a gold watch, an undercover cop entangled in a botched heist, and a zipper-masked deviant named The Gimp. And that's only the beginning.
“Inglourious Basterds,” opening Aug. 21, introduces a new crop of Tarantino characters, including a super sweaty Hitler and a baseball bat-wielding “Bear Jew.” As a tribute to Quentin's twisted brain, we present 10 great Tarantino characters.
