The 25 Greatest Quentin Tarantino characters

Once upon a time (no pun intended) I was a big Quentin Tarantino fan now you cannot get to watch any of his new films (which includes Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood) and last few I've seen (Django Unchained & The Hateful 8) were a mess tbh. But since I am bored, I found another list (from Yardbarker via MSN) on the Greatest 25 QT’s characters. Overall, the list is okay but there are some great characters missing from this list that you’ll definitely hate.

19. Mr. Pink ("Reservoir Dogs")

What they say about the character: "[Mr.] Pink (Steve Buscemi) tends to be the comic relief, mostly through his wise cracks, in his dark, neo-noir heist film. He's not necessarily a main character but certainly leaves a memorable mark."

10. O-Ren Ishii ("Kill Bill: Volume 1; Kill Bill: Volume 2")

What they say about the character: "O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) should not be labeled as "the other woman" in the "Kill Bill" films. In a lot of ways, O-Ren's story is as intriguing as that of the main female protagonist herself. She's independent but haunted by a past she's trying to earn some sort of vengeance for."

8. Jackie Brown ("Jackie Brown")

What they say about the character: "The role revived Pam Grier's career, getting back to her blaxploitation heyday. Jackie Brown is a no nonsense woman looking for a little excitement in her life. So why not become a drug courier? Even though the movie is an adaptation of Elmore Leaonard's novel "Rum Punch," the character of Jackie on screen is real, liberating and often described as among the most mature of any of Taratino's lead roles."

5. Col. Hans Landa ("Inglourious Basterds")

What they say about the character: "Known as "The Jew Hunter," Landa is the devil in an SS uniform. He's full of himself and does not care who he steps on to get what he wants to succeed. It's all made possible and brought to life by the uber-talented Christoph Waltz, who won an Academy Award for the role."

2. The Bride/Beatrix Kiddo ("Kill Bill: Volume 1; Kill Bill: Volume 2")

What they say about the character: "Beatrix (Uma Thurman) is as tough as they come in the true sense of the word yet manages to pull off her job requirement with confidence and — if possible — grace. Definitely someone we want on our side."

(wonder why I have these characters here?)
