A screenwriting technique in which two or more characters have a conversation that has nothing to do with the plot of the movie or the current situation, but is usually added to lighten the mood, or to develop character. This method can either work to the movie's advantage, or just slow it down.

Coined by Doug Walker, AKA the Nostalgia Critic, in his review of M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs."
1. Ugh, that new M. Night Shyamalan movie was horrendous. The plot was nonsensical, the characters were dull, and there was WAY too much Tarantinoing.

2. The movie was pretty violent, but the Taratinoing lightened up the mood considerably.

The process by which a minority in Congress can block bills from coming to a vote.
Why are people calling Republican use of the fillibuster "The Tarantino"?

Because it "Kills Bills"!

Verb form of The Tarantino.

Alternate name the US Senate filibuster because it kills bills. On her self-named show on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow felt that the word filibuster puts people to sleep, and the issue of filibuster abuse was too important to have a sleepy electorate.
When they Tarantino a bill, you could also call it constitutional blockage because the filibuster is like an impacted colon in the body politic. The Senate needs a good cleanse of the obstructionist! Then, maybe things will get moving!
