8. 'True Romance'
Years before Quentin Tarantino was famous, he was employed at a video store and working on a screenplay about a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde. He shot the movie himself in 1987 and called it My Best Friend's Birthday, though a fire destroyed over half the footage. Crazily enough, about five years later Tarantino re-worked the screenplay and director Tony Scott turned it onto True Romance. Brad Pitt only has a tiny role, but he made the most of it. He'd work with Tarantino in a much more substantial way when they teamed up in 2009 for Inglorious Basterds.
