I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t claim to have caught them all, but perhaps this list can one day be turned into something pretty complete. Please add, correct and expound on this list however you can.
RESERVOIR DOGS = the radio station KbillyÃ‚Â¸ black suits for the Crazy 88s
HANEY CAULDER = Plot concept
LADY SNOWBLOOD = Plot concept
I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE = Plot concept
MS. 45 = Plot concept
HARD TO KILL = Plot concept (I could go on forever, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll stop here. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know why people who say they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like the film fail to note the story comparison.)
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY = The BrideÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s beat up face
THE DOLL SQUAD = DIVAS concept
MODESTY BLAISE = DIVAS look
HONEY WEST = DIVAS look
FIVE DEADLY VENOMS = Naming system for DIVAS
FIVE FINGERS OF DEATH = Ironside theme preceding ass-kicking
SWITCHBLADE SISTERS = The Bride vs. Vernita (?)
THEY CALL HER ONE EYE = Elle
DEAD AND BURIED = fake Nurse killing someone
BLACK SUNDAY = fake Nurse killing someone
DRESSED TO KILL = Split screen as Elle is approaching
BLACK LIZARD = Idea of a queen of Crime in Tokyo
KAGE NO GUNDAN = Hattori Hanzo, the name Ã¢â‚¬Å“O-RenÃ¢â‚¬?
GOLGO 13 = Assasination during anime sequence (I also feel IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen the guy who killed O-RenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dad, but canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t place him)
MILLERÃ¢â‚¬â„¢S CROSSING = O-Ren killing the two bodyguards.
GREEN HORNET = Kato masks of the Crazy 88s
INISHIRO HONDA MONSTER MOVIES = miniature sets over Tokyo (specifically, WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS although the sets are from GODZILLA GMK)
GOKI, BODY SNATCHER FROM HELL = Orange sunset against the sky while plane is landing.
PULP FICTION = Red Apple cigarettes
GAME OF DEATH = The BrideÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s outfit for the finale (also used in HIGH RISK)
PROJECT A 2 = Dual level architecture of House of Blue Leaves, as well as catching the axe mid air (used again by Jackie in Shanghai Noon)
TOKYO DRIFTER = Glass floor of House of Blue Leaves
CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON = O-Ren throwing the small dart (probably used well before that, but I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know where)
SHOGUN ASSASSIN = House of Blue Leaves fight
CHINESE BOXER = House of Blue Leaves fight
ICHI THE KILLER = House of Blue Leaves fight (minor touches)
ZATOICHI FILMS = slice down a ton of minions before squaring off with the boss.
ZATOICHI CHALLENGED = Snow setting for final sword dual.
BATTLE ROYALE = GoGo killing guy in bar. (A good name for a review of Kill Bill Ã¢â‚¬â€œ either positive or negative - could be Ã¢â‚¬Å“Battle Royale with Cheese.Ã¢â‚¬?)
SUKEBAN DEKA = Deadly Japanese schoolgirl with ball and chain.
THREE FANTASTIC SUPERMEN = Go GoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ball and Chain hand weapon (kind of)
MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE = Go GoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ball and Chain hand weapon with blades extended (also music cue as O-Ren heads back to her room)
SHANGHAI NOON = Go GoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technique with the weapon (perfectly mirrors JackieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technique with the rope and horseshoe. Heck, Jackie might have done this in an earlier film as well for all I know)
SCARAMOUCHE (1952) = The Bride vs. Gordon Liu swordfighting on the railing.
SANJURO = fountain of blood from a sword dual. (I know itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a standard in many Samurai films, but Kurasawa seems to get credit for inventing it)
JAPANESE CINEMA IN GENERAL = Kabuki fight in HOBL with silhouettes
EATEN ALIVE = Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m Buck and I like to FuckÃ¢â‚¬?
YAGU FAMILY CONSPIRACY = Ã¢â‚¬Å“If you want revenge, you have to be willing to kill God or even BuddhaÃ¢â‚¬?
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE = Shot of Gogo walking out of room, revealing Uma on the ceiling (could be a million things, like Dr. No, too)
GET TO KNOW YOUR RABBIT or TAXI DRIVER = Overhead tracking shot(s). Since QT is a fan of both directors, it really could be either

GREASE = Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pussy WagonÃ¢â‚¬? lyric in Greased Lightning

Thanks in advance.
