The shootout at the end of Resivoir Dogs is totally copied from the shootout in the liquor store in Repo Man (I can’t find video of it on Youtube, but it’s right before the sequence in the video above). Basically in both films you have like five people all pointing guns at each other sort of in checkmate…then they all start shooting, exact same arrangement. And the glowing briefcase in Pulp Fiction carrying a radioactive device or nuclear bomb is a total homage to the glowing car with a radioactive device or aliens in the trunk in Repo Man.
Also copies the part where this one repo man is playing him soul music, Tarantino uses that in Jackie Brown movie, also influenced by the lady repo office worker. AND Repo Man is a total LA period movie like Quentin Tarantino always does. David Lynch also copied the scene of Otto visiting his parents who are watching TV in the scene in I think Lost Highway where the guy visits his parents and they are just watching TV ignoring him pretty much.
