Director and two-time Oscar winner Quentin Tarantino received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday morning.

He was joined by Samuel L. Jackson, who has starred in multiple Tarantino movies.

Tarantino has been making movies since 1992 when he created his first screenplay "Reservoir Dogs." He went on to win his first Oscar for writing "Pulp Fiction" in 1995.

He returned to the Oscars stage in 2013 and won another screenwriting award for "Django Unchained." His latest film "The Hateful Eight" will be in theaters Friday.

The filmmaker recalled growing up in Los Angeles County's South Bay area and even remembers many of his first movie experiences being at the Chinese Theater.
