    Reservoir Dogs is so hard to pull off. It's like a 12 angry men.

    Then I'm going Django

    Pulp Fiction

    Kill Bill, also counting as 1 vision

    Inglorious Basterds

    Death Proof (wife met him in an Austin hotel elevator during the shooting. Just them two. She was a respectful but gushing fan. He was cool which is so cool to hear)

    Hateful Eight

    Jackie Brown

    From Dusk Till Dawn as an actor

    I always thought Jackie Brown was going to be my fav but some of the scenes from Basterds ie - the intro scene with the farmer and the hiding Jews and the scene with the British soldiers and the German Captain in the pub were unbelievable!

  • I have such a hard time ranking these as I'm a fan of pretty much all of them. Death Proof is at the bottom for me, though I still like it quite a bit. The top always changes for me though.

    @Chinaski finally some love for Death Proof! It wasn't just Kurt Russell either--Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Rose McGowan, Zoe Bell, all killin it.
    Chinaski

    I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is."

    I loved the first half of the film was all grainy and washed to look old school... 
    Is this your homework Larry?

  • I'm loving how high Jackie Brown is on everyone's lists. For the longest time, I thought I was the only one who had it as my favorite QT flick. That said,

    1) Jackie Brown
    2) Kill Bill
    3) Pulp Fiction
    4) Hateful Eight
    5) Inglorious Basterds
    6) Django
    7) Reservoir Dogs

    Still haven't seen Death Proof myself.

  • Jackie Brown has always been the odd one out among QT-directed films because it was an adaption of a novel that was written by someone else (Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch).
  • davemcbdavemcb Melbourne
    I find this difficult because i havent seen Jackie Brown for so long but i only recently watched Basterds and Django and thought they were on par with each other.

    1. Reservior Dogs
    Basterds and Django can share 2 and 3
    4. Pulp Fiction
    5. Kill Bill
    6. Hateful Eight

    Havent watched death proof and cant remember Jackie Brown. It will be my project on leave in a few weeks

    Melanie: You ok?

    Louis: Just... gettin' old. Seems I can't smoke all that now without coughing.

    Melanie: Coughing's good! It opens up the capillaries. You know, when you cough you're pulling in air, or in this case - smoke, into parts of the lungs that don't normally get used. So, coughing's good, it gets you higher.

    Ordell Robbie: Definitely know a lot about that! Look here Louis, I got to run out for a little while so uh, if you like gettin high so much, why don't you hang out here with Mel' n' watch a little TV.

    Louis: Way ahead of ya.

    Ordell Robbie: See I get high later on when I come back, see I get high at NIGHT, when I get through with all my business.


    Jackie Brown... I love this scene <:)

    Maybe that's why the interpersonal relationships are more central to the film? If you except vengeance as a relationship, it seems they're most important in Reservoir Dogs and become less important as you move along the Tarantino filmography, except for Jackie Brown.

    Jackie Brown has always been the odd one out among QT-directed films because it was an adaption of a novel that was written by someone else (Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch).

    Good question... I think it would go like this for me (note that I haven't seen Inglorious Basterds)

    1. Kill Bill (consolidated)
    2. Pulp Fiction
    3. Django Unchained
    4. Hateful 8
    5. Jackie Brown (admittedly this is from vague recollection. I haven't seen it in many, many years, and it's quite possible that I am punishing it for that fact)
    6. Reservoir Dogs




    7. Death Proof

    I really want a Grizzly Bear sidekick, but Daniel Rossen won't return my phone calls.

    I agree, has some incredible performances in it and is funnier than I thought it would be.

  • Anyone else think that, comparatively, Brad Pitt is the worst actor in Inglorious Basterds ?

    hmm personally i liked his performance. on par to Leo's in Django. everyone killed it so i can see how you see it as the 'worse'. i just really like Basterds as a whole.

    I couldn't think of a way to articulate the bottom of the list of good acting-- there, I kinda did it lol. I thought all the actors were great, including Pitt, he was just at the bottom if I had to rank them. But I can't disagree more that he was on par with DiCaprio on Django. Leo was in a whole 'nother league in his role.

    While not a main role, I sorta can't stand Eli Roth chewing up the scenery in the baseball bat moment. 
  • ChinaskiChinaski Santa Cruz, CA
    i can respect that. i'm a huge Leo fan, i liked what he did but i guess i just wanted more. that's how i felt about Pitt's performance in Basterds. hence comparing them in my book. next i wanna see Depp in a QT role. hey, who know's.. maybe he'll cast him in the Manson flick he's doing.
