I haven't seen Django yet, but Pulp Fiction is my favourite Tarantino film.

Inglourious is a better film but Pulp Fiction is just too awesome

Basterds maybe i dont know, i dont think i can rewatch his movies. Screw it i'll watch Inception for the 30th time

#53 Edited by crazyleaves (666 posts) -

I voted for Pulp Fiction only because even though he wrote True Romance, he didn't direct it. True Romance is a better movie in my opinion, I'm a romantic.

Not seen Django so this is based on everything he has done previous to it, but Inglorious Basterds feels like the most well crafted of all the films he has made. I love the hell out of Kill Bill also, I know people tend to prefer the trashier first part, but the second part has grown on me considerably over time. I love the pregnancy test scene, or Bill explaining Superman's hidden identity and the moment Beatrix meets her daughter for the first time.

I too must protest that you separated the Kill Bill films. But if I have to choose, it would be Vol. 2

I used to like Tarantino a lot when I was younger, but then I grew up and realized that he is really just a try-hard fanboy. That said, I rank Inglorious Basterds among my very favorite films. I feel like Tarantino really became a mature filmmaker with that movie. I didn't have any intention to see Django Unchained, seeing as how I don't like Jamie Foxx and Tarantino tends to strike me the wrong way, but after hearing so many good things about it, I intend to check it out sooner or later.

I have never understood the term "try-hard" as some sort of insult. Some people I play online games with use it all the time, and I really don't get it. Should someone not be trying hard? If you're playing an online competitive game, or in this instance making a multi million dollar film, should you give it everything you have? Would Tarantino not giving a shit somehow make his films better? Wouldn't that just make him or anyone else a joke like Uwe Boll?

What I meant is that he tends to be a lot more imitative than creative. When I watch Tarantino films, I usually feel like I'm watching Tarantino emulate his heroes. His movies tend to feel more like exercises in film-making than films that are worth watching in their own right. Of course, that's not entirely true for Inglorious Basterds and I'm not sure if it's true for Django Unchained because I haven't seen that one yet. I've seen all of his other movies.

From Dusk Til Dawn. Man, that was a long time ago...

#58 Posted by Deranged (1944 posts) -

Inglorious Basterds.

#59 Posted by Lord_Xp (648 posts) -

@project343: Agree 100%.

On a side not, I watched Resevoir Dogs for the first time last night. That was also very good. I hope he keeps making movies.

#60 Posted by TobbRobb (5254 posts) -

I can't speak for Django yet. But my personal favorite is Pulp followed by Dogs.

Who the fuck voted for Dusk til Dawn? That is a terrible movie.

#61 Posted by Gargantuan (1896 posts) -

I've only seen Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds. I didn't like Basterds but Pulp Fiction was pretty good.

#62 Edited by Mike (14592 posts) -

I bet many people answering this poll haven't even seen True Romance or Jackie Brown...especially the latter. So unfortunate!

#63 Posted by crusader8463 (14756 posts) -

I watched From Dusk till Dawn as a kid long before I knew who he was or that he was supposed to be some hot shit and I loved the hell out of that movie. He has some other ones that I thought were fine movies, but Dusk is the only one of the movies on that list that stands out in my head as being memorable for me.

I've seen all off the films on the list. Jackie Brown is a really good film, not better then Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction but good and True Romance is in my opinion not that good of a film only good things about it is Gary Oldman and Dennis Hooper's speech about "The Moors".
#65 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1275 posts) -

Inglorious Basterds for me. It's the only one of his movies that I've watched multiple times. Also, I'm a big fan of Christoph Waltz and he is amazing in I.B..

I've seen Jackie, and while it's a great movie it's not as good as Pulp Fiction. Definitely one of his best though.

He's making Kill Bill Vol. 3 next, if IMDb is to be belived. Personally, I'd like to see him tackle a gangster movie set in our day and age. He has shown himself to master each period he's attempted so far, and we really need a good gangster movie for the coming decade.

#68 Posted by EuanDewar (5156 posts) -

Jackie Brown, by a country effin mile

#69 Posted by UitDeToekomst (791 posts) -

The correct answer is Reservoir Dogs. After that is Jackie Brown, followed by Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds. The order of the rest does not matter.

#70 Posted by Danteveli (1322 posts) -

Reservoir Dogs

#71 Posted by golguin (4634 posts) -

Inglorious Basterds and then Pulp Fiction. That monologue in the beginning of Inglorious with the Jewish people hiding is intense.

I have not seen Django yet.

#72 Posted by PenguinDust (12855 posts) -

I'm not really much of a fan, but I liked True Romance so I voted that one.

#73 Posted by Mastercheesey (244 posts) -

Jackie Brown then probably reservoir dogs or kill bill.

#74 Posted by forkboy (1407 posts) -

Jackie Brown

#75 Posted by Yummylee (23702 posts) -

I can't choose.. It's been a while since I've seen most of them (especially the Kill Bill films) and I haven't seen Django at all. I've often remembered having a fondness for Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, and Inglorious Basterds the most, though.

#76 Posted by xyzygy (10596 posts) -

I picked Kill Bill 2, but I think they should both be lumped as one. I couldn't choose. I think they're his best movies.

#77 Posted by DonutFever (3893 posts) -

Reservoir Dogs, followed by Kill Bill Vol. 2. Jackie Brown did nothing for me, surprised to see it voted for as much as it is.

#78 Posted by golguin (4634 posts) -

Reservoir Dogs. He did so much with so little in that movie it really showed what he can do as a director even if he has no money.

I think I would place Reservoir Dogs third. I always reference the movie when someone asks me about tips. I simply don't eat where tips are required or are part of the bill.

#79 Posted by Lord_Xp (648 posts) -

@Legion_: I think there are enough gangster films going around at the moment. But I know he would make a great one if he did. Something crazy would be him making a movie in medieval type movie.

#80 Posted by Miketakon (533 posts) -

Pulp Fiction. Kill Bill is a close second.

#81 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

Recently I've decided it's Jackie Brown. Still his most mature film, and he probably gets the most out that cast that any other he's done. Plus major kudos for making Pam Grier and Robert Forster into total cinematic badasses when they were basically at their career low-points. Great sense of place too, just oozing with south-central LA style.

#82 Edited by tunaburn (2016 posts) -


dude you put natural born killers on here. thats not even his movie. he didnt make that. he only wrote it. its not a tarantino movie.

#83 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3549 posts) -

Kill Bill, but if I have to pick one of the two volumes, I pick 2.

#84 Edited by TheHT (12682 posts) -

Definitely Kill Bill. Gonna see Django soon, but I doubt it'll usurp Kill Bill.

Between the two volumes I gotta go with Vol. 1. The showdown with Bill and all the Pai Mei stuff is fantastic, but the meeting with Hattori Hanzo, the swords, the history of O-Ren, the bloody tea house, are all so damn good. I'm down to watch it any time.

#85 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

Reservoir Dogs. Textbook example of how to have style and not give a fuck at the same time.

#86 Posted by cosmicx (25 posts) -

Kill Bill vol 1 and Pulp Fiction. I choose Kill Bill

#87 Posted by bennyboy (342 posts) -

i said pulp fiction but that ear cutting scene in reservoir dogs gets my dick hard every time

#88 Posted by BrandonPckrfn (77 posts) -

Pulp and then Jackie for sure.

#89 Posted by alexl86 (710 posts) -

i haven't seen Django yet, but I'd say Pulp Fiction is his best movie. It's certainly his most influencial movie. Half of Hollywood spent the rest of the 90's trying(and failing) to emulate the dialogue. I'd probably put Jackie Brown in second, but generally like all his movies.

#90 Posted by Sanity (2063 posts) -

Always loved From Dusk till Dawn. Kill Bill is a tie for me i think.

#91 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6115 posts) -

Reservoir Dogs for me.

#92 Edited by tallTuck94 (585 posts) -

The only film of his I like is Pulp fiction, all the rest I've seen were crap. I do want to see Django though, it looks pretty good.

Edit: Wasn't Natural Born Killers by Oliver Stone? It's terrible.

#93 Posted by NoelVeiga (1229 posts) -

Pulp Fiction is too much of a no-brainer, but Django is his best since Jackie Brown, as far as I'm concerned.

It sort of makes me wish he'd go ahead and do something wildly different. A Quentin Tarantino romantic comedy maybe, or a straight up sci-fi movie. And I don't mean one of those as filtered by his visual style, either. Not one with tons of violence and 70s b-grade culture. I mean one of those, period. After Django I'm pretty sure he could do it extremely well if he wanted to.

#94 Posted by Tylea002 (2382 posts) -

It breaks my heart to see Jackie Brown so low. It's under Inglourious for god's sake! That film's not even good!

(I'm on the side of Jackie Brown being a fucking masterpiece)

#95 Posted by Grillbar (1993 posts) -

have not seen django but come on aparently no one likes NBK

#96 Posted by Draugen (805 posts) -

Kill Bill Vol. 2. I saw it every day in the cinema for a week straight.

I do love Jackie Brown, though. But it's all good!

#97 Posted by Winternet (8265 posts) -

The Kill Bill movies should be one choice. Also, what is True Romance and Natural Born Killers doing here?

#98 Posted by HistoryInRust (6671 posts) -

I'm a Jackie Brown guy, myself. Really enjoy Death Proof quite a lot and am flabbergasted no one voted for it.

#99 Posted by SmilingPig (1370 posts) -

I don't realy like Tarantino films.

#100 Posted by probablytuna (4271 posts) -

Having not seen Django Unchained yet, it is still Pulp Fiction, only marginally second would be Kill Bill.
