I was thinking about it, and since Pulp Fiction is on at this very moment, I wanted to know what you fine people think. I can't remember all of Tarantino's major films, so that is why I'm not making this a poll.

For me, personally, I would have to say that my top three in order are:

3 (tied). Kill Bill Vol. 2 / Inglorious Basterds

2. Death Proof

1. Pulp Fiction

The writing is always stellar, but I just find the story most interesting for Pulp Fiction, and I love the chase from Death Proof. So well done. I neglected to mention Reservoir Dogs, which was definitely up there, but I just don't know if I can say it's MY favorite. Everyone has different tastes, of course.

I don't know. Pulp Fiction is my favorite. I saw it in the theater twice. The general consensus around movie forums I've been a part of believe IB is his best work to date.

@uniform: Didn't seem as loved by the critics, but it had stellar acting and great writing, as per usual.

Kill Bill Vol. 1. 
 
I don't like Quentin Tarantino. Kill Bill was pretty awesome (B-Movie Action with cool characters, awesome soundtrack and respectable writing.), Pulp Fiction was ok(I liked it. It was a fine movie. That was fine in all parts. But i didn't thought it was a masterpiece...), Inglorious Bastard was HORRIBLE. They promised Jews killing Nazis and what i've got was hours of talking so someone could burn a cinema? MEH. 
 
EDIT: I forgot to say why i don't like Quentin Tarantino movies in general: I don't like their pacing. They barely captivate me.

Personally, Inglourious Basterds recently dethroned Pulp Fiction. The opening sequence of IB had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The bar sequence was another one that just had me hooked and waiting. Pulp Fiction has some great, memorable moments to it, and overall is just an awesome story, just something about Basterds that really swept me up. Kill Bill Vol. 1 comes in a close second to those, the O-Ren Ishii fight and everything leading up to it is such a fun bit of film.

I'm surprised there's no love for Reservoir Dogs in this thread. For me it's a close second to pulp fiction.

Inglorious Bastards was kind of false advertising, but I'd say it's my fave, because the dialogue is actually pretty great and engaging. Other than this though, the only QT movies I've seen were the two Kill Bills.

@SpencerTucksen: Yeh true, but didn't he write it? I mean what are we talking here, director only movies? In that case Reservoir Dogs was real good.

I used to love his movies, for me the only one that I can still watch is Reservoir Dogs, so I think that is his best film. I really don't care for his more recent films.

Well, Rodriguez wrote and directed. Tarantino helped, but it was definitely more of Rodriguez' film, in my opinion. Reservoir Dogs was great.

I haven't seen Death Proof, and can't remember anything about True Romance or Jackie Brown(though it is on my "to-view"-pile), but I'm pretty sure that Pulp Fiction is the best film he's made. It's certainly the most influencial.

I was shown True Romance a couple years after seeing Pulp Fiction. I had no idea Quentin was involved with it prior to watching it, but once it started, that QT dialog hit me upside the head. I didn't even need to see his name in the credits.

Death Proof with Reservoir Dogs in second. Death Proof gets unfair hate because it was shown second in Grindhouse even though Death Proof is the better movie.

The dance scene from Pulp Fiction is based off a scene from one of my favorite films so I am going with that.

@uniform: I absolutely agree with you. He's more known amongst the public for the brutal violence, but it's all about the dialogue and story in his movies. The violence that is in them just happens to be gruesome.

dont care what you say but From Dusk Till Dawn was awsome and I give all credit to the foot fetish king, QT!

But I really enjoy all of his movies and have to go with Inglorious bastards for the mere fact that they were hunting nazi's for they scalps.. First time watching it and i couldn't stop laughing at how ridiculous it was. Kill bills were ok but I see them on tv way to much and pulp fiction is ok.

Death Proof is Tarantino giving homage to car movies in the same way he gave homage to Japanese samurai and kung fu revenge movies in Kill Bill

Kill Bill 2 by far, its the most... reaching beyond his normal audience. Others may out-action, out-twist, out-70's, out-dialogue it, but I think its the most overall complete package, with a hero that isn't in some way flawed beyond the capability of sympathy- ie. a real hero not anti-hero.

@DonChipotle: @MikeGosot: Basically, it's his homage to movies like Bullet and The French Connection, with stellar car chases. But I DO think the setup story for it is pretty good.

Pulp Fiction. Resevoir Dogs and then Inglorious Bastards. My least favorite is Jackie Brown but I still love Jackie Brown.
