    Pulp Fiction
    I’m a huge fan of all of his films. Close second to reservoir dogs and django unchained, but pulp fiction tops them for me.

    I do enjoy how Tarantino altered the endings to IB and Once Upon.  A way to think of how I wish things would have happened.

    Same...Death Proof is the clear bottom for me.  Not a bad film it just didn't grip me like the others....plus I thought Planet Terror was far superior.

    Jackie Brown
    I just think he does better working from source material. 

    Having said that, if there were a long, single-film cut of the Kill Bill movies, I might go with that.

    Django Unchained
    I went with Django in the same way I'd choose Vitalogy as my favorite PJ album. It's Ten (or Pulp Fiction) that is engrained the most into all our DNAs...almost to the point where ya can take the album (or film) for granted. But as much as I love Pulp Fiction, and I've seen it more times than the rest of his movie's combined, I just think Django is better. In fact, what the hell, here's my personal rankings. 

    1. Django
    2. Pulp
    3. Bastards
    4. Reservoir
    5. Hollywood
    6. Kill BIll
    7. Hateful Eight

    8. Jackie Brown (only saw the first half, couldn't get into it)
    9. Death Proof (never saw it)

    Death Proof is the worst by far. Kill Bill 2 is next but the gap is wide.

    Yeah I've never heard a bad word about it (same with True Romance, which I've never seen), but I just couldn't get into it. I'll give it another try someday.

    Reservoir Dogs

    Reservoir Dogs, no debate.

    Inglorious, Django & Once Upon a Time are probably my next favorites, in no particular order.

    The Kill Bills were far & away some of my favorite & most memorable theater going experiences (as was Once Upon a Time...). I could have easily sat through Kill Bill 2 when the 1st one ended (talk about a cliff hanger)... but they haven't aged well IMO. I don't dislike them, but I definitely am not as into them as I was 15 years ago.

    Conversely, Jackie Brown has aged tremendously... I enjoy that way more now than I ever did. (would love to see Michael Keaton in another QT movie)


    Pulp Fiction is way overrated. It's a good flick, but doesn't crack the top half of my QT movie rankings.

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    Once Upon A Time is my new fave. After that it's the Kill Bills, Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained, and Pulp Fiction.

    I don't particularly care for Reservoir Dogs anymore. I feel like that's a one and done film. I enjoyed it a lot when I first saw it, but it's not very rewatchable IMHO. Not because it's not good, but because once you know how it ends, there is no point in going back to it. It's just the nature of its particular brand of suspense I guess. For me.

    Pulp Fiction
    When I first saw Pulp I fell asleep in the movie theatre.  2nd time I watched it, loved it.  There is so much substance in it.

    The car cleaning scene w Jules and Vincent is one of my favs.

    I have never watched the Kill Bill's...  They looked silly to me.
  • eeriepadaveeeriepadave West Chester, PAPosts: 33,197
    For awhile it was kill bill but I haven’t watched them in ages. I might have to get back to you on this one. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are up there though

    True Romance is super cool.  Great lines, great actors.  

    I happened to watch Jackie with my wife and oldest last weekend.  It was the first time I had watched it in probably 20 years.  It’s very good, not great.  It’s definitely a movie QT wrote because he loves Pam Grier and wanted her to be a bad ass.  And she was.  But it made the movie a tad predictable.  Jodie Foster was great in it too.
