One of my favorite directors, there are a whole bunch of films of his that I love. What are your favorite and least favorite movies that he came out with?

btw, did anyone get to watch Sukiyaki Western Django?

Death Proof.:twisted:

11-14-2008, 10:34 PM
The 5 minutes he directed in Sin City.

Someone has to say it so I will: Pulp Fiction because it's brilliant.

Least favorite is the Kill Bill series. They never did much for me.

Pulp Fiction FTW!!!

Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction - man, that's a great movie. Lots of great dialogue and one-liners too.

Death Proof - this one has moved to number two since I've gotten into old low-budget & grindhouse movies in the past few years. You know, the kind of b-movie exploitation crap that inspired this film and Tarantino's style in general. There's a great Russ Meyer box set (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Russ-Meyer-Collection/dp/B000FAOAX8) out that I'd love to have if I had a DVD player that could play PAL format. I wish things like that would be released here.

I still like the Kill Bill series. Very entertaining.

From Dusk 'Til Dawn is watchable, but only for Salma Hayek's dance number :love:

Jackie Brown and Reservoir Dogs are good for a one-time viewing. Doubt I'll see them again.

4 rooms and true romance.

Jackie Brown, definitely. :)

True Romance is a great movie but Tarantino disowned it, so I don't think it would be at the top of HIS list. lol

Pulp Fiction-Loved all the unexpected twists and turns.

I haven't seen either of the Grindhouse shows yet, so I won't speak to those.

I like Tarantino's first 4 films (as director) almost in order of release:

1) Reservoir Dogs - because it's so tightly knit and never lets up.... infinitely re-watchable
2) Pulp Fiction - echo the twists sentiment, and the actors looked like they really enjoyed themselves making it
3) Kill Bill - the Asian culture bits are of interest to me hence it ranks JUST slightly higher than....
4) Jackie Brown - which is also quite good, but doesn't invite me back like the others do.

I really love True Romance as well, but I don't count it among QT's films for the list (but if I did it would probably sit at #3). :thumbsup:

He didn't direct it, but I loved seeing him get blown away in Desperado. It made up for having to see Cheech Marin, Carlos Gallardo, and Steve Buscemi get blown away.

with the exception of pulp fiction. i find myself viewing the movies he had some involvement with, but wasn't the primary director.

The extended True Romance.
Pulp fiction. possibly the only movie i've enjoyed seeing bruce willis in.

Liked the episodes of ER he directed.

don't fancy kill bill, have yet to see Jackie brown and reservoir dogs has never appealed.

death proof and 4 rooms i've not really heard of. and i hated that one he was in with George clooney. he should definitely stay behind the camera.

Liked the episodes of ER he directed.

don't fancy kill bill,

I thought that was CSI (and wasn't that the one with Nick getting burried alive?).

Me neither, this whole beheading thing was a bit obsessive.

think it was a two parter on ER. when Dr. Green was still in it.
