Quentin Tarantino's Best Movies

Summary

Since making his debut with Reservoir Dogs 20 years ago, Quentin Tarantino has enjoyed one of the fastest-rising -- and consistently critically lauded -- careers of any director in modern Hollywood. He's back this weekend with the Jamie Foxx-led revenge fantasy Western Django Unchained, and the reviews are typically solid -- which means now is the perfect time to dedicate a feature to taking a fond look back at his earlier efforts. So cover the kids' ears and keep an eye on Marvin in the back seat, because this week, we're serving up Total Recall Tarantino style! Back to Article

I agree. The script of Pulp Fiction is good literature.-TB

Fun Fact: 'Reservoir Dogs' is a rip off of a Hong Kong movie called 'City on Fire'! In fact, most scenes from Quentin Tarantino movies are copied from old, obscure movies because he's a thieving hack!

There is no goddam way Inglorious Bastards should be above Jackie Brown on this list.

Tarentino has said he doesn't take credit for True Romance or Natural Born Killers for that matter. Sin City he co-directed one scene and that's hardly worth mentioning whereas Four Rooms was a whole segment. Finally, Death Proof and Planet Terror was originally released together and therefore reviewed as one movie. It wasn't until it was released as a DVD that they were split. Hope that helps.

Top five, no specific order - Res. Dogs, Pulp Fiction, True Romance, Death Proof, Inglourious B... Jackie Brown a close sixth. Not a fan of the Kill Bills. I'd make a "worst two" list, just for them. Still getting around to seeing Django.

Tarantino's segment was good. Better than all of his films from the first decade of the 21st Century.

There is no way that any of QT's movies made between the years or 2000-2010 are better than his 90s movies. Inglorious Basterds should be below Jackie Brown.

I agree. I've never understood the love of QT. seriously. I liked Pulp Fiction and RD's but I think most of his later films are just trailers pasted together.

Austin Powers inclusion in 'Inglourious' damn near ruined the movie for me.

He directed one of the "rooms."

Actually, neither From Dusk Till Dawn nor True Romance were directed by him AT ALL and he only directed one scene in Sin City.

Four Rooms was an anthology piece, each essentially being a short film. To be fair, they should've just rated HIS segment, not the entire movie.

I would have reversed the top 2. Reservoir Dogs was a solid debut film, but Pulp Fiction really was the better of the 2.
