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

These Total Recalls are written before the movie they're being written in tandem with is in theaters, so Django's reviews weren't in by the release so they can't count it.

ok well that answers ONE, but none of the other movies I mentioned made it, and that still confused me

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.

If you took the time to read the introduction, it "clearly" specifies Tarantino's directing credits! It does not say writing or acting, I mean if you want RT to include Quentin in other movies he's involved in that have nothing to do with 'directing" then I'm going to have to say is include them into your own list!

I haven't seen # 8 and #7, but the list is silly because Reservoir Dogs is overrated. Pulp Fiction is #1 with Django Unchained now # 2

four rooms was pretty stupid, but in the end i found myself laughing

i should have added this in my previous comment,but death proof was by far tarantino's weakest film. i didnt all out hate the film, but it wasnt nearly close to the standards of a brillant QT movie. Fact: even QT himself said it wasnt up to his standards

respectfully, i disagree

What I mean is that it's what made him the star he his today. Wunderkind young directors come and go. QT's Palm d'Or winning genre-bender was what made people realize they were dealing with a game-changer. But, no, I don't think he's managed to top it since then either.

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.

He wrote the screenplay for True Romance. He used the money to do Reservoir Dogs.

To me Inglorious Bastards should not be on the list, I saw it and thought it was pretty weak compared to Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill movies.
