Ranking The Quentin Tarantino Films

Django Unchained Blu-ray Quentin

I probably should have done this list after “Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood” was released, but, alas, I did not. I’m doing it now though!

  1. Pulp Fiction- One of the best films ever made. The narrative style, the cast, the dialogue- it’s all as good as cinema gets.

 

  1. Reservoir Dogs- An all-time indie classic. What more needs to be said?

 

  1. Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood- Tarantino’s personal Hollywood fairytale is a late career gem.

 

  1. Jackie Brown- Easily Tarantino’s most mature and underrated film.

 

  1. Inglourious Basterds- This violent revisionist history WWII action film is a great addition to the “men on a mission” subgenre.

 

  1. Django Unchained- Although I think it goes on 20 minutes too long, the rest of the film is a fantastic western that boasts an incredible performance by Christoph Waltz. 

 

  1. Kill Bill Volume 1- An ultraviolent revenge extravaganza that only Tarantino could do.

 

  1. Kill Bill Volume 2- Some folks say “Kill Bill” is one movie, but I saw them theatrically as two films so that’s the route I’m going. Besides, I think they are both very different films. The second part doesn’t live up to the first in my book and is a bit overlong. There’s still some great performances and moments to be sure though.

 

  1. Death Proof- The “Grindhouse” experiment as a whole was a fun cinematic adventure, but, on its own, this was the weakest part of the entire film. With that said, there’s still much to admire about it ala Kurt Russell, the stunt work, and the intense car chases.

 

  1. The Hateful Eight- The only Tarantino film I actively dislike. Sure, the cast is great and the cinematography is breathtaking, but this is an egregiously wordy and self-indulgent feature.
