From least favorite to favorite.
7. 'Death Proof' – This tribute to grindhouse cinema is talky (as expected) but the climax fails to live up to the buildup.
6. 'Jackie Brown' – A competently made tribute to both heists and blaxploitation films, this has some memorable moments and high points, but is often regarded as one of Tarantino's lesser efforts. The big problem is that it seems to be really slow, at times.
5. 'Django Unchained' – Part western, part statement about slavery. This is where the list starts to get difficult to rank, because it’s gold from here on out. The fact that this was the most recent film means that it has had less time to settle in with me, thus the low ranking, but it’s still really good. It may move up the list in time.
4. 'Kill Bill' – A massive, two-part love-letter to classic martial arts/samurai films. The first half is more straightforward action while the second catches up on the story.
3. 'Inglourious Basterds' – Ahhhh revisionist history. At times violent, tense and funny, this film helped to make a star of Christoph Waltz.
2. 'Reservoir Dogs' – This is where it all started, folks. Tarantino grew since this picture, but respect must be paid to someone who can just come out of the gate with something as developed as this. It also influenced a generation of filmmakers who thought that guys in suits with guns were cool.
1. 'Pulp Fiction' – It's hard to imagine that the director will ever top this one. An impressive collection of talent and a brilliant script add up to one of the most important films of the '90s.
