Quentin Tarantino Movie List

My brothers and I often discuss movie lists of our favourite director/actor/genre/writer etc. So I thought I would blog one of my own after viewing my erudite brothers' version of The Coen Brothers on Stinkbrown. I put my list on all things Coen after his post so thought is would be lazy to just regurgitate it here.

So I thought I'd have a go at Tarantinos!

Well I've had a go and changed the list more times than Andy Dick's vibrator. My criteria is my favourite (A mix of rewatchability and domination of the genre) movie.

Here we go:

1. Pulp Fiction (it's cult for a reason**)
2. Kill Bill vol.1 (yes they are 2 very different movies and this one nails the genre **)
3. True Romance (script only but such a bloody tight one!)
4. From Dusk Till Dawn (script & acting, classic genre and such a fun movie **)
5. Reservoir Dogs (very good but lacking something from great**)
6. Inglorious Basterds (good script with a knockout performance, tried too hard to be QT**)
7. Kill Bill vol.2 (good but suffers from comparisons to vol.1**)
8. Death Proof (car chase alone great, too much girl power**)
9. Jackie Brown (good twisty Elmore adaptation)
10. Natural Born Killers (good concept/poor execution)
11. Four Rooms - QT segment only (okay punchy little short only)

** Killer Soundtrack

I could be persuaded to flip a couple but top 5's are all top 5's

I've shown you mine, now bare yours!!!

Until then hail to the two African fellows!

  1. Damn, that's an interesting list. Mine will be so different but I will not put them up in your comments. I will reserve them for my site. You'll have to come visit.

    Mine will be very different to yours. That much I promise.

    Also, put your Coen List up here. Do it.
