QUENTIN TARANTINO FLICKS RANKED

Updated: Sep 16, 2023


Perhaps the easiest collection of films to rank of any director as there are only 9 and they are all so awesome. The music, the dialogue, the resurrection of washed up acting careers, QT has given us some of the greatest movies of all time. If you've never heard him speak or write about his immense knowledge of film history, do yourself a favor and do so. He's a gold mine of information. Alright! Let's get it on!





9. The Hateful Eight

A bitter cold western whodunit featuring a slew of great characters. My only problem with it is that Michael Madsen has such a small part. Michael Madsen is my favorite recurring QT actor. I wish so bad that I would have seen the 70mm cut in a theatre.





8. Death Proof

In this hell hole of an era where special effects are just made with computers, this flick shows why real life stunts are so important. The car chase scene makes my heart jump every time I see it. Same with the lap dance scene with The Coasters' "Down in Mexico"!





7. Reservoir Dogs

Two words...Stuck in the Middle with You. Damn Michael Madsen is great!






6. Jackie Brown

Samuel Jackson is amazing how his character will be your best friend one minute and shoot you in the head the next. How is Robert De Niro not in more of QT flicks?





5. Django Unchained

The ultimate revenge story where the ultra violence is totally justified. I want those sunglasses!





4. Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2

QT considered both films as one film and so therefor so will I. Another revenge story with incredible choreographed fight sequences. My favorite quote...Daryl Hannah..."And now I'm gonna kill you too, with your own sword no less, which in the very immediate future will become my sword"....Uma Thuman..."Bitch...You don't have a future." I fucking love that! Oh! And Michael Madsen!





3. Inglorious Basterds

The whole movie loving world's jaw dropped at the opening scene introducing us to the cunningly polite and dangerous Christopher Waltz. The tension in that scene is breathtaking followed closely by the basement barroom. And the Strudel scene. And the Bear Jew scene and on and on.





2. Pulp Fiction

This flick did to film making what Nirvana did to 80's hair metal or what Beethoven did to the Classical Era. It decimated the lazy paint by numbers coma that the art form had been in and made our over all culture a million times better. Perhaps the most rewatchable film of all time. John Travolta owes QT a 747.








NUMBER ONE!!! Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

This one didn't start out as my favorite, but over time has grown into my absolute #1. The vibe of LA in 1969 is captured so well with so many amazing details. I will say that I didn't think that Brad Pitt deserved the Oscar that he won. It seemed like one of those awards that they had to give him because they had slighted him too many times. That being said, it's ridiculous that Leonardo Di Caprio didn't win Best actor. He was phenomenal in this flick and made him my current favorite actor.
