Quentin Tarantino is one of the two or three most influential filmmakers of the last 20 years. Here’s my countdown of my five favorite Tarantino films.

Matt Rsaid on Sunday, January 27, 2013 3:56:50 PMI am surprised and disturbed by your inclusion of True Romance in this top 5 over Jackie Brown. Jackie Brown is far better than True Romance, which wasn't even directed by Tarantino. If he had directed it, there's a good chance that it could have been as good as Reservoir Dogs, but as it is, it wasn't directed by him, and Tony Scott changed the ending, which I think was a mistake. The best part of the film is the scene between Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper. Other than that, I was just kind of let down by Scott's choices. Not only did I like Jackie Brown better than True Romance, but I also liked Death Proof better, and, on top of that, if we're including films that Tarantino wrote but did not direct, I like From Dusk Till Dawn better than both Death Proof and True Romance. True Romance is only good at the times that Tarantino's screenplay is able to overcome Scott's direction.

I agree with mike o, Inglorious-bastards is overrated after that riveting opener.
Jonathansaid on Friday, November 16, 2012 12:55:47 PMIt's hard to argue any list that doesnt include Jackie Brown, but I am curious where you would rank Kill Bill Vol 1 and Vol 2 as stand-alone Tarantino films? The more I watch Vol 2, the more I love everything about it, and would rank it just below Pulp Fiction

Mike Osaid on Saturday, November 03, 2012 7:41:45 PMWhy no Jackie Brown, his best film by far in my opinion, also inglorious bastards is Way overrated, again in my opinion, but seriously can someone explain the logic of putting a David Bowie song in a world war two movie. I just think he did that because he knows people expect him to make decisions like that, also aside from Aldo I can only remember three of the bastards, and did the gut Pitt got captured with at the end have any lines before that scene? Its still an entertaining flick, but a WWII film just doesn't mix with pulp fiction story telling.
Still better the Death Proof
