Something about IB just really hit me and it became one of my favourites of all time. I love all of his other films about equally, but if pushed I would put KB1, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs slightly above his remaining films.

I like your #1

here it is for me:

Jackie Brown
Pulp Fiction
Inglorious Basterds
(honorable mention: True Romance! I'm gonna count it, damnit!)
Django
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Kill Bill Vol. 1
Reservoir Dogs

I haven't seen Deathproof.

Now, I like Basterds more than Pulp Fiction, but I think Pulp gets the nod because it is a seminal work. Few directors will ever get something like that. I think they are both equal in quality, though.

Also, KB 2 is overall better than 1...I just really liked KB1 for some reason.

Reservoir Dogs is fine and all, I just got really burned out from watching it every day for about a year some time in high school. I really don't want to ever see it again.

at least with True Romance, he has story, writing, and producer's credits. AND you don't have to see his no-acting self muck up a scene. (producer can either mean nothing or can mean everything)

How about remake/re-imagining of Inglorious Basterds?

Inglorious Basterds
Pulp Fiction
Jackie Brown
Kill Bill 1 & 2
Reservoir Dogs

Haven't seen Django, probably going to wait until bluray release. Also haven't seen Death Proof, though I feel like it's on my Netflix DVD queue.

Also in the camp of "wtf was so good about Reservoir Dogs???" It gets a giant MEH from me.

QT directed the first half, and RR directed everything after, starting with "Pussy, pussy, pussy!"

3/4 of the fun in watching QT movies is figuring out where he stole everything from. I do not think he has one shot in a movie which is not directly lifted from another one. Reservoir Dogs is 100% a Japanese film he hoped not many Americans had ever seen.

Pulp Fiction is far and away the best of his movies.

Kill Bill 1 and 2 were OK. As was Inglorious Basterds (though I haven't seen this one in a while.)

I wasn't a huge fan of Reservoir Dogs.

I did enjoy From Dusk til Dawn, though.

Arguably the best part was everything up to the bar. After that it just got silly.

Inglorious Basterds
Pulp Fiction
Kill Bill Vol. 1
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Reservoir Dogs
Jackie Brown
Death Proof

Have not set seen Django Unchained.

If I could include True Romance I'd put it just below IB.

I'm surprised at how high inglorious basterds is for so many people! I enjoyed it but thought it lacked the depth of Pulp and Reservoir.

Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
Jackie Brown
Kill Bill 1
Inglorious Basterds
Kill bill 2
Death Proof? (Haven't seen it, didn't really want to)

Haven't seen Django, but I imagine it to be ranked around the Kill Bills. I enjoyed them but I just felt Pulp and Reservoir were his best films by a long shot.

Jackie Brown
Pulp Fiction
Inglorious Basterds
Death Proof
Reservoir Dogs

Still need to see Kill Bill & Django.

To enjoy QT movies:
Long drawn out conversations with a single camera shot, off-beat music that steals the scene, ridiculous scenarios, throw-back to the 70's, and QB gets actors to give the performances of their lives.

Jackie Brown for me is #1 and I love Death Proof, can watch Death Proof over and over again. The opening shot in IB is so unbelievably good and Christoph Waltz had such an epic performance I give it #3. Pulp Fiction is just too classic and how everything gets tied together is a work of genius #2.

I can't really do it.. I like each in their own way.

I think Pulp Fiction aged the best.. it's cartoonish and sort of timeless.

Kill Bill, I loved it when it came out, and still a good couple films. But a bit drawn out and overdone in Tarantino's style. I think this aged the worst (maybe because it's always on TV)

Death Proof and Inglorious are great popcorn flicks, likely not remembered by anyone but his fans.

Haven't seen Django

I actually prefer Reservoir Dogs to City on Fire, although the latter is also good.

Me too.

I also prefer Stairway to Heaven over Taurus, but LZ stole a good portion of that song from Spirit, never credited them, and lied about it despite Spirit not pressing the issue, and that's wrong; it says a lot about the person.

I think of QT as a stylist with an expert sense of characterization. He has a vast wealth of film knowledge to draw on, remakes what he's enjoyed, and adds in all sorts of quirky, anti-hero lovable awfuls to gawk at.

Since resdogs, he hasn't gone to that level of straight rip though, so he's grown up a bit, and I respect his talents immensely. I hope he has a few quality films left in the tank.
