1. Pulp Fiction
2. Kill Bill Volume 1
3. Django Unchained
4. Inglorious Basterds
5. Kill Bill Volume 2
6. Resevoir Dogs
7. The Hateful Eight
8. Jackie Brown
9. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
10. Death Proof

Jackie Brown is that low down by virtue of the fact that I was stoned as strawberry float when I saw it and can now only remember vague images and the basic plot details. I'll rewatch it at some point. Same sort of goes for Once upon a time but I remember more of it and just don't generally like it as much. I was also high as gooseberry fool watching Grindhouse so I probably liked it more than I would have sober, but it's deliberately shlocky so I wouldn't put it in the same leagues as the rest of these films.

All these films are masterpieces-to-great though, and also shoutouts to True Romance and From Dusk til Dawn

Am in the middle of a Tarantino watch. Just watched Inglorious Basterds yesterday and Kill Bill the whole bloody affair last week.

1) Jackie Brown
2) KBTWBA
3) Inglorious Basterds
4) Pulp Fiction
5) Django Unchained
6) Reservoir Dogs
7) Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
8) The Hateful Eight
9) Death Proof

Have only watched Hollywood and Hateful Eight once and haven't seen Pulp, Django, or Reservoir for a while.

True Romance is great as well

1 - Pulp Fiction
2 - Kill Bill
3 - Inglourious Basterds
4 - Reservoir Dogs
5 - Jackie Brown
6 - Django
7 - The Hateful Eight
8 - Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
9 - Deathproof

Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece and easily in my top ten movies of all time (Maybe even top five)
Spots 2-5 are all amazing movies as well and the order can shift with my mood.
Django is great as well, but not as good as the other.
Hateful Eight and OUATIA I've only seen a couple of times and while I liked them both, they're not movies I would go back to very often.
Deathproof was shite.

7. Jackie Brown
8. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Inglorious Basterds is the standout, one of my favourite films. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir are classics. I've only seen Jackie Brown and Once Upon... once each and I basically can't remember Jackie Brown so it might well be better than I give it credit. I actually like Death Proof quite a lot considering the reputation it has. Kill Bills are inseperable but I do think they'd be better as one film.

1. Django Unchained
2. Jackie Brown

The rest vary from I don't care to pretty good. Pulp Fiction is an excellent watch at first and each subsequent viewing descends into just being bored when Jules isn't onscreen.

I think it's fine, just worse than all the rest.

I remember watching Death Proof back in Uni, and I was astounded at the distance people would go to defend it.

It was always that I didn't 'get it' and then a shopping list of shitty 70s/80s exploitation movies that I needed to watch and then I'd love it and I was like, no, I've strawberry floating seen all those shitty films and this is still bollocks.

Better than Hollywood though.

The only one I struggle to rewatch (noting I haven't rewatched Jackie Brown or Once Upon A Time) is Django Unchained, although I still like it it's the only one I really feel the often held criticism of it taking too long to build to something actually happening. The finale is incredibly cathartic but getting there is difficult. The Hateful Eight is similar but I appreciate the single location setup a lot and how the film builds through introducing all the characters. On the other end of the scale there are Inglorious Basters, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill where you can drop in to single scenes and have something satisfyingly set up and concluded which makes them easier to watch.

The Hateful Eight
Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood
Kill Bill Vol 1
Kill Bill Vol 2
Jackie Brown

I don't like Jackie Brown (though admittedly I may not have seen it all the way through and perhaps should give it another watch).

I think I really enjoyed PF and RD on the first watch but maybe didn't enjoy them as much on subsequent watches as some of the ones below, but I'll go off first impressions. I probably need to watch them both again as I haven't seen them in a while now, and certainly with PF can't really remember what happens- just the odd scene.

Reservoir Dogs This is my total favourite just everything about it, the cast the dialog I just really love it
Pulp Fiction

Kill Bill Vol 1
Kill Bill Vol 2

Django Unchained I think I liked this a lot more than some people seem to.

Inglorious Basterds

The Hateful Eight its good but to me its one of those films which Is brilliant on the first watch as its about keeping you guessing but I cant return to it like I can Reservoir Dogs or Pulp

Death Proof Yeah as part of grindhouse its ok for what it is a exploitation movie made to be a cheesy double movie horroresque feature (I prefer planet terror though)

Jackie Brown for some reason it just didnt jell with me

Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood is the only one I have not seen yet so I cant place it

I used to be very Tarantino obsessed at 16 I had seen Dogs and I wrote a short script kind of ripping it off and filmed it with 6 friends , I so wish footage of this had survived sure it was kind of crud but there was stuff I was proud of in it , I remember getting a flatpack type mdf shelve or desk or something and having myself pushed through it ended up bruising my back a bit but was very into having a stunt in there and me being the one to do it.. I wrote this thing directed it, edited it and acted in it , it was probably only like 20 minutes long and I had called it The Evil that Men do. I also read a biography on him about 30 times..

I really like Death Proof. But it's the worst Tarantino movie.

As a side note, I'd recommend anyone who likes Tarantino films to watch Bad Times at the El Royale. It is very Tarantino in style, and worth a watch.

Yes completely, whilst watching it I thought I am I watching a Tarantino, as I remembered I had read about a project he was doing where the script had been leaked and he was considering whether to do it or not, but I think that was Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
