Tarantino Ranked

Looking forward to Tarantino’s “Eighth Film” coming later this year, I have been revisiting some of his earlier works. (Ever notice how he always has two-word titles?)  From least to best in my estimation, here they are:

8. “Death Proof” (2007) 

I never could see the point, really. At some point an homage to bad cinema ends up being just… bad cinema.

7. “Reservoir Dogs” (1992)

This film exploded onto the scene and made Tarantino a household name. It is amazing for what it is. But it isn’t much more than a sketch.

6. “Jackie Brown” (1997) 

Tarantino’s only adaptation of another writer’s work.

5. “Kill Bill (Vol. 2” (2004) 

Tarantino considers the Kill Bill films one single work. This part brings the whole effort down a notch.

4. “Kill Bill (Vol. 1)” (2003) 

This film has an animated segment, but the whole thing is pretty much a cartoon. Just NOT for kids.

3. “Django Unchained” (2012) 

This is Tarantino’s film that makes me the most uncomfortable.

2. “Pulp Fiction” (1994) 

The masterpiece that he almost never topped.

1. “Inglorious Basterds” (2009) 

For my money, this is the best thing Tarantino has done, so far…
