I can't vote because I can't give an A score to any Tarantino film.

Shit. I knew I forgot some option. You can’t give an A- to even Reservoir Dogs? Or is that Tim Roth bleeding scene too much of a negative for you?
Probably a B score would be the best I could give for the first two films and that's stretching things a bit. Maybe a B- for each.

Man, you’re a strict bird.
I tried to edit the poll but it’s too late. The limitation time to edit must be something like 5 minutes.
Usually you have a few hours, are you sure you did it right?

I made the thread about 16 hours ago now
Ah right, well that's that then.

Yeah ah well.

I’m surprised Kill Bill 1 is making a run for best Tarantino flick. I thought it’d be Pulp vs Once Upon.
The Kill Bill films suck, overlong feminist girl power bullshit.



So it’s YOU who interviewed QT when he promoted Kill Bill. :lol:

Tarantino is very sensitive to criticism, I wonder why?

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood would be a great film if it didn't have such a stupid ending.
Yeah, the ending is a bit much.    Film endings tend to suck in general, imo.

See, Johnny...

...some great TRF reviews for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood".

It may be time to give it a view.

:lol:

Matrix and Lord of the Rings get awesome reviews on TRF too but I dislike those too. I can use “despise” for Matrix. :lol:
While I did enjoy the LOTR Trilogy, I confess I didn't get "The Matrix".

I looked up his filmography and have him at a 9-11 record. So he’s definitely been in movies I’ve liked at least. Thelma & Louise and 12 Years A Slave, for example. That’s it though - I like the movies he’s in when he’s not the star or has a much smaller role. :lol:

True Romance has to be mentioned since Tarantino wrote it.

Thread title: “Tarantino the Director”.

True Romance is indeed one of Pitt’s 9 wins that I counted.

Watched "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" a second time and enjoyed it as much as I did the first time.

I love Tarantino movies because there are tons of little things you pick up on each time you see one of his movies the second (3rd, 4th, 5th...) time around.

I don't have a Quentin Tarantino directed movie I like the most.  I usually haven't liked to give grades of anything.  On how he directs, I think he is different, and maybe, a weird one.

I think his top 4 and most rewatchable are Pulp, JB, KB 1 and Basterds.

I thought Hollywood was ok, but ultimately a let down.  It LOOKS great, has an excellent cast and fascinating period/subject matter.  But a lot of time is wasted on......nothing.

IMO, that is and important element of a good Tarantino flick, the weaving in of nostalgia and ephemera.  Hollywood was crammed with it.

Though I don't rate Jackie Brown above an A- or better, it is still a criminally underrated movie.

I do rate it an A- ... and I totally agree!

That pikey accent he did in Snatch was total garbage. Side note trivia: The only reason he did that accent is because he couldn’t pull off a standard British accent.

Agreed.

He over played his insanity in 12 Monkeys.

I read that it was Terry Gilliam's (director) fault - he took the dude's cigarettes away and he got cranky.
