Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

It's been a few years since we did this (and I fucked up the last one by not including a poll). Now that most have seen Django Unchained, what's your favorite Tarantino?

Pulp Fiction. It's my #2 favorite film of all time.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

I'm going to have to go with Basterds. Pulp Fiction at number deux.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

If PULP wasn't part of his filmography, it would be a much harder choice.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

Pulp Fiction, I was 16 when it came out and the movie blew me away unlike any other. The way people a few years older then me describe what it was like seeing Star Wars when it first came out is how I feel about Pulp Fiction. It mixed throughout my young adulthood. I will never see another movie that will have the dramatic effect on me that Pulp Fiction did.

Surprised at the love for Inglorious Basterds. I just don't see it as a groundbreaking or particularly great movie. Compared to the constant creative vibe of his early work I don't think there's any comparison.

I was 16 as well when it came out and while I can attest to the fact that it blew my (and everyone elses) mind somehow its power has diminished over the years. Meanwhile Reservoir Dogs and Jackie Brown grow stronger every time I watch them.

Reservoir Dogs for me - saw it when it first hit home video. I liked Pulp Fiction but it did not have the impact on me that it did on many others.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

My favorite film is (and may well always be) Pulp Fiction. So yeah, that.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

Bring out the gimp
though results can change based on how I'm feeling on a particular day

ranking would probably be as follows

Pulp Fiction
Jackie Brown
Inglourious Basterds
Kill Bill 1 & 2
Reservoir Dogs
Death Proof
Django Unchained

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

I saw KILL BILL VOL. 1 four times on the big screen when it came out. I've seen it many times on DVD since, esp. after I got hold of the Japanese cut. I've seen the others maybe twice each, except for the last two, which I've yet to see more than once, although I certainly will. (I want to see DJANGO again on the big screen before it leaves theaters.) So KBV1 it remains. Rarely has a film connected so directly to my cultural DNA.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

Pulp Fiction is my favorite movie of all time and literally changed my life, and view of movies in general, after my first viewing. I highly doubt any film will top it, let alone another Tarantino movie.

Strongly concur with these reactions. Though I'm sure Kill Bill (Especially vol-1) has had more repeat viewings from me, I still have to go with Pulp when all is said and done.

Re: Favorite Quentin Tarantino film

Given that Pulp Fiction will win this one easily, a more interesting poll would ask "What is your 2nd Favorite Tarantino movie?"

(Now if Pulp Fiction won that poll too, that would be strange)

Inglorious Basterds, with Jackie Brown nipping at its heels.

IB has some brilliant moments, as well as some that get a little too jokey for my taste.
