**I updated this list March 2017 to add Jackie Brown & The Hateful Eight and September 2019 to add Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood.**
Here we go! Counting down to my favorite (and not including his guest director credit on Sin City, a movie I don’t really like anyway), here are all the films I’ve seen that were directed by Quentin Tarantino:
9. The Hateful Eight (I wasn’t really a fan of this one)
5. Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood
4. Jackie Brown
1. Kill Bill (both of them – I count them as one)
Inglourious Basterds was SO close to being above Death Proof, which few people will agree with. First of all, I should probably give Basterds a re-watch as I was especially wussy about violence that day and didn’t watch it closely enough except for the parts where Christoph Waltz or the lovely Melanie Laurent were on screen. It’s a much better film than Death Proof. But… Death Proof was fun and I really liked it. Zoe Bell was cool. I’m a girl and I like girls who kick ass (which is why Kill Bill is number one). So there you go!
AND I have an embarrassing confession to make: I’m a big film fan yet there’s one Tarantino-directed film that I haven’t seen. So I’ll update this list if I decide that Jackie Brown deserves a place in the Top Five. (Update – I’ve seen it now!) 😉
Now off to finally write my review for Django Unchained (Review done now!). I’ll leave you with a shitty haiku summing up how I feel about Tarantino’s crazily violent films:
Are really brilliant but I
Wish I could watch them
**I need to point out that the hubby and I are having an argument over how many syllables are in the word “brilliant”. I think this is a US/UK difference. The way I say it, it’s two, dammit! Making my haiku correct…

Interesting order, and Death Proof isn’t usually on these lists 😀
I know. I like to be awkward. Just ask my hubby. 😉
Ok I’ll ask him tomorrow.
I fall asleep during Inglourious Basterds EVERY time. Glad to see it not on the list!
Aww. The beginning was good! And the stuff in the cinema was great! Um… Then I think there was a bunch of other stuff in between… Right? 🙂 Maybe I fell asleep too.
i think RD is his best followed by PF. Not a fan of DP. Plan on watching Django again soon cause the dialogue was sooo amazing.
JB was actually mediocre IMHO 🙂
Would JB knock DP out of my fifth place, you think? 😉
not too sure it would cause JB is just waay too long…
I honestly think Basterds would be my number one.
“I want my scalps.”
I really need to re-watch Basterds. I don’t think I was paying much attention. Or I fell asleep halfway through! I do that a lot. Because old.
Pulp Fiction is my #1. After that, I have no clue. 😀
Yeah – I think Pulp Fiction is probably number one on most lists. 🙂
