Take your pick ...
Pulp Fiction for me followed closely by Death Proof (I worship this movie, don't ask)
Huh? Where's the "over-rated self-promoting hack" option?
Not cool, not fun. Reservoir Dogs was good.
KILL BILL, v. 1. It's one of those movies I can watch any time.
Most of his earlier work hasn't stood the test of time for me.
Kill Bill: Vol. 2
Kill Bill: Vol. 1
Death Proof (theatrical cut)
Death Proof (extended cut)
Still Haven't Seen:
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Grave Danger
Kill Bill:The Whole Bloody Affair
Doesn't Count Anyway:
My Best Friend's Birthday
I love (in order):
Kill Bill: Vol. 1
Kill Bill: Vol. 2
I am "eh" about (in order):
Death BlahBlahBlah Proof
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Grave Danger is really good and not easy to watch for someone who is horribly afraid of ants.
True Romance is my favorite of his scripts.
Easy, Reservoir Dogs
Most over-rated director in the world.
I love all of these films (including the less popular Jackie Brown and Death Proof), but if forced to choose...KILL BILL.
Despite being divided into two separate volumes, I prefer to think of it as one film. I love the blending of martial arts and the spaghetti western here along with so many other genres.
I'm in kind of a spur-of-the-moment, pick-your-favorite X lately, so I am gonna say...
Pulp Fiction was really fun and inventive the first time I saw it. I watched it three times after that and never need to see it again.
I watched Reservoir Dogs three times, the first time being an incredibly shocking experience. Ugh, my gut was so clenched after watching it. Never need to see it again.
Jackie Brown? I'd watch it again.
The Kill Bills were not my cup of tea, and I would not watch one long version.
I'm gonna go with Death Proof: Extended Edition as my favorite, even though I'm still so new to it. I was very surprised with how good it was given my positive but lackadaisical reaction to it in Grindhouse. Great film with surprising moments and believable moments. Everyone delivers.
edit: True Romance was a fun one, too, agreed.
Definitely my favorite too!
True Romance would win if it were scripts.
Pulp Fiction edges out the Dogs for movie. Didn't get it when I saw in the theater, but love it ever since.
Kill Bill 1+2
in order for me
kill bill vol 1
kill bill vol 2
People love to say that but to be honest he is the greatest director from the 90's to now- he has breathed life into genre's that many never saw or some forgot- and all the while he made not good- but great movies- anyone who says he is overhyped or isnt a great director is actually full of themselves and full of sh*t... <: with that said I love Kill Bill but im gonna give a slight edge to Pulp Fiction cuz it is truly one of the all time movie greats of any genre
I didnt say he wasnt good he is just over-rated. He always gets into top 10 directors and ppl like Carpenter have made far better films than anything he ever did.
Jackie Brown for me. I love Pulp Fiction as much as the next guy, but I do think it is terribly overrated. Jackie should get much more attention than Pulp.
Here are my favorite Tarantino films in order:
Kill Bill (both volumes)
"The Man From Hollywood" (Four Rooms segment) <--This is just horrible. I thought his would be the best segment in the film, but it turned out to be the worst by far!
Death Proof: The only Tarantino film I have bothered to own (except for From Dusk Till Dawn, which really doesn't count, does it?)
True Romance would win for me as well if it was for scripts....
I think Pulp Fiction would be my first choice but I think Death Proof is a strong contender in the future. I just need to see it a few more times to see if it holds up.
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
Jackie Brown (1997)
Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
To me his body of work is more interesting than any single film. If I try to pick a single film there isn't one I can pick without missing elements from his other films. If I had to pick I guess I'd go with PULP, with RESERVOIR being a low point, but really, they're all pretty special to me.
