It's on my on-the-fence list right now - would you recommend it to people who haven't seen the majority of Tarantino's films?

yes, although idk if i can compare it to his recent films. its closer to feeling like a vintage piece period film such as pulp fiction

It is probably best to point out that Tarrantino's style, if he has one, is to incorporate and mix-mash a lot of different genres, narrative aspects and general methods of creating action, suspense and drama. You can love one of his movies, and feel entirely different about another one. Tarrantino is the prime example of someone who just wants to tell a story and be artistic in the way he pays homage to the stories/genres he found inspiration from.

I'm visiting my parents for the long weekend so if there aren't any crazy events, I'm going to try and watch Inglorious Basterds plus Reservoir Dogs if there's time.

If you had to rank Tarantino's movies from your personal best-to-worst (or top three, maybe) what would they be? I've only seen Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained  :box:

  1. Reservoir Dogs (It was the first Tarantino movie I saw, and I love the premise of it.)
  2. Pulp Fiction (It is just great.)
  3. Kill Bill volume 1 (Very confusing and disjointed way of telling a story, but the mix of genres and pushing a general narrative through volumes 1 and 2, makes both 1 and 2 solid movies. Volume 1 was clearly the better one, however. 
  4. Inglorius Basterds (Perhaps this is ranked as number 3, not sure. I like it, but Kill Bill played with so many genres and made a really good, though thoroughly confusing, movie). 
  5. Kill Bill volume 2
  6. Very large gap down from the above 5 that I consider to be solid movies, to the bottom two which I did not like too much.
  7. Jackie Brown (People usually love this, but I do not, and I do not know why. I ought to give this a second chance.).
  8. Death Proof (Not a fan of the genre, so I very much did not seriously watch this, but more with half an interest. I should perhaps give it a more honest chance, but genuinely...? I do not like the genre, and I do not care to give it another go. :tongue: )

I have not seen Django Unchained nor the Hateful Eight (or Once Upon A Time..), so I cannot say. I think both of those would be movies I would greatly like, however, so.. :tongue:

Sweet, thanks! I realize I've seen Kill Bills and agree with ya - I'll have to spend a week or two catching up with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction; you think they're good movies for a crowd? I've spent a lot of my time just watching shows/movies by myself and ask since Harry Potter was the last group movie I watched: ha.

I mean.. they are not your average popcorn action flick like The Expendables for groups of people, but bouts of philosophy and morality aside, they are entertaining enough to see with people, yeah.

In fact, if you consider Kill Bill or Inglorious Basterds something that you can see in a group, then yeah, both Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction will be more than fine. Bear in mind that, at this point, they are movies from the early 90ies though, so... I am not sure if that will turn people away (and if it does, might I suggest you unfriend those noobs? :cute: ). :tongue:

For me,

1. Jackie Brown

2. Inglourious Basterds

3. Reservoir Dogs

The rest are great, but these 3 really stick out the most. People would probably hit me with the :huh: every time I say Jackie Brown as my favorite, but it's just so damn wonderful.

Edit: Correction, the rest are great apart from Death Proof. That movie's trash. Also, Four Rooms isn't technically Tarantino's movie I don't believe but he directed some of it, and it's great.

Now you made me curious..! 

Can you give me a compelling argument as to why I should give Jackie Brown another chance? What makes it your favourite one? :ohmy: 

 

Plenty of people say they like it a lot, but I always forget to ask them about what makes it so good, so... hi. :tongue:

You know, I thought about that earlier, how you would die of a heatstroke as you donned armor and ran around in scorching hot 30+ Celsius. I am glad you are not gambling your health on attending Conquest, because... damn... :xd:  

last year it was that hot

donned armour at 5 in the afternoon, not earlier

utterly unbearable in 35C in the shade without any shade

Maybe that is a personal indication that the rest of his works feel like they're supposed to be appealing to a certain group of people specifically during the time that it was procured and filmed. I don't know.  All of the actors do a tremendous job in depicting the situation the film involves and it's more of a cut and paste police-work type film rather than a shizzle's hitting the fan every 5 minutes type like most of Tarantino's movies. If you understand the concept I just described, it 9/10 times falls back on a matter of taste :tongue: Don't get me wrong I love the bulk of his filmography, but as fun as it is to occasionally take a ride on a movie with a fast pace and lots to pay attention to, sometimes film has a way of making you go in for the finer, simpler films with much to offer us like Jackie Brown, which ultimately puts it to the top of my list for Tarantino.

I think I might see that one too. I have not gone to a movie in a theater in five years. I have a "stay-cation" coming so maybe I'll break the streak.
