Tarantino’s Best To Worst Films (Inc: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood)

Tarantino’s Best To Worst Films (Inc: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood)

Best... Other Cr*p Quick Review

With Once Upon A Time In Hollywood now out, Phil takes a look at the Best To Worst of Quentin Tarantino‘s DIRECTED films to date…  (and yes there are more than 9)

 


Best: Jackie Brown

It’s Tarantino’s best work, restrained like never before (but brutal when it needs to be), it’s a great adatpation of a good book and is cast to perfection with the story & directyion being the highlight not the dialue or the actors.

——

2. Pulp Fiction

It’s brilliant and a classic.  The fact I cant watch it after seeing it too much at University isn’t the films fault but whilst it’s flashy and expertly done, I still prefer Jackie Brown overall.

——

3. Reservoir Dogs

A brilliant debut, raw and brutal and it still holds up today. Set the tone of Tarantino’s later work except that he has never shown restraint like he does here.

——

4. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Baggy for sure and displaying QT at both his best and worst, but Once Upon A Time In Hollywood also feels fresh, interesting and (feet aside) free of a lot of Tarantino’s cliches. Damn good fun.

——

5. Inglorious Bastards

It’s long.  It’s over written. But it has two of the greatest scenes in QT’s arsenal which saves the film from being a lot lower on the list.  Great cast, funny finale.

——

6. Death Proof

Yup hated by most , I kinda like Tarantino’s grind house entry.  It’s raw, over long (as most of his post Pulp Fiction films tend to be) but at least it felt genuine.

——

7. Django Unchained

Loved this on it’s release but in all honesty I’ll never watch it again.  Full of excess and flabbiness, Django is a 100 minute film stuck in the body of a 3 hour self proclaimed epic. And don’t even get me started on QT’s cameo…

——

8. Kill Bill Volume 2

Kill Bill Volume 1 was more fun, but I liked Tarantino’s first western more than his actual Westerns. The ending was a kick in the face to others but I liked ho wit played out.

——

9. Four Rooms

Directing on of the story segments (and the second best), it’s fun if totally forgettable Yet I’ve watched it much more than his later work and for the last time it showed that with restrictions Tarantino can deliver.

——

10. Kill Bill Volume 1

It’s fine and the action is well handled but it’s overlong and spends FAR too much time paying homage and far too less time kicking behind.

——

Worst : The Hateful Eight

Another film that could have been half as long and twice as good, Tarantino’s need for a strong editor and better producer are never more apparent than they are here.

Allied – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Allied has moments of being the film the creatives (and the audience) wanted it to be.  Sadly be it the uncomfortable chemistry between Pitt and Cotillard, the laboured story which doesn’t get anywhere quick or the tone which just doesn’t sit right, the film never fully delivers on its considerable promise.

IT looks lovely but then you’d expect that from a director of the calibre of Zemeckis.  So in the end far from essential.
