It's 2b with Reservoir Dogs being 2a for me.

It's his most fun, movie, I think - he grafted a noir story onto a heist story, with an unusual twist on the "Hooker with a heart of gold" archtype. It's extraordinarily fun to watch the characters - some of the best, overall, individual acting in any Tarantino effort, too.

Inglorious Bastards to me is easily Tarantino's best film, but Jackie Brown is pretty damn terrific in its own rights.

I didn't like Jackie Brown at all. Never felt any level of authenticity. Felt like a cheap rip off of Pulp Fiction. Did not even finish it. That was a long time ago. I should give it another try.

Pulp Fiction is his best film and a cultural icon.

I'm kinda with you on that one. The opening scene to that movie is fantastic. Edge of your seat stuff

I think so. It's certainly my favorite one of his.

it's not a popular choice but it is also my favorite followed by Kill Bill 2. I was never a big fan of Pulp Fiction and haven't seen Hateful 8 yet (just due to time).

i think Jackie Brown is tarantino's only "normal"/ straightforward movie.

Everything else is either quirky in the presentation (such as pulp fiction or resevoir dogs, which is presented from different perspectives and/or out of chronological order) or has a distinct theme behind it; either western, ww2 or samurai.

I enjoyed Jackie Brown, but it'll always be Pulp Fiction for me.

Great soundtrack plus Robert De Niro's last great acting performance.


Love the movie, love the soundtrack, and love De Niro's character but I have to disagree that it was his last great acting role.

Great movie but nowhere near his best. I'd put Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds, etc. above it.
