I just watched the highlight reel of a couple of older Tarantino movies and they really were great to see. Also looking up his career there were a few surprises in the list of films he had a hand in. There's more than 20 movies listed and some of them would not have stood a chance of being selected, so here are a few inclusions after the fact...

 

Curdled (1996) (Executive Producer)

God Said Ha! (1998) (Executive Producer)

From Dusk Till Dawn 2:Texas Blood Money (1999) (Executive Producer)

From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter (1999) (Executive Producer)

Hero (2002) (Executive Producer)

My Name Is Modesty (2004) (Executive Producer)

Daltry Calhoun (2005) (Executive Producer)

Hostel Part Two (2007) (Executive Producer)

Hell Ride (2008) (Executive Producer)

Past Midnight (1991) (Uncredited Writer)

It's Pat (1994)   (Uncredited Writer)

 

I expect the winner of this will be close between a couple of choices but he's been involved in more movies than I thought. Also Freedom's Fury sounds very interesting...

 

Freedom's Fury is a documentary film about the Melbourne, Australia 1956 Summer Olympics semifinal water polo match between Hungary and the USSR, and the events that led up to the violent battle, the match that what would later be known as the "Blood in the Water match."

Reservoir Dogs. Heavily "influenced" by The Killing and City on Fire  but still his finest hour. A downward trajectory since then.

He's extremely hit and miss. I've voted for Pulp Fiction, I like that and Inglorious Basterds, as well as Django.

 

I've tried three times to watch Reservoir Dogs and never made it through, once upon a time in Hollywood is probably the second worst film I've ever seen after Only God Forgives.

One of the best things he directed was the two part CSI episode called Grave Digger in a race against time when when one of the regulars in buried alive ...

 

Although I’d probably say this is his finest moment and I’m sure he’d agree

Pulp Fiction

Reservoir Dogs

True Romance

Django Unchained

Kill Bill 1&2

Inglorious Basterds

 

All top shelf films. Properly fucking great. 

 

I liked Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Might need to watch it again though to see how much.

Tough one that. Went for Ingorious Basterds, which is in my top 10 films of all time.

 

Just as a side note, I think Reservoir Dogs is one of the most overrated films I’ve ever seen. Not up on the nuances or cinematography or whatever else it’s judged on, but I didn’t enjoy it.

 

Notable mentions for runner up candidates are Pulp Fiction, From Dusk Til Dawn, Jackie Brown and Once Upon a Time.

 

Juts while I’m here, THE most overrated film I’ve EVER seen, is Quadrophnia. What a pile of fucking shite. Cult classic my fucking arse.

I've come to really resist Tarantino films. Usually for people who think they know a lot about cinema but think that Pulp Fiction is the pinnacle of Hollywood, or men who think films have to be sweary and violent to be grown-up.

 

The man needs an editor so I'd probably say Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown or Pulp Fiction. I deeply distrust people who think the Kill Bill films are good.

Pulp Fiction is a master piece in every way. There is not a single moment in that movie that isn't brilliant. You can start watching it 45 minutes in and still love it.

 

Once upon time is another brilliant movie, I don't understand how anyone can watch it and think otherwise.

I've watched it over 100 times and I still pick up on something new every time. A small thing, the little details. It truly is a masterpiece.

Usually listing their top five films, which consist of at least four examples of sweary gangsters.

Tarantino seems to be obsessed with details, Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece but I wonder if a couple of mistakes were intentional. In the introductory scene when Bonnie stands on the table she says...

 

"If any of you fucking pricks move, I'll execute every mother-fucking one of you!"

 

In the same scene when Vincent and Jules are in the cafe, Bonnie stands on the table and says...

 

"If any of you fucking pricks move, I'll execute every one of you motherfuckers."

Out of interest what are your top 5 favourite films? I expect we will see a few Spencer Tracy movies here?

    • Nothing to see here ....      
    • Gini Wijnaldum has attracted further interest on the continent with Paris Saint Germain and Inter Milan reportedly very keen on signing the midfielder.   It is common knowledge that the Dutchman’s current contract expires in June, but to this point there has been no movement on a new deal leading to strong speculation that the very popular figure will be departing come the end of this campaign.   The most recent comment by either party came last month with Wijnaldum rather blunt about how things stand.   "There is no update yet. I also think I’m not the one who should give the update.   "The club should do that. So if there is an update, the club will give it."     The 30 year-old came very close to departing in the past off-season as new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman had identified his countryman as a key part of his rebuilding plan, however Jurgen Klopp was able to hang to a key member of his squad.   And it is a good thing too as Wijnaldum has been at his consistent best and his durability has been a godsend for the manager in a squad wrecked by significant injuries.   He has made 37 appearances in all competitions and is set to lead the team in Jordan Henderson’s absence.   The Mirror ( via French publication Le Parisien) reports that  PSG have made it known that they are particularly interested in landing Wijnaldum on a free transfer while Inter Milan are monitoring the situation.   It is clear that if the Dutchman does depart Liverpool after five seasons and over 200 appearances, he will leave a sizable hole in the Liverpool midfield as well as his general impact in and around the squad.

    • Surprised the Brazilian PM didn't get involved to be honest. He's a massive twat and was fully expecting to make differenent rules for the National keeper. 
    • Still no official word on his injury after a week.  That makes me nervous.
