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?

    • Is kelleher fit? With Alison surely going back home for his dad's funeral, we'll be needing the young whipper snapper to play in goals for the next 3 weeks. Can't be fucking doing watching Adrian anymore. 
    • Rafa Benitez feels he has unfinished business at Liverpool and would love to manage the club again one day.   The 60 year-old Spaniard is currently out of work after latest club Dalian Pro in the Chinese SuperLeague in late January.   The well-travelled manager is known as someone who loves a project and Journalist and close confidant Guillem Balague has said that he would love a return to Liverpool although it is not on the cards at this time.   The Echo reported Balague as saying:   “There is a feeling of unfinished business with Rafa and Liverpool, I've always said that.   “Rafa would love to be the Liverpool manager at some point. Maybe in a time of crisis, proper crisis, not what's happening now.   “Maybe in a time where there's a need for a strong personality to steady a ship. But right now in the way that the owners are behaving and Klopp and everything, that situation doesn't exist.   "How can we think that Klopp has reached the end of an era? Look at the bigger picture, how can anyone suggest that?   "It's laughable. It's stupid and absurd to be talking about a future without Klopp."   The issue regarding who will succeed Klopp when the time comes has sprung to life during the last few weeks.   Unsubstantiated rumours a few weeks ago that the German was considering his position due to the significant drop in form by the team turned out to be just that, as it was revealed he was dealing with a personal tragedy with the passing of his mother.   There will come a time when Klopp does decide to walk away from this fantastic team that he built and while it will be a incredibly sad day, there will be no lack of suitors for the role.     The main question is would they look to bring back a manager past or look at someone with progressive Football philosophies.   Benitez unquestionably won the hearts of a lot of Liverpool fans with his ability to connect with the fanbase on and off the pitch and restoring Liverpool’s name as the pre-eminent team in Europe.   He fought the good fight against Liverpool’s rivals, never taking a backward step ruffling plenty of feathers and creating everlasting memories along the way.   His disputes with the owners at the time will go down in Anfield folklore, but his pre-occupation with what was happening off the pitch ended up affecting performances on it and his own judgement when it came to buying and selling players.   It would be harsh to say that Benitez’s best days are behind him, but would he be able to re-invent and alter his pragmatic ways, something that his old sparring partner Jose Mourinho has failed to do?   At this stage it is nothing more than a hypothetical scenario and may very well remain that way.    But like many things in Football, it presents itself as an interesting talking point.
