Rewatched all the Tarantino movies up to OUATIH.

9. Death Proof - Goofy b-movie, not that good, nor is it supposed to be.
8. Kill Bill - Volume 1 is pretty good, Volume 2 is not.
7. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - More to come. Mostly liked it though.
6. The Hateful Eight - Great score. Some characters are better than others. And some goofiniess. Why is Samuel L. Jackson speaking in slowmo? Lots of cred to Walton Goggins though. I just think Tarantino needed to work on the script more.
5. Jackie Brown - Great movie, specifically love De Niro. Just a little too long.
4. Django Unchained - Great movie with one strange comedy scene that doesn't really work and 2 endings.
3. Inglorious Basterds - Top 3 are where it becomes harder to place and could change on a rewatch. Christoph Waltz kills it. Each sequence is jawdropping. I want to watch it again right now!
2. Reservoir Dogs - Soooooooooo tight. By far Tarantino's tightest screenplay. Possibly his most "perfect" movie?
1. Pulp Fiction - Yeah, it's great.

QT fanboy. ;)

I assume you meant B plus for Django?

Django is a really really flawed great movie, thus B-.

Death Proof is a perfect B.

In a lot of ways I feel like Death Proof is exactly the kind of film QT has always wanted to make.

It's like the most B movie ever, which is why I find it kind of special in QT's filmography. Like, everything down to even the reception around it falls into what QT is going for; it's largely dismissed among his other films, has no major stars other than Russell, and has a simple and linear plot with plenty of dread and a huge payoff. It feels akin to the kind of films QT would have loved growing up watching in the 70s/80s.

Seems like I’m the only one who doesn’t think it’s the end of the list here, on good days it’s above Reservoir even.
