Every Quentin Tarantino Movie Ranked Worst To First

Every Quentin Tarantino Movie Ranked Worst To First


Quentin Tarantino has already left an incredible
mark on pop culture. With eight films under his belt, plus a couple
more that he wrote but didn’t direct, we’re wondering which ones are really that good. So sharpen up your Hattori Hanzo sword and
pop open that mysterious, glowing briefcase as we take a trip through his filmography
to figure out which movie reigns supreme. “Vincent…” “Vincent… I’m on the intercom!” The Hateful Eight Despite featuring some of the most charismatic
actors in the business, 2015’s The Hateful Eight’s paper-thin characters outlived their
welcomes far before the movie stumbled to the end of its three-hour runtime. The tension that’s baked into the story just
by virtue of bottling up a bunch of suspicious characters wound up collapsing under its own
weight and evaporating, turning The Hateful Eight into a thriller that just didn’t have
any thrills. “No one said this job was supposed to be easy.” “Nobody said it’s supposed to be that hard,
neither!” The only thing it actually delivered on was
the promise of a truly bloody climax, but at the end of the day, that’s something that
literally every other Tarantino film does better, without taking its sweet time to get
there. “We still have a long way to go, but hand
in hand, I know we’ll get there.” Four Rooms A bizarre little artifact from 1995, Four
Rooms is an anthology involving four up-and-coming directors, with each segment set in a different
room of the same hotel, all united by a single character. “A lone bellhop named Ted, on his first day
on the job.” Having just come off the massive mainstream
success of Pulp Fiction, Tarantino got the prime spot as the writer and director of the
movie’s final segment, “The Man From Hollywood.” It’s perfectly fine, but it plays up Tarantino’s
tendency toward homages and winds up feeling pretty slight, especially when it’s compared
to the much better segment that immediately precedes it: Robert Rodriguez’s “The Misbehavers.” “Okay.” Natural Born Killers “Eeny meeny miney mo, catch a redneck by its
toe.” Tarantino’s original screenplay for 1994’s
Natural Born Killers was far more straightforward than what made it to film, but director Oliver
Stone wound up more interested in the way that media sensationalized murder and violence
in real-life stories. Because of this, he rebuilt the movie as a
satire that dealt with those themes. Tarantino’s love of wild, over-the-top violence
still made it through to the final version of the film, and much of the dialogue remained
unchanged, but thematically, it’s a completely different beast. Is it a Tarantino movie? Kinda. As for its position on this list… “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.” Death Proof For a movie about fast cars crashing into
each other at high speeds, 2007’s Death Proof is awful slow. There are seemingly endless conversations
that pad out the movie between the two big car chases, and they make the two hour film
feel like it’s whole lot longer. “You’re gonna have to start gettin’ scared. Immediately.” When Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez set out
to pay tribute to the grindhouse double features of the ’70s, Tarantino’s half was a note-perfect
recreation of those movies, warts and all. On its own, Death Proof has a lot going for
it, but in its original double-feature release, Planet Terror just makes it seem slower, smaller,
and a lot less fun. “Ladies, that was fun!” Reservoir Dogs Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs isn’t
just a phenomenal directorial debut, it’s also the prototype for virtually everything
he would be doing for the next 25 years. From the blood-soaked violence to the nonlinear
storytelling that would become his trademark, to the characters having hyper-obsessive conversations
about pop culture shortly before getting into incredibly deadly situations, Reservoir Dogs
laid down the foundation of what made Tarantino an instant favorite for critics and audiences
alike. Jackie Brown With 1997’s Jackie Brown, Tarantino showed
that he could tell a slightly more focused, smaller crime story that didn’t necessarily
have to sprawl out into a nonlinear epic. It’s got plenty of the same kind of references
to ’70s music and cinema that you see in his other films, but without the excessive violence,
so you can watch it with your mom. Except probably not. Perhaps most unusual for Tarantino, it stands
as the only time that he’s adapted a novel, Elmore Leonard’s Rum Punch, for the screen. There’s a good reason that it’s Leonard’s
favorite adaptation of his own work. “AK-47. When you absolutely, positively gotta kill
every mother in the room, accept no substitutes.” From Dusk Till Dawn Directed by Rodriguez with a script by Tarantino,
From Dusk Till Dawn follows a pair of bank robbers who hijack a faithless pastor and
his family in an effort to get across the border to Mexico, and wind up at a strip club
staffed entirely by vampires. As you might’ve guessed from that setup, it’s
ridiculously over the top, even by Tarantino/Rodriguez standards. This is, after, all a movie where the major
villain is a blood-sucking exotic dancer named Santanico Pandemonium. True Romance Even though Tarantino didn’t direct 1993’s
True Romance, he did write it. This Tony Scott-helmed film features all the
signature moves you’d expect to see. [Punch!] The story follows two hapless, lovestruck
criminals as they wind up involved in a crime that goes way over their heads, and a cast
of engaging supporting characters who feel like they could have an entire movie all to
themselves. It’s even got a truly brutal climactic fight
scene with its female lead. Just in case all that wasn’t Tarantino enough
for you, there’s also a scene where the characters discuss the greatness of Sonny Chiba. “Who’s Sonny Chiba?” “Who is Sonny Chiba? He is bar none the finest actor working in
martial arts movies today.” Kill Bill: Vol. 1 What’s amazing is how well the first part
of the Kill Bill saga stands on its own without feeling like the first chapter of a single
movie. It has some of Tarantino’s best sequences,
including the delightfully brutal showdown against O-Ren Ishii and the Crazy 88 at the
House of Blue Leaves, and Kazuto Nakazawa’s beautifully directed anime origin for O-Ren. With flourishes like that, it goes well beyond
just an homage and becomes something far better than the sum of its parts. “You didn’t think it was gonna be that easy,
did you?” “You know, for a second there, yeah, I kinda
did.” Django Unchained There’s a compelling argument to be made that
Django Unchained is Quentin Tarantino’s best movie. It certainly has some of the best performances,
including Jamie Foxx’s endless charm in the lead, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s turn as the
truly despicable Calvin Candie. It’s a revenge movie where the bad guys are
easy to hate, and it’s a story of love conquering all, where the romance is genuinely stirring. Django ends up balancing every aspect of a
story that, in lesser hands, wouldn’t feel this satisfying. “Django! You uppity son of a-”
[Explosion] Inglourious Basterds The opening scene of Inglourious Basterds
is one of the most tense, thrilling, and horrifying scenes of the past few decades, but it’s not
even the best thing about the movie. The scenes where the leader of the Basterds
demands a hundred Nazi scalps from each of his soldiers, and where the Basterds exact
gleeful revenge on Nazi troops, aren’t the best things either. No, the best thing about Basterds is that
it’s a World War II movie that manages to subvert the one incontrovertible truth about
World War II movies: we know how they end. Kill Bill: Vol. 2 Everything that we already said about Kill
Bill: Volume 1 still applies to the sequel, but there’s one thing that puts the second
ahead of the first: an emotional core that underscores the action. Plus, you know, that eyeball thing. If the first film’s focus is on the horrific
suffering that leads the Bride on her “roaring rampage of revenge,” the second is about how
she chooses to overcome it, literally and figuratively digging herself out of the grave. When she actually confronts Bill, their conversation
gives the characters far more depth than any blood-soaked step-by-step revenge movie could. “But I have only one more. The last one. The one I’m drivin’ to right now.” Pulp Fiction It’s the movie that made Samuel L. Jackson
a household name, resurrected John Travolta’s career, and proved that a complicated crime
story with a mysterious McGuffin, told out of order, could be a massive mainstream success. “What ain’t no country I ever heard of! They speak English in What?!” Think about how many times you’ve heard this
phrase? “I’ma get medieval on your ass!” …or seen someone recreate Uma Thurman’s
moves on the dance floor, or heard Tarantino’s version of Ezekiel 25:17 quoted in place of
the actual, much shorter Bible verse. Pulp Fiction is an experience that changed
pop culture forever, and still holds up as a justified classic. “Don’t you hate that?” “Hate what?” “Uncomfortable silences.” Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

  1. Anyone else after seeing the hateful eight being last instantly went to the comment section just to see if anyone else thought it was a masterpiece and not the worst

  2. I left when I saw Hateful 8 was last… and looking at the comment section I cannot be the only one who is seeing it that way!

  3. Of course thick stupid looper thinks the hateful eight is the worst. That film is only for the strong minded.

  4. anyone else think Tarantino's movies are all amazing and great but they're just misunderstood? because SAME

  5. As much as I love Jackie Brown, Elmore Leonard (RIP) actually thought the TV series Justified was the best adaption of his work.

  6. Did this list just put Jackie Brown above Reservoir Dogs?!?

    Awful……awful list!!! Terrible video done in a week where it will get THOUSANDSSSSSS more views than it deserves

  7. “There are seemingly endless conversation…” I stop there. Whoever make this list is clueless of who Tarantino is…

  8. 1. Pulp Fiction
    2. Kill Bill Vol. 1 & Kill Bill Vol. 2
    3. Inglorious Basterds
    4. Reservoir Dogs
    5. Jackie Brown
    6. The Hateful Eight
    7. Django Unchained
    8. Death Proof

    But all of them are great! The list can change depending on mood XD

  9. Hateful eight is super underrated. It could be 3 hours but if you’re actually paying attention to everything, it feels pretty average in length

  10. The one thing QT didn't do is have a genuine own impact on culture. Due to his constant referring and borrowing of styles from other cinematic and/or cultural era's what he does is reviving a culture that has already been there before. If it's westerns, martial arts, sixties or gangster movies. So he isn't creating a completely new culture. He doesn't feel the tone of today's culture or sets the tone fore a completely new culture. But he sure makes a big impact by reliving the tone of the past. So in a peculiar way, QT always is "a has been".

  11. What’s funny is, if you ask Tarantino, he’s only done 9 films of his own. He doesn’t claim his collabs and things he didn’t direct or write has his.

  12. You don't really know wtf are you talking about aren't you, put the hateful eight lowest on the list ?
    1. You never seen it and only listen to critic then judge
    2. You watch it and too stupid to understand
    3. You reading the script written by Looper, if so, please stop

  13. Hateful Eight was pretty damn good. Clearly people need to watch it again, but actually pay attention. I swear everyone who says “nothing happened” in a movie review just has ADHD.

  14. Tarantino needs to stop putting the same actors and himself in his movies and spice it up with newer talent! I still love his movies , just gets old seeing him in them and the same names as usual!

  15. This guy has no clue what he’s saying 4 rooms/from dusk till dawn/true romance and natural killers aren’t even Tarantino movies but even if they are considered the list is still absolutely terrible and kill bill is one movie

  16. This list is actually pretty good. Hateful 8 was a huge disappointment, even more so as I always wanted a Tarantino western especially as he often sites Sergio Leone (for a few dollars more) as his most influential director.

  17. My take…
    1. Pulp Fiction
    2. Kill Bill (1&2)
    3. Django unchained
    4. Reservoir Dogs
    5. The hateful 8
    6. True Romance
    7. Inglorious Basterds
    …All he above are good. The rest of the shit are unworthy of ranking …absolutely hated Jackie Brown and Death Proof…

  18. Idk why the HateFul Eight is such a underrated Tarantino film ? It's literally one of my favorites. I mean of course Pulp Fiction & Reservoir Dogs are 1 and 2 , but I would put Hateful Eight somewhere in the top 5 . It was shot beautifully , Allstar cast , the dialogue was great ! That scene were Jackson tells General Smithers how he killed his son was classic Tarantino dialogue , and Walton Goggins as Sheriff Chris Madix was hilarious. Movie had comedy, action, and drama . So I don't get how Looper has this ranked last

  19. In my opinion one of the best Tarantino movies (H8ful Eight) is last? And even more.. you are trying to tell me that Death Proof was better? Whoever did this list is out of his element.

  20. Films I’m Embarrassed To Admit I Never Saw

    Pulp Fiction
    Reservoir Dogs
    Goodfellas
    Rocky
    Star Wars
    Jaws
    Carrie
    Twilight
    Hunger Games

    Raging Bull
    Platoon
    Apocalypse Now
    The Godfather
    Full Metal Jacket
    Serpico
    Chinatown
    Casino
    Donnie Brasko

  21. Talking about the h8full eight: however, it does deliver on a bloody climax, but thats something literally every tarantino film does better
    Me: Ummm…have you seen jackie brown?! THERE IS BARELY ANY GORE!

  22. Death proof
    Jackie Brown
    Hateful eight (I still really love this movie)
    Once upon a time in Hollywood
    Inglorious bastards
    Django unchained
    Reservoir dogs
    Kill Bill (vol 2 is better)
    Pulp fiction

  23. I definitely do not think the Hateful Eight is a great movie, but there is no way that it is the worst Tarantino movie.

  24. How the hell is hateful Eight the worse when you have From dusk til dawn. Watch that movie again and tell me it doesn't look like a straight to DVD movie. Hateful Eight was a good movie.

  25. Saw 'The Hateful 8' as the "worst" film and immediately disliked. You don't know what you're talking about and I encourage you to research before making another one of your videos.

  26. Why was reservoir dogs so fucking low? Let’s not forget it started everything and still is one of my favourite movies after 20 years

  27. Four rooms and natural born killer are worst on the list . Before yall jump on me then tell me which is the worst instead of just critisizing without an opinion . Someone has to be on the lowest .
