escape from LA wasnt all that bad. only real big downside is snake learning how to surf via being told, just jump on the board when the wave is very high.

It was that bad. It was one of the few movies I couldn't get all the way through. And I was a kid when I saw it, so my standards weren't high at all back then. It was just terrible from start to finish. It was trying so hard to be a clever satire, but it felt more like a cheap, direct-to-video movie.

Despite what the public will say this will still most likely be a very good film and rank up there with Pulp Fiction and Resevior Dogs as Tarantino's best films.

Inglourious Basterds was WAAYY better than Resevoir Dogs. Hell, it might be better than Pulp Fiction.

Basterds feels more refined than Pulp Fiction. Pulp Fiction has a couple scenes that could be taken out. Namely Butch and his girlfriend. Basterds is pure meat from start to finish.

I put Pulp Ficiton at the top because I think Tarantino must have had a harder job directing it for having three different stories out of order combined into one big Leone tribute.

Fiction and Basterds are my two absolute Tarantino-favorites and I don't dislike any film he has directed.

I did not mind the Butch storyline. It was not bad at all with him killing Travolta and him saving Ving Rhames character from getting raped.

The Butch storyline was great in those aspects, as well with the whole boxing match "dilemma". The pawn shop scenes w/Rhames, "bring out the gimp" etc, are classic. But Tarantino could've made the scenes with the gf shorter and better.

Same, and I'll go so far as to say Tarantino is the only director who hasn't made a movie I don't like (and that goes for a genius like Lynch who I admire even more than Tarantino). There are films by Kubrick, Hitchcock, Malick, Lynch, Scorsese, Spielberg, Welles, Kurosawa, Ozu, Fellini, Allen, Polanski, PTA, etc. that I actively dislike or even despise, but Tarantino has a godly consistency of greatness that will be unmatched for some time. Hopefully Django won't break the streak.

P.S. I like Death Proof quite a bit, despite my patience being tried briefly during one of the middle sections.

Tarantino is always gonna be an acquired taste. Nobody "just kinda likes" his stuff, they either gush about it or they spit vitriol all over it. He's polarizing, I give him that.

Dogs has more 'meat' on it than IB. Kietel, Buscemi, Roth, Penn, Madsen and Tierney are all solid fleshed out characters, as opposed to IB, which only has the woman and the head nazi feeling as real and developed as those characters. The basterds themselves have only one character who has any decent amount of time spent on him, the rest are cartoonish ciphers, and Aldo is a bit of a cartoon himself.

As for the lovey dovey pot bellied pig scene in Pulp, that was genius. Butch's flake out would not have worked half as well without that scene contrasting it. The pot bellied pig scene also worked because it felt like how a real indulgent lovey scene would go down between two people besotted with each other, as well as establishing the gf as a bit of scatterbrained eccentric dreamer, that might annoy you, but that was what he loved about her, she was absolutely nothing like the dangerous types he had to associate himself with in his dodgy dealings, but it was those characteristics that also contributed to her forgetting the all important watch.
Everything that was needed to make the dramatic dynamic of that sequence work was in that scene, you take that out or change it, the rest does not work as well at all. I have no idea how you could make it different but work as well.

Why does everyone forget Jackie Brown? It is probably Tarantino's best. Flipping Max Cherry.

I don't understand it. Beautifully written, shot and edited. It is his sharpest, tightest film and every last bit of it works. It is only missing the complete unpredictability of Pulp Fiction. Basterds comes off really "talky" in comparison, because of just how good the dialogue and performances are in Jackie Brown.

Pulp Fiction has some of the most memorable scenes in cinema history. Basterds has some really intense scenes, The opening, which is near perfect, Shosanna seeing Hans again for the first time and the basement bar scene. But the rest of the film doesn't really match. Not in the same way Pulp Fiction just keeps hitting you with brilliance time and again.

1. Pulp Fiction
1A. Jackie Brown
3. Kill Bill vol. 1
4. Kill Bill vol. 2
5. Basterds
6. Death Proof
7. Dogs

I think Jackie Brown is his "least good". It's problem (if you want to call it that) is that there's nothing memorable about it, especially compared to his other works; not a whole lot of violence and no stand out, talked about scenes.

Magnolia I don't like at all. It does have some remarkable scenes, but it's a complete mess, and in my opinion not a good movie. Also, while I admire aspects of TWBB, it has serious focus and narrative pacing issues that really detract from its quality, so while I do like it, it doesn't get full marks from me, much less "Best of the Decade" plaudits like No Country or Mulholland Dr. or The New World or something. I think Boogie Nights and Punch-Drunk Love are PTA's only fully successful films. Hard Eight/Sydney is okay, but I'm very indifferent toward it.

"You shot Melanie?" I mean come on.

The film transitions so brilliantly, that it is less incredible scenes and just one incredible movie. Still, the movie has plenty of memorable scenes, and arguably Tarantino's best (the bail scene). Every scene with Jackie, Ordell, Ray and Cherry, which is pretty much the entire movie, is fire.

I'll say I scene I really like is when Louis shoots Melanie. De Niro and Keaton are great to watch.
