5 Most Unforgettable Quentin Tarantino Movies, Ranked
Quentin Tarantino's films become instant classics the day they release, and for a good reason — but these five are the most impressive feats by the director so far.
5. Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Tarantino's directorial debut, Reservoir Dogs influenced the criminal drama genre for years to come and showed writers all around the world how to build dialogue-driven narratives. Today, this movie is a cult classic, but back in 1992, it gave a younger Quentin Tarantino a massive headstart in the eyes of the global audience.
4. Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003)
In 2003, Kill Bill became an outstanding and sensational experience for its viewers. There were not many empowered women in cinema yet, but Tarantino's protagonist, The Bride, turned the tables and showed the world just how phenomenal a dark humor and violence-fueled action film with a female protagonist can be.
3. Django Unchained (2012)
Without a doubt, Django Unchained is one of Quentin Tarantino's most outstanding directorial feats ever. While staying true to the director's unique style, the movie delves deep into the systematic problems of racism and slavery, but it doesn't exist as social commentary: it's a witty and captivating revenge story, first and foremost.
2. Inglourious Basterds (2009)
For the sake of art, Tarantino is not afraid to mess with historical facts, and Inglourious Basterds is the best illustration of that. Forget how Adolf Hitler really died as it doesn't matter: this movie gives you a thrilling and totally Tarantino-esque story that is way, way better than what happened in real life. It slays and serves justice!
Pulp Fiction (1994)
If you ever hear someone say that any other movie is Quentin Tarantino's magnum opus, delete that person's contacts. If you ever need to showcase the director's greatness to someone who's never seen his movies before, just turn on Pulp Fiction for them.
Enough has been said about this magnificent piece of cinema, and we don't want to waste words in vain. Pulp Fiction is one of the best movies ever, and it's also the most unforgettable and authentic Tarantino experience one can possibly dream of.
