I haven't enjoyed a single one of his films - they are cliched nonsense.

So there was no real reason for you to post in this thread. Sometimes, I see threads about Harry Potter and the Hobbit. As I don't like any of those films, I simply don't get involved in the threads.

I can accept you may find them 'nonsense', but in what way are they cliched? Tarantino rips off plenty of films, sure, but he doesn't tend to lazily re-hash generic ideas through lack of imagination.

ETA: I think Reservoir Dogs is a fine debut but is much too spare to really contend with the others.
Like another poster indicated, I think that's actually a good thing in a way. I feel that Tarantino is a bit undisciplined when it comes to editing his films (particularly in his latter films), so the fact that Reservoir Dogs appears sparse means to me that he kept the film tight and didn't let it meander about and get distracted like many of his other films tend to do. For what is a small story, Reservoir Dogs is efficient in telling it, and that increases its impact. Anyway, I have the film's poster up on a wall, so maybe that's got something to do with it.

Reservoir Dogs is his best film by a mile
I think PUlp Fiction is a more complete film in terms of production and narrative, although the acting in both is very good.

^^ this. QT leans towards self indulgence in his latter films, RD is his purest film - a simple story brilliantly told. IMO it couldn't be improved in any way, it's his only film I can say that about.

I'd rather he be more ambitious and perhaps not hit every note in everyone's opinion - as he has arguably gotten with each film for the most part - than stay small and safe and not take any risks.

I've just seen Django a third time and it was even better. I can't sing that film's praises enough. I can't stand the idea that it's too long; if anything, it could be longer. How do you show what Django has learned from Dr. King without the last part of that film? How does Samuel L. Jackson shine even brighter (or glower even darker) without that climactic scene? I could go on, but I don't think a frame is wasted in Django.

True, in a way. But it is also his most openly influenced (some might say derivative) film. Make of this what you will.

As a director, early QT was never quite my cup of tea, but there was obviously talent at work.

Jackie Brown
Inglorious Basterds
...
...
Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
...
...
Death Proof
Kill Bill 1

Haven't seen Django yet, or KB 2 (one was enough...)

Haven't seen Django yet. None of my friends are particularly into QT, so it may have to wait until PPV.

Inglorious Basterds (love it, opening scene is incredible)
Pulp Fiction (seems so effortlessly smart now)
Kill Bill Vol 2 (much more traditional QT than Vol 1)
Reservoir Dogs
Kill Bill Vol 1
Jackie Brown (Have only seen this once and remember very little of it)
>
>
>
Death Proof (horrendous. Is it supposed to be? Probably, but that's no excuse)

Okay loved Pulp Fiction. Liked Reservoir Dogs. Loathed Inglorius B. The same with Django. Its such a mish mash....
Slavery with a comedy element as well as a musical and great scenery.. I think the guy is smoking too much.

No one mentioned Sukyaki Western Django?
Edit: Nvm He only had a role in it.

Well you did ask for peeps opinion. This is mine. Sorry to disappoint. Also when it comes to the Academy sometimes it is a matter of who is popular and who isn't....The man of the moment so to speak.

I'd say True Romance and Dusk Till Dawn are Tony Scott and Robert Rodriguez films respectively. Generally the director 'owns' the film in the sense of '### films'.
It's a matter of opinion and semantics.

Would you not call Die Hard a Bruce Willis film?

Are Ace Ventura, Liar Liar etc not referred to as Jim Carey films?

If the topic had specifically stated "Tarrantino directed films" then fine, otherwise it's up for debate.
