Am I the only one that doesn't find his newer stuff that great?

Django Unchained wasn't all that for me (too long) and Inglorious Bastards wasn't memorable enough.

I must say though as much as I like his older stuff I don't like the Kill Bill's

Nothing beats Pulp Fiction for me.

Yeah, Pulp Fiction marked the peak of his powers for me, too.

Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained aren't bad films by any means but they are deeply flawed compared to the masterpiece that is Pulp Fiction.

I haven't seen many of them. I went to see Reservoir Dogs three times at the cinema, and it's still a favourite, as is Pulp Fiction. I quite like Jackie Brown, too, even if it is a bit drawn out.

I kind of lost interest in his films after those three, though. I have seen both Kill Bills, but don't really like them much. Haven't seen his later films (accepting Sin City, if that counts. That's a great film.).

Reservoir Dogs & Pulp Fiction...if you can include his screenplays then From Dusk till Dawn.

Haven't liked anything since Pulp Fiction, unless you can count a little bit of directing on Sin City.

I'll agree with this. Love From Dusk Till Dawn (so lets include that) and Sin City is a great film.

If we are including screenplays then, I forgot about True Romance.

Dusk till Dawn is probably my favourite, even with the bad acting. Django Unchained a close second.

Reservoir Dogs is still my favourite. It's a very tight, cohesive little story, great cast, great direction, amazing script. I think some of his later work has become a bit self indulgent and bloated, even though I still enjoy a lot of them.

I've liked all of his films actually, albeit to varying extents. Though I think nothing else he's done has quite reached the heights of Pulp Fiction for me (it's the film where I got my username from too - "Oh man, I shot Marvin in the face." ). Still, Tarantino is one of my all-time favourite directors.

Resevoir Dogs. I really fancied Tim Roth in this.

Definitely the Kill Bills. I like Pulp Fiction and Django as well and not so keen on the others

I like his films. Pulp fiction is my favourite too.

My least favourite are the Kill Bills but I still found them entertaining.

Pulp Fiction & Reservoir Dogs are my two favourite.

Haven't seen Jackie Brown or Inglorious Basterds, no Kill Bill 2 either, but than again didn't like Kill Bill.

And as for Django Unchained the least said the better.

Give me Rodriquez any day.

I liked Reservoir Dogs until I saw the original that it was
ripped off from,then realised that it was a second rate pile
of crap.Nothing else made by the egomaniac Tarantino has even
started to impress me!

It's probably Pulp Fiction for me. That being said, I suppose that I can see the argument that the film is quite shallow and perhaps requires more depth to its storyline.

I'd put Reservoir Dogs in second place. It's probably the most human film that QT has ever made. The characterisation is the strongest, and the whole "honour amongst thieves" and how ultimately there is none marks the film out more.

I'd put Django Unchained in third place. It does have a zest and a verve that is missing in some of QT's later works. It does however, have some flaws - QT's cameo and it goes on for about 40 minutes to long. The whole ending is perhaps a bit problematic.

I'd put Inglorious B@stards in fourth place.

I'd didn't like the Kill Bill films and I haven't seen Grindhouse.

I also preferred City on Fire, if that is the movie you are referring to. One of my favourite movies.

Pulp Fiction is superb. Who would have thought such a derivative work would end up being so seminal, as many have attempted to copy it since.

The idea of focussing on two of the type of guys who might be the villain's henchmen in an action movie is very amusing. They speak a lot, but you realise that Jules and Vincent are actually really dumb, as their awe of Winston Wolff who saves their bacon, belies the fact that all he did was get them to clean the car and drive it to a scrapyard, obviously beyond their wit to think of that lol

I've only seen both Kill Bills, Inglorious Bastards and Django Unchained. Inglorious Bastards is by far my fave out of all those, just fab.

I would put Inglorious Bastards just behind Pulp Fiction and equal to Reservoir Dogs in terms of how much I like them.

Maybe it's worth giving Pulp Fiction and/or Reservoir Dogs a go as it sounds like you might like them.

Pulp Fiction was just great.
I remember there was series on BBC 2 called I love the 1990's. Each year was featured one by one in chronological order and when it got to 1994, Pulp Fiction was the film they spoke about. I remember Trevor Nelson highlighting Samuel L Jackson's fantastic performance saying that Tarantino 'will never make a better film than that ever.' To this day, what he said was correct.
