Quentin Tarantino popularized violence, satire, non-linear storyline and neo-noir in Hollywood. His filmmaking style is so distinct that you need just a frame of the film to know that you are watching a Quentin Tarantino movie. As one of the most talented directors working currently, he is also amongst the most influential voices in cinema.
It’s hard to find any director with as magnificent first film as Tanratino. Regarded as one of the cult hits of the 1990s, Reservoir Dogs’ is also one of the best indie films you will ever see. He has paved his own path to greatness since that film. An ardent fan of films and theater since childhood, Tarantino is a talent with exceptional abilities. What he achieved with ‘Kill Bill’, ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘Inglourious Bastards’ is beyond description. With that said, let’s jump into the list of top Quentin Tarantino movies, ranked from average to best. You can watch some of these best Quentin Tarantino movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
9. Death Proof (2007)
Considered to be the weakest film of Tarantino’s career, ‘Death Proof’ is a story of a psychopathic stuntman, a serial killer in disguise, who allures women with speed. He takes them for death rides and purposely wrecks them, having made his car immune to maximum impact. Though he walks away from the scene without a scratch, problems occur for him when he targets a group of females, among which is a woman, who is a stuntwoman herself. As in most of his films, Tarantino appeared for a short sequence along with a lead cast of Kurt Russell and Rosario Dawson. Though the concept paid homage to the action-exploitation genre, ‘Death Proof’ was not as good as it was supposed to be.
8. The Hateful Eight (2015)
‘The Hateful Eight’ is in many ways a mix of Tarantino’s own films, especially, ‘Django Unchained’ and Reservoir Dogs. The most striking aspect of Tarantino’s filmmaking is not the story itself, but rather the characters and the words they speak. In ‘The Hateful Eight’, he gets to show off his strength and simultaneously play around with the viewer’s mind. It may not be his best effort, but it by no means is an effort that you can scoff at; terrific cinematography and brilliant background score only add to the enjoyment.
