Tarantino’s films are among the most acclaimed titles of the last two decades. Loved and reviled (or misunderstood
) in equal parts, the director and screenwriter has managed to captivate the general public with his own and non-transferable style, thanks to which he has managed to get his name signed in the annals of history as one of the greatest of modern cinema .

Tarantino’s 10 best movies (from worst to best)
Perhaps his career is not one of the most prolific if we compare it with other colleagues in the profession, but even so, every time he releases a new title, the theaters are filled to see what has good old Quentin to tell us. We like them all, but some more than others:

10. My best friend’s birthday (My best friend’s birthday, 1987)
Mickey’s girlfriend leaves him shortly before he celebrates his birthday, so to make it up to him, his best friend Clarence decides to throw him a big party so that he forgets her.

35-minute half-length film that, although incomplete, could be considered the first of Tarantino’s films. Let us remember that this virtuoso of elaborate montages never studied cinema and his only training was obtained from his experience as a worker in a modest video store.

9. Grindhouse: Death Proof (Grindhouse: Death Proof, 2007)
Along with his friend, also a filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, they both filmed the diptych that makes up their joint project Grindhouse, a tribute to the Z movies that used to be shown in the drive-ins during the 70s.
While his colleague would direct Planet Terror a few months earlier, Tarantino took charge of the title at hand, where he tells us about the adventures of “Specialist Mike”, a former professional driver who shot the risk scenes of action movies of yesteryear. However, aboard his “death-proof” car, Mike becomes a lunatic who dedicates himself to murdering the unsuspecting victims behind the wheel that he finds on the road.

8. The Hateful 8 (The Hateful Eight, 2015)
Tarantino’s last film to date has been this story, set in a cabin in the snowy mountains of Wyoming during the years after the Civil War . In this inhospitable place several people meet who seek shelter from the winter cold during a storm: a bounty hunter and an outlaw whom he has captured, whose destiny is the gallows; an ex-war veteran turned mercenary, the town sheriff, and four other cowboys. But little by little, hidden secrets will come to light that will turn everyone against everyone…
With an impeccable technical bill and a cast of top-level actors, Quentin Tarantino returns to his origins to tell a story set on the same stage for almost all the footage , as he did with Reservoir Dogs in his debut. In spite of everything, we cannot avoid certain comparisons that make the film lose out with respect to its predecessor.

7. Django Unchained (Django Unchained, 2012)
Second time that Quentin Tarantino would make us travel back in time, this time to direct his first film in which he would make his particular tribute to the western. Doctor Schultz is a bounty hunter who goes after two bandits for whose heads he was paid a fortune. In addition, he will free Django, a black slave who was going to be sold, to join him in the hunt. In exchange for his services, he has promised to help him rescue his wife, enslaved by an unscrupulous landowner on his cotton plantation.
With a promising starter and knot, Django Unchained fails at two things. The first, a hasty final section, although faithful to his own brand and that will delight lovers of the excessive. Second, a histrionic Christoph Waltz in his performancewhich repeats the same tics and gestures as in the previous Inglourious Basterds , no matter how much Oscar that was worth.

6. Jackie Brown (Jackie Brown, 1997)
The protagonist is the woman who gives the film its name, a flight attendant who, to get extra money, works as a messenger for a mobster named Ordell Robbie . On one of her journeys, she is arrested at the airport by the customs police for drug trafficking. In this way, Jackie Brown is caught in a two-way game, being pressured to collaborate with the authorities in order to stop Robbie if she does not want to end up in jail; while she tries to keep up appearances with the gangster to stay alive.

Among all of Tarantino’s films, Jackie Brown is probably one of the films that causes the most division of opinions : while some praise his seventies atmosphere, his casting of leading and secondary characters, as well as his ingenious dialogues; For others, it is the latter that unnecessarily lengthens the duration of the film, meaning that, at times, the north of the plot can be lost. We are among the first.

5. Reservoir Dogs (Reservoir Dogs, 1992)
What should be a simple robbery at a jewelry store becomes a trap for the six assailants, because the police are waiting for them at the scene to truncate their plan. After killing two of themThe rest of the gang is at the rally point, suspecting that one of them is actually a police informer .
Quentin Tarantino got into the public and the critics with this surprise at the Sitges Festival, which many compared at the time to One of Ours, another cinematic gem released two years earlier. With this letter of introduction, the director laid the foundations for his peculiar cinema, converted today into a cult work .

4. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (Kill Bill: vol. 1, 2003)
Wedding attendees are brutally murdered in a small El Paso chapel. The girlfriend, also given up for dead, remains in a coma for four years. Upon awakening, she will plot an elaborate revenge against the culprits., none other than his former comrades from the thug squad he was a part of, led by the ruthless Bill.
For his fourth project, Tarantino decided to split this bloody revenge story in two. In the first chapter, we accompany “The Bride” (code name “Black Mamba”) after her long dream, at the beginning of the tireless search for her, one of Tarantino’s most ambitious works. An ode to martial arts movies and spaghetti-western where real action is mixed with animation shots.

3. Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (Kill Bill: vol. 2, 2004)

“The Bride” continues to cross off the names of her target list , gradually approaching the ringleader of the attack that killed all her loved ones.
They say that second parts are, by definition, inferior to the first. Then one sees the continuation of this diptych started a year earlier and realizes how wrong this statement is. More serious, deep and tense than its predecessor, we witness the perfect conclusion that gives meaning to the whole , whose crescendo leads to an apotheosic climax full of interesting reflections on comic superheroes.

2. Pulp Fiction (Pulp Fiction, 1994)
The lives of the most colorful characters of the underworld intersect in the most unexpected ways: two hired thugs, the mobster they work for, his wife, a rigged combat boxer, a couple of robbers and a briefcase with mysterious contents .
Narrated in a non-linear way, but with jumps forward and back in time, we witness the consecration of Quentin Tarantino as one of the most imaginative directors of our time, where it is clear that, if he likes something, it is the long dialogues full of references to popular culture (“Do you know what they call the quarter pounder with cheese in Paris
”) and to the cinema.

An imperishable classic of the seventh art that is worth reviewing again and again , with one of the most iconic scenes of the 90s: the twist that Uma Thurman and John Travolta make to the rhythm of Chuck Berry.

1. Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Quentin Tarantino immersed himself in Nazi cinema in this story that takes place during World War II. In the forests of Europe, a brigade of Jewish soldiers who call themselves “The Bastards” is dedicated to ambushing German targets with the aim of causing the greatest number of casualties among the enemy ranks. In the ears of Lieutenant Aldo Raine, the head of this armed group, news arrives of a great event that will bring together the main personalities of the Nazi High Command, a golden opportunity to end the Regime once and for all.
An acid rewriting of history that proposes what would have happened if things had gone differently for Hitler and his henchmen. In this way, with Inglourious Basterds,The filmmaker dares to satirize the blackest chapter of the 20th century , giving it that touch of black humor and violence that are already essential elements in his filmography. One of the most essential titles of the past decade and, for us, the best of all, with a villain as rogue as he is commendable by Christoph Waltz, a true revelation of the film.
More reasons to praise this cinematographic portent?
Many pieces of the soundtrack are from the great Morricone.
