Quentin Tarantino Movies, Ranked

It’s time to unroll my ranking of Quentin Tarantino films, considering that the director has announced that his next film will be his last.

Sometimes I wish I had been born in another era. For example, if I had been born in 1962 instead of 1977, I would have been 15 in 1977 and could have witnessed firsthand the birth of punk and hardcore. But then I finally come back and feel grateful that I was born when I was born.

To be born in 77 means to be 15 in 1992, and that’s when Quentin Tarantino released his first movie, reservoir dogs. The movie was a revelation for Generation X like me. Infinitely quotable, surprisingly cool, and with a soundtrack of 70s throwbacks that our parents didn’t beat to death. It’s a solid start for a first director, and it set the tone for what was to come from Tarantino.

Flash-forward two years and you get pulp Fiction, Tarantino’s groundbreaking film. More of his signature cool and kitsch, more of his 70s fetish, more killer tracks on the soundtrack. And it was gratifying when Pulp Fiction exploded: now a whole bunch of new fans have returned to Pulp Fiction, and it’s always fun to share your favorite movies with friends.

I remember watching reservoir dogs on VHS at a friend’s house, probably rented from Blockbuster Video. And I remember making an appointment to see pulp Fiction on its first theatrical release. I was so blown away that I went back to see it a second time with friends. So you can probably guess – spoiler alert – that these two will end up pretty high in my rankings.
