Ranking Quentin Tarantino’s Filmography and Its Best Moments
space

Pulp Fiction

Quentin Tarantino is the most influential American filmmaker of the past quarter century. A passionate lover of so many classic genres, Tarantino has spent 30 years re-inventing and combining those genres into modern films for modern audiences all while infusing a dialogue style never heard before and oft-imitated since. His movies are violent, loud, feature colorful language, and above all else, they’re just plain cool. Technically, his directorial debut was My Best Friend’s Birthday from 1987, but only 36 minutes of that project exists. His first official film was 1992’s Reservoir Dogs, and he wrote gangster True Romance and a draft of Natural Born Killers before hitting the stratosphere with Pulp Fiction in 1994.

With the recent release of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Tarantino officially has 9 feature films he’s both written and directed on his resume (when we count Kill Bill as one movie, which they do on the poster for the Once). And since rankings and lists are always fun, I’m going to countdown Tarantino’s filmography in order from worst to best, along with a mention of each entry’s Best Moment.

‘Django Unchained’ Director Quentin Tarantino Talks Possible ‘Inglourious Basterds’ Spin-Off ‘Killer Crow’

If you’re a big fan of director Quentin Tarantino‘s last two films, Inglourious Basterds and the recently released Django Unchained, you may be in luck.

As it turns out, Tarantino had much bigger plans for Basterds, much of which he had to trim away to get to the final film we saw. Because of this, we might just end up getting another movie from the director titled Killer Crow, which would create a loose alternate history trilogy along with Basterds and Django.

Continue reading to find out what the potential new movie would be about.

Quentin Tarantino Won’t Be Making ‘Kill Bill Vol. 3’ Apparently

Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino is well known for spouting off ideas for movies he would like to make or see made but never come to fruition, but when he becomes devoted to making a particular film, he tends to see it through from writing the script longhand on yellow legal pads to the eventual theatrical release.

He had developed Inglourious Basterds for most of his directing career until it was finally released to great acclaim and fantastic box office in the summer of 2009. He also came up with the idea for what would become his genre-hopping revenge epic Kill Bill during a late night bull session with Uma Thurman (who would star in Kill Bill 1 & 2 as the vengeful assassin the Bride) on the set of Pulp Fiction. The movie was released in two parts in October 2003 and April 2004 and was also a huge critical and financial success for the energetic filmmaker.

Geek Discussion: 82nd Annual Academy Award Winners & Losers!

Oscars

As always, we like to have the results of the big awards ceremonies here for all to see, and tonight was the biggest of them all: the 82nd annual Academy Awards.

This, the king of all awards shows, has faced much criticism the last few years, and their nominations this year did not help bring validity to their cause. Many of the films and actors were very deserving of their nominations, but many others were passed over in lieu of some big box office successes of questionable overall quality. And though they made a valiant effort to increase the excitement of the show with 10 Best Picture nominations, the end result was frustrating to we the film lovers of the world?

In the end, some fantastic films and performances were justly awarded, and as always, there were a few that rubbed the wrong way. Continue on over to the other side to see all of the final results!

‘Jersey Shore’ Cast Ruins Oscar Nominees On ‘Lopez Tonight’

Jersey Shore

What’s the worst possible thing you could think of happening to your favorite Best Picture nominees for this upcoming weekend’s 82nd annual Academy Awards ceremony? For me, the thought of the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore spoofing them would be pretty high up on that list.

Many Oscar ceremonies over the years have featured spoofs of the nominated films — the most famous of such were presented by Billy Crystal during his many brilliant hosting gigs. Well, apparently someone thought that these kids from Jersey Shore could bring some similar laughs to the table with their own spoofs, and a handful of them were recording for use on George Lopez’s Lopez Tonight show on TBS.

Click on over to the other side to watch a couple of these parodies…if you dare. Included below you’ll find The Hurt Locker and Inglourious Basterds, but you can also head over to TBS’s YouTube page for a second Basterds and Avatar.

Quentin Tarantino Might Follow Up ‘Inglourious Basterds’ With A Western…Sorta

Quentin Tarantino

If there were two words in one sentence you could say to alot of movie fan that would spark white-hot excitement, those words would be “Tarantino” and “Western.”

At a small luncheon recently held to celebrate the well-deserved Academy Award nominations for Inglourious Basterds, NY Daily Mail was on hand to ask a few questions to director Quentin Tarantino. Amidst clarifications of how he and star Brad Pitt don’t smoke weed when they’re working on a movie, speculations that Basterds has a fighters chance at pulling off a Best Picture upset, and implications of Best Supporting Actor nominee Christoph Waltz possibly moving on to star in a film called The Talking Cure as Sigmund Freud, there was a juicy little nugget of tasty good-ness!

Tarantino was asked what he would be doing next, and to my sheer delight, it did involve the word “Western!” The only problem is that it doesn’t sound quite like Quentin wants to make that gritty, old school Spaghetti Western that I’m dying to see him make. No, no — it sounds like he has an entirely different plan for what he refers to as a “Southern.”

82nd Academy Awards Nominations: ‘District 9′! Oh, And…’The Blind Side’!?

82nd Oscars

For we the movie fanatics of the world, the Academy Awards are just as exciting as the Super Bowl. Many of us throw or attend Oscar parties, and even go so far as to print out that ballot and lock our picks into place.

Over the past few years, this and a lot of other awards shows have kind of lost their flare. It has become apparent that deciding nominees and voting for winners is not about who is the best and who is most deserving, but about what has the best side-story and what the popular names and titles are. This massive flaw is hard to swallow, and the appeal of the whole event is bordering on non-existent.

To help bring more appeal to the game, the folks behind the Academy Awards chose to make a few changes in the format of the show. The biggest of these alterations was of course changing the amount of Best Picture nominees from 5 to a whopping 10, which meant that all of the deserving but not-so-traditional contenders (The Dark Knight) could get their chance to be underdog heroes.

Doom Discussion: 67th Annual Golden Globe Winners & Losers

Globes

Well, the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards were just handed out, and the winners and losers are now here for us to talk about.

The popularity and integrity of the Globes has consistently declined over the years as it became apparent that those who were voting were typically voting based on popularity and not so much on those who are deserving (a trend among awards shows, it would seem). Still, these are the awards that set the table for the big one, the Academy Awards, and what we can start to expect when those are handed out.

The show was actually better than it usually is. Ricky Gervais was a brilliant host, and even though he likely pissed a lot of people off with his edgy humor, it will be impossible to ignore the positive feedback you will hear from his job this evening. The awards played out as expected with a few pleasant surprises and the typical sickening winner from time-to-time.

For those of you who missed the Golden Globes or just didn’t watch them, click on over to the other side to see a rundown of highlights to seek out on YouTube and low points to avoid. Also to be found below is the entire list of nominees, with the winner in each category in bold if you don’t care and just want to peek at who won.

Golden Globe Nominees Revealed; What Do You Think?

Globes

The list of nominees for the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced earlier today, and you can check out the whole list below.

The Globes aren’t the most respected of all awards ceremonies (not that many…if ANY are these days), but they are good for one important thing: Academy Awards potentials. Many of the nominees and winners of Golden Globes will go on to land Oscar nominations as well, so movie fans watch with sharp eyes.

Just a glance over the list of nominees, you can see why so many people have trouble taking awards like this seriously. There’s a select group of movies that feel like they’re given these nods just because of their status and not due to their quality. These movies could in fact be the very best of the best this year — I do not know for sure — but when you see films like Nine which hasn’t even been released yet getting so many nominations, you scratch your head, especially knowing how much love musicals get JUST for being musicals. Or maybe even Avatar grabbing a massively unexpected nod in the Best Motion Picture Dramas category. Hopefully the majority of these are indeed the most deserving of the honor, and may the best films win.

Head on over to the other side to see the entire rundown of Golden Globe nominees and please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!
