I enjoy Quentin Tarantino’s movies, most of them are very good, if not excellent.

Since his first movie in 1992, Reservoir Dogs, and his huge follow-up in Pulp Fiction, he’s only directed seven more movies.

So it makes it easy to rank them.

I also recently re-watched them all (within the last couple years) and finally got around to witnessing the turd that is Death Proof.

Let the sparks fly!

Not Good
9) Death Proof – Nope.

8) Jackie Brown

Very Good
7) Kill Bill Vol. 1 – Enjoyable, but I’m not a fan of over the top battle scenes. (Never got into martial arts B movies.)
6) The Hateful Eight – This gets a bit long in the tooth, but the scenes are great to re-watch a second time when you already know the twist.

5) Kill Bill Vol. 2 – A slow burn, the final requiem is a treat.
4) Django Unchained – Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio are all just great.
3) Reservoir Dogs – Still enjoy putting on the soundtrack, and will never get the scene with Stealers Wheel’s “Stuck In the Middle With You” out of my ear (oops, sorry).

2) Pulp Fiction – Bring out the gimp! Ah, memories of college.
1) Inglorious Basterds – Did I like this more than Pulp Fiction? Yes, yes I did. One of my favorite scenes is Brad Pitt trying to pass as ‘Eye’talian at the final chapter’s Nazi movie premiere and Christoph Waltz gleefully exposing him.

Random Things

I know, I know.

I need to post more often. I have a few ideas knocking around in my head, just need to find a pair of tines to yank them out and splash them on the blog.

For example, I have ‘incredible’ ideas on Movie Lists and posting a ‘few’ photos from recent trips (maybe not so recent anymore – from 2016 and early 2017…haha).

Despite what’s lacking here, I haven’t been slacking!

I’ve been writing a bit about living in Washington, DC at this blog: A DC Journey (https://adcjourney.com/). (Get it? This blog is called ‘A Random Journey’…and frankly gets fairly random.)

Or if you don’t like words, follow photos: https://www.instagram.com/adcjourney/

But soon, the ideas convalescing in my head will get their day in court!
