Pulp Fiction (1994)
Going in to this film there was a minor part in me that feared that Tarantino would take the Manson family murders and turn it into something exploitative and slightly distasteful. Thankfully, ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is not that kind of a film. It's not really about Manson either. Instead Tarantino has crafted a film that is sweet, warm, gentle and slightly melancholic. A film about aging, friendship and the fear of being made redundant. It's a time capsule that perfectly captures the end of an era, the end of something that good and pure. It provides us with the feeling of being in a fairy tale. Which is, as we all now, occasionally better than what reality has to offer us.
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Tarantino's first proper film is an impressive debut and a great showcase for how 'less is more' usually works rather well. We're never shown the robbery, yet through the events and dialogue the film decides to throw at us, we're given a much more interesting idea of how everything worked out. As a heist film, that's uniquely refreshing.
Yet, the most fascinating thing here is the characters. While not every character that is present at the diner table at the beginning of the film gets a chance to shine, those who do provides themselves to be instantly memorable with the help of great acting and Tarantino's writing. He has sharpened his grasp on filmmaking over the years, but his debut is very impressive.
Django Unchained (2012)
This is a bloody entertaining film. Quentin Tarantino is an entertainer. He makes films for the audience. He goes out in full gear and creates a film filled with so much energy. A true crowd pleaser. It's bloody, memorable, bold and stylish. It's a long film, but it manages to be perfectly paced without boring me for a second.
Tarantino is a master at creating memorable characters. His writing abilities combined with outstanding performances from the cast is one of the many ingredients in this delightful film. If it were up to me, I would have given an Oscar nomination to Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as Christoph Waltz (who rightfully deserves his.) The thing that annoyed me about it was that Tarantino just had to show up in front of the screen. He can't act. Nevertheless, film is about entertainment and this was fucking entertaining.
The Hateful Eight (2015)
A film that plays somewhat as a mystery as its story is slowly unwrapped until it finally explodes into pure mayhem once all the pieces have fallen together. A dialogue heavy film that truly shows the importance of building up characters and tension, while consistently sprinkling up the film with minor details that fully comes to life in the end.
One thing that I really want to mention is the score by Ennio Morricone. It's outstanding. The cast is also, as usual in Tarantino films, brilliant. Particularly Samuel L. Jackson and Walton Goggins stands out. Still it is Tarantino's unique sense of filmmaking that makes The Hateful Eight so great. This is something that he have truly mastered over the years, and thus creating a perfect film experience.
Inglourious Basterds (2009)
