All Quentin Tarantino Movies Ranked From Worst to Best |2021|

Quentin Tarantino was one of the most influential directors the Hollywood industry witnessed to date. His movies are one of kind. Tarantino makes sure that his movies have some unique point that was not discussed in any other movie till that date. By doing this, he waved a path to break the stereotype that a  director couldn’t incorporate more genres in a single movie.

Here we incorporated all Quentin Tarantino movies ranked from worst to best according to the audience reviews and our opinion.

List Of All Quentin Tarantino Movies Ranked In An Order From Worst To Best.

Hateful 8 (2015)

Beat by beat, the director teases you with the idea that violence can erupt any second, and the non-action goes on and on, to the edge of the intermission. But unlike other Quentin Tarantino movies on repeat viewings, Hateful Eight loses all its tension.

Quentin Tarantino has gone to elaborate lengths to make this movie look like a classic widescreen Western, in 70mm, but there’s nothing widescreen about his story which makes The Hateful Eight as one of the Quentin Tarantino movies ranked as the least likeable.

This remains as one Tarantino movie that never conjures Tarantino’s joy. The unpleasant truth exposed by The Hateful Eight is that his wit and craftsmanship and his artistic soul are impossible to separate from his sadism.

Death Proof (2007)

Although Tarantino is a horror fan, his movies rarely came into that genre except for Death Proof. This relatively short thriller in the double-bill jamboree Grindhouse (expanded to no particular end into a full-length feature) might be the purest distillation of Tarantino’s contradictory ideas about violence towards women. 

It’s a deeply dark, sadistic, and fetishistic movie. Death Proof is a female-empowerment movie — in theory — but dredged up from the psyche of a movie freak who loves women onscreen almost as much as he loves to punish women onscreen. Tarantino is on the record saying Death Proof is the worst work he’s ever released. But, why he had given that statement, In my perception Death Proof is far better than his own movie Hateful 8.

Django unchained (2012)

This was Tarantino’s longest film to date. Unlike Tarantino’s other movies Django unchained plot was a bit low in pace. The movie enchants that salver is bad.

This is Tarantino’s most financially successful movie, and many people love its retribution rituals. This film extends the spirit of radical historical revisionism sparked when his “Inglorious Basterds” killed Hitler, putting a slave named Django in the thrilling position to take bloody revenge on those who whipped, sold, and oppressed him.

Once upon a time in Hollywood (2019)

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” just might be the film Tarantino was born to make. It’s certainly one of his most mature efforts to date, a loving tribute to a Tinseltown of yore. This is the closest Tarantino has ever come to making a hangout movie. Unlike his other films, no one here is in a hurry to get anywhere.

The story’s main focus is on three people just trying to make their way in 1969 Los Angeles. This makes the film just kind of move around them in a way that may not have much momentum but is still enjoyable.

Quentin Tarantino was successfully shown his idea of How the present industry changed from the transitions of 1969. But the ending was stuck in my craw. It’s clear that Tarantino doesn’t quite know how to resolve the ugly reality with his pleasant Hollywood, so he opts for the fairy tale, which has its advantages and comes with a guilty feeling.

By the time the film reaches its closing credits, you feel like you’ve overstayed your welcome.

Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003)

I still didn’t understand why Quentin Tarantino counts “Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2” as one film. These two volumes are different from each other in every aspect but in terms of narrative, you need Volume 2 to pay off Volume 1 . Tarantino made “Kill Bill: Volume 1” with nearly all the best action scenes by mixing all the genres into this film.

What made this movie special from other movies of Tarantino is that he has never done pure action before, this time he throws himself whole-hog into the carnage. The key flashback presented as anime made this move even more special in Tarantino’s filmography.

The only problem with Vol. 1 is that all of the emotional heft and payoff is in Vol. 2, so really in the first volume, you just have the Joy of Revenge. But I am sure if you love the blood shredded revenge action movies then Kill Bill Vol.1 is the perfect movie for you.

Kill Bill Vol:2 (2004)

After showing so much action and bloodshed in vol.1,  Vol.2 is more of a talkie part with large conversations. But you can also see the full shape of the movie, and what Tarantino has attempted is somewhat experimental. He’s attempting to tell Beatrix Kiddo’s story without Beatrix ever doing anything other than driving for revenge. 

Vol. 2 has fewer action scenes compared to vol.1 but the main soul of the bride’s revenge was highly blended in vol.2. If anyone commented why you placed it ahead of vol.1 then the simple answer is perversity. But Kill Bill vol.2 also has the best action scenes like “Hattori Hanzo sword fights”. At last Beatrix kiddo met Bill and the conversations and plot after that a philosophical debate leading to the  bloodless climax is proof that Tarantino is twisting.

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

From his very first film, Tarantino delights in playing with our expectations, keeping the central heist off-screen and allowing character interactions to create suspense. It’s not the most emotionally complex movie ever made, but it’s definitely one of the most entertaining.

most people know Reservoir Dogs because of its set-piece, a long-lasting torture scene in which Mr. Blonde taunts, beats, and hideously injures a young policeman, whose pleas for his life are mocked. This scene gave birth to the idea that Tarantino is a sadist.

I do not totally agree with it. I think he is a sadist, at least when it comes to onscreen violence. But I also think he’s a deeply conflicted one, and enough of an artist to put his joy and disgust on the screen with little attempt to accommodate them.

Inglorious Bastards (2009)

Inglourious Basterds is a revenge movie in which the movie itself is the best revenge. The first of Tarantino’s movies to rewrite history. Inglourious Basterds shows a remarkable amount of maturity from the director while still maintaining his voice and style. 

Inglourious Basterds… One of the Quentin Tarantino movies Ranked as the Highly Likeable

It’s a film that’s far more controlled and willing to enjoy in long conversations. The cinematography of certain scenes is breathtaking and also terribly disturbing. 

The movie was an epic mess, but loaded with amazing set pieces and taken over by Tarantino’s most charismatically murderous villain, Christoph Waltz as Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. Inglorious Basterds is a film that will madden some and elate others but will never bore.

You can almost hear Tarantino speaking through Raine as he says “I think this just might be my masterpiece” after carving a swastika into Landa’s forehead. What he’s said was true, this movie was one of the Quetinn Tarantino movies ranked as the highly likable film.

Jackie Brown (1997)

Jackie Brown is the one Tarantino movie with a soul, entirely depends on a romantic connection. This movie arguably existed as the director’s most underrated work. It’s the best big-screen adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel. It’s a gem filled with iconic moments literally from beginning to end.  

This movie is as much a crime film as it is a love letter to its star, Pam Grier without whom this movie amounts to very little. Samuel L. Jackson is a perfect foil for Grier’s grace, and the movie’s music has left a mark on cinema culture forever.

Pulp fiction(1994)

The film that made Tarantino a household name is still a landmark.A second feature shouldn’t be as energetic and confident as Pulp Fiction, but Tarantino knows exactly what he wants to do and has no reservations about pushing his style

Pulp Fiction… One of the Quentin Tarantino movies Ranked as the Highest Likeable

Samuel.L.Jackson in the role of Jules should have won  an Oscar, no disrespect to that year’s Best Supporting Actor winner, Martin Landau

Every major character in this movie thinks they have things totally figured out and knows how the game is played. They’re completely confident in their lifestyle and what they do, and then Tarantino comes along to mess it all up and see what these characters are really about.

The film boldly wears its director’s personality on its sleeve, inspiring many others to dress, talk, and make movies in direct imitation which makes Pulp Fiction One of the Quentin Tarantino movies Ranked as the Highest Likeable.
