I like Jackie Brown, Kill Bill 1 & 2 and Death Proof, but for some reason I don't like Pulp Fiction. Have tried so often to get into it and like it but just can't. Reservoir Dogs doesn't do a lot for me either.

Honestly, you don't know how many times I've tried to watch it. I've only made it the whole way through once and I've never been able to again. I bought the DVD and tried - still nothing! Maybe I didn't 'get it', I don't know!

I love them all (Death Proof being at the bottom of the list) but interestingly enough, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are my favorites.

I'm looking forward to Inglorious Basterds this august even though the teaser trailer and posters don't exactly grab me.

I know he's been meaning to make it for about 10 years, so I'm curious to see what the fuss is.

Death Proof is the lesser half of Grindhouse (Planet Terror is awesome!) but I liked at least what they were trying to do between him and Rodriguez with that flick. I'd like to see the shorter Death Proof from the full 'Grindhouse' double, but it was never released that way here in the UK.

It took a LONG time for Pulp Fiction to actually grow on me. Until that time, I regarded it as a waste of celluloid.

The reason I couldn't get into PF was because of the way the story jumps around from point C to point A to point D, back to point C.5, and then onto F, and maybe, if we're lucky...onto point Z. I generally despise movies that do that.

But I finally forced myself to watch Pulp Fiction all the way through, and finally enjoyed it. Loved Reservoir Dogs.

Kill Bill 1 and 2 rocked also. It seemed a little more linear than Tarantino's previous outings.
