True Romance is a great movie indeed.
 
I´ve voted Pulp Fiction. I can Watch that movie Again and Again and it´s just as exciting every time.

I liked it better than it's reputation would suggest I should have done, but yeah it's far from essential for anyone involved. 

True Romance, which he wrote but was directed by Tony Scott, is actually well worth counting among Tarantino's directed films though. Definitely in his style.

^ I only watched Four Rooms for the first time a few months back and wasn't impressed at all. Not one I'd watch again.

You're not really missing much with Four Rooms. I mean it's okay I guess but far below anything else Tarantino put his name to.

I've never seen Four Rooms, but have seen the rest of them. There's a few I could have voted for but went with Django.

A Cinema ticket here costs £12.50 per person without taking in account travel cost. The blu-ray will be £14.99 when first released. Since both my Dad and I will want to see this one it makes much more sense to just get the disc straight away.

Yeah, I'd expect it to arrive in December, honestly. I know, for example, The Hateful Eight was in theatres Christmas 2015, and I can't remember the exact date, but the DVD came out within the first 5 months of 2016. I know this, because my brother used my bank card to buy me the DVD and brought it to me while I was in the hospital, I got home mid May, and I watched the movie at least a couple weeks before then, if I remember right. So yeah, it shouldn't be more than 4-5 months, I'd say.

I almost went to see it, but my brother and I decided against it, because we're both saving up money for various things (I'm in the early stages of saving for a new console within the next couple of years, and he wants a new PC in time for Cyberpunk 2077, plus we're likely moving next Summer) so, and getting to a theater is expensive for us, since we don't drive and the nearest one is about a 20-25 minute taxi ride away, so we figured we're better off waiting for a digital or DVD release.

Most movies seem to only take a few months to move from the cinema to disc/download now. Does depend on the studio I guess. I know Captain Marvel entered cinema in March and was released on disc in mid-July. We might get Once Upon a Time in Hollywood by Xmas or hopefully early January. I'll be putting my pre-order in as soon as I see it on Amazon regardless.

Me too, will order it on blu-ray asap. I expect we'll have to wait until at least the end of year if not even Feb/Mar time.

Anyone seen Once Upon a Time in Hollywood yet? We don't get it here until next month but I expect I'll be waiting until the home release, when it will be an instant buy on blu-ray. 

I'm seeing a very positive reception for it on RYM. It's got a long way to go before it has close to the same number of ratings as his earlier work but the current average places it as his best film since Pulp Fiction.

I had to think about this, but I'm gravitating toward Kill Bill the most, with the first half having an edge on the second.

I'm not sure I follow. A director's style is what gives their work identity and Tarantino's is quite distinctive. If his later films did not have his signature style they'd probably come across as much more generic films of their respective genres and those genres give them identity from each other.

I love Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Bastards, Kill Bill Vol.1, Reservoir Dogs and Django Unchained. However, Death Proof and Kill Bill Vol.2 weren't that good IMO. I've yet to watch the other films posted, though...

Tarantino for me:

Top Tier:

The Hateful Eight
Django Unchained
Pulp Fiction
Inglourious Basterds

Second Tier

Kill Bill 1 & 2
Reservoir Dogs
Jackie Brown
Death Proof

Third Tier

Four Rooms

I'd pretty much agree with that, though I've never actually seen Four Rooms. I must add it to my rental list.

^You mean, Hitler didn't actually die in a movie theater that had been blown up? I would have never guessed LOL

But yeah, the way it took liberties with the history was genius.

^ I think the alternate history aspect helped with me liking that one so much. I don't usually care much for WWII films.

Inglourious Basterds. Any movie which rewrites history that blatantly is OK by me.

The only ones I'd rule out being my favourite are Jackie Brown (excellent but not quite a Tarantino classic), Death Proof (also excellent, possibly even underrated, but again not quite a Tarantino classic) and Four Rooms, which doesn't even get a look in. The rest are all excellent films that have a claim, especially if you look at Kill Bill as one title. My first inclination though is to say Django Unchained.
