And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know you realize that life goes fast - It's hard to make the good things last-you realize the sun doesn't go down - It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Inglorious Basterds - The Jew Hunter is one of my all time favorite villains. The first time I watched the Basterds rip off like 1000 rounds into Hitler's face, I felt like so many rules had been broken. I was a little younger when it came out, but it was a feeling I hadn't felt before while watching a movie. The amount of great scenes (opening, basement, etc), the comic relief, the dialogue all together... just a perfect movie for me that I wouldn't change much about. I watched this for the first time when I was 17 or so, and it has been one of my top 5 movies ever since.
Jackie Brown - While Kill Bill is a lot of fun, its more surface level and less rewatchable for me. Jackie Brown might drag a bit, but the characters are so, so good.

Pulp Fiction Jackie Brown
Pulp Fiction is easily one of my top 5-10 favorite films and my fav from Tarantino. It was his coming out movie really. Although Reservoir Dogs came out before, I think he really perfected his neo-noir style with Pulp and we were first really introduced to his film-making. The movie is entertaining, it's funny, and it's so damn quotable. The Big Kahuna Burger scene... the needle in the heart... the gimp... Travolta and Thurman's dance scene... the entire movie is a trip. Inglorious Basterds is my #3 Tarantino movie and is really great as well. Just not as influential and iconic as Pulp.
Jackie Brown is my #2 Tarantino flick so it's an easy pick over Kill Bill for me. I think Jackie is one of the most under-appreciated and least known of Tarantino movies, and somehow gets lost in the shuffle of all his great films. But it really is up their with Pulp imo. So good. And although Kill Bill wasn't bad, I don't think it's up there in my top 5 Tarantino films. While the dialogue and action sequences were all great as usually with his movies, the story line was a little over the top compared to his other ones. Again, good movie overall. Just not top-tier Tarantino imo.
When I was 16 or so I got Pulp Fiction on DVD as a Christmas gift and watched the whole movie every night for about a week straight. Now that Kevin Spacey killed my love of American Beauty, PF is easily my favorite movie.
