    All of these minus Pulp Fiction. Don't get it, can't stand it. Like most of Tarantino.

    I don't think anyone really likes his crap, they just say they do to be cool and edgy.

    Pulp is the only Tarantino I like. We binged watched it one summer fishing the BBC. 10 weeks with 5 or 6 movies on board.

    Alien or Pulp Fiction. I go back and forth. But if I come across either move on TV, my channel surfing time has come to an end.

    I also agree with Resinhead in that Pulp Fiction is the only Tarantino work I really fell in love with.

    Gladiator is another one mentioned and another one I'll turn on and watch over and over and over again.

    I liked Pulp Fiction, Dusk til Dawn, Inglorious Bastards, and a lot of others. You can't hate all of his films.

    My favorite movie would be It's a Wonderful Life. Great holiday movie.

    Favorite comedy - Caddyshack
    Sci Fi - Original Star Wars.
    Drama - Casino

    Animal house. It was more a a docudrama in my college experience but an all time classic.

    Animal House is a classic. I liked all the Chevy Chase movies too. John Candy in Uncle Buck was funny too.

    That is a classic

    Lee Marvin was brilliant in that movie ... he stole every scene he was in !

    I completely agree, not many people haven't fallen for the hype. I call it "cool at all costs" . I just picture a group of geeked out chuckleheads arguing over which not top 10 song is the coolest, not which fits the scene best but which is the coolest. Same goes for lines, and setting, and outrageous carton like stunts. I liked reservoir dogs but was thinking the whole movie "this is trying to too hard to be cool", same with True romance, everything line had to be a moses on the mountain moment. No flow, just forced coolness. Those two movies were still decent but I could feel the coolness at all costs coming. The rest of his movies are basically unwatchable with Pulp fiction being slightly tolerable.


    I think Tarantino was trying his whole life to make the Usual Suspects and couldn't.

    Sling blade, Billy Bob Thornton and Dwight Yoakam are brilliant......The Apostle, an incredible movie with Robert Duvall and Farrah fawcett. June carter cash plays the mother....great movie. Can't believe nobody mentioned Good Fellas. So many others. Hope this thread keeps going. Got to throw in a comedy....Joe Dirt.

    Fargo

    That movie lost me when I saw them with a bag of nightcrawlers for fishing in the middle of winter. I am surprised they didn't also show a tub of leeches to make it even more ridiculous.

    Best "Minnesota" movie was Grumpy Old Men.

    Jaws

    The best mini-series in the history of history is Lonesome Dove. I can watch it anytime, and the books are great, too.

    I must admit if I come across Zulu playing, no matter where it is in the movie, I stop to watch.
