    I would have thought Kill Bill, or Kill Bill 2. There was something in them that Pulp Fiction didn't have, but Pulp fiction is also good. The three are all better than Reservoir Dogs, but Reservoir Dogs is still good, and I haven't seen the other one

    Pulp Fiction for me - brilliant movie.

    My choice might also have something to do with the fact that it was the first movie I took my wife out to watch - very romantic isn't it?

    Resevoir dogs by far. The opening scene with the madonna conversation is priceless. I have to say, I didn't like Jacky Brown.

    What about Dusk till Dawn? errmm...yeah,.... nevermind.

    Pulp Fiction here, the "I dont eat pork" dialogue is fantastically random.
    Kill Bill 2 gets close enough though. Although I love the opening of Kill Bill 1 with Nancy Sinatra's "Bang, Bang".

    imo, pulp fiction by a mile. i need to watch reservoir dogs again, been a while, but it's second. the other three are tied for a distant third. i actually liked true romance (screenplay) as much as the last three.

    Kill Bill 2, I havn't seen Jacky Brown, but by the poll, it can't have been that good, well it's showing as the least popular.

    Poor Jackie Brown get's no respect. I admit it wasn't that great, but compared to most movies that come out it was pretty above average.

    But Kill Bill Vol.1 is a complete masterpeace. Vol.2 was spectacular as well but I couldn't relate to it as much.

    Never really got into the Kill Bill movies; they were kind of fun but without the emotional or dramatic impact of RD and PF. They just seemed kind of hollow to me.

    Reservoir Dogs, by far his best film. But to be fair they are all really great.

    Dogs. The coffee house scene reminded me of some of the conversations I've had with my friends. RDogs by far.
    Fiction was good, as was the 1st half of FDTD (b4 the zombies). Kill Bill 1 was amazing but I think 2 sucked eggs.
    He needs to make another one now.

    Ezekiel 25:17

    Jules: The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    Pulp Fiction has some of the best dialogue ever, and Samuel L. portrays his character in the memorable way.

    The scene where Jules and Vincent are talking about foot massages, or when Jules shoots the guy for saying 'what?', Harvey Keitel as Mr Wolf, all classic stuff.

    Kill Bill I was very stylish, but PF is the best.

    I had to vote for Pulp Fiction because I've had the desire to go back and watch it numerous times. The dialogue between Jules and Vince is worth many viewings. I also love the way the slowly-rising title contrasts with Dick Dale's high-speed guitar in the opening theme. It begins rising as Dale switches to his main lead. I once watched just that part repeatedly.

    However, the film that I admire most is Jackie Brown.

    Reservoir Dogs has great moments. A little uneven at times. I can't watch the "ear" sequence. I actually skip it in repeat viewings, which is a shame, because I have to miss "Stuck in the Middle".

    The Kill Bills were great the first time, but I don't have a strong desire to see them again. I will, I'm sure. I want to see Chiaki Kuriyama again.

    You must realize that Kill Bill was 1 long ass movie that Tarantino cut in half and released in 2 parts. There not seperate movies, you really just hate the ending of Kill Bill.

    EDIT, I forgot to say I voted for Resivoir Dogs. I've never seen all of Pulp fiction, and what I have seen wasn't that impressive. Jackie Brown was just blah. Kill Bill py.1 was good, haven't seen pt.2 yet it shouldn't disappointed.

    I would have to say Pulp Fiction. I have not seen Resevoir Dogs, but I think PF is better than both Kill Bills, despite its often mind boggling plot.

    I liked the 1st half but the zombies were rediculous (though Selma Heyek sp made it all worth it)

    since tarantino is foremost a director, "tarantino films" usually refers to movies he's directed, so the poll is complete in that sense. he wrote a few others (e.g. true romance) and produced some others (e.g. from dusk till dawn).

    Tarantino Didnt Direct From Dusk til Dawn, but i think he co wrote, and starred in it. (was the first DVD i purchased!)

    I voted Pulp Fiction.

    Out of Quentin Tarantino's films, my pick would be Reservoir Dogs. However, if you combine Kill Bill 1 & 2 (since it is really one movie), that will probably take it.

    The only thing I like about Pulp Fiction was that hamburger-line (that's movie right?)

    got to go for Pulp...the dialog just kills anything it┤s put up against....

    next comes Dogs...the tip dialog and the hear scene are amazing...even if you can never hear stuck in the middle without thinking of it....

    as far as from dusk til dawn goes i think quentin co-directed it.....mainly the part before they get to the bar....the part on the bar itself is great too with the cheesy vampires and hot salma...and it has to be in my opinion clooney┤s best movie ever...

    Have to go with Pulp Fiction and it's most witty conversations. Wasn't impressed with Kill Bill 1 at all. Found nothing appealing in it whatsoever. Just not my kind of film, I suppose. Fro Dusk til Dawn was fun. Reservoir Dogs also a masterpiece.

    So PF and then RD.

    Anyone ever seen 5 Rooms ? Wasn't that done by QT also ?
