Pulp fiction and reservoir dogs were great. Jackie brown was enjoyable. Kill Bill was ridiculous but somehow worked. Django was utter shite. Inglorious bstards had an amazing opening 10 mins and then was utter shite. Hateful eight promised much but ended up being shite. Seems to be a pattern over the last 15 -20 years or so with his films so I'm not expecting much.

Some of Tarantinoís movies have to be the most overrated in history.

I would agree.  Although there are some like True Romance that seem to be underrated.
He didn't direct True Romance.

Still his film.

He's an acquired taste I get that but much prefer the earlier stuff he did.

All the movies he was involved in up until Death Proof are excellent and iconic in their own way.

Inglorious Basterds/Hateful 8 and Once upon a time are not his best work while I really enjoyed Django. Film is one of those things that's hard to please everyone and he's at a stage in his career where he can put whatever he wants on screen without being dictated to so it's hard for him not to indulge himself.

Will be interesting to see if he does his final movie that's supposed to tie everything together. The movies I don't like wouldn't be crap per se they're just not for me hopefully I enjoy the next one better!

Shawshank and The Godfather in the same list?!  :o

Shawshank is the most over-rated film imo. The Ed Sheeran of movies.
Most definitely but I still like it and could watch it once every 5 years.

Shawshank is a masterpiece.

Never seen The Godfather, and have no desire to.

Tarantino is a vastly overrated director.

I clear sign when a movie is very good. Tim Robbins with arguably his best acting performance and he was very good in Arlington road and Mystic River also.

The Joker out next month has some decent trailers  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAGVQLHvwOY  critics saying it's an oscar worthy masterpiece. Will it live up to the hype I'd wonder?

Phoenix is touted as getting an oscar for the performance. Ledger got one for his previous protrayal of the Joker. Bound to be unusual for two different actors to get oscars for the same character if it happens.

On Quientin.......he definitely is an acquired taste as screen said earlier
Pulp Fiction - good
Reservoir Dogs - good
Jackie Brown - trash
Kill Bill - trash
Unglorious Basterds - trash
Django - trash

Got an eight minute standing ovation at the Venice film festival.
