THE HATEFUL EIGHT was one of his weaker efforts for me but don't get me wrong it's still a pretty good movie with some memorable scenes and dialogue.

One thing I've noticed about QT is that he has a very, very high level of self-awareness about his own career. He knows the difference between his regular stuff and his truly great stuff, and has a great sense of timing.
After JACKIE BROWN when everybody thought they knew Tarantino's deal, he unleashed KILL BILL. After that and DEATH PROOF and his exploitation phase, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS which was so fresh and unexpected at the time.
I think it's that time again. After two spaghettis, this new film will be a totally different thing nobody will be expecting I'm sure. He summoned probably the two most iconic actors of this generation for this (who hadn't worked together before I think?). The movie won't disappoint.
Watched the man's filmography again for the umpteenth time the past few weeks so here's my QT Top 8 as of now, you're welcome to join in!
1. PULP FICTION
2. INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
3. KILL BILL
4. RESERVOIR DOGS
5. DJANGO UNCHAINED
6. JACKIE BROWN (a great film, but the less "Tarantinoesque" of his)
7. THE HATEFUL EIGHT
8. DEATH PROOF (it does what it means to do perfectly and it's great fun but still a minor oeuvre)
