Honorable Mention

Kill Bill Vol. 2 – The more emotionally resonant of the two, with great work by Thurman again, as well as David Carradine as Bill, and Michael Madsen as a regretful collaborator.


Death Proof – Its got amazingly thrilling car action, and a cast of lovely women who beat Kurt Russell to death at the end. It’s pretty good watching.


That’s that for our Tarantino list. If you think you can do better, you are fully invited to.
