While Quentin Tarantino may not be considered a blockbuster director among the likes of Christopher Nolan, nearly all of his films have obtained a rather large cult following. Famous for his combination of excessive violence, dark humor and interesting camera angles, Tarantino has certainly made his mark on the movie industry. Before I begin, this list is purely my own opinion, and I'd be more than happy to see how you guys would rank them in the comments below. Oh, and of course, SPOILER ALERT. That said, lets begin!

5. Kill Bill Vol. 1

Coming in at Number 5, is Tarantino's 2003 film Kill Bill, starring Uma Thurman as The Bride, who seeks revenge on an assassin that tried to kill her and her unborn baby. Famous for it's action scenes and excessive violence, the film has developed a large cult following over the years. One of the scenes in the film is so violent, that it had to be shown in black and white, in order for it to even be allowed!

4. Inglorious Basterds

Number 4 is Tarantino's World War 2 action movie, Inglorious Bastards. The film follows two seperate attempts to assassinate the leaders of Nazi Germany (Including one Michael Fassbender). One is by a group of Jewish soldiers led by Brad Pitt, and another by a French-Jewish cinema proprietor. The film is funny when it can be, serious when it needs to be, has a simply incredible villain, and, as with most films on this list, has lots and lots of violence, in true Tarantino style.

3. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Number 3 is the movie adaptation of Frank Miller's neo-noir graphic novel, Sin City. Whilst, in my opinion, not as good as the sequel, the film is still a brilliant one, and an absolute must watch. With Tarantino directing the film alongside Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, it follows four seperate storylines. The first follows a cop (Bruce Willis), and his attempts to save the life of a young girl, kidnapped by a gang. The second follows an old man, who embarks on a rampage to find the killer of his one time sweetheart. The third, and final story, focuses on a man who accidentally kills a detective, and gets caught in a street war between a group of prostitutes, a group of mercenaries, the police, and the mob. Each story is brilliant in it's own right, and with a cast headed by Bruce Willis, Jessica ALba, Benicio Del Toro, and Mickey Rourke, it's hard to pass this one up. Oh, and lets not forget the violence. Duh.

2. Django Unchained

Taking second place is yet another bloodbath of a movie, Django Unchained. The film follows Django, a black slave in western America who is brought by a bounty hunter, who promises to free Django if he helps him track down three outlaws. The cast is led by Jamie Foxx, with Leonardo Di Caprio, Christopher Waltz, and Samuel L Jackson also starring. As is Tarantino's tradition, the film is excessively violent, even unintentionally at one point, when Leo accidentally cut his hand whilst filming, but continued the scene, even using his bloodied hand as a prop. GIVE THIS MAN HIS OSCAR ALREADY.

Honourable Mention - Resevoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 2

Unfortunately, there wasn't room on this list for every Tarantino film, so these two recieve an hounorable mention. Whilst not quite good enough to make it on to this list, I highly recommend watching both. Kill Bill Vol. 2 follows the same path of bloody carnage as the previous installment, whilst Reservoir Dogs takes the idea of a heist movie, and pulls it off stunningly.

1. Pulp Fiction

Finally, we get to the top spot. The big dog. Number 1: Pulp Fiction. If you haven't seen this film, go and watch it. The story, similarly to Sin City, follows multiple characters (Including one portrayed by Bruce Willis, oddly enough), except the stories aren't told in chronological order. With the cast featuring John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Bruce WIllis, Uma Thurman, Quentin Tarantino himself, and Tim Roth, there is no reason why you shouldn't see this film. It's a masterpiece.
