Your Favorite Tarantino Film Is . . .

Preoccupied with Memorial Day marathons and an intense desire for chocolate, I completely forgot that today was Monday Morning Blasphemous Poll Day. I’m afraid I do not have a new survey for you now—maybe I’ll come up with one tomorrow—but I do have the results from last week’s poll.

Your very favorite Quentin Tarantino film is . . .

Pulp Fiction!

Kill Bill Part I came in second place with nine votes, but even if I hadn’t split the ticket with Part II, Pulp Fiction still would have won with a couple of votes to spare. Interestingly, Part I kicked Part II‘s ass in a major way during this poll. For my money, I agree with the majority of the voters. I love the final confrontation between the Bride and Bill in Part II, but I think the first film is a much more evenly balanced movie. Plus, Gogo! You’ve gotta love Gogo.

Inglourious Basterds came in third place with Reservoir Dogs right behind it. Jackie Brown and Death Proof tied for last place. At least they each got one vote. Honestly, it was more than I was expecting for either of them (despite believing that Death Proof is severely underrated). I think this might be the first poll I’ve ever done where every nominee got at least a little love. It was nice to see.

I will leave you a link to this, the Best Damn Monologue ever.

  1. I think the thing is that Part I of Kill Bill can work as a piece on its own, but Kill Bill Volume II needs part I in order to work.

    Also, I think things would have worked out differently with numbered voting (like the Best Picture Oscar uses). The reason Jackie Brown got so few votes (and Death Proof too, I guess) is because people had already voted for Kill Bill I or Pulp Fiction. Personally I would have voted for Jackie Brown to sit in a higher spot than Inglourious Basterds.

    • A numbered system would be interesting (if impossible to do with Poll Daddy) but, you know, I kind of suspect that if I asked for everyone’s least favorite QT film, Jackie Brown and Death Proof would still fight each other for the number one spot. Not that everyone would pick one of those films, mind you, but on average that would be my guess. I’ll have to test that out sometime, but I think I want a break from Tarantino questions, at least for a couple of weeks 🙂

      • It occurs to me that there’s a problem with the numbers system. The whole point of it is to ensure that everyone’s vote counts towards a winner. It doesn’t find out which of the losing movies is least hated (unless you do the whole process backwards, cancelling out the most popular options and tranferring their votes towards their least popular option. And that’s just weird).

        So yeah, my mistake.
