But which is the best Tarantino film according to the Moviepilot community?
Django Unchained has held the Tarantino record for over 10 years
This is what Django Unchained is about: Django Unchained is a typical revenge story in Tarantino’s oeuvre. The filmmaker also realized his dream of making a western. He sends the ex-slave Django (Jamie Foxx) together with the bounty hunter Dr. Schultz (Christoph Waltz) on a search for Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), from whom Django was brutally separated. A trail leads the unlikely pair to the estate of Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio)
The box office result: At the box office, the tough revenge western earned almost 425 million US dollars worldwide in 2012. Tarantino thus surpassed his previous record by more than 100 million dollars: Inglourious Basterds had grossed 321 million three years earlier. Meanwhile, Tarantino’s latest film Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood is in second place in the dollar rankings with 372 million US dollars.
The ratings: In the Moviepilot community, Django Unchained has an extremely good rating of 8.39. That would be enough for first place among the best Tarantino films if it weren’t for Pulp Fiction. The director’s most popular film scored an 8.44. The two films are separated by just 0.05 points, which is as close as it gets. With 63,227 votes, Pulp Fiction is one of the highest-rated films on Moviepilot. The average rating for Django Unchained is 45,434 votes
