This is it, the Big Kahuna burger. After some eight weeks and thousands of votes, we’ve arrived at the final matchup. As always, you know the deal. After re-watching Quentin Tarantino’s entire filmography in September, the thought struck me: where do they all rank?
Last week in the second semifinal matchup, #3 seed “Inglourious Basterds” beat #2 seed “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” 59% to 41%.
Despite some early competitiveness and a very narrow lead, “Inglourious Basterds” ultimately prevailed with a decisive victory. Now we’ll see if it can continue its winning streak and take down “Pulp Fiction.”
I’m honestly not entirely sure which way this one is going to go. “Pulp Fiction” is the #1 seed for a reason. It’s considered QT’s greatest work and ranks an astonishing 8th on the IMDb Top 250 list. However, in a recent Reddit thread about overrated movies, or at least ones that are typically beloved but a minority of people actually hate, I was surprised to see how often “Pulp Fiction” was mentioned. Furthermore, “Inglourious Basterds” is universally celebrated and the more recent of the two, perhaps benefitting from a bit of recency bias.
