The Ultimate Tarantino List: 92 Years of His Favorite Movies

This list is the ultimate list of movies Quentin Tarantino deemed as influential for who he is as a filmmaker or movies he just straight up liked. Either deemed his favorites (see links below) or having played at the famed QT Fests in the Alamo Drafthouse, this list has a little bit of everything.

Spanning 92 years of cinema, there is a lot to take in here. I have placed all of these in chronological order and hope to have all of these crossed off my 'must see' list some day.

FISTFUL OF YEN from THE KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, three episodes of KUNG FU (The Soldier/The Valley of Terror/King of the Mountain) and an episode of RIPTIDE (1969, Dir: Ty Hardin) should be on this list as well. Since they aren't complete features, I didn't add the titles.

The following links were EXTREMELY helpful in collecting all of these titles:
