  1. Before I answer, let me say thank you for adding Show Notes because I can now keep track of when you do you conspiring.
    My answer for favorite Tarantino movie is Django Unchained.

    • I agree with Anthony here, Show notes are good choice, And my favourite will be Django Unchained, it had excellent acting from everyone in the cast, and i have to say this, but The hateful eight is a piece of art, just tell me a name of a director who can keep our interest in eight such ‘hateful’ characters for a three hour run time and that too inside a cabin mostly. QT has a special quality as a director, he knows how to tell a story and he has done it again .

  2. pulp fiction- no surprise there I guess. I really enjoy your reviews! This is my go-to site now.
    I have not watched the hateful8, a colleague of mine watched it. She said she found it very mysoginistic since the only female character gets beaten by larger reasons. Her crimes for justifying such treatment is hardly articulated according to her. I will watch the movie next week and see what I think of that perspective.

  3. My favorite Tarantino film is Inglorious Bastards. Who doesn’t love watching Hitler getting shot a thousand effing times? Also Sam can we like be best friends? You were probably my favorite part of the this episode.

  4. Hello there, conspiracy close friends. I’d like to thank you guys again for letting me do this with you. I had a lot of fun and hope we might be able to do this again sometime. I don’t have much else to say, since I answered the question of the week and gave my Netflix recommendation, so I’ll leave you by saying farewell, and never underestimate the power of laughter. Also, Gollum and Christopher told me to tell you that they said Hi.

  5. My favourite Tarantino movie ist definitely Pulp Fiction. But I gotta say, that in my opinion, his movies are a bit overrated. To me Kill Bill was as interesting as watching someone play Tekken for four hours. And even though Christoph Waltz had a great performance in it, Inglorious Basterds was pretty tasteless overall.
    Django was pretty good though.

  6. Ok so besides Chris Evans and Maria I really want to hangout with Sam now. You made me laugh a lot. Almost as much as Maria. My favorite Tarantino film is Reservoir Dogs.

    • Thanks! I live to make people laugh.

  7. First: I feel inadequate for having only seen one Tarantino movie in my life, and that is Kill Bill Vol. 1. I’m sorry to disappoint, I’ll work on it. Second: yes, Kayla, I do watch animal shows, though since Animal Planet became more about people and less about animals, my intake of animal knowledge has slowed ever so slightly. And of course I appreciate animal documentary recommendations on Netflix, those are the only documentaries I willingly watch

  8. I feel like Tarantino films would be a lot better if they had Shia LaBeouf. Just saying.

  9. (Don Obi-Wan Kanobi Voice) Hello my Conspiracy Comerades I am back for another podcast comment I have never seen any Tarantino Movies I am sorry. Last time I asked you your top ten movies thank you for responding. Here are my favorite movies of all time.

  10. P.S. That is going from 20 at the top to 1 at the bottom.

  11. Hi you guys should watch the CinemaSins videos on YouTube. One word hilarious.

  12. You guys probably know by now my name is PIXAR KING in an old computer writing called let example the dog ran over the frog would be T43 D0G RAN 0V3R T43 FR0G know what I mean spelled different read the same

  13. If you’re going to read my first comment on your show please do me a favor concerning my top 20 list. Take off the Aristocats, bump everything down a number and put Labyrinth as number 4. and read as I posted it except this small change I have only just seen Labyrinth and I love it.

  14. I listen to your fun podcast all the time but oddly enough I’ve never commented on your QOTW.

    My favourite Tarantino film: Pulp Fiction. It’s not a film I rewatch on a regular basis. In fact, I’ve only seen it once and it simply blew my mind (no pun intended, of course).

    A close runner-up is Kill Bill Vol 1. I work in film advertising and the trailer for that holds a special place in my heart for some reason. I found the film to be extremely weird and wonderfully violent when I watched it the first time, and that’s what I love about the film. It’s colourful, extreme, entertaining cinema with Tarantino’s sharp tongue drooling all over it.
