The good stuff
Worthy but flawed
Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood
Overly long and lacking direction, the first two hours are purely there to paint a portrait of an era. That's fine if you love the 60s, I couldn't care less really. The final 45 minutes are a small improvement, even so Tarantino isn't really wicked enough to pull it off. There are some decent scenes in there, but they fade way in a film directed by a man too in love with himself to make a proper cut.
The Hateful Eight
Kill Bill 2
Kill Bill 1
This may be innovative and fresh for the regular Hollywood fan, but it's weak and uninspired for those who are somewhat familiar with the source material. As an ode to Asian cinema, Kill Bill 1 falls completely flat and ends up being completely inferior.
Tarantino tries a lot, but doesn't succeed in anything. The attempt at a stylish ending in the snow ? Kitano does it ten times better with 1 single shot. Impressive fight choreography? Well, the film was released in Belgium together with Hero, so no comparison. The editing and shot composition? Actors are so incompetent that everything is edited to pieces just to disguise their failings.
So isn't there anything worthwhile? Chiaki Kuriyama was cool. The only one who managed to come across as bad ass. It's a shame she leaves the film in one of the dumbest ways possible. Tarantino simply isn't cut out for this type of cinema.
