You’ll Never Guess Which Film Quentin Tarantino Considers His Best

Quentin Tarantino was recently asked to pick his best film during a visit on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show.

If you’ve ever wondered which of his movies Quentin Tarantino considers his best, now you’ll know. The famed film director was asked to pick his best during a visit on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show, according to Variety.

“For years people used to ask me stuff like that,” Tarantino said. “And I would say something like, ‘Oh, they’re all my children.’ I really do think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is my best movie.”

There you have it. Not Pulp FictionReservoir Dogs, or even the Kill Bill movies, but his 2019 directorial endeavor that featured Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio as his main stars.

In related news, Tarantino will be shooting a TV series next year. During a recent press event for his “Cinema Speculation” book tour in New York City, the legendary filmmaker confirmed that he’s shooting an upcoming eight-episode limited series in 2023, according to another separate report from Variety.

Although Tarantino gave no further details about the project, it’s assumed that the series will be his own. In 2005, the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood filmmaker directed two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Reports also emerged in February this year that Tarantino was set to direct two episodes of hit FX show Justified.

Also during the book event, Tarantino was asked what comic book he would adapt if given the opportunity. The director said that he’d be interested in bringing Marvel’s “Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos” to the screen, as the titular character Nick Fury has long been played by Samuel L. Jackson, a frequent collaborator of Tarantino’s.
