I got this from this very site…it has quotes about the films from QT himself, dont know how it stands up now:
Rio Bravo (1959)
Director: Howard Hawks
Starring: John Wayne, Dean Martin
"When I’m getting serious about a girl, I show her Rio Bravo and she better fucking like it"
Taxi Driver (1976)
Director: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Robert DeNiro, Jodie Foster
Scorsese’s classic set the blueprint for Tarantino’s fascination with ultra-violence
Blow Out (1981)
Director: Brian dePalma
Starring: John Travolta, Nancy Allen
De Palma is probably Tarantino’s favorite director (he cites De Palma’s Casualties of war as ‘my favorite war movie’). This, before Pulp Fiction, also marked John Travolta’s best screen performance.
Abott and Costello meet Frankenstein (1948)
Director: Charles T. Barton
Starring: Bud Abbot, Lou Castello, Bela Lugosi
"When I was a little kid that was my favorite movie of all time. It’s not like thy make comedy now. The scary parts are really scary and the funny parts are really funny. Frankenstein actually kills people. He throws the nurse through the window, and she’s dead."
Big Wednesday (1978)
Director: John Milius
Starring: Jan-Michael Vincent, Gary Busey
"I don’t like surfers; I didn’t like them when I was growing up. I lived in a surfing community, and I thought they were all jerks. I like this movie so much. Surfers don’t deserve this movie"
Where Angels Dare (1969)
Director: Brian G. Hutton
Starrring: Richard Burton, Clint Eastwood
"This is my favorite guys-on-a-mission movie. I’m gonna do a guys-on-a-mission movie one day"
Director: Kevin Reynolds
Starring: Kevin Costner, Judd Nelson
"Kevin Reynolds is going to be the Stanley Kubrik of this decade. Fandango is one of the best directorial debuts in the history of cinema. I saw Fandango five times at the movie theater and it only playd for a fucking week, all right?"
Director: Jim McBride
Starring: Richard Gere
"Here’s a movie that indulges completely all my obsessions - comic books, rockabilly music and movies"
Days of Thunder (1990)
Director: Tony Scott
Starring: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman
"It’s like a fucking Sergio Leone movie with cars"
Rolling Thunder (1977)
Director: John Flynn
Starring: William Devane, Tommy Lee Jones
"Most movies let you down but this is ass-kicking nirvana"
it also has a picture of the “Streetfighter” cover…so that one is probably on his list too
