Quentin-Tarantino Movies

Tarantino’s Best Films of 2011




Quentin Tarantino is no stranger to making his opinions heard through the media. If he loves something you will hear about it. If he hates something you will hear about that too. He recently released a rundown of his 11 favourite movies of 2011. The list holds both pleasant and unpleasant surprises.

1. Midnight In Paris
2. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes
3. Moneyball
4. The Skin I Live In
5. X-Men: First Class
6. Young Adult
7. Attack The Block
8. Red State
9. Warrior
10. The Artist (tied with) Our Idiot Brother
11. The Three Musketeers

Last year’s list caused quite a stir online amongst fans, some questioning his favourites. This year will surely not be any different.

In the midst of Oscar nomination announcements it’s strange to see that neither Tarantino nor the Academy acknowledge Drive as a possible contender for Movie of the Year (or at least Ryan Gosling for Best Actor). Instead Drive was added to Tarantino’s “Nice Try” category.

Surprisingly, he critically slammed movies like Green Lantern and The Hangover Part II made the list? But The Three Musketeers? To each his own I guess.


Tarantino’s next film, Django Unchained, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and an ensemble cast including Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Samuel L. Jackson. The story about a slave-turned-bounty hunter is due in theatres December 25 to 27.
