Quentin Tarantino’s Best and Worst of 2011

I always find Tarantino’s best and worst lists to be conversation starters, mainly because he often makes some strange choices for someone that you normally think as liking strange movies. His picks are usually a decent mix of small and large flicks that most everyone has heard of in some capacity. But there’s always some questionable stuff, just check out his number eleven best pick this year. I’m also a huge fan of lists, especially from people who work in the industry. One of my all-time favorite movies and movie quotes is from High Fidelity: “I agreed that what really matters is what you like, not what you are like… Books, records, films – these things matter. Call me shallow but it’s the f***in’ truth“. If you’re interesting in mine and Jason’s best and worst picks from 2011 check out this podcast. One note before we get going, they deleted his worst of list off The Quentin Tarantino Archives site, but it’s the Internet, and once you put something out there, it’s out there for good. So here’s the best and worst lists along with a nice try list.

    Drive and Drive Angry sharing space on the same list??? Are you kidding me!?!? Drive Angry was utter garbage. I need to know what the hell Tarantino found even the slightest bit enjoyable in that steaming pile of $h!t!
