Quentin Tarantino Lists His Favorite Films of 2011, Likes Feet

The Golden Globes are over and The Oscars are about a month away, so earlier this week the Quentin Tarantino Archives released a list of the director's 12 favorite films of 2011.  There were only supposed to be 11 but there was a tie, it seems.  Anyway, I'm sure most have already seen this but I'm using it as an excuse to post this gif.  Hypnotic isn't it?

I have to be honest.  I haven't seen a single movie on this list so I can't really comment on his choices.  I'm sure he knows what he's talking about though, because cocaine heightens the senses.

Visit the Quentin Tarantino Archives to see the rest of the list including his least favorite films of 2011.  In years past he also provided lists of his all-time favorite Spaghetti Westerns and exploitation films, so check those out along with updates on his current project Django Unchained.

I didn't make it past Midnight in Paris before disagreeing enough not to bother reading the rest. The premise of Midnight in Paris doesn't even appeal to a literature lover such as myself because the motivations of the primary characters have been done so many times in popular culture.

Y'know, I can't blame his choices only because 2011 was a pretty bad year in my estimation. More sequels, more bullshit, more obvious-money-grubbing choices.

More remakes.

Admittedly I've heard some awfully good things about The Hangover 2 as well as Moneyball, and I personally happen to bargain-bin like The Green Hornet. Certainly not movie-ticket like, but happily bargain-bin. Hell, I don't even like Seth Rogan and I dug that shit.

On the other hand, nothin' but bad 'bout the rest. Haven't seen 'em m'self yet, so I'm not going to be all "IT'S TRASH!" yet, but I'm certain I'll see 'em sometime in the next ten years on cable or netflix if anything.

THEN I'll hate 'em. As is, right now I just have a mild discontent towards 'em.
