Tarantino Promos Inglourious Basterds, Top 20 Films

Tarantino Promos Inglourious Basterds, Top 20 Films

First, Quentin Tarantino is one of the most entertaining people to be around, period. So put him on the campaign trail for a new movie and we get to enjoy the results. (Is he really going to do a Len Deighton movie? The Ipcress File gets my vote.)

Here the writer-director names his Top 20 Movies since since he became a director 17 years ago. Guess what? If you know Tarantino, they all make perfect sense. He’s not pretentious or trendy and he knows what he likes and why. Do I agree with all of them? No. We don’t have the same taste. Anything Else is one of the most irritating Woody Allen movies ever. I love that Tarantino appreciates the craziness of Lars von Trier’s Dogville. I never saw Battle Royale, Blade, Audition, The Host, Memories of Murder or Joint Security Area. Guess I have some homework to do.

First among all others: Battle Royale
Then, in alphabetical order:
Anything Else
Blade (Tsui Hark)
Boogie Nights
Dazed & Confused
Fight Club
The Host
The Insider
Joint Security Area
Lost In Translation
The Matrix
Memories of Murder
Police Story 3
Shaun of the Dead
Team America
