Quentin Tarantino’s Best of List for 2011
Quentin Tarantino, well known for combining styles from his favorite genres into brand new mash-ups has released his own best of list for 2011 and it’s about as odd as you might expect.
Since Tarantino once said that he stole from every movie ever made I guess he will be using them at some point in the future, maybe already in his upcoming Django Unchained southern project.
Dark horses which had never been thought of and which had never even observed in the Tarantino’s list to include turds of misery like Red State and The Three Musketeers.
Turns out, I feel and probably not the only one to have been a bit let down that he put Drive in the Nice Try Award category as well as run through the movies is the tie between amazing silent movie The Artist and the utterly average comedy Our Idiot Brother.
On the other hand, it’s nice to see Tarantino gives some shine to The Skin I Live In that didn’t get the love it might be deserved.
However, tastes and colors should not be discussed.
