    Quentin Tarantino’s Top Ten of 2013… So Far
    An interesting list considering how much more there is to see

    It’s only October so for Quentin Tarantino to offer his top ten of 2013 right now clearly makes it a “so far” list, so while it may be incomplete it’s still interesting, especially considering the addition of films such as Kick-Ass 2 and The Lone Ranger. I love the fact he has Before Midnight so high and of the films listed I actually haven’t seen Afternoon Delight or Drinking Buddies, the latter of which seems to be something a lot of people are enjoying.

    Considering the number of high profile films still to come it’s actually a great time to make a top ten of the year as we await the release of the big boys still to come. Perhaps I’ll take Tarantino’s lead and do the same at the start of the week.

    It’s also important to note, if you couldn’t tell, these are listed in alphabetical order so don’t get upset with the placement.

    • Afternoon Delight (dir. Jill Soloway)
    • Before Midnight (dir. Richard Linklater)
    • Blue Jasmine (dir. Woody Allen)
    • The Conjuring (dir. James Wan)
    • Drinking Buddies (dir. Joe Swanberg)
    • Frances Ha (dir. Noah Baumbach)
    • Gravity (dir. Alfonso Cuarón)
    • Kick-Ass 2 (dir. Jeff Wadlow)
    • The Lone Ranger (dir. Gore Verbinski)
    • This is the End (dirs. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg)

    Did the writer of this piece actually say he was pleased to see “Before Midnight” was “so high”.  Um, pretty sure the list is alphabetical, no?  LOL

    I guess he doesnt take his own advice.

    This list is so shameless. I love that about the guy. What a mix of films. Happy to see This Is the End up there. I wonder what he’ll end up with by feb.

    Interesting list, I’m a bit surprised to see The Lone Ranger and Kick Ass 2 on there though.

    I concur. It looks like Tarantino approaches the list with a very open mind. I think this is because Tarantino has no inner monologue whatsoever. If he is asked a question I don’t think he has any way to self-censor himself.

    Interesting. Im surprised Kick-Ass 2 & Lone Ranger made the list. Quentin is definitely an unpredictable guy.

    My guess is This Is The End or Gravity end up as his number one film of the year.

    I wasn’t expecting Lone Ranger, but makes sense, Tarantino loves Bruckenheimer-produced films and has no shame over loving blockbusters, like Green Lantern making his list a few years ago.

    Here’s his list from 2011.

    Quentin Tarantino’s official Top Eleven of 2011

    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 / Our Idiot Brother (tie)

     Love some of the films on this list. I wonder if he has Django Unchained in his top ten for 2012?

    Midnight In Paris and Moneyball were in my top three for 2011.

    As for his rankings, they’re quite great because of the varying genres. No other film watcher probably has Before Midnight, This is The End, and The Lone Ranger on their ‘best of’ list.

    Before Midnight is my favorite film of the year so far, so it is nice to see one of my favorite directors surprisingly love it.

    Very pleased with his inclusion of Drinking Buddies, a very good underrated film.

    I havent seen this film. I’m entirely unfamiliar with his work. Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll check it out.

    I love how he admires Woody Allen and went with “Frances Ha” too.

    Who really believes these lists are by QT??
    I am too cynical and dislike him as a film maker
    to take any of this seriously..or even respect
    his so-called choices..
