Quentin Tarantio

While looking through most critics’ best of 2011 write-ups, I mostly kept wondering when we were going to get Quentin Tarantino‘s list. His best of 2010 rankings had some odd picks, by most standards. And, to no real surprise, his 2011 list has some… unconventional picks as well. For example, Tarantino counts The Three Musketeers and Red State amongst the best, while Oren Moverman‘s fantastic Rampart made his worst section. You gotta give the man credit, he’s unquestionably got an acquired taste and stands out.

QT’s best 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)
  11. The Three Musketeers

QT’s Unranked Worst of 2011:

  • Sucker Punch
  • Potiche (Trophy Wife)
  • Miral
  • Insidious
  • Rampart
  • Straw Dogs
  • Paranormal Activity 3
  • Meek’s Cutoff

Tarantino also wrote up a few other categories, including “Nice Try,” “Honorable Mentions,” “Best Director,” “Best Original Screenplay,” etc. If you want to see even more interesting picks, then head over to The Quentin Tarantino Archives.
