Quentin Tarantino’s Top 20 Movies Since 1992
Quentin Tarantino lists his Top 20 favorite movies made since he directed his first movie in 1992. You can’t argue with these, he’s not saying they are the best, he’s just saying they were his favorites. Fair enough. I’ve seen 15 of the 20. And many of them are very good. “Battle Royale” and “Shaun of the Dead” are two of my personal favorites as well.
- Battle Royale – Kinji Fukasaku
- Anything Else – Woody Allen
- Audition – Takashi Miike
- The Blade – Hark Tsui
- Boogie Nights – Paul Thomas Anderson
- Dazed & Confused – Richard Linklater
- Dogville – Lars von Trier
- Fight Club – David Fincher
- Friday – F. Gary Gray
- The Host – Joon-ho Bong
- The Insider – Michael Mann
- Joint Security Area – Chan-wook Park
- Lost In Translation – Sofia Coppola
- The Matrix – Larry and Andy Wachowski
- Memories of Murder – Joon-ho Bong
- Supercop (aka Police Story 3) – Stanley Tong
- Shaun of the Dead – Edgar Wright
- Speed – Jan de Bont
- Team America – Trey Parker
- Unbreakable – M. Night Shyamalan
To this day I still find “Lost in Translation” insufferable. A narcisistic vanity project with no dramatic conflict whatsover. This movie could have been 20 minutes long and would hve been the exact same thing. That would have spared me an hour and a half of my life because I can only glide on mood and tone for so long.
But I’m glad he mentioned “The Insider.” “heat is still the top Michael Mann film for me but I’m glad this one is getting some mention.
”Lost In Translation”? ”Anything Else”? ”Friday”? I didn’t know Tarantino was a sensitive type of a person. ”Toy Story 3”, ”Tangled” and ”Midnight in Paris” are also some of his favorites since 2010
Hello I am so grateful I found your site, I really found
you by error, while I was browsing on Bing for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would
just like to say thanks a lot for a remarkable
post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the moment but I have saved it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the superb work.
Well thanks Jocelyn. Glad you are finding the site useful.
He dated Sofia Coppola for a while.
It’s true! I do think Lost in Translation is a great film though so I don’t fault him for choosing it.
Can’t say the same about “Anything else”. I saw it and don’t remember a single line, scene, character…nothing. Nothing about it stuck with me.
Such is the subjective nature of film though I guess.
