Quentin Tarantino Unveils His Unique Top Eleven Films of 2011 List
Oh this is going to be good. You can always count on Quentin Tarantino to deliver a unique, potentially controversial, yet still reasonable list of his favorite films of the year. The Quentin Tarantino Archives has exclusively debuted his list of favorite films from 2011, and it's quite a unique pick this time. Last year he had some weird choices like Cyrus and Jackass 3-D, this time he tosses on Moneyball, Red State, Warrior, Young Adult, and the oddest of all, The Three Musketeers. He also lists a few of his other favorites, like director and screenplay, as well as his least favorites, which I've added below, too. Read on for the full list!
For the full unveiling, head over to the QT Archives, where they've got everything else he lists including "others considered" and the "Nice Try Award", but otherwise here are Tarantino's top 2011 favorite films.

1. Midnight In Paris
2. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes
4. The Skin I Live In
5. X-Men: First Class
6. Young Adult

10. The Artist / Our Idiot Brother [tied]

Tarantino's unranked Worst Films of 2011:
Potiche (Trophy Wife)
Paranormal Activity 3
I am a bit let down that he put Drive in the "Nice Try Award" category, as I thought he would've loved that film as much as I did. Though I am happy he added Warrior, as that's one of my favorites of 2011 as well and deserving of all the acclaim its getting, well after it was released. Rise of the Planet of the Apes as well is a fantastic choice, another movie that surprised everyone last year by being so damn good. I'm also a very big fan of Midnight in Paris, The Skin I Live In, Attack the Block, even Red State and The Artist. But I did not like Young Adult or care that much for X-Men: First Class, and I don't think anyone has any idea how Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers made it on there. Maybe he just thought it was entertaining?
