Quentin Tarantino Reveals His Best And Worst Of 2011

The highly acclaimed Reservoir Dogs director, Quentin Tarantino, recently released a list of his Top 11 favorite movies of 2011, via The Quentin Tarantino Archives. The list is extremely varied, including a bunch of both mainstream and indie films. Although, some entries are quite unexpected, for example, The Three Musketeers was Tarantino’s 11th favorite movie. The number 1 spot was awarded to Woody Allen’s charming, Midnight in Paris, a complete opposite film compared to that of his favorite in 2010, a la, Toy Story 3.

Alas, with the good, always comes the bad and so Tarantino has also included a quite predictable worst films of 2011 list. Although, not content with just a Best and Worst list, he also revealed his favorite original screenplays, others films that just missed out on his Top 11 list and a cheeky Nice Try Award.
