A rather unpredictable list of films crossed my eye this morning. But before I go into that, imagine the film taste of director Quentin Tarantino: Japanese sword fighting, 70s gangster flicks, bla-/e-xploitation, Hong Kong action cinema and a couple of other gritty sub genres. Now let us take a look at his favourite film of last year: Toy Story 3. Do you notice the discrepancy? The complete list by the man that brought you Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds has some earnest drama in it and even more friendly animation (Tangled at number 5 and How to Train Your Dragon at 17). Not yet released in The Netherlands, but highly anticipated by me, yours truly, are The Fighter at number 14 and the Coen’s western remake True Grit at 6. I wonder where he left Black Swan though. See below for the complete list as seen at the Tarantino Archives:
