Quentin Tarantino’s Favourite Movies from 1992 to 2009

For all those of you (yours truly included), who complain that movies got boring and unoriginal these days, here is a top 20 list from Quentin Tarantino.  This was done back in 2009, but I’m sure there are still a few movies on that list that you haven’t seen.  There are quite a few that I haven’t seen.

This was originally in the Miramax article, which only includes links to buy the movies on Amazon.  I though it would be slightly more useful to have the same list with links to IMDb instead  I’ve also created a public IMDb list with these movies.

  1. Battle Royale (Kinji Fukasaku, 2000)
  2. Anything Else (Woody Allen, 2003)
  3. Audition (Takashi Miike, 1999)
  4. The Blade (Hark Tsui, 1995)
  5. Boogie Nights (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1997)
  6. Dazed & Confused (Richard Linklater, 1993)
  7. Dogville (Lars von Trier, 2003)
  8. Fight Club (David Fincher, 1999)
  9. Friday (F. Gary Gray, 1995)
  10. The Host (Joon-ho Bong, 2006)
  11. The Insider (Michael Mann, 1999)
  12. Joint Security Area (Chan-wook Park, 2000)
  13. Lost In Translation (Sofia Coppola, 2003)
  14. The Matrix (Andy Wachowski & Larry Wachowski, 1999)
  15. Memories of Murder (Joon-ho Bong, 2003)
  16. Supercop (Stanley Tong, 1992)
  17. Shaun of the Dead (Edgar Wright, 2004)
  18. Speed (Jan de Bont, 1994)
  19. Team America (Trey Parker, 2004)
  20. Unbreakable (M. Night Shyamalan, 2000)

P.S.: Obviously, the fact that Quentin Tarantino liked the movie doesn’t necessarily mean that you will like it too.  This is just a suggested “to watch” list with a bit of variety in genres, directors, and actors.
