"This Is the End"
Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino sat out the ten best lists last year because he was in fevered production on "Django Unchained." This year he has already posted his alphabetical ten best list of 2013 so far on his site. 

While the Oscar-winner is an Academy member, don't look for his taste to be replicated by the Academy at large. Of his list, I could see Richard Linklater's "Before Midnight," Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine" and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" gaining real traction with Oscar voters. 

1.  Afternoon Delight (Jill Soloway)

2.  Before Midnight (Richard Linklater)

3.  Blue Jasmine (Woody Allen)

4.  The Conjuring (James Wan)

5.  Drinking Buddies (Joe Swanberg)

6.  Frances Ha (Noah Baumbach)

7.  Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón)

8.  Kick Ass 2 (Jeff Wadlow)

9.  The Lone Ranger (Gore Verbinski)

10.  This Is The End (Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg)

'The Lone Ranger'

    Why have you stuck numbers by the list when it's ALPHABETICAL?

    QT always has very weird Top 10 lists.

    Ordinarily I would leave tarantino's pics strictly alone. (he's too kistchy and trashy for my elevated sensibilities ;) ) but this bears saying.

    When a director confuses STUDIO BOMBS of a direct to video nature for REDNECKY connected with the people kistch, you know he has lodged himself firmly in his own self reinforcing echo chamber.

    QT will make a good cinemax programmer now. He's reached his peter principle.

    Really weird that the guy who made the best western of 2012, listed the worst western of 2013 amongst his favs

    Except that an awful lot of people, especially those over 49, agree with Quentin that THE LONE RANGER is a splendid film.
