478px-quentin_tarantino_berlin_film_festival_2009It's film awards season (here's an ongoing scorecard), which also makes it a good time to reflect on your personal favorites from the past year. I wish Netflix would let me sort the films I've rated by the date I rated them, which would allow me to provide an easy answer to "seen anything good lately?" Even this very handy script does not allow that. But I have some issues with Netflix, and this post is not about them but about Quentin Tarantino, who recently shared his own personal top 10 movies from 2011:

  • 1. Midnight In Paris
  • 2. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes
  • 3. Moneyball
  • 4. The Skin I Live In
  • 5. X-Men: First Class
  • 6. Young Adult
  • 7. Attack The Block
  • 8. Red State
  • 9. Warrior
  • 10. The Artist / Our Idiot Brother (tie)
  • 11. The Three Musketeers

Okay, so it was a top twelve, really. I haven't yet seen all of these, but I would definitely have Contagion, Margin Call, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and Beginners in my own personal top 10. What about you?
