What can we say? This man loves to share great movies with us. 

There is no bigger cinephile than Quentin Tarantino. He seems to have watched almost everything that was ever made and distributed. Not only is he responsible for creating some of the most influential films in cinema history, but he pays homage to and praises the films across the century that has found a special place in his heart. 

While we have covered a few of Tarantino’s favorite films like Battle Royal, which he recently stated in an episode of The Video Archives Podcast with Roger Avary that The Hunger Games ripped off, and spaghetti westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Tarantino has revised his “Best Of” list, adding a few more films to add to your watchlist. 

Check out this updated list of films Tarantino has claimed to be his favorite movies of all time. You can also check out this article that lists the other 20 films on Tarantino’s “Best Movies of All Time” list.
