Quentin Tarantino’s Top 20 Films Of 2010

For a good while now, that most voracious of cineastes, Mr. Quentin Tarantino has annually been asked for – and happily provided – his list of favourite films of the year. Here’s his top 20 for 2010.

  1. Toy Story 3
  2. The Social Network
  3. Animal Kingdom
  4. I Am Love
  5. Tangled
  6. True Grit
  7. The Town
  8. Greenberg
  9. Cyrus
  10. Enter The Void
  11. Kick-Ass
  12. Knight and Day
  13. Get Him To The Greek
  14. The Fighter
  15. The Kings Speech
  16. The Kids Are All Right
  17. How To Train Your Dragon
  18. Robin Hood
  19. Amer
  20. Jackass 3-D

This list was provided by The Quentin Tarantino Archives, who call it an exclusive and appear to have procured it directly from the man himself. Only one title on the list was accompanied by any form of commentary, and that was 10. Enter the Void, about which Tarantino said:

Hands down best credit scene of the year … Maybe best credit scene of the decade. One of the greatest in cinema history.

Here are those very credits now:

Okay, they certainly engage you, so I’ll give him that. But the rest of the film…? And the… um… climax?

Incidentally, eight of those picks were in my own 51 Films from 2010 That You Really Shouldn’t Have Missed, another is in my upcoming 25 Exciting Films For 2011 That You Might Not Know About Yet, and two more I haven’t seen yet. How would your list compare?
