Quentin Tarantino offers up his picks for the best movies of 2011

With every film critics’ group, major Hollywood organization, and pajama-clad movie blogger making their lists of the best films of 2011, Quentin Tarantino wanted to get in on the action, so, for the second year in a row, he’s served up his own personal ranking of the best cinematic offerings of the year. You might expect a hardcore cinephile like Tarantino to go with some obscure choices for his favorites—an Indonesian women-in-prison exploitation movie, say, or a Korean horror flick—but his picks are surprisingly mainstream. Last year Tarantino named Toy Story 3 as the best film of 2010, and this year his choice for the top slot is Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. That’s not to say his choices are all conventional: Rise of the Planet of the Apes at number 2? The Artist and Our Idiot Brother tied for 10th place? The Three Musketeers at number 11? (We’re guessing that one’s a joke.) See the list at EW.
