So because I like to think of myself as a bit of a movie nerd, I did get a little excited when I saw this video today on You Tube, featuring Quentin Tarantino talking about his Top 20 films that he's liked since he became a director himself, so since 1992. It wasn't until I checked his IMDB that I realized I pretty much like everything he's ever directed. Which is odd, because now that I think about it, I'm not sure I would mention him if someone asked me who my favorite director was. Isn't that weird? I guess now I'll know I'd mention him as A director I really like if I'm ever asked.
In a sidenote, is it really fangirl-y or nerdy of me to be proud that I love most of the films on this list? And if you care, here's the video. Oh, and if you can't watch the video for whatever reason, he says that his absolute favorite movie of them all is the first one he lists, but that the rest are just done in alphabetical order. And, without further ado (with 5 words or less commentary):
