Got the magazine and found QT’s list (on page 124). It has changed a bit:


  1. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
  2. Rio Bravo
  3. Blow-out
  4. Taxi Driver
  5. His Girl Friday
  6. 5 Fingers of Death / King Boxer
  7. Pandora’s Box
  8. Carrie
  9. Unfaithfully Yours
  10. 5 Graves to Cairo



    He also added Jaws as #11. Hmm, was not aware of that.



    Choices 2, 3 and 4 are marked as “interchangeable”.

were there any more Numbers after 11 ??

Oh wow, that is very exciting to me. I have bought every movie on QT’s top ten list because his taste in movies is great. (Yes, even Hi Diddle Diddle) OK, that means I have to buy three new movies: Pandora’s Box, Unfaithfully Yours and 5 Graves to Cairo.



rushes off to find DVD versions



EDIT: is that the 1929 german film Pandora’s Box??

EDIT2: Unfaithfully yours by Preston Sturges of the 80’s one?

What you see is what you get. There was nothing else after #11. It was supposed to be a top 10-list, but I’m guessing QT felt he had to add Jaws.



Pandora’s Box is probably the 1929-film, yes. I think I have that one actually.

Empire is fucking sweet. Every list is tricky but they have a fine balance between mainstream and genuine love for movies.



I bought the one with the Lost in Translation cover :angel:


#25

Where could you get some of these? Or did I miss the boat? I’m gonna cry myself to sleep if I did cause a lot of these are pretty damn cool. I’d have to get the Tarantino ones.

with Quentin, you never know. :wink:



5 Graves to Kairo is good, but I don’t know if it’s my favourite Wilder movie.

Well I loved the list by QT. I love every list by QT.

The Good the Bad and The Ugly & Carrie will be in my top ten also!!!I am a DePalma fan just like QT!

I adore QT’s tastes!!!

The top movies of all time. How do they compile this list, is it sales , critics, voters. A lot of the movies on the list I just can’t relate to so I wounder is it me or the list maker?
