Which QT book? I saw Perfect the other night and can’t believe that this okay movie should be a real favorite of Tarantino. Probably he mentioned it some time only because of Travolta.


#89

I think it was Tarantino by Jim Smith. I don’t know for definite as all my Tarantino books are at home.

Thanks. Never heard of it.

That wasn’t the book I got it from, but if it’s in there too then fair enough.


#93

It’s title by title, in the same order, verbatim, the last page of Shooting from the Hip. It’s even called the Unofficial Quentin Tarantino Coolest Movies of All Time List (and subject to change daily).


#94

i saw this list (with the exact same title) in a couple of other books… it is ten years old, so i hope perfect is out from the current one ;D the weird thing is that he doesn’t mention blow out as one of his 3 favorite films of all time.


#95

Hustle & Flow is one of his favorite films of the 00’s I’ve read somewhere.


#96

Rio Bravo is such a great movie, I have to agree with Tarantino on that one. Damn. I love so many movies, I don’t think I could pick just 10. 100, maybe, but not 10.


#97

I, like some here, love Spaghetti Westerns. Besides The Man With No Name/Dollars Trilogy what Spaghetti Westerns does Q love? I’d love to get them on DVD! Can anybody help?


#98

On may 6th, 2008 at The Cinefamily (Silent Movie Theatre) there was a Enzo G. Castellari double feature with Battle Squadron and High Crime. Q & A afterwards with the director and Quentin Tarantino. One of QT’s favorite macaroni combat movies are Battle Squadron, From Hell to Victory and Dirty Heroes. About Battle Squadron: “I think it makes Atonement looks like a piece of shit.” About Castellari’s crime movies: "Along that High Crime is a terrific movie and was so influential, it started the relationship with Franco Nero. And Street Law, even a bigger hit, you must see Street Law, especially the opening action scene is terrific."

#99

Do anybody know the list “On the top Of his Head”-list (of favourite movies) from Tarantino?

It was released in Entertainment magazine 2003 (included All About Lily …)?

Can anyone release it here?


#100

Via text it says in the opening credits of Kill Bill Vol.1 that it is “dedicated to master filmmaker Kinji Fukasaku” what is Quentin’s absolute fave Kinji Fukasaku film?



What is Quentin’s absolute fave Charles Bronson film?


#101

I know QT was inspired alot by Fukasaku’s yakuza film Black Lizard for Kill Bill.



His favorite Bronson film: Maybe Mr Majestyk. Thats the one he always references in his films.
