Quentin Tarantino’s top 10 films of 2013… so far

- October 7th, 2013

There is still three months left in the year, but Quentin Tarantino has already released his list of 2013′s best films. Billed as “an exclusive gift during the government shutdown,” the Quentin Archives has released QT’s favourite flicks of 2013.

Because he was busy putting the final touches on Django Unchained, the writer-director didn’t list his top films last year. But his lists in 2010 and 2011 included films like Toy Story 3, The Social Network, X-Men: First Class and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.

One huge surprise on Tarantino’s 2013 list is his inclusion of last summer’s much-maligned Lone Ranger. Based on his inclusion, as well as my pal Bruce Kirkland’s review, I will definitely give it a look.

I haven’t seen everything on this list, but Gravity was a real standout for me. The Alfonso Cuarón-directed space thriller is quite possibly the best 3D film I’ve seen. Before Midnight was also an enjoyable instalment in Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy’s decades-spanning love story.

Here are QT’s faves of 2013 (so far) in alphabetical order. Let us know in the comments what you’ve dug the most. You can also check out my top 10 QT scenes that I assembled for his birthday earlier this year.


1. Afternoon Delight (Jill Soloway)

2. Before Midnight (Richard Linklater)

3. Blue Jasmine (Woody Allen)

4. The Conjuring (James Wan)

5. Drinking Buddies (Joe Swanberg)

6. Frances Ha (Noah Baumbach)

7. Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón)

8. Kick Ass 2 (Jeff Wadlow)

9. The Lone Ranger (Gore Verbinski)

10. This Is The End (Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg)

    “New World” by far and away the best movie of 2013 so far.I agree “The End” did suck.
