Quentin Tarantino loves, loves, loves movies.  The filmmaker has made this abundantly clear not only through the various and obscure influences gleaned in his own films but also in his many lengthy discussions on any number of topics relating to film.  Tarantino makes a point to go to the movies as often as possible, and recently he has taken to publicly publishing a list of his Top 10 movies from each year.  He took 2012 off since he was understandably busy working on Django Unchained, but his 2011 and 2010 lists were gleefully varied, with movies like Midnight in Paris and The Social Network ranking right up there with The Three Musketeers and Jackass 3D.

It appears that Tarantino plans on publishing another full Top 10 list later this year, but he’s gotten a jump on things and released a list of his 10 favorite films of 2013 thus far.  As expected, there are more than a couple of surprising choices.  Hit the jump to take a look.

frances-ha-posterCourtesy of The Tarantino Film Archives, here is the filmmaker’s Top 10 Films of 2013 – So Far, in alphabetical order:

Afternoon Delight (Jill Soloway)

Before Midnight (Richard Linklater)

Blue Jasmine (Woody Allen)

The Conjuring (James Wan)

Drinking Buddies (Joe Swanberg)

Frances Ha (Noah Baumbach)

Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón)

Kick-Ass 2 (Jeff Wadlow)

The Lone Ranger (Gore Verbinski)

This Is the End (Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg)

Midnight in Paris topped Tarantino’s 2011 list so the inclusion of Blue Jasmine isn’t a big surprise, and he also singled out Kick-Ass in 2010 so it’s fitting that he would throw the sequel in there this year, but QT is likely one of the very, very few to single out The Lone Ranger.  Nevertheless, this list is wonderfully eclectic, with a nice mix of indies, dramas, comedies, and blockbusters.  Again it would be nice to see some sort of explanation for each choice, but it’s nice to get a peek into QT’s current tastes regardless.  It’ll be interesting to see what makes the final cut after the next few months.
