Great list.

I've seen all but "Hi Diddle Diddle". Just saw "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly" on the big screen @ Film Forum a few weeks ago. It's Leone's director's cut. Amazing film!

Poster Boys
Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, the B-movie-loving auteurs behind ''Grindhouse,'' show EW's Chris Nashawaty -- and now the rest of us -- their 10 favorite movie posters


Quentin Tarantino picks: Coffy (1973)

''Not only is it a great image of [Pam Grier], it's got great type — it's the epitome of a great exploitation poster... and every version of it in foreign countries rocked,'' says Tarantino, who, more than two decades after Coffy, directed Grier in his own Jackie Brown.


Robert Rodriguez picks: The Road Warrior (1981)

Otherwise known, of course, as Mad Max 2, the action flick starring then-up-and-coming Aussue Mel Gibson.


Tarantino picks: Where Eagles Dare (1968)

''I love the great drawn action posters,'' says Tarantino about the one-sheet for this WWII flick, starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood.


Rodriguez picks: Scanners (1981)

David Cronenberg's sci-fi/horror flick about a ruthless group of powerful, mind-controlling psychics hell-bent on world domination.


Tarantino picks: Dark of the Sun (1968)

Also known as The Mercenaries, this one stars Rod Taylor and Jim Brown as — you guessed it — mercenaries, who travel across the Congo in search of a fortune in diamonds.


Rodriguez picks: Escape From New York (1981)

It's the dystopian cult classic that introduced the world to antihero Snake Plissken (originally played by Kurt Russell, a star of Grindhouse); will the poster for the planned remake (to star 300's Gerard Butler) be as cool?


Tarantino picks: Thriller (a.k.a. They Call Her One Eye) 1974)

In 2003, Tarantino told EW this Swedish revenge flick provided the primary inspiration for his Kill Bill, and was directly referenced in Daryl Hannah's one-eyed assassin. ''They actually have XXX scenes in the movie,'' said the director, who gave it to Hannah to watch. ''And Daryl said, 'Quentin! You gave me porno to watch as homework!' I was like, 'They're only certain scenes. And they weren't sex scenes. They were just degrading.'''


Rodriguez picks: Dawn of the Dead (1978)

No surprise that Rodriguez — the director of Grindhouse's zombie half, called Planet Terror — finds inspiration in George A. Romero's classic zombie movies; this poster touts the series' second flick, considered by many to be its best.


Tarantino's pick: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)

Simply ''a classic,'' Tarantino says of Jack Davis' poster, which features all the characters from the madcap ensemble comedy.


Rodriguez picks: The Evil Dead (1981)

Sam Raimi's fantastically gory cult horror film, starring Bruce Campbell.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

PS, here's Tarantino listing his Top 20 movies since he started to direct in 1992. If you remotely find him hubristic and obnoxious, you might want to skip this or you might just want to strangle your computer. The best part of it might be when the director calls, M. Night Shyamalan, "M. Night Shamala-ding-dong." Tarantino says "Matrix 2 & 3" "ruined the mythology" of the Matrix films and therefore bumps down the original "Matrix" on his list because of that and the only filmmaker to find two slots on his list is Boon Jong Ho ("The Host," "Memories Of Murder").



Here's his picks, "Battle Royale," "Anything Else, "Audition," "Blade," "Boogie Nights," "Dazed & Confused," "Dogville," "Fight Club," "Friday," "The Host," "The Insider," "Joint Security Area," "Lost In Translation," "The Matrix," Memories of Murder," "Police Story 3," "Shaun of the Dead," "Speed," "Team America," "Unbreakable."

Anything Else is Woody Allen's worst movie.  I can't imagine how he would actually explain this choice.

Man, that was really strange that he named 'Anything Else'. I don't hate it but it really isn't Woody's best.

Fuck yeah friday, i think bad woody allen beats most peoples shit on a great day. Furthermore, i understand it has Jason Bates in it, but Woody is funny as ever in it.  Probably not one of my favorites in the past 17 yrs, but hey, who am i
it's not the wrench, it's the plumber.

Easy, when you're not a huge fan of a filmmaker, you like their middleground work because it more reminds you of your favorite movies.

as far as the Asian ones go...

no chunking express?
his supercop choice was also questionable.
but it's true, The Blade is one of the greatest movies ever made.  Good on him.

The American choices are kinda funny.  I think it's just weird that he's picking such big movies when in other interviews he likes to drop festival films or cult films.

Yeah that one is truly baffling.

I don't understand it being on the list, especially so high, but I've always found Anything Else to be a pretty good WA movie. Certainly a little under appreciated. Now if Cassandra's Dream was on there, yikes.

The Hollywood Reporter had a chance to ask Quentin Tarantino about his favorite films of 2009, and the filmmaker responded with the following eight movies…

1. JJ Abrams’ Star Trek
2. Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell
3. Judd Apatow’s Funny People
4. Jason Reitman’s Up in the Air
5. Prachya Pinkaew’s Chocolate
6. Jody Hill’s Observe and Report
7. Lee Daniels’ Precious
8. Lone Scherfig’s An Education

Tarantino admitted that he has yet to see James Cameron’s Avatar, Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones or Clint Eastwood’s Invictus, and that he needs to revisit films like Bright Star and District 9, as they might have the power to rise into his top 8. He also agreed that his film could not qualify for his list.
